I’m making my way through Tinkers, this year’s recent Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Paul Harding. Yesterday I took it to a coffee shop, had an iced coffee and a cookie and sat out on the patio and read for an hour and a half of uninterrupted bliss. I’m torn between really loving the book, […]

Marshmallow Pepys

December 25, 2008

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! From NPR The Writer’s Almanac: On this day in 1666, Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary: 25. Christmas day. Lay pretty long in bed. And then rise, leaving my wife desirous to sleep, having sat up till 4 this morning seeing her maids make mince-pies. I go to church, where our […]

See You At Lazy Bear 2008

July 29, 2008

Hi all, No blogging from me for the next five-six days. I’m going camping in the woods of Guerneville for the annual Lazy Bear weekend, with Ted, Eduardo (yes, we are taking Eduardo Camping–scary, eh?), the Jasons, Charlar, and Aaron from NYC. I promise pics when I get back. Have a fun, safe, happy weekend.

Good ‘Stache

May 24, 2008

I’ve written about Etsy before. If you don’t know Etsy, you should. It’s the coolest site on the web. Ok, well, it’s the coolest site on the web if you’re into DIY (do-it-yourself) crafts, projects, art, fashions, etc. I don’t remember how I discovered Etsy–oh, wait, yes I do, it was an ad in ReadyMade […]

Strips for Free

May 14, 2008

Now I’m a Believer

April 12, 2008

I’m so digging on The Believer Magazine’s 2008 Film Issue. This is the first time i’ve ever bought a copy. I’ve read it at friends’ houses, i’ve been to the website– i’ve long been a fan of Heidi Julavitz (In grad-school I studied for a couple of semester’s under her hubby Ben Marcus). But for […]

Frenzied Love Making

April 9, 2008

I’m a bit swamped this week, what with working on my book/chapters and grading and preparing for this Literary Arts Festival at one of the colleges where I teach Creative Writing (i’m giving a talk for their “Writer as Activist” Festival Theme–but more on that another time). In the meantime, here is one of my […]

“I noticed the bushy sand-colored mustache that curled at his lips’ corners.” –from the novel, Mysterious Skin, by Scott Heim. I decided it was time for a change, so I shaved off part of my Morgan Spurlock— Or my Morgan Spurlock-inspired goatee thingy. I’ve had it since about 2005, I think. Here’s a pic of […]
