It’s real! It’s happening! It’s Literary Death Match Orlando episode 2.
I’ll be the literary merit judge at this one, which gives me tremendous opportunities to be hilariously East German or Cold War Russian. It’ll be on November 13 at the Mad Cow Theatre and you should pre-order your tickets here.
I bought Death Cab For Cutie’s first album, Something About Airplanes, the other day, and the great thing about it was the inclusion of their second or third show ever at The Crocodile Club because it really gives you a window of where the bad was and where the band is now.
One of the projects I’m working on, The Terrarium of an Emotard, is a hybrid of poems from the early 2000s, late 90s and flash non-fiction talking about where I was mentally, and sometimes physically, when I wrote those poems. My editor has taken it through the wringer and I have to attack it again for the fourth draft. It’s going to be really good, despite the poems, once it’s all done.
The latest edition of my column up on Specter Magazine is up. You should read it here.
