My Largehearted Boy Book Notes post for The Obese.  With playable playlist including Pet Shop Boys and The Kinks.

One of my dad's concerts is the National Gallery of Art's latest podcast!


All cover images from international Vogue magazines in 2010, overlayed on top of each other. Hot.

The Obese now available on Kindle!

Hm, what else.  Viral promotion for The Obese continues!

Watched MTV's I Just Want My Pants Back last night.  A better depiction of present-day Brooklyn than the terrible Bored to Death.

Finished reading Don Winslow's The Power of the Dog, which was pretty epic.

This new blogger interface is confusing me.

I saw some The Cottage stuff this week!  That was cool.

I'm incredibly busy but not making much money.  That's disorienting.  But that's what happens when you write most of what you write on spec, I guess.  Also, I have to do my taxes.

OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE of The Obese from Lazy Fascist Press.  Order now!  Give to your loved ones for Valentine's Day. 


Last night I watched Smash.  I think I actually like that show.  I loathe Katherine McPhee's character so much (and I like her rival, played by Megan Hilty) that it's fun to watch.  I hope it doesn't turn into a triumphant story of ascendance.  That wouldn't be a very realistic story of the Broadway experience...


Also, Stainless by Todd Grimson was just republished.  One of the only vampire novels I've ever loved.  Read it if you haven't!
