(Gator on hat)
Gchat with Michelle Legro (1/16/09):
11:49 AMme: i do like the idea of man's archetypal conflict though
man vs nature
man vs moth
man vs the unknown
Michelle: ponies vs. self
me: my brain just exploded!
11:50 AM Michelle: llama vs. the unknown
me: gator vs hat
Michelle: know I just imagine a pissed off gator wearing a hat
me: i think that could be a good tv show as well
Michelle: thinking "I'll get you one day hat"
11:52 AMme: yeah, he can't take it off because his arms too shortif only he was smart enough to just go into the water
11:53 AMbut he's not
and there's the drama
I am doing a reading next Wednesday (1/28/09) at Guerrilla Lit in the East Village. Reading along with me are Greg Sanders (author of Motel Girl) and Jessie Male. The reading starts at 7:30pm. More info here and here. Thank you.
