i have been busy; i am doing two readings this week



-i am reading this wednesday night with dave ruder, lydia bell and jack reilly at northeast kingdom in bushwick, brooklyn, 9:30pm, small donations accepted

-UPDATED: i am reading this thursday night with rachel sherman, sam apple and aaron lake smith at vol. 1 storytelling at bar matchless in greenpoint, brooklyn, this reading is at 7pm NOT 8pm as i accidentally listed earlier, free

-UPDATED: my new/old roommate ben blum and i shot a "short promotional video" for zachary german's new novel eat when you get sad

-i've been writing a lot of things for my neighborhood weekly

-i've been "low-level" sick for the last few days

-i had two short stories neither accepted nor rejected by an online literary magazine

-i read a bunch of graphic novels, including maus ii by art spiegelman, persepolis by marjane satrapi, chicken with plums also by marjane satrapi; a collection of poems by denis johnson (man amongst the seals); and about seven or eight tobias wolff stories, which i found "satisfying"

go graphic novels!

if you get a chance, check out "ghost world" and "black hole"

"the push man and other stories" is pretty great also
