Literary Happy Hour

Hey, tomorrow night I'll be reading at Capitol Cider's Literary Happy Hour with the mighty Joshua Mohr and Anca Szilagyi. Swing by for an early double Jager and crudite. I'm going to bust out a chapter of the forthcoming very adult novel "This Unlovely Monster". You've been warned. 5-7pm.

American Junkie Release Party

Hey, tonight's the launch party for the re-release of Tom Hansen's excellent American Junkie. I'll read before Tom does an encore, and then we'll break down all of music and literature and old school Seattle in an Q&A with Jarret Middleton. Definitely the literary event of the year: Lazarus emerges from the cave, shambles into Elliott Bay Book Company to drink beer and yell rude stuff at the podium. Yeah, you want to be there. 7pm.

Bookfest for Charity! Today!

Hey, this great annual event is happening again tomorrow. An absolutely killer lineup of authors, readings, food, and music. Excellent chance to buy some Christmas presents that matter, with a big chunk of the money going to charity, including PNA and the The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas. I'll be reading at 4pm and signing the rest of the while, but mostly standing there feeling good about something for once. You should definitely swing on by.

Election 2016

Here's my final column for The Weeklings, "25 Ways Hillary Can Fix America By Wednesday". It's one that I've been thinking about for six months, but finally got around to writing. Like it or not, Hillary will be elected tomorrow. After which I am going to drink a bowl of ayahuasca and lie in a sensory deprivation tank for two weeks. In the meantime, here are 25 non-partisan, commonsense ways that President Clinton can immediately make this country great again. In a sense, Trump has already won, because he has changed discourse forever. But not my discourse. Article includes at least three bonus Chuck Norris jokes. Plus, the first person who tattoos this entire thing on their back in a barely-legible calligraphy font wins a free T-shirt. Pics required. Selah.

Arty Interview

So I was interviewed/photographed for this film/lit project recently, which might be amusing to check out. The cafe the photos were taken in was packed, and I was keenly aware of various people watching over their laptops and omelettes, trying to decide if I was someone famous, or an unbelievable tool. Of course they're not mutually exclusive, but I think the unspoken consensus was definitely on Phillips Head. Also, you try wearing better socks.
