Item! Which local author has a certain existentially confounding book out?
Item! Seems a certain radio program decided to pick the brain of yours truly with regards to an obvious think piece I wrote on transit reform. Seems also the Wilson stop is a nightmare, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Did 2009 really end? Yes, it did. But it left some great music in its wake.
Speaking of great music, check out the Three Cities album by Keeley Valentino. If more country singers worked like her, well, the world of country music would be a much better place.
Speaking of fictitious worlds: Star Wars: In Concert featured absolutely zero of the songs my cohorts and I suggested.
Speaking of suggestions, The 35th Street Review is now a thousand times more mobile-friendly; Normal Words is not, yet, but instead of fancy whiz-bang tricks there’ll be a new issue will out real soon. Scout’s honor.
And speaking of things coming out real soon, a pair of stories of mine will be in upcoming issues of a fairly significant local literary digest. But I’ll put links up when they’re available.
Until then, thank you as always for reading.
