‘Acid Food’ by Mogwai is my new jam.
This bit from John Oliver on Net Neutrality is excellent, hilarious, and a great primer to pass on to your less Internet-savvy friends (you know, the ones on Facebook) to help them understand what this all means and why they should be outraged. Watch the whole thing and then head over to this FCC website and tell them how you feel.
‘Transparent World’ by Thee Oh Sees is my new jam.
‘The Geometry Of Business’ by Oxbow is my new jam.
As you may remember (if your memory goes back that far), last December I announced that I was going to do a Kickstarter campaign for It’s Just A Game, Volume 3. Well, that is no longer the case! At least for now. Here’s what is going on, though. It is very exciting:
It’s Just A Game, Volume 3 is going to be released digitally on Saturday, May 10, to coincide with my appearance at the Bit Bazaar in Toronto. I’ll be promoting it (and maybe even selling it) there despite it not existing (yet) in print.
Then, if there’s a demand for it (and there may not be! there also may be! WHO CAN SAY), I’ll kickstart a print run of Vol. 3 along with a reprint of Vols. 1 & 2. Or maybe this latest volume will make enough to finance a reprint without need for a Kickstarter. A girl can dream.
Between now and Vol. 3’s launch, I’m going to be making a push to remind people that It’s Just A Game Volumes 1 & 2 are still available digitally ($8 for a 2-pack)!! If you haven’t read them yet, you really really should. Lots (26!!) of amazing people contributed, and their work is kind of really great.
So yeah, buy 1 & 2 if you haven’t already, and keep an eye on this space for 3’s impending release.
Oh, and YES the photo above is a preview of my cover art for Volume 3. :)
See you soon,
I’m in It’s Just a Game Volume 3! I’m not in 1 and 2, but those are still great if you want to read them while you’re waiting for #3 to be available.
‘The Other Side Of Mt. Heart Attack’ by Liars
The Other Side Of Mt. Heart Attack by Liars. Play this song at my funeral and cry so hard into my coffin that your river of tears lifts my corpse out and carries it down to the river Styx.

Poor Little Rich Boy by Regina Spektor. I sometimes worry this is my anthem…
