I'm going to be at this Noise Pop-affiated "night of musicians turned writers, writers turned musicians and all the artistry that happens somewhere in between." If you're reading this on Thursday Feb. 28, that'll be tonight.
With Beth Lisick, Greg Giles, Kate Schatz, and followed by a kind of film thing that goes by the name of Wholphin.
Thursday, Feb. 28, 7pm. $5. 12 Galaxies, 2565 Mission, San Francisco.
Feel the artistry.
So, tomorrow at Moe's in Berkeley, 7:30. Songs, reading, standing around talking, etc:
If you can't make it to the thing, you can still order an autographed copy of the new paperback King Dork here or here. The paperback edition includes an excerpt from the forthcoming Andromeda Klein, so that makes it special. The autographed hardcover is still available, too, if you prefer.
There's a Kindle edition, too, if you can believe it. I can't see any way to autograph that, but maybe I could send you a sticker or something. Just let me know.
Yet another quite damaging youtube ad where ridicule masquerades, if only just, as advocacy, I'd guess. Still, I can't look away and I doubt I will soon forget:

Global warming claims another victim.
And here is The Drifter:
...otherwise known around here as King Dork Paperback Day.
So go ahead and buy one and tell your friends about it and ask bookstores to stock it and call up your local radio station to request it and get a tattoo of it and cut it up and use it in your art projects and dance around in front of the mirror with it and sleep with it under your pillow and write "how true" in the margins of it and read it aloud to your dog and stuff like that.
Real? Or Fake? Or, is there much of a difference?
Ann Coulter corrupts the young at CPAC.
Liberal democracy is sweet and addictive and indeed in the most extreme case, the USA, unbridled individual liberty overwhelms many of the collective needs of the citizens. The subject is almost sacrosanct and those who indulge in criticism are labeled as Marxists, socialists, fundamentalists and worse. These labels are used because alternatives to democracy cannot be perceived!The alternative to democracy at issue in this case involves looking into "how authoritarian decisions based on consensus science can be implemented to contain greenhouse emissions." From the co-author of this book.
The King Dork paperback officially comes out on Feb. 12. and vaguely related to it is this stuff:
