Heyo! So remember that blog series I did for the Missouri Review wherein a curated & commented on the “perfect playlist” for picking up some of my favorite literary figures (poetry or prose, living or dead) from the airport? It was super fun to do and people really seemed to enjoy it.
Well I just found out today that the playlist I made for dearly departed sci-fi master Philip K. Dick made the 2014 top-ten list as one of the Review’s most popular posts of the year (measured by # of hits). That’s pretty damn cool to hear and my piece is definitely in some great company. Check out the full list HERE.

Cormac McCarthy is without doubt one of our greatest living novelists and is personally on of my favorite writers of all time. But what if his prose style and worldview were applied to…greeting cards???

A while back I dressed up as a cosplaying JRR Tolkien as part of an awesome multi-art Literary Roast of sacred cow authors. It was a pretty rad time. On 9/15 we do it all again and this time I’ll become…Cormac McCarthy!!!
It’s about to get real.
Check out the awesome trailer for the event:

So this was pretty fun to do. Part of the amazing Literary Roast organized by Weird Love Productions. In this multi-media show all sorts of Boston-area artists (poets, dancers, comics, burlesque performers, etc) were tasked with taking a literary sacred cow of their choice down a peg. I chose J.R.R. Tolkien and revealed his little-discussed achievement of being the man who “Invented Cosplay!!!”. Good times. I spent a lot of time crafting that wizard staff…it was worth it. Gandalf Lives!
P.S. Here’s an unrelated playlist that I made for Tolkien as part of my series for the blog section of The Missouri Review.

Novelist, intellectual, feminist icon, Bjork fan? I certainly hope so because this playlist I curated for picking up the To The Lighthouse author from the airport includes cuts from not only Ms. Guðmundsdóttir (Iceland’s finest export), but also Prince, Massive Attack, Radiohead & Missy Elliott. Part of my ongoing blog series for The Missouri Review, hope you enjoy!
