A Video Poem For My Brother Jeff

My brother Jeff had a rough month, but he's getting better. I wish I could give him a hug, but here I am, hundreds of miles away.

Last night at Black and White, the best storytelling reading in New York City, the whole bar chimed in to send Jeff a very special get-well video.

O Geeze

Next week I'll be reading (and singing) a short selection straight from my Beatnik-imitating, adverb-abusing, woozy high school diaries. If you are in New York City and want to meet some great web writers, come check it out:

"Every month The WYSIWYG TALENT SHOW brings you readings and performances from some of the blogosphere's best and funniest writers, musicians, comedians and performance artists. And every month Cringe brings readings of teenage diaries, journals, notes, letters, poems, abandoned rock operas, and other general representations of the crushing misery of their humiliating adolescence. Together, they fight crime! Okay, not really,
but it WILL be funny.

"The WYSIWYG Talent Show's "CringeyWYG" performs Wednesday, October 18 at
Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery between Bleecker and Houston). Doors open at 7:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m. Tickets are $7 at the door.

"With performances by:
* Sarah Brown (http://queserasera.org)
* Lindsay Robertson (http://lindsayism.com)
* Marc Balgavy (http://balgavy.com/blog)
* Joshua Newman (http://www.self-aggrandizement.com )

This week I'm interviewing former Peace Corps volunteer and novelist Tony D'Souza over at The Publishing Spot. We talk about everything from MFA's to his piece in the New Yorker. Dig it.
