Remember Leather Tuscadero? Here she is covering Rihanna. My world exploded in a giant venn diagram of Gay Unicorn proportions.

Baby This Honey's For Me

Am I sad that R.E.M. broke up? I mean, I probably thought they did 15 years ago.

Still, it's a nice excuse to play this song and get a little wistful as I dress this Casual Friday.

Thanks boys, for the memories. And the best use of Kate Pierson as a sideman this side of Iggy Pop.

Publics Speaking

Yeesh. So I had to speak on a panel on Monday at an industry thing.


It was a pretty small crowd to be honest, and basically on the topic of my job, which I should be well versed in after all these years, but still. When it was my turn my heart started RACING, I blanked, and just looked at my notes and started talking. At several points I realized I was speaking faster than Joe Izuzu and slowed myself down. I felt my face reddening. I remember at one point using the word "paradigm." And then, a few minutes later, I was done.

I speak all the time to groups, I do presentations on a regular basis. What was wrong with me on Monday?

A few people said I did well. Maybe I did, I have no way of knowing. All I know for sure is, it's over.

Also all I know for sure? I fell a little short of my Public Speaking Role Model:



God Bless, Dixie Carter. That was indeed the night the lights went out in Georgia.

I Forget Sometimes That This Is The Best Movie Ever Made

Academy-Award Winner Geena Davis never gave it so good as she did in Long Kiss Goodnight.
(Though to be fair, she was pretty good the first time I ever saw her, in this)

I like this last one 'cause it reminds me of the climactic scene in Pete's Dragon.

Publishing & the Bostonion Tradition

My favorite part of used bookstores on the Cape?

Well, my favorite thing is books on Sodomy & the Pirate Tradition. But my SECOND favorite thing:


A whole section on the Kennedys. God Bless, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Also? Some copyeditor got in a LOT of trouble over this:

Always spell-check your subject's name, even on the spine of the book.
