After what has apparently been over a two year absence (during which time I was busy writing all of the pieces with which I am now updating the navigation bar of this site), I’m pleased to post again. Hello, Tumblr universe! I have apparently linked my Twitter account to this page, and vice-versa, so hopefully my tweets will populate this page and keep off the virtual dust.
•My piece for the Los Angeles Review of Books is currently the most viewed item over there, which makes me both happy and slightly nervous. Thanks again to LA Times National Reporter Matt Pearce for tweeting a link to his 30K+ followers, all of whom I do not know, but am increasingly coming to like.
•A new installment of my “Material Witness” column for Archinect should be up next week. In it, I take on Malcolm X, Lydia from Breaking Bad, and Richie Tenenbaum via signage. Thanks to everyone who shared links when I initially launched the column; it made all the difference, and I will be eternally grateful to you.
•I did two readings last week; one at Chiwan Choi’s groundbreaking DTLA lab 90 events in 90 days series as part of the relaunch of Radial Magazine, and another at The Hammer Museum as part of “Family Day.”
•I’m pitching some new pieces as we speak, and am hoping they connect with somebody, somewhere. Hang in for more announcements.
