Short Story Reading and Convention Appearance
I've been selected to read a short piece of mine, "Blue Diamond Floor Almonds with Drug Dinner", in The L Magazine's Literary Upstart Competition. This will happen at 7:30 on May 25th at the Baggot Inn in the West Village. I'd love to have you guys come out and listen and have a drink with me, like the proud (alcoholic) parents I always wanted, but was afraid to ask for (anything).*
Also, David and I will have a booth at Mocca Arts Festival June 10-11 in Soho, which is a great convention you can't really miss. So come see us there, too!
*kidding! love you mom!
Shoes Democracy at Work
Ok, so a friend of mine is one of ten finalists in a worldwide adidas shoe design contest. He's currently in second place, and he if wins, he probably gets to design shoes for the rest of his life! And you really can't beat that. So you should go vote for his shoes!
Go here, click "finalist gallery". His name is Ari, vote for his shoes, because they are the best.
The only problem is that the site is really badly designed. I had to update my flash player before I saw anything, then I had to turn pop up blockers off. And then I couldn't click on the "submit" link because another link was in the way so I had to press shift tab and enter to submit my vote. Just make sure it says, "your vote has been submitted" or something like that, or else your vote didn't count.
But it'll be worth it, when as I am slaving in some drab office environs I can imagine Ari putting magic marker to old school kicks somewhere bright and sunny.
