Last night I went to see a new band James is a big fan of, called Bodega Bay. They performed a five-part rock opera about branding, consumerism, capitalism, etc. etc. and it also involved a lot of dancin’ and a little man in bdsm gear. It was visually terrific but the songs were also super catchy (even though I was too tired to catch as many lyrics as I’d hoped). It was performed in our friend’s new performance space. He started a whole scene called “Slackgaze,” so my friend Kelly, who took this photo, has labeled it “slackrifice.” If you couldn’t tell already, I’m very easily amused, so I’m still chuckling about this.

Let’s everyone give a big warm thank you to Dennis Lehane for writing “Animal Rescue” in the first place (and including it in Boston Noir) so that these pictures of Tom Hardy + adorable pup could one day happen.

Tom Hardy is great and everything, but I kinda want to see this movie just for the puppy.  akashicbooks:

"I am absolutely *not* ashamed to say that 17 year old me had his senior photo taken in an exact replica of the cover to ‘Tender Prey.’ Black jacket, red shirt, hand through my all-one-length dyed-black hair. Not a single person in my graduating class noticed (or cared, it was a small Oregon cowtown, May of ‘90) but I looooove hauling it out and looking at young has literate-ambitions-me."

—A commenter on the AV Club.

This is the greatest thing I have seen all day.

Thank you so much! This is the sort of writing I enjoy doing the most, but I don’t always have outlets for it. Getting compliments like this motivates me to look for more of them :) 

Here is a poem I wrote, using words and phrases taken from a how-to on making pour-over coffee. It’s one of the better things I’ve written and appears in this anthology of erotic experimental writing. Never thought I’d say that I have writing featured in an anthology of erotic experimental writing, but sometimes life is unpredictable!
