July 23, 2014 | 0 Comments

It's that time of year again! What time of year? you may be asking. The time when we take off our shoes and lay around on the grass? The time when we buy food-truck morsels and have a picnic? The time when we take a free ferry to a free poetry festival and enjoy the summer on Governor's Island? [...continue...]

Self-Promotion! (It’s Good Writing! Really!)

June 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

Sometimes I fall into the all-too-common trap of not wanting to sound like a broken record of self-promotion. I mean, not that I want to be that guy who’s constantly promoting himself. But this is my website. I’m allowed to promote, right? And to be honest, right now I don’t have [...continue...]

Shameless Self-Endorsement (and India Summer, too!)

September 14, 2011 | 0 Comments

Well, hey, if I’m on a “not really thinking but posting anyway” kick… Let’s do more self-promotion and links! Weehoo! 1) I did a really fun interview with the hyper-hot, super-spiritual, highly horny, and impressively articulate India Summer for WHACK! Magazine that [...continue...]
