Nothing Around Us Changes

January 12th, 2022 Weirdly enough, I finally got covid, but that’s not what’s inspiring me to write tonight. (Presuming nothing terrible happens to me over the next few days, I’ll probably write about that later.) No, I’ve been quarantined all alone in the bedroom (with occasional visits from my doctor, who is actually my dog),Continue reading “Nothing Around Us Changes”

An Evening w/ Dennis Vogen & Labyrinth Puzzle Rooms

January 7th, 2022 I was hinting at something fun yesterday, and I am so happy to announce it today: I’m doing a collaboration with an amazing local business in Lakeville, Labyrinth Puzzle Rooms! I met with them yesterday and they have the kindest and most radical idea: instead of their lobby being solely a placeContinue reading “An Evening w/ Dennis Vogen & Labyrinth Puzzle Rooms”

Trash is Treasure

December 29th, 2021 It’s kinda funny that, as the world learns how to describe things in increasing detail, as we create smaller and smaller boxes to put our interests in, humans become gatekeepers for drama. Wrestling is just a soap opera. Soap operas are just comic books without the superpowers. Comic books are just realityContinue reading “Trash is Treasure”

inspo facto

December 23rd, 2021 As every year ends, we tend to curl up in our chair, stare out the window, and reflect on who we are, where we’ve been, and what the hell we’re even doing. That is definitely what I’m doing right now. As I learn more and more about people who make an actualContinue reading “inspo facto”

#artvsartist2021

December 13th, 2021 A lot of my favorite people — my artist friends — have shared their #artvsartist year, and I am nothing if not a wannabe waiting outside the house party, watching my breath freeze in the cold, so here is mine. These posts are also often about gratitude, and I have no shortageContinue reading “#artvsartist2021”

Happy 15 to Love & Fear

December 10th, 2021 Fifteen years ago, in September, I released my second album, “Love & Fear.” I remember the beginning of 2020. (It was a very long time ago. I would understand if you couldn’t think back so far.) I knew that the 15th anniversaries of all three of my Next Step albums were goingContinue reading “Happy 15 to Love & Fear”

Long time no talk, I counted — Holiday Newsletter 2021

November 29th, 2021 Howdy, dear friends, precious family, and mortal enemies. When I added you to this email list, I promised I wouldn’t spam you; it’s been over a full year since I’ve sent you a newsletter (369 days, to be exact), so I’ll be eating a cookie (or sleeve of them) tonight to celebrateContinue reading “Long time no talk, I counted — Holiday Newsletter 2021”

Taking Back Monday

November 29th, 2021 On this Cyber Monday, one of the holiest of modern shopping days, I hope you consider the little guy. The local shop. Your neighbor or your friend or your family. It’s hard to express how big it is when we make a sale, especially since it’s such an intimate thing. Whether it’sContinue reading “Taking Back Monday”

The Double Nice Sale

November 26th, 2021 Are you one of those fans who keeps going to the online shop or seeing me at conventions, wanting to buy one of my books but not sure where to begin? Have you read all of my work digitally and want to take the next step by filling your bookshelf with everyContinue reading “The Double Nice Sale”

CHVRCHES & Donna Missal at the Armory

November 18th, 2021 Sometimes you just need to be in a room with transcendent art to remind you why you love art and why you love making it. We saw CHVRCHES last night at the Armory and they were brilliant; their opening act, Donna Missal, became an instant new favorite, her sound impossible to pinContinue reading “CHVRCHES & Donna Missal at the Armory”
