Remember when we used to have commercial flights that went faster than sound? What an amusing ancient relic of ambition. Now we put that old thing on a boat, which does not fly at all.
Listen to John Darnielle read the beginning of his new novel Wolf in White Van. The Mountain Goats frontman is coming to LPR evening Monday for a discussion/reading with John Hodgman.
I saw John Hodgman at The Bottletree Cafe in Birmingham Sunday night. His performance was hypnotic and funny, and slightly subversive. And not a cocky, “Man, this art project is gonna CHANGE things” subversive. But he did manage to produce a charge that left me lighter, more alive.
There are spoilers here, and obviously we can’t have Jason Sims with us everywhere, but: I am grateful for the kind words and getting-it-ness of this person’s experience with my show.
This is everything to me
