Introducing Café Gaga, the Podcast

I am thrilled to finally be launching this podcast, which I’ve been wanting to do for a while. The basic idea for the show is “a periodic podcast about what’s on my mind or what’s fallen into my lap.” In each episode, I’ll be talking about projects that I’m working on, things I’ve been thinking […]

My Friends Are the Gifts

I have decided that, for Christmas this year, I’m going to give only presents made by friends. I have so many friends with Etsy stores, small businesses, self-published books and music, artwork, and other things to sell, I figured why not support my pals (and self-employment) and share some of their amazing handiwork with family […]

Join The Deconstruction

I just got back from a fantastic ten day book “tour” in the Bay Area. While I was there, I had a great time hanging out with my pal Jason Naumoff.

Take the Potluck Dinner Challenge

A few weeks ago, I read an article on Facebook about a writer/editor couple in Pittsburgh, PA who’d dreamed up a low-stress way of “forcing” themselves into being more sociable again, Friday Night Meatballs. Tired of being too tired to go out most weeks and too intimidated to throw proper adult dinner parties, they came […]

WINK Review: Beautiful Darkness

My review this week was for the lovely and intense “anti-fairly tale, Beautiful Darkness, by French comics writer Fabien Vehlmann and the husband and wife artist team Marie Pommepuy and Sébastien Cosset (known together as Kerascoët): Beautiful Darkness begins at a lovely tea party with a Princess-like Aurora entertaining her would-be paramour, the dashing, princely […]

I Did a Reddit Ask Me Anything. Here’s the Resulting Discussion

Question: In the book The End of Absence, author Michael Harris points out that we are the last generation alive that remembers before the InterWebNet was born. I’m no Luddite, I may be online too much since my health forced me to quit my very physical work. I find it harder and harder not to […]

We consider the July release of Borg Like Me to be a soft launch, designed to fulfill all of Kickstarter backer rewards and to work out all of the bugs for fulfillment. Now that all of that is sorted out and fall is upon us, it’s time to launch this baby with as much powder […]

WINK Review: The Sacrificial Universe

For this week’s WINK review, I take a trip into David Chaim Smith’s The Sacrificial Universe: The Sacrificial Universe contains 45 stunning drawings of mesmerizing complexity and strangeness. Most of them are full-size, with a number as dramatic fold-out diptychs, triptychs, and even a quadriptych. The production is high-quality, art-book level. The text in Sacrificial […]
