Site Redesign Has Come — Welcome to Milquetoast 2.0

Hey everyone,

I’ve been noticing some problems with my theme, and I’ve had some complaints about how difficult it is to navigate, so I’m going to switch it up. I sure hope I can pull this off without too much difficulty.

So here’s the new theme. It’s not the most welcoming thing in the world, but it’s much easier to navigate and read.

If anyone has any suggestions as to which WP Theme MIGHT BE BETTER (and I’m not above buying an especially good one), please by all means suggest. Feel free to call me a fucktard for waiting this long to switch, also.

Thanks and fuck off.

Insulted by Authors Appears on the Bat Segundo Show

Bat Fear Filled

Edward Champion, the unabashed dominator of the online literary scene and fearless interviewer of authors, playwrights, film makers, and lonely bloggers, runs a blog of exquisite taste and regular updates. I can’t recommend enough that you visit him there.

In addition to his regular blogging duties, Edward Champion owns the sultry voice of the Bat Segundo Show, a “Radio Free Beer” podcast wherein he discusses craft, theory, philosophy, malt liquor, and the joy of reading, writing, creating, and bullshitting. He used his powers of good to draw me out of my fear cave and talk with the Segundo Show.

The interview is here. We talk Salman Rushdie and hero worship, Amy Sedaris and the C-word, Nicole Krauss and crushing disappointments. I did my best to keep up.

Smell the fear of my unwashed pisspants as I nervously laughed, tic’d, and at one point, lost track of the point I was trying to make with Rick Moody and swam in the silence of dead air for what felt like hours, searching my suddenly empty mind for something to say — anything to say — to finish whatever muddled idea I’d abandoned halfway through meandering anecdote. Despite my best/worst efforts, the Segundo Show pushed on.
