Check out this interview with Clare Hurley on the World Socialist WebSite. I actually loved meeting Clare. She is a painter and I was only able to check out photos of her work on a little digital camera but I really liked them. I can't wait to see them in person.
Next, check out this interview with the engaging and fabulous Christina Vassallo. She's on her way to superstar writer, so don't sleep on her.
Last, I am mentioned in this essay by Nick Hornby, which I thought was only in National Geographic but, NO, it's actually in 'The Thinking Fan's Guide to the World Cup.'
'The Thinking Fan's Guide to the World Cup' features original pieces by thirty-two leading writers and journalists about the thirty-two nations that have qualified for the world's greatest sporting event. In addition to all the essential information any fan needs -- the complete 2006 match schedule, results from past tournaments, facts and figures about the nations, players, teams, and referees -- here are essays that shine a whole new light on soccer and the world."
So I'm "in all good bookshops."
The thing that's so next level nuts about this is I WAS PLANNING ON BUYING THAT BOOK FOR LYNN BLOOM!
Seriously, what if she was just reading it and I was mentioned in this essay? Ok, that's complete craziness.
Just so everyone knows, I love Nick Hornby. He is friends with our friends Dave and Serge and they often perform together, which is not to be missed.
