A lot of catching up to do. In no order:
1) I've been waking up the last few mornings with Bob Dylan's "Changing of the Guards" stuck in my head. Yesterday, I thought "I wonder if that's a signal of something? Let's see: that bit where he sings 'sixteen years' at the very beginning of the song is supposed to be a reference to its having been sixteen years since his first record came out. What happened to me sixteen years ag... ah, yes--almost to the day: I graduated from college."
2) Yes, comments here are broken right now. Working on it.
3) Best titles of books spotted at Book Expo: An Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes in New England; Eeeee Eee Eeee; I Am America (And So Can You!). The highlight of the show, though, would have to be getting to meet a little stuffed bull. And the book I'm most psyched to read is Alex Ross's The Rest Is Noise--FSG had copies of the first chapter, and I was excitedly showing it around. Of course, most of the people I was showing it to were comics people, so I had to explain that it wasn't that Alex Ross.
6) Reading Comics World Domination Tour 2007 planning is underway. Look for me this summer/early fall in Portland, Minneapolis, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Lansing, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and possibly more. Details to follow one of these days.Posted by Douglas at June 7, 2007 1:01 PM | TrackBack
