the roundness of the square
I’m in the middle of one of the travel-intensive periods of the year—just got back from Montreal a few days ago (I wrote about Pop Montreal for Pitchfork), and I’m about to head off to Reykjavik for Iceland Airwaves—so when I am at home, I tend to cocoon, pretty much. Every so often, I can be spotted darting over to the grocery store for some Brussels sprouts, or heading to the comic book store for my weekly fix. But mostly I stay at home with my family and my deadlines. Oh, who’m I kidding? I stay at home obsessively reloading FiveThirtyEight.com.
Still, I’ll be appearing here in Portland on Saturday, November 8 at the Wordstock festival: at 1:00, I’m moderating a panel on “Comics and Politics” with Alison Bechdel, Spain Rodriguez and Patrick Rosenkranz, and at 4:30, I’m teaching a workshop called “Everyone’s a Critic.”
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my contributions to The Pitchfork 500, too!
