"THERE WAS NO KOOKY UNCLE WHO INSPIRED ME"

DURING APRIL AND MAY (of this year), when I was 100 feet underwater with hard but pleasant work on the book and other surreal diversions (GERVAIS), I turned down a lot of opportunities I wished I hadn't, such as:

BATHING
EATING MEALS WITH FRIENDS
REMEMBERING BIRTHDAYS
BEING INTERVIEWED FOR THIS WEBSITE.

BUT NOW, things are calmer, and on slower mornings like this one, I have a chance to peruse what it was that I had missed.

AND I CAN TELL YOU NOW: bathing is terrific.

AND SO IS THIS LINK.

FOLLOW it for lots of interviews with very smart, thoughtful heads, including HUEBEL, RICH, IWEALA, KOTTKE, CHANG, and THE GREAT LIEB, below, who is not only brilliant, but wears green pants like he has a license to.* (also **)




That is all.

* You can't see so here, but trust me. In real life, he has legs. In fact, a whole body.

**AND PS: where is SILVERMAN in this group?

my first thought (since the first interview i saw was ira byrock talking about HOW TO DIE) was WHY DOES HODGMAN WANT ME TO KNOW HOW TO DIE????

i checked under my desk for bombs and/or mole-men. so far i think i'm okay. please don't kill me. i have 2 cats.
