THIS RATHER POOR BLOG is pleased to announce that I, JOHN HODGMAN, will be appearing alongside my old friends COULTON and DARIN STRAUSS at a party tonight to celebrate the publication of Strauss's new novel:


COULTON will be singing some songs.*

I WILL be reading some pages from my new book, MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE.

I DO NOT KNOW EXACTLY what Strauss will be doing during all of this. Sitting on a giant satin pillow, I guess, or shooting at our feet with a pistol.

NO MATTER: I am happy to dance for Darin Strauss.

ATTENTION: TRUAX. I have a copy of Darin's book for you, signed by the author, and I will send it along forthwith. And by forthwith I mean: WITH FORTH!

SORRY TO THE MYSTERIOUS GL3NN and his faction. I did not understand his cryptic response to my trivia question (was it a rebus or something?), and so I reward TRUAX for being the first to answer in a clear, forthright manner, by which I mean: RIGHT FORTH!

IF YOU WANT A COPY OF DARIN'S BOOK, GL3NN, come to the party, and I will buy you one.

AND TO THE REST OF YOU, by all means, come to the party.

Monday, June 23
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

with John Hodgman ("Areas of my Expertise," and TV's "The Daily Show")
& music by Jonathan Coulton

58 W. 10th St.
Lillian Vernon Writers House

*DID YOU SEE COULTON at the Highline Ballroom on Saturday night? Wow, correct? Coulton+Paul&Storm+Shirts+Ukes=RIGHT FORTH!

I have sort of a personal philosophy to attend all open invite internet things of interest if I have nothing better to do. And, I have to say, Hodgman/Coulton combo certainly beats doing laundry. I will be there.

I imagine if I leave now - I could still drive all night and miss the entire shindig. Living in the middle of nowhere is most unfortunate.

Mr. H - do you have any thoughts on the death of George Carlin?

Thank you.

An NYU party? Get out of there with forth.

Mr. Hodgman,

I hope that with the new book comes a new book tour, perchance with Dr. Coulton again. If you come back to Book Soup in Hollywood, I will be there - again. (I wonder if Janeane Garofalo will also make a repeat appearance.)

You and I spoke a bit after the concert.

Thanks for putting up with me and not ignoring me!

I only remembered afterwards to ask when there would be more Little Gray Book lectures.
