I was going to post some quotes to recent comments/reviews of my book but instead I decided to post this photo of me staring at you.
You.
Probably if you were gonna read my book you’ve read it already and if you’re not gonna read my book, well, you’ve made up your mind.
Who am I to try to change your mind?
Oh, “Just What I Needed” by The Cars is on the radio. I had a short-lived ska-punk band in high school and this is pretty much the only song we covered. The synth was replaced by a single trumpet and I sang. Up until this point, I’d never heard my voice singing on a recording. After hearing what I sounded like during a take of this song, I’d realized I must be tone deaf or something. I couldn’t believe no one had ever told me how bad I am at singing. And I’m not talking about, like, “one of those people who’s actually good but hates their own voice” kind of ones. I mean that I literally can’t pick a note out of the air and replicate it with my voice in any way. I can’t stay in a key whatsoever. Even friends attempting to tell me I’m not so bad have ultimately admitted, “Yeah, you can’t sing at all.”
I think my book’s alright. I have no real idea what “alright” is, but I know other people have liked it, which is why I was going to quote other people’s thoughts on it in the first place. I have no idea how to describe my book while selling it, but I can steal other people’s opinions about it and throw them in your face.
Anyway, my book is Sad Robot Stories and you can download the free ebook, buy the ebook (why pay when there’s free?!) or buy a physical, handmade copy.
Here. Book.

Differences

Have replaced the nervous hand through the hair with an anxious head scratching, even though my head never itches.

Pretty sure the people around me think there’s something wrong with my scalp now.

Had a dream in a dream last night. First time ever, I think.
The first one was a sex dream. 
In the middle of it I was woken up by Dan, the bartender at the Hungry Brain. “You were asleep,” he said.
"Was I doing anything weird?" I asked, even though I knew for a fact I’d been humping and gyrating as I sat in my stool, the whole bar watching.
"Yeaaaaaah," he said, then walked away.
I got up to leave, digging through my wallet for a few extra bucks to tip him. The woman next to me reached into my wallet, slipped all the 20s, 10s, 5s and 1s out, and threw them down on the bar.
"Trust me, he deserves it," she said.

'What Poets Should Do' by Dorothea Lasky

altlitgossip:

Poets should get back to saying crazy shit
All of the time
I am sick of academics or businesspeople telling poets
What we should do
A poet is a scientist
To favor poetry
Or science
In that both relate to Buddhism
However, both are things that melt
A purple haze or dawn
What sunken…

I don’t often make GIFs, but when I do, it’s of a guy getting kicked in the head.
Liked this YouTube video of a guy getting kicked by a conductor so much, I made a GIF.
He was perfectly fine.
