But Seriously: Buy a book, and help Peter David!

So, one of my favorite writers, Peter David, recently suffered a stroke. I had the chance to chat with him at the 2012 New York Comicon, and he's one of the nicest people. Even before that, I saw him give a mini-presentation at a con in the Buffalo area waaaaay back in the day (mid 90s). He'd created the show Space Cases for Nickelodeon, and he did a slide show--with actual slides. Yes, kids, they were once a thing. Anyway, there were some issues with the projector, and my dad helped him fix it. Cool story, I know.

I guess what I'm trying to get at (way to bury the lead with your ramblings, Kurt) is that you can totally help him out by buying on of his books. He's quite the prolific author as well, so there's plenty to choose from. Check out his bio from Crazy 8 Press.

I'd suggest his "Pulling Up Stakes" two-parter. It's a bit of a send up of the recent surge in vampiric media with an irreverent sense of humor. The first part is also $1 on amazon. How can you say no to that?

He also writes X-Factor, a sort of super hero noir/comedy/drama mash-up. It's also one of the best comic book series of all time. That's right, I said it. Come at me. I will cut you.

Keep up to date by following Peter on twitter and his blog. And please buy one (or all) of his books!

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso
