My time is severely compromised today, so I’ll make this short and sweet. Grab the new issue of Night Life this week for the newest Big Words I Know By Heart print column. I’m pretty sure that (in light of recent events) it was a review of ‘Fun Home’ by Allison Bechdel, but I can’t view the original email I sent out with my January block of columns.
Also, I’ve been toiling away on the next two Big Words radio shows and they will definitely be up by the end of this week. Stay tuned to the site for details. And if you’re not a Myspace person, I posted a boatload of publicity photos up on Facebook for your enjoyment. And now, the Official Monsters Of Verse Calendar (so far!) for the next three months! There are a lot of other venues and appearances in the works, so this WILL be subject to change. The dates below are set in stone though, so start marking your calendars and JR Finlayson, myself and a lot of talented writer/poets will see you out on the road! Let the games begin! Talk to you all on Wednesday when the Quixote Update hits,
