Flossing for a Living
so while my la times piece has been postponed, i've got another little diddy coming out in the may 7th issue of their sunday magazine, west. my tiny contribution, should you want to check it out, is called "the good book."
in other diddy news, i've co-authored a piece in this month's issue of mental_floss magazine about the history and technology behind DISCO. on newstands now.
and while on the subject of floss, i'm honored to say i'll be one of their featured bloggers come june, when their daily blog goes live. check back here for updates and when to add this to your blogroll 'cause you're gonna LOVE this site! seriously: it's going to be the biggest thing since boingboing.
lastly: in the great tradition of "you blog my roll, i'll blog yours" -- check out the new books of some of my friends:
you know her from my essays she's published on her amazing fresh yarn site: hilary carlip's got a funny memoir out called queen of the oddballs. check out her website for reading dates, too.
on to fellow mental_floss writer and all around funny guy, paul davidson. his new book is in bookstores now: the lost blogs. with tour info on his his website. looks hilarious. the kind of thing you wish you'd come up with first.
