Genre Chick Interview: Tony Frazier

May’s Month of Writers continues — today’s victim of my little interview-questionnaire is SF author Tony Frazier. Be sure to stop by Tony’s site after this, on which he’s releasing, chapter-by-chapter, a superhero novel. (Which means, of course, that he can’t pick a favorite in the superpower question… I love being a geek.) According to this picture (that I…

Small World, Chapter Infinity

A few weeks ago, Joe and I took two rowdy Canadians to see the Adam Ezra Group…a couple of times. By the second event, we were exchanging hugs with the band like we’d known them for years and getting on each other’s Christmas Card lists. Their tour took them from DC down to Florida and Georgia. They swung back…

Tomorrow night, we’re all going to see the band Enter the Haggis. Since it’s Friday, I’m going to share a song with you. I’ve never heard them play this one live,…

One Spectacular Birthday

When Leanna and I first came up with this crazy idea on the streets of New York City, it sounded silly. Sure, I could ask a bunch of my friends to wear tiaras on my birthday…but would they? Was this going to be the dumbest idea in the history of ideas? Was I going to regret my 1-11-11 birthday…

Best Birthday Photo Album Ever

…and it’s not even 11:11 yet! I already have tiara greetings from all over the world from humans, dogs, cats, fish…even piggies! The tiaras are wide-ranging and imaginative, and the only things I love more are the people wearing them.

Unfollow the Yellow Brick Road

Yesterday, a few people and I were having a discussion about the drama associated with “unfollowing” on Twitter. I’ve discussed this phenomenon before, here on this blog, but I wanted to bring up a few new points. Here are some reasons I’ve stopped following people on Twitter: 1.) constantly listing their location (damn you, foursquare!) 2.) constantly Blipping music…
