Been a long time gone...

It's been several months since I've posted, but that doesn't mean I've been lazy--just negligent to maintaining this blog. My life has changed a lot in the last few months. Currently, I'm laying on my new leather couch in my new Brooklyn apartment. I've been here since Monday and have done little else besides unpack boxes and rearrange furniture in the last few days. Now that the place looks more like an apartment than a storage shed, I finally have some time to relax.

The first issue of Fuzz Against Junk has been printed, published, and bound. This isn't really current news though, since I finished it back in May. I read at Astroland in Boulder for the "Drunk Poet's Society" and sold some copies. Currently, I have less than half left, so if you're interested in snagging a copy ($4, includes shipping), send me a message and we'll work out the details.

Before NYC, I moved back to New Hampshire. That's not the exciting part. What's exciting is that I drove back to New Hampshire. In twelve days I visited New Mexico, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and pretty much every state on the east coast. The last day of the trip was a non-stop 24-hour drive from Smoky Mountain National Park to my house in rural Sanbornton, New Hampshire. Here are some thing I learned:
  • West Texas looks like the Moon, if the Moon grew cacti that looked they originated from a Doctor Seuss book
  • There are no rest stops in Louisiana. We drove for nearly four hours before pulling into a gas station and enquiring about the nearest rest stop. She told us to head back towards Houston
  • You can get cocktails to-go in New Orleans
  • West Virginians have a thicker accent than most Texans

Now that my life has begun to settle, I should be posting semi-frequently again. Until next time.
