First time I’ve been excited for a “FRIST STILL FROM DA MOVIE!1” The premise here is “What if the moon landing was faked, and what if the guys who did it were like the goofballs from Nirvana the Band?”
Below an Atlantic piece, ‘Remembering the Nazis’ Disabled Victims,’ Taboola gave me links to ‘12 SF Obsessions New York Hasn’t Discovered Yet,’ ‘30 Candid Met Gala Snaps You Haven’t Seen (But Need To!)’ and ‘How to treat COPD (Video).’ A Slate photo essay on queer life in Kampala, Uganda, where gay sex is illegal, has Outbrain links to ‘16 Hilarious Road Signs’ and ‘10 Spots Guys Really Want You to Touch.’
I wrote an article for The Daily Dot: ‘Around the Web’ links are supposed to fix the internet. Why are they ruining it?
Actually it’s in the Dot’s weekly themed magazine, which is so fancy that there isn’t a comment section.
I asked Rusty Foster for an analogy for the embarrassing cruft on the bottom of an article: Around the Web links, comments, share buttons. He suggested “the dirty taint of the article.” So.
Vulture has the first look at the effing amazing cover of my new book. Read more about the designers and why this cover is perfect here. Comes out June 2015. CANNOT WAIT.

Aw shit yeah, and it’s beautiful in a whole new way from her beautiful last book:
If Sims were self-aware: A conversation between Mortimer Goth and Bob Newbie.
"You know how many friends you gotta maintain to be a good politician?"
Written and directed by Alex Coulombe for Slacktory; starring TJ Clark as Mortimer and Michael Finn as Bob.
I co-produced this masterpiece of gaming humor. As usual, I ended up running sound too. Michael kept whispering creepy nothings into his lapel mic and thus right into my ear. It was grand.
It’s all very well planning what you will do in six months, what you will do in a year, but it’s no good at all if you don’t have a plan for tomorrow.
Toured a submarine, didn’t grab comms and speak fake Russian in a Sean Connery accent. 10/10
I got news for you bub, everything is a joke
