I write about nerdy things, and celebrate those things as a college writing teacher. I live in the mountains and co-founded the production house ADK Mogul.

The Unseen Drawings of Kurt Vonnegut

Book 42: Timequake by Kurt Vonnegut. Hilarious and funny for a while, but I quickly grew bored with it. The same gag, the same phrases, the same jokes and a grandfatherly tone give off a charming senility. That’s where the charm lies, but didn’t hold my attention to keep me with it to the end.

No matter what a young person thinks he or she is really hot stuff at doing, he or she is sooner or later going to run into somebody in the same field who will cut him or her a new asshole, so to speak.

Vonnegut
This is a letter Kurt Vonnegut wrote with tips on teaching at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. My friend Meggan sent this to me.
My favorite bit is where he says Paul Engle talks “like a man with a paper asshole.” I have no idea what that would sound like so I’m going to go around saying it all week.

“Of course it is exhausting, having to reason all the time in a universe which wasn’t meant to be reasonable.” — Kurt Vonnegut

I love Dustin and I love Mr. Vonnegut, and I love Ned for reblogging this.

Kurt Vonnegut’s “How to Get A Job Like Mine”. In which he riffs on Geraldo Rivera, semicolons, and 9/11. A total gem, especially this:

"Don’t use semicolons. They stand for absolutely nothing. They are transvestite hermaphrodites. They are just a way of showing off. To show that you have been to college."
