insomniac ravings from an exhausted mind...but 1/3 of its for a worthy cause!
- 3 little things now that Inky's papier mache ham costume is drying in
the basement of Rocketship (Daddy, you be Boo Radley!) and the Headless
Horseman's on deck to wear the coat his great-great-grandfather used to
wear to the bank.
WHEELS FOR HENRY
From now through Halloween, I'm donating 30 percent of my sales to
Wheels for Henry, to help raise enough lettuce for Henry, his zine
warrior mama Chloe, proprietress of Portland Oregon's small but mighty
Reading Frenzy, and Henry's wheelchair to get a converted van that'll
take 'em where they need to go! Go! GO!
I'm donating 30 percent of my book sales too. Those aren't on etsy, but
you can read more about 'em on my website.
If anything catches your fancy, you can shoot $15 per title to
ayun@... on Paypal, I'll make sure Henry gets his dough
and you get your autographed book.
Complimentary Heinie Tattoo for all who pitch in to get that van! Maybe
I'll even turn one into a sticker for Henry's bumper. (If you're can
read this you're uncomfortably close to my heiner...put it in park,
If you're so over my work, you could scream, check out the Wheels for
Henry blog anyway, as there are many, many vendors, all far craftier
than I, tithing a portion of their proceeds to the cause. Get your
kwanzaa shopping out of the way before the fat man throws the dreidel
down your chimney! What? I need to go to bed.
(and don't be shy about passing that link on, y'hear? Let's get this
little man a van before the frost is on the pumpkin!)
CASSETTE FROM MY EX
You know you've got one somewhere. Drag it out, rub it on your iPod and
lose yourself in the Cassette From My Ex anthology, edited by Found
Magazine's Jason Bitner. I've got a piece in there somewhere. It just
came out today, which is why there's a party at Housing Works on Crosby
St tomorrow night. Unfortunately I can't go because I was long ago hog
tied to volunteer for parent teacher conferences at the girl's
school... you go for me. And pick up a copy of the book b/c it's The
Awesome. It even has photos of all the cassettes.
3. NOT MY SMALL DIARY
Speaking of exes, I've got a piece in the just published Not My Small
Diary #15, the brush with celebrity ish! Inky's got a piece in there
too. Her celebrity is John Wilkes Booth. The girl's a pop culture
fiend, I swear. As always there are tons of comics from a host of
worthy contributors, including the mighty mighty Carrie McNinch, whose
You Don't Get There From Here Inky reviewed in East Village Inky #41.
You can see the covers here:
you can order a copy by paypalling $7 to editor Delaine Derry Green at
There! That should keep us all in vans, music, reading material and
mail from here til Thanksgiving.
Which reminds me...
