What a summer, jesus. Again, I never went camping! But I did manage to swim in the lake a lot, there’s that. One of the greatest things about living in Seattle is having Lake Washington right on the edge of town… this morning I got up early, took my thermos to the beach, swam, and drank my coffee in the sun. Hardly gets better than that.
I Love Led Zeppelin is doing really well. Hooray! I’ve been meaning to post the reviews and dates of my upcoming shows but better late than never, and whatall…
Multimedia Spectacle at Northwest Film Forum on Sept. 14, with me, Sarah Rudinoff, Miss Indigo Blue, and Led Zeppelin tribute band No Quarter. Not to be missed! It’ll be a blast! And, I decided, a great excuse to buy new shoes. Tickets and info: www.nwfilmforum.org
Really nice: Really nice reviews of I Love Led Zeppelin in the LA Times and Salon, and in the current issue of Bitch. Vice has an intensely mixed and snarky review but is actually very flattering. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer ran a really nice feature about me and my book a couple weeks ago, and The Stranger ran a really nice review of my reading/show at Elliott Bay Books.
