Lovelab Ad of the Week, 3/8

New! Lovelab Ad of the Week, based on one of the regular date-seeking personal ads in the Stranger, will alternate with Lustlab Ad of the Week. One can assume that the lot of them really mostly just want to get laid, but you know, love, lust, whatever. Here’s the first one, since I will be out of town and will undoubtedly forget to post it on Wednesday.


“Lustlab Ad of the Week” is a comic adaptation of one of the week’s kinky personal ads in Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger, and I post them here every Wednesday. See it on their site here. The “Lustlab Ad of the Week” book collection is scheduled to be released with Fantagraphics in early 2008.

Wild Night at the Wildrose

The I Love Led Zeppelin show last night at the Wildrose was a fucking blast! A boozed-up audience really helps with the laughing and whistling, I think. I’ll have to encourage people to bring discreet flasks to my bookstore shows. Many thanks to Broch of Seattle Spit (monthly queer open mic night) for inviting me and to the Wildrose for hosting.

My good friend Ariel‘s good friend Ben took a bunch of photos (you can check out all of them here). The show begins (to the tune of Black Dog):



“Seattle’s Erotic Landmarks”: everyone’s favorite, the Magic Pussy:



“My Date With Camille Paglia” (that’s a “telephone” there, my right hand):

I am a professor, #2: signing a book for Matthew, a student of mine at Cornish:
