Was a good time last night. My first time at the Mercury Cafe, too (Boulder people don’t get to Denver too often—it’s weird, I know, but neither do Denver people trek out here to Boulder much either). Meaning, I didn’t know what door to use, meaning: of course I ended up circulating at a wedding for a few minutes before finally asking the photographer where the horror reading part of all this was going to be.
One redirect later, I found my people:
Or, rather, i…
Which you’d think would start here, at 7pm, as the sign says:
But, really, I was at Tattered Cover Colfax at 2pm, for a Denver Moon event, which went great, as you can tell:
On the way out, I caught My Hero in good company:
I so, so dig My Favorite Thing is Monsters. Very ready for vol.2. Really dug My Friend Dahmer, too.
Anyway, instead of finding coffee shop to write away some hours in (the scent of coffee leaves me dramatically gagging), I went to Discount Tire and worked on a ch…
I used to be better about doing this—collecting snapshots from the last couple weeks or so, stacking them in a post—but I somehow let that drift away. So, maybe this’ll be me starting that up again? Who knows. Anyway, DCC would be in here, but I had to ghost out of all my panels last-minute, as I was already scheduled to be at Juniper Writing Institute (double-booking: my fault). But, before that, I was at UCR-PD‘s MFA graduation ceremony, both watching a couple …
Well, 9:00pm some night in February: so, so excited this is back on, and that the tickets I got for the original/cancelled show still work for this one. One of my main dreams has always been to see Seger live. Here’s hoping this Denver concert really happens:
Here he is right before he would have been here in 2017:
Another from that same concert:
and from Denver, back in 74:
and of course, his Denver song:
And made it to me here in Boulder. Amazing-cool, thank you everyone who read it, who voted on it, who dug it.
Now if I can just keep from dropping it. I almost just nailed it with a dog-toy, during a furious game of fetch, so it may have to be finding a higher, more out-of-the-way home . . .
Was up in Minnesota a few weeks ago, got to talk to some very cool people on the radio:
Hey, cool—and thanks to David Tremblay for the headsup. Guess I’m on some page NALS stuff. I’m thinking that snapshot is maybe from a keynote I gave at Isleta Casino couple years back?
And here’s that keynote, from when I read it later at IAIA: Stephen Graham Jones from IAIA – Low Rez MFA (video won’t embed, turns out—privacy settings). Guess a snapshot of me also got used for the StokerCon website this year:
In one I’m wearing a …
Hey now, somebody may have just read the moneyshot chapter of a slasher novel I just wrote:
