I may not be in LA, but I can still write something about the closure of the 405 this weekend. Check out my piece on the LAWeekly arts blog, "Armageddon 2: Carmageddon / The Unproduced Screenplay about the closure of the 405." Link here.
I've got a humor piece up on McSweeney's today-- wanted to share the link, despite my blogging delinquency. It's called "Technology-Enabled Congressional Sex Scandals of the Future." Pretty much exactly what that title makes it sound like it's about. Inspired, like the previous post, by Anthony Weiner-- whose Congressional district I should have already mentioned that I'm proud to have grown up in.... Okay, proud may be the wrong word.
Very short excerpt/teaser from the piece: "...affair with a short-circuiting robot prostitute..." I am not sure whether that is the appropriate excerpt to tease the piece. If you read the piece, and have a better suggestion for what sentence will make people want to click/share/read, I'm all ears...
Here's another very short excerpt: "When revealed on HuffGoogleFaceBeast..." Perhaps that one is more enticing.
