What’s on my Kindle, coffee table, nightstand, and Google Chrome tabs (mid April 2012)

Et Tu, Babe by Mark Leyner – this book has me laughing out loud at ANY moment (I don’t give a shit where I am at the time either…so there!)

 

Narcopolis by Jeet Thayil – I heard the author being interviewed on NPR and this IMMEDIATELY became a MUST READ (I can become addicted to many things…VERY easily). Listen to the interview here…you will want to read it too (promise!)

 

Lid Magazine – introduced to this glossy mag when visiting the Paul Smith shop in NYC. Totally cool. You know you want it.

 

I bought a ‘Fake Rolex’ from Grey Area – it’s just a rubber facsimile, but it’ll look good on my wrist.

 

Daytrotter KICKS ASS. A subscription is only $2/month…awesome live music + you get to support them. Make yourself feel good – join up (no affiliation here, just a HUGE fan).

 

How To Make a Hollywood Hit. Now codified…so go DO IT. NOW.

 

And finally, in concert news – I’m going to Lollapalooza. Please join me. Stop by and say HIGH!!!
