Musical Chairs

Musical Chairs explores one family's history of mental health diagnoses and searches to define the cusp between a '90s working-class childhood and the trouble of adapting to a comfortable life in the suburbs. In order to understand her restlessness, Jennifer reflects on years of strip-dancing, alcoholism, and estrangement. Inspired by the least likely source, the family she left behind, Jennifer struggles towards reconciliation. This story is about identity, class, family ties, and the elusive nature of mental illness…

Republicans' MS Paint Skills seen on Pelosi's Amazon page

I think John McCain's interns have finally learned to use MS Paint. They've began posting a bunch of great new images to Speaker Pelosi's book page. One features her on a communist flag, one is subtitled "Does she want our American daughters to wear Muslim head garb?"

The Great American Novel

I took the time to write a whole book, and where do you start? The back cover. Are we living in Israel? That's not the way people read.It's okay. We knew you'd do that, and the debate we had on what to put back here was arduous. Reviews? You need a pretentious review? Fine."Keith Malley stands out as a new, fresh, leading author with honest talk and a smart style. Seriously: Arduous? Brilliant!"-your favorite newspaper/magazine/television celebrity.We thought about a picture for the back. A nice snowman. Who doesn't like snowmen? Maybe a black snowman. It grabs your attention. Then we heard how much more we'd have to pay the artist for a back cover…

iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It

The mastermind behind Apple sheds his low profile and steps forward to tell his story for the first time.

Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen? The result was the first true personal computer, the Apple I, a widely affordable machine that anyone could understand and figure out how to use…

Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women.

No rules. No techniques. Only "technology" ... for picking up women.

Neil Strauss (famous for writing books with Jenna Jameson and Dave Navarro) has a new book out on the subject of pickup artists and picking up on women. The guys in the book describe their act as "technology" - they have flowcharts and diagrams and stuff like that. Very amusing ...
