This month’s theme is “Genius: Be an Inventor.” Unfortunately for me, no genius source of inspiration came readily, until I stopped wracking my brain for ways to make something original and new. I’m going to try to borrow from one of the oldest tropes associated with “The Genius” – as someone who games the system, …

Girl With a Face Tattoo – A Month of Gaslighting

monkey king face

I used to help out with a comics studio called Sunbros Studios, and this year for the comics convention C2E2 I returned to the booth with Beijing opera-style Monkey King face paint, to emulate the main character of their book Monkey Fist (an adaptation of the Journey to the West tale). Afterwards, I met up …

Moving On

20140720_150643

Yes, yes, I know we were allowed to destroy sentimental objects in ways OTHER than setting them on fire. But from the moment I saw the task, I knew that for me, fire was the only way. Luckily a number of other people at the show felt the same way, so we agreed to meet …

Going to Readings; Eric May features July 22nd at City Lit Books

Photo by Mckenzie Yamauchi

I don’t know if he would remember this, but I first met Eric May, after a Story Week event. We rode down an elevator together and I listened intently as he spoke about a student’s recent work. Later he featured on an early podcast for us.

We run into each other fairly often, at readings and various events. This city is full of my favorite people, and he fits right into the great stuff going on in Chicago.

“How is your new show going?” He asked me at the Printer’s Row Lit festival.

“Awesome, but it’s hard to explain. You should come and see what we are doing. It’s sort of next level. If you liked the community aspect of the Story Luck show, it’s like that times ten.”

He came, and told two off the cuff tales about last month’s theme, “I’ve never met you, but I think you’re great!” That theme and other’s stories sparked for him, “I’ve never met you, but I bet you know where you’re going,” and, “I’ve never met you, but you look like X famous person!”

“It doesn’t matter what I’m dressed like, or how big a scowl I’m wearing, I’ve just got a look that says to people, He’s friendly and knows where he’s going, we should ask him for directions.” (Not a direct quote.)

Now, because I love Natalia Nebel, I knew he was going to be featuring in January 2015 at Sunday Salon Chicago. But that’s way too far away. I wanted to see him do a proper reading. His book, Bedrock Faith, had just been published to rave reviews and great sales.
