Of Course I Wrote a Dan Book

When the Safer at Home orders came down, some people asked me, “Are you going to write another book during all of this free time?” And I was really annoyed, because I didn’t have any more free time! I have a child, and it was spring, and I had to make lunch a lot. But… Read more »

  • Loving the Pantsuit

    My daughter has a thing for suits. She’s nine, and she hates to wear dresses. A few weeks ago, she was asking questions, “Can girls wear suits? Because I really like suits. And I want one.” “Yeah,” I said. “Sure. But they look a little bit different from a men’s suit.” “But it’s a suit?”… Read more »

  • How to Draw a Guy with a Bird in his Beard

    1. Draw a guy. 2. Add a beard. 3. Draw a bird in the beard. Another way is to have some really weird dudes visit you as you sketch them and their strange beard ecosystems. I speak from experience when I say, “Live models are a huge mistake! Bird poop everywhere! I’m missing my left… Read more »

    How to Publicize Your Self Published Book

      This is actually the second time I’ve been on the Segilola Salami podcast. The first time was about a month ago, when I was on with Johnson Emmanuel to discuss publicizing books with a growth hacker vs. publicizing books with a publicist. Johnson Emmanuel is a self-professed growth hacker, so of course he felt… Read more »

  • A Halloween Wish: How to Put a Hex on Donald Trump

    The Ol’ Buzzard pointed out the other day that Vermont Witches are putting hexes on Donald Trump! Well, you have to hand it to those Vermonteers (Vermontians? Vermontonians?).

    How to Make a Twitter Bot

    A few weeks ago, I created a Twitter Bot to discover the question. Which question, you might ask? The question for the meaning of life, of course. In the end of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series, they discover the meaning of life: 42. That’s it. That’s the meaning of life. But, what is the… Read more »

  • Counting Sheep

    Every day, I go out and count the sheep, making sure no one got eaten in the night. I look them over and see how they’re doing. An easy way to tell they are all right is to drive a little farm vehicle beside the pasture, and if they all run after it- well, they’re… Read more »
