This is a long post but it’s about something pretty interesting so I hope you’ll indulge …

Like many folks, Occupy Wall Street has been some doing good work in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, helping people on the ground.

Now OWS is launching the ROLLING JUBILEE, a program that has been in…

For real, one of the TOP TEN BEST TIMES I HAVE EVER HAD ON STAGE was hosting this karaoke show with David Rees

FYI: For the purposes of your understanding, “Sea Monkeys” = “people.”

Thanks for the video, Chris Dillon!

Sharpening Pencils in Philadelphia!

howtosharpenpencils:

I will be in Philadelphia this Thursday! There’s even a facebook page about it.

I’m joining some talented authors at a place called Tattooed Mom for a reading series! This will be the first pencil-sharpening event at which I’ll have a beard. (I grew a beard in Maine.)

Well, I think that about does it for this tumblr post. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you in Philadelphia!

TAKE NOTE, MY COUNTRYMEN! - Paul

Sharpening Pencils In Chicago Tonight!

howtosharpenpencils:

Quimby’s is one of my favorite bookstores in the whole world — they were the first non-east coast store to carry My New Fighting Technique is Unstoppable back when I was photocopying and stapling the books in my living room.

So tonight, at my Quimby’s reading, I’m going to give 100% of myself — I will leave NOTHING in reserve!

Please join me at 7PM for a celebration of pencils and pencil sharpening! Tell your friends! They will never stop thanking you for it.

I am reblogging this out of friendship and because that picture is the absolute best. - Paul
