Yesterday I drank with Tony — that is, I was at Pirate Cat Radio in the Mission District of San Francisco doing an interview. Up first is Andy Raskin talking about his book The Ramen King and I, and then it’s me, and then we wrap up the show with Rebekah Anderson of Debut Lit, the great folks who put together my west coast launch.
A post I wrote about Star Trek on The Nervous Breakdown:
For the last two weeks, I had intended to write up a little review of the new Star Trek film, but then I got thinking about what this franchise has meant to me. Don’t worry — I’m not some loon who knows the stardate of when Kirk took his first swig of Romulan Ale, and I certainly can’t translate Shakespeare into Klingon. However, I’m not a casual fan, either. I’ve seen enough Star Trek to know what the prime directive means or that Uhura’s name comes from the Swahili word for freedom.
