Woodchopping porn! Here’s a video of my girlfriend Holly splitting wood today. Not naked, but still pretty hot.

I was just surfing around, and went to look at the funny short film with Gretchen Phillips in it that I posted here last fall, “Car Accidents and Other Coming Out Stories.” And I saw that the filmmaker, Anne Crémieux, has another great movie up called “Ride Me Up, Ride Me Down,” which was selected as part of some Fringe Festival “Porn Open Call” Night. This is one excellent pornographic video! Especially if, like me, you’re fond of bicycles.

I’m a pornographer! Well, in Utah, anyway.

This is me, supine with awe and gratitude for all the brilliant ads and articles and classifieds everyone sent in this week. I’ve got the last batch of stuff up now. Actually, I haven’t even Read the rest of this entry »

Surely domestic productivity has plummeted this week, what with all the submissions I’m getting for this fake newspaper. I just put up FIFTEEN new ads, and three new articles. Read the rest of this entry »

I’m speechless with gratitude for the articles and ads coming in for this project. Thank you all so much! To recap, there’s a big volume of DTWOF coming out this fall, and the publisher is producing a promotional piece to send to bookstores about it—a fake issue of “The Daily Distress,” the newspaper in my comic strip. It’s filled with ads and articles about the characters, contributed by YOU. (See here for more details about this crazy scheme.) All participants get a copy of the book when it comes out, and if your ad or article is chosen for the finished piece, you’ll also get an original DTWOF comic strip.

Check out what people have sent in so far. Here’s the page where I’m putting up the articles . And here are the ads. I’m updating these as more stuff comes in. And hey, can we redirect comments about the project to this post? The other ones are getting a tad unwieldy.

A Canadian secondary school student (that’s high school for us amurricans) just sent in a brilliant article. “Polyamorous Secret Gay Network Found in Bed with the World Wide Web and Publishing Company.” It took her a while because she had to finish an essay on Stalin first.

daily distress masthead

So many ads and articles are flying at me for this fake issue of The Daily Distress, I’m having flashbacks to my early days as a pre-digital era newspaper production manager. I swear I can smell hot wax. You people! Thank you all so much!

Okay, things are starting to get hard to keep track of. So I’ve decided to post stuff here as it comes in. I’m creating pages, one for articles and one for the ads.

Hey, Iara’s idea about classifieds is brilliant! I hope people will feel free to send those in! Employment, announcements, for sale, personals!
