I caught myself wondering how street vendors get the iPhone cases and hats that they sell. Do they buy them at a discounted price to make a profit, or do they get them for free from a supplier and then share their revenue?

Anyway, it’s a great day in New York.

I’m really happy with these characters that I met recently, so here’s this post from last night! Check out these cool cats appearing in a short story coming real soon!

Hey! Excuse my terrible understanding of drawing people and dogs!
I’d like to plug and introduce a few new characters for a short story that I’m writing. Here they are:
Mallory McAllister (25, they/them pronouns) lives among the underground of Brooklyn. They have written pamphlets regarding New York City’s darkest secrets, some of which have circulated among conspiracy theorists. They treat everything as a mystery, and their attitude towards people is standoffish at best. However, Mallory genuinely wants to help people, unless they’re not worth helping. In their spare time, Mallory likes playing their guitar in the park, making pizza, and exploring “weird Twitter.”
Alyssa Lam (24, she/her pronouns) is Mallory’s friend, partner, and roommate. She helps Mallory on their adventures, and she usually cools them down when their temper gets hot. Alyssa works a day job at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Main Branch, where she is a research assistant. This also makes her the brains behind many of Mallory’s and her operations. When Alyssa’s not working or solving puzzles, she’s at the bar making friends, dog-sitting, or stargazing.
Charlie (2, woof/woof) is a white Polish Lowland Sheepdog. He found Mallory and Alyssa one day in Prospect Park, and hasn’t left their side since. His mustache prompts Mallory to call him “Old Man” despite his age. Charlie is quite good at sniffing out clues and intimidating suspects. He likes beef jerky and reading Metro over AM New York. His favorite football team is FC Barcelona.
Check back for more on these cool characters’ very first adventure! (And again, I’m sorry about the sketch. I took one art class.)

Someone is distributing flyers ordering East Ukraine’s Jews to “register.”We translated Russian media to bring you the most accurate info on this shocking story.

Hey, so as I said on Twitter: If you’re going to frick with a particular group of people, just don’t do it. But especially don’t frick with the Jews.
I mean, we shlepped in the desert for forty years. We know the struggle. Don’t go there with us.

After last night’s YOLO Pages reading, I figured that it was time to once again plug my chapbook “Train Compost.” Please tell everyone you know to read this truly wonderful collection of poems and stories. Also if anyone knows how I can get beachsloth to write a poetic review (as he does) about “Train Compost,” please help. Thank you very much. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

IT IS TIME… TRAIN COMPOST IS NOW ONLINE!
Yes, that’s right. My first chapbook, “TRAIN COMPOST”, is now available for you to read for free on Issuu and in PDF form. Click the links below to read with your eyes!
Issuu: http://bit.ly/1pS21bFPDF: http://bit.ly/1dSpFov
For those late to the game, TRAIN COMPOST is a collection of poems, thoughts, and stories that I wrote in subway trains between June 2013 and February 2014. It’s a realization of thoughts from underground, a place where most secrets don’t tend to rise to the surface.
I hope you enjoy reading this! If not, it’s okay. I will just have to try harder next time. THANK YOU

Tonight I went to Bushwick for the Brooklyn release party of The Yolo Pages by boosthouse. I picked myself up a copy of the book, plus a T-shirt. I also snapped a few selfie with Steve Roggenbuck (of livemylief) which I will post later. 
Real literary kings and queens were there! Amy Saul-Zerby! Stephen Michael McDowell! Liz Bowen! The one and only beachsloth was there! Jacob Bakkila — the man behind @horse_ebooks himself — was there! Sharon Mesmer! Emily Elizabeth Scott, too!
Everyone in attendance witnessed a truly beautiful and fricked up night of poetry and literature. We laughed. We sat in awe. We pet a dog. I am glad that I stayed up past my bedtime for this wonderful occasion.
I hope to see Boost House again in Brooklyn soon. But now, I know that they must prepare their next move. A takeover of literature takes time, of course…
