The storyline of Weathercraft is easy to follow, but the wealth of submerged, occluded, obscure and personal information that runs through it can only be effectively comprehended when pointed out and explained by the progenitor. That's why I 'm pleased as punch to be doing exactly that at the Fantagraphics Books store in Georgetown this Saturday (May 22). The entire story will be projected on a screen and the sub-details revealed. Plus the books will be for sale and I will be signing 'em. And afterwards... who knows?

Aw, is there any hope for a video document of this for those who live far away? This sounds really interesting.

According to an email, Madame Woodring just popped my copy in the mail. Woot!

This sounds cool! Shame I'm unable to get there, crossing fingers for video.

I don't recall seeing this image in the book. Was it used for something else?

There was no video made as far as I know. Perhaps a video was made of my talk in Olso last week. That went about a million times better.

Oh, that's disappointing. I'm still trying to figure out the central pun/word-play to Frank in the River. I never recognize these things unless they're explicitly pointed out to me.

Thanks the follow up!

Not Frank in the River, but Frank's Faux Pa. The one with the frayed rug. Afraid rug? I don't know.

Sometimes I think these Spam trails that are left behind would be idea for hip-neighborhood cafe poetry readings. Sesli sohbet, sesli chat. Spoken, kind of reminds of prayer-like rinds.
