Up This Week

Just catching up on the last week's events and publications.

"Discoballs are the new teen danger drug of choice.  Teens across America are snorting this mixture of powdered caffeine and glitter that was first popularized by hip hop musician KR4FT*Z."

I have a piece in The Rumpus, "Five Disturbing Teen Trends Every Parent Should Know About," including discoballs and lumberjacking.  (And thanks to Dev, who invented the idea of lumberjacking.)

The Music Center posted more videos from the series I wrote with J Ryan Stradal.  Here so far are episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
 
 There's a whole campaign of games, contests, and giveaways, so check it out and get involved.

The Dinner Party Hot Dish was a success! Absolutely packed, and with nice write-ups from the Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles Magazine.  Look out for the next Hot Dish (probably) sometime in December.
