9/25 Update

leave a comment »

I’m here to report that the blog is not dead. The football season has begun. I’ve almost finished Vol. 2 of Marcel Proust and after that I only have 2200 pages to go. Mad Men has 4 weeks remaining in one of the best seasons of television I’ve ever seen. I have a post in the works about J.D. Salinger’s seldom-read bizarre story “Hapworth 16, 1924.” I have another post giving us the Collier’s Yearbook scoop on the second half of 1965 (it’s scheduled to publish in five days). But in the midst of this I actually got a legitimate job, albeit just an internship (for now). This job required me to move across three time zones, which was fun.

Now I’m in Seattle. And I work for Grist.org. There are also some posts on that site in the pipeline for me. I haven’t decided whether I want to go back and write about the Mad Men eps I missed, or just skip them and try to say something about the remaining episodes of the season in a timely manner.
