The Bullhorn of SILVER BROWN

Now Playing

Chapters Three and Four of SILVER BROWN (which are actually the fourth and fifth chapters respectively, the first chapter being designated Chapter Zero – if you’ve ever studied computer science you’ll get it) are presently being showcased on my Twitter feed. From now until August 10, give or take. One page at a time.

I change the pinned tweet on my feed frequently, and have been doing so for years. When I unleash one of these chapters upon an unsuspecting Twitterverse, I do that by pinning a new tweet to my feed every day at the crack of dawn – a task I don’t even have to roll my ass out of bed to accomplish, thanks to those newfangled smartphone thingies (what a time to be alive!). A never-seen-before brand spankin’ new page is unveiled to the world in said pinned tweet, always in correct sequential order in relation to the previous day’s page, so the fine folks at home can read along. And indeed, they do. Whatever you throw out into the Twitterverse will inevitably get read by somebody, even if it sucks.

Forgive me if I sound like I’m tooting my own horn, but there’s been a sharp uptick in my Twitter followership in the last week. We’re not exactly talking the kind of numbers following the likes of [insert name of current pontiff or flavour-of-the-month pop star or K-pop band here], but it’s indubitably a larger-than-usual increase over the number of followers I had from the previous week. I’ll take that as an indication that at least some people out there are amused as fuck.

The Interview is Coming Soon (Apparently)

This week I got back in touch with that guy I recorded that podcast with a while back, to ask him about the status of the interview. When June 3 came and went uneventfully, my first thought was that nothing came of those thirty minutes I chatted with him. I imagined some omnipotent media gatekeeper in a Brooks Brothers suit pounding his Princeton class ring-endowed fist on the table in some random unremarkable Manhattan boardroom, declaring to his flock of pencil-necked underlings that this interview was far too outrageous for the air. To my pleasant surprise, if there were any corporate overlords involved, they have been appeased. Quoth the dude…

I’ve Been Interviewed!


Indeed it was. First-ever Silver Brown-related interview to boot. Fully enjoyed that experience; the guy interviewing me was probably more nervous than I was. Although to be fair, the backstory of how the book came into existence would probably make any rational person shit themselves. Not me, though. I actually lived through that nightmare, so it doesn’t have quite the same effect. He told me the podcast is coming out on June 3, so I guess I’ll have more details about that to share with you then.
