Shameless Promotion/This is Actually Cool

Hey gang! So this is less amusing and more just me shamelessly plugging some cool stuff. As dear Eddie is in the middle o' nowhere Oregon as we speak and hasn't seen a single episode of "Gossip Girl" (blasphemy), I'll take over some cultural duties on this here old blog.

So coming in the spring is a book my friend Icey is doing publicity for and it sounds incredibly cool. It's called BEAUTIFUL CHILDEREN by Charles Bock and I'm not 100% sure when it comes out, but you can pre-order it on Amazon.com (I did!). It's about struggling teenagers, strippers, musicians, runaways etc. living in Las Vegas in the 1980's (I'm drooling at the mouth). It also has a totally cool website (design wise...I'm a nerd, what more do you want?) with really good music, so make sure your speakers are up when you go there! www.beautifulchildren.net

What's even cooler is the author has created a musical side project. As his myspace explains: So, I had this awesome idea. I gave my novel — BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN — to some of my favorite bands and asked them to make a song from the book. It could be based on a character, on a phrase, on the sound the book made when they threw it in the trash, whatever. Well, turns out that some of them actually decided to fucking make songs. I'm going to be posting them up here real soon.

According to Icey The Killers are already in the midst of writing a song. Very cool stuff to check out: http://www.myspace.com/girlwiththeshavedhead Add that puppy as your friend! "Girl With Shaved Head" is the name of the musical project. Ultra cool in my book.

Now I'm going to go take my digital camera to the bathroom of my office and take really angular emo pictures of myself looking sexy and vulnerable, because this all reminds me I haven't updated my myspace picture in over a year.

Sha la la endorsement,
Patsy
