The State of Things

played on the radio yesterday, the local NPR affiliate WUNC (91.5 fm) has a show called The State of Things and Portastatic had a segment wherein we got interviewed and played 2.5 songs, in a stripped down fashion -- you can check it out here.

also this week, the Triangle area had a visit from A Professional Writer, John Hodgman. Hodgman read from his book, gently embarassed a few teens and generally had a bookstore basement full of fans rolling in the aisles. His book, Areas of My Expertise, is a fantastic compendium. check it out and also Hodgman's blog on his site!

appearing with Hodgman in that cramped Durham basement was NC native David Rees, who's comic strips entitled Get Your War On are great even if he doesn't draw them himself. I don't think it's because he's lazy.
