I was shocked by the magic Jason at XXC was able to work with my scatterbrained sentences and shot-from-the-saddle photos, but the man is a wizard with a layout program. It's almost like seeing your reflection in one of those perfectly flattering dressing room mirrors while trying on a pair of pants you could never afford and thinking to yourself, "damn, I look good!" Despite my unglamorous reality, I'm quite pleased with the way the piece turned out and want to thank Jason, India, Ira, Donnie and everyone else who encouraged me to see this project through. I hope this won't be the last time my name appears in the pages of XXC.
Digital copies are available for download here. For one week only, Jason is offering a "name your price" deal so you can enjoy all the radness for as little as $1! Of course, this also gives you the opportunity to pay more than the $2.25 cover price if you'd like, so open up those pockets like it's the NPR fundraising drive!
The print edition is available for purchase here. It may not come at the bargain price of the digital version, but the perfect-bound pages will be around long after the machines achieve consciousness and your computer murders your pet bird with a well-aimed USB projectile. Or, if you think my writing sucks you can use them to line the birdcage. Either way, you're better off investing in paper and ink than giving your money to a SuperPAC. Thanks for reading!
