Thanks to everyone who came out to Mortified Chicago to “share the shame” with me as I presented a collection of high school poetry and song lyrics affectionately titled Angry Young Man. As I navigated through the music-inspired personas I put forth, I shared such titles as “Downhill,” “Get Off My Foot,” and “My Bleeding Soul.” I had a blast and can’t wait to to do it all over again.

My air guitar and I “sing” about a love that’s gone “Downhill” from 8th grade.

Hey Everyone, I’ll be “sharing the shame” with a reading of some high school poetry and song lyrics with MORTIFIED-Chicago this Saturday September 21 at Schubas. It’ll be really very. Get tix ahead of time cos this totally sells out.
First off, a HUGE thank you to This Much Is True for asking me to be a part of last night’s show. Awesome time and a cool company of writers to be in. You all should go check them out even if I’m not in the line up. 🙂
Up NEXT, I’ll be sharing some, um, oh-so-innocent high school journal entries as part of MORTIFIED. Friday night, March 18, 2011 @ 7:30. At the Beat Kitchen, 2100 W. Belmont, Chicago. 21+. Order advanced tix by clicking HERE. RSVP at the Facebook page HERE. Doors open at 7.
I know some of the others in the line up and am looking forward to meeting the rest. Should be a blast! Putting together my stuff has been fun and cringe worthy for sure. See you there!
