    some things I've been up to

    Sorry there hasn't been much activity over here on the blog lately. I've been keeping busy with a variety of things, including (in no particular order):

    1. Doing paid copyediting on an academic manuscript on the topic of conceptions of time in African-American science fiction (Octavia Butler, Nalo Hopkinson, Jewelle Gomez). As some of you might guess, this is a pretty satisfying gig for me.

    2. Designing the "visual identity" of "Fugue State," the two-day festival of "expansive music" that Chris M. and I are putting on this summer. I need to write more about that here, later, and it should probably have its own dedicated webpage over at the Rebis page, but suffice it to say that if you like drones and other experimental music, and you're here in Chicago or can get here, you might want to reserve that last weekend in June. Current draft of the poster lives here, if you want to see what I'm up to in that regard.

    3. My band, Number None, has been playing a couple of sets around town lately, including one tonight at the Flower Shop(pe), along with Emeralds, Druids of Huge, Bongripper, Bloodyminded, and my old friends the Birds of Delay (now is a good time to once again link to this ridiculous photo).

    4. Selling a bunch of shit on eBay, including early printings of six Philip K. Dick books, if anyone's interested in that...

    5. Watching my way through the stockpiled third season of Lost, and trying to decide if I want to commit to watching the show through to 2010

    6. Researching literary agents who might be interested in the more-or-less completed novel. The dreaded Guide to Literary Agents lists about a dozen people who are openly interested in "experimental" work, so that might be a good thing.

    7. Photos, photos. Taking lots of walks with the camera, shooting dozens of shots and then posting the best to Flickr in a pretty steady five-a-day pattern. The fifty photos that the computer tells me are the best are here.

    8. Eat, sleep, read, try to remember to pay bills occasionally
