Another Eggers Dandy

Dave Eggers has done it again.

In What is the What Eggers assumes the voice of Valentino Achat Deng to craft an 'autobiographical' account of his life and his formative years spent surviving the atrocities of the Sudanese civil war. It's a truly moving story, and beautifully told. I know you're busy, but if you can make time to read the novel i know that you'll be happy that you did. Additionally, all of the proceeds from the novel are going to community rebuilding programs in Sudanese villages, so it's a win-win.

Buy the novel
Disregard this post and have a laugh

Just Weird Enought to Post

It is not secret that i make it a point to visit Gorilla vs. Bear every day. He just posted this video from Black Moth Super Rainbow member Tobacco, and frankly, it's awesome.

Oh, and i'd also like to congratulate myself for dominating* the voting in the inaugural Blues From Down Here poll, being named the real deal in a friend group full of two-bit hacks.

It should be noted that I do realize that the poll itself was erred by the fact that it cuts off the 'kingdoms' of the other contestants.
