Cool surprise from this interview with Karen Russell that made me really happy:   
Karen Russell: Back at Northwestern, I was fortunate enough to meet the excellent writer Dan Chaon, who came and talked to our writing class. I remember turning in a story to him that was way too long, some twenty-two-page mess about a lady who had a huge starfish and could see the future. I think the character was abducted by these two brothers—I don’t know, I’ve repressed the rest of it.
But Dan was so kind to me about this story, and he told me I should be reading Kelly Link, George Saunders, Kevin Brockmeier. He alerted me to these contemporary writers who were writing weird, inventive stuff. They were New Wave Fabulists, he said.
And I owe them a huge debt; I went on to become a blood-sworn fan of those writers. I felt a sort of tail-wagging joy, you know, reading these story collections. A recognition. It was like Dan rode through town and handed me a literary family tree.

Last night, Sal and I hit up BeerFest in City Market downtown: 20 breweries from central Indiana, each with two or three beers to sample. Throw in some bites from Just Pop In! and Punch Burger, and you’ve got yourself an Event.

See for yourself (tweet and photo courtesy of Becca Manolov).

I DRANK A LOT OF BEER #WINKFACEEMOTICON

Still the most beautiful Game Boy ever ⊟
We featured this design a month ago before it was assembled, but I’m sharing the custom Game Boy again since it’s all put together and absolutely gorgeous.
I really hope Georgina and Stardriver make and sell more of these — chiptune artist Trey Frey already claimed this unit and integrated it into his setup.
