SHAMELESS PLUG - Listen to "Detours" from the Detroit Free Press!

I've been home just about 2 months today from Colorado, and with that mini-milestone comes a big announcement - a new arts/culture show with the Detroit Free Press hosted by yours truly.

The show is called "Detours". The episodes will drop on iTunes, and the Freep website, every Thursday morning. The show is an interview podcast with great artists - local and national - doing things in Detroit. You'll also get a rundown of what's happening for your weekend.

IT'S HERE! Kind of...

Four years of work has comes to this - holding the book in my hands for the first time today.

Around noon I went to WSU Press and thumbed through the full proof copy of "The Orbit Magazine Anthology". This is the copy the designers at the Press used to grade the colors, look, and other factors before they told the printer to make the first run of the book.

"That New Book Smell!"

A few observations: 

1.) It's bigger than I thought it would be - 12 inches by 10 inches. So, consider, almost the size of an LP record sleeve, shave a few inches off the side.

2.) It's heavier than I thought it would be - roughly 3 pounds of goodness.
