Magical Thinking

"For Christmas this year, my daughter wants Santa to bring her a magic wand that allows her to enter books and movies, interact with the characters, and change their outcomes . . . She also wants the wand to resurrect the dead, though she adds this bonus feature as something of an afterthought, like a stand mixer that also makes sausage."
I'm back on Medium talking about adult American Girl fans, ontological freakouts, and Lovecraftian horror.

Modeling on Medium and More from the Music Center

"In the nicest shot Beatrice is sitting on an overturned trash can with a giant pink plastic flower in her hair, but somehow she makes it look good, which is probably the definition of a born model."

I have my first piece up on Medium, discussing my complicated feelings about Beatrice's short stint as a clothing model.  So far I'm really enjoying the Medium interface, I think I'll stick around.

Also, there are more Music Center episodes up! Check out #7, 8, 9, and 10.


Lastly, I've started working with the home automation startup Cliqk, writing some of their web and social media content and generally helping out.
