…it’s the Summer of Dora. So many amazing things are happening right now, my carpal tunnel will explode out of my hands and onto the keyboard if I try to type them all. This will be a very brief post, as I need to cross at least one Craphouse item off of my to-do list…
Flower Day Recap and a Quickie Craphouse Update
Flower Day was a blast! It rained like crazy, the temperature was five degrees less than comfortable for the clothes I was wearing, the wind kept blowing my hair into my face and the faces of those around me (couldn’t find a ponytail holder, sorry Eastern Marketers), and I’m on the tail end of a…
Rebuild Your Soil With a Garden Party
Bioremediation Action is holding a planting party this Friday, May 6th at the Mulberry Center at the corner of Lincoln and Selden (the actual address is 3716 Lincoln) in Detroit. They’ll be planting bioremediators around a grey water system they recently removed. Bioremediators are plants which draw heavy metals such as lead or mercury, along…
New CH Note (FB)
This weekend will be a milestone in the Craphouse renovation (can I call it a renovation at this point, when it’s really more of a make-it-moderately-sanitary-so-we-can-at-least-move-in-ovation?) — I’m kicking the weekend off with a big ol’ mess of plaster.
The Craphouse Chronicles’ new blog pages will be up soon. We’ve found some hideous house-eating fungus @ the CH and my days have been all about that for the past week or so. I’ll update you here and on our new Facebook fan page once the new blog is up! Also: the next (and hopefully…

Mark Your Calendars
Comedy Dates April 18, 8pm @ Joey’s Comedy Club in Livonia – I’ve been invited to participate in their annual Ladies Night of Comedy. I’m sharing the stage with some of Detroit’s funniest women. May 8, 8pm @ Monte’s in Mt. Clemens – I’m MCing this show. The truly hilarious Bob Phillips is the feature…
I love ’em. Who doesn’t? I also love talking about ’em…but I’m a natural-born lazy-ass and in-depth reviews which take into account the director’s past work, actors’ growth as artists, and the entire history of cinematography and the technology behind filmmaking are not going to come from me. So I’m going to start rating movies…
Comedy @ Warfield Grill
Menace and Whimsy
I almost forgot all about this whole shameless self-promotion thing. An excerpt from my (as yet untitled) NaNoWrimo’d novel will be published in the Spring issue of A cappella Zoo. The excerpt, “These Troubles, Oh No”, was accepted pdq; the editor called me just a couple of days after I had submitted it. This really…
