Well, last night was sort of the kickoff of this Hodgman tour, we did our little show at the Mark Twain museum in Hartford. Nice crowd, beautiful space, even a giant screen and a DVD player so I could do Flickr (the audience was all, “What the hell? Who’s Dwyer?”). And then I met a couple of ladies who grew up in my own hometown of Colchester, CT. Where tradition meets tomorrow, you know. This morning stumbled into a car when it was still dark so we could get to Boston in time to be on the NECN morning show. Tonight, Brookline Booksmith, and then my show at the Paradise Lounge.
Now, if you’ll allow me this, may I recommend: Dethroner. This is a new blog from Joel Johnson, at whose bloggage I used to laugh very hard when he was at Gizmodo. He describes Dethroner as “Maxim for MAKE readers” or “Men’s Vogue for Men,” and there certainly seems to be a lot of talk about manly things like beer and vests. Read it and weep.
See you tonight Boston…
