My brother Ian's getting married and wrote about it on his blog for all to see... which was subsequently linked to from Even Williams who created blogs.

I think they'll be happy together. Modulo my bro throwing the occasional poisoned squirrel
dance (family nomenclature for a temper tantrum) ... the great thing about Ian and Tessa is that
they live large. Hanging out with them is a bit like WIlliam Joyce' book A Day With Wilbur Robinson. They make movies, they go to parties with movie stars on the upper west side, they have a home in the Berkshires. I'm not envious, really (no really) -- I'm just glad they let me tag along from time to time.

Books I've read lately:
Maximum Ice by Kay Kenyon. A strange cyber-techno-post-apocalyptic novel that was fun to read. Love those cannibal ice witches and giant herds of ravenous rats.

The Impossible Bird is a wacky afterlife book that combines family drama, holographic data storage in hummingbirds, and a bit of the ultra-violence. Oh, and the author lives near Detroit and familiar settings from DEMF show up at the end of the book.
