Well, over at 33 1/3 they’ve finally made the big announcement we’ve been holding our breath for. Much to our delight, Television’s Marquee Moon (1977) and The Rolling Stones’ Some Girls (1978) will be added to the series’ list of titles …
… and we’re writing them! I’m sure I speak for the other guy when I say these projects will be dreams come true — for us at least! We’re honored, certainly, to have made it to the “chosen eleven.” We’ll be working on these volumes, which we’ve conceptualized as part of our larger engagements with NYC cultural history, with a tentative deadline of summer 2010. I’m sure we’ll have some updates to post as we go.
Congratulations! Huge fan of the series, and excited to read your guys’ takes on it!
Woo hoo! I can’t wait to brag and say I was taught by you guys.
Here’s a fun little link to celebrate:
Maybe some day on your book tours you can request a full-size snooker table to be at every venue.
Holy shit, what kind of luck is that? I can’t believe you both get to publish a 33 1/3… congrats!
Hey, E. I’d prefer to think of it as a convergence of stars. (A beard of stars at the very least; perhaps a conspiracy of beards.)
But the answer is, yes, holy shit, we do feel lucky, even though at some level our efforts were coordinated. (This is probably a side effect of teaching together for several years and launching other NYC-oriented publishing projects.)
Thanks, too, for the link to your blog, which I’ll certainly keep an eye on. I already lost half an hour or so on it tonight. And I’m supposed to be working!
And as for you, Andrea K, I do need help with that joke about the cats and the junkies.
The keys belong in the bowl, not in the owl, correct?
Yes, they belong in the bowl. An owl would be…awkward. I even thought I double-checked it.
Anytime you need a joke-writing workshop, you know where I live!
