I'm not much one for resolutions

But this year I'm holding on to mine like a life line. I won't go into the specifics other than to say that they include the usual StopDrinkingStopSmokingGetInShape sorts of of things, as well as one or two others more particular to my situation, all of which could be contained under the rubric of "Quit trying to the same things and expecting different results."

What about you guys? How's you thinkin' about this new decade?

Can't remember who was asking...

... but the artist who did the cow painting that shows up in the photo in People is by Teresa Elliott. She is wonderful, and I love my cow so very much....

Two words. MEAT. HOOK.

All right, guys. I'm going to be at Tom Mylan's extraordinary store, The Meat Hook, in Williamsburg, Bklyn, tonight at 7:30, reading and drinking and eating pig heart. You should all come. Usually my readings are relatively staid because when you're at Barnes & Noble, you can't really depend on folks wanting to hear about gutting animals and horrific sex. But the folks at The Meat Hook can take it, so I'm takin' off the gloves...

As a little fore-taste, here's an interview I did with Tom's wife Annaliese for her great blog, Brooklyn Based.

(I'm sure you NEVER get that, right?)

So I'm going to be here tonight, talking and reading and signing book. Bring two cans of food to donate to the Tulsa Food Bank, and you're in. A good cause AND a book about meat!

This is it. Official book launch. I'll be at the KGB Bar tonight to read; come see! And I'll be on Good Morning America tomorrow morning.

I'm swallowing pills and drinking Diet Pepsi. I'm sure it'll all turn out fine.
