I told El Brando that I would post that Nightmare of You will be doing a very rare, very intimate, acoustic performance at St. John's University in Queens, NY.

WSJU welcomes: Nightmare of You
Thursday, October 6th
St. John's University on the Great Lawn
FREE to all.

Sounds like fun. Wish I could be there.

I've been getting up at 6 or 7am for the past few days to do radio interviews for hours and hours to promote my book. It's been a very interesting experience that i've definitely learned from. My oldest brother Albert would listen in on a few of them and critique me endlessly. Mention the book more. Say the interviewers name. Mention the website. Spell things out. Sell your book. Sell your book. Sell your book. I want to sell my book, but when doing interviews at 7am, I sometimes forget things. I forget to remind the interviewer to mention the name of my book.

When I haven't been talking about myself to people I've never met, I've been going to Shul for Rosh Hashana. Happy New Years. I go to this shul on the upper west side that i've attended my entire life, and yet, I feel like I'm new there. I don't really know too many folks over there, and it's always been a dream of mine to meet a cute boy there... but there aren't many people my age. My shul is really wonderful because I believe it might actually be the oldest congregation in the US (or maybe it's the oldest sephardic congregation... not sure), and it's in this gorgeous building that looks like one of those classic churches, but far less ornate. My favorite part about going there is that there's this powerful male choir who sing the prayers. I'm not sure if the acoustics are remarkable in my shul or what, but I think a band should really record there one day.

Anyway... i wish this were real:
