A Coke Out of Nostrils Experience

"Romeo and Juliet is a Goddamn timeless template. I saw it set in Ireland with an all female cast and it still worked, one family was all lesbians and one was all dinosaurs. You just can't fuck it up. You dab your eyes at the end and wonder what is so wrong about the love of a lesbian for a dinosaur."

Every once in a while someone tells me my writing reminds them of Tycho's from Penny Arcade. And you know what? I take it for the huge compliment that it's intended to be. The only reason I can think of that the dude hasn't written a novel yet has to do with attention deficit disorder. Too many years playing video games or something.

I'll tell you what. The guy writes a novel, I am so there for the first copy.
