Bonus Post- The Goog attends the Welcome to Night Vale book signing
On October 21st, I didn't go back to any sort of present future, I went to the first show of the Welcome to Night Vale book tour. I was lucky that the tour started not only in Massachusetts, but a short bus ride from my home, at the Regent Theater, in Arlington!
The moderator for the pre-signing talk was Laurie Penny, who was very funny and often geeked out along with the crowd over the answers that creators, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, gave. She asked them about how they first met, which was in NY (Washington Square, I believe) where Cranor was doing a performance art piece where he burned a book he did not like. After the performance, Fink came up to talk to him and told him it was the most immoral thing he had ever seen. They have worked together ever since.
