I Had a Tweet Made Into a Movie, Too

It just didn’t have the budget that, perhaps, a Rihanna-Lupita heist movie might have (and honestly how great does that sound?). And it wasn’t produced by Netflix. But it was still something. A really cool something. It even won an audience award at the Filminute Festival in 2009. (Directed by Torontonian James Cooper). But it […]

Because There is Always More Stuff

I’ve decided to add some stuff to Medium. Like I’m not content to post stuff to ello, I’m going to post excerpts from the novel-to-be to Medium as well. I must be silly. No sillier than the unbelievably awful and low-point-in-recent-Canadian-history silly Canadian election campaign. But still silly. How silly? This silly: Of course, I’m […]

More Twitter!

I still get interviewed about Twitter. It’s an odd thing, really, I mean most days Twitter feels like it’s on the outs, but then some big news thing happens, and where do you get your news? That’s right. Twitter. At least I do. (The image above is from someone’s Twitter stream and it’s the best […]

This Is What I’m Up To

I believe I’m three quarters of the way through the first draft of my new novel. If I’m following the outline (which has become more like a well-thought out list of well-thought out suggestions rather than an actual set of, you know, instructions that I’m supposed to heed), then I’m three quarters of the way […]

Reviews, Mentions and Related Silliness Concerning Waiting for the Man

I’m not going to read reviews for Waiting for the Man. I took this decision to maintain my sanity. To not think about perception, or more to the point, how my work is being perceived. This is not to say I don’t want people to purchase it and consume and it and, yes, love it. […]

On Paste’s Best of Twitter List

So I made Paste’s Best Twitter Accounts list. That’s three years running. I’m beginning to think I owe them money or something. Yes, I know, I said something about year end lists previously. But there’s something about the Paste list that is very edifying. Always has been. Look who else is on it! Um clears […]

The Year In Review

Yes, yes, yes. I know what I just wrote here. So what? This is my website. Some quick stats: Over 13,000 page views this year. For some people, that’s a good hour on their website. Or a few minutes. But that’s what I got all year. I think that’s less than 2012. I think I […]

Blurbs, Reviews and Good Cheer

Blurbs are rolling in. Rolling, rolling, rolling… The one on the front cover is from Douglas Coupland: “Waiting for the Man is a strangely engrossing, meticulously written allegory of the present moment.” This is from Jonathan Goldstein (host of one of the best shows on radio, Wiretap) and a great writer himself: “With Waiting For […]

An Appearance on British television

BSkyB is Rupert Murdoch’s thing, isn’t it? Well, whoever I owns it, I was featured on a tech news show called, um, Swipe. Yes, that’s the name of it. Here I am. I come in at the 3:10 mark. Right after the cranky man who bemoans the fact young people are writing poetry on digital […]

This Might Be My Favorite Tweet Mention Ever

Here’s a tip: If offered a chance to walk around in @arjunbasu‘s head, politely decline. It would be fascinating, but you WOULD NOT SURVIVE. — lisha cauthen (@lishacauthen) March 23, 2013
