"IT’S THE MUTHAFUNKIN’ CLUB HOMEBOY REEEEEEEEEMIX"
J. J. Marley in Florida thought you might get a kick out of this: “supposedly (according to the interwebs) hoffman is putting kevin’s strowler back on the market in december - long story short: i’ll most likely end up painting the frame a different color and decided to make my own custom decal…the “st” should look familiar?”

I bought this coffee mug four years ago. It says: “write your own story.” That line makes more sense to me now than ever. I’ve been busy writing a novel, Moon Babes of Bicycle City. Over a dozen notebooks, journals and sketchbooks were filled with riffs and research soon to be shown on Instagram at http://instagram.com/moonbabesofbicyclecity — glimpses of what’s been going into the mix of fiction and non-fiction that is Moon Babes of Bicycle City (Spring 2015).
Mark Lewman has read completed chapters of the novel. He wrote: “Fractured fiction latent 80s reverse rollback full of BMX action. Phrases singing like snake bellies on summer pavement jive lofted via curled knuckles whitened on typer handles hot and sweaty. But wondering if by moon babe you meant: betty? This is good and weird Mike.”
