    In advance of the Thought Catalog re-issue of the novel based on my own experiences with schizophrenia, now called ‘Schizophrenic Connections’, here’s the trailer I put together for the book a few years ago. 

    The release of the new edition is coming up soon and should be here in the next couple weeks. 

    It’s been revamped, re-edited for impact, and it’s got an effin’ awesome new cover I can’t show you guys yet but if you can hold onto your butts a little while longer, it’ll be worth it. 

    In the meantime, please reblog this post to get the word out, and if you’re seeing this post as a reblog feel free to follow me on Tumblr, Twitter, or Thought Catalog for the latest on the book and for a buttload of other awesome stuff. 

    You guys are awesome. 

  • Orphaned Tumblr Storyboard Posts Find New Home on Mashable

    Tumblr’s Storyboard was a daily read for many Mashable editors, so we’re offering to publish some of its planned stories in the wake of its shut-down.

  • This was going to be my first piece for Storyboard. It’s a feature profile of Chris Gethard and The Chris Gethard Show

    jessicasuarez:

    A week or so ago I turned in my first piece for Storyboard, a profile of Chris Gethard and The Chris Gethard Show. Storyboard shut down last night. I was excited about writing my first long feature piece in two years, and excited to write a profile of a comedy show where there are stunts and fart jokes and dildos, but where the audience asks questions on suicide and antidepressants and anxiety. Where things are just sad sometimes, and how more TV could work. Like how David Foster Wallace said, a medium that could actually reflect reality (49% pleasure, 51% pain). 

    So last night when I heard Storyboard shut down I felt terrible, and embarrassed that I had wasted the time of everyone involved, and I just sat and cried (and watched the Knicks get the Atlantic division title) and cried. Now that I think about it, that’s exactly the ending I deserve for thinking it would be funny to do a profile of a comedy show that starts and ends with people weeping (as you’ll see below). 

    Anyway so if you like my feature, please share it, because it’s not like it’s going anywhere else.

  • Tumblr Shuts Down Storyboard 'For Now,' Says Editorial Team Is `Moving On'

    baddeal:

    We’re sad to hear this news, as Storyboard was a brilliant experiment in journalism and we hope it returns soon. It’s part of what separated Tumblr from the rest of the social media and blogging community; Storyboard was curated and it was editorial. It was a coherent and human voice that Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter all lacked and still lack.

    Storyboard was an effort to give a voice to and shed light on Tumblr users like Jay Batlle, who creates beautiful art out of restaurant stationary. Storyboard told fascinating stories like how Lombardi’s and Motorino managed to keep serving pizza New in the wake of Superstorm Sandy’s power outages. 

    Stoyboard is why we know about the Letters to Newtown project. 

    Journalism is at a crossroads right now. It’s never been the most profitable of business models. We hope that the good people at Tumblr, who have been in immensely generous in giving a voice to us at The Bad Deal and The Price Hike, will come to see the value in producing editorial content, in giving good work to good journalists, and in helping to foster an ailing industry that’s the one of the backbones of our global community. 

  • What’s up with Storyboard?

    So many questions! Well just one answer, for now: Storyboard will continue publishing through this Friday, 4/12. We’re going to run everything we had scheduled for this week and a few other things finished in the queue. I strongly encourage you to tune in … while we’re sad to miss out on a lot of great planned stories, we will thankfully get to run a few more amazing things. And then that’s it for Storyboard, in terms of what it’s been so far. What happens next will no doubt be explained somewhere else, at some other time. Thanks for reading!

    staff:

    A year ago, Tumblr did something unprecedented — we created an editorial team of experienced journalists and editors assigned to cover Tumblr as a living, breathing community. The team’s mandate was to tell the stories of Tumblr creators in a truly thoughtful way — focusing on the people, their…

Interviews make you crazy! Just kidding… that’s my “there’s a dog outside” face. 

Great chat with Amy Grantham and Matt Creed yesterday, re: their movie Lily, which is based on Amy’s Tumblr and is in competition at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month. Interview coming shortly!

  • BajoFondo in the house, y’all! They’re an electrotango powerhouse – eight soulful music makers from Argentina and Uruguay – that’s voiced by Gustavo Santaolalla (Oscar-winning composer of Brokeback Mountain and Babel). Major jam session uptown at Harlem’s famed StadiumRed today. Rock!  

  • Are you going to the Tribeca Film Festival?

    If you are, maybe we can meet up and chat. Just like we did with Sundance, Tumblr Editorial will be at Tribeca doing interviews and stories with filmmakers and other creative types — even if you just have a Tumblr and love movies. If you’d like to hang out, hit our askbox with the dates and times you’ll be there and what you’d like to talk about. We’ll have such a time!
