Friday Report, Weekend Music



I've been busy at work and my car is back and the shop, so a bit overwhelmed. I just realized I forgot to post the link to the elimination episode of "American Idol" on Wednesday night. Lacey, not surprisingly, went home. You can read the full recap at Project Q Atlanta.

Sadly, Conquering Venus was not selected as one of the finalists for the Lambda Literary Awards. On the upside, Venus is officially a nominee for the Georgia Author of the Year Award for First Novel and those awards will be handed out in June. Fingers crossed.

My next reading is a big one: The Writer's Center in Bethesda, MD. I'll be reading along with poet Susan Tichy on Sunday, March 28, at 2 p.m. If you're in the D.C. area, I hope you'll come out and say hello.

And for my weekend music selection (that's the video above) -- the brilliant Swedish band Miike Snow and their song "Silvia." Their debut album is one of the best things I've heard so far this year.
