The next free chapter, Chapter 12, will be up on Frances Farmer's birthday.
I had to push back the release for the next full issue, five (Chapters 14, 15, and 16), by two weeks--it'll be available on October 4. School is taking up too much of my time and it looks like I'll be moving soon, too. I've found a place around five blocks away, run by a relative of my sister's fiancé. A one bedroom for the same price as the studio I'm in now. Unlike my current place, it has windows large enough for an air conditioner, it's across the street from a bay, it's within walking distance of a grocery store and several restaurants and, best of all, it has reliable running water. It was, as they say, a no-brainer.
I heard late in the day yesterday that Joan Rivers passed away which was weird because I just heard her on The Howard Stern Show a few weeks ago talking about how "everything still works", how she was in good health. And she sounded like it, she certainly sounded like she had a lot more energy than anyone I know. I can't say I liked everything about her--I certainly didn't agree with her hardline support of Israel. But I did enjoy her agile humour and her general insistence on not taking herself or anyone else seriously. She was always a good interview.
