If you haven't seen them yet, HBO has two new videos up, an extended trailer and a 4-minute "Making Of", both of which have a ton of dialog and are totally bad-ass. See them here and here, and discuss, at BOT.

Who woulda known that being unemployed would mean even LESS free time?
I got laid off from the last gig at the beginning of the year. From the same company that I first blogged about back in 2004 when I had about ten readers. Fast forward five years and I'm back to having, oh, about ten readers. And most of those are just people who accidentally left me in their feed reader when my blog withered and then cratered in '08.
Fortunately I just got hired again. Not starting til the 15th, so you'd think I'd have lots of free time now that the job search is over. You'd think.
Anyway, those of you who haven't figured out how to delete me from your feed reader are probably having PTSD flashbacks since you're probably seeing reruns of the part of my archives from the week of Katrina that I have been able to restore and republish. More coming at some point, in roughly chronological order.
Meanwhile, in the Newly Published arena, I have a story up online at the new issue of Ghoti Magazine, Issue #21. Click the link, click on the microphone, click on my name, read. It's easy.
I've also got non-fiction tentatively scheduled to come out this summer online at The Northville Review.
That is all. I'll keep you posted. I just ordered HBO, so hopefully lots more here as Treme winds up. I imagine I'll have opinions.
