The Mixed Tape Manifesto: A Pop Culture Confessional

Spectacularly printed coffee table book filled with tons of photography.

It’s been a long time coming, but the hardcover version of The Mixtape Manifesto: A Pop Culture Confessional has arrived and they look great! Pick up your copy from Amazon.

The book reads as a compilation of articles or short essays—almost like flipping through a magazine—with an overarching, well, let’s call it “progression of maturity”. Things centralize around me dealing with and processing relationships; relating love and loss to music, movies, and tv shows. Just thoughts on life with lots of shout outs to 80s, 90s, and 00s pop culture—my heart on my sleeve relating common feelings to common themes. Those of you who enjoy Chuck Klosterman would probably enjoy this read.

The Biggest Little City brought out the cosplay for the Reno Sands Comic Con! Big thanks to the fandom, organizers, and exhibitors of this year’s convention!

I’ll start out by saying how tired I am–today (Monday) was rough after the whirlwind weekend and long drives–but I’d do it all over again in a second. I can’t understate how warm the reception was. Wow. Serious. Reno really made me feel special! I got to meet dozens of amazing individuals and our conversations won’t fade in my memory any time soon. That’s what these shows are all about–the connection.

Speaking of which, I understand how risky it is taking a chance on an author or book you’ve never heard of. With that said, Reno took a chance on me. Thank you. The Final Book: Gods made its way into a lot of hands and that blows my mind. A few even began reading it right away and came back the next day to say how they couldn’t put it down. Those are the types of things you never imagine.
