David Schmader: "To celebrate our 13th anniversary, Jake and I are going to see opening night of the Rep's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, then getting in a big, drunk fight that ends with picking up the pieces of our shattered dreams. Then we'll probably do it.'"

Dave Segal: "DJing the Rare Air night of ambient and New Age music at Q Tuesday night with DJs Explorateur and Struggle (and featuring a live performance by Gel-Sol). Later in the week I'll probably be hitting up various presentations at the EMP Pop Conference."

Katie Allison: "Apparently I will be buying an umbrella hat and wearing it without shame."

Paul Constant: "On Wednesday, I'll be going to see Maria Semple and Dave Eggers talk at Town Hall. It's a fundraiser for 826 Seattle, it's only twenty bucks—cheap for a fundraiser—and I loved the hell out of both Semple's Where'd You Go Bernadette and Eggers's The Circle. On Thursday, I'll probably be braving the crowds to check out Tom Spanbauer at Elliott Bay Book Company because even though he's a Portland writer, Spanbauer sure doesn't come to Seattle that often. Other than that, you'll find me trawling through the discount Easter candy bins all week long.

Charles Mudede: "I'm going to read every review out there of Thomas Piketty's very long and very popular book Capital in the Twenty-First Century. That's a lot of fucking reviews. Here is my review."

Virginal Wolf link is bad.

I had friends that went to see it said it was terrible. The inner tenderness, that Taylor and Burton made come through despite the bickering, didn't come through on this stage.

Are tickets for the Eggers/Semple duel available online or only at the door? Confusingly, it doesn't show up as sold out on Town Hall, just no link to tickets.
