Quip Stop: David Sedaris

After a few months in my parents' basement, I took an apartment near the state university, where I discovered both crystal methamphetamine and conceptual art. Either one of these things are dangerous, but in combination they have the potential to destroy entire civilizations.

If you to you can hear segments that David Sedaris has done for This American Life. Go to their archives and listen to Act 3 of the Parrot and the Potbellied Pig. Brilliant! Insane! Oddly moving! The man is a genius!

You can read "You Can't Kill The Rooster" here, at the Rooster's own website. (NSFW)

For those of you who haven't read David Sedaris (JessNess...) you must run out and grab one of his books. He is one of a few writers who makes me cry I'm laughing so hard. It can be embarrassing to read his stuff on the subway or in any public place because people might think you're crazy--unless they have read him, too, and then they're like, oh, right, Sedaris. Understood. "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Naked," etc. He writes short essays so they're quick reads, too. I think in "Barrel Fever" he has a TRUE ACCOUNT of being a Macy's Elf one year when he couldn't find work. I might excerpt it here. You will die! MUST. READ. SEDARIS.

You can't kill the Rooster! I love how the Rooster always calls his dad "b*tch" or "motherf*cker" and his dad thinks it's hilarious.

I love this man. Especially his chapter on The Rooster in "Me Talk Pretty One Day."

Giggle at first I thought you were talking about yourself and I was like whhhhaaattttt????? But then I realized it was that guy. Why does he have a monkey on his shoulder.He doesnt look like he was a meth addict. What a weird man I like to go to overseas places- like Canada! -Britney Spears
