A Message From Caesar
I usually pick the photos for the newsletter because, well, it’s my newsletter. But this week, Saeed insisted on using this picture he took of me when I woke him up from one of his naps on the couch. I don’t exactly see the allure, but it is what it is.
This week on the Vibe Check podcast, Saeed, Zach and Sam go all in on the Oscars because they’re gay and apparently obligated to tell us what they think about the Academy Awards. First they make their predictions for the big categories and then they do a deep-dive on “Everything Everywhere All At Once.” And Saeed recommends the book Love and Other Poems by Alex Dimitrov. You can listen to the episode here.
Also, if you’re in Seattle, Saeed is on his way there right now for the AWP conference. Here’s his schedule for events and panels:
