Subpar faux-manga and crappy, cop-out-on-the-plot writing. How this got published in the first place is baffling.
Hopefully, Elvis Costello will laugh all the way to the bank.
Did you give yourself time to actually read the book before writing this piece? Obviously not, as you would have come upon the part where he acknowledges he hasn't been 'in the kitchen' when I kid calls him out on the fact.
I enjoyed his show. His talk on how to scare of kids shitless from 'The Clown, The King, and The Colonel was epic! I think his book takes us through some of the changes his life has taken. I love his descriptive 'food porn' in the middle of the book. It isn't labled as such, but you know when you're reading it....taking you into the experience as he is in it.
He might not be the same Tony in front of a fryer at a shitty no end job, but would we be as impressed or still reading about him today if he was?
The cover is beautiful. If you want more check out Jill Greenberg's "Bear Portraits" book.
I like bears.
I really feel like the cover of this book makes it prime coffee-table material.
I've been a Regretsy reader pretty much since it started and love it. This has given me a bit more of an insight into April. April you are fabulous and you make me laugh. I do love the handmade concept and I love the absurd things you find. Thank you!
I read it, I liked it, I want a sequel. This is one interesting woman. I've been following April's career for the past ten or fifteen years, and she never fails to crack me up. Ask about the Halloween party she held for her fans at the dollar store, or that time she flashed the butcher at Gelson's, or the eBay charity auction of her hand-made adoptable African babies, ala Brangelina. She's funny as hell, and so is Regretsy.
Here's to the great productivity of assholes! Regretsy is truly teh awesome.
Your full title could pretty much be the entire review (it would fit for her last book, too). That probably sounds a little harsh, but if you don't want to be compared to Picasso, don't paint cubist paintings, I guess.
Great interview. I love Etsy and Regretsy!
Great article. I love Etsy and Regretsy.
I love the fact you have a website that makes something wonderful, witty, sarcastic, and intelligent out of a world of oddly fabricated genitalia.
As a seller on Etsy, I really don't see the harm in being featured on her site. I mean, the crap that no would see or buy, actually gets sold a lot of the time just because it was on regretsy! I'm kinda bummed she didn't choose any of MY things for Captain Picard Day!
hey, the more star trek character days you do the better ;-) Live long and prosper April!
Very good interview.
Re(gretsy)tards unite! Together we warm!
April, you are SO getting to exactly where you want to be - Regretsy is awesome!!
And I *love* your concept of "offsetting [your] asshole footprint" - a perfect metaphor. =)
April Winchell, you ROCK! Hope you never stop. I need my daily Regretsy fix!
Oh. And yes I've read all of his damn books. I have a collection of signed first editions of his books. I've seen him speak. I am a Chuck fan-boy.
But seriously. I thought I sold my ignorant on Craigslist.
