So the book is underway. I almost cannot stop writing. I want to get it out there into the universe. The Bank and I are curating a lot of information and figuring out what’s going to happen when it’s done. Where it will be available to those who hear about it later (all the regulars here on Lost Angeles Blog will have first crack at it). I am thinking a big whiskey celebration for the release. Somewhere with a rooftop and premium well drinks and no attitudes. We’ll enjoy it together.
Anyway, I wanted to solicit your opinions. We’re shooting for 30 short chapters. I see no point in a 300 page book. We have trouble sitting through 8 minute YouTube clips unless it is people falling off shit and getting injured or pornography. I figure a book weighing in with 30 concise snackable chapters and some 120-150 pages is perfect. And a really good index and glossary of terms, because if you don’t spend a lot of time here, I may not make sense.
So here is my question to you, the people that are always around here… Any ideas you think I should cover? You know me by now. If you don’t, read back and get to know me. I am taking the best suggestions and I am putting them in action. And guess what? You’ll get credit. If I use your idea, it will make it into the print that you were to blame.
That said, throw me some chapter ideas. Here are a few that currently exist or are on their way to existing:
- Red Bull and Vodka Ruined Society
- Tiki Gangsters of the 1960s
- How to Watch People Having Sex at the Standard Downtown
- Don’t $#*@ With the Red Line
- No One Likes to Fight in Silverlake
- Cedd Moses Gets It
Anyway, you get the idea. It could be anything. If you think you have a non-bougie experience or tradition I should know about before writing the definitive book for our city and our extend circle of friends (remember, if you read this, we’re friends), then LET ME KNOW.
Hit me up in the comments, on Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Just don’t complain when the book comes out and it’s missing something YOU didn’t tell me about. I may sound like a know it all, but I’m a great listener.
And I’m listening 🙂
