I saw Lynda Barry speak at The Strand bookstore tonight in support of her new book, "What It Is". I can't summarize it at the moment, it was inspirational and hilarious.
Updates: here's a link to an mp3 of Lynda Barry on the same tour in Philly.
And now a good interview with her via The Comics Reporter & Journalista.
Following that was the new Harlan Ellison documentary, which was also inspiring and hilarious, though in a different key altogether. I will try to write something about seeing these 2 luminous beings in the same night, but for the moment this blog is just pointing to them.
Update: Harlan Ellison interview mp3 on Salon.
