I may have found one of my new favorite writers this morning. His name is Dan Kennedy and he is a contributing writer to the website Timothy McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. This site is a wonderfully written collection of columns but this one set me laughing out loud.
Give yourself a treat today and take a look at this and other articles on this site. The writing is witty and tight.
I’m mopping up my laughing tears in anticipation of the next article.
Here’s a taste:
Hats off to your laissez–faire attitude about the beautiful dinner you guys cooked up at the beach this summer. I was cracking up at the joke you made in the caption (“Looks like we’re eating outside AGAIN. Oh, well…”) under the snapshot of the gorgeous lobsters. The potatoes looked amazing fading off into the blur of a shallow focal range that ends at the saturated greens and yellows of herbs, and cornbread, and lemon garnish on the left just below where the sunset creates the lens flare that bounces off your icy bottle of beer. You must’ve literally JUST pulled that cold one from the tub or cooler I see there on the right next to your, hello, preternaturally attractive mate (unthinkable that they’re whiling away weekdays toiling over files and phone calls in a room someplace like the rest of us rubes. They could be making in one day what the rest of us are paid in a month if they would just model, already).
