On May 15, 2012, I competed at Write Club San Francisco. My randomly assigned, arbitrary topic was “Rest” (vs. Motion). This is me reading my piece entitled “Adam and Eve in the Garden of Quantum-Entangled, Lovelorn Photons: A Memoir”.
You’ll have to watch to find out if I won. (Spoiler alert: I won.)
Write Club, AKA “Literature as Bloodsport”, is a battle of words between two writers in a raucous, beer-filled arena, on a stage fit for rock stars. Victory is decided by audience applause, and the door money goes to a charity of the winners’ choice.

I chose Kiva as my charity. Kiva is a micro-lending organization that facilitates very small loans to entrepreneurial people in developing countries. Currently, you can make a $25 “free trial loan”, meaning you pay nothing, and the $25 comes from an anonymous party helping to promote Kiva.
Sooo… do that! It’s stupid-easy, free money to someone for whom it’s worth about six times as much.
We were there, supporting Gabriel and clapping as loud as we could. It paid off. You should give it a listen, the guy is good.
