Named after my long-gone college radio show, which was named after a They Might Be Giants song, which in turn was actually a cover of a Devo song, through being cool is where I dump all of my thoughts related to writing, theater, identity, and whatever I feel complaining about. I started this newsletter to keep y’all updated on what I’m doing in the theater world, how my life is going, and to keep myself accountable to my plans for writing. (Spoiler alert: I end up backing out, flaking, and self-sabotaging as need be. That’s just how it goes, sometimes.) Part journal, part manifesto, all proof that I’m through being cool.
