Pics of me and you and everyone we know
This weekend was my photoshoot for Angie's List Magazine. As you may recall, the editors of that august publication wisely realized that nothing complements a story about toilets better than a picture of a certain webmaster whose ego is swelling by the day. We couldn't get into CBGBs like we hoped, so we decided to do the shoot at my home and at a bar near my house. (Commonwealth in Park Slope, Brooklyn, for those who want to do a Dave-themed pub crawl.) My lovely wife Jenny (who convinced me to wear a suit -- NOT my idea) took photos of the photographer taking photos of me:
If the photographer was amused or confused or disgusted to be taking pics of some dude and his computer in a toilet, he didn't show it. He was very enthusiastic as he had me go through a variety of poses -- sitting on the toilet, sitting on the tank, sitting on the floor with my arm around the toilet (NOT at the bar, fortunately), looking pensive, looking disgusted, looking happy, looking intellectual, and so on. It was a good experience, and I hope there will be another one (at which I will surely demand a make-up artist, a personal assistant, a free buffet, and a private bathroom).
The other big news of the week is that the Journal of Ass Production has arrived! The long-awaited issue #2: professionally printed, book bound, sixty pages long, and really quite entertaining. Behold just one of the boxes the unhappy mailroom guy had to drag all the way up to the sixteenth floor.
If you're a fan of PoopReport, you'll love the Journal. And when you get one, you're not just investing in the world's best toilet reading -- you're supporting the PoopReport empire.
It's an empire that continues to grow. You already know that I set up a PoopReport Myspace page; this week we can thank SamDamnit for creating a Myspace PoopReport discussion group. And just yesterday our old friend Trevor has set up a PoopReport group on Flickr for sharing photos that fit the PoopReport theme. Thanks to Trevor's PR efforts, there are already thirty-two photos in the slideshow. If you've got a Flickr account, please join the group!
