Sorry for the lack of updates yesterday and today. I have both a bad cough and severe food poisoning, which is either harrowing or convenient depending on where I'm sitting. Will return Monday...

A few weeks ago I had a great interview with one of Europe's biggest newspapers. Three million Europeans, the reporter promised me, would soon be learning all about Poop Culture. It was to be a full page on the cover of their arts section dedicated to my theories on, among other things, the media's...

This weekend I made a cameo appearance as a poop expert on NPR's "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me". For those of you who aren't NPR fanboys like me, WWDTM is a hilarious comedy show news quiz. I listen every week; so it was a huge honor for me to actually be part of it. You can listen to it here; I'm...

My recent lectures in Iowa and Baltimore, and the success of the book release party last weekend here in Brooklyn, have proven to me that people want to appreciate intellectual poop humor in forums other than the web. The country just might be ready for a traveling poop show. First stop:...

I sit here a little frightened, having just got off the phone with a major newswire service. They're going to run a story about Poop Culture in the next couple days, they tell me -- a 150-word announcement going directly to over eight hundred media outlets about who I am, what the book is about,...

Way back in the dark ages of the year 2000, PoopReport ran a contest to coin a term describing the incredible feeling of universal oneness that only comes after an especially satisfying poop. ("Poophoria" was the term I best identified with.) I wish we had also named that equally-overwhelming...

I got an email a few days ago from a certain douchebaggy former PoopReporter who shall remain nameless (but you veterans know exactly who it is). He tells me "Turns out I'm a music savant" and "{I earn} 50-100 bucks and hour, + royalties, + contracts" and "Getting booted from {PoopReport} was the...

So the publisher of Poop Culture had a major problem with the idea of a collection of PoopReport's greatest hits at this moment in time. (More details about that on the forums.) So that's on hold for now. However, the image of a thousand PoopReporters' fists plunged triumphantly into the air is...

The next step on my quest to reach #2 on the New York Times bestseller list is complete. I have set up a website for my book: There you can learn more about the content of the book, read the latest news (which is just an RSS feed of this column right now, but will include signing...

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...

It was in March of 2004 when I got my first email from Adam at Feral House. That April, after returning to the States from my stint in London, I flew out to meet him in LA. We signed a contract in August, at which point I began writing in earnest. Since then, the book has been an abstraction to...

You may recognize The Captain's Log as the little news items on the front page that I never, ever update. Well, it's time that changed. With the book coming out in the spring, I'm going to use this feature more often to keep you up to date and excited about all the things that (I hope) will...
