November 14, 2010 on Adam Riff™:
I am looking for contributors for my web zine, which I plan to launch in January. Each quarterly "issue" will consist of a variety of content (articles, comics, podcasts, et cetera) that is all, in some way, related to a single theme. The theme of the first issue is sleep.
This would have been the cover of Anhedoniac #1:
realized by the talented Jon Wilcox
Among my planned contributions:
Name That Tune
A game show podcast in which contestants try to identify lullaby renditions of popular songs.
A panel (film actor, film director, film critic) critiques performances in films by late night talk show hosts – David Letterman in Cabin Boy, Jay Leno in Collision Course, Conan O'Brien in Storytelling, Jimmy Kimmel in Like Mike, Jimmy Fallon in Almost Famous.
The Princess and the Pee
A comic strip. Only a real princess would remain on a mattress with the bed-wetting prince.
The centerpiece of the issue was gonna be a longread on my snoring, which I have decided to revive and serialize on Adam Riff™.
So coming soon, in chunks: "Night Terror: The Increasingly Paranoid Slumbers of a Hopeless Snorer" by Jon Yu.
