Drunk on truth to stupid baby power.

Today is The Tusk’s One-Year Anniversary


Exactly one year ago, we published our first post, “Baby Teeth” by Tom Batten, in which Tom went through his old CDs and dissected his former¬†musical loves. Since then we’ve been a runaway hit with teens; Gawker linked to us; we’ve gone to the Association of Writers and Writing Programs¬†in Seattle and made plans for a reading at the next AWP in Minneapolis; we’ve submitted stuff to the Pushcart Prize; we’ve interviewed Tom Scharpling and Julie Klausner; we’ve been yelled at by gun nuts and self-righteous Bay Area residents and one anti-semitic songwriter; we’ve published a ton of stuff we’re super-proud of, a different piece more or less every weekday. Pretty good for a website I’m still having to explain to family members and acquaintances isn’t my personal LiveJournal or a porno site or a book or a painting or an imaginary dog.

Seriously though, thanks so much for reading, sharing, and if you’ve ever written for us, especially thanks for that. Onward and upward!
