I wrote another piece for the always-excellent LOOP e-newsletter: this one's about one of my college roommates. I think Lauren's introductions to each issue are getting funnier every week, and it's nice to exercise the ol' non-fiction voice a bit.

Elsewhere, Blake Butler talks about music and drinks gin.
