Kitman is an attorney and he reviews automobiles for Automobile Magazine. His prose is casual and quite funny. His article, "Our Roadies, Ourselves", which appeared in the February 1988 issue, is a story of a Giant road trip with Johns Flansburgh and Linnell, Bill Krauss, and himself in a Plymouth Voyager.
Jamie Kitman on TMBG
From Downtown Magazine
The starting point for my management career was the unshakeable belief that the world wouldn’t be a better place until as many people as possible knew about They Might Be Giants... If I had to name a person who inspired me first and longest, it would be TMBG’s John Flansburgh. His work ethic is extreme yet highly-admirable, if possibly toxic to lesser men and women, but what I love the most is his resilience. His partner in TMBG, John Linnell, whom I love dearly, is obviously a very motivated genius as well.
They're some type of cranky New England Yankees, you know? Uh..I could say if you were trying to put the sort of sub-species of people that they're in, they have Puritan elements to their components; they have, like, old-fashioned New England liberal elements, and also, they're sort of these really boho Williamsburg art-fuck type of tendencies—and I say that in a caring way.
