Hi everyone!

Greetings from Flansburgh from downtown Manhattan. I've been in heavy rehearsals with the Loser's Lounge for the first theatrical production of "People Are Wrong!" We want to invite everyone out to our opening night and beyond, starting next Thursday, March 20. There are lots of new songs, and this might be your only chance to see me dance in an organized, choreographed setting. Tickets are available at the theater's box office on the corner of

10th St. and 1st Ave., now at and search for "people

We are working with the much-beloved McSweeney's illustrator Marcel Dzama and there will be a CD with at least 4 new recordings included with the book.
