My writing is primarily concerned with karaoke, television shows, dark omens, dietary monotony, and shame spirals. I started this blog in order to write like Lester Bangs, but ended up sounding more like Martha Nussbaum.

I have a Ph.D. from the University of California, Irvine. In addition to literature, my official sub-field is “Ethics,” because I wanted to pick something that would make my friends laugh uncontrollably.

This blog is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to persons living or dead, including and especially Dr. Joseph Kugelmass, is purely coincidental.

Comments, e-mails, distracting pets, and small holdings all become the legal property of The Kugelmass Episodes, an entity that the Supreme Court has given the same Constitutional rights as a human being.
