More than a few people have asked me if I have given any thought to writing a book, and my answer is always the same: WHERE DEM DOLLAZ AT. Which is my way of saying that I like the sound of it, but I’m not sure if it’s
The way it usually works with zany blogs that get book deals is that they simply repurpose the online content into a book, but that wouldn’t really work for SYWH. First of all, without Youtube embeds it wouldn’t be nearly as good. Second, there is no way I could even get clearance for all the copyrighted images I get away with using online, and finally I’m not sure the shelf-life of most SYWH content is long enough that it would even be relevant in a book.

Since I can’t just copy-and-paste my way into Urban Outfitters, I thought of a couple other ideas, let me know wat u think:
- ADVICE BOOK FOR SOCIALLY AWKWARD BUT SMART AND AMBITIOUS BROS WHO DON’T WANT TO BE BETA LOSERS: Could build on the love advice posts I’ve done on here and include chapters on work, school, personal finance, etc. Basically, ‘how not to be a fuckup, from someone who almost was one’
- BOOK ABOUT HOW GAY AND LULZY YET ALSO AWESOME 90s PUNK/HARDCORE WAS: Tell stories of about ridiculous shit like vegan bake sales, Mean Steve from One Life Crew’s tanning salon, etc but also touch on how much of an incredibly positive impact it made on me and interview cool people like the dudes from Champion. Like “Burning Fight,” only not gay and boring.
I only know a little bit about the publishing industry but I bet someone reading this knows a lot. Good idea, bad idea, foolishly naive hubris or all of the above??? Halp!
