Do you smell it? That sort of burning hair smell, with just a hint of Homme by David Beckham?
That, my friends, is excitement. And we are marinating in it over here.
First of all, aprilwinchell.com is slowly coming back to consciousness. And there you all are, standing around, looking up its dress. It’s beautiful metaphor, isn’t it? That’s what we call “wordsmithing” where I come from.
It will take me some time to get blogging regularly, but for the moment, I wanted to give you a little taste of what used to pass for entertainment over here.
First, I have reactivated all my archived radio shows and podcasts, starting back to my first shows on KFI in 2000.
Secondly, I have made my enormous library of terrible music available again, and I’m anticipating a wave of new ringtones within my readership. Now all you need is someone to call you, but I can’t do everything.
Third, I’m slowly going through the site and republishing old material that I think has retained a trace of comedic value. I’m just going for a hint of flavor here, so don’t get your hopes up. Of course, if you’ve read my writing for any length of time, you’ve already learned how to manage your expectations.
And finally, what are you doing Friday? Say, 8:00?
If you said, “Having fun,” you were wrong.
Instead, I’d like to suggest you give this a try:
Rob Paulsen and I will be at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Theatre on February 8th, reading some of my favorite hate mail. We’ll be performing your flounces and angry Tweets and bad book reviews in a variety of cartoon voices. If you live in Los Angeles and want to come see whatever the hell this is, click here for tickets and show information.
BUT HOLD ON
Our friends at UStream are going to broadcast this LIVE, so you can see it wherever you are. You can chat, you can complain, you can heckle us, and you can submit questions for the Q & A part of the show. And if you can’t watch it live, you can download the event from Ustream later, when you’ve sobered up.

Like all marginal entertainment, HATE MAIL isn’t free. But it’s only $4.99, and a portion of that will go to The Wounded Warrior Project.
Hope you can make it!
