Pop Loser No. 102


Pop Loser

March 16 · Issue #102 · View online

A newsletter of innumerable confusions and a profound feeling of despair collected and written by @poploser.

I have completed my trilogy of pieces for Coax, which is ostensibly a magazine for digital project managers. Travis and Rachel are great and have let me mock digital marketing types mercilessly over the last couple years, as I told people not to chase their stupid dream jobs, to stop talking like fucking assholes and, finally, to just do their goddamned work. When I die, I want links to these articles on my tombstone. 
Some other news: My novel has a cover and a release date and you can pre-order it from the publisher right now. Can’t lie—this is surreal af.
