Why subscribe?

It’s your life, I can’t tell you how to live it. But I’ll post on here occasionally about what I’m watching, listening to, playing, and enduring. You should subscribe to my Washington Post newsletter if you want election coverage, but I will post stories from the beat that wouldn’t fit in the newspaper.

Why “Nova Express?”

It’s a William S. Burroughs cut-up novel that I will freely admit I heard about by reaching “Watchmen,” where it’s the name of the “Rolling Stone” stand-in. Give me a break, I was 13. But I always liked the name and eventually liked the book. Burroughs is my go-to when I feel my own writing getting cluttered and clichéd and want to crawl inside of a completely different brain. Alternative names I toyed with included “This Website is Free” and “Too Hot for OnlyFans,” so you dodged a bullet.

How much do I have to pay?

The same that you pay for the newspapers you read online: Nothing. But this website is actually free so you don’t have to feel bad about it.
