Everybody’s Talking at Once collects the unsolicited thoughts of two freelance writers, whose names are Drew Messinger-Michaels and Lucio Valentino, and who both thank you heartily for stopping by.
Drew is currently a professional software-and-business-know-abouter, and has written for the Chicago arm of The A.V. Club (under the auspices of the ever-expanding Onion media empire), Newcity, UChicago Arts, and about half a dozen other online publications. He’s written some tech stuff as well. He served as the Founding Director of Gray Blush Gallery and the Managing Editor of Indie Loot. He holds a Master of Arts from the University of Chicago, where his thesis focused on Portal because of course it did, and he makes a mean matzo ball soup.
Lucio currently has no impressive credentials under his belt and is grateful and happy to share a space for thought with his much accomplished brother-from-another-mother. He loves bridging the gap between high culture and pop culture and, if family and friends are to be believed, is a decent writer and thinker and makes a fantastic pot of jambalaya. He insisted that Drew use the self-deprecating bio he wrote for himself, and Drew wasn’t happy about doing so, which is why Drew added this sentence.
Everybody’s Talking at Once is dedicated to the proposition that we should take the things we love seriously without ever taking ourselves too seriously.

We welcome and appreciate comments—and in fact, so far we’ve responded to every single comment that anyone’s ever made on anything we’ve written here—but if at any point you start being a jerk to other posters (or to us), then we do reserve the right to delete your comment(s), and to ban you from commenting in our space in the future. Hasn’t happened so far, though, knock on wood.
