Brian Eden performs at the Baltimore 510 Reading Series

Somehow I managed to sucker my way into the lineup of three featured readers at the Baltimore 510 Reading Series.

The 510 is Baltimore’s only dedicated fiction reading series and typically features extremely talented writers who have been published and then translated in a variety of countries like Sheepronesia and Koalastan.

On November 15, they lowered the bar and included me.

I read two essays, “A brief and unpleasant run-in with my ex” and “Fear the laundry.”

Here are videos from the performance. Enjoy.

Fortune magazine just published their list of the world’s 500 largest companies. WalMart is ranked number 1. The company has 2,055,000 employees. Exxon Mobil, the world’s #2 company has a mere 107,100.

If all of WalMart’s employees lived together in the same place, WalMart would be the 5th largest city in the United States, narrowly losing out to Houston Texas.

That is messed up.
