2013: The Final Chapter
to get a celebration. Every year has a specific celebration in mind. New Year’s
Eve provides a beautiful time to get surrounded by drunken loved ones. Whether
or not any alcohol is consumed remains irrelevant the result is the same. Drunk
off of the good feelings of the end of the year people celebrate everything
they have and have not accomplished. Goals take a long time to accomplish
moving slow like molasses. Fortunately for the 2013 end of the year celebration
there will be some books dedicated to delicious and oh
so nutritious molasses. At Molasses Books will be the ever-joyful 2013 Beachie winner, Eric Nelson.
host of the Beachies, one Beach Sloth, shall begin the fantastic celebration.
For this particular event Beach Sloth shall pull out all conceivable stops,
probably. Elated off of the enormous success of the Beachies Beach Sloth shall
once more climb down from his tree to read brand new material. Or Beach Sloth

Benoit of NAP magazine and Beachie fame shall follow with a beautiful touching
reading of ‘Something’. Everyone who can make it ought to make it. Literally hundreds
of thousands of people know of Thais Benoit’s life-affirming words. Fewer know
of her excellent meal-sharing program she hosts every Sunday. Helping tens of
New Yorkers feed themselves Thais Benoit is a caring generous individual.
Thimo and Moon Temple shall be there too. A proud couple and the best couple
Beach Sloth has ever met in real life, they are a force to be reckoned with.

slated to appear in the most highly anticipated collection of the year, Pop
Serial 5. With this reading each of them shall unleash their new work onto an
unsuspecting audience. Anyone in the audience ought to be ready for Theo’s
celebration of an anarchist or Moon’s celebration of birds. Yes they love
anarchist birds. Late at night the two of them dream of Big Bird defying the
power structure of Sesame Street.
Michael McDowell, better known as ‘Buttercup’ by his friends, ends the historic
event. Mammal, Habitat, some other things, that is all him. 2013 has treated
Stephen Michael McDowell well with awards thrown upon him. Among these awards
are the Beachies, an increased amount of Twitter followers, and the
ever-elusive respect. People respect Stephen Michael McDowell because he does
it harder than anyone.

is fairly easy for a day that extends deep into the next day. New Year’s Eve
shall be fine and the reading is simply a ‘warm-up’ for the rest of the
hopefully debauched night.
