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 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 served as the Founding Director of Gray Blush Gallery and the Managing Editor of Indie Loot. He holds an Master of Arts from the University of Chicago, 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.
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.
If you would like to hire Drew (which he, in turn, would like very much), then the fastest way to reach him is by e-mail: drewmmichaels[at]gmail[dot]com
Lucio should only be considered for hiring purposes if Drew is unattainable, but can also be reached by e-mail: lucioavalentino[at]gmail[dot]com

And one last thing:
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.
