David: “This is it! The very first academic essay ever written about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Yes, that’s right, I founded Buffy Studies. (Never read any of it though or was invited to any of their silly conferences. But you know something? That’s okay.)”
David: “rejected at the last minute by both Harpers and London Review of Books, for reasons never explained, this sets out some of the ideas for our forthcoming book”

David: “In case you were wondering what really happened at Yale.”
David: “(this one was painful to write, made me depressed for a week, but I feel it’s important)”

David: “me as art critic”

David’s 2014 tweets:
Roy Bhaskar is so nice. I asked how he can be so jolly despite his medical problems. Said: “I’m just so happy I get to see friends like you”
I wondered how can Bhaskar be so philosophical about his illness, debts, poverty… Then realized: oh right. He’s a philosopher.
Very sad news: Roy Bhaskar died of heart-failure yesterday. A lovely person and a cherished friend.
It occurs to me if Russell Brand were a philosopher he’d be Roy Bhaskar, & if Roy had been a comedian he’d be Brand
