Today we’re putting together a pitch for our kickstarter video (filming next week at the Phoenicia Diner!).
Finding the right words about a project that is so meaningful to us and has affected so many people is turning out to be harder than we thought.
Post a comment here saying why the Diner Porn project is important to you or how it has affected you and we’ll read the best comments in the video!
tl;dr: How does our Diner Porn project affect your life?
Padraic and I recently went on vacation to The Catskills, a trip that was in part inspired by Tom Smith and Alecia Eberhardt, the amazing duo behind DinerPorn. We ended up at the Phoenicia Diner twice because of them, and over our delicious breakfasts and lunches there, we were inspired to think outside of the box, to consider a life outside of the ones we’ve always known. Now we make lists, we make plans, and we make coffee, all the while remembering how it felt to look out the front window of the Phoenicia Diner and know this world is huge - and within our reach.

"I hope you don’t have friends who recommend Ayn Rand to you. The fiction of Ayn Rand is as low as you can get re fiction. I hope you picked it up off the floor of the subway and threw it in the nearest garbage pail. She makes Mickey Spillane look like Dostoevsky."

Maybe the best literary burn ever. Does anyone know of any other good author to author burns though?
I love Flannery O’Connor, and I detest Ayn Rand (almost as much as I detest Hemingway).
