Exhibit 15.15

Two Things:

* I have unanswered questions about the movie Baghead. I also don't want to give anything away, so if you care and haven't seen it--and I'm not saying you should though maybe you should. Or not. It's okay, wildly uneven, should have been better--just don't highlight this text below and you can remain spoiler free. If you have seen it, let me know what you think. If you haven't seen it and don't care, you still shouldn't read the question but should instead imagine your own baghead movie which you will then want to talk about authoritatively as if it's the real baghead movie, making sure to accuse those who try to correct you of being sexist.

So...

Who was wearing the bag when the baghead enters Michelle's room? It's established that it's not the filmmaker guy since he's not there yet. The woman says it wasn't her and since she's not a very good actress, I'm inclined to believe her. Now it could have been Matt (the dude Michelle was expecting), but then why would he just show up and leave? It also could have been the other dude who would have had a reason to leave (he was disappointed the girl was expecting Matt) but not a reason to put on Matt's clothes. So, since the filmmakers decided to make their movie less interesting by being very literal, what's the explanation for this? Maybe I'm over thinking it, but every other appearance by the baghead gets painstakingly explained. I think this only bothers me because it leads to the movie's funniest line, "A baghead didn't see you naked!" Clearly, like the filmmakers, I'm captivated by the idea of a baghead. Also, it's hard to type in white. I probably should have waited until I was done typing and then switched the font color. Next time.

* This is far less important than baghead-related matters, but it's been brought to my attention that my tiny chapbook thing My Untimely Death from Subito Press has more or less sold out. The three copies left at Amazon here are apparently the last of the first print run. I only mention it because I'm relieved that I am no longer going to be responsible for an unsold box of books that a Boulder janitor would have to throw away in 2015. Unfortunately, I'm told the intention is to print more, but there is some question as to when. Keep your fingers crossed that funding falls through, future Boulder janitors.

I suppose I also mention it because I still have 10-15 and would give a copy to anyone who wants one. I have done a remarkably poor job of distributing my copies. Please take one.

I just want to buy one from you.
Whats your address and selling price?
Please note, I will be sending a check so you can be sure to end the price in a sweet, and never-not-funny 69 cents.

(when did keyboards kick the 'cent' sign key?)

I thought I had a limited-printing thus invaluable book. I guess not. I might just take it out of the sealed plastic and let the sun curl the pages. What do you think of that?
Soooo ... will you sign my copy?
