Twitter Sensation @badbanana Readies First Book
If you know Tim Siedell’s work, chances are you’re one of the 400,000+ followers of his hilarious Twitter account, @badbanana. Siedell, the mild-mannered creative director of a brand communications studio in Nebraska (if that was your job title, wouldn’t you crack wise on the internet too?) uses the account to regularly dispense absurd, Jack Handey-esque nuggets, like this one from earlier today: “I took the Special K cereal challenge. I didn’t lose weight, but I did turn into a woman.”
Now, StoryPeople Press is releasing 80 pages of Siedell’s humorous musings alongside crude but charming sketches from artist Brian Andreas. Judging by the title, Marching Bands Are Just Homeless Orchestras: Half-Empty Thoughts Volume 1, it’s the first of hopefully many books from Siedell. It’s $18.95 and you can preview a few pages here.
