John Hodgman: More Information Than You Require.

John Hodgman is known throughout galaxies far and wide for transcendent wit and bookish LOLs. You may know him from the Apple ads, the Daily Show hijinks, his blog, or his book, Areas of My Expertise (Amazon link), which begat the Internet Hobo Craze of The 21st Century.

What you may not yet know about him is this: he has a new book coming out October 21, 2008, titled More Information Than You Require (Amazon link).

The new compendium will include mole men. And, frankly, it's pretty sweet. We visited with him during a hotel hole-up at the Chateau Marmont, and interrupted his writing flow. He forgave us, and offered us a ham sandwich with some Soylent Green. Please to be watching.

(Ed. note: We aired a mole-man-centric cut of this visit late last year, but we're revisiting again to reveal more undiscovered Hodgmanic goodness. Stay tuned for all-new fun with this guy, planned soon.)

    Dear Mr. Hodgman: I like it when someone picking up on something crazy that you say and running with it (“Monticello has the same first two letters as moleman”) makes you smile genuinely, because it is those moments that convince me that you are, in fact, a human being.

    @ simon,
    in reference to xenis voice i believe the adjectives you were looking for are sultry, sensual, voluptuous or lush. might i interest you in a q-tip, liberally applied to the ear canal.
    @ mr hodgman,
    your supposition that the rabble at large is prepared for the mind expanding knowledge you bestow (or the ‘science’ that you may ‘drop’ to use a colloquialism) assumes much of the reader.
