Publishing “Losering” has brought me into contact with some pretty hardcore super-fans from Ryan’s world, which hasn’t been as fraught as I’d feared it might be (at least not yet). So far, it’s been a pleasure, even when we disagree. One super-fan I’ve had no disagreements with is Jennifer John Bickel, who I met on last weekend’s Texas sojourn via Dean Dauphinais — she was one of the friends he bought along to both readings I did down there. At the San Antonio reading, Jennifer cited Ryan’s Love Is Hell as her favorite album of all time. And over dinner, as we discussed our mutual affection for the hilarious website cakewrecks.com, it emerged that she’s enough of a fan to have made a cake for Ryan and the Cardinals back in 2009. Check out her handiwork below, which looks both delicious and too pretty to eat…

Love this post! I want to make him a Roosevelt Pie next time he comes to Philly. i actually found a recipe for one on the web. Though in an interview when asked what a Roosevelt pie was he said he made it up, but there ARE Roosevelt pies out there. Wasn’t easy but i found a recipe!
I so agree with our wonderful cake-maker fan. Love is Hell is one of his best. Love the dark narcotic paranoid vibe it sustains throughout, except for the cleansing (Norfolk waterfall after all) sorbet type break of English Girls (most refreshing!). And what exactly happened in the car that night? How many times I’ve asked myself that question….
