From back cover of print edition: If you're looking for glass-half-full affirmations, you're in luck. The bookstore or library is half full of that kind of crap. What you're holding here is a collection of quips and observations with a refreshingly gloomy, sometimes twisted, always funny take on life. Or lack thereof.

With illustrations by renowned artist Brian Andreas, this book is a glimpse inside the humorously askew mind of a writer whose witticisms have been featured on NPR, printed onto t-shirts, performed on stage in Germany, and posted online at the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and New York Times. He's been named one of the top ten funniest people on Twitter by the likes of Maxim, MSNBC, and Mashable.

"Tim Siedell clearly has no life, but he's extremely funny while not having one." Rob Reiner; Actor, Director, Writer, Producer

Editorial Reviews

Ed Illig

Unlike the ever-flowing nature of Facebook and Twitter feeds, Marching Bands Are Just Homeless Orchestras brings Tim’s bursts of abbreviated wit, self-effacing observations and social commentary into a traditional book format — and turns them into a keepsake.

And who better than Tim Siedell, an icon himself in online social realms, to present us with a snapshot of a trend toward modern-day shortened writing forms he’s been instrumental in propelling.

Mark Peters

At some point, I think we've all asked ourselves, "When is the best time to start training a kitten to hold a knife?"

That question-written by Tim Siedell, a.k.a Twitter's badbanana - is one of the expertly crafted one-liners you can find in his new book Marching Bands Are Just Homeless Orchestras: Half-Empty Thoughts Vol 1. It's the funnest/funniest book I've picked up in donkey's years, and it's also pretty and shiny and full of cool illustrations by Brian Andreas.
