What You’ll Get When You Subscribe to WOODRUFF
“The best audience is intelligent, well-educated and a little drunk.” —Alben W. Barkley
Free newsletters sent straight into your email inbox. No more hunting for websites or trawling social media for something intelligent.
Topics include riffs on popular culture as viewed through the lens of astrology, psychology, dreams, and semiotics (the study of signs and symbols). Picture a humanities bacchanalia as unleashed by Linda Goodman.
Because I’m gay I will also write about gay things like gay sex, erotica, and romance.
There are special perks and surprises for folks who become paid subscribers to WOODRUFF, and my grandfather Friedrich Nietzsche will detail what those are below.
I’m glad you’re here! This will be fun.

About Frederick Woodruff
“If you don't have a nasty obituary you probably didn't matter.” —Freeman Dyson
I’ve been on the Internet and social media so long I can’t read anything that involves a person telling another person about himself. And yet here we are.
So, I’m proof that whatever you’re obsessed with in childhood is a good indicator of where you’re headed vocationally as an adult. In the third grade, I pestered my dad to get me a typewriter, and then the bastard—because he loved antiques—brought home an ancient Underwood (that’s it below) for me to learn on. Despite weighing 400 pounds and requiring the strength of an ape to press down on its keys I taught myself how to type. And write. Venus is in Gemini in my chart, so it was fun.
Words I’ve written have appeared in Salon, Print, The Advocate, GARAGE, The Seattle Weekly, The Honolulu Weekly, Unzipped, Cybersocket, American Astrology, and Horoscope.
Books I’ve written for publishers: Secrets of a Telephone Psychic and Skywriter: Notes on Modern Astrology
Books I’m writing now. Non-fiction: The Mindfuck: Better Living Through Not Knowing (slated for 2022) and erotic fiction: Peter (slated for 2023)
Teleplays I’ve written with Keith Bacon: Revelations
The house I occupy is on a small strange island in Puget Sound.
