Ripping or riffing off the idea of Issue 1 (are the editors of Issue 1 going to sue?), Erika Staiti (not that Erika) has put together Issue 2, a log of all the blog and listserv comments that came right after Issue 1.
1. I am racking up publication credits this year without doing shit!
2. It’ll be easier for all of us who are going to take full advantage of Issue 1 to write a paper on appropriation in contemporary poetry for our academic courses, because all the commentary is in one place!
Score! Now if one of Kenny G‘s students would just write a program that would write that academic paper for me, perhaps something like this. (refresh. refresh.) (Oh, and if they could rehab the structure of modern academia that would be cool too. Like, so we would be allowed to write papers about such things in the first place.)
