Another victory in the war against Catholicism’s sadistic goal of keeping the poor as powerless as possible.
Anyone wanna write a little chapbook called “SHE” or “RIFF” so I can use these for something? Books should be 4″x6″ or so.

– Thinking about buying shelving (the kind that you put in your closet). It’s pretty cheap at IKEA. It’s easy to put up and take down and, most importantly, transport. I seem to move a lot. I want more streamlined … Continue reading
How do I find out if a work is in the public domain, and if it isn’t, how do I find out who to contact for permissions?
Concrete poetry meets the MTV Generation. I’m interested in the font fetishism, the representation of arbor and rhizome, the soundtracks, the use (and non-use) of color. 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – … Continue reading
McGann, Jerome. The Point is to Change ItGordon, Noah Eli. A Fiddle Pulled from the Throat of a Sparrow Thanks S!

Sometimes PayPal has issues; I do not know how to fix them. This has been a problem with the Anthology and with Eco Quarry Bellwether. If you want to order something from Outside Voices and the PayPal links aren’t working, … Continue reading
Totally swiped this off Jen Tynes‘s blog, but for two good reasons: 1. many people I know are working in small formats, and 2. many people I know are working in a post-LangPo particle-ridden world. In other words, it seemed … Continue reading
pretty cool ties. Those of you who seem obsessed with meat might like this one. Or maybe you’d prefer squid. I like the gasmask and the raven.

Get your local library to buy OFC. (Libraries are generally happy to purchase things you request.) (Thank you thank you to those who already have!) Also, Northerners– someone know how to get in touch with Catriona Strang?

Kate Greenstreet interviews Linda Russo regarding her first book, MIRTH. Also, I did read the entire Concher and eat the chocolates. I commented on the pairings in the comments section here. The Concher is a pretty cool magazine as evidenced … Continue reading
Before ecopoetics, before Finlay, before Deleuze, before Fluxus, before Duchamp, before Cornell, before Audubon, there was Linnaeus (along with Tesla, one of my favorite scientists). (Like my connect-the-dots genealogy?)
In the South, it’s summer. I have an unnatural affection for gazpacho. Suggestions on how to make the best gazpacho? (Anyone in Buffalo who can obtain for me the recipe for gazpacho from Globe Market… I’ll be forever in your … Continue reading

I’m going stir-crazy today. I think I’ve changed clothes like six times. And we won’t even discuss how many times I’ve changed my earrings. I did, however, find sketchbooks that are exactly 4.75″ square. And I’m warming up to write … Continue reading
Not expecting to wake up to a picture of Creeley’s gravesite.
