It's on the ground, and working.
Bloof is on top of their game, and still visiting for a reading in April. Look like a change of venue though, mostly because they're so hot, we'll need everything we can find on tap to keep ourselves cool.
Writing on a clean desk is the way to be. I highly recommend.
Do you need a drummer in LA? He's over here. I got a call last night from him and my kid sis. Now she knows a whole bunch of silly things I did in high school.
Meanwhile, I switched up the Artists and Writers on the side bars here on the blog. I figured, most of you getting here are getting here by way of writing, and probably know a decent amount of the writers I'm linking to anyway. So, in the interest of helping you get to know people who work in different media (paint, beats, ink-in-skin, etc), those folks are now a little higher on the list. But I love them all equally.
I"ll see you Thursday at the Fixx:
Or go see Ada and others in NYC on Friday:
February 29th – Ada Limon & Melissa Koosmann & Rebecca Gopoian & Lisa Sewell
February 29, 2008, 7 pm
Pete's Candy Store, 709 Lorimer Street, Brooklyn, NY
Ada Limón's first book, lucky wreck, was the winner of the Autumn House Poetry Prize. Her second book, This Big Fake World, was the winner of the Pearl Poetry Prize. She is at work on a third book dealing mainly with rivers, sharks, and how to live in the world.
Melissa Koosmann is a graduate of the University of Arizona MFA program in poetry. Her poems have appeared in The Indiana Review, Diagram, Coconut, and other journals.
Rebecca Gopoian's poems have appeared in EOAGH, elimae, the DenverQuarterly, The Cupboard, Tarpaulin Sky, Margie, and others. Her articles, reviews and collaborative comics have appeared in The New York Times, Interfaithfamily.com and LitVert. She lives in Queens with her husband, cartoonist David Heatley, and their two children, Maya and Samuel.
Oh, and pop's pretty excited about an MG in a new movie. It looks kinda cool though. The car. Not necessarily the movie (but I haven't watched the trailer yet).
