Close friend, co-editor of Tammy, and poet Thomas Cook and I will be giving a reading with the poet Aidan Thompson this Friday night in Albany, NY. Thomas and I have been collaborating for a couple years now, so we plan on doing both solo and collaborative readings. We will be reading from what we entitle Monster: a Glottochronology. I recently made a short film of us in the act of writing, which is accompanied by the audio of the writing we did during the video. Check it out here
Snow hit nicely in Manhattan yesterday, only to melt today as the high spring tease unleashed its glance. I think that I have no desire to watch the Academy Awards this year. This isn’t to say that there weren’t great performances, nor that the glam isn’t delightfully indulgent, but that I really have no attachment to the films I believe will take home the troph, those being Avatar, District 9, and a few others. Additionally, last year was like watching the b-side DVD celebration footage of Slumdog Millionaire.
