Tiny Noteworthies …



I’ll be hitting the big 3-0 this Thursday, August 3rd — Ed Berrigan’s day is also on the 3rd, and Erica Kaufman’s is August 8th. Yay? Yay!

View recent photos from the Kaufman, Huth, Vassilakis MiPOesias reading here (as well as some photos from Pete’s Candy Store, the next night).

Most pleasurable: Tim Peterson plays Tarzan in the new issue of Jacket. Clever, clever, monkey man! Tarzan crack Jane up. Ugh.

Over there at MiPOesias, peek in on some seriously stellar new work by Peter Jay Shippy, Lucille Gang Shulklapper, Jill Alexander Essbaum, Anne Boyer, Anny Ballardini, Christopher Salerno, Noah Eli Gordon, John Sakkis, and Meghan Punschke!


With the ongoing worsening warring news and the power outages and the heat waves and the … well, how does one keep one’s self afloat? Advice?

    Happy Pre-Birthday. For a BIG one like 3-0 you need a whole week to celebrate anyway.

    The bio and blog are diverging (or is that my typo?)! What is anyone to ever believe?

    Happy, happy birthday! Don’t ever forget that I knew you when….! It’s good your summer classes are finished so that you can really celebrate the big one – whether it ends in 0 or 5!?!

    Love, Carolyn and Don, too

    August 4th, 2006 at 6:20 pm eWhat the? 3-0? N-O-T. But happy birthday anyway. didn’t think you had the age “issue” but i don’t blame you as now you are getting closer to 4-0 and away from 3-0. Hope your birthday was fun. I celebrated it quietly by myself. )
