Just Can’t Get Enough?

How about a little more of the Prince? Not only do I love this song, “Strange Form of Life”, I also love the video. This is one for listening and watching, maybe ten times, and then responding with a poem that you will send to Will Oldham. Or else, go on a long car ride…

Another One Bites the Dust

That is, another fellow city dweller, poet and Tarpaulin Sky publisher, Christian Peet, jumped the ship of Brooklyn long before I did for gorgeous Vermont and has recently taken up the rickshaw as a means of fighting big oil and making a nickel here and there for supplies. A note from his site, “My best…

The Fight for Civil Rights

Governor Patterson opened a phone line to determine how much support there is for his directive to recognize all legal same-sex marriages from other states and countries. I just called and it’s really easy and it took under 5 seconds. You call 518.474.8390 and say you support the governor’s directive. The lady who answers the…

When Women Criticize …

When women criticize … I’ve been called hysterical and told to reign in my anger, get control, etc. Anger is not a legitimate emotion when it comes to debate, even if it isn’t detectable. Being passionate about a topic renders one hysterical, or so it would seem when the person debating doesn’t want to actually…

Feminist Resurgence?!

Since Ms. Clinton began her campaign, there certainly has been a public resurgence in misogyny, starting with my long-lost father sending me Hillary Clinton jokes via email. No call on my birthday or Christmas, but I warrant jokes in which a presidential candidate ends up dead, raped, and mocked? That’s emotionally-charged action from a man…

Not One, But a Lovely Two!

Brandi Homan reviews I’M THE MAN WHO LOVES YOU in The Cutbank Review today (an excerpt): Even though King does something that there should be more of in contemporary poetry—addresses the sociopolitical aspects of life in the 21st century head on—I’m The Man Who Loves You accomplishes much more. It is disjointed, beautifully grotesque, and…

Bitches

Who doesn’t love a good cat fight? Nails and hair flying, women on their knees, beating each other mercilessly, ripping out earrings, bleeding scratches, possible nudity — BUT. We intellectuals are above all that, right? Liberal men and liberal women use their brains and don’t succumb to such debased antics tinged with “lower class” heart-on-the-sleeve…

Birthing…

I forgot about this kick-ass picture Jennifer Firestone and I posed for some year or so ago (Well, mostly she’s kick ass and daring while I ride her coattails here!). That is, I forgot until I got word of her new book, HOLIDAY. Then, I thought that celebrating this book would also be a means…

Pronouncing “Louis”

My genius friend and jazz scholar, among other things, Michael Steinman, first taught me that “Louie” was a publicly-assigned nickname and that the legend actually went by LouiS. I’m guessing other scholars will catch up. And now Mr. Steinman has a blog by which he will inform us all of the happenings in New York…

This blog has received regular hits for The Knife’s “Pass This On” ever since I posted it at the end of May 2007. Since then, the video was removed by Youtube or the subscriber who posted it. Today, I found it elsewhere on the site (w/ an annoying “Z” in the upper corner) and posted…
