Reading in Seattle, Sat Nov 10: Carletta Wilson & Jim Andrews


My friend Joe Keppler has a show up of steel sculpture in Seattle, so I'm
going south to see the show. He's a terrific poet, sculptor, sound artist,
photographer, and performer. His steel sculptures are very interesting and
often provocatively literary. Not concrete but steel. Meeting Joe back in
the 80's was a turning point in my life; Joe and some other artists in
Seattle I met back then have a strong intermedial, polyartistic side to
their literary work that makes Seattle a special place of literary
synthesis.

On Saturday Nov 10 I'll be doing a reading, as will Carletta Wilson, at
Joe's show of steel sculpture. I hope you can make it.

lovesick zombies


i like it too. it's great to see way out there poetry way out there on the
net eluding the forces of dullness. alas, like christina, i did not elude
the level 5 rude zoo thingies. possibly because large numbers intervened to
obscure my bazoom and the harrying, intermittent penises.

Networkism and Heroism


Don't be too hard on yourself and the rest of humanity, Kandinskij.

According to cosmologists, the universe is about 15 billion years old. Earth
is around 4.5 billion years old according to geologists. Life has existed on
Earth for about 3.5 billion years according to biologists.

Life on Earth is, then, only one order of magnitude younger than the
universe itself. Our own existence is but a blip in time, but we inherit
bodies and natures that are practiced in 3.5 billion years of evolution on
this planet. We are, at most, but one order of magnitude less evolved than
anything else in the universe.

So, although we have a long way to go simply to survive the next 200 years
(and our own nature), we have come so very far and are, truly, sentient
beings.

Can you get any of this working on your machine? I couldn't. Using what plugin, if so? Have a URL for that plugin?

It seems totally abandoned.

ja?
