The Locust - AOTKPTA

I can't get enough of this video.


I'm looking forward to the DVD release party and screening for Arab on Radar on the 18th of September. Batwings will be playing live, with dj sets by members of The Locust.

I'm currently listening to Lila Downs' "La Cama de Piedra," and I must say, reader, it feels like it's raining in my chest.

Today I saw two new editions of Kenneth Patchen's work, both from New Directions. I met a guy once named Patchen. Don't tell me, I said. My mother loved his work, he said. Come here, you, c'mon and gimme a hug, I said.

New Pistola is up and running.
The Chargers got burned today. There were two lousy calls in the afternoon, two lousy calls!

Hungry for Hamsun

Politics vs. Aesthetics. I'd take this further and say that [Hamsun's] the father of postmodern literature as well.

All I have to say is that Hunger, Pan and Growth of the Soil are among my favorites. The first two, perfect fits for the back pocket.

R. Crumb to hit museum. I would give anything (I've always hated this expression) to listen to his old record collection for a day.
