Teenage Idiot Meditates and I'm Like, 'Margaret, Don't Fail Me Now' (Health, Mind & Body)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 26, 2011 08:13PM
Description: My observation is that some writing clutches at your throat—not your outer throat but your inner throat, the throat of the being within you—and it refuses to loosen its hold until you give birth to it in a physical format. I felt clutched by the throat and I had to write this, what I would consider my thoughts captured in a voice that is not my own. Not usually.
My First Attempt at Flarf Poetry (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 19, 2010 01:07PM
Description: This poem is my first attempt at the genre of flarf, which typically incorporates the use of Google search results and cut-up techniques in order to create the result of (in this case) poetry that is funny, aggressive, disturbing, and wild in its language and context.

My Pet Serial Killer is one of the most effective transgressive novels I have ever read. Rather than relying upon the same tired gimmicks that authors before him have used to present a transgression of societal norms, Seidlinger works against those g ...more

“After 100 years, films should be getting really complicated. The novel has been reborn about 400 times, but it's like cinema is stuck in the birth canal.”

“If Wagner lived today, he would probably work with film instead of music. He already knew back then that the Great Art Form would include a sort of fourth dimension; it was really film he was talking about.”

Bradley Thank you for adding me as a friend. =)

Dreamsbane of Tamalor by Bradley James Simpson


Christy Stewart Part of it is I update my 'read' books in chunks.

Another is that I've been reading a lot of short ebooks.


Christy Stewart 400? Bitch, please, I had like 900 people sign up!

And lucky me, one of the winners is one of those with 0 books and 0 friends...


Christy Stewart That's what GR told me!


Christy Stewart You won my book??? How crazy is that?!


Christy Stewart Thanks buddy


Christy Stewart Matt wrote: "Go to Lulu and search for some of the books/authors I've added over the past few days. I think that you would very much enjoy Peter Ganick, Jukka-Pekka Kervinen, Scott MacLeod, and the others."

Well tell me the 'and the others' so I can look them up.


Christy Stewart I don't know that anyone will agree with me but I would suggest Tempting Disaster over the starter kits. I thought it was a great anthology and might be of interest to you.


Rachel Happy? I rated almost all of my books, just for you! I'll have to review a few before I can make an appropriate rating...


Dominic Dartmouth?? INDEED! Hohoho!! =^-^=
