Might want to have a look at Silliman's blog. Some miserly fellow called Franz Wright has been poo-pooing the comments box. Of course, one should take Silliman with a pinch of salt, but that's not to say he's not valuable. I find myself irritated only 60% of the time at his blog - less so since the wellbutrin kicked in. - Hi Ron. Coming up in the next week: critique and praise of Brian Kim Stefans' Fashionable Noise. Then a review of Factorial 4. Plus other stuff. Finally, my birthday today! Had Indian buffet for lunch (ok for Iowa City standards, but prefer to cook my own), then a very heavy bitter dark chocolate cake with dark roast Columbian coffee (organic/fair trade=tastes much better than starbucks crap) at home after dinner. - Also got to watch a good deal of the Colts/ Seahawks game... I hate this time of the season, no one is really trying anymore. Presents: Collected Poems of Frank O'hara Under Three Flags: Anarchism and the Anti-Colonial Imagination (Benedict Anderson's latest book) Species of Spaces and other Pieces - Perec Fox and His Friends - Fassbinder (DVD - Fantastic movie, btw) Stay tuned.
