Sorry for the extremely lengthy post on your dashes but this is so important

Shaun King has been going to work on this since day 1, never once trying to parlay it into some shameful “vote Democrat” plea (looking at you, Antonio French), and always investigating the connections of racist corruption and oppression going on in St. Louis/Ferguson. So if you’re going to follow somebody re: Ferguson on Twitter….

Things that should be read closely and remembered.

On NPR a British man gave an amazing lecture to an audience about the history / current state of the news, about how it was developed, initially, as an explicit tool against power. That isn’t the role of the “news” anymore, obviously, but Shaun King and #Ferguson, are evidence that we can be an effective tool of power that the “news” can’t be anymore. Part of what the news is now, in its 24 hour corporately owned oscillations, said the British man on NPR, is a thing meant to confuse us to the point of dizzy helplessness. I nodded in the car as I drove home from Georgia, but I don’t feel helpless or dizzy when I read this twitter feed above.

Wim Delvoye:  Scarred Rock, ,

on artnet, Facebook

With the advancement of technology, delivering messages has never been this easy. All we do is create emails, text messages and even twitter posts, and it’s just a click away! Except for the Belgian artist who puts great effort in delivering such message, Wim Delvoye.

Delvoye, puts an iconic work of art by inscribing messages on mountains in a massive scale. Just a simple message, he puts a great effort of putting reminders beyond the ordinary. Instead of painting a canvas to put out his creativity, he sets out a statement by making an effort to connect with nature.

Come to think of it, he sets out a message to everyone by being aware that each significant human experience correlates with the forces of nature.

Shaun Gannon is selling one copy of a zine, the starting bid is 4 dollars
click here to buy it

this is the last copy of my chapbook “The Timeworn What; or, Some Kind of Vagueness”, besides maybe the copy that i gave my mom, if she didn’t throw it away or something. i wrote and printed it first in 2008. this copy is from the second printing that i did for a reading in 2009, where i gave them away with the bookmark (enclosed as a free gift to whoever is so nice as to buy this ; ) ), which is the very last of those bookmarks that i made to promote my ebook i had just finished, which is probably the first thing i wrote/published that i still think is good. Yes that includes this chapbook but whatever i’m no salesman

although this is ebay so i guess i should say more positive things about this chapbook. Okay

There are ten poems in it

well i guess that’s just a fact.

Maybe a couple ideas in it are good

i think that’s probably the most i can muster in support of myself. i mean this is old crap i was like 20-21 it’s too cutesy for me now. but whatever, it should be of no surprise that i can’t sell myself

but if you want to buy me, then the bidding starts at four dollars. i’ll even pay for your shipping if it’s in the continental americas. if you have any questions then you can message me. also, if you want to buy books, magic cards or comics then look at my profile. this is all because i’m moving, but also because i’m poor, so, thanks for reading all this i guess!

PS the cover and first page have some weird stain that looks like spaghetti sauce. i’ll sign the copy for you over it or something. Deal with it

Idle Information 030

I lived in a crappy townhouse complex owned by the university for a couple years when I was in undergrad. There was only one bathroom on the second floor, and when you sat on the toilet, if someone else sat or stood on their toilet in the apartment next door, our whole toilet would raise/lower by a centimeter or two - enough that you could visibly see it happen, not just feel it. Not sure why BSU bolted toilets to each other through walls, unless that’s the kind of thing they’re into.
