There is something happening

excerpt of one of my novellas in progress over at Metazen.

It starts with a mysterious snorting.

The horny toads are the suitors . . you just have to get past their horny exterior and then its clean sailings . .

Both highly recommended. I am hoping Gabby Gabby’s Airplane Food will be fab fab as well. Liked what I read at 3:AM and her videos and such:

 

Here are some of her poems in 3AM magazine:
Video poems and links and such over at her webpage:

Seeing connections between them. And the films of Miranda July. A shared aesthetic. Of course all very different artists, writers, poets  as well.

Very spare minimalism. Powerful for me emotionally because of the over-saturation and manipulation of emotions via advertising/media/film/realist novels etc.

A hyper-realism sometimes . . perhaps . .  and therefore surreal . . a new surrealism framed by current conditions of 21st century living. What does that mean? 21st century living? HA! Something I can quite articulate because there are too many variables. But also something there there.

A honest absurdity in their work? authentic? Can we use that word? Authentic?

I can’t connect to pure poetry pure art pure music. Maybe a little. But not much. There is a disconnect between how I experience and move in the world and pure anything. I have always been drawn to the impure and its beauties.

And cognitive behavioral therapy for all . . .
