LAMINATION COLONY Spring 08

The new issue of LAMINATION COLONY is now up for Spring 08.

It contains new writing by Jason Bredle, Ian Davisson, Johannes Goransson, Jeremy James Thompson, Devin Bustin, Heather Anne Mullins, J.D. Mitchell-Lumsden, I. Fontana, Chris Killen, Bryan Coffelt, Ken Baumann, Matthew Savoca and Ryan Downey.

There are images, a video containing nudity, a song about Google, an epic-length poem about being tired, also things involving Iron Chef, Alec Baldwin and etc.

There is also a feature: DICK PALACE: which contains texts written somewhere and then channeled through Derek White, Heather Anne Mullins, Gene Morgan, Bradley Sands, Go-go Rasputin via Herman Melville, Josh Maday and then bumped in the ass by me. I might post more about these later. (If you sent an 'X' submission and don't see it here, please read the comments of this post.)

There is also a LAMINATION COLONY AUDIO SUPPOSITORY mixtape CD that you can download to your iTunes or what have you and listen to in audio enjoyment. The music is meant to reflect the issue somewhat, I think, a little. The mixtape contains 15 selected tracks. A download link is available on the site in one easy click.

Some images make take a smidge to load.

Do it up.

Please blog about this and/or tell your friends to spread maximum damage thank you.

If you blog about this I will send you something special sometime soon.

Justin Rands said...

Thanks for getting back to me. I appreciate it.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

thank you kendra.

justin, getting back to you about what?

BLAKE BUTLER said...

ahhh.

justin, after your comment i went to my email and searched to see if i'd missed a mail from you somehow. there was nothing when i searched my inbox. then i went to spam and found your X submission. as well as from about 7 other people. i guess the X in the header made several emails subject to spam filtration. somehow i got 6 of them, and missed more than half.

really sorry to you justin, and to alicia pernell and krammer abrahams and anyone else who got swept away.

fuck.

the google song

Justin Rands said...

Blake. It's ok. Thank you for searching. Spam filters are great no matter what. Except for this case. I do appreciate the offer for the next issue. And I am being serious this time.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

justin, yeah spam filters mostly good, though it makes you wonder what all else goes missing.

you are on board for the next one for sure. it was a really good piece. it would have been fun to fuck up but i am glad it will be as is.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

i was wondering why i only got 6 things sent to destroy. ah.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

the google song is the champ.

Alicia said...

Through my teary eyes, I blogged about Lamination Colony. It looks really great.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

alicia, shit i feel bad........

BLAKE BUTLER said...

if anyone sees messed up shit because of their browser please comment with the kind of browser you use and what looks wrong.

the page looks best in firefox on a mac.

Alicia said...

I am using Firefox on a PC. The titles on the left side of the page look weird. Some of the text overlaps. Heh. I thought it was supposed to look that way.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

general fixes applied. refresh.

somehow a line got stuck on the end of bredle's words and i had to clear it off.

the website is trying to edit itself.

Alicia said...

Yes. It changed.

Ryan Downey said...

awesome issue blake.

i am glad another person named ryan liked the google song. ryan-solidarity.

again, this issue is fucking sweet.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

i have been singing that google shit all day long.

i have also gotten several emails praising it.

royalty checks n shit.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

& also thankyou

Ryan Downey said...

nice.

google is going to kill me in my sleep for that song.

it is going to send a team of highly trained ex-kgb agents to take me out.

google is ruthless and efficient.

KEN BAUMANN said...

i blogged about the new LC i'm a good soldier

Josh Maday said...

nice job all over, blake.

yes, ryan downey, the google song is the greatest thing since edible underwear and socks and mustaches.

good work everyone.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

throwingroses said...

Bradley Sands said...

Thanks. I like what you did with my thing.

Lamination Colony is kool!!!!

heather anne said...

I adore this: "dreamboat preteen with perfect tits, set to secure her midlife blubber."

I like what you did with the channeling. You are a great medium, I must say. Thank you.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

i am happy so many people are enjoying. thanks again everyone.

matthew said...

i thought the google song was funny, but i like the dick palace stuff more.
i think you should do that in every issue. like next issue, maybe alter images or something.
it can be lamination colony's "thing", besides being awesome.

Bradley Sands said...

It has vanished. You might already know this.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

this issue is editing and deleting itself.

fixed 4 now.
