If you happen to be in Atlanta this Sunday September 7, I'm hosting a reading at WonderRoot on Memorial, with reading by Zach Plague (author of 'boring boring boring boring boring boring boring' new from Featherproof), Todd Dills (who edits 2nd Hand and wrote 'Sons of the Rapture' also from Featherproof), plus I'll be reading something from the new No Colony issue and selling them). In the midst of that will be two bands, one I used to be in Sleep Therapy and an awesome weird ambient joint called Lyonnais, it bodes to be a fun shit, it starts at 8:00 pm or so, please come, please fly from your locale, I will lick your face, have a baby with you (dinnerstyle), punch a goggle in the neck, yes.
BTW, if you haven't check out Zach's boring book yet, you really should. It's really one of the best looking books I've seen in a while, with all kind of weird font stuff and wild paper designs occuring, it clearly took a ton of typographic work and makes the text electric and exciting, I am reading it now and really getting kicks out of Zach's way of spinning, I've not seen much of anything like this before: it is something to hold in yr hands.
Also reading right now: Deb Olin Unferth's VACATION, man it is excellent. It's broken into a ton of little wild graphs and narrative windings, people following people following people: it is kind of perfect to read right now and I suggest you find one. Derek White was right a lot to compare it to Auster's NEW YORK TRILOGY, in that it has that weird enrobed air about it, but it also has those compacting Unferth sentences that leave you thinking after each because of how they turn. Excellence. Buy.
Shipped some more NO COLONYs out today: they are on de way. Kickin it.
Got my first blurb for EVER this weekend, from one of my absolute fiction idols, it made me giddy and eyes sweaty, it made me want to buy my own book. Doinks.
Other things becoming large.
Something is poking out inside my scrotum, I feel happier than yesterday
Matt Bell said nice things about my Ninth Letter story, Matt has an excerpt from his novel coming out in the next Lamination Colony (which I am about to begin building) which will claw you on the knee in a way that bleeds until you get to read the rest of the novel when it is released upon the public, you will go Oh
Man the new Of Montreal record sucks, I used to really like those guys, the new record is hyper-sexual in an off-putting way, he talks too much silly, I have to throw it out the window, I should have never taken cLOUDEAD's 'Ten' out of my cd player, I just need a two disc changer with that and 'Remain in Light,' I wish that wasn't a title already I would use it, it doesn't feel like I title one could steal
The story I am writing right now about a baby leaking to fill a house will the last story I write about bad things happening to babies, at least for a minute, what got me started on that?
I watched a thing about Jeffrey Dahmer the other day, it was good, I don't know
Here's a good interview with Sam Pink

Everything that is shit happens at once then everything that is good happens at once and in between those there's just a lot of waiting
