i have a ceramic giraffe fellating an invisible dick on my tv stand no shit it would make a killer tattoo

god am i inside the internet
god are you inside the internet


also now No Colony's website got updated, it has info about the new issue, it has an excerpt from the issue in the form of Sean Kilpatrick's story HUBBY, which really by now I have read 8-22 times, Sean is doing new things with words

there are also two previously unpublished and really cool pieces by Corey Zeller and Patrick Leonard, I really like the pieces on the site, please continue to buy issues, we love your knee

Sean Kilpatrick and I are slowly rewriting NAKED LUNCH together, for serious, wait till you see it, Sean is my abuse brother, something is alive inside him, he is eating the toothpaste rotting in my colon

i got a review copy of Lily Hoang's forthcoming book from Fairy Tale Review Press, it is called CHANGING, i literally when i took it out of the envelope said, Fuckin wow, it is a beautiful beautiful book, the style of the interior is like a puzzle, wait till you see this thing, Lily is the shit, I will have a review and more words about the book later, but Joyelle McSweeney's blurb on the back says a lot: "This is an impossible thing, a dream object." it really is

my review of Norman Lock's ebook GRIM TALES is in the Oct issue of the Believer, I mentioned this on HTML Giant, it seems this issue is a semi-Lish themed issue, it has a Diane Williams interview by Kevin Sampsell that I am excited to read, it has pieces with Will Eno and David Ohle, some other

you can read my whole review online the Believer site

a corresponding interview I did with Mr. Lock will be on Hobart before year's end, Norman Lock talks about his work with a pointed intelligence he is a wise man, and wow.

Derek sent me a potential cover for EVER, I cried a little, Derek is too good for me to say anything else

according to a mention in this piece on Michael Kimball's amazing DEAR EVERYBODY, i am a powerhouse international literary agent who represents Nobel winners, that is good to learn, i am not seeking unsolicited submissions because I am sort of a cunt, also Michael Kimball is Das Kapital, what more could I need

the current background on my laptop is a house on fire from a Tarkovsky film, before that it was a photo of a Chihuahua standing on hamburgers, i miss my dog, i want to be my dog and/or this dog

Hello Blake Butler,

Emerick Pond said...

Hmm, why didn't that work? I'll try breaking up the link into small parts this time:

Emerick Pond said...

Dear Blake Butler,

I wrote a nice long letter to you on my blog today, Blake Butler. Did you see it, Blake Butler?

I am Blake Butler!

Leave me alone, Blake Butler, for the love of god (Blake Butler said).

Okay, Blake Butler.

Blake Butler.

From THE SACRIFICE? Holy shit that movie's amazing. I need to watch it again.

All those spaces between your blog posts kind of make me dizzy and want to throw up in a good way.

Not only are you a powerhouse agent, but you also handle the estate of Dylan Thomas?

hilarious article

that picture sums up a lot of things about life at the moment. i think obama and mccain should use it for camapign banners. perhaps wall street should adopt it too.

its so absurd it just seems right.


barry, yessa

brandon, i agree
