Where is cornbread

Just received my first e-death threat





Just ate an individually wrapped Nutty Bar





Just punched my knee for not going to see Bun B, Mike Jones, and Paul Wall for free last night





Just posted an interview I conducted with Vanessa Place, author of LA MEDUSA from FC2





Just felt a weird surge of something growing on me





Just got my contributor copies of GUSTAF, which is rad and freaky looking, and has Kristina Born, Claire Donato, Sam Pink (actually, sorry, Sam's in issue 1), Tao Lin, Brandon Scott Gorrell, Kathryn Regina, Matthew Savoca, Audun Mortensen, Nathan Tyree, some other freaks: includes a reprint of my MLP chapbook 'IN THE RAPE YEAR OF THE GHETTO TODDLER THE HOUSES WILL AWAKEN' if you missed that, and also a short thing about glitches in iTunes from my 10 day novel, you should please buy a copy, it is a beautiful book and has a cover that looks like a ghost's face smeared in shit or peanut butter, I like these guys





Just looked at early proofs of Scorch Atlas innards, energized and !!!





Just shopped on an online book seller for 15-18 minutes and filled my cart with $54 worth of stuff then closed the browser window

Didn't actually do that just felt like saying it for some reason





Just wished I had CA Conrad's 'Book of Frank,' does anybody want to trade before I buy it





Just finished a draft of my first normal length short story in about 6 months, am pleased so far, it is about children exploding again, but different, my second collection is mostly going to be about children exploding, 'GLYPH ATLAS,' I wonder if I will ever find a publisher who likes children exploding





Just spent all night thinking too hard about certain magical possibilities, but forcing myself to retain the thinking to my unconscious, which I could feel all in my morning teeth, I will not think on them too hard





Just prayed a little in my mind in one second without actually praying





I should be quiet more

BLAKE BUTLER said...

they could have done better

sasha fletcher said...

A good day, for you. That was your FIRST death threat. Jesus, man. Quit being a people pleaser.

I just had an urge to eat nachos.

Bye.

Michael Goroff said...

what is "normal length"?

someone once told me 5-1/2 inches.

BLAKE BUTLER said...

thank you for keeping my vagueness in check.

normal i guess means it looks like a bunch of pages stuck together

as for dicks, my mom always told me 2.22 is just fine enough for any fine and respectable young lady with a head on her shoulders

Michael Goroff said...

I wish we were friends IRL and were discussing this IRL right now and could be drinking together and not just alone in my basement by myself.

Michael Goroff said...

My mama told me that some little boys don't even have penises at all, isn't that sad (her words not mine)?

Brandi Wells said...

BLAKE BUTLER said...

Brandi Wells said...

jereme said...

i slayed a dragon once.

Matt DeBenedictis said...

E-death threats are the jizzy jizz of weird waves of emotions.

I miss death threat letters. More work got put into them. The hand writing spoke more than the words. People don't even use "kill you and shit" fonts. Lazy species.

sasha fletcher said...

last night i got beers with conrad after my reading and we talked about the best songs to be stabbed to, and then the best songs to kill all of the amish ever to. and the ways to kill them.

Justin Sirois said...

CA Conrad slept over my house once and covered my living room with purple glitter.
Then we talked about "docking", or "dick in dick action".

He is all kinds of amazing.

sasha fletcher said...

conrad's amazing. true story.
