OO#r9u89

fine tuning this novel is making me dizzy. near the end of turning in a draft. i think it is called The Black Gazebo.

in the editing and fine tuning it is gathering some kind of exponential gathering i had only guessed in knowing as make, it is funny to stare and sudden click after many peerings




read this past weekend in Ann Arbor for the kickoff of Great Lakes Great Times reading series with Brian Evenson and Joanna Howard. was very calm and nice and good, good crowd, felt exciting

the first night i had nachos. the second night Brian ordered nachos and i felt glad




i am reading Wayne Koestenbaum's biography of Andy Warhol, called Andy Warhol, which is really interesting. i didn't know Warhol had made an early adaptation of A Clockwork Orange where his worker Gerard plays Alex and is subjected to drugs, actual drugs, during the treatment, a torture scene of sorts. i don't know where if anywhere you can find this

oh, it's called Vinyl. it's on youtube. there. not that cool. don't watch it. just think of what you think it could have been.


last night I watched the movie Sugar, it's probably the closest thing I've seen to a film version of Ever, at least in parts, though there is murder in it. it's a woman locked in her apartment. it's worth seeing, some amazing tactile scenes



very nice review of Ever by Angela Stubbs at The Collagist, thank you Angela and Matt







listening to Acid in the Style of David Tudor a lot, especially while editing, it makes me feel itccccccccccccc

black gazebo is not northport, long island gazebo, among others, is it. i get this feeling you're writing the book I'm writing . . .

hehe, i dont think it is? it's a nonspecific outside-the-book gazebo structure

now i really wanna see your book! heh

Sweet. I was sure I'd just wasted years.

I will try to make the book materialize in your room tonight. Do you have a desk? An altar?

Failing magick, I'll just mail you a copy.

If I {ever} finish it.

"a nonspecific outside-the-book gazebo structure" :yes
