Canadian Writers Read: Video Archive

Just got an email from a.rawlings pointing out this incredible site that Emily Carr School of Art & Design, in Vancouver, is compiling. What a great resource. Hear Gail Scott read from My Paris, but also hear Margaret Christakos, Rita Wong, Larissa Lai, Marie Annharte Baker, Wayde Compton and others…

Musings on Beckett

Friends and fans muse on Beckett and his impact…and since there is never enough Beckett, or about or by Beckett, I include said link here for your perusal.

Tony Oursler @ Metro Pictures

Wow. Great idea. I’ve seen variations on this theme before: images projected onto strange objects. In this case however, both the images and objects were more pleasing than usual. There was a strand of Lori Anderson here, in the voice over text, and in the layers of moving images. One projector hitting a corner of...

Go Sweden, Go British Columbia

The Inflatable Museum

What doesn’t Kiss Machine get up to? Swashbuckling girl pirates and general mayhem seem the order of the day. And who doesn’t love a girl pirate? What the Hound needs right about now is a good sword to cut through the snare of deadlines she is entangled in. Every day she is thinking, any day...

Carla Harryman & Heather Fuller

This was a great reading. The first time I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Carla Harryman after all these years of reading her. And worth the wait. She read from Baby, among other things. What fabulous word pairings. Surprising conjunctions and energy, full on, chiseled energy and lines like: “an open box invites the shadow...
