Overheard quote of the week

What do you mean I have the wrong kind of ant farm?

Awesome woman of the week

The Story of My Accident is Ours by Rachel Levitsky now up on Conjunctions. Levitsky is of course the founder of the belladonna reading series which has hosted very close to 100 kick-ass women in NYC and which I have been very happy to be a part of for the last few years. Under the...

Issue Number Two2006-2007ed. Elizabeth Treadwell Okay, I’ve been wanting to post about this but really, I still feel I haven’t had enough time to adequately describe the excellence of this project. My first reaction was Yes, oh Yes! Here’s a fabulous example of what one might accomplish in lieu of blogging. At just over 200...

Elizabeth Bachinsky

You can see and hear Bachinsky read from Curio, published this year with Bookthug. One of the poems she reads is her anagram poem of TS Eliot’s “The Wasteland” titled “Lead the Wants”…

buy nothing day and making meaning

Today is Buy Nothing Day, an annual event and so far I think not one that has made any major mark on our society. Adbusters is amazing. But in a sense it is preaching to the converted. Particularly since those of us who are even aware of it are usually folks who are already fairly...

a real poet

Phew, thought I better get a real poet on here…we were getting a little out there of late, no? Cyberpoets and women… well, meanwhile the poetry mantle gets passed on as most of the power in our society does, from man to man. Here’s Muldoon to bring us back to tradition.

Bigger issues on the day of giving thanks

Part of the reason I am wrapping up Lemon Hound is towfold: one a commitment to my own work, and by that I mean poetry and book projects, but also a desire to turn my attention to some of the larger issues in our world. Issues such as the environment, our air and water, over-development...

winding down

After much consideration, I’ve finally chosen a date to pull the plug on this adventure. Lemon Hound will officially end along with this turbulent year. Hopefully I’ll be able write at least mini-reviews of all those books I have stacked by my ugly orange chair. What’s next? Indeed. What’s next.

nouvelle vague…

a little morning music…and while you’re on coolhunting check out the latest in Brooklyn edginess from Bushwick. Bap took place this summer. Thanks Zzee…

cyberwomen poets, a post in progress

Quickly, quickly, name all the cyberwomen poets you know… Exactly. Well, Stephanie Strickland comes to mind, yes, Stephanie Strickland…and…and…well? Well, here are some ideas for you. Check out Betty Nkomo (a wow) by Young-Hae Chang at poems that go, and then born magazine…and then over at logolalia…thanks to mairead for those links…I can’t help but...

apostrophe

Hi all, I’ve posted on apostrophe by Bill Kennedy and Darren Wershler-Henry before, but have you seen the apostrophe movie? You can find an excerpt here on the Boston Review, and a review here…

Angela Carr

Does the line last longerthan the point at which you wanted me?After a time.Am I fragile at this point you wanting me?Am I lasting at this point?Am I coming at this point and is it lasting?Am I nettles?Are you burning in this point?Am I centered in your beauty and is it cold and are we...

If y’all didn’t believe me that Kate Greenstreet’s a great reader, you can hear for yourself. Kate, Janet at MiPo Reading Series.

good lord! oceans, greycup and ginsberg

Thanks to Jordan for the link to this horror. Recycle, recycle, recycle…but that’s just the tip of the wasteberg: more ocean horrors in this week’s New Yorker, but only the print edition. All this pales next to previous headlines announcing the end of fish within the next 50 years…ocean fish in any case. Meanwhile Ginsberg...

Kate Greenstreet

Kate Greenstreet’s reading on Thursday night was a breath of fresh air. Yes, the Hound finally made up to Kelly Writers House on the Penn campus, 3508 Locust Walk, for the Emergency Reading Series. Featuring Kate along with Jason Zuzga and Noah Eli Gordon. Gordon’s assaultive approach to reading is intense, energetic, almost compulsive and...

New Jersey as an Impossible Object

Joe Milutis has an intriguing project in the works, an explication (a multiple rendering…) of William Carlos William’s long poem, Paterson. Aside from the obvious, and yes, intriguing connection between Robert Smithson’s work and William Carlos Williams work which is explored here, there is a kind of sonic exploration of the implications of the Williams...

Caroline Bergvall reading at Haverford and Shanna’s blog

Bergvall read the 4 Shorter Chaucer Tales tonight, along with More Pets, and Gong. The Chaucer pieces are a “must hear.” And over at Shanna’s place the question of female role models and literary continues…

Music turns my head

Now and then I remember one of my earlier desires, which was to write for Rolling Stone Magazine and take photos of women like Chrissie Hynde and Annie Lennox… Lately CBC’s Radio 3 Podcast has been introducing me to a host of Canadian bands (see #76 Tintin in the Land of the Podcast) that make...

New poems!

Post Lemon Hound poems up on MiPOesias thank you very much. For some reason I don’t have many poems online so this is fun, and new work, well that’s always fun.

ouch, wow, zowee

Okay, now I get why everyone is talking about Battlestar Galactica…I have some catching up to do. And I only discovered this because I was looking to post a link to Martha Wainwright, who is awesome and kicks ass… I found this video which is wacky and well, confusing, but you get to hear Martha......

foulipo and drunken boat #8

In my round-up of journals I forgot to mention the new issue of Drunken Boat, which contains a folio of Canadian writing I edited. It’s a slim feature with many ghostly contributors whose work you will find on this blog either to come, or in the archives, or on the links when I can figure...
