The print version of Pop Serial #3 is taking forever to come out. Omar De Col has taken over layout duties.
Omar started a video series recently.
You can see him smoking cigarettes and such.
"im bent man..im bent...wouldnt have it any other way"
"my wife says im psychotic""the art has to come from a weird place... i prefer being a little odd, eccentric..if you dont have a little diversity in your life...how the fuck are ya gonna play the blues"
Feel like this was a boring-ass week. Nothing much happened online. I want to eradicate boredom on- and offline, I said in a gchat to Omar. I want to produce more things. I want people I like to produce more things. Books. Also essays. Web projects. Ebooks that maybe you would devote more than 5 minutes to or something. I don't know.
Any ideas, people?
If I ever start another thing after Pop Serial, or alongside Pop Serial, I want to call it Death Jam. That's the name I came up with, Death Jam.
Here is a paragraph I wrote today at work:
"The Barclays have Central Air, satellite television (with all the soccer games and Mystery Science Theater 3000 reruns), leather furniture, and a big house with a servant staircase next to the grand wooden carpeted one. Owing to they live across the street from me and I'm always welcome (Mrs. Barclay says this whenever I stay for dinner), I visit all the time. Well and also, Will Barclay is my friend."
I read, and some say I pondered, this essay: "The Future of Memory."
Socrates Adams and Chris Killen will be in Pop Serial #4. They are nice gents and above-average lawn bowlers.
My friend James Tadd Adcox has a book out. He is going on a Midwestern book tour soon I think.
The wonderful Richard Chiem has a book coming out soon from Scrambler Books. It has received what can only be described as blurbs from Dennis Cooper, Blake Butler, and Kate Zambreno. I have read most of it and my blurb would be: "Richard Chiem is an inimitable stylist...like a Wong Kar-Wai of prose."
Heiko Julien is a swell-ass guy. I met him. He enjoys hugging things. I liked his first ebook/novel, am i cool. He recently sent me his second ebook/novel. It is called I Am Ready to Die a Violent Death. Look for it, on the interwebs..
