I Have Five Things in My Knapsack
I finally got a chance to read Dusie 5, which has been up & at 'em for about a week now. So much rockin' poetry. I've been in heaven these past two weeks, a heaven that involves a lot of looking at great poems in new issues of journals.
The latest issue of Pleiades (who need to update their webpage) has a killer opening poem that you should check out: “Landscape with Suicides” by John Gallaher.
The new Caetano Veloso record, Ce, is scrumptious. For more on Veloso, visit the houseboat-sitter. Also, Labyrinth Books has very affordable copies of his lovely memoir of the tropicalia movement.
The Exploding Star Orchestra record is a very nice record but will neither bedevil nor bedazzle you. And yet it is good for the ears & other such items.
The Candian black metal band Wold's new album Screech Owl is a disturbing & somewhat disgusting delight.
