Parts 2 & 3 of Matt Hart’s POP Essay and Reading this Weekend for So and So Series!

Oh, goodness!  I should have let you know two weeks ago that part 2 of Matt Hart’s 4 part Poets off Poetry essay is up and ready for your reading pleasure.  You can check out part 2 here.  And guess what?  Part 3 is also up and ready for your reading pleasure.  I think this section may be my favorite of the bunch.  In the essay Matt talks about a Jawbreaker lyric which goes,  “I believe in desperate acts./The kind that make me look stupid.”  I told Matt that I totally understood the sentiment as my whole life is one big desperate act!  Haha-wahwah, etc.  But really, please do check out part 3 here.  The final installment of Matt’s essay will be up Sunday.  Don’t miss it!

In other news, I am going to be reading this weekend in Raleigh, NC for The So and So Series and through serendipitous means I am going to be reading with three friends from grad school.  It wasn’t intended to be so and I couldn’t be happier that this is the way it turned out.  Also, I am going to visit a friend from high school who lives down there and is a new mommy so happily I will get to see an old friend and her cute little daughter.  I’m going to be renting a car and driving from Raleigh to Charlotte where my friend lives.  Should be a fun mini road trip.

One last thing.  Thanks to my friend Sam I now know about this song.  It pretty much made my day yesterday.
