I Live Here Now Available Now, Another Rumpus Review, and More Songs of the Week

My chapbook I Live Here Now is now available from Lame House Press.    I just got my copies a few days ago.  Super excited!

Also, I wrote another music review for The Rumpus a few weeks about the Cass McCombs’ record Humor Risk.  You can read it here.  The next record I am going to write a review about is Angel Olsen’s Strange Cacti.

And, you can check out new Songs of the Week by Yotam Hadass, Angela Veronica Wong, and Jennifer H. Fortin.

I think that is it for now…oh! Stay tuned for the new POP (which will go live later this week) by Cynthia Arrieu-King, Sommer Browning, and Ana Bozicevic!

Whoosh, a bunch of updates today!

First, I have two poems in the latest issue of H_NGM_N.  You can read them read here.  Big thanks to Nate!

Next, check out the most recent Poets off Poetry featuring an essay by Matthew Rohrer about one Journey song in-particular.  You can read the essay here.

Oh, and don’t miss the special Poets off Poetry Metallica feature!  It was just posted today.  You can read it here.  Big thanks to Steven Karl for putting that all together and be sure to stay tuned for more special features about Funkadelic, My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

Also, new Songs of the Week include pieces by Gina Myers, Amy Lawless, and Andrew Durbin.

Lastly, I wrote a short review about Eleanor Friedberger’s Last Summer.  You can read it here.  I hope to write some more short reviews in the future and get better at doing so in the process.  Next up will be about Cass McCombs’ new record Humor Risk.  Here’s a live version of one of my favorite songs on the album.

New POP by Mathias Svalina up now!

A little late announcing this here, but this month’s POP by Mathias Svalina is up now!  Please read, and blog, and forward far and wide.

October 6 brings us a special edition of POP in honor of the 10th anniversary of  Radiohead’s Kid A, featuring writings, musings, and poemings about the seminal album by a pretty amazing group of writers.  Be sure to stay tuned for that.

In other news,  I am obsessed with this song right now:

Oh, and apparently Shel Silverstein authored a song called “Fuckem’!”  It’s true!
