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!

Pre-order I Live Here Now from Lame House Press, EOAGH, InDigest Poem of the Day Podcast, and More Songs of the Week

My third chapbook I Live Here Now is available for pre-order from Lame House Press now!  I’m really glad that these poems have found such an awesome home.  Thank you Gina Myers!

A while ago I had three poems published in EOAGH but I think I forgot to tell you.  You can go here to read them.  It is a massive issue and I’m pleased to have some of my poems be included.  Thanks to Tim Peterson!

Also, my poem “The Boat to Shore is Still Arriving at Shore” was the poem of the day for Indigest last week.  You can hear it here. Thanks to Dustin Luke Nelson and all the guys at InDigest!

And, more Songs of the Week by Steven Karl and Rob MacDonald.

My friend Alice gave me the Sean Rowe album Magic for Christmas and I love, love, love it.  It’s been a while since I’ve loved an album.  Here is one of my favorites:

Sink Review and Songs of the Week and Don’t Let Us Get Sick

I have two poems from my forthcoming chapbook I Live Here Now (Lame House Press, December 2011) in the latest issue of the Sink Review.  The journal got a pretty-pretty redesign and I am pleased to be in such good company.  Special thanks to the editors, Steven Karl and Dan Magers!

Also, the newest POP is up with an essay about The Stooges by Jame Belflower.  Thanks James!  Stay tuned for upcoming POP essays from Travis Nichols, Matthew Rohrer, and Cynthia Arrieu-King.


And since we last spoke more Songs of the Week happened by Melinda Wilson, Chris Martin,  and Ben Fama.

Lastly, this perfect little prayer as covered by Jackson Browne:

Reading at New York Poetry Festival on Governors Island Tomorrow

I will be reading tomorrow for the first annual New York Poetry Festival on Governors Island.  I am reading around 12.30pm with the rest of the Coldfront crew.  I’ve never been to Governor’s Island but am excited to check it out.  There are over 100 other poets reading and I can only imagine the effort that went into arranging everything.

In other news Lame House Press is going to be publishing my chapbook I Live Here Now in December.  Exciting!  Thank you to Lame House Press proprietor Gina Myers!  I’m going to attempt to design (or semi-design) the cover of this one.  I’ll let you know how it goes!
