THE UGLY AMERICANS



NEW REVIEW OF SLAVES TO DO THESE THINGS by Bobbi Lurie @ Jacket Magazine”

NEW REVIEW OF SLAVES TO DO THESE THINGS @ WET ASPHALT —



"…while ultimately what I think King is concerned with here is the nature of becoming by moving against time as a sort of point of resistance, what she is not interested in is sustaining such artificial constructs as the Master Slave dialectic itself, or of the notion of…

THE GURLESQUE -- Not Enough GRRRL?

My Visceral Thought





I can’t help it. I keep saying I won’t write this post. It’s not worth it, I’ll appear rude, my knowledge is limited, etc. But I’ve decided to put it out there, after a cursory read and setting the book aside in annoyance. The Gurlesque anthology, GURLESQUE: THE NEW GRRLY, GROTESQUE, BURLESQUE POETICS, by Arielle Greenberg… Continue
