Poetry, poetics, with occasional forays into other arts and politics
Nice funny photo; but not so funny as the ridiculous 'Deathmatch of the short story tellers' bunkum going on over at Broken Pencil magazine's website. Come on over, read this week's two finalists (one is a rather weak REAL short story by Michael Sasi, and the other is a nicely written piece of narrative poetry by Emma Healey passed off as a short story; I voted for the former), and then add your two cents' worth. I've been having fun leaving arrogant comments and then watching the ignorant little bastards take the bait and go off-subject, revealing their innate ineptness and bigotry along the way! Why don't you leave some commentary and then sign your name as 'Brian Campbell: Big Important Poet' or something? It would be worth the laugh. And have you read Broken Pencil lately? That's quite the giggly farce in itself!
I doubt I have time for such shenanigans right now. Looks like, though, there's been a regular (well,below the belt) slugfest in the squawkboxes over there. Looking at your comments, at least, I found your myspace address -- which I couldn't find for some reason from your previous directions. So you're on my blogroll now.
