update #092608

Brian Foley's The Tornado Is Not A Surrealist is done sold out!

huge update coming later this week! new books! broadsides!

Sunday, September 28, 2008



just finished watching Brand Upon The Brain, a film by Guy Maddin. If you haven't seen it yet, do so immediately. It is one of the creepiest movies, not in a horror-movie sort of way, just rather, in its oddness. Its a combination of classic children's literature, Georges Méliès's silent film A Trip to the Moon, black and white Henry Darger drawings, someone's 8mm home movies, and the lead-tyke from 400 Blows.

back to work...

update #092408

ha! all orders have been shipped! double ha! Laura Carter's At The Pulse is finished. just need to finish a few broadsides. the same is true for Adam Fieled's Help. i will get these done completely and will have artist's copies out by sunday night or monday morning. stay tuned as i will have official word and ordering info when time is appropriate.

also in production are a few broadsides of a poem that i wrote for The Long Halucinations which is sold out but will be back in print this winter! mark your calendars or blackberry or whatever. also, while cleaning out the office for our yard sale, i found a story i wrote back in the sixth grade entitled "A Strange Man, A Strange Man". this story involves a man jumping through a window only to instantly become covered in bloodsucking spiders. there is also a lot of unintentional stereotypying going on between the head detective Pierre and a foreigner named "Ramon". this story takes place in Paris by the way. this story also involves a man who wears all black except for a peach-colored scarf. and Pierre's named is spelled "Pier" which i will just assume was supposed to be "Pierre". i will also finally correct the spelling mistakes sixteen years later.

this will be in chapbook form, and will be cheap. i would also suggest that don't expect this story to be nominated for a pushcart going in. its more of a funny ha-ha sort of thing. well, at least to me.

pictures to come!

this song is currently number 4 on my itunes "play count" sort:

update #090908

got am email from dzanc books' Dan who is doing some great things with the Emerging Writers Network [website]. his reviews are usually dead-on. its great when you come across people who are genuinely a fan of printed matters.

as far as greying ghost news goes, books have been a moving. all orders have either been shipped or have been packed and will be shipped out later this afternoon. this is exciting news for me as i've been behind and am no legally caught up. legally. i have 5 copies of Shane Jones' I Will Unfold You With my Hairy Hands. i have 2 copies of Peter Berghoef's News of The Haircut. i have 6 copies of Christopher Rizzo's Naturalistless. and i have 12 copies of Allen Bramhall's Walden Book. i have 6 copies of Brian Foley's The Tornado Is Not A Surrealist. if you are a last minute type, you should visit the Airforce Joyride site pronto while you legally still can. i like throwing the word "legally" legally into sentences.

Adam Fieled's Help and Laura Carter's At The Pulse are about a week or two away. they are looking excellent if i may say so myself.

i thought about calling up the classic rock station to request Humble Pie's 30 Days In A Hole. i didn't.

went to the grolier poetry bookshop over in cambridge and picked up the following:


    Panic Grass by Charles Upton
    Friend Delighting The Eloquent by Matthew Klane
    Entire Days by Joseph Simas
    August Letter To My Wife And Daughters by Joseph Torra


the Simas purchase i am especially excited about because its a Burning Deck Chapbook from 1985 and it cost me only $4.00. if you haven't been to the grolier bookshop, you best get over there. legally.

more later.
