new stuff up at Corduroy Mtn.!
Zachary Schomburg's The Pond chapbook should be available to order by next week. i hauled ass and got his artist copies all in tip top shape. i'll be sending them off later this week. once he gets em, i'll throw them up on the GG site. you know the drill. also if you live in the Portland Oregon area, you can hear ZS read from The Pond at Powell's on Monday, March 16 @ 5:15pm as part of Smallpressapalooza. that will be quite the shindig. stay tuned for more info.
also nearing completion is a small chap of a long poem by Peter Berghoef called Hank Williams.
get excited. warm weather will be soon.

"One of the final recordings from inter-media artisan Carl Annarummo's Triptych Trencher project. Meticulously composed sound collage and noise novella. Equal parts oscillator spit, factory floor custodial work, prank calls to someone's grandma, and fluttering something-riffage. If you enjoyed the "Rival Sentinals" cassette on ESR, here is the next step in your journey. This jet only lands on dirt runways." [fr. label]
White mini cd-rs inside a tri-fold laserprint/screenprint-combo cardstock jacket with inserts, inside a resealable plastic sleeve.
Hand-numbered edition of 48.

all mail has been sent. it is in the mail. in other words, shit be sent! later this week there'll be a pre-order for zach's chapbook The Pond. still in the process of getting the covers all squared away. while that's going on, i'm almost done with a chapbook version of a peter berghoef poem entitled Hank Williams. thang's looking sweet too. ordered more paper today because the stuff i was going to use was too glossy looking.
also later this week i should have a few copies of a 3"cd my old band "Triptych Trencher" did for the great vermont noise monger label grimeology. it is not a grime label. matt did some really amazing work getting this thing all packaged. just an awesome job!
i also started on the artwork/inserts for a couple tapes i'm doing for my tape label, which i'll have more info on later. they're looking sharp too.
in the mean time, enjoy this:

zachary schomburg's The Pond is all printed. this weekend i'll be finalizing some cover designs. still shooting for an early march release date. i might do a pre-order beginning next week. there'll be 150 copies. i have never done a print run this large and so far its been a pretty smooth process.
due to the large amount of manuscripts we've received for the greying ghost, we will not be reading any MSs until the late summer/early fall. more info here. if you've already sent something in, you're still quite good. all previous requests/submissions will be considered. this is only for the ghost, not the corduroy mtn.
this will give me time to catch up on queries, unread MSs, and etc. i'd like to do larger print runs too. and some reprints. this summer we'll be hootin and hollerin'.

if anyone is interested in doing a poetry/prose reading on march 10th @ 7pm with Thomas Hummel at my place of employment, please get in touch with me. This will be a release party of sorts for his greying ghost chapbook as well as his other brilliant book Point and Line to Plane.
so if you live in the boston area or if you could drive out or up or over and want to read some of your work, get in touch. we're looking for 2-3 other poets to read. also, sorry about the last minute request. a couple were thinking of doing it but had other commitments. help a brother out! i'll be selling some ghost books at this event too.

due to a rather nasty cold i've gotten behind on sending out mail. i am feeling better. thank you. you can still pre-order the latest batch of Greying Ghost books (see post below). they should be available individually by the end of the week, but really, in this spotty economy, why not reach for the bargain? it just makes cents. coming off of a cold, the super bowl, an internet connection, and a couch all added up to me catching up on GG and CM submissions. most likely, if you haven't heard back from us yet, we're almost there. keep the coffee warm and a light on. we're about 90% of the way through the pile. please excuse me while i cough into an old t-shirt.
i'm quite baffled by THIS and THIS. a few shave-jobs here and there and that baby's hangin' brain.
i am wearing my wife's slippers.
