A couple of new items to check out.
The first concerns Conduit
-- the lit-mag I help edit. The link for the interview is below: http://www.thereviewreview.net/interviews/hot-sexy-sultry-sweaty-conduit
The second relates to the passing of Captain Beefheart -- my super-fave, all-time, A Number One, Top of the Heap kind of rock star-poet-painter-role model. I had a dream about him once in college that involved my being invited to join his Magic Band. We were standing under a gazebo in a Van Gogh green landscape, and there was something vaguely surreal about the whole thing (the landscape was Van Goghian, mind you), yet still happy and calm to the point of nirvana (or at least a damn good cup of coffee.)
In any case, here's the link for that one:http://memoriousmag.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/think-music-steven-beeber-on-captain-beefheart/
