JewPunk Playlists

A very nice review with a great playlist. Reminds me of plans made to release a CD with the book. They didn't pan out, but I created my own playlists ... three of them, in fact. They were in my computer that got stolen last year, but perhaps someone out there who I sent them to still has a copy? If so, let me know! http://www.newsprint-fray.com/2011/03/23/i-used-to-shiver-in-the-wings/




WHO Wrote That Book?!

Check out the interview at the following link to see why I suffered momentary metaphysical crisis recently (be sure to read through to the final comments to get the full effect.)

Beefheart -- Conduit -- Hot, Sexy, Sultry, Sweaty

HI Everyone,

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:


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:


Rock on!
