Did you know I have a bumper-sticker?
P.S. This lecture concluded with a reading from The Unbearable Lightness of Being
*For these poems, I select books that I own, open them to random pages, and select random lines. After compiling these lines, I arrange them into poems.

I moved my right eye, its lid half closed

My friends do interesting things. Some put those things online:
Joe is now writing a sports column for the Defend Cleveland show. His latest article on what to expect from the Cavs this season is up today. He also does a podcast through that website every Friday.
Cole is taking portraits in Ohio.
Mike is writing voice to poetry.
Alex is writing haiku.
And there are more on my links page. The links are kind of hard to spot, but they are underlined faintly.
In other news, I made a pie out of some pumpkins on Sunday. It came out pretty well.
*For these poems, I select a number of books that I own, open them to random pages, and select random lines. I then assemble these lines into poems.

Last week I played tunes for the first time in a long while. Playing tunes is always fun, and I like listening to instrumentalists talk about chords.
It used to be that I bought a disposable camera when I had something important to do. A wedding, a Halloween party, etc. Then I got a digital camera in college, and brought it around to many more places. Today I am literally never without a camera, because it is my phone and my appendage. For others who carry their cameras like I do, I think the pictures aren’t just different in their appearance–we are also taking pictures of different things. When a camera is nearly seamlessly integrated into your normal waking life, the every-day image becomes a framed subject.

I am taking a class with Michael Pisaro.
Besides being inspired to do the work of the class itself (eg. writing papers/reading) I have been thinking of ways to turn the content of his lectures into some kind of work.
Before that, though, I have these: five short field recordings from five locations. I made these recordings on my iPhone while performing David Dunn’s Purposeful Listening in Complex States of Time. It is interesting to listen to these recordings after the fact and hear things I never heard initially.
I know it sounds like nothing at first, but of course it is really everything. If you listen carefully, I promise there is something interesting in each one.
