Kensington to Frederick to Hagerstown to Hancock to Cumberland to Morgantown to Washington to Wheeling to Zanesville to Bamgier

  • Yeah, that was easy, it made me chuckle.
  • So we go into the Bamgier Deli to get sandwiches for dinner, Billy Joel CD playing. Go into Bamgier Bookstore to reload Planet's K-Card, Elton John CD playing. This is not just Bamgier phenomenon - when I go into student coffeehouse in Library at Illtophay, same thing.
  • Speaking of Illtophay, not only do I know this guy, I was on the committee that hired him.
  • Yes, Mexico probably got fucked out of a penalty, but (a) fuck ESPN for advertising the game as starting at 930 when it didn't start until 1030 and (b) why the fuck is Mexico wearing black kits and (c) fuck Chicharito, whiny fucking bastard. 
  • It seems that once incidence of the inadvertent shitsmear was limited to that one post two posts ago, so it's fuck blooger, not FUCK BLOOGER, at least for now. 
  • What is the business of literature?
  • Two new Frederick Seidel poems
  • Song (The World Is Full of Loss).
  • A cheat sheet to the works of Anne Carson.
  • Prunella's latest playlist.
  • On grief and Led Zeppelin. If you read only one of these links today, this one.

Could have been
otherwise and
birdsong make us
nauseous. And
gigantic rolling sunsets
give us vertigo. The
world of flowers
is for insects, not
us. But tonic
is durance among.


  1. Oh Richard! Body blow, darling. Thank you for sharing your pain.

  2. TNR continues to be full of shit. I don't know what's up with them outside of trying to get attention.

  3. The Sweden Ewwww link is the same as the immediately preceding.

  4. Fixed, apologies. I'd like to claim it was gersonaversion at work, but I just fucked up.
