But first I read the ones you said you loved so we could discuss them in depth….
When Kurt Vonnegut wasn’t writing, he was drawing. “The making of pictures is to writing what laughing gas is to the Asian influenza,” he said. The New Yorker has a slideshow of 10 of his cubist sketches. You can find more of his doodles in the new book Kurt Vonnegut Drawings.
Kurt!! Between you & George ….. but yours are more cartoon-y so can’t tell who that is.
Photographer Jean Christophe talks about his project Internal Displacements, which he exhibited at The Half King a few years ago. It’s about Transnistria, the country that doesn’t exist. It’s about finding your story. It’s about how to tell your story. It’s about access. It’s great! Ethan Hill on camera, AVL interviewing.

The way the world is not Astonished at you It doesn’t blink a leaf When we step from the house Leads me to think That beauty is natural, unremarkable And not to be spoken of Except in the course of things The course of singing and worksharing The course of squeezes and neighbors The course of you tying back your raving hair to go out And the course of course of me Astonished at you The way the world is not

Life, friends, is boring. We must not say so.
After all, the sky flashes, the great sea yearns,
we ourselves flash and yearn,
and moreover my mother told me as a boy
(repeatingly) “Ever to confess you’re bored
means you have no
Inner Resources.” I conclude now I have no
inner resources, because I am heavy bored.
Peoples bore me,
literature bores me, especially great literature,
Henry bores me, with his plights & gripes
as bad as Achilles,
who loves people and valiant art, which bores me.
And the tranquil hills, & gin, look like a drag
and somehow a dog
has taken itself & its tail considerably away
into the mountains or sea or sky, leaving behind: me, wag. YES: and @landonnordeman opens his joyful photo exhibit, #caninekingdom, at The Half King 3/12/14 #hkphotoseries #dogshow
