Long time, no update. Life has been extremely busy over the past two weeks.
Admittedly, I do have an issue with books where, if I can’t finish it one sitting, it’s probably going to take me a lot of time to finish it at all. Reading’s one of those things where I can focus my typically-multi-tracked-mind on a singular task and work it until completion. That’s where I am with Jacqueline Novak’s “How to Weep in Public: Feeble offerings on depression from one who knows.”
We look up the painting to see what William Carlos Williams is talking about if we don’t already know it. Lately, I’ve been thinking back to Icarus, back to this poem in particular because I like it.
I’ve been a little remiss in sharing links to my articles here as well as on Facebook and Twitter. Here’s what you might have missed:
- “Why We Should Never Trust Magazine Covers”: Kerry Washington calls out a bad photoshop job with grace, but we should all be weary of magazine covers.
- “The Mountain Goats at the Columbus Theater: ‘Just Stay Alive'”: A review of last Sunday’s concert in Providence, RI.
And from last week:
- “Ongoing Fights Over Device Security”: The FBI may have dropped the case, but are there still concerns about Apple’s perceived non-cooperation?
- “Focus on Acceptance, Not Awareness”: Autism self-advocacy groups have been at odds with Autism Speaks, and we need to listen to them.
- “Hamilton Casting Has People Up in Arms”: …But I’m pretty sure Hollywood and Broadway have been asking for “Caucasians Only” for years.
- “Growing Up in Chatrooms”: What does it man if you have nostalgia over AIM?
- “11 Songs for Werewolf Prom”: You’ll be howling for these tunes.
Keep an eye out for next week–there’s going to be some journals, books, and cleaning tips.
We’re not going to be able to make the deadline, which is something that has me really bothered.
I’ve been writing an original sci-fi thing lately.
I forgot there was a poetry reading on my campus yesterday and I unknowingly wandered into it.
