in a few short hours i will be leaving for los angeles by way of santa fe. i have decided to document the trip on my travel blog, the suitcase.
i haven't used this blog in some time but i have been wanting to, i just keep forgetting every time i go somewhere.
i would like to talk now about a new online publication venue called yippee magazine began by my dear e-friend alicia pernell. the submission guidelines are as follows:
We like bicycles, trampolines, rope swings, paper snowflakes, and caterpillars and if you do too, we want to hear from you.
speaking of online literature: after having read some of the links i sent him my roommate described the tone of the blogs i read as a 'clawing for intimacy'. i felt very excited about this description. when i first heard it i became excited but this time i think my face gesticulated more aggressively and more pointedly than i intended. i remembered thinking that if someone had been observing me through a series of televisions in a dark room somewhere as i heard this description, they might have deduced that i was 'ethereal' which was not the case and which would make them wrong.
if you are in the los angeles area on October 4, please come say hello at the rio en medio record release party at spaceland in silver lake. it will cost $8.
