Radio Silence (Actually, Let’s Hope Not!)

Normally I like to post a little more often during the summer months, but I have been neck-deep in poetry revisions for my new book coming out later this fall. (More details on that later!)

And this evening I’m going to be co-hosting the LivingArt program on KPFT, Houston’s Pacifica station, from 6:00-7:00 (Houston time). If you’re here in the city, it’s 90.1 FM. If you’re looking for it online, click this link.

I cannot deny that I’m (probably ridiculously) nervous about this radio appearance — far more so than for any other radio spot I’ve done before. So send some good vibes this way, please. Our guests this evening are the very excellent John Hovig and Adam Holt, and I know they’ll be great.

Catch you on the other side of my editor’s duedate for this book of poems, my friends. And I can’t wait to tell you more about it!


Monday Earworm: Peter Gabriel

I have always loved this song, ever since I first heard it when it was new. And while technically my earworm this weekend has been a different song, its video reminded me instead of this one, which is a more exciting and technically sophisticated video and for a more fun and danceable and creatively sophisticated song.

So. What does this song and/or video make you think of? I’m really interested. Tell me your reaction to it in the comments.

I give you “Big Time” by Peter Gabriel.
