I've been reading some Nietzche.

What's peculiar about Nietzche's "bad rap", is that he was really advocating a culture based on the primacy of life. He saw religion as suffocating and destructive and harshly judged morality.

For myself, I feel like occasionally I fall into a way of seeing which is "garish", when the world appears hostile and we are challenged by certain fundamental paradoxes in human nature...

I wrote dese leer-ics y'all.


I live in a tower
that will never change

just the hands that collide
at the canopy

I ebb from a touch; flow taxonomy
I climb only when the words come easy

she says she'll sleep with me
if I speak a higher frequency
I took this as a sign that
all she wanted was the thrill of...

WHOA. SUMMER HAPPENED.

Back in my last year and I'm suddenly an editor for a small mag and surrounded by poets. I've never been so psyched for homework. Something about finding really good poems made by a young writer feels like prospecting.

School is done!

Now for a month of debauchery and travel. In Toronto visiting old friends this week, and then from the 10th of May to the 14th I'm off to NY. I'll have to get some pics of all the dingy hole-in-the-wall's I find.

Now that my heavily discounted University Gym classes are over, I need to find a summer dojo...

Another all-nighter essay. I really don't care about Peacock's or Shelley's thoughts on poetry, but I have to compare The Four Ages with A Defense of Poetry. I'm just glad next year I'm signed up for courses which all involve literature written in the 20th century, (with the exception of a mid-level Phil class on Nietzche/Deleuze, Neitzche being a...

hanke:

i love poetry

robotsatemyhair:

I... hate... Shelley.

There. I said it.


I had a babysitter who would pet my back every afternoon while she watched TV at that weirdly low volume that some people watch TV. I was four, and I'd sit still for hours.

Also, in idle contemplation I thought about possibly getting this as a tattoo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Klee,_paul,_angelus_novus,_1920.jpg

It's based off of Walter Benjamin's analysis of the painting in his "Theses On The Philosophy of History":

"A Klee painting named Angelus Novus shows an angel looking as though he is about to move away from something he...

Went over to a friend's place last weekend and got a whiff of Mount Kimbie: http://youtu.be/7SfFInoSotg

Really getting into them. Made to Stray is such a good song, as soon as the subdued organ comes on, I'm just blissin'.

Started getting my some of my poems into local mtl/Toronto zine circulation. After a few years of laying low it...
