These days I awake
Before the sun
And suck myself to flow.
Savor my saltiness.
Convinced that this here body
In all its wrecked sweetness,
Lays the only thing I ever wanted:
Hell's walls are slippery with cum, right?
I use to think so, but no.
Tip-tapping through my colon
It wasn't cum,
It wasn't anything.
Stagnant life tingling
Stored inside a body
That had given up seeking pleasure,
And settled for glimpses. Continue reading
From jump I wasn’t sure if this film would work because Will Farrell sucks, period. “Stranger than Fiction” is a story about a man and his wristwatch (Farrell plays the man.) This film wasn’t on my go-see list, but free movie tickets have a tendency to inspire my ass out of the house to see just about anything these days. Continue reading
Oh, Ed. Intelligent. Savvy. Sexy.
You did your work. Thank you. Continue reading
Interview with Stevie G. by Travis Montez
TM: You were born, and I believe you grew up in Toledo, Ohio. Tell me about STEVEN G. FULLWOOD: The Early Years?
SGF: My beginnings: a two-parent, five-sibling, working-class family of seven living, loving, hating, hurting, speaking and sleeping, in a 3-bedroom starter home on Campbell Street in Northwest Ohio. At this moment, I am looking at black and white photo of myself. I’m a hairy, yellowfied 6-year old decked out in my favorite blue and read plaid shirt, holding a trophy I won because I could write in cursive. Continue reading
Child, Julia with Alex Prud’homme. My Life in France. Knopf. Apr. 2006. c.288p. photogs. index. ISBN 1-4000-4346-8. $25.95. COOKERY (for Library Journal)
Child was a seminal figure in introducing French cuisine to Americans via her award-winning television show The French Chef. Started months before her death in 2004 and completed by her late husband’s grandnephew, this memoir captures Child’s years in France from 1948 to 1954 as a “six-foot-two-inch, thirty-six-year-old, rather loud and unserious Californian” who fell in love with la belle France. She met her husband Paul during World War II; they married in 1946. Two years later, Paul took a job in France promoting French-American relations, and his wife, wisely, went along. This work recalls her reasons for wanting to learn to cook and details the genesis of her television show. Accessible, passionate, and always touching, this is a sumptuous offering from an immortal chef, a magical woman who feasted on life and found it quite sweet—a recipe for living fully, a lesson to us. Recommended for large and medium collections.
