A Brief Miscellany

  • My friend Al Maginnes is the featured poet in the current Wild Goose Review.
  • Allison Joseph has started a blog devoted to the rondeau and its cousins, The RONDEAU ROUNDUP.
  • There’s been a lot of web noise about David Orr’s recent piece on greatness. I don’t know if it’s actually a direct response, but here is the answer. Auden, as so often: no work of art is unjustly remembered.
  • We (Krys Baker‘s band) rented a theater last Friday and hired a videographer. We don’t have his files yet, but Krys’s youngest (8!) took some pretty neat video of two of the songs (“Nine Circles” and “Why Am I Alone Tonight”) with her tiny digital camera. No bass response, as one would expect, but the sound is otherwise pretty remarkable. And I like the way the camera dances. It’s all up, at various resolutions, here.

Thanks, Mike. I really need to look at people’s blogs and websites more often. I hope all is well. Let me know if you’re ever in NC so you can meet the new addition to our family.
