"Naturally, it would be ludicrous to suggest "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius" is about Islam..." --Ian Almond, in: Modern Fiction Studies (Summer 2004) 50:2, p. 435

"Charitive Euroclydon"

zer lashed subaqueous light
global reign crea-
ted from a clot · to have dealt with Sirius
the clotted storms at the Red River

God-Emperor of Duino · red star
in the rear
glass of a truck · having imperceptibly
slipped into splurge mode, as one
drifts from one lane to

another where the
dividing line is worn · two shades of turquoise
windows · a
stabbing headache from one point in the
zenith · a large, cold, slowly

rotating rock planet · dawn-
ings and sunsets that
take days · tainted love · button down my
shirt while driving · coke bottle full of water

took me by the hand · led me far from this land
along the em'rald river bottoms
song of a cephalopod

" If 'N Sync was a punk rocker's Abu Ghraib then The Jonas Brothers are the punk rocker's Auschwitz." (via Metafilter)

"...young visual artists -- they're the rock stars of our times. They're taking exactly the kind of risks music people ought to be, but aren't -- the kind of risks that ensure the relevance and longevity of a medium."

Bizarro Fiction thread (plus a terrific snark by one of the members).

Eda. (via Silliman)
