Short Stories You Can Listen To

  This week I am reading Damien Angelica Walters‘ PAPER TIGERS. I’ve read some of her short work before and the opening chapters of PT reminded me that I loveLoveLOVE her voice. I found myself craving at times when reading wasn’t convenient: while walking Harvey the Wonderhound, cooking, driving. An audio fix seemed in order, especially […]

#ShouldBeWriting: Hysterical Literature (NSFW)

I should be telling you to write-write-write or read-read-read, but it’s bloody Friday and sometimes you just need to succumb to the desire. Hysterical Literature is a video art series by NYC-based photographer and filmmaker Clayton Cubitt. It explores feminism, mind/body dualism, distraction portraiture, and the contrast between culture and sexuality. (It’s also just really fun to watch.) http://hystericalliterature.com/ […]
