a re-introduction of sorts, about autistic and plural rhetoric Show more

Most of Kafka's work is a poignant dissection of modern society and its bourgeois order.

Reminders for the
Anxious/Depressed
Creatives

You’re more than what you make.

Your productivity does not determine your value.

It’s okay to do nothing sometimes.

Not everything you do has to result in a product.

Not everything you make has to be important, significant, or even good.

You can make things just for yourself.

You can keep secrets for yourself, whether it’s not posting some of your projects or not sharing your
techniques.

You’re allowed to say no.

You’re allowed to rest.

reminder that the performance/reading event for the class I teach on computational creative writing at NYU is tonight (7pm in Manhattan) eventbrite.com/e/byte-your-ton specifically designed to appeal to the perhaps narrow but always amazing intersection of "people interested in computation" and "people interested in the literary arts." and, uh, in this case, "people who are in NYC and able to attend tonight." but if you're in that intersection, I tell you what, this event is FOR YOU

there'll be a reading/performance event for my computer-generated poetry class at NYU this thursday: eventbrite.com/e/byte-your-ton it's at 721 Broadway in Manhattan, 7pm, free admission. I'm really excited about the work and the students this semester—if you're in NYC I hope you can be there!

(shout) our old grad school would have such a total shit if we did this, omg.

(luna) them, probably: "what happened to you?"

(shout) 😂 *signs slowly* "nothing. nothing at all" *walks away*

which reminds us; why not readings where the interpreter speaks, rather than the other way around?

i mean, meh. y'all kind of fucked us up with your speaking priorities, but ~ ok ~

i mean, it's not so much that she took all the credit, as much as that even writers (who should know better) prioritize yammering over the work itself. same goes for signing while doing readings. it's ridiculous and i shall no longer have it

*commands the sky to rain and thunder* or something

or i don't know, i'll just sign the next time we read ;p

(luna) shout's finally figuring out that i'm her co-writer. took her long enough, lol

the good fight, "inner cosplay", sort of mimicking Show more

One example. Georges Braque has lived in my head rent-free since that day in 1987 (?) when someone brought proofs for a book of his etchings into the copy shop where I worked. Braque made figures who have blotchy fish or bird heads but bodies made of lines like hand-coiled wire springs or those hair clusters you have to discard when cleaning the sink. He's one of my prized tenants. <3

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed the strangeness of the phrase, "So-and-so lives rent-free in your head." Despite our commonly held views about property and rent, somehow when we playfully imagine a rent-free world it's in the most negative way possible. [grumble]

Tomorrow: my 50-part homage to all the people I *invited* to live in my head rent-free. Breakfast and lunch will both be provided.
