A few quick updates!
Thanks so much to fellow LIC’er Eric for supporting poetry in the area and including my poems and spoken word recordings on his great local music/food/culture blog, Sometime in Long Island City! We met at the John Lennon tribute I sang in at LIC Bar back in December. You can check the post out HERE. Thanks so much also to J for being a doll and recording me reading my work (psst.. his next film is going to be pretty insane.. AND this track of his is stuck in my head almost constantly.. but I digress). I put the recordings up on a shiny new Soundcloud – you can check out the playlist on my site HERE.
Here’s one I wrote some moons ago called ‘disassociative’:
Speaking of poetry recordings – I stumbled upon this great new site called A Poem From Us – you can record a video of yourself reading your favorite poem and upload it! I love the idea and I’m planning on participating as soon as I can figure out which poem to read…
Lastly! I am incredibly excited that my book is nearing completion. It’s a retrospective of my favorite pieces of work from 2000 until now, with a dedication to my beautiful Nana, of course.. I’m aiming to release it around what would have been her 66th birthday next month. It has an amazing cover by a lovely graphic designer I know (who is also an incredible burlesque performer!) and I’m currently going over my printing options.. D.I.Y. ‘TIL I DIE! Can’t wait for everyone to check it out.
