      I’m glad to hear it. Shout at me.

      damn boi

      keepin it real & shit

      this is a cool idea. you should force everybody on htmlgiant to do this once a month or something.

      what’s staggering about blake’s commitment to the book is that he has probably 74353% more books in his apartment than he has cooking/food matter. that shelf is just the beginning, folks.

      I’m learning some things from Lindsay Hunter.

      Man, that video ended good. I’ll have to check out Danielle Dutton. I like her use of knives.

  5. Ridge

      Ca$h is king but Gendron is at least a prince. Those money poems slay! Astounding.

      Alright, I figured it out. I had to allow “third-party cookies” via Flash to watch it. Glad I did.

      What I like most is the thorough rehearsal…

      What I really like is how you manhandle the books. Seems like you have a visceral relationship with them. Unusual, I think, and entertaining.

      I also like the range of works and how you’re just honestly crazy about all of these books. It’s infectious. You’re like Oprah. Except younger. Male. White. Less polished. Less “TV”… but still. I stand by my observation.

      Guyotat sounds nuts. Gendron’s “Bad” cracked me up, then you. That was funny. Have you heard Danielle Dutton read? http://bombsite.com/issues/112/articles/3518 You’re dead-on about motion.

      This is a really good idea. Thanks.

      Hey Mike, see my comment above? Am I right about Blake’s visceral relationship w/ books or what?

      Yeah, let’s go, Giant folk. Everybody, once a month, break out the webcam and show us your teeth.

      i went to high school with a girl named lindsay who looked just like lindsay does in the author photo of the minibook she gave me called peggy’s brother (the title of which totally reminds me of a mayo thompson album called corky’s debt to his father). we smoked pot together on a regular basis (the other lindsay and i, lindsay land, although i think it was spelled differently, like lindsey or something and we had sex once when we were like nineteen or something, just once. she may still be dating her 11th grade english teacher, i’m not sure.

  10. Reynard Seifert

      what i meant to say was, yeah she’s great!

      Money IS in space. All the stuff that Poor Claudia has put out is great, though JG is next level.

      You’re right, actually. I want to see Blake toss a Kindle. Then fly us all to Australia.
