Here’s Some Stuff That’s Out There

The Rumpus has an interview with Eileen Myles!

Ange Mlinko on Rilke at The Nation.

There’s a new issue of Mike Topp’s Stuyvesant Bee. (pdf download)

Here’s Tolstoy’s epilogue to The Kreutzer Sonata. I just read that story for the first time, and thought it was brilliant how vividly Tolstoy detailed the main character’s delusions, obsessions, and psychosis. Then I discovered that Tolstoy actually meant the story as a kind of polemic, and that his character’s deranged views were actually delivered in earnest, being more or less Tolstoy’s own. Sigh.

Slate’s got a new Robert Pinsky column, on Robert Herrick, Ben Jonson, and how they were complainers.

Also, here is a Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time walkthru from IGN.com. A couple months ago I found an old Zelda cartridge and started playing a saved game I left unfinished 12 or 13 years ago. I have completed all the temples for adult Link (without the walkthru, btw) and am now trying to figure out which 2 of the 4 bottle quests I have already completed, and which still need doing, because I want to go into Ganon’s Castle fully prepared. Oh fuck, I also need ice arrows. Eesh.
