Ryan & Christy Call’s POCKET FINGER

New from Publishing Genius:

Wow. POCKET FINGER represents a new level of ‘wow, fuck’ from Adam Robinson, the Publishing Genius. Insane and beautiful enfolded images from the clearly new and intricately spare imagery of Christy Call, meshed with bro-for-life Ryan’s knack to meld the everyday of fathers, fishing, and tradition with some tonally-wicked phrasing.

Read the shit out of this.

Mean Monday: Christy Call Talks Shit About(2) Irish Literature

We have had no real ‘good’ gchats recently, so I must post this (and invite you to comment on the Wells Tower thread – things are trying to happen there). It’s not real shit-talking, I guess.

Does anyone know of good irish literature I can read, aside from the obvious? At Swim-Two-Birds is sitting on my shelf right now. Should I read that?

Okay, our discussion of Irish Literature:

me: dang ol
  what about
  talk about
  irish literature
  no that is dumb
Chris: irish literature?
me: ignora that

Mean Monday: Christy Call Talks Shit About(1) Ya’ll

I’ve decided to do an intermittent feature for Mean Monday based on the gchats that my sister and I have about stuff. I will select a small excerpt of our conversation, remove it completely out of context, change words around, and then post it for your enjoyment.

If anyone has any requests or topics about which they would like my sister and me to chat, please email me or post in the comments section. We will do our best to have a discussion about it at some point in the future.

Ok, so here is the first entry.

Christy Call on the quality of the posts here at HTMLGIANT (with apologies to Sam Pink, whose chapbook I got in the mail a few weeks ago and read from cover to cover without stopping it was so good it hurt me a lot and then I couldn’t function for the rest of the evening):

some is ok, some is ok++
