Chelsea Martin

Chelsea Martin lives in Oakland, CA in a motel, prepares eggs a certain way, is hungry now that she said that, and struggles alone through unclear emotional experiences. “Why does everyone act sarcastic about my mood?” “It’s just so easy.” She has a friend and a different friend and then other friends, which seems like a lot, but she doesn’t really know, you know, what to say about that. I don’t know, should I keep going?

I specifically asked you not to be slutty tonight.


texts from last night is a website that posts annonymous text messages from drunk party people who send each other funny texts and then submit them to this website.
It’s funny. I get the feeling most of the entries are written by brodudes and skank ass hoes. But like, sometimes they’re sort of smart or existential bro dudes and skank ass hoes. READ MORE >

I Love Bingo Gazingo So Fucking Much I Can’t Shit

definitely not reciting poetry

definitely not reciting poetry

Bingo Gazingo is some kind of old man who writes and performs ‘songs’ without any accompanying instruments. He insists that it is not poetry. Poetry is too limiting for him.

From an article from the new york times website:
“Poets are all in their right place,” [Bingo] always explains, “but a songwriter can go anywhere.”

Huh? Anyways.

Zack Sternwalker Impressed Me, Continues to Impress Me

Zack Sternwalker is a person who lives in my neighborhood in Oakland, but I’ve never met him. I’ve emailed him a few times. He seems nice. I solicited him for this is stupid I love you, but he didn’t want to do it. Then he sent us something for great, but we didn’t want to use it.

K. Silem Mohammed is At Least Trying

“I’m trying really hard. But soy milk in coffee (and I’ve tried rice milk too) is one of the worst things I’ve ever tasted. Urgh yuck shudder. I run a news group on conjoined twins and I’m trying really really hard not to.”

-K. Silem Mohammed, from a poem on Squirrels in My Attic

 Good. I like it.

She was probably inspired by Raymond Queneau’s Exercises in Style (in which he tells the same inconsequential story of a bus ride using 99 different literary styles).

I am excited about Dakota’s project.
