Layne mentioned THE GUERILLA READING that we did last Saturday, and we’ve got video for that.
Big thanks to Tyler Gobble (STOKED PRESS) for getting us all together, and for uploading the videos. I’m going to put a couple here to wet your w-whistles, but if you mosey on over to Gobble’s youtube channel, you’ll find them all. The entire reading. It’s almost like you were there. I mean Wowzers, go technology.

This here’s one of my favorites. Layne reads “Charlie Sheen Makes A Milkshake,” and we all get rowdy. Also she reads “Nasty,” that song by Janet Jackson and well, that’s just fun.

We read outside Lafollete, just in that parking lot. No one came that didn’t read, really. A few cars honked and some pedestrians stared, but mostly it was just us. That was nice. Read: (raucously supportive) or, (sweet enthusiasm babies).
Having the camera made it something special, because we knew we’d be sharing it with you. And, not to get mushy or anything [VOM], but: you matter. We’ve always written for ourselves. Now, we write for you, too. That being said, sorry if we get a bit lewd. Keep in mind, it was a Saturday night. We’re young and frisky, can’t be helped.

Like I said, the whole reading is available online. Some poems are chopped in half and sometimes the camera is wiggly, but that’s part of the charm. Go see, tell us what you think.

The Chicklitz reading is tomorrow.

We picked up the Chapbooks from the printer today and they’re great. They’re in the backseat of ma car, and I’m proud like a daddy. Here’s Elysia posin’ with one, lookin’ gorge. You can get ’em at the reading for $3. We only printed 50, so get your scurry on.
We are excited (understatement). Hope to seeee yooou theeere.

Ps, sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. It’s not you it’s me. (I missed being here)

    Our posters look great. I want one of each of them to hang above my bed so I can stare at them before I sleep (even though I sleep on my side so maybe I’ll hang them on the wall instead). Still pissed I couldn’t have been at that impromptu reading.
