Silliman’s Blog

The vote’s in that posting videos on his blog that are easily sourced is a two-wheeled trike. I know he must weary from his years of perspicacity, blogwise, but mining Penn Sound and Youtube does not require handholding.

To Be by Lynn Behrendt

Thanks to Ron Silliman’s link collection, this collage by I saw her read last summer: go here. My laptop serves it up poorly, and I am thinking it works better as a physical object than a virtual one, but tra la, take what you get. I love the engravings, and the old postage stamps. Do I detect Monty Python’s vole up near the beginning? I’m not sure the words do much. As I said, impact is lost on the small field of my laptop, but the intruding words do not seem to match the visual impact. I mean, the visuals are so stately, historical, and important, and the words seem like jottings. Not that that collision isn’t interesting, but the words are overmatched.
