p.s. Hey. Today the writer and much more plus d.l. Cal Graves has made the blog a smokin’ hot totem pole to fireally entertain you while you’re here. Please seek entertainment therein, and thank you for the pretty gift, Cal. ** Chris Kelso, Hi, Chris. Cool about the ‘Haxan’ screening. Which soundtrack did you use, if any? It seems to have thousands. Take care. ** Ferdinand, Okay, cool, will do. ‘The Hollywood treatment’: eek. Little good ever seems to come from that transition apart from bank account input. ** David Ehrenstein, Hi, David. Glad you’re a fellow admirer. ** Misanthrope, Always a pleasure to de-defamiliarise. Maybe your basil-murdered sauce would have been a sensation and you could have been the new Paul Newman. I read a couple of things by Will Bernardara Jr. One of them was packed with all this racist and misogynistic stuff that just seemed like ‘shocking’, controversy-chasing click bait, and I found that really uninteresting and didn’t read more of his stuff after that. But RIP if he’s actually dead, and sorry for your loss. ** Sypha, Ha ha, yes, I know your ‘holding off’ thing very well, and I am totally understanding. It was your birthday? And your 40th? Big earmark there, congrats! How did you mark such an auspicious occasion, pray tell? ** KK, It’s really good, man. And since it’s Infinity Land, it’ll undoubtedly be an ultra-beautiful looking tome. Inside the Castle is such a good press. Really one my very, very favorites. Yep, about Mark Fisher. Cool, I’ll get a bunch of Ka today. I don’t know why he has slipped by me. Thanks, buddy, and hang way in there. ** NLK, Hi. Oh, then I’ll go over to her site today and hope her generous gifting to the homebound is still in play. Thanks a lot. I just don’t understand why so many Americans are so self-indulgent and stupid about the pandemic. It doesn’t seem cowboy-like, it just seems idiotic. Unfortunately, barring an actual full-blown revolution, which won’t happen given the US’s extremely entrenched system, we have hope for an aggressive, incremental shift and, as much as anything, for believers maintaining their focus and attention span on the matter at hand, which is becoming a very rare phenomenon these days, obviously. Well, I hope you get that writing gig because, I don’t know, you’ll have the option even if you decide to turn it down. When will you hear? I think the blog idea is an excellent idea, no surprise. Yeah, ‘I Wished’ is a pretty different kind of novel for me. I mean it’s very ‘me’, but it’s also kind of unlike me. I don’t know. You tell me once it’s out there. Thanks, man. A day full of much upward momentum to you. ** Steve Erickson, I understand why people are numbed by Trump and feel powerless and keep letting all his destructive shit keep happening, but it still really shocks me. I haven’t seen ‘Proud’ because I just don’t watch television. I saw a clip. It looked okay to me, maybe not a whole lot more than that, but you tell me. Everyone, Steve Erickson has reviewed the new documentary about Roy Cohn if you’re interested. I am, and, if you are too, enter. Perhaps the Spike Lee will get a theater release here. Our movie theatres reopen on the 22nd. ** Mark Gluth, Hi, Mark. In what I’ve seen of the US coverage, basically via international CNN and CNBC, etc., the Paris protests are framed briefly as one of the many examples of non-American related protests going on in the world, which is understandable, I guess. It’s not like French TV has the US protests onscreen day and night. Love, me. ** Armando, I’m good, how are you? Well, naturally your book was there since it was one of the best. My pleasure iow. I’m glad you liked the Marten book as much as thought you might. Today? Probably work with Michael on the imminent new GIF novel. Maybe have a coffee with a visitor. Skyping with a couple of friends. Sorting out a Zoom conversation with Richard Hell that the German magazine Diaphanes wants us to have for their next issue. And other stuff. You? ** chris dankland, Hi, Chris. My total pleasure, sir. Good anxiety can be such a help. It’s strange. Oh, I miss tripping, sigh. Interesting, yeah, that’s been my sort of take on the BM guys, that they’re pretty much nerds. I’ve met some through Stephen O’Malley, and they’ve all kind of like that. As is ‘scary’ Stephen himself in a great way. I’m sure there must be actual Satan worshipping BM bands out there, although I do get the feeling there are more actual Satanist BM fans than actual Satan believing BM bands. Maybe not unlike Marilyn Manson or young Trent Reznor vis-a-vis their fans or something. I don’t know. Interesting question. Dude, start a petition to change your school’s name. You could get a couple of thousand signatures easy. May your morning be your day’s pearly gates. ** Right. Please luxuriate in Cal’s stack until further notice aka tomorrow.
