Collaboration: Opus Vulgata!

My good friends Levi Rubeck, Paul Hlava, Alina Gregorian and I are performing our collaborative what-not-poem-opus thing at Dixon Place this Thursday night in a multi-media performance.


Ticket Sales (only costs 24 quarters).

Dixon Place
161 Chrystie Street
New York, NY

So, I'm sure you're all as curious as we are about how this is going to turn out...All you really need to know is we're all relatively brilliant, and absolutely good looking, and we put on a good show.

See you there.

Amen.

Fashionable Birthday Cake




Valley Candle


My candle burned alone in an immense valley.
Beams of the huge night coverged upon it,
Until the wind blew.
Then beams of the huge night
Converged upon its image,
Until the wind blew.

HTML Ingredients for Pan Cake

 
Computer cake in traditional baking pan. 
Every time I made cakes as a kid it would be in a pan like this, and was inevitably disappointing. Not only that, but before I learned really about baking I wouldn't read the instructions in The Joy of Cooking. I would just read down the list of ingredients and throw them all in. So the cake usually had a thick skin that you had to kind of rip at with a knife and fork, the inside sugary doughy rubber. In a rush to cover it all up I would ice it before it was ready, which made the icing melt and look thin, like the cake was sweating.
Once I made a corn bread that was inedible and pale white. Maybe I used cornstarch instead of cornmeal....or baking powder instead of soda.
On another note, it just took me half an hour to try and spell ingredients...
