Lilliput Review #160 & #161 on Issuu

I just recently rediscovered Issuu (thanks Melissa, at the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy), where you can publish your documents. It has this neat flip-the-pages feature that mimics the reading experience, sort of. Above is a scan I did - actually multiple scans - of issue #160.

Here's a second issue, #161:

I'm still working on improving the quality of the scan, but this is certainly an interesting way to go in terms of providing samples for poets thinking of submitting work. I've connected up both of these issues to the archive and, since I have no idea what the archive and the Lilliput homepage is going to look like after the imminent changeover to Google Sites from Google Pages, where they are located now, this may be the way I go to archive in the future. Here's where the documents are stored on Issuu.


Because it's Friday, here's a little bit of pure fun, coming your way Christmas Day, 2009.

And for those who just need a good old fashioned Friday afternoon dose, here is a 1 hour piece by the birthday lad, Sun Ra, on one of his terrestrial stopovers on the never ending intergalactic tour, which, of course, continues long after his translation to another plane.

I don't know what to think about the Sherlock Holmes movie. I could imagine purists being a bit upset with it.

Sherlock the new movie?

noise, trickery, and over-priced too salty popcorn

last time I was in a movie house was the first Batman movie we all walked out it was so noisy!

I guess the flash and noise is now necessary to awaken the zombies who go to the movies these daze...
