One City

My cat Shinsan died around midnight on Thursday, Dec. 13. His terminal illness came on suddenly, three weeks ago.

Last night was my first-ever reading in New York. Not as an audience member. As a reader. Up there in front of everyone, pouring out my lovesick writer heart. I’d read for friends in Jersey City once or twice, and plenty back in Gainesville and Miami when I was just starting out (and happily sharing…

Hey all, Cassmaster is dealing with a friend’s illness and can’t post this week. She’ll be back next week. Please send good wishes. In the meantime, we thought we’d share this interview that just came out with ID Project founder Ethan Nichtern on The Alcove with Mark Molaro. The Alcove is a very cool internet…

Matisyahu is…

It’s not that I like to spy on people. And it’s not that I like to be a nuisance, either. But I want to meet the researcher who has a reserve shelf full of books with titles like Why Byron Matters, and I want to know, honestly, why. I’m working in the Wertheim Study in…

By Stillman Brown Sometimes it happens that two works of art, perfectly innocuous on their own, come to my attention at the same time and spark like the copper teeth on jumper cables, red and black making a small electrical arc that cracks and leaves behind a metallic, burnt smell. When this happens, I feel…

I got the chance to see the documentary What Would Jesus Buy? this weekend, about Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping. It was great. Now, check out the article I wrote a little while ago. —— The Dharma Is ALWAYS Political By Ethan Nichtern Back in the summer of 2004 I was attending…
