more than a detail

Ryosuke Cohen (Brain Cell Fractal #634 (detail)) Posted by Picasa

well, i guess this is a bit more than a "detail": it's a whole half of BCF 634! (full dimensions: 42 X 29.5 cm) i won't try and guess who all did what here (but i do see Billy Mavreas, buZ blurr, the Haddock, etc.) but i particularly want to point out: "an index to 1496 o729..." that's the cover logo &c. from jwcurry's index to my old VAN zine (here's a scan of the cover: & here's the vanlist:

anyway here's Ryosuke Cohen:

here's the complete list:

Hat is my little photocopy broadside-type zine... most issues are a single 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of white paper folded in half: giving 4 pages (or so)... Hat is a continuation of Van: which i produced out of Vanderhoof, B.C. & itself was a continuation of Mo' Gumbo which i did in Victoria, B.C. at the end of 1999? (2000?) (only 23 or so issues)

anyway, if anyone is interested in picking up any of the issues they are all available as reprints (at an atrocious price!) plus some of them are still in stock (the most recent 10 or so) [i only make 50 copies!] & subscriptions are available too (for future issues) ...

hat hits 100!

i was going to finish up that list this morning, but i thot it would be more fun to do this:

Escargot Cult Award - $400

Laurie Dunn "Window Box" Posted by Picasa

the [mailsnail] gang scraped together a "modest cash prize" ($300? $400?) as a sort of lifetime achievement award for the Canadian poet Andy Suknaski... (this is the second attempt to award one to one of our heroes, the first one was turned down! (by Gerry Gilbert))

Andy is famous for dropping poems from airplanes & leaving them on mountain-tops, etc. & has quite a few books to his credit (even some concrete/visual poetry!)

next year: The Babynous Cult!

sunset or sunrise?

John R. Barlow "Moulin Rouge" Posted by Picasa

this is the interior of a mailing by John Barlow: couple of nice readymades: "one drop does it" (reminds me of something else) & gotta love that numerological delight:


plus if i'm not mistaken that a collaboration with Jim Leftwich there (but is it a genuine or a fake collaboration? if barlow spills a beer on a leftwich piece does it make it a "collaboration"?) ... & i wish i could say that was some poetry bucks there, but i guess we'll have to confess that they're hockey bucks! john's got his priorities straight!
