I've only read M.K.'s stuff online and I particularly enjoyed the erotica in Unsaid. I don't really know what's going on there that I like so much - the flatness of the language?- but I really hope he gets it published in toto. Also, I've been trying to get my hands on Dear Everybody for a while now, and now it looks like I absolutely have to. Such sweetness. I'll have to try and forget his voice though -even though it's a nice voice- because I hate reading with other people's voices in my head.
The other day I went to a basketball game. It was really surreal. The Germans chant 'defense' but it sounds more like 'dUhFens.' It took me a really long time to figure out why everything felt so strange. Then I remembered this:
It was really fun though. And the players weren't all that bad, if only a little sloppy.
Sloppy like me.
The day before that I ate a lot at a party. Most of the other people talked. I drank a lot of wine and ate more than my fair share of risotto.
Speaking of food and HTML Giant, Blake Butler wrote a really honest interesting account of his eating habits. I can sympathize with the ex-fatty thang.
But, yeah, what a great reading.
