When our readers, contributors, and editors are enthusiastic about something they’ve created or something totally new from someone else they’ve discovered in the far reaches, we’ll often share it in cozy blast emails or social networks. To widen this network of lines that enlace, we’ll post a collection here as often as one accrues.
- THIS MICRO-REVIEW OF I Am a Face Sympathizing with Your Grief (anthology translated and edited by Alireza Taheri Araghi):
A remarkable work of translation gets even more due praise [excerpted micromicro]: “Although he (Alireza Taheri Araghi) doesn’t elaborate, the poems in this collection consistently adopt a casual tone, relying on accessible, even frequently profane, language. They are also stylistically similar, with lines that reproduce grammatical units, and nearly all of which rely on anaphora as an organizing device. Subject matter, on the other hand, varies more among the poets; taken as a whole, the collection addresses overtly political issues but also romance and rejection, parental relationships, classic mythology, and other topics.”
- STATS OF THE FURIOUS:
As a response to Jayme Russell’s recent PERMADEATH post about Fate of the Furious boredom, this Bloomberg collaborative analysis of the truly strange and as often awe-inspiring as it is awful franchise helps the stat-minded and action flick averse get some sense of what’s happening. Sometimes, it’s hard to believe these movies exist, and it’s somehow more difficult after crunching the numbers.
- NEW EP FROM CHOLLAS:
Los Angeles techno duo do good.
- ONE INTERVIEW FROM CARTRIDGE LIT WITH GABRIEL OJEDA-SAGUE
- AND ANOTHER WITH JAYME RUSSELL:
Among enthusiasms, video game writing is high on PERMADEATH PLEASE’s queue. Both of these writer’s have written insightful, cutting poetry orbiting video games like Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, the Binding of Isaac (both projects from Ojeda-Sague), and MOUNTAIN (Russell). Cartridge lit is a fantastic hub of video games, poetry, prose, and criticism, one of the best of a very few. Exciting thinking in each of these and hyperlinks to send the reader even further out. Pretty far out.
- MORSE CODE POEMS FROM HR BUECHLER’S INSTAGRAM (Oxlood_Press):
Here’s some noise for you to to make sense of. Just don’t adjust your volume or you’ll receive the notification “This video has no sound,” which isn’t quite true.
