it was good.

byron read from his upcoming novel.

christina carter had a poem about her wishes for surf guitar music but not surf guitar as it's commonly known.

charles i-forget-his-last-name-and-maybe-that's-not-his-first-name-too read about neal cassidy's adventures in autos.

thurston's stuff revealed where a lot of his lyrics came from - longer prose/poetry pieces.

elisa was a little hard to hear at times and was something about a couple and lottery numbers.

richard hell read a great piece and touched on sadness. he seemed like a really humble dude.

obviously, i'm not a reviewer/critic.

#7 was available at the reading.

it rained afterward and i went to gray's.

Thanks for that... you gave a guy who is stranded in London, but would much rather be stranded in New York some well needed jollies.

beat focused? what do you mean? i think beat and i think of a small club room where there is one microphone and some instrumental accompaniment for a solo scatter, like a scat performer but with words. anyway i think that is the long way of saying i think of beat as jazz poetry. and that definitely means black arts like nikki giovanni or amiri baraka or sonia sanchez. does anyone listen to these felines? (or read them? ha!) anyway forgive my confusion, i just like to hear your critiques so thank you.

only 15? so you are a reagan baby! you reagan kids get me. golly. i'm a carter kid so my early years were influenced by southern gentility. but seriously if you want to get into so called classical american music aka jazz on the verbal tip, definitely check out sonia sanchez and amiri baraka. they have more of a historical consciousness than the pure religiousness of the beats like ginsberg and kerouac. but they are not to be confused historically speaking. kerouac and ginsberg were born in like the 1930s and sanchez and baraka were born like ten years later. so there is a gap there to be reckoned with or not reckoned with but at least noted. in other words kerouac and ginsberg could still hold the sceptre for beat royalty because they paved the way. go nancy reagan!
