by on Jan.14, 2012

at Warwick University in the UK next week. If you’re in the neighborhood, please stop by and participate in the symposium on “salvage punk.” Here’s the info.

Joyelle will give a great talk that involves Rihanna, Aase Berg, Kim Hyesoon and PJ Harvey, as well as a talk more specifically about the idea of the necropastoral and a reading.

    For instance: “a men and a women” is not a typo nor a grammatical error.

    (See, China Mieville, Embassytown)

    “They speak by regurgitation. Pellets embedded with enzymes in different combinations are sentences, which their interlocutors eat.”

    You Are Completely in My Power

    Read this book. Don’t look for or listen to anything about it first. “Surprise, surprise, surprise.” (Gomer Pyle) I wont give one word away. I will tell you this—China Mieville’s Embassytown puts all the past two decades’ palsied pleas for Unoriginal writing pasty-face down in the shithouse.

    Staying Power

    Just you wait for the Festival of Lies. (See Embassytown)

    So far there are 3 climaxes to this novel

    and I’m only halfway through . . .

    “Language is a virus from outer space.”

    Believe it. This—is Embassytown.
