I think I'm possessed. But not by an evil spirit, or a well adjusted malcontent, it's just a hard working individual who's working in the wrong field.

This place is so quiet sometimes I be looking for a last word about something. My last word, Doesn't anybody know how to rock and roll anymore? Blues jam, riffing on the cloud, riding the slipstream, cruisin' for a bruisin' how come all you young people so fuckin' old. You must all be working. Sorry.

Hi Gail,

Well, there is this line of thinking...

“The less one sees of other writers the more of a writer one will become. When one sees scarcely anyone except other writers, one is ready for New York.”
― Nelson Algren

(I don't think he meant New York in a good way)  :-) 

But in general I agree, this whole site is in a lull. Hope it comes roaring back someday. As a newcomer I've seen posts about how it used to be. Sounds like it was wild and fun.

Hi Kedzie. I'm circling the landing strip today, trying to get my wheels down, before I run out of gas. The air in this building isn't exactly warm and aromatic. Most days it smells like an old school with no heat.....I will not quit trying but I'm out of gas today. I just reupped for six more months. I tire of the dead zone. But. I'm getting ready to take a class. sooooo....where else could I take such a class....ok thanks for talking to me....My writing today is just crap. I have been checking out the columns, trying to acquaint myself with the contributors.

Gail,

What class are you taking?

The classes here are very good, love them!

As for the Workshop, wow, that place is dead.

We were goddamn Aerosmith. Not the now, American Idol, Ow-my-hip Aerosmith. But old school, thowing televisions out hotel windows and bangin hookers that didn't even make us pay because that's how cool we were Aerosmith.

Kedz. I am considering the "Gutter Opera" class. I bought his book, name escapes me. His writing is a little bent which i like, bent in a lyrical, poetic kind of way. So I might take that. I really enjoyed Richard Thomas' SHORT STORY MECHANICS, great class, as you know.

Something that is WILD AND FUN AND I CAN THROW TV SETS OUT OF hotel windows.

Put on something that will wake the dead.

Show me the red rocks of Utah. Show me anything about Utah.

...a place absent of Joe Day.

We went through a period like that several years ago, too, when he went to school.

You graduated yet, Joe? I can't believe this group has literally been around long enough for someone to get a college education.
