Re: “Chimes at Midnight

Yep. Like Bill said. Saw it last night. Thanks . . . cause I wouldn't have known it was screening if I hadn't seen this piece in CP . . . Have read about this movie for years. It lives up to expectations, if not beyond.

Re: “Poet Terrence Chiusano’s On Generation & Corruption is a striking debut collection

Howdy Bill. Thanks for this review. I enjoyed your writing (as usual) & it makes me want to checkout this poetry. It also stirs thought in a couple directions & if I see you maybe I'll remember to bring it up. . . "pure language" makes me think of Gertrude Stein, which points me to this piece I also, coincidentally (I guess), read today: http://jewishcurrents.org/gertrude-steins-…

Twas a pleasure to see you at the other Mike's place.
regards, Mike

Re: “Swearing

Inspired by Shakespeare invective, says JC, such as, "Beware my sting thou cankerous, clay-brained barnacle." In the 3rd to last line, "stinkers" — by the way (notes Jimmy) — is police jargon for a corpse that's been lost & found floating in the river after maybe days, incredibly bloated, gaseous, ugly beyond words, often pulled out via grappling hook.

Re: “"If you're going to use river water as your drinking water, you shouldn't discharge bromide."

When a bromide isn't a bromide — terrific reporting.
