Here we go again, the latest installment of my every-other-week column for the blog section of The Missouri Review wherein I curate & comment on the “perfect playlist” for picking up notable literary figures (living or dead, poetry or prose) from the airport. This week I went with my 1st posthumous selection, German prose master W. G. Sebald.
You’ll listen to Gorillaz, Bach, The Smashing Pumpkins & Kraftwerk among others. And if you 2 should decide to rob a bank, well I’ve even got you covered there.

From the 3/17/14 edition of The Encyclopedia Show Somerville. The theme of the show was “Explorers”. Throughout the evening we were gradually being “colonized” by representatives from The Encyclopedia Show Washington D.C. I was brought out to try and instill some cross-cultural understanding between the two camps, and I of course turned to the 1995 Disney film Pocahontas for inspiration. You can decide for yourselves on how effective you think it was.
P.S. My class chorus sang this song at an assembly in elementary school and my mom still talks about how the performance brought tears to her eyes. She’ll probably cry at this one too, for different reasons.

I’ve played some comic book shops in my day, and I’ve definitely noticed an uptick in comic book themed promo material for indie shows recently (regardless of venue or show theme) but this is the first time where I’ve been confident that the pic the designer has grabbed to accompany my name was found by Google image searching “bad cosplay”. I am TOTALLY cool with this development. Should be a fun show, join us if you’re around Providence way next Sunday 3/30.

Here we go with the second installment of my new every-other-week segment for the The Missouri Review‘s blog wherein I curate and comment on the “perfect playlist” for picking up notable literary figures (poetry or prose, alive or dead) from the airport. Up this time was Pulitzer Prize winning poet Tracy K. Smith. The list features some Joy Division, Sun Ra, a little Madvillain, and of course David Bowie (Smith’s most recent collection was named Life on Mars after all). Take a look, give it a listen, I hope you enjoy!
