Gaudy Verse

I just finished my latest zine, Gaudy Verse. Rhymes of the most old-fashioned, out-of-date sort. Gripes about jobhunting, gripes about office politics, gripes about terrible rock concerts. It's available on Etsy, but I'd love to trade if anyone's interested.

Each year Musea gladly features the review of the Oscar's Awards, written by Melanie Pruit on her blog, "Confessions of a Movie Queen". I think it's one of the most complete roundups there are. Enjoy.

I am particularly interested in questions of chosen or forced distance,…
