New On-Line Magazine Launched! is the site for a new art journal. It is based out of Helena and is put together by Rick Newby. Check it out. There you will find a video of The States of Matter (With Plasma). Also a review I wrote of Mandy Smoker's collection of poems, ANOTHER ATTEMPT AT RESCUE. Are you glad it's not ANOTHER ATTEMPT @ RESCUE?

There's no photo today because that computer is going through some changes.


Did you see that Silliman had to disable his "Comments" section because it was generating tons of obnoxious garbage?

No problem of that here.


I always meant to write more but lately I've had no appetite for words.

Call it "anorlexia."


I'm writing an essay in celebration of The Aphorism, by the way.

"Ideas never lack for words. It is words that lack ideas." (Joseph Joubert)

A panegyric on syntomy. (Brevity. Conciseness.)

It's an excuse to assemble great sentences. For example this:

"He who fights with monsters should see to it that he does not become a monster himself. And when you stare long into an abyss, the abyss also stares into you." (Nietzsche)

Certain individuals in the Bush administration might meditate on Fred's thought.
