In 2006, the Guerilla Poetics Project put out it's first few letterpress-printed broadsides, and so began one of the coolest small press ideas I've seen to this day. For 2 and a half years, the GPP was a nameless, faceless, wholly democratic collective that made a little noise while getting 50,000+ broadsides of small press poets out in bookstores and libraries the (mainly English-speaking) world over. For the first time you can peek behind the curtain, and hear a bit about how it worked by listening to Michael J. Phillips' terrific podcast THIS IS NOT A TEST.
Michael Phillips (MJP) says a few kind things about my writing in the latest episode of his podcast This Is Not A Test.
The podcast itself is MJP (who also built the internet's biggest and best source for information about writer Charles Bukowski) walking you through some of his favorites things -- books, music, guitars, playing in punk or reggae bands -- in an enjoyable, free-form kind of sermon. Give them a listen. I've enjoyed the chance to learn more about a guy I've personally never met, yet still shared a number of different orbits with, and chances are good you (whoever you are reading this) will have something in common with him too. He's just that kind of guy.
