I'm not a poet. Not even close. It's funny then, that I've chosen to leave the reservation of prose and attempt some flarf, of all things. If you've followed my writing, you will know that by now I've been experimenting more and more with my writing and finding limitations in my skill level as well as the form I had come to love.

The Anthropologist

I was going to wax lyrical on a quote from Kenneth Goldsmith, "The shipwreck of the singular." In many ways it encompasses what I've been moving towards in trying to see more than what I see in a short story or novel and to try for more than one narrative. But in a used bookstore I found a book (no longer in print and so no links available) from an anthropologist who was exiled during the McCarthy years.

Nobel, Prizes and Bob Dylan

I just heard the good news about Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize. It's great to hear it because in terms of politics, few writers are as prolific as Dylan. Now, I must admit that I was hesitant at first. First off, I'm not a big fan of prizes, as they only confirm the insularity of each[1], but sometimes they can pleasantly surprise me, and this one did just that.

Trolley Problem

I'm writing an essay for a website which should be up soon, but it has to do with the Trolley problem, which I'm trying to read up on right now (the deficit of proper scholarly articles on this matter is certainly pathetic). Now, there are many ways to cut this problem, and as theoretical as it may seem, it is problem that is very relevant to our world.
