Sanders, Ed. “Fuck God in the Ass”, Fuck You Press, New York 1967.
A collection of poems by Sanders, some of which had previously appeared in the Dick and Mother. This was published the year after the raid by police on Sanders’ Peace Eye bookshop and his ensuing legal difficulties on obscenity charges - the title perhaps inspired by his obscenity battles with the authorities, and another salvo in Sanders’ all out assault on culture. This is the trade edition of 500 copies - the colophone states “Printed in 4 editions - the Trade Edition of 500 copies - The Rough Trade Edition of 10 signed & numbered copies, hardbound - The Tree Fig edition - an edition of four signed & spewd-on volumes, each containing an actual photograph of Ed Sanders coming into the oily summer crotch of an Elm tree - The Marianne Moore Fantasy Edition— an edition of three signed, numbered, boxed copies with beautiful drawings by the brilliant artisit Joe Brainard revealing the author’s secret dream fantasies of carnal union with Marianne Moore. Never in the history of Western civilization have such frank depictions of poetic polugropy been published.”

I’m still not sure if my style is Coors from a Champagne glass, or Domaine de la Romanee from a brown paper bag….

Extreme residency concept: alone on a remote island in Lake Superior, Michigan. I’ve been following this one over the years of their development, and although I haven’t been there (yet!), I would still highly recommend it if you are the independent type.
A few days ago the last of our 2014 residents departed from the island. They are now back on the mainland preparing their works and research for this years catalogue and exhibition at the DeVos Art Museum. 3 applications (6 artists in total) were awarded a generous honoraria to travel to Rabbit Island; to reflect on and challenge their practice in a remote forested wilderness surrounded by the largest body of freshwater on earth. Sound like something you would be interested in?
One month remains until the August 22nd deadline for 2015 summer residency applications. Visit the Art section to find out how you can live and work on the island next year, and learn more about the publication and exhibition that the DeVos awards each resident.
We are looking forward to your proposal.

DIY denim repair last week. Not nearly as nice as IndigoProof’s (but she has a special industrial darning machine), nor as beautiful as BandannaWandering’s (but he has a near-endless passion for hand-darning), these are just simple, machine-done repairs to help a couple old friends last a few moments longer…
