I watched Man on Wire yesterday, about Philippe Petit, who did the most subversive thing in 1974, which was to walk a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers. It was a beautiful, sublime act, a fantastic insanity. One of the interviewed commented that Petit approached each day like a work of art. Someone else said that in order to pass as an American, he put a lot of pens in his pocket, because Americans like to do that, apparently.
I think we are all animals, and simply making the best of it.

Subscribe to their mailing list by February 12th, and you’ll be entered in a drawing for prizes that include signed copies of litareview‘s dispatch seventeen, Shane Jones‘ The Nightmare Filled You With Scary, and Easter Rabbit by Joseph Young. Also, the vimeo implies that whatever Joe is drinking up there (squid ink?) is included as well. I’m really hoping I’m the 6th winner.
