And while I'm going YouTube crazy, here is the marvellous and sadly deceased Ken Campbell on the Big Bang. Long may he haunt the internet...
Oh, and check this one, too. It's about Jackie Chan, eventually (part 3, I think). Aren't they all?

Tom Raworth is a poet I very much admire, so I was really pleased to find this on YouTube. If the blurb is to be believed, it's a piece of "video art" (I suppose) by the man himself. Anyway, even if the hand is of another it's very beautiful indeed (though not as funny as the Lithuanian swimmer...).
"I just make the best book that I can and try to not worry about audience or if it will sell. The odds are against you, so why abuse your talent for the sake of a chimera? The only real pleasure for me in writing comes from pleasing myself." - William Vollman

Someone knight him now, before I have to do it myself in a paper crown and with a wooden sword.

The good people of 3:AM have very kindly posted a short short story I wrote over the summer. I was originally going to read it at the reading I did at Boogaloo (see previous posts if you care) but I didn't have time. So, anyway, go here if you want to see it. It's not long...

Matt Thorne asked me to take part in a strange kind of story relay with Ewan Morrison, Chris Manby, Stella Duffy, Alison Macleod and his good self. The result was called "Messenger," came out rather good and is now published in the new issue of Another Magazine. You can't actually read it on that link, just stare dreamily at a picture of Scarlett Johanson and imagine yourself drinking classic cocktails with a contemporary twist.
