Yes! Genius filmmaker Michel Gondry finally has a new movie! (the pictures above are part of the publicity) Hopefully it will rock the living daylights, as much as E.S.O.T.S.M. This new one is called The Science of Sleep, and it’s en français, non anglais. Click here to watch the trailer, click here to learn more, and click here to visit the official site.

Click here to look at Ander Monson’s poem “For X and the Origin of Fires” in the new issue of Born Magazine online. I've written about him before, but I have to say again that Monson is one of my favorite contemporary authors for many reasons, especially because he's the kind of writer that shows other writers that it’s ok to do whatever you want, whatever you can imagine. By virtue of his sheer audacity, he gives permission to do the unthinkable. He writes unlike anyone else, as if he is allergic to anything boring, and with such a unique eye. If you haven’t pleasured yourself with his poetry or prose, I highly, highly, highly recommend it. You could also begin to learn more about him here.
