Major highlight of May Reading

Was the band's contribution at halftime. I made so bold as to ask a former student if his band might play the show and cc'ed him on the prompts as I sent them out. He and his bandmate chose to write a 6-minute epic song including all of the prompts IN ORDER to play at intermission. They've recorded a rough cut of it, which about killed the house. It was sort of like I imagine seeing the Clash when they were playing in the basement must have been. Go here to hear it! Or more easily, just click on We Play Quiet on the links to your right--it will play automatically.

You'll be changed. May reading plus July readers & bios soon.

The July reading: Regrets

Look for goods in the next few days. Also, the folks who did May were kind enough to let me publish their findings, but my old laptop crashed for good this week & I have to recreate the document from email. Soon!
