In Case You Missed It:

In case you missed it the new issue of Esquire is called something to the effect of "The Meaning of Life Issue." This issue features some young artists (musicians, comedians, actors, scientists, poets, etc.) who are grappling in an interesting way with this omnipresent issue. The front spread (as you can see below) is Alex Lemon. Awesome. Esquire published some poetry, and picked a damn good poet, at that. Maybe this is yet another sign that a depression isn't the worst thing in the world. (Is it just me or does it seem like there may be a little bit of a focus on the arts.) Either way it's pretty great that a magazine like Esquire is giving a good poet some attention.
