at the auditions for the lion king

I've got a new poem up at Sink Review called "At the Auditions For the Lion King."

My InDigest cohorts Brad Liening and Jess Grover have poems in there as well. Both poems melt faces.

Also, Ashleigh has a poem in the Two Weeks anthology. Her poem is awesome, and the whole project is worth taking a look at.

Reasons to like John Darnielle

Pitchfork: How did you end up working with veteran metal dude Erik Rutan on this album?

JD: This is a long story. First, did you see the Cannibal Corpse documentary Centuries of Torment?

Pitchfork: No.

JD: Tom, come on. You have to get this thing tonight because it's the greatest. It's like four hours long but it's seriously one of the best rock docs ever made. Cannibal Corpse are a bunch of dudes from Buffalo who've been doing it forever. They are amazing musicians and characters-- just amazing dudes to listen to. I brought this documentary out on tour, and there was a DVD player in the back of the bus, so the documentary was playing 24 hours a day. Any time you wanted to see Cannibal Corpse you could just go to the back lounge and they were there.

Ghost and Natural Wonders

Brad Liening was just interviewed about his new collection Ghosts and Doppelgängers.

The other poetry editor at InDigest, Jess Grover, just had a poem put up in Lily Ladewig's I Am A Natural Wonder blog, which spins off of her collaborative chapbook of the same name. Every poet on here has been asked to write a poem titled "I Am A Natural Wonder." Read these.

New episode of Radio Happy Hour w/ Suckers, Tim Kasher, Arden Myrin, and Joe Mande

We've got a new episode of Radio Happy Hour up here. From the RHH site:
In episode #15 of Radio Happy Hour, “The Christmas Gayle,” Brain Aiken of Suckers, Tim Kasher, and comedians Joe Mande and Arden Myrin join the Radio Happy Hour crew as they mysteriously wind up at a holiday party of New York dentist. But it seems as though the person they’ve come with might be ghost.
