New Poems at I Thought I Was New Here

I've got two new poems up on Gregory Lawless' I Thought I Was New Here blog. They are called "We’ll know we’ve hit the big time when we’ve got a set of equipment for smut and then another for non-smut" and "Wednesday June 11th, 2010." The first one was started after Brad Liening actually said that to me in an e-mail. We both wrote a poem with that title.

The whole thing makes me so happy I want to do the Batdance:

Some live Radio Happy Houring

On June 18th we're doing the new episode of Radio Happy Hour at City Winery. Our guests will be Sun Airway, Hank & Cupcakes, Jared Logan, and John & Molly Knefel.

If you get tickets here you can get them for $7 since you're reading this blog. That's 30% off. Best deal I've ever had on this site that never posts deals. That's not what's happening here. Except for this one time.

A bio written for me by Brad Leining

"Born in the heart of America, Dustin Luke Nelson is an American-born American who is also of several other ethnicities but not nationalities and is a writer, producer, poet, philosopher, man, astro-man, and human being. The grandson of some people who are real but who you don't know, words run through his veins like blood which is also in there, and his cranial fluid is likewise full of words put together with experience to make wisdom, just as the water of the Nile and other bodies of water flows through his veins because a significant fraction of his body is made of water."

Is it still a secret?

I forgot to post this last week, but Brad Liening, Jess Grover, and I all appeared on John & Molly Knefel's Radio Dispatch podcast and talked about InDigest Editions, Brad's new book - We Are Doomed: Dispatches From the City of the Future, and literariness at large. It was a good time. You can hear it here.

And if you happen to be reading this immediately and are able to run out the door right now then you might be able to head down to (Le) Poisson Rouge for the InDigest Issue 20 Launch Reading which starts at 7. Julia Bartz, Matthew Daddona, Dana Rossi, Monica Wendel, Matthew Savoca, Seth Fried, Natalie Eilbert, and Matthew Pennock will all be reading and it's going to be a good time. A real good time.
