Beasts of the Southern Wild just got a bitchin' review in Rolling Stone:
http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/beasts-of-southern-wild-20120628. Court 13, you are unstoppable. I'm going to be in Mexico when the movie releases in Denver, but will plan a film-date party for like July 20th when I'm back in town.
Today I'm in the office, trying to fold together the new issue of the Denver Quarterly. SS's dog is sitting on my lap, napping while I wrangle poetry, fiction, and reviews.
My brother's coming to visit the last weekend of July. He's threatening to rent a motorcycle & drive through the mountains. He can rock the motorcycle, I'm just afraid I'll freak out & lean the wrong way & then we'll go careening off a cliff. (Hi Mom & Dad, don't worry, I will only ever lean the correct way.)
My friend JPH put this Cath Bloom song, "It's So Hard," on a mix for me, & I was listening to it for the first time this morning, & actually cried. I think this might be the song that undoes the world:
WTF?!!!! I'm not someone who has a tendency to tears, but that Nelly Sachs poem I read in June & now this song are both destroyers.
