The Blogs I Visit Daily

I read more blogs than those listed below.  But these are the blogs I never fail to read on a daily basis.  In fact, I usually swing by them more than once a day to see if anything else has been posted or to reread a post I've been thinking about.

Silliman's Blog

What can I say.  It's a great resource.

Charles Bernstein

Another great resource.

Zeitgeist Spam

John Bloomberg-Rissman's masterpiece in progress.

Allen Bramhall

Allen's one of my favorite poetry curmudgeons.  His work deserves more appreciation than it has received.

Alex Gildzen

A good friend.  A terrific poet.  My admiration of Alex only deepens as time marches on.

Crag Hill

Crag works both the vispo side of the street and the lineated poetry side also.  I am a longtime admirer of his writing and editing work.

Really Bad Movies

I love this guy.  He's a mensch.

Eileen Tabios

I love this woman. Her generosity. Her energy.  Her restless drive to make things, to make things happen,never fails to move me.

Rebecca Loudon

Speaking of women I love...Rebecca is a huge part of my poetry heart.  If I were in charge of picking the poet laureate of these disunited states, I would--without question--pick Rebecca.  I can't wait until her Henry Darger book is completed.  It's going to be a major event.

Mark Woods

I've learned so much from this blog over the years.  Woods curates selections from his voracious combings of the web.  Poetry, philosophy, art.

Mark Young

Prolific, generous, innovative and brilliant, Mark Young is my favorite genius.  And I am happy to think of him as a friend.

Lynn Behrendt

Speaking of geniuses, Lynn Behrendt comes to mind.  Her poetry and collages are stellar.

Speculative Realism Aggregator

Ian Bogost's terrific philosophy resource.

  7. Thank you, Tom. Pleased to be in such great company! Quite a number I count as dear poet-friends. I might mention that Lynn and I are putting together a book of her collages, which are counterpointed by selections and remixes from ZS, which have been made by her. SO I keep the company as often as I can.

  8. Sounds like an exciting book, John. I look forward to it.
