Procrastination Station #79

Stuff I like from the web this week, to totally mess up your Friday plans. I’m so kind.

I love White Hot Truth and if that makes me a bit new age-y and daft, so be it. Check out your permission slip from the Universe, Got boundaries? Got class?, and the initiated woman.

Yet more Ginsberg/Howl/James Franco fangirling: Franco selects his favourite poems (thanks, Peg!)

And from one Ginsberg to another… Scott Ginsberg also rocks my socks off.

Don’t be afraid of poetry!

Editors do not hate you, but they have every reason to.

I really enjoyed this poem, posted by Swiss.

You are what you read.

I loved this interview with Billy Collins.

Poetry competition: “improving the human”, open til 7th October.

Four walls: a psychiatrist’s view of poetry and poets

ONS readers’, fans’ and friends’ whereabouts this week: Jim Murdoch at Salamander Cove // The Forest are calling for submissions! // did you guys know my sister has a blog? // a cool senryu from William Soule // Gemma White now has an Etsy! And you can buy Velveteen Zine there!

I was really sad to hear that the great Tony Curtis has died.

Thanks to Caitlin for sending this my way, it made me smile!


And speaking of geektastic… I’m sorry, is that A DALEK DRESS?!

I heart Shakesville.


Loved this film of the Rolling Stones, listening to a cut of Wild Horses for the first time…

I know I’m late to this (brilliant) party, but I just discovered Meursault.


Have a great weekend, all!
