A Little Madness in the Spring

March 15, 2012 - by Mr. Shay Tasaday, Editor in Chief

THIS SEASON’S VERSE: To wit, we begin our first seasonal issue with: Mr. Hal Sirowitz’s haiku series, which is a progressive work, one which more than decisively affirms, as one might expect, the perspicacity and concupiscence of this extraordinary journal’s mise-en-scène. Mr. Scott Emmons favors us with a poem that allows one to view the world in context of a post-racial, socially mediated age and its arrival as one of the multitude of paradigms exemplifying Eliot’s “Gleeks.” For her part, Ms. Katharine Showalter jarringly apposes a sense of immediacy with a sense of theater re: SuperPacs. Similarly, Mr. John Muth’s work illustrates a historic breakthrough technically and compositionally, as well as being loaded, like R. Kelly’s better work, with tragic and metaphysical portent. Meanwhile, Mr. Andy Bury sheds light on a post-suburban landscape that embodies the technocratic discipline of, say, HAL 9000. With influences as diverse as Rousseau and Miles Davis, Jessica L. Kleinman offers new variations manufactured from both explicit and implicit discourse. En fin, Mr. Dustin Michael writes with admirable clarity and concision on a subject of extreme complexity, avec corned beef.

IN PROSE: Cleverly apropos of current cultural memetics, Ms. M.N. Hanson sharply defines a stunning moment in literary tradition based strictly on a jaundiced cynicism. Apropos of nothing, Filipino-American poet Mr. Bernie Keating offers a piece that starts out undefined but soon becomes debased into a dialectic of power, leaving only a sense of chaos and the inevitability of a new beginning.

IN CLASSICS: Our patron saint, Mr. Mark Twain debuts here, with a loverly, inflammatory bauble.

    Finally a person that puts some real work into a blog. I do like what you have done with the blog. My blog is on Ass Pain Relief.

    Great points altogether, you just gained a new reader. What would you suggest in regards to the post that I made some days ago regarding world dominance and racial purity? Any positive?
