Literature as Spectacle
2011-11-18 17:00:00
The literary world is no longer a space of contemplation, subversion, spiritually enriching escapism, or discovery, but one of spectacle. Nor is the book any longer ?the temple of the soul? ?it is a bare bummed product little different from

Online creative publication, Lost At E Minor, recently posted a series of vintage ads featuring some of today's most popular services and gadgets. The premise? Showcasing that, while technology and design may have evolved, fundamental human desires like travel, entertainment, access to literature and information, sharing with family, and making new friends, have changed very little throughout the century.

Many Contradictions In Sathya Sai Baba Official Literature
2010-11-18 23:05:00
In countries right round the world, when people began leaving Sathya Sai Baba, one of the most typical and prompt responses was to get rid of all the paraphenalia that belonged to devotion to this guru. This meant: the books, the official newsletter, Sanathana Sarathi, the photos, rings, pendants and so on, which would otherwise bring back memories that would prove far more painful than joyful. Fortunately, since the books and publications such as Sanathana Sarathi, individuals of scholarly mind, such as Robert Priddy, Brian Steel and Alexandra Nagel, realised the importance of preserving documentation. Robert Priddy was a contributor to Sanathana Sarathi, and much respected by its editor, the reknown (retired) Indian newspaper editor, V.K. Narasimhan. Here are his articles, which state positions very different to what he has thought in the last decade. Priddy was co-founder and longtime head of the Sathya Sai Organization of Norway. For those who like to delve into archives, ...

Black slavery novel 'Wench' brings out anger, frustration in readers
2010-05-11 17:04:00
By BOB ANDELMAN How many novels have you ever read that actually upset you? Moved you, frustrated you, left you unsure how you felt about the story itself? That?s the way I felt reading Dolen Perkins-Valdez?s first novel, Wench. I read a lot of books?it comes with the territory when they call you Mr. Media. But this novel left me aggravated. And I?m not saying that?s a bad thing; not at all. There?s nothing wrong with a writer pulling a visceral reaction out of a reader. The subject matter is what did it to me?Wench is the story of four black slave women living in the mid-1800s, suffering whippings, beatings, rapes, and the outright sale of their children borne of unions with white slave masters?pretty gruesome, hardcore content. It was not a pretty time, of course, and this is not a pretty book. It should make for an interesting conversation with the author. Dolen Perkins-Valdez Website ? Twitter ?

Hello, Miss May, 1966! Anyway, cartoonist Gahan Wilson still has me beat. He?s been connected with Hugh Hefner?s monthly treehouse for boys for 50 years!

Abbas Khan's Assets
2009-03-19 09:28:00
There used to be a fort on the central citadel now known as Kila Kohna Qasim Bagh in Multan. Save some debris and parts of walls at places nothing is left of the historic fort for next generations. Ravages of time have obliterated all except a verse etched on the western gateway.This verse along with the name of Muhammad bin Qasim who is considered as builder of the fort has carved an eternal slot in the archives of history. The verse reads: ?A bud is hesitant to sprout, foliages around it are surprised why the bud is sad, unwilling and ask, why you are not sprouting. Look what is around you: running water, proximity of flowers, fluttering birds, morning air, and dew. What else you need??Abbas Khan says, "I have lived in Multan for many years. Seeing my pathetic condition on return from there, friends asked, ?You have been in Multan for so long. What have you brought from there?? A lot I replied. ?What?? They asked curiously. I opened my box and took out my book of days, opened a pa...

I don?t know when Urdu became my identity. It is ascribed one and I love it; really. Born and raised speaking Punjabi, I also had to learn foreign languages (like English and Russian) to move about in faster lanes of life but I always express my deeper emotions and inner feelings in Urdu. Two of my books Izhar (Expressions), Ret Pe Tehreer (Written on the Sand)} are in Urdu. This (Urdu) sophisticated language facilitates you to do that. Anyone speaking Urdu in a crowd of people speaking alien languages is automatically a company.I realized my love for the language when I was learning Russian at National University of Modern Languages, Islamabad. When my Russian teacher Alica used to say, ?I have learnt more Urdu than I have taught you Russian.? When Sakina Mirkhajevna used to ask us to sing her songs in Urdu; she could not understand the meanings but, ?I enjoy the sweetness with which words flow,? she used to tell.I learnt English the hard way.

Short Story
2009-03-09 09:28:00
Pervaiz Munir AlviEven though there was nothing remarkable about him, still every body knew Bakka Gujjer. Those were the days when many in our neighborhood kept a milk cow or a buffalo at their homes. Bakka was their sole trusted community cow-hand. At the crack of the dawn he would show up at our door and yell: ?Doctor Chaman, Bakka is here.?When I was young I used to hate Bakka for many reasons. For one, I had this assigned job to get out of my bed, go downstairs and hand him the milk-pail filled with water so that he could wash and milk our cow. And then I must stay there to take the heavy pail of milk back upstairs to the kitchen. And the second reason: ?Why the hell he always calls me doctor chaman?. ?Bakka, I am not Doctor Chaman and don?t you call me by that name,? I would scream at him. ?OK Doctor Chaman,? Bakka will answer with a grin. And the third reason of my irritation with him was that Bakka was hard of hearing. ?Why must I always yell at the top of my lungs so that Ba...

In Search of a New(er) Digital Literature curated by Alan Bigelow Given its ongoing (and often surprising) metamorphoses on the web, it is dangerous to lay claim to a universal identity for digital literature, where exceptions to the rule often signal the coming of new forms, new iterations. But as a result of recent technologies, and digital literature's explosive re-invention of itself on the web, some aesthetic patterns may be emerging on the contemporary scene that offer hope for a form still struggling for its public identity. terminal- in search of a new(er) digital literatureMedaille College News - Blog Archive - Dr. Bigelow Curates Digital Literature Exhibitioin

HERE ARE THE REASONS WHY THE JUDGES CHANGED THEIR COLLECTIVE SPLIT MIND AT THE LAST MINUTE:1. Judge Klaus Von Schtikiarschen had to declare a precarious connection to the auld Buff. Apparent Lee, he laid a certain Cindy Spreadumwider shortly after the auld Buff did. Buff's name was subsequently mentioned by the harlot to him as a possible future literary genius in a postcoital Scrabble game.2. No-one with above average sized testicles has EVER been awarded this prize. The Bird & Buffalo BOTH have scientifically-verified larger than life balls.3. The book submitted on behalf of the Bird & Buffalo by an anonymous admirer entitled FEK-U: THE COLLECTED WORKS OF BIRD & BUFFALO DURING THE SPLODGE WARS - 2001-PRESENT was considered to be so devoid of any real meaning - roughly 98....

Avram Davidson: A Reminiscence of the End
2008-09-01 14:04:00
The latest death toll figures from Hurricane Katrina can be seen on this website here. The famous Russian neo-Nazi video is on this blog here.Updated September 2:Some may wonder about the Avram Davidson link on the sidebar. Avram (Dave) Davidson was a famous science fiction writer who was a friend of my family, and a friend of mine. The last time I met him, he was near death, so unfortunately, this eulogy is going to deal with those difficult days. I understand that there are folks out there on the Net trying to put together biographies of Avram, so in towards that effort, I offer this.My father met him in WW2 and they kept up a friendship throughout life.Davidson visited me in the Central Valley just before he died. He had heart failure and diabetes at the time, and he was drinking several good strong drinks a day, which is not a smart thing to do, but he was always sort of like that. He was looking for a place to stay in Fresno, but he could not seem to find one.Avram could be a v...

Updated July 12:Looks like some of the Wikipedia Jews (see this blog here, here, here, here and here for more on them) are operating out of Israeli government computers and the Israeli Embassy in Washington DC. Well, I guess Wikipedia has really hit the bigtime when the diplomats and spy-types start trying to write it.This blog has obtained a secret copy of emblem of the Wikipedia Jews, used by them in internal communications via instant messenger and email to ward off spies and infiltration attempts. They make sly references to this motif throughout their communications with each other. This is the first publication of the cabal's secret sign, and hopefully it will stimulate further research into the workings of this very secret and devious cabal.Even read Thomas Pynchon's book The Crying of Lot 49?

WHAT IT MEANS TO STUDY THE BIBLE AS LITERATUREA Review of Leland Ryken & Philip Ryken (Editors), The Literary Study Bible, English Standard Version (ESV) (Wheaton, IL: Good News Pubs. [Crossway], 2007) ISBN: 978-1-58134-808-8 1913 pp. $49.99By Forrest Wayne Schultz I first encountered Leland Ryken as an excellent commentator on C. S. Lewis, one of my favorite writers and thinkers. With the passing of Clyde Kilby, Ryken assumed the mantle of the leading American authority on Lewis, and, indeed, quite appropriately, Ryken, is now the Clyde S. Kilby Professor of English at Wheaton College. I learned of Phil Ryken after he became the senior pastor of "Tenth Pres" (The Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, PA), which I discovered by means of a visit to the Tenth Pres website.

James Bond

James Bond is the guy every man wants to be, and every woman wants to meet. He’s got it all: seemingly unlimited wealth, a perfect appearance, exquisite taste, a different woman every time he turns around, amazing adventures, the latest gadgets, and a license to kill. And he gets to save the world time and time again. There have been 21 official Bond films in the EON Productions series, plus two independent features. Ian Fleming created the character in 1953 and featured him in 12 books and 2 collections. Other writers have carried on with Bond stories after Fleming’s death in 1964. This post is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ian Fleming tomorrow. Many events are scheduled for the centenary. A new Bond book, Devil May Care, will be released tomorrow. Here’s an excerpt. The new Bond film, Quantum of Solace, will be released in November. Homeless James Bond See part two here. The 15 Most Cringe-Worthy J...
