Tao Lin actually looks like Gabourey Sidibe in real life.
Did you have to look up how to spell Gabourey Sidibe, or did you just know? I think I'm going to draw a picture of her. It seems like it will probably turn out really unintentionally racist and offensive.
I looked up her name because I didn't know it and I didn't realize that you mentioned it until later. I went to multiple schools with that Girls writer (the HBO show) who tweeted about Precious and made the internet hate her
I originally thought you were going to say you went to multiple schools with Gabby Sidibe. I feel like your Facebook message like...traumatized me. Now every email I type looks like shit to me and I feel insane. Thank you.
I think I also just read the entire contents of your blog. I think I wanted to find something involving you speaking. I tried to think of a way to describe why I wanted to hear what your voice sounded like/particularly the cadence of your voice, but it seemed abstract and like it would take me 500-2000 words to explain. I also have nightmares all the time! I don't grind my teeth, but I frown, and it's giving me wrinkles so I had to start sleeping with tape on my forehead. I really loved the story about the attic dad. I gave someone your book to read when I was in Taos, and they said it was really special, and that you'd be really good at writing children's books. Just FYI.
You're looking for a recording of me reading? I can give you a link if you want. Thanks for sharing my book. I wrote a children's novel last year for grad school. I need to edit it. I like Jereme Dean too.
He (Jereme Dean) feels the way Jim Carroll felt when I was 14.I want to sit in a blanket tent and drink cheap wine and read a Bradley Sands children's novel. Yes, please leave me a link.
Not sure if that worked. Maybe it's considered spam if a comment only contains links. I'll try again.http://www.orangealert.net/node/635http://www.thevelvetpodcast.com/audio/the-velvet-live-bradley-sands-reads-at-leela-european-cafe/
That is not what I expected. Not at all. But then, I kept thinking, "His voice sounds like watching a Gregg Araki film," and I really don't think that's something you can anticipate.
Can't figure out how a voice can sound like watching a movie. Used to watch The Doom Generation and Nowhere like crazy. Looks like I just got fired from my online tutoring job for helping a kid brainstorm a story about someone getting kidnapped.
I think, again, to explain the voice thing, it would take a fucking dissertation, but I'll try in as few sentences as possible.I love at first sighted a person once, and I thought, "This is the exact same feeling as seeing a black trash bag on the side of the road." It's like, an instantaneous thought. If I go back and analyze it, it's something like, trash bags, in most places, are made of garbage, but on the side of the road, they are FUCKING exciting. They could be made of something other than garbage. They could be made of school glitter, or a type of monster, or a cut up or entirely whole dead body. It's something like, humans, like trash bags, my life experience tells me, are mostly made of garbage. Sometimes, in a different context, certain humans seem like they could be made of anything/exciting/not garbage. I'm not sure how exactly your voice sounds like watching a Gregg Araki film because I haven't had the time to you know, like, "mull it over" in that way. I would be interested in hearing the exact language and tone the person used to tell you you were fired and why. It seems like this is the perfect time of year to visit homelessness.
Responding and checking the blog entry is kind of annoying. I'll email instead.
