Yesterday at Powell's I bought:
The Battlefield Where The Moon Says I Love You - Frank Stanford
The Anger Scale - Katie Degentesh
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - Tao Lin
Annoying Diabetic Bitch - Sharon Mesmer
I think my friends all have copies of these books that I could borrow, but being around a decent indie/small press section worked me into a frenzy. My friend Kurt said I had a "book boner."
I wanted to buy My Vocabulary Did This To Me, but they don't have it.
Powell's has a section for Mud Luscious Press. P. H. Madore bought a copy of Brandi Wells' Patience and sent it to me. I liked it. Here is a picture from my phone of the Mud Luscious Press display:
I like Portland, I want to move here.
There are little kids saying, "Daddy, look at that man in the sleeping bag, what is he doing? Hahahahaha." Uncomfortable.
I'm going to try to meet up with Kegan and Melissa for some coffee or something today. It's not snowing anymore. But the snow isn't going anywhere, it's 20 degrees. But it makes the city look really ornate but somehow subdued. I feel like a tourist who is trying not to look like a tourist.
Today I want to go back to Powell's and then maybe to Reading Frenzy or something. If you are in Portland and you want to hang out or something, my phone # is 541.646.0900. Send me a text message. Don't call it because I don't answer if I don't recognize the #.
