Re: “Poet Derrick Brown Blends Rock 'n' Poetry

Had a chance to see Derrick Brown perform last time he was in town at The Reef and he puts on an enchanting, engaging performance - last time with the added pleasure of 3 other poets on his tour (much like how a band will team up with other bands to pool together their fans for one fun night of a diverse roster of music). This time, you also get Thomas Paul. What a deal!

Re: “Poet Derrick Brown Blends Rock 'n' Poetry

Yeah. Looks like what I said was kinda misinterpreted... I told the writer that Publication Studio works as both printer and publisher; that I've been in the former category hoping to soon work with PS as a published author. The word imprint never even left my mouth.

Seems pretty goofy to have to post these comments in lieu of original clarity, but if anything, perhaps readers will look at the 'about' page of Publication Studio's website & watch the video of Matthew Stadler speaking on his great model of creating & building community. And perhaps, also, too, as well, readers will check out the Write Bloody site to find out more about all that they do; go see their authors or its publisher Derrick Brown perform the wildest poetry show you ever saw.

Re: “Poet Derrick Brown Blends Rock 'n' Poetry

This is awesome. As is Write Bloody. But I need to clarify one thing about Publication Studio: making a public for the books we publish is the heart of what we do. Paul Mazier didn’t know this because we are not his publisher; he hired us to print and bind his new book. As publishers we host events all over North America (see our "events" page) and sell the books globally (see our "about" page). Next Tuesday we’re launching Philip Iosca’s debut poetry collection, Ballad of the Sad Young Men, with lunch for 80 people; and they all bought a book, pre-paid. That’s a good start. If/when we’re lucky enough to be Paul’s publisher we’ll aim to do the same for him.

Re: “Irene Deely

You just came into our campground here in Madison, Ga for the night. I have never heard of you, but after reading your "Liberty, Let's Roll" brochure I had to find out more info. Your sculptor made us talk and your words to us were taken to heart. If more people had the passion for liberty like you do we would be better off. Thank you for what you are doing for the people of the United States Of America. God bless each and everyone involved. Also, if you will contact me and let me know it is okay the owner of this campground would like to put your websites and/or links on our facebook and website. You can contact me at 706-342-1799 "countryboys R.V Park" in Madison, Ga. If you would we would like for you to comment on our park at or Thank you for staying with us and showing us your incredible sculptor. It is amazing. I contacted my boss and owner of the RV park to tell her about your project "Liberty, Let's Roll". She was really excited. Have a safe trip and we hope to see you again.

Re: “On Cleo's Trail

Wonderful write up. Definitely something to explore for my own site. Meanwhile, I will FBit and tweet Cleo's trail.

Re: “F is for font

Not douchebag persay, but it stinks of the douchebag's next door neighbor, the angsting hipster.

The sort which says "I remember when Papyrus was cool but it totally sold out in '94". Then all the other graphic designers nod in agreement, but almost none of them notice they're copying eachother's styles in an attempt to keep up with the modern graphic arts look.

Re: “A Look Into the Master's Past

oh by the way i was trying to remember an artist that john mentioned -Koslo ??? the organic flow a painting will take, this has always been a guide to me. you have to give up control, the zen thing, and let it have it's way. i can't seem to find anything about him, john said he was a early pioneer of acrylic painting.Andre Ferrella's recent work in Wisc. brought me on this search MK

Re: “A Look Into the Master's Past

We were lucky enough to have Mr. Killmaster as an instructor in the commercial art program at Ferris State Collage 1968-69. i watched in complete rapture as he painted a landscape once, he was my wife's instructor and i was so jealous. Last time i saw him was at the Ann Arbor Art Festival, still as amazing.

Re: “Anthony Doerr On His New Collection, Memory Wall

I have to thank Anthony Doerr for his encouraging comments on being an upcoming writer (and of course, Bill English for gathering these comments and crafting them into the article). As an aspiring writer, it helps to know I'm not the only one working in doubt.
Can't wait to read the book!

Re: “The Imperial Court System

This coming August will mark my 10th year of doing drag or being a DIVA! I really do appreciate all the ISGCI, MGI and the other organizations that have offered the Gay Community for the State of Idaho. Even though, I reside on the eastern part of the state near Pocatello, I have always traveled to Boise to attend the Coronations, MGI pageants and to perform during the events that welcome all performers. I big THANK YOU to the 32nd Reigning Empress Selena Blaquem Emperor JD Morgan and Princess Andrea Morgan. Keep on striving and driving for the ISGCI!

Re: “The Imperial Court System

Thank you Amy and the Boise weekly for the insightful and upbeat article on the ISGCI. We are always talking about ways to let others know the many positive things our organization does in the Treasure Valley and this hit the nail on the head.

Re: “The Imperial Court System

I just wanted to tell you thank you for the great article about the ISGCI and the ICS that you crafted so well! It is a rare thing for our organization to receive any kind of media attention, I think mostly because people feel that the art of drag is a fashion subculture rather than a serious movement for change. Drag queens have been practicing their art for thousands of years in a variety of cultures throughout the world.

Re: “The Imperial Court System

Editor's note: The ISGCI is not an umbrella organization for Miss, Mr. or Miss Gay Idaho; the Tree Fund or Miss Boise Gay Pride. MGI, the Tree Fund and MBGP are all organzations independent of the ISGCI.

Re: “Author Pam Houston Heads to Boise

Psssst. Hey Pam,

"Mud Season", "Topo Map", and "In Velvet" have less to do with the West than they do with rural life all over the U.S. Just look a couple of hundred miles North of where you were born.
The rainy rural Northeast defines Mud Season, and we all hike with topos there, and look at early season bucks in Velvet.
