Video stills in Angry Old Man Magazine

AngryOldMan-1

New online poetry magazine Angry Old Man just released its first issue today using one of my video stills as cover art. It also includes four other samples of my visual poetry. AOM #1 is a large issue encompassing textual and visual experiments to expand the notion of writing and written messages. You can check it out here.

Visual poem published in H&

H&-still-2

H& is “an occasional journal of visual/concrete poetry and assorted other oddities.” Today, the vispo blog published another of the video stills from “Succubus Highway.” Although the text is distorted from the heavy video processing, the original reads “Wherever there are ruins/lies like flames/dance across time.” Full image available here.

Visual poem in H&

h&-vispo-01

Visual poetry blog H& features a wide variety of image based poems and pseudo-textual experiments. Yesterday, a video still from “Succubus Highway” was posted to the site. You can see the image here. The image includes text veering into asemic territory due to heavy video processing, but the original words read “Wherever there are ruins/lies like flames/dance across time.”

The video itself can be viewed here.

My text poem “Last Nickle Phone Call” appeared in the literary blog Your One Phone Call. This one features a recurring character in my poetry–Ouija, basically a living “mystifying oracle.” You can read it here.

Four visual poems appeared in the weblog The New Post-literate, which “explores asemic writing in relation to post-literate culture.” Asemic writing includes any kind of marks that seem like they might be writing, or suggest some intent to convey meaning. You can view the images here. All four pieces are stills taken from my video poem “Earth Remains Flat,” which can be seen on my Bionic Eyes YouTube channel here.

Work in H& and In Between Hangovers

One more visual poem in the H& vispo blog appeared yesterday, June 19. This one’s called “Civilization’s Lost–6” and you an check it out here. This piece is another still from a video you can see on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel.

 

Cthulhu Limericks promo video

In yet another blatant attempt to generate sales for my book Cthulhu Limericks, I created this promotional video, now live on the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel. You can check out the book in eBook and old school paperback formats through Amazon, Lulu, and other retailers.

The video has a rudimentary “plot” in which a reader picks up the book, and while reading a sample limerick is transported to a glitched out, eldritch world where Cthulhu darts forward to capture his prey!

Pegasus Paradise music video

Last week I posted a new video to the Bionic Eyes YouTube channel. This one is a music video for the title track from the Tone Ghosting cassette Private Jet Experience  on Coffeehead Duck tapes. You can check out the label (and purchase copies) here:

In this video, nymphs and chimera romp across a candy-colored cyberscape as shattered neon waves crumble around them. Plenty of hyperdelic glitch washouts and damaged montages clutter the screen. Everything melts down into a plastic surface where the biological destiny of the body is denied, and the prurient gaze is subverted into an alternate plane of confusion. This is the longest video I’ve posted so far, so hopefully the colors will carry you to the rhythm, and the rhythm will carry you to the end.
