Naked Mirrors, Fractured Souls

I have not been adding to my online curiosity shoppe otherwise known as the Tex[t]-Mex Galleryblog much of late as I have been readying my Fall 2008 Literature and Film Seminar at San Diego State University--the title of this semester's showcase of talent (more on that below) is Naked Mirrors, Fractured Souls: An Introduction to Literature [and Film]. The class will fold together some of the ideas I have played with before but with some added twists and surprises. The big difference with this class is the cast of players/artists/fiends/geniuses who will be visiting our beautiful classroom PS 130 @ SDSU--these include Tomas Riley, Marisela Norte, Gustavo Arellano, Oliver Mayer and, maybe! Myriam Gurba and Culture Clash. It promises to be one of the better literary variety shows on the Left Coast! The class social networking site is here! Check it out!

My TA this semester is a rad graduate student in our program, Kevin Gossett. When he's not researching literature, Gossett hangs his hat with the Ex-Friends, an amazing local band--if you see them listed in City Beat or the Reader, go check them out! Their next show is on the 25th of September at the Beauty Bar.

Tomorrow the lid comes off of our semester-long adventure! Wish us luck.

Over and out.....
