I have been tinkering with the design for the blog that focuses on my design work for SDSU Press, the infamous Memogr@phics Designcasa--hit the blue image to your right and see what you think!
hit the image for the link! a huge dip of the proverbial sombrero to ace artist IZEL VARGAS for bringing this desmadre to my attention....
"CHILI" may well deserve a chapter of its own in Eyegiene.
a huge tip of the sombrero to Mark Dery for the reminder about this disturbing piece, a miasmatic page from San Diego's history! hit the graphic for the story...

I am teaching Nelson Algren's THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM in my Drugs, Sex, and Rock & Roll class at SDSU right now, Spring 2010--I am in debt to regular correspondent here, Michael Wyatt Harper, for bringing this noir jewel of a novel onto my radar; in any event, Matthew Swanson, one of my Engl 563 students tipped me to this cool conversation between Studs Terkel and Nelson Algren I thought I would share with my class:
Kudos the Ask-A-Mexican's singular hack, Gustavo Arellano, for tipping this piece, hit the doggies above, to my eyes via his Facebook channel!
That prolix wizard of the syntactic baroque, Mark Dery, is at it again with a cool review of Luc Sante's new book on "real" photo postcards. Check it out!
