Ginsberg Injection
Nightly Dose of Ginsberg

After 24 years, the video of Allen Ginsberg's legendary appearance at Loyola University New Orleans is now online. The overflow crowd filled up all the aisles and the outside lobby, so he invited audience members to sit on the stage with him. He also did a meditation workshop, and his Collected Poems had just appeared so he spent a whole afternoon signing copies and illustrating each with a drawing. Thanks to Alyce Santoro for helping make this video available. Thanks to Andrei Codrescu for encouraging Allen to come. And above all, we remember with gratitude Allen Ginsberg for his genius and generosity.

Calin's Cameo Therapy and Mexican Occasions

by Calin-Andrei Mihailescu



We find Calin Mihailescu's Cameo Therapy more amorous than therapeutic, which is what we look for in a poem, carefully weighing amor against therapy, and publishing only that which contains more amor. Calin is multilingual and writes with all his tongues: we post here some of...
