“Jay Leno would reach through your skin and deep into your stomach to fetch an undigested Skittle if he were hungry for one. That’s the spirit of Ruthless 24/7 Careerism in a strawberry shell.”
on how to be a World Famous Poet by jim behrle
I found this article because I asked google today how to be a world famous poet because I was looking for a career change after a True Life/or death scare at work last night and had second thoughts about having responsibility for people’s lives when i would prefer to just be responsible for what people read when they were on the toilet.
But I am not a ruthless careerist and would be eaten alive in some sort of poetry MFA tweedy secret jokes atmosphere- TERRIFYING! The only thing I am capable of being ruthless for is trying to get people to like me.
a grump reacts to james franco’s review of the great gatsby
I think James Franco is hot, and appealing and think its cool that he’s so into academia and books, obviously. If he squinted at me the right way or even just accidentally looked in my direction and then our eyes made contact i’d probably take off my underpants right there and say do it, which is probably why i was so disappointed in reading his great gatsby review because it was dumb while trying really hard not to be & he double-used words like raw & ravage & obsessed and then all sorts of “englishy” words you use when trying to sound smart instead of “said or did” and lamely talked about high school girls getting fingered and like any good girl i think that anytime i’m pissed off or unhappy, its some secret sludge i have not yet dredged in the depths of my consciousness so now it is going to escape like one of those prehistoric Land Before Time boiling tar burps into embarassing unresolved personal problems on display and perhaps somedays I should cut myself a break and consider that what I have just consumed is simply a pile of a dog crap on a pretty china plate at my favorite new- american farm to table restaurant.
