Real Actors Read

So, perhaps you’re wondering: where’s the original writing?  I began this blog to focus on recycling youthful, forgotten poems, perhaps a few new poems, and excerpts from fiction-in-progress.  I’ve been doing all of those things, but things get in the way of my vow to share them: first the holidays, and now a seemingly ceaseless barrage of interesting links and pictures and gods know what else.  I found “Real Actors Read” by chance–it’s pretty straight-forward: actors doing dramatic performances of unexpected prose including recipes, travel reviews, and so forth.

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
