I THINK THERE'S AN IDEA BEHIND MY FACE

UPDATE: so far blake, lizzy ellen, mary miller, barry graham's daughter and lizzy ellen's daughter will be sending videos. everyone should do this. it will bring people together and it will give us all something do and look at. oh shit, read the rest of this post if you don't understand what i just wrote. if you are a famous internet author, do it, if you are just starting a blog, do it, if you are on your deathbed do it. are you doing the dishes right now? do it. (please)

hi. i sent out the promotional poetry manuscripts to the people who emailed barry. and then right after i mailed them out i panicked about how shitty the manuscript was so i ran home and changed it entirely. i apologize to the people who will get them this week. sorry robb, dmitriy, tracy and elise. i have really bad neuroses. i changed everything. i feel better now. every day is controlled by the neuroses until like two seconds before i fall asleep when i feel like a peaceful rock. i don't know why i do the shit but i know i have to do it. when i was really young, if like my arm hit against the wall when i was walking by, i had to turn around and hit the other arm too. i repeat different word-associations in my head all day. i used to have an elaborate system for checking underneath my bed every night. i wish i could explode on command. i'd turn to someone at the library and go "toodle-oo." then explode. i have an idea. a while ago someone's mom read a poem of mine. barry recently sent me a video of his daughter reading something too. the idea is this. i feel good about the idea. i want to email people sections from the poetry book, now called FROWNS NEEDS FRIENDS TOO, and then i want people to record themselves or someone else reading them. then eventually, if i get a lot of them, i will edit them all together into a short movie kind of thing. if you see a homeless man, record him reading one. if your friend is on drugs, if you are on drugs, record him her or you reading. if you have kids, record them reading a poem. stand in a forest and record yourself reading one. bury yourself in a pile of clothes except for your head and arms and read a poem. i think the project will be nice to look at if people actually do it. email me with your idea and i will select a poem to send you. if you don't want to do it, that's cool, but i think it will be nice. thanks. bye.

if elise is me, I did not get it anyway. Just the book. If elise is not me, then screw you other elise, and choke.

blake, you racist bastard.

elise, yes i sent you the manuscript yesterday. the man at the post office told me it should be at your place by thursday or friday. sorry it sucks, but i think it's ok now. i have self-competition issues because everyone used to degrade me.

I can't get it to send or post or anything. it's "too big"? anyway, i haven't totally given up. i think you'd like them.

i would enjoy getting blackout drunk on whiskey and reading a poem while rollerskating down a steep hill at night. if this is not a good enough idea, please get back to me and i will revise it.

I would like to read one of your poems while I am bathing & eating cauliflower.

michelle, email me and tell me what you will be doing. if you will be bathing and eating cauliflower that is good. i will then send you a poem. thank you.

:lights cross my face dramatically:

:i look at the sunset and cry a single tear but then suck it up through my nose:

:i look into the camera and make a face that says '...totally':
