Today’s story is about a time when one of my teachers was removed from the classroom. Students versus Teachers – My experience tells the tale of driving teachers insane. Spoiler: In real life, it’s nowhere near as funny as when Bart Simpson does it.
This new poem, Panem et Circenses (Iterum), all came out pretty much last Friday night as the Raptors basketball team out of Toronto won some championship or other. People cheering “We the North” and generally losing their minds. Sports go sports! [rolls eyes]. Anyhow, it’s new poetry, and in the next day or so I’ll post it to Instagram, do an audio clip with the words on YouTube, and update this post with links.
New poem by Evan Kayne, and a book review
This morning I was reading a collection of Pablo Neruda poetry. Something clicked in me. So I wrote a quick poem titled “I Do All This” under Library of Stories. It will also be available on Instagram, Facebook, and maybe later on YouTube.
As well, following after it is a review I did on The Inheritance of Shame by Peter Gajdics...you can also see this review at Good Reads…which I would link to, but as they won’t let me link directly to my review, here’s the link to it on my site.
Today just a photo shoved under Multimedia, but if you ever wonder what the red squiggly lines are when you’re typing in most programs, this picture is for you. Learn it, love it.
Also – a YouTube link to a video I made years at a the Calgary Comic Expo, if you need a short laugh. And a warning about the dangers of Parrot Snorfling!
Under Library of Stories, read How to Feed Your Monsters. It’s a short and hopefully funny story about the dining habits of closet monsters.
Today in Library of Stories, I’ve posted a CBC radio podcast discussing Masculinity and Indigenous Men. I’ve also included My personal thoughts on masculinity as a gay man, an aboriginal, and how that intersects with masculinity.
Hey. Go to my Multimedia page to see the results of tea chemistry and also some poetry/random thoughts.
Considering we’re coming out of Winter, under Library of Stories there’s a nice little flash fiction about a conversation between a father and his daughter: When Winter Arrives.
Other Works are kind of a mixed bag. I’ve got links to past articles I’ve published, ideas from other people I’ve found interesting, and just stuff which don’t fit in the Library or in Multimedia.
And last nights…so added a few old stories under Library of Stories and under Multimedia I added my thoughts as to Disney/Marvel using the late Stan Lee’s Twitter account to promote Captain Marvel…and how well that seems to be going. (Spoiler: It’s not, it’s tacky, and there was a better more respectful way to do it…but no doubt some Marketing a-hole thought it was an awesome idea because any publicity=good publicity).
