From the L7 Official Facebook page: L7 in another filthy dressing room somewhere in Europe, 11/23/94. A pineapple and a plate of butter were mysteriously on our rider that night.

I haven’t been on my personal tumblr much lately but I have to say - I loved this conversation, and not just because Ivan is a dear friend of mine who I’ve been having great conversations with for years now about race, books, online marketing for the books we love, and so much more.
We’re 3 episodes in now at MiP and have some great guests coming up, including a bookstore owner, a roundtable on those publishing certificate programs with 2 POC who went through them, editors, and much more. Subscribe to us on iTunes! 

Some invaluable conversations going on here about minorities in publishing, very relevant to recent discussions about the whiteness of the literary world.

[High School kids] should stop reading Bukowski, and they should stop listening to people who tell them to read Bukowski.
— Nick Cave (Rolling Stone, August 1994)

Art’s best and darkest provocateurs have a certain unexpected vulnerability about them. It comes, I think, from their honesty about the human condition — from the risk inherent in standing up and saying, “Yes, I do think it’s as bad as all that,” even if the statement is hidden in poetry or fantasy or metaphor. Even if it means commercial suicide. There’s an earnestness to doing this, and a subtle indictment of the billions of us laboring under illusions (or trying to forget the reality) of how things are. Smarm is a kind of armor; even snark is a way of using humor to defuse horror. Boundary-busting artists from Jean Genet to Lars von Trier to Catherine Breillat to, most recently, Emma Sulkowicz don’t hide behind either. In their bleakness, they lay themselves bare.
Reviewed Abel Ferrara’s ‘Pasolini’ and, in the process, finally made some progress on understanding my lifelong love for really dark, fucked-up art, especially on film, and the people who make it…
