happy 2007 and what better way to start off the year than with a photo of marie osmond? (follow links below to a reference point.)
if you've spent any time listening to the sound poetry at ubuweb, you'll especially appreciate this interview (produced by curtis fox productions for the poetryfoundation.org podcast) with ubu's founder kenneth goldsmith, who reveals some of his favorite selections and explains some of the history behind how the archive began and continues to grow.
and while you're at it, give a listen to kenny's session from the 2006 TCF Conference - the only presentation that sent people fleeing from the room both in horror and ecstasy. It was brilliant.
p.s. you should check out the interview even if you have no idea what ubuweb is.
