new things

well, i would have posted about it sooner, but i wanted to break it to my boss first. i'm moving to chicago on jan 1st. betsy and i will adventure to the "big city" to hopefully give our lives some class, excitement and perpsective. yes, that does mean i'm doing this by myself, sans H. that's not my choice, but i have to keep on living as best as i can. chicago seems to be the next step.

so i'm busy shuffling around the office, making sure i have everything in order, making sure my boss doesnt freak out, making sure we hire the right person to replace me. i'm also busy trying to find time with B to get an apartment and arrange my own resume & job search.

if anyone knows of shweet places to apply to in the windy city, let me know. if anyone knows about someone who needs a job and is patient and and devoted to the arts community in the twin cities, let me know.

friends in MN, i'm sad to go. friends in IL, i'm happy to come. friends everwhere else - i'll still keep my blog! ;o)

Talk to Joey Horstman, I seem to remember he got his start working with Richard Jones who publishes Poetry East out of Chicago.

If you were on Friendster I could connect you to some people I know who may have some Chicago connections.

Well, as you'll no doubt see, my picture is an old black and white of a 19th cent. British Prime Minister modified to look as if it came from a Belle and Sebastian CD cover.

At the risk of sounding dumb - what is friendster?

Well, probably the best answer in pointing your browser to It's a sort of a networking site based on the six degrees of seperation premise that you have friends and they have friends and it sort of goes from there. The ultimate point is somewhat unclear but all the cool kids are doing it.

personally, i find friendster annoying. its slow and you cant really do much with it. but a lot of people are on it, so its a good way to stay in touch if you're not an insane emailer, such as myself.
