Hobart :: 2 Poems

triumphant-moogle:

got two poems up on hobart

You can smell the asbestos most
in the gym, steeped in pools
of murky water in the pitch-black, a stage
upon which we set the booze,
our floodlight brightening the back wall.

Hobart :: Reflecting On My First Year Of Sobriety

fast-machine:

my friend jordan castro has one year sober today. 

I had my bags packed and was getting ready to leave with two insane-seeming girls who offered me sex in exchange for a ride to Cleveland when a few patients stopped me and essentially pushed me into the lecture hall. I don’t know why I didn’t put up more of a fight - maybe because I didn’t actually want to leave, maybe I was just too tired - but I’m glad I didn’t. I began to understand and appreciate the value of friends, the importance of having people around me who’d tell me when I was fucking up, and the value of listening to them. The thought of leaving became increasingly fleeting, and I started doing the things that people were telling me to do.

Wie ein tragisch-guter Popsong (neues deutschland)

fast-machine:

reviews of my book in germany never fail to amuse me. with (translated) lines like:

She is blond, posing on their authorship photos like scantily clad on an impossible, because petty bourgeois furniture, standing on rock music, and David Foster Wallace.

and

And this book is the real, not always funny, but overall very impressive answer to the “Hunger Games”, if you will. True literature from real life.

so my furniture is bourgeois? lol. alright, germany. i get it. i’m white trash. as you keep saying. to my amusement and endearment. white trash til death, bb.

It’s as though Bud Selig consulted with R. A. Dickey on the development of his knuckleball, offering to change the elevation of the mound to showcase its effects.

Big Air - The New Yorker (via aaronburch)

full para:

Talking to Reed also made me realize how stage-managed and, in some senses, artificial the X Games’ vaunted progression can be. One of the signature achievements, on a par with Tony Hawk’s 900, was Travis Pastrana’s double backflip, on a motorcycle, in 2006. “Travis was like, ‘Oh, I need the ramp set up like this,’ ” Reed recalled, explaining that part of his job was to be in regular touch with the show’s talent, to find out what the stars are working on, and to incorporate as much potential for iconic moments into the event program, whether by tweaking the rules or the format. This year, he’d added a quarter-pipe to the freestyle motocross course, at the suggestion of a French rider named Thomas Pagès, who planned to perform a “bike flip”—that is, the bike would rotate in his hands while his head and torso remained still. “We try to make sure we build and position everything, so that they can come in and perform what they want to do,” Reed said. “We like to think we’re good at producing what the athletes are doing.” It’s as though Bud Selig consulted with R. A. Dickey on the development of his knuckleball, offering to change the elevation of the mound to showcase its effects.
