A Little Bit of Hobart…Daily

Hobart, that rad rad print journal, has tossed more zoom into their online doings. About a month ago, they switched to daily content, some of that same old goodness like fiction and interviews, with new woot-worthy stuff like poetry, food and drink reviews, and movie reviews. A month into this thing, I’m really stoked about how it has expanded, where it is heading. Maybe you will be too?!

My favorite stuff so far:

Three Words I Learned From Video Games by Devan Goldstein
from “Sentry”

The important thing is that Pete, the kid who gave me the game, pronounced robots like the name “Robitz” might be pronounced, if it were a name, and I just hated him for it, and we weren’t friends after that as far as I know.

Two Poems by Ben Clark and Colin Winnette
from “witness”

I only think to ask you about dying because I saw the reflected light
as something else. I can tell you would say to carve this new strange light into trains
crossing slow and close enough to shake the dead dusty moths
on the ledge of my window.

An Advanced Amateur Reviews Pabst Blue Ribbon-A Beer Fit For Human Beings by Mike Bezemek

A massive plaster moon rotates above the rooftop bar, casting a milky glow over my fellow patrons. One by one their orders are placed. A vanilla bean porter with toasted nut highlights. A zwickel-style lager. A Cascade dry-hopped American pale ale. A cleanly malted and sharply hopped Czech-inspired pilsner. A cloudy hefeweizen with a hint of coriander and a tangerine wedge. When it’s my turn, however, I settle into my stool, look the bartender dead in the eyes, and ask for a good ol’ cool-my-throat, warm-my-insides, and thicken-my-wallet Pabst Blue Ribbon. Soon it flows smooth as a gentle breeze over my tongue, and, in this most idyllic of moments, I realize that after much deliberation and fifteen years of field testing, I am ready to officially and heartily recommend Pabst Blue Ribbon as perfectly fit for human consumption.

Thanks, VOUCHED!!

Little kids tried to touch me, but their mothers held them back. I took shits wherever I wanted, drank water from the gutters when it rained. I ate trash when it looked good. I started to feel better.

“Hannah had a near-death kind of experience right around the time I knew him and he told us that he found Jesus in that time. I think I remember him saying that Jesus actually came into to the hospital and sat with him. He wrote in one of my books: ‘Christ is the strength that you do not have to pray for. Thereness, my lass.’”

The fist installment of a new interview series I’m doing at The Lit Pub.

For this series I’m asking the writers I love to recommend a book. If I haven’t read it, I read it. Then we talk about it.

In this installment, I’m talking with Amelia Gray about Airships by Barry Hannah.

I like this idea. And this interview in particular. And these people (Hobart 14 & 13 contribs, what-what!)

I’m sure writing is therapeutic for many writers but I think there’s a lot more than that going on here. This is a book about how strength is forged and how sometimes, we cannot help but succumb to our weaknesses.

The second installment of a new interview series I’m doing at The Lit Pub.

For this series I’m asking the writers I love to recommend a book. If I haven’t read it, I read it. Then we talk about it.

In this installment, I’m talking with Roxane Gay about Claire Vaye Watkins’s Battleborn.

Previously, I spoke with Amelia Gray about Barry Hannah’s Airships.

Colin Winnette & Roxane Gay & Claire Vaye Watkins (& previously Amelia Gray)!! It’s almost like too much Hobart goodness all up over this awesome interview series.

"I’ve set aside some money in the past few months, with no plans for how to spend it. Feels comforting and appropriate, but I also worry I’m not living as fully as I could be. Concerned that I will not be around forever. Who will the money go to? Who will benefit from my savings if my time on this earth is abruptly terminated?"

Selected Entries from The Daily Log of Personal to Professional Proceedings by Saul Goodman

I wrote some fan fiction for Hobart because they’re awesome.
