The Revolution is what will happen when we all decide we have had enough. It is still not completely clear what it is that we will have had enough of, but when it happens we will know. It will be obvious.
What happens when 'The Revolution' comes?
We will all hold up our swords and shields to the glowing golden orb in the sky and call for justice. There, before the pounding sun we will join together in one throbbing mass and destroy every semblence of evil put before us. As suggested previously, we will not know what form this evil will take until it manifests itself. It would be best if you prepared yourself for having to fight against everything from 20ft tall bankers and hoards of rabid babies through to microbacteria and abstract notions such as time and love.
How do I sign up for 'The Revolution'?
At the Tower Of London you will find a small leather bound book hidden behind a loose block in the east wall. There you must sign your name in the blood of a freshly slaughtered lamb (sorry, but there will be no use for squeamish vegetariansin The Revolution) after which you will be issued with your sword and armour. For further directions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the likely outcome of 'The Revolution'?
You will probably die. The fact you felt the need to consult this FAQ shows that you lack the true spirit required to successfully survive The Revolution. The rest of us will drink to your memory.

A story I made called 'Leslie Joseph is a Monster' is up on the Pygmy Giant. Check it.
I read and blurb'd Crispin Best's new joint called Go Ninja Go Ninja Go. It is based on the film Beverly Hill's Ninja starring the late, great Chris Farley.
I wish I had something else to say.
I would like it if someone gave me a reason to do something soon.

Name and slogan for strip club: S. Sex Girls (the 'S' stands for SEX!)
I was going to write a story or poem and the first line was going to be "If you read this to the end you will go blind" but then I decided not to because the only things I could write after that were really dumb. If someone wants to use that line as the first line of a poem or story then that would make me feel good about myself and I would be happy to read it. (An example of other lines "I love you, I think you are fucking stupid." See what I mean?)
I want to do a set of Daniel Johnston songs at my next show and maybe I will just not mention that they are Daniel Johnston songs and when people come up after the show and say "Chris your new songs are really nice and sad, thank you for writing them with your brain" I will just respond politely and fail to point out the truth.
I want to go on holiday or something. Everyone I know is preparing to go away somewhere or has just gone away or is doing something special and I feel like I am not clever enough or urgent enough to get these things done and come up with plans of my own. I am happy that everyone else is good at these things and that they are Living Their Fucking Lives To The Max but it also makes me sad that I am not. My brother's band is on tour. Whatever. No, not whatever. I could maybe do a tour of my own if I was willing to put the effort in. People are going on holiday and I could easily do that, really easily. Last time I went away, which was not too long ago, I had to be prompted to do it and my friend found the hotel for me and also told me when to go. I will go away somewhere in the summer, but someone else will organise everything for me.
It is my birthday 1 month from today. Please ask for an address to send cards and gifts to.

it is on the thing called For Every Year
(which is 'noble' and ambitious and that's why I love you)
Greg Lytle made the following video to accompany Kathryn Regina's forthcoming chapbook
it is a bit special, you should watch it 3 times in a row at least
I really enjoyed this thing what Ani Smith has written
she uses the word 'splotchy' which feels either perfect or ridiculous or ridiculously perfect (ha)
This afternoon I made a 'cake' using a lot of MANGO
Too much MANGO
The MANGO stopped the cake from being a cake
Now what I have is
It tastes nice
(would you like some?)
But it looks really really weird.

Crispin Best made a video review of the book called IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO MAKE A MISTAKE and you can go watch it here.
Brandi Wells 'published' one of my poems on her high-content, low-quality blog called Brandi Wells' Review, read it here.
Go read Ryan Manning's thing on PANGUR BAN PARTY. It is 'tip top'.
