[WTC_Bookclub: Saul_Williams's_She]

Guess what, kids! My copy of She has arrived. Who's in, who's ready to read, and how long do you guys think it will take you to be ready to rumble on a book thread?

A quick look over tells me that we're in for a treat. In fact, here's a sample that I especially liked:

they say
that i am a poet

i wonder what
they would say
if they saw me
from the inside

i bottle
emotions
and place them
into the sea
for others
to unbottle
on distant shores

i am unsure
as to whether
they ever reach
and for that matter
as to whether
i ever get
my point
across

or my love

Yeah, Saul. I know what you mean, man.

Excellent! I'm so glad it arrived safely and promptly. My copy is waiting for me at the bookstore...I'll probably pick it up tomorrow...whenever I'll get a spare second to read it is another question, but it's not like it's a dense novel or anything.

Rock! I guess I'll get to reading, then.

I waste
my time
saying things
that are obvious
and putting them
in stilted form
so they seem to have meaning.

groceries
are haunting
cured meats
and cheese
taste better
than tofu
but they make
my belly
ache.

aren't
i impressive?
i know i sure
think i'm grand.
i think i
will talk about
bubble gum now
over some of
my beats
that's the way i roll

and i don't mean
the green
nucca.

Gabriel, you are so wrong. Fuck you.

Posted by: Dierdre | Jun 15, 2006 11:14:45 PM

Gabriel
shows up intermittently
to talk
out of
his
ass.

Bitchy boy.
He gives my
worst PMS a
run for
its
money.

Cured meats
got
you
down.
Perhaps your judgmental
tongue
would be better suited
for lamb fries.

Blanch
Strip
Drain
Dry. Bread. Fry

In other words,
Eat Balls
Gabe.

i need to visit this site more often. i miss it dearly.

that piece of writing is beautiful -- the responses are sub-par, though.

perhaps this isn't the right place to say the following, but i'm gonna, anyways.

bauhaus suck. really badly. worst live act i've ever seen. hands-down.

Random of me, but if you haven't heard about the spitting incident at Camden the other night, here's a vid of 'Get Down, Make Love', complete with Trent's reaction:

Yeah I watched that last night. It's about 2 minutes into the video that he "addresses the situation". What the hell is wrong with people? Easier to point and click then to copy and paste.

Posted by: Iris | Jun 16, 2006 11:58:51 AM

There's lots of YouTube stuff I have to check out on here.

Ugh, spitting? WTF? I was reading on ETS that Trent thought it was some hardcore fangirl doing it, but it was probably some guy behind her...nutty.

I'm on the verge of making some blanket statement about the hopelessness of the human race.

Posted by: maise | Jun 16, 2006 11:59:40 AM

Thanks Iris, I forgot to do the wonderful HTML.

Anywho, it was a guy, and he got beat up by the girl who may or may not have been mistaken as the spitter. Let's just hope that Trent knew it was the guy near her... that way his comment is even more of a burn.

Posted by: Kim | Jun 16, 2006 12:03:33 PM

Ladies and gentlemen, no matter how tempting it might be to *exchange* saliva with Trent Reznor, that's not the same as spitting at him. Typically people do not welcome unsolicited saliva.

Posted by: maise | Jun 16, 2006 12:03:56 PM

If Trent thought that I was spitting on him or doing anything as egregiously offensive, when it was actually some dickhead behind me, I would be *beside myself.*

Posted by: maise | Jun 16, 2006 12:07:54 PM

She was very upset about it, because she said Trent looked right at her when he telling off the spitter... which would indicate he thought it was her (if he was truly looking at her).

Someone got some ok video of Non-Entity at Camden as well, which is a big yay for me. I love the light show for it.

Posted by: Kim | Jun 16, 2006 12:14:41 PM

And you can see one of the panels flickering in and out, thanks to Aaron. I'm glad it wasn't messed up at my show. LOL.

Posted by: Kim | Jun 16, 2006 12:16:44 PM

Hey Kelby Lee! You're a fucking idiot!

Thanks for revealing what terrible taste you have. And, by extension, reinforcing how lame Saul Williams is. I mean, cause if YOU like him, he MUST suck...

Posted by: Gabriel | Jun 16, 2006 12:51:44 PM

You know what we need? Some sort of competitive poetry slam. Saul Williams vs. Gabriel Miller and his Words of Misery.

Posted by: maise | Jun 16, 2006 1:00:54 PM

Why? You want Saul to embarass himself even further?

Kicking poetry
ass is my
business and
business
is good
BITCHES.

Posted by: Gabriel | Jun 16, 2006 5:31:37 PM

Ugh I hate my computer. I couldn't view that video. The Camden one. I am sure it would have been worth while. I hope he performs it when he comes to hartford and I hope I don't have any dickheads sitting next to me doing something stupid like that. Trent does have a penetrating stare I think I imagined it but I thought he was looking at me at the last concert I was at. Oh well call me psychotic.

Gabriel,
You sure do beat the shit
out of poesy.
I won't deny you
that claim.
In some states,
it would
constitute aggravated
battery.

Posted by: maise | Jun 17, 2006 1:01:19 AM

i think you
meant ass
ault
and battery

Posted by: Gabriel | Jun 17, 2006 1:54:40 AM

Ok, I have to admit that that one cracked my shit up.

Posted by: Dierdre | Jun 17, 2006 2:17:59 AM

"Spit on me again and I'm gonna rip your fucking cunt off" is definitely going to be my new motto.

I can't believe how hard I'm laughing right now.

Posted by: Jane | Jun 17, 2006 2:22:20 AM

Seriously: Trent's a poet, and he doesn't even know it! I only had to help him out a little tiny bit, but I stayed in character.

I'm sure he wouldn't mind...

A Message to Some Disrespectful Bitch
a haiku by Trent Reznor & Jane

Fucking spit on me
again and I'm gonna rip
your fucking cunt off

Posted by: Jane | Jun 17, 2006 3:24:27 AM

I think he added a "cocksucker" a second or two later, also.

Several people have decided that now would be a good time to admit that Trent scares them. Hah.

Sure... I'd probably run if I pissed him off. Not 'cause I'm scared of him, but because I wouldn't want to be in pain for a week or ten.
