The Lost ThySpace Blog of Jesus Jr
Share:FacebookTwitterLinkedinTumblrPrintSubject: Who’s your daddy? Had that nightmare again. I’m an infant. Mary Magdalene and Jesus Christ (A.K.A. Mom and Dad) are appearing before the tribunal of Maurypovitchus, debating my paternity. Dad’s friends are calling Mom a prostitute, a ho, a groupie, an “Apostle aid,” a frankincense-digger... Dad is just sitting there, turning the other cheek, which Mom calls “passive-aggressive.”

I Can Say Shit
Share:FacebookTwitterLinkedinTumblrPrintAuthor’s note: I recently wrote a first-grade level reader, to be published later this year. The publisher restricted me to a list of 126 words, as well as any word that could be constructed from a simple consonant-vowel-consonant combination. (Dr. Seuss’ The Cat In The Hat, by contrast, was written from a list of 223 words.)

Each translucent handbag belies its original function: revealing instead of concealing. Privacy is denied, allowing personal experience to become shared. Philadelphia artist, Jen Blazina makes memory tangible.
