The poets are speaking out, and for
those unaware of recent events, one such reading was rushed together in
replacement of a gathering to be held at the White House after it was discovered
that some of the invited poets had been planning on reading poetry that opposed
war. So now the Bush administration
has even resorted to silencing the poets, but not to worry. To find out more about similar events being organized across
the nation, or to learn more about the aforesaid events, visit the link below.
MAP (The Museum of American
Poetics) is an actual virtual museum that functions online.
This site is truly amazing. Composed
of poets, students, teachers, scholars, editors, publishers, literary centers
and web designers, this unique group has come together to fashion an invaluable
experience on the Internet. This
site is great for anyone who has even the remotest interest in poetry, and we
cannot say enough about. Watch the
actual poets reciting their works, learn about them or just sit back and enjoy
the benefits of poetry. Click on
the link below to see the tremendous amount of effort that has gone into the
making of MAP.
Louisville Beach is a great, little
webzine which seems to serve as its purpose, the purpose of enlightenment.
Dedicated to poetry, literary endeavors and all other creative and
sporadic fulfillments, this site is a place of inspiration – or as it states
– a webzine for the literary renaissance.
Here is a great site for writers and aspiring writers.
There are a number of great books tantalizingly set to the side of the
page for the avid reader. And for
those who long for that general fix of the divine present in the word, or just
the quick rub of its sanctity, here is where you will find it.
Mike Farahay is truly a poet
because he loves to write poetry for the expressed love of it, and this comes
across in his poems. Mike is also a
regular contributor to The Blacklisted Journalist, so if his name sounds
familiar it is probably because you have already read some of his work.
His style is one of resolute optimism and beauty, love of nature and a
refined spirit. Great poetry evokes
great and subtle feelings of wisdom, joy and an interaction with the breathing
world around us, and this is what Mike does.
He is a great poet, as well as a person who loves to inspire those around
us. His work is a celebration in a
humble voice, and I am always humbled to read it. If you love poetry, visit Mike’s site and you will see what
exactly what I mean.
This is a great site.
Michael Dare’s weekly newsletter combines the week’s latest news with
a twist of humor, wit, biting sarcasm and a penchant for satire.
Honestly, Dare does a tremendous job of compiling news articles from all
across the net and delivering it to his readers with the punch of a dissident
reporter. Though this site is dripping with humorous jabs and right
hooks, the bottom line is that the reader is probably more apt to find more
truth here than in the nightly news.
Larry Flynt is not just for the
average pornographic coinsurer. He
has long been active in politics, and Larry does a good job running this site.
He is a man who is as patriotic as any other, as well as on top of
things. Larry always finds
important stories to post on his site, as well as compiling an impressive
archive. Check out Larry’s site
From The Wilderness is another great
political site. There are a myriad
of articles, and though you must pay to read certain articles, the majority of
the headlines can be read for free.
The Vines are without any doubt one
of the greatest bands to come out within the last few years.
Oscillating between a loud, raucous sound and then at time more dreamy
and melodic, The Vines are a musically talented mixture of something between The
Beatles and Nirvana. Here is a disc
that is a must for any appreciative rock fan.
