"The music has brought tears to our eyes
The artless music has cramped our chests,
As it has swollen the grave and joyous circle out again
Sing! Sing! Sing! Tenoras and clarinets
And through the eyes of the shops and through the sea
The tenora cut through the night and its dust
Twangy, like bursts of glass
The dance warbles nobly with merry foot trimmings"

o Bob Holman of The Bowery Poetry Club [near where CBGBs used to be
located 308 Bowery, NYC 10012 o 212.614.0505] writes: Dear Friends of
Bowery,These weekly eblasts contain a lot of the flavor, variety and
depth of programming that is the hallmark of the Bowery Poetry Club--
[WTM: Do I sense the beginning of the end. Did I pour my
Bukowski-sized contribution into a bottomless hole of fighting 'the
man'? I sense that the encroaching land barons have sniffed the
perfume that lies under the garbage of the Bowery and are busy
transforming it into a Disney mall simulacrum so that those with
money can live surrounded by drive-by bums and dine where the
homeless still believe they live but haven't for years. You can
sense/see the changes. They are palpable. It is never pretty when NY
decides to clean up a hood. It is never FOR the locals, the people
and ALWAYS for those who do not yet live there but would like to and
won't until NY is made-over in their own bland images.]
This week, for example, Bernadette Mayer reads her amazing
book-length poem, Midwinter Day, in front of her sister Rosemary's
drawings of Beowulf 4-time National Poetry Slam Champ Patricia Smith
raises the roof with her stratospheric sound surfing learn to be
part of a Poets' Symphony with maestro Edwin Torres on the baton
celebrate new books by Samuel Menashe, Bob Holman, and Keith Waldrop

midnite jazz jam

o Vegetarians Smarter: The British Medical Journal reports that if
your 10-yr old has an above avg. IQ he is 40% more likley to be a
vegetarian at age 30. For females the percentage is even higher.
o Being a vegetarian I find it important to read reports like that
because just a week ago I reported [and believed] the following:
"Women talk three times as much as men. This can be looked at from 2
[if not more] angles. Either women talk too much [21,000 words per
day] or men don't talk enough [7,000 words]. Maybe words help us
negotiate a world otherwise hostile and impregnable. 95% of all
people in prison are men. Nuff said?"
o Musician Phil Hargreaves <phil@...> whi music:
<www.whi-music.co.uk >. "Actually, the author who wrote this (and was
then widely reported throughout the world) has admitted that it was a
made up statistic. men and women talk about the same these days."
Great made up statistic because as soon as I told others they and I
both came up with many examples of where it was true [not in my
relationship however] and why etc. Thus reality was busy fitting into
a fake statistic.
o Flanders Recently [Did Not] Secede From Belgium Dec. 14, 2006:
Belgians everywhere reacted with shock panicked surprised upset alarm
- or something like that - to the "Orsonwellsian" news that Flanders
was breaking away from Belgium. Belgian public television station
French-language RTBF interrupted regular programming to announce that
the Dutch-speaking part of the nation had unilaterally declared its
independence. The station later claimed to have issued the report to
stir up some dialogue. Images showed proud Flems waving their flag,
annoyed Belgians, and traffic-jam celebrations as the nation
contemplated its new border.
The Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt denounced it as "very bad Orson
Welles" Referring to Welles' famous 1938 "War of the Worlds" that
fooled millions of Americans into believing the earth had been
invaded by Martians. The BBC reported: "The station's website crashed
briefly as alarmed viewers sought more information, and 2,600 calls
were made to a telephone number given out during the spoof.
"Our intention was to show Belgian viewers the intensity of the issue
of the future of Belgium and the real possibility of Belgium no
longer being a country in a few months," Yves Thiran, head of news at
RTBF, told the BBC. He said it introduced people to the debate who
would otherwise have ignored it, but he admitted some may have taken
it the wrong way.
"We obviously scared many people - maybe more than we expected," he
said. Some politicians were in on the joke, contributing interviews
to the programme with their reactions to the "news". But others were
not amused. The minister for audiovisual affairs for the
French-speaking community, Fadila Laanan, said the words "this is
fiction" appeared on screen half an hour into the broadcast - at her
"I find it questionable to use such a tactic, which frightened people
unbelievably," she said, adding that a number of people had called
her in panic when the "news" broke.
The AFP news agency reported that even some foreign ambassadors in
Brussels were taken in, and sent urgent messages back to their
