Diary/Quote: Gary Snyder’s The Real Work

Rereading Gary Snyder’s “the real work – collected essays, interviews and speeches”

I’ve followed his instructions diligently over the past 15 years

Importantly:

For the two branches of literature—spoken and written—each has its own vocabulary, syntax, rhythm, style, affectations, patterns, pacing, punctuation, and canon. I always loved spoken literature. A good interview gave me as much pleasure as a well-written short story. So, from a young age, I learned how to write by transcribing what people said. I learned language by hearing it. Anything said by anyone could make it into my little notebook. Then I began writing what I said aloud, and I began to realize that if a writer took ownership of their words and published them alongside their poems and essays, they had a book, as valid as any other. This book could even be among their greatest works.

Are You Worthy? (Greeks to Geeks) – Prezo artifacts and notes

Analog stuff at WordCamp Whistler by Miss604

Whilst tidying, I gathered up snaps of the materials in my suitcase plus various archiving notes and artifacts used in “Are you Worthy? – Publishing from Greeks to Geeks” talk presented at Wordcamp Whistler, January 2000.

Audio/video/round-up and Are you Worthy transcription also available.

These are the bits leftover, yet worthy indeed – loosely organized and starting with me, on the city bus in Whistler with my suitcase full of secrets:

Step one: get on the bus with a suitcase
Checklist (unverified) of items in suitcase

Morning rainy trip from the North Shore

Observation …

Thick pineapple rain whipping
winds twisting leaves
and homeless blankets
wet while walking past
yellow in fleeting glances
holding breath for quarantine
peeking though humid windows

Thinking about …

Pinochet dying (Guardian Unlimited special report “From Tyrant to Arrest and Indictment”) – sometimes the evil ones live so long, 91 – so much blood on his hands (rumours of stadiums full of communist disappeared)and years of process means a lack of reasonable resolution and restitution

(Underrated hockey great) Bob Gainey’s daughter Laura swept off a ship – search continues … lo, the price of adventure (coulda been me or you) peace

Listening to …

Bicycle mark in Ljubljana, Slovenia on Austro-Hungarian empire and the historical role of the Balkans in creating war

BBC Iraq, squandered billions in reconstruction and lost opportunities, Saddam’s personal history, Afghanistan’s (un)reinvention process

Rick Steves in Prague, Slovenia, and former East Germany via podcast (Rick Steves’ podcast feed) talking philosophy and faux pas with Bernard-Henri Levy

Black Angels – Sniper at the gates of dawn (drone machine, psychedelic indie rock from Indiefeed (itunes) and/or KEXPin-studio RSS)

In the works …

Choogle on with Uncle Weed International Mail round up from a windy porch recorded and in production, Blazin’ in Japan on deck – music encoded, a few pieces to gather before production

Canucks Outsider – new episode (Canucks game day vs. Whalers/Hurricanes) and a few site upgrades (thanks Bread)

Postcards from Gravelly Beach – part 2 of the Jack Kerouac poetry stroll nears completion – more choruses from San Francisco blues while walking down the Mission – one more part after that and then onto Remembrance Day peace and war collection
