I Got the Internet Going Nuts
July 2, 2012 § Leave a comment
I’m taking a break from writing about literature and humor this week because I spent all my budgeted blogtime working on this guest post for my good buddy Satish Jayaraj’s blog, Our Business is to Create. It’s the blogging arm of Innocent Offeriongs, an awesome Twin Cities literary community powerhouse known for their exciting readings and beautiful broadsides and chapbooks. I was lucky enough to participate in the latest installment of their Cracked Walnut Reading Series, which led me to ruminate on the connection between literary readings and potluck dinners.
(By the way, that’s why I called the post “I Got the Internet Going Nuts.” You get it, right? Cracked Walnut. Walnut. Wall Nuts. You see where I’m going. Paul Wall‘s 2005 Swishahouse classic: “Internet Going Nutz.” Really, nothing? You people are philistines.)
Next week, though, I’ll be back with the thrilling conclusion to our discussion of humor and subtext. See you then!
