Recorded August 23, 2009
The second of three performances recorded on handheld cassette in the basement of Dr Who's Warehouse of Ideas. Poetry reading as the main event for a show! This was following the release of Linh Dinh's sixth book, "Some Kind of Cheese Orgy." He was also promoting his photoblog State of the Union, a visual commentary on our current state of depression. The picture of El is a Sound of Joy in my previous post is from his blog. Give it to Brooks Johnson and the folks at Dr Who's for instilling culture into us heathens.
"Imagine a concoction that mixes Shakespeare's Falstaff and Celine's Bardum, frank, rollicking humor and hair raising disgust. After adding fish sauce, a smelly cheese and sexual sweat, shake vigorously. Out of the bottle rises Linh Dinh. God talks to him and he talks about everything, including the body parts that Renaissance painters left out. No one does it better." - John Yau
