blood soap blogs booyah
Blood and Soap
A collection of short stories (several of which are one sentence long) by Linh Dinh is a gem. At times a combo of Borges (language lust), Calvino (Dinh is working on his first novel in Certaldo, Italy) and Barry Yourgrau (wacked out dreams as word craft). Ignore the first story, Prisoner with a Dictionary. The idea is clever, but its style does not match the others. It reads like a high school creative writing exercise. I'm glad I didn't stop reading at the beginning. Linh, what were you on?
How do you configure all these new modules like technorati tags, flickr photos, links, etc? Beats me. Instead, check out some of these:
+ EastSouthWestNorth current events asia
+ supernaut art/design
+ danwei media and advertising in china
+ design observer collaborative blog by some of the best creative critics
+ Vietnam Visual Arts art culture in vietnam
+ bay area love ♥ vn art design
+ tawalas vn language arts culture criticism
And check out the motherlode of arts inforamation for download at UBUWEB. In the sound section: Early radio to Fluxus, categories from Conceptual, Contemporary to Ethnopoetics. You can download historical art texts, speeches. This is an arts research goldmine.

your link to "+ tawalas vn language arts culture criticism" does not seem to be right.

royby - the link is correct however it is on the internet nanny list, more accurately, blocked by the national firewall. ask a friend outside of vn to click the link, it will work; or let's meet for coffee one of these days and i'll can let you in on a secret.
