Re: “Marcus Amaker talks about being Charleston's first poet laureate

Prong - his work is actually in a quite a few published works, available in national bookstores on online journals. His bio has some of that info, but you can check
* Illuminations, from the CofC english department
* Home Is Where: An Anthology of African American Poetry from the Carolinas
* My South: A People, A Place, A World of Its Own
* Charleston Salt and Iron
* Charleston Currents (online)
* PBS Newshour

Enjoy.

Re: “Marcus Amaker talks about being Charleston's first poet laureate

All of those poems are self-published on a blog. None of them were submitted for publication at an editor's discretion.

Thanks for the link, though. I look forward to perusing them at some point.

Re: “Marcus Amaker talks about being Charleston's first poet laureate

Where can one find Mr. Amaker's published work (in journals or online journals)?

I'm very curious to read it, as he seems an extremely engaging fellow.

Re: “The Sick of Stupid comedy tour takes on Southern stereotypes

"In a typical set on the Sick of Stupid tour, you'll probably hear Huff talk about the person who told him science has never done anything for anyone . . . while the two of them were sitting on an airplane."

"Cash says the point of this tour is to serve as an antithesis to shows like Blue Collar Comedy tour. 'It was wildly successful, and I respect that, but I think ***it serves to perpetuate negative Southern stereotypes,***' he says."

This is like that part of the Old Testament where one verse directly contradicts the previous one, yet it's still somehow the infallible word of God or something.

Re: “Sommore is a proud student of the University of YouTube

TOQC is one of the great stand-up specials of all times. It completely blows its male counterpart out of the water. Sommore crushed her set then and it is still funny as hell.

Re: “Q&A: There's no toning down Amy Schumer

Did I really just read a SPAM post about a witch doctor's treatments? I'm not even going to flag that one... fortune favors the bold.

First: Professional writer Kinsey Gidick, "Turrets-like outbursts" is cannon fire from a tank when I'm almost positive you mean to refer to Tourette syndrome.

Second: I'd also be nervous as hell going into an interview with Amy Schumer. She's completely hit her stride and someone with such a knack for satire and the judgment of others that requires would be really imposing. "Last Fuckable Day" is up there with Chappelle's "Black White Supremacist."

Pete Campbell was played by Vincent Kartheiser on Mad Men. Also, I love Amy, but she's a size 6 like Kate Moss is a size 14.

Re: “Charleston’s permaculture movement arrives at the drafting table

A very interesting approach, could even say it's innovative. I really like the initial idea of taking care of your food mainly through gardening and farming. Interesting article, please keep us posted.

Re: “Welcome to Night Vale brings its suburban strangeness to the stage

I think just narrating what goes on in most suburbs in the real world would actually be more disturbing...

Re: “Charleston’s permaculture movement arrives at the drafting table

Pronghorn, there are some examples through history that shows rammed earth being sustainable and structurally sound through flood events. after all, this method is 7,000 years old! my personal feeling is that a traditional stud wall system is pretty much ruined with any amount of flooding, we are seeing this now up in Columbia area from the October flood event. A Rammed Earth wall system would out-perform a stud wall system in a flood event hands down. The walls are incredibly durable and strong. I have samples which have been sitting in direct rain and flood events in my back yard for 2 years now and have not flaked, cracked, broken apart, etc. While I wouldn't go so far to call anything 'perfect', I think Rammed Earth solves many of our housing problems here in the Lowcountry, including rot, mold, termites, and moisture problems. We will plan some house tours for the public once it's complete. I think once you can feel the walls in person you'll feel confident; hard as rock! Cheers! April

Re: “Charleston’s permaculture movement arrives at the drafting table

This is absolutely fantastic.

I'm not wholly convinced that the walls would retain their structural integrity if floodwaters receded, though. I might be mistaken -- and correct me if I'm wrong -- but if those walls sat in, say, 2-4 feet of water for a few days, then y'all think they'd be "exactly the same structure" after the water receded? Now, compound it with all the storms and floods over years.

That's my only concern in the Lowcountry with this. Otherwise, I'm all about it.
