Episode 27: Last Supper of Puppies

This week Ed takes John on a tour of the latchhook art in his house; then they discuss John's recent essay on Salon.com suggesting that contemporary literature is boring, and that young writers should read less of it, and watch more TV instead. Also, John talks about feeling sentimental after a rock show, and Ed describes his dream wherein a statue is erected in honor of his failure and he is called an "untalented blimp." Follow links to John's essay, Walter de Maria's "Meaningless Work", The Comedy, Bennett Sims'sA Questionable Shape, and NoViolet Bulawayo's We Need New Names.
