he has a picture that looks like if van gogh drew it

i found mike young’s email address by finding his blog first. don’t know how i found his blog but i did. i read some of the shit on mike young’s blog and was like ‘this is some good shit.’ then i sent mike young the above email. mike young replied: thank you peter bd! i am flattered. that was a cool thing for mike young to say. cool as hell
if you enjoy going on youtube (who doesn’t????), you can find videos of mike young reading some of his stuff. this is a good one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLt2bYB668k. saw this video and realized mike young is a legitimate writer. he writes legitimate things and reads them in front of legitimate crowds at legitimate readings. realized i lived in baltimore at the same time as mike young and could’ve attended one of these readings. baltimore needs to promote mike young’s readings. they need to do this in an aggression fashion.
this is why i want to read a good ass mike young book: if you’re not curious at all, you’re probably dead, which is interesting. we would like to hear from you dead folk. that’s probably some of the best literature i’ve ever read.

peterbd! thanks for such a comprehensive yearly checkup. i feel like you are a brilliant new style of dentist/PE coach booster combo.
really there are only two books to choose from right now, a book of poems and a book of stories, and you can get them both at the same time even from
the reading you linked to is actually from when i read in Shelburne Falls, MA, where there is a bridge made of flowers and where Bill Cosby lives.
i moved to Baltimore in September 2011 when my girlfriend Carolyn went to Thailand for seven months.
during that time i took the 35 bus a lot
