Facts and Fantasies from Around the (Other) World
Some kids, some ladies, some purposeful lurkers and a very special guest bring you cold, hard facts and pure raucous chimeras from this realm and others.
The third installment of our Distance Learning series live on Youtube on April 14, 2015:
Dan Ivec will wear the mask of Aaron Octavio MondXKii in order to discuss at length the calligraphic poetry of his cousin, Isidora MondXKii II. Her work exists in a basically dead language which was read and spoken in certain, vast cities on the moon. Primary sources – original manuscripts and photographs – will definitely be discussed.
Today, we printed and put together these matchbooks. John disassembled 100 matchbooks – pried open the staples and cut out the phosphorus strips, and then I printed “meekling press” onto some marbled paper and, on the inside, quotes from a few of the books we’ve published in the past. Marbling paper is my new obsession, and I’ll have to write a post on here soon about how to do it because it is truly so enjoyable. Then we put the matchbooks back together – stapled in the matches and glued the phosphorus strips onto the back. A good day’s work! (We also ate pizza.)
Pop. Billions of people drink it every day, but why? On Pat’s Pop Show Live!!!, international pop expert and YouTube sensation, Patrick Klacza, will investigate the reasons why, after centuries, humans continue to drink pop. He’ll also predict what the future holds for Earth’s most precious resource.
Featuring a surprise guest and all-new pop reviews, this installment of Meekling’s Distance Learning program is not to be missed.
