Find here the fifth installment of THE2NDHAND's feature of work from the mid-2010 installment of Chicago's Ray's Reading Series, whose next event is scheduled for Oct. 23, 2010, as always at Ray's Tap in Chicago. Chicago poet Tim Stafford Tim Stafford has performed internationally at the ABC Brecht Festival in Munich, and appeared on the lowest rated show in HBO history. He is the editor of the classroom poetry anthology Learn Then Burn, A Modern Poetry Anthology for the Classroom, available through Write Bloody Publishing. The second, "Death by Man" portion of the Ray's Yellowstone show began with the video beow, by Susie Kirkwood and Landry Miller. Kirkwood is a Chicago-based graphic designer. You can see her and her sister's shadow puppet shows performed all around Chicago. Miller's motion graphics were recently part of the Ragdale "House, Dreaming" gallery exhibition in Lake Forest, Ill. He has also been an intern at Featherproof Books over the last year. Also involved was Alan Scalpone, a Chicago multi-instrumentalist and member of the Bitter Tears band. You can see him in "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers," available on DVD. He is one of the best composers and performers on the planet, and he did not write this bio.
Now, these uppity ranger types thought it would be a great idea
This one arrogant piece of shit doctor from California
Now here's the bitch about me
These drunk bastards fell in and the one was like
I'm like the fucking Superman of lakes.
Now I don't discriminate.
