Being reminded of David Blair at POP-X

When my friend David Blair, the much loved Detroit poet, passed away unexpectedly about five years ago, I said here on the site that I thought it was likely, given the kind of man that David was, and the poetry that he’d produced during his lifetime, that we’d continue to be reminded of him through […]

Ypsilanti once again kicks ass… Thousands take to the streets in celebration of child-licking demon, Krampus

Last night was Ypsilanti’s big Krampus party. As all of the venues were packed, the Brewery sold out of our special “naughty” and “nice” beers, and no one died, I’d say it was a huge success. For those of you who couldn’t come, there are some great photos up at AnnArbor.com. I also shot a […]
