Hi. My name if Rutherford B. Trace, and I’m the new editor of this weblog. I beg pardon from the ongoing series Frederick Douglass In Brooklyn, which I will soon continue, to implore, beseech, encourage and even— in some cases— command all ya’ll who can get near Grand Army Plaza Tuesday June 1 to see the Internets […]

As soon as they got in the door the guy grabbed her ass. Goddamnit, cant youwait, pushing him away. She staggered and leaned against the wall, the guy leaning over her kissing her neck as she yanked open a closet door looking for a bottle, then slammed it shut when no bottle could be found. […]

Post-apocalyptic? No. This is an apocalyptic posting! Like the smoldering heap of boundary stones marking novelist Jim Knipfel’s Park Slope Liebestod; like Combat Jack’s review of Brendan I.

OR, EAST NEW YORK TEST MATCH by Caz Dolowicz. Let’s keep this light, or at least not swerve unto our real feeling about Yankee Stadium (fuck it), George or Hank Steinbrenner (fuck them) or Rudy Giuliani, Mike Bloomberg and most of the City Council— fuck all ya’ll, hard, & without satisfying release for giving away […]
