Yippie NYC Hosted By Big Mike and Puma Perl

Anyone who has met Puma Perl and Big Mike can probably guess that their events are far from a sleepy "wine and cheese" mixer. I had the honor of taking to the stage at their event this week at the Yippie Museum and Cafe on Bleecker in the village for poetry and performances which also included the flexible (mentally and physically) Amy Uzi, the odd (in a good way) Faux Mo, and more with some performance art, open mic, and even dance tossed in. I finally met Puma and Big Mike over the summer in Kingston at Rebecca Schumejda's reading series at Half Moon Books. After years of corresponding with Puma mostly online, it was pretty cool to see her at last, and even better to see her again in my old stomping grounds in NYC. (I went to grad school at NYU, nearby) In addition to meeting a lot of wonderful people, I was happy to see that Aimee Delong made it, cool to meet her at last. We will have a chap of her poetry in the next few weeks. So anyway, pictures can be found on various facebook pages and also here at the blog. (here) Next event will be in December, track down Puma for more info or the Yippie website in our sidebar.

Danger Brewing

Evan Karp and Charles Kruger cover the SF lit scene, here. While reading the write up of Paul's new reading series, Bitchez Brew, it got me thinking about the idea of power, referred to in the banter as this idea of  "being dangerous". Dangerous. Me, well, I substitute the word power again and again, to me that is what being dangerous is about: it is inextricably linked to actual or perceived power. This power can be physical, circumstantial, practical. But at its core, being dangerous is about having the power to exert one's influence in a harmful way, to negative outcomes. (negative, based on leverage of said danger actualized. blah blah) Of course, that depends on who has a stake in the outcomes. What is negative to the "status quo" might be a hard-won achievement, depends where you stand. Power is a complicated bitch. I don't think Paul means "negative" when he talks about a group's coalescence, and being dangerous. I think he is referring to the way a group can coalesce into something powerful, with the ability to affect outcomes, to be a threat to things in need of threatening but to ultimately be a force of community who approaches the issue of power with candor. I mean, show me a movement ignorant of power dynamics. Is he trying to say, in being dangerous, that there needs to be more traits of a movement and less the characteristic formulary? There was something understood by the old school, no? I have argued, and will again, that power is really the matrix of  "the scene". In the end, people circle around, mating not for offspring but ultimately for The Contract, the Somebody Status. Networking happens just as much in the coffee house as on the golf course. Is that bad? Not necessarily, we needn't take a smug view on it. It is what it is though. Before we can talk about danger, and power, and indeed- a vision for a group, we have to be very clear about a few things. Whose cause is championed? And even more important- who needs to be scared? -Lynn Alexander
