Literary Radio

I read an article in the San Francisco Chronicle today by Benny Evangelista that convinced me I don't want to try podcasting myself. I remain, however, fascinated by podcasting's potential for transmitting literature. I think what may happen is that podcasters with time and talent will create Internet radio sites for poetry and literature that will develop vigorous -- even paying -- audiences, much as popular blog sites have turned into a vigorous new form of journalism. Watch out -- here it comes -- literary radio.

One site I'm watching carefully -- and hopefully -- is Safe Digression, a podcast web site out of Boston. Listen, for example, to a podcast on SD of Marianne Moore's "Baseball and Writing" or Maxine Kumin's "In the Park." Podcaster-host Georgy is, presumably, the reader on all. What I hope to hear as a result of today's Safe Digression call for submissions, is a diversity of voices reading many different poems. Yes, I know I can hear all the famous people intoning their famous poems at the Academy of American Poets. But you know, it's a little like reading last month's newspapers. I want to hear today's poems by today-poets. And not all the famous are exactly today. (So shoot me for saying it.) What we need is Poetry Daily X 100 in spoken word, a 24/7 poemcast that's as unpredictable as Bob Holman's wonderful film, The United States of Poetry, now online and available through streaming video.

There's a concept -- web poetry tv. Okay, maybe a different decade for that one. But for a really avante garde marriage of web technology and poetry, take a look at Poems That Go.

But I don't want to be the one to have to figure out how to configure and upload and moderate all that stuff. I don't want to be a producer; I can hardly figure out how to stop my microphone from popping. Please, let the motivated and tech-able people be the producers and podcasters. I just want to be one of many readers, writers and listeners.

  1. Special DNN - BUSINESS NEWS Report For Rachel Dacus!

    -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- PRESS RELEASE DNN - BUSINESS NEWS.
    The Ten million dollar pixel website does something NO other ONE million pixel web site can! - The'll Give TWO million dollar away!!
    Just recently we reported about The Tenmilliondollarwebsite.com. The site is a copycat of The Million Dollar Homepage by a 21-year-old British entrepreneur Alex Tew. The Ten million dollar is rapidly evolving into the fastest growing 'pixel' web site online. They now offer $2.000.000,00 to the largest advertiser on their site.

    THE NETHERLANDS, October, 2005 - The tenmilliondollarwebsite.com takes pixel advertising several big steps further. As you can see on http://tenmilliondollarwebsite.com/blog The site had more than 100,000.00 pageviews in 6 weeks being online!! We now have an Alexa page rank far into the 100.000 says Walter proud. He and Janwillem, two guys from The Netherlands are the owners of the site.

    They want to live their dream and start an own (Internet) marketing, hosting and consultant business, using the proceedings of the site... They have without a doubt the most valuable name...

    To boost the value of your TROPI (Traffic Return On Pixel Investment we learned) they organized a huge and unique promotion!
    Asking about this special promotion, Janwillem says: As said before, we can do something no other million dollar website can do: We are giving away more than $2.000.000,00!!

    We will give one of our advertisers $2.000.000,00 ( two million dollars) as soon as our site is filled for 50%! The best thing about it is: Nobody needs to participate in any kind of lottery to have a chance to become a millionaire.

    We asked the guys from Holland who will get the money then and what they have to do for it;. It is simple, they replied. To win this $2.000.000,00, you'll need to become the largest advertiser on our site and we'll personally give you $2.000.000,00 (two million dollars). We will do so as soon as our site is filled for 50%!!

    On top of this, we'll choose five of our advertisers at random, no matter what size or time they are with us, and reward them each with $100.000,00! Also after the site is filled for 50%! So, in fact, we are giving away $2,500.000,00! Part of that could be yours. All you need to do is buy some pixels on our site!

    Walter tells us that he knew their site would become a success and now he predicts this promotion will boost the site in the top five movers and shakers!!' We are here to set records! And we will. This means great exposure for all of our advertisers! We have had people boosting their sales figures mainly by the visitors they get from us!

    A great stunt like this will certainly attract oceans of curious and click happy people who will be visiting our site. Who would not want to get $2.000.000,00 in cash from the ten million dollar website? Just for being the largest advertiser on the only TEN million dollar website!

    Both guys smile when they say: We'll invite anyone to buy pixels and have a chance to change their lives!
    Wow, Even if you would buy advertisement for $1.000.000,00 you'd still gain a full 100%
    Remember! Your $100,00 pixel friends placed on our site could mean you gain at least $100.000,00!!!

    We are no students, and we are not looking to pay for college. Yet, when the site is successful enough, we would love to pay and we will pay for people who never had college or even seen a school before in their lives. We have made plans when the site reaches a certain level of success, says Janwillem.

    Find out more about Walter and Janwillem, W2solutions.info and their www.tenmilliondollarwebsite.com
    W2solutions.info will be a Dutch business which offers profit design, profit solutions, web hosting services, consultation services and they endeavor to use own design as well as open source software for client projects wherever possible in order to keep development costs down. We are working very hard to try and get this baby walking. The site will be a great help. We ask anyone to buy our pixels.

    Be their largest advertiser and gain $2.000.000,00!

    Because bigger is better.
