By way of explanation, these shots were taken in Seoul last year. I was walking down the street with my friend Kevin, hungover and looking for hot chips, when we ran into two girls from Dresden, Anja and Enik�. They were lost, so we helped them find their way to some temple or other. Turned out they were only in Seoul for one night, so we arranged to meet up for dinner and drinks. They were pretty (funny) girls - and we had some hilarious moments in a Jongno bar called Blue Moon. At one stage Anja decided that I'd look good in her scarf and so we proceeded to assemble possibly the worst look I have ever sported, the faux-burka drunk. No offence intended to anyone, seriously. Let me stress, this was not my idea at all. Anyway, out of the blue, Anja recently sent me these pictures as evidence. Memories of the night flooded back, unfortunately. Now I'm inflicting them on you, too. Look and learn, fashionistas.

My chapbook Abendland (pictured left, details ) has been reviewed by Philly poet Adam Fieled on his excellent blog. Check out the review here . As far as I can tell, this is the first time my work has ever been reviewed, anywhere. I only have a couple of copies of the book left, but I hope to make an announcement soon as to a possible re-release, along the lines of Pavement's Slanted and Enchanted . For those who don't have a clue what I'm talking about, Pavement's debut full length album circulated unofficially as a cassette tape in the early 1990s, with the consequence that it was well known "underground" before being released, erm, "overground". So, if you'd like to possess a copy of the original chapbook, and would like to be able to tell your grandkids that you got in there first, before the Abendland project went mainstream, contact me via email . Like, today. In other spellbinding news, sure to get Stung seething, I've finally bitten
