Artnoose was one of the first residents of the Cyberpunk Apocalypse, and one of the hardest workers. From the time she moved in she cut down the bullshit rate at the house to almost 0. You had to be careful is you said “we should…” and Artnoose was around, because you would—whatever it was would happen.
In a lot of ways the Noose has achieved her dreams, she owns her own home and letterpress print shop, she has a baby boy whom she loves, but of course dreams are different when you dream them vs. when you live them. And being a single mom is hard.
There are a lot of kickstarters out there. I often post about this or that person (sometimes myself) selling things or asking for help. Artnoose’s is a no bullshit low goal Kickstarter asking for a little help, because she’s tired. She works when her kid goes to sleep fixing plumbing or letterpress printing so she can pay the bills. She wants to try and streamline her work a bit. Because being tired makes a hard life harder.
Artnoose’s modest goal has been reached but I know she could use all the support she can get and more. Please check it out and help a lady that’s helped me, and the CpA so much: CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE KS PAGE!

Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is Boing Boing’s podcast featuring artists, writers, filmmakers, and other creative people discussing their work, ideas, and the practical side of how they do what they do. In episode 22, we speak to Eric Shiner, Director of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
"To Give Voice to Those That Don’t Have It" and "Making the Anomalies of Society Into the Paradigms of Society" are among his responsibilities as the museum’s director. Over the past twenty years, Andy Warhol’s popularity has soared. Shiner talks with us about Warhol’s legacy, about exhibiting the museum’s collection in the Middle East, China, and Japan, and about engaging fans of the legendary pop artist through social media and interactive technology (on-site at the museum, and online).
In 2013, Shiner curated the Armory Focus portion of the Armory Show. He spoke with us about the commercial side of the art world. He explains, “Warhol himself saw absolutely no separation between art and business.”
Finally, Shiner discusses the impact of the internet on the art world and how he finds new and exciting artists.

Top of the Line is about a kid growing into a hero, and in the process becoming a terrible bigoted human being.
Did you watch Clash of the Titans once when you were ten, and love it but not really remember what happened? Did you love dragon ball z but wish they would just get on with it? Do you love Richard Brautigan, Philip K. Dick, David Foster Wallace, and Orson Scott Card?

Like so many kids in 1980s Pittsburgh, Matthew Newton imagined a better scene and life anywhere else. He found a community playing in punk rock bands. But writing was his first love, and he majored in creative nonfiction at the University of Pittsburgh. Graduating in 2001, he realized he had chosen a field that would be difficult no matter where he lived. A native of Wilkinsburg whose parents moved to Plum just in time for him to be disaffected by high school, he stuck around and made a go of it, freelancing for national magazines and operating a small publishing business out of his house. In addition to full-time work on the South Side as assistant managing editor for the American Economics Institute, he continues to write creative nonfiction, hoping there might be a future in it, albeit
Are there months available during the 2014 calendar year?
2014 is wide open, but I have to warn everybody that the acceptance rate will likely be tougher this year. From now on not only does each applicant need to be approved by all long-term residents, but they must be actively backed by at least one resident. That resident will volunteer to take responsibility for you during your stay (getting you a key, getting you comfortable, setting up an event, etc). I am personally pretty burnt out from a year with 10 visiting writers (no offense, you were all great but I gotta write another book right now).
So if you want to get in here during 2014 bring your A game. Wow us.
Throughout the ages bodies have been transformed- implants/ scarring/ disease/ the natural/ the electronic have been inserted or removed from bodies to form bodies that can be consumed. Instead of making the body more “real” the body is now…
Hi! Please excuse my naked Tumblr, if you can see it. I had to create one to submit a question on this thing and I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyway I am writing about your residency. I've been trying to put together a zine for about two years now, but i live with ~1 million people in a punk house in california, and work full time as a jizz mopper at a porn palace, and CANNOT get anything done. Summer is 2 soon for me to apply, but do u take winter apps?Fall? Ahh im out of space to write mo
If you explore the website (tumblr based) and click at the buttons on top, you can find our application process our email, and mailing address. This fall is kind of crazy at the house. Applying for winter may increase your chances of success.
Recent discussions with fellow writers has lead to the realization that there is a kind of meaning rhyme, or fake-out rhyme often used by rappers that does not seem to have a proper name. I’m calling it a juke rhyme.
I’m a star so I smashed the jar
left bar and hopped in my sedan
As you can see “car” would have been an obvious rhyming synonym of sedan. This makes the coupling of “bar” and “sedan” a juke rhyme.
Any examples from popular music or poetry would be appreciated. Also if there is a per-existing word for this lingual technique, I’d love to hear it.
