The greatest TV show of the late 50s early 60s.
They have Milk in the the counter.
yes, I GOT Milk today!
Got milk today!
Thank you! Look fabulous.
I will read it tonight.
damn, it didn't come today. and I'm leaving tomorrow for vacation, so I'll have to wait until I get back to see it.
but it'll be worth the wait.
These are the fkn Olsen twins, aren't they? They always creep me out somehow.
got my copy today. Sweet.
I received copies yesterday. Actually I received one copy on Thursday because marina del rey is a swell guy. But I received the copies I was supposed to get in the first place yesterday.
As it turns out, the post office sent them from the west side of Los Angeles to Pendleton Oregon (1,016 miles), then from Pendleton Oregon to the east side of Los Angeles (1,018 miles). Hence the delay. You know, due to the 2,009 miles of unnecessary travel.
Why did they do that? For fun? Just because they can? Maybe because they entered the zip code with one wrong digit when they printed the postage label.
The package was battered, as you might expect, but all copies of MILK were perfectly fine.
I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but it's good to have it here.
Maybe the post office staff in Pendleton needed the work. I imagine things are pretty slow in that part of Oregon these days, what with the economy and all.
Maybe part of the "round up" this year is sorting mis-shipped mail?
I'm reading it for a second time and some stuff I've read several times. Who are some of those people besides the wonders of buk.net?
Good to hear mjp finally received his dose of Milk. Funny to a point but the wayward possibilities of the post office not such a laughing matter. Agree with Gerard, there's some fine fucking talent lurking these halls and then some.
Thanks to everyone for the kind words.
If anyone else hasn't received their copies yet, please let me know. I think they should have arrived for everyone by now, except maybe some of the ones going to European or South American countries.
All of the poet bios are here on our webpage. A lot of the poets have links to their individual homepages there as well, so you can read more about them.
Thanks, I knew I had seen it somewhere. I know a poem is very well written when I want to read it again and I enjoy it more each time. There are several like that in there. That one guy has moxie, doesn't he.
got mine today (I was away for a bit). haven't read it yet but it looks good. they spelled my name correctly, but really, how hard is it to spell Dan Fante?
Milk arrived today in Uruguay. Friday 13th. There's hope somewhere around.
Great picture pichon64 they should consider that for future cover art.
Just finished reading mine today! Beautiful work guys! Lovin' it!
I've read it through two times now and... fantastic. A lot of great writing and I really liked a lot of the authors that I hadn't read before.
Just ordered a copy (I'm assuming there are still some left). Admittedly I don't post here much but i'm familiar with the work of some of the poets on that list and i can't wait to read this!
and i think some of these 'milk girls' should feature on future front covers!
When the publisher sells out, I have a couple extra copies here that I'll sell for the cover price only, but only when the publisher is sold out.
Thanks for the order - it's already on its way to Scotland. I still have a few copies of Issue 1 remaining, but they're nearly gone now.
Pre-orders will soon be available for MILK 2. Here's a preview of the cover:
Holy cow! That's one good looking cover.
yes, it is amazing. Are you having it silkscreen printed?
Yeah! Great looking cover...again!
Unlikely, though I made it two spot colors with silkscreening in mind. I looked and looked but couldn't find any screen printers in L.A. who printed on paper with the exceptions of a few fine art (expensive) printers, though there were seemingly dozens who screen print tee shirts. It will probably be produced digitally, but now that I'm in Eureka, it's a somewhat artsy town, and maybe I can find someone here to do it if I can find time to search around a bit.
Go to an art school or art graduate school. My son is in Korea but I will ask him if anyone he knows in Claremont, Ca might be able to do it.
Any news/updates on MILK 2?
Yeah, it's running late. Josh got married (congrats dude!) and I've been moving around. Should be soon though. Sorry for the delay... life just gets in the way of getting things done sometimes.
Got mine today!Now I have something that HAS to be done.Beaut
Glad you got your copy, reasonknot, but I'm frankly pissed this hasn't sold out yet. Should have long ago. Quality should mean something. Long time overdue but thanks, chronic, for the update. Hope the delay with #2 is not much longer. You boys have a good thing going here with this publication.
