Saturday! After the tryptophan wears off, I will be reading with Mike Young & Dan Boehl in Harvard Square as part of Brian Foley’s Deep Moat Reading Series. The reading starts at 5pm on-the-dot at the Pierre Menard Gallery, 10 Arrow Street, Cambridge.

Lady Gaga’s Hats

are spectacular. I’m kind of really obsessed with her right now—her pop hooks, style, and overall insouciance. Here are some great hats.

Also, I spent most of Thursday afternoon watching Lady Gaga music videos and live performances on YouTube. This was not a waste of time. My favorite hat appears in my favorite video of Gaga performing on Ellen. Please watch, you won’t be sorry.

Seth Landman of Invisible Ear has created The Divine Magnet Reading Series — an online, international, 24-7 happening. No conflicts! No need to carpool! They are bringing the poetry to you! So far Seth has posted readings by Natalie Lyalin (in Jerusalem) & Lewis Freedman (in Madison, WI), with beautifully-written introductions by Lesley Yalen & Jessica Fjeld, respectively.
