john rogers has been accused of rape, you published him in the yolo pages. why arent you saying anything about that?
i hadn’t seen this about john rogers yet, can anyone send me a link to more info? we also published tao lin and stephen michael mcdowell in the yolo pages, so yes we need to address this more, publicly, in general. boost house hasn’t met as a group to talk about this yet, but we will probably agree to remove these writers from future printings of yp, i would imagine (?). thank you for your concern
many of you already know that earlier this week, my past collaborator, friend, and peer in the writing community, Stephen Tully Dierks, has been outted as a sexual predator/rapist: multiple women (sophia katz and tiffany wines, primarily) have bravely spoken up, and shared their experiences of his…

“If Latin America had not been pillaged by the U.S. capital since its independence, millions of desperate workers would not now be coming here in such numbers to reclaim a share of that wealth; and if the United States is today the world’s richest nation, it is in part because of the sweat and blood of the copper workers of Chile, the tin miners of Bolivia, the fruit pickers of Guatemala and Honduras, the cane cutters of Cuba, the oil workers of Venezuela and Mexico, the pharmaceutical workers of Puerto Rico, the ranch hands of Costa Rica and Argentina, the West Indians who died building the Panama Canal, and the Panamanians who maintained it.”—Juan Gonzalez, Harvest of Empire: A History of Latinos in America (via neruda-bro)
i was bad at seeing and reporting the sunsets when i was on my trip to nyc ! there was a really good one last night as our bus was leaving town, from manhattan, and i would see the orange clouds inbetween the skyscrapers at intersections, it was great.. i didnt get a picture because my phone was dead. anyway the climate march was great and it was an inspiring weekend for me, i met remi kanazi and got to connect w/ some friends too.. now im back in maine for a while, excited about a new project im working on, and hoping to catch all the sunsets again !!
tonight i failed on seeing the sunset :( i mean i was outside around 6:30pm so maybe i saw the beginning of it, in a sense.. i think it was gona be pretty similar to other recent sunsets: mostly clear sky, with a light gradient in the west. but i had an important dinner to catch ! i got to meet aamer rahman and talk a bunch, and then see his show.. very exciting for me, i really love his stand-up.. if you’re not familiar, i recommend searching “aamer rahman” on youtube and watchin a whole bunch
