Poet's Korner

Creme de la brain
The sunset is a creme, yellow
Neatly leaking through the slatted shades
This is a color-palette anachronism
It relaxes my mind-tubes
Fluids of stress slow their flow
But it will fade soon enough
For that sun can't hang forever
We all know it ain't Michael Jordan

And we all know that Michael Jordan is
A construct, those commercials lie
No one can do what he does
He can't do what he does
But we buy the squeaky sneakers
Buying the sensation of a brilliant star
Like the sun
But the sun sets
And in a few billion and some change,
It will die and take us with it.

Korner Wisdom

Everybody seems to be thinking outside of the box these days. Break the mold and take a peek inside, if you dare.

Kandor Korner

"When you read one of my can I say this in terms relevant to the digital age? Ok, let’s try this: imagine that one of my stories is a folder on the desktop of your home computer. Gazing upon the folder’s icon and reading its title may very well be a fulfilling experience on its own, but double-click on the folder and you’ll discover dozens if not hundreds of unique files within. Some of them are image files. Others are text documents--many of which are comprised of the beguilingly unintelligible characters of machine language. Some files you click on and a dialogue box pops up with the unfortunate news that an error has occurred. You might even happen upon a few sub-folders, adding further depth and intrigue to your exploration. What’s in these sub-folders?? Per hap nothing. Per hap they are locked, and nobody knows the administrative password. Not even me... 
Anyways, that’s just some of my material. Other stories you can pretty much take at face value."

Ahead Of Our Times

This afternoon, one of our stringers shot this image at the nexus of Idaho and 19th Streets in Boise:

These imposing, lithic blocks are engraved with what appears to be an attempt to brand the district in the western extremity of the central business district.  Not to say we told you so, but we kreative types were aboard the community identity train for this particular neighborhood as far back as 2006 with West Downtown helmed by our own Chris Peebles.  Look up "visionary" in the dictionary and you'll see our picture.
