Trashy Periodical Literature

If you've been reading the comment boxes, you may have noticed that Julia has purchased me a subscription to Jane magazine. Thanks! My inner 23 year old hipster chick thanks you.

On that note, if you want to send me a subscription, let me know! I'd love to get something free for nothing from a stranger. Or I could trade you a chapbook, something from my extensive collection of lit journals, or a surprise!

Okay, so I've decided to spice up the contest. WHAT'S THE BEST SONG OF THE ROCK ERA (UP TO BUT NOT INCLUDING NIRVANA)? Not only will the best responses be published on this blog, but if anyone's answer is the same as mine, I'll send them some sort of fancy gift package. (Cheap, but maybe interesting.) If nobody has the same answer as me, I'll still send something to the author of my favorite answer.

ACT NOW AND I'LL THROW IN A FLOWBEE. OR A CLAPPER.

Sarah Manguso -- in a "woman on the street" interview -- discusses how frequently she wants sex in this month's issue of Jane.

I read that. She dodged the question and gave a "poetic" answer.

Cheater.
