“Winner”

July 25th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

"Winner"

“Winner” has its foundation in something my mom always used to say.

“There’s a real winner.”

This phrase would invariably be flung in the general direction, yet out of earshot, of some hapless doofus, loud-mouthed jerk, or scowling ne’er do well. “Winner” to my mother was a sarcasm, a sour taste, an ill-bestowed honor.

Spin Black Groovespin black groove
wax and wane
unwound by a needle
again and again

spin black groove
bump and restart
flip to 2 B

EXTERMINATOR!

Exterminator!

I’m looking at my copy of
Exterminator! by William S. Burroughs
the white bordered Penguin version from the 80’s
with the upside down painting on the cover
or, rather
the painting is OF someone

Musée Mécanique on Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco

April 8th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Musée Mécanique

The rain is relentless and our clothing sticks to our travel weary bodies. To our right, grand galleries of outrageous pomp and finery in bronze, gold, and glass stand cheek and jowl with fast food counters, kitsch mongers, and dingy alcoves papered with promises of adventure and fantastic sights at only 39 dollars a head. Across the street and on past another row of shops is the bay and an island with an old prison converted to a tourist attraction.

That’s right, we’re on Jefferson Street in San Francisco’s waterfront, heading towards Fisherman’s Wharf – tourist hell.

As with any city, any handful of earth upon which you may find yourself: sift carefully, for their may be gems here. Gems like the Musée Mécanique at the end of Taylor Street on Fisherman’s Wharf.

Radio Silence

Radio Silence

radio silence
you know it
because you can hear it
silence like someone left a window open during a storm
silence like a mic full of reverb in a fat room
silence like a man in search of a lozenge
back’a th’throat, meditative like
aural snow
radio silence

5 Years in 5 Seconds (approximately)

5 Years in 5 Seconds (approximately)

I recently discovered a treasure trove (?) of really stupid self portraits that collected in my computer over the years while I was working out of a particular office. May 2009 to January, 2014 – 5 years in 5 seconds (approximately).

The camera in this Mac has seen a lot – mostly me answering email and the phone, photo-correcting client images, puzzling out strings of html, css, js, and php – but also me surfing the net and taking questionable pictures of myself when I might have been working a little more diligently.

The images were not created out of vanity – well, not many of them, anyway. It’s hard to be vain when your first reaction upon seeing a camera lens is to act like a total dipstick. Instead, I created them over the years to illustrate the point, complete the joke, startle the timid, annoy the serious, and, of course, to waste the time.

Cat in a Store Window

February 3rd, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Cat in a Store Window

What do you do when you see a cat? Let’s say a cat in a store window peering out at you, for example? Well, I dunno about you but, when I see a cat, my first urge is usually to go and try and interact with it, the polar opposite of my typical reaction at seeing another person.

So, now that I’ve outed myself as one of *those* people …
