Jorie Graham


Jorie Graham is one of those poets who don't need much introduction because she is totally fucking famous. She's won the Pulitzer and tons of other awards. She's controversial for all sorts of reasons. There are sites out there calling her a criminal. There are sites calling her a genius. Sounds familiar? Well, the Trainwreck Union is going to be at UCB on the third floor of aWheeler Hall, rm 330, in the Maude Fife room, to see what all the fuss is about.

Chad Vogler said...

Yeah, no shit. Too bad you missed the reading, Clay, which was about half lecture, 1/4 poetry, 1/4 amusing answers to the audience's questions.

Goddamn, Sam. They read your name and we jumped almost out of our seats clapping and looking around for you, looking like crazy assholes. When did you leave?

I left around 7:30, to go see Cabaret. It's a good production, though I'm not a big fan of musicals. I got free tickets, and I know a third of the chorus line, so there were strong reasons to go see it.

Part of me suspected that the Laws of Comedy suggested this meant I was going to win the drawing, but the logical part of my mind figured I was safe.

Apparently, logic is for suckers.

I was silently laughing my ass off when everyone cheered for Sam and then confused looks ensued. Moment of comedy remembered.
