internet hassles

just thought we would check in
internet connections are very spotty
and right now we are online at the hotel paying too much to use it
things are going very well and we are safe and sound
in florence today
heading to assisi tomorrow
driving south toward sicily the next day, staying in naples
driving to sicily the day after that...
we have been keeping up with daily postcards, and will post them ASAP
the laptop cant get wireless access at this hotel, so we cannot upload them right now
will upload them next time we can get wireless...
we hope all is well back home...

5/8 - heading to italy

First things first, we want to say THANK YOU to the Gibbs family (Linda, Michael, Graham, and Chelsea), for letting stay in their basement all week long, letting us use their vehicles, and driving us to and from the trains everyday. We appreciate it so much... It was great spending time with you throughout the week and we hope to stay in touch with you!

2nd day in NYC, feels like 2nd week! (lots to do, lots of walking)

Click image to enlarge it. We filmed some awesome performatives (poems/performances) at the school with Alex (both digital with the DVX and 8MM film!). Richard Kostelanetz is a great, long-time scholar of Avant-Garde art/artists and has written on Alex's performance and written poetry. Specifically, Richard included Alex in his incredibly ambitious document "A Dictionary of the Avant-Gardes", and his anthology on sound poetry "Text-Sound Texts". Follow the links above to learn more about Richard (whom we interviewed today for the documentary!), the dictionary that Alex is included in, and the anthology that Alex is included in.
