Damn yo, Nick Piombino is pissed at Josh Corey, too! It's funny because I imagined Nick as just constantly levitating in the lotus position surrounded by a funky kaleidoscopic aura of good vibes, and he went gangstah on Josh's bespectacled PHD humpin' ass for giving him a harsh critique. Shit.
I think there's a difference between mentioning how eager you are to be recognized (which is, I think, what Josh was pointing out in his review of Nick's book) and stating how you want a balanced, stable "little career" on a blog. A blog, people!
A BLOG! A blog. A blog. A BLOG BLOG BLOG. BLOGGEDY BLOG. BLOG! A FUCKING BLOG! IT'S JUST A BLOG! IT'S LIKE A DIARY WITH WINGS, THOSE BLOGS! THE BLOGS! THESE BLOGS BLOGGING UP MY PIMP DRAIN.

All yall guffawing at Josh Corey for BEING HONEST ABOUT HIS INTENTIONS AND NOT HIDING THEM in a lot of bogus posturing should be ashamed. You know you want to be published, too. You know you think of what you're doing as a "little career" -- and if you don't, why do you send your poems out to get published? Why did you go to a creative writing program? To be anonymous?
