How secret languages thrive behind bars

quote [ Both he and Kearse described prison language as an extension of hip-hop, sharing some of the same words and being similarly stylized and creative. ?It?s that same spirit, same desire to play with words,? said Reilly. ?There?s so much creativity in there, and wit.? ]

Interesting views on language and rhyme.

Walt Whitman in Russia: Three Love Affairs

quote [ Walt Whitman’s influence on the creative output of 20th-century Russia — particularly in the years surrounding the 1917 Revolution — was enormous. For the 200th anniversary of Whitman's birth, Nina Murray looks at the translators through which Russians experienced his work, not only in a literary sense — through the efforts of Konstantin Balmont and Kornei Chukovsky — but also artistic, in the avant-garde printmaking of Vera Ermolaeva. ]

I'm going to get through Walt Whitman

Tin Soldier

quote [ Metal. Magic. Gods. War. Voodoo. Mood Whiplash. The Beatles. Chocolate Cake. ]

Tin Soldier is an excellent web serial I've been reading for maybe six months now. It recently passed 100 installments and deserves much more attention than it currently has. More info in extended.
