clap clap blog: we have moved

From that Paglia interview:
Her celebration of these poems -- each reprinted and electrically interpreted -- is paired with a blistering critique of what she sees as the cultural and academic forces that have conspired to undermine our enjoyment of poetry, lessening its importance in the process. She demands reform and believes it will be up to graduate students and poets themselves to lead the way.So, basically, poetry is fucked.
Incidentally, I think we're not "paying attention to the word" (what?) because it's a blog. The whole point is to not spend too much time with the dictionary. There are other forms in which to do that. Like when it's 6 am and you're really fucked up and talking to some dude and you bust out with "hyperreal" and "solfege" and he's all, whoah.
