the mods don't see us mere plebeians fit for adding polls after the thread has been made - i suppose now my only option is to simply stew in my own shit (metaphorically speaking) and of course, continue to enjoy the misadventures of my boy Kyle

The BWF period provided some of Billy’s best narcisstic meltdowns. Remember how he bitched about the entire literary community not welcoming him with open arms?

These people have devoted their entire lives to an art form for which there is little hope of ever receiving any recognition or monetary reward. They are working their asses off for nothing. And then you just come along and immediately get a book deal having no background or education in literature and no history of actually writing or publishing anything...and make a ton of money at it...and then not only do you expect them all to just roll out the red carpet for you, you actually cop a shitty attitude at then when they don’t.

Holy shit.

Probably what’s best for the baby. Psychologically.

Next interview

Billy: "We're talking about a fanbase steeped in such a negative culture that they accused me of hurling my second born child from a mountaintop."

If the dream is gone
Good! Let it die
I would rather tumble to the ground
Hard and wet with rain
Knowing you were waiting for me

He had said " don't think I'm going to make albums in the old-fashioned way, meaning 12–15 songs, etc. in one small package. My desire at this point would be to release one song at a time, over a period of 2–3 years, with it all adding up to a box set/album of sorts that would also ******* an art movie of the album" , well obviously Oceania and MTAE are albums, obviously his original plan fizzled out within a year.
it's because the whole thing was a poorly defined shit show from day one. He says we're gonna get 44 songs, 1 per month for 4 years. At the end of year one, five of the promised twelve tracks had been released. Then after 2 years he quits two songs into what would have been the 3rd EP. Then he decides he is doing a traditional LP as part of the project, but it turns out to feel completely disconnected from the EPs. Then he says the project is dead. Then he releases another LP 2 years later. A year after that, he retroactively says that LP was part of TGBK all along.

what in the fuck. that's why TGBK is just the two EPs and the two extra songs

"Entertainment Weekly gave the effort a 'D,' calling the poems ' both pretentious and confoundingly esoteric.' "

Blinking with Fists
(and other caterpillar tales)



A poem, if you will:
Gentle waves rise
just off the fingertips
All I breathe is mine
By name alone
Shape-shifter questions
To strip skin off slow
Devoid of sex
I mix up unions in the offering
The hushed-up voices are here
But they are sated full
Waiting for the stumble
That must surely come
"this time," he declares loudly
(annonymous town square)
"this time there will be no stumble"
and the crowd, on cue, errupts wildly in unison, "hooray"

while I sleep they come in pairs
to pat my head and teach old verse
I try to tell them my life is redundant
By placing my finger to my temple to show knowing
With bruises at the ready I am
Blinking with fists

The chorus lines up to sing
A deep breath, ready to begin
A crying baby breaks the silence
Awkward laughter ensues, on cue
"divine order," says someone

falling down chimneys, thru veins, out limbs
into masterpieces drawn in dirt
the figures are portrayed in a stunning act of repose
their bindings on their wrists
they are still blinking
