Why I am in love with Joy Williams' song 'woman' (oh mama)

The video embedded above is Joy Williams’ video for her single Woman (oh mama) and I thought this was important enough to talk about. This video was initially uploaded to youtube on the 30th of April this year, I have listened to it countless times since then and it has taken me this long to be able to form a coherent opinion on it (instead of just incoherent jumbled up words of admiration including “oh my” “it’s … amazing…” and “just … jhgelifyWGERUG… WOW”). 279 more words

As I had mentioned in my previous post, Joy Williams’ new solo album, VENUS, has really been resonating with me. Similar to Williams, I have been feeling reformed and like I am having a rebirth, embracing change for the first time in my life. 215 more words

Woman monster, woman child,
Woman hero, woman wild…

This is a beautiful album, plain and simple. I wish I could write a spot for all the songs on the album, they’re all that good. 476 more words

Read as Yourself: Ben Marcus on New American Fiction and the Art of the Anthology

Later this month, Vintage Contemporaries will publish New American Stories, a richly variegated anthology of American short stories edited by Ben Marcus. The collection, which Marcus put together more as a playlist or mixtape than a “museum piece,” is a stirring arrangement that presents a strong case for the American short story as a vital, living thing. 2,774 more words
