Talk to Me

Despite rumors to the contrary, "Cecil Vortex" is not Thomas Pynchon. I think. But he is the purveyor of a new Thursday feature that spotlights artists talking about their pet techniques for besting the inner slacker. So far there's been a poet, a painter, a clown, a sitcom writer, a comedian, and an actor. (That's comedian Howard Kremer, aka Dragon Boy Suede, to the left.) There are some slashes in there (who's ever just a poet without a slash in there: poet/translator, poet/gardening enthusiast, etc.) but it gives some idea of the range of Cecil's subjects, who face remarkably similar problems in getting ideas to come. These should be appearing every Thursday for a while: the first four are up here.
