The Gorgeous Nothings: Emily Dickinson’s Envelope Poems

Man, I love this book. I got it for Christmas a year or two ago, but only really dug into it this week.

It’s executed so well — these envelope fragments are presented full-size on one side of the page, the other side has a little map of the envelope with the words transcribed:

Some of my favorite fragments:

We introduce
To Planets and
to Flowers
But with ourselves
Have Etiquettes
And awes

Who says 
the Absense 
of a 
his spell?

Interesting confluence: I noticed when flipping through Basquiat’s drawings that his hand-written directions would match up nicely with one of these:

You can see a bunch more of these fragments and other manuscripts in the digital Emily Dickinson collection at Amherst:

But I really recommend them in book form

Bonus: here’s a video of Jen Bervin and Marta Werner talking about the work:


which everymanHYBRID character you should fight
  • vinny:the man is a beacon of angelic light and goodness, there is not a bad bone in his entire body. were you to lay a hand on vinny you would instantly be cast out of society for being as cruel and unjust as you are. how dare you even think about fighting vinny. how DARE you.
  • jeff:he's probably fit but like 90% of the time he's laying prone in the dark listening to emo music and ignoring important plot elements so just. slap him around a little. you have the advantage and he probably won't put up much of a fight. fight jeff.
  • evan:evan is small but mighty and not afraid to die with nothing to lose. he hit slenderman with a baseball bat, what do you think he'll do to you? why would you want to fight him anyway, what has he ever done to you. do NOT fight evan.
  • alex:alex has enough to deal with and fighting him would make you a bad person, but he is very tall and his movements are probably slower, so if you're fast enough you could probably get a few good shots in. so fight alex, i guess, you monster.
  • HABIT:just because you want to fight him doesn't mean you should

hello) can you explain why this is "too much" from Alexander? I'm about your favorite joshifer moment!)) (maybe that because of language barier)

The had fan questions and it was something like have you learned any survival skills that could help you survive a cold Minnesota winter?

And there’s screaming and Jen and Josh talk about the coats they wore in the film and then Alex says he’d stick by them because they’re friendly implying that they keep each other warm with their….closeness.

Laverne Cox was named to the 2015 Time’s 100 Most Influential People list. The accompanying piece was written by Jazz Jennings, the 14 year old trans advocate, author, and soon to be star of her own reality show on TLC.

“As a transgender child, I was always looking around for someone like me, because I thought I was the only one. It’s hard to feel like that. But having support from my family changed everything. They helped me love myself and embrace who I am.
Not all trans kids are so lucky. And for them, having someone as visible and strong as Laverne Cox to look up to is inspiring. She’s done so many amazing things—not just acting on Orange Is the New Black but also loving herself enough to share her story with the world. She’s a pioneer for our community.
When Laverne and I met for the first time, it was honestly so exciting. She started screaming like a little girl, because she thought of me as a celebrity! She told me to keep up the good work, and how happy she was about my success. Now I want to do the same for her. Laverne, I love you and I’m so proud of you and you’re definitely making a difference. Keep it up!”

Well done, Laverne! 

And to both Jazz and Laverne, thank you.


So let’s get married
I’m serious
But only for the citizenship
I’ve always liked the idea of it
A relationship doesn’t lie about its intentions and shit
How it doesn’t apologize or anthologize
All the rules and ideas we fill our heads with

Still so good.

Poor Pippi has a lot of father figures lately, Liam, Cooper, CM... Not a very stable environment to raise such a bubbly and needy puppy. Worried about his performance in school.

It’s why he’s been acting out lately.

I think his teacher needs to call in his mommy and all his daddies for a parent/teacher conference.
