Girl Talk Is A Scorpio

32 pages, digest size, $2.00 or trade or friendly letter, Jim Hayes, PO Box 1459, Marietta GA 30061, USA + assemblyplantmarietta 
Jim admits in his intro that he's been writing an essay on Pittsburgh musician Girl Talk for a year now. Is this it? Girl Talk are mentioned throughout, but so is a lot of other stuff. In fact much of this comes across as stream-of-consciousness after many days without sleep. It's all about music though (aside from the few references to ejaculating on newspapers and copies of Moby Dick), referencing The Doors, The Ramones, Velvet Underground, Led Zeppelin ... but then names I'm unfamiliar with: Dash Snow, Zowie Fenderblast, Thomas Kinkade. Who they? Where's the Google button? Jim also throws in observations of modern music, "...all this techno music is just drug music - flashing lights and some type of uber-ecstasy called "molly"" and repetition - the pronouncement that "The entire art world is just a bunch of rich kids taking drugs" appears three times in bold type. There's a lot going on here; a lot going on in Jim's head. He's a good writer and reading this I felt a buzz. I'm impressed when a writer can assemble words and ideas like this. It's pretty cool.
Now I gotta go Google Girl Talk. And Dash Snow. And Zowie Fenderblast. And Thomas Kinkade.
