Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Paul Vioi at the New School (by Ben Mirov):


I was so so sorry to have missed this reading. Paul Violi is amazing. Like the um's. In journalism school they taught us to take the Um's out of quotations so as to ... you know... um, well FDR's been dead a long time, eh Mirov?

I also really like Prof Violi's reading. I especially like the part when he said "In that regard [whatever regard] I am a frustrated actor. To me every form is a kind of mask." I think that is great. And I want more people to know that he said that, so I'm writing it here. It will also be featured in my thesis paper. I like how Violi is almost always laughing before he's speaking. It is as if he is really laughing.

I completely agree with Mollye and will post "Every form is a kind of mask" on the blog.

I love that quote.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
