Wow! Great pictures. I thought I might see myself in a crowd shot. I went to one of the Ginsberg readings (at the College of St. Rose!). Ginsberg had an entourage and read a few fantastic haiku. These photos bring back memories (some good, some not so good), of many years Albany. Thanks for this post.

Thanks, Dan for documenting real poetry for makes big old world more cozy through your black and white lens.

Great photos. They bring back alot of memories


Great piece. Love the photos. The one of White Boy is pricelss.

Thank you for profiling Dan Wilcox, an indispensable member-- one would even say "leader"-- of the Albany writers community. I hope that one day Dan gets his terrific photos into book form for all to enjoy. In the meantime, many are addicted to his blog, DWx, which reaches way beyond the Capital District scene. Thanks to Dan for all he does and for telling me about your interesting blog!

This is a great article about someone who is a griot in my life, in poetry, but in other parts as well. I missed the days of Dan's long hair and was really happy to get a glimpse.

Thanks to Dan for sending the link to this in one of his Poetry Motel newsletters. We're all a bit older now, eh what?

Damn! I had just erased the memory of Weinmann naked from my brain! Seriously, great pics and great memories!
