OFFICIAL BOOK TRAILER FOR BLACK CLOUD!!!

                Juliet Escoria is the sort of person who wants you to buy their book. The problem with book trailers is usually they are relatively boring things with just a single thing followed by a few cool blurbs. Well Beach Sloth considers Black Cloud to be one of the greatest things to cross his eyes. By keeping things pitch perfect dark Juliet Escoria has created the sort of thing that literally demands to be read in a single sitting. Failure to do so is punishable by death. 

                Civil Coping Mechanisms did the whole world a great favor by unleashing this sucker onto the unsuspecting public. Hence they probably needed to do a few trailers for the book to get the public at least a little ready. The heads are not ready for this; they are busy being the heads of state with too little time to devote to mere books. If a single head of state bothered to give it a quick read they would realize exactly how much the book could change their life. Any head of state with this valuable insight into the human condition, given to them for next to nothing, would be able to outmaneuver their opponents. Such a head of state has read the book. Vladimir Putin, of Russia fame, recently read the book and things have been going great for him. Unfortunately the rest of the world failed to put Juliet Escoria’s book on their reading list, opting instead to re-read the Harry Potter series. 

                Will the world pick up on the sheer brilliance that comes out this very day? The answer is a resounding maybe. Earth tends to have a lot of writers of varying degrees of quality. Juliet Escoria’s work tends to be in that upper rung of writers. Beach Sloth has adored her work even before he ever got his little sloth claws on the book. Releasing so many videos allowed Juliet Escoria to reach brand new audience members who opt to get their hype from VIMEO instead of YouTube, who realize that true art inspires yet more true art. 

                Failure to purchase Black Cloud will result in a less fulfilling life. People need to prepare themselves for the dark times. Life can be relentlessly brutal at times and it is good to know what a person will be getting into. Hence Black Cloud is the kind of thing that could change lives, save lives, and make the world a better place. It takes darkness to acknowledge the light.

Richard Moult and David Colohan - Hexameron 7.0


                Hexameron is a delicate work. Well-thought out and executed everything falls into the right place. Every piece feels spacious. Aspects of the sound seem to transmit from far-away places. Guitars glisten. Piano is particularly effective throughout the six piece merging effortlessly with the more rock elements. Stranger still are the wordless vocals that add the right amount of emphasis when necessary. The entire mix comes together to create these shaky structures that manage to stand up quite well as a whole. Less of a series of songs it is more a continuation of a theme that works throughout each song, building upon the last. 

                On the opener the wordless vocals have a near-religious quality to them. Following the opener is an even quieter piece that barely raises its volume above a whisper. Around the third track the guitar begins to get a little prickly allowing for a compelling amount of drama. The fourth and fifth tracks go hand in hand. Deep heavy bass permeates most of the fourth track which gives off the impression of a brooding piece. Violence reigns on the fifth track which is by far the most aggressive piece on the entire collection, starting from the sad and building up to a fury by the end. For the finale things end off on a quiet meditative mood with the wordless Gregorian-like chorus. 

Richard Moult and David Colohan go for restraint on ‘Hexameron’ and the payoff is wonderful. Moments of it absolutely shine with hope.

The YOLO Pages


                Those who do not think about the end of their life are doomed to repeat it. Nobody said that because it is goofy and doesn’t really mean anything. Art is obsessed with death from writing to painting. Movies are big into death. Everything artistic is about death in one way or another. Like even this blog post will end a premature death for it has many more to follow it. 

                Kenji Khozoei begins his day thinking about his end of days, just like any normal person should. Being the person a person wants to be takes forever and most of the time it never happens. People can be afraid of success sometimes. Yolo is not a joke Yolo is reality. Salads deserve appreciation; salads are green with envy at the processed foods of the world taking over. Clear skies need the recognition of millions and billions of people. The sky is an incredible life-giving force. 

                Ji Yoon Lee calls out the fun sacks. Yes she burns down the house. The house decides to die by the flame. Going downtown to the south is where the magic happens. Popsicle stands get blown up all the time. Summertime needs the Popsicle stands. Rainbows deserve to be tasted. 

                Tao Lin clicks on a link. Typical click bait demands others to get their click on. Information can terrify showing the sad parts of life. George W. Bush has a rough life via encounter with an anti-fan. With the size of the universe it is amazing how big it is yet the smallest components of life remain completely unknown. Vampire novels rarely go into the age of a vampire. Tao Lin avoids coffee to evaluate people around him because people-watching is a sport and he’s in it to win it. 

                Cayla Lockwood sleeps in other people’s beds when they are gone. Obviously Cayla Lockwood is familiar with the dormitory lifestyle. No two single beds are the same in college. Every college single has a special story to tell of love gained and lust lost. Wounds are full of calories yet are a great source of protein. Life is enough it is never more than enough. 

                Patricia Lockwood realizes the truth about Robin Hood. Less a person stealing from the rich to give to the poor, Robin Hood was more about making sweet love to trees. A lot of critiques for Kanye West’s most recent album “Yeezus” make perfect sense. If somebody samples a heartbeat who do they have to pay royalties to? Bodies are haunted by spirits, consciousness ones with life expectancies into the late seventies/early eighties. Pretzels are disturbed creatures turning tricks on themselves. Adobe flash player is responsible for life flashing before one’s eyes. 

                Carrie Lorig hopes for the warehouses of the world. Buildings are warehouses for people. Bird carbonation means the bird is fresh not flat ready to migrate. Fluorescence tastes phenomenal. Every day clouds float by making the creature feel lazy and too grounded. Sad mouths make good sweat lodges to sweat the sad out. Glad requires sweat equity to make it whole. Little flaps are typical in a world filled with contrasting opinions. 

                Warehouses of the world unite for tomorrow, the fourth day of the continuing epic coverage.

                What better start to the day than with an all-time favorite, one Michael-Hessel Mial from the grand old state of Georgia, one of the original 13? Imagery is important for the young artist, the master of the macro. 

                Michael-Hessel Mial worries about a dead Earth. Of course nobody wants Earth to die except Bizarro Earth. Bizarro Earth is a real uncool cat. Apparently Savannah, Georgia is beautiful because there is a special someone out there who outdoes the Southern grace of that fine city. Gifts to the future are ways of changing the future. Everything in the world makes up the biosphere the best living organism known to humanity, not to be confused with Pauly Shore’s award-winning documentary BioDome. Within every person is the ability to become the Horse Ebooks of the soul, but more on Horse Ebooks later.

Full-time Internet is a full-time job. Useless can never define the brilliant human as a spam bot that was @HORSE_EBOOKS. 

                Brett Elizabeth Jenkins washes a shirt and doesn’t. Wisely she avoids Chad a bro. The state of Colorado beckons her because Colorado is legit. Every seven years she sheds her skin to become someone new. Humans take a while to become whole, typically seven years is best. Lots of animals have the option to devour humans and opt not to. Humans are boney and barely have enough yummy meat for the predators of the world. 

                Raymond Johnson explains what poetry is. Published words in hot books are not poetry. What counts as poetry is the milk of human kindness, almond and soy flavors readily available. Decency is a thing that came up from evolution because animals need to work together a lot of the time. Humans are no different. Love can be poetry if it is strong enough. Stardust flows through the veins of the stars of the universe as they look on the world with interest. The world can be a harsh place with rules created for a select few with revisions by those trying to become the select few. Of course life does not need to be this hard but fairness is free and inequality costs a lot to upkeep. Powers that be continue to be the powers that be until they finally got stung hard enough. Aggressive positivity is the way to deal with the world because the world expects an uprising and is unaware of what an angry hug can do. 

                Hard to follow Raymond Johnson’s work so a break is needed. Next up on the YOLO Pages is the joy of the end of days.

Svarta Stugan - EP2: A mutation and a madness 7.8

                Svarta Stugan’s EP possesses real depth. Best during its darkest moments it straddles the ambient and rock worlds. Environmental noises are used to create truly excellent levels of tension. Moody, drifting, it packs a lot of turns within a small amount of time. To fully take advantage of every twist the way the EP weaves its way around sound is incredible. Long after the songs end they manage to linger deep into the mind. A deep sadness permeates the entire thing, of loss, of longing.

                ‘Os Sobreviventes’ starts off relatively unassuming with a bone dry guitar twang. Akin to post rock it vibrates alone before tasteful electronic elements filter themselves into the mix. The bloom from this level of loneliness into a fuller picture is incredibly sweet. Everything remains true to the overall tone of the piece. By the end the rage of the song is fully apparent with it apparently losing its original restraint. ‘Re-birth’ takes a less linear approach. For ‘Re-birth’ Svarta Stugan embodies anxiety perfectly. Horns wail. Drums work on mood more than on rhythm. Nothing appears to come together; it is completely free in its neurotic approach. 

                At the halfway point Svarta Stugan tries to collect itself. ‘Second Attempt’ has the stoic nature of the opening track re-assert itself. The only track with vocals it remains completely calm. How Svarta Stugan breaks this tension is phenomenal and makes ‘Second Attempt’ the highlight of the collection. ‘Slow Slow Slow’ serves as a proper send-off, nicely embodying everything that makes the EP so memorable: the drama, the mood, the build-up of mood, and the eventual cathartic release.

               Sadly today’s coverage comes to a close. Fortunately there are three additional days of coverage so that should be plenty. This one begins with that ever affable lad, Cean Gamalinda of Chicago fame (and fortune). 

                Cean Gamalinda knows you are his everything. A person is full of so much absorbed culture. With enough time a song becomes your song becomes ‘our song’. Movies are remembered for the experience of the person sitting on the other side watching it, laughing at it, with the experience used for reminiscence fodder much later on. Due to Cean Gamalinda’s great status in the world he is able to call up his mother with the greatest of ease. 

                Cassandra Gillig defends the Grinch who stole Christmas. Nobody ever looks at it from the Grinch’s point of view. Rather readers are too quick to judge. A terrible day is the day that a government would ban sex. The issue of a world without sex is too much to understand. Many things are based around the concepts of sex. Without sex there is no more advertising, or at least no more good advertising. Out of nowhere Cassandra Gillig becomes the Hello Kitty of Central Park. She gives a shout out to Theodor Adorno asking him to do the needful. 

                Amelia Gillis enjoys a good Shrek every now and then. Hand turkeys are beautiful things made for the holidays. Coffee is a want not a need. Sleep is underrated. Wakefulness is overrated. Lots of sleep makes the world a slothful place. Lion King moves people and helps them reach puberty (via the growing up a king of lions). Yes the glaciers were asking for it via their melting nature. If ice is in the sea that ice longs to be water. 

                Lara Glenum knows the weather likes laying eggs in the mind. Seasons work in mysterious ways. The right day simply ends the previous season because there is a reason for the end of every season. Horses with wooden laughter are typical horses trying to have a good time. Bodies made of techno are currently attractive to everyone. With enough techno a person can become digital. A world of poetry is see through because the emotions are laid bare and made clear. 

                Philip Gordon looks up at the moon. A romantic rock the moon longs to crash into the Earth getting closer through countless flirtations on tidal waves. The feeling of listening without understanding is what makes the educational system what it is today. Yes the world is too big for any one person’s problems. Generally the world is into problem-solving and hopes people listen to it more often. 

                Tom Hank wants everyone to have a great day. Friend of Wilson a Volleyball Tom Hank relates the secret of the Caesar salad, a bad guy but good salad. He takes time out of his busy movie-making schedule to update the world about his life. Air Bud is the bud of all the air. Every day a person gets one shot to be nice or mean. People take aim dependent on how they wake up. Not every day is going to be a nice one but hopefully by the end of life the good outweighs the bad. 

                Tom Hank said Wilson. Tom Hank is the hero that the world didn’t know it needed. Tom Hank sleeps he does not wait. He’s Tom Hank!

The YOLO Pages
                Welcome to day two of YOLO Pages coverage. A lot of readers might ask “Why so many posts about the YOLO Pages?” Of course the answer is: why not? There are few collections that so nicely put together all that is happening in the art world of the Internet world. 

                Brian Ecklund removes cats from a bag. Cats deserve their freedom. Inside of a bag is no place for a cat. Bags are for groceries. Cats are born to run, pounce and sleep. The world needs cats like the world needs all of its creatures. Ecosystems work together with everyone working together. Opposition to acceleration is a necessity to ensure the world is for everyone not simply humans. 

                Pancho Espinosa knows conversation is the best poetry. If the words flow out of a mouth naturally that is poetry and it is perfect. Humans are connected to every living creature. The more humans realize it the more power they can give up to animals that rightly deserve to be treated with equality. Devotion is an instinct that has led to the survival of nearly every animal currently living on Earth. 

                Joshua Espinoza writes about God. The pronouns differ depending on what she writes regarding God. Many exegetes believe there are two Gods one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. When brought together they show different evolutions of how humanity views itself: from a harsh unforgiving point of view and from a more caring compassionate point of view. Neither has been proven or dis-proven they are simply theories attempting to explain the unexplainable. Deep in the smog are dreams that never made their way to reach the sky’s limit. Rather they are stuck beneath the new pollution which is different from the older, non-Beck influenced pollution. Orange breaks through the clouds for a new day greater than the last and with more Tang.

                Catalina Gallagher is thrilled by deleting unread emails. Power is given to those willing to delete the unread emails in their lives. Humanity ought to be genetically similar to barn owls at least the rural night owls who toil away at night at nothing in particular. New things belong in the bedroom, things like race car beds and helicopters, truly cool hip things. Life hacks help people hack it in the real world. Dating sites are basically LinkedIn profiles without the endorsed skills and with more alluring photos. Humans are lucky to be smart plants, plants that can blog. In Japan plants literally blog and hopefully the rest of the world can start getting corn stalks to blog. If a corn stalk begins to blog in Kansas does that mean the farmer will continue to get farm subsidies? 

                James Ganas introduces a former life as a ventriloquist. People love ventriloquists just a slight notch more than mimes. Every day is a great day to leave the suburbs. At this point the suburbs practically beg their inhabitants to move out. Waking up is the easiest thing to do when there is no real reason to wake up. The art world needs to help the world; the world has no reason to help art. A tortured artist is a selfish one. Finally the defense of macros happens; a life without macros is not a fun one by any means. Words have enough benefit it is nice to see love given to the surroundings. 

                James Ganas is the Frasier of Alt Lit. A wise man once said that. That wise man was me. I believe James Ganas is the Frasier of Alt Lit and nothing he does can possibly change that.

Maxwell August Croy and Sean McCann – I 8.2

                Maxwell August Croy and Sean McCann create a warm web of sound with ‘I’. Throughout the collection there is a sense of continuous movement. Much of this is due to the extreme attention paid to sound texture. Beneath the strings there are souls and their focus shines through with a clarity that is startling. Within the pieces are elements that indicate tenderness. Recording techniques allow the listener to feel closer to the music as if the music was right there, with the creaking instruments bleating their happy hearts out. 

                A sense of belonging begins ‘Parting Lights (Suite)’ which starts with shimmering bright tones. The energy behind it is rather incredible. For all of the hard work though the song appears to herald a bright spring coming from the death of winter. Eventually it grows hyperactive with an incredibly frantic finale. On ‘Alexandria’ they take a quieter approach akin to classical drone. Sweet it soars with tones akin to an aurora borealis. Volume comes down quite a bit for the slumbering silence of ‘The Inlet Arc’ which rests comfortably. By drifting about it manages to explore new territory, taking everything down from up on high. 

                ‘Column of Mirror’ is almost sorrowful in its static beginnings. Additional attention is required to find the strokes of sound that fall out of the uniform piece. Upon the inclusion of a deep bass texture the thing gains new poignancy. ‘Hollow Pursuits’ finishes the album off with playful plucking as the rest of the sounds settle around.

The YOLO Pages


                Ah yes what better way to continue the hot off the presses YOLO Pages coverage than with a piece featuring the phrase YOLO. Yes that is exactly what Liz Bowen does!

                Liz Bowen is wow. Her explanation about YOLO is perfect. To be positive is not an easy thing ever. Problems are always going to exist in the world. By taking on those issues the world can become better. Negativity is such an easy thing to rely on because it requires little work. Of course sadness will always be a part of life. Sadness gets downright beautiful right after it goes away when a positive thing happens and suddenly the days of awfulness can pass even for a moment. 

                Melissa Broder understands that love means in sickness and in health. Easy enough with healthiness love is harder with the sickness. Regret comes with death. With death someone asks typically if the dead want fries with that. Death is a commercial enterprise and gets lots of free press via the obituaries. Houseplants need to have a bit of the wild side brought into them. That’s what makes them a nice approximation of nature. 

                Jos Charles gets the truth about pop psychology and Hugh Grant. Few ever want to confront Hugh Grant. Life with Hugh Grant is unbearable yet there he is on the big screen doing the same thing without an end in sight. Suffering is a rough thing and works like sandpaper: smoothing out the roughness in life. Early on babies cry but with enough experience they gradually learn the horrible truths of the world and figure out which are the ones worth the tears and which ones are ones that can be stopped. Love letters in the sky consist of the sunrise and sunset. When the sun leaves it knows it will be back and when the sun comes back it knows it will leave. Cyclical everything with enough rotations the world gradually changes. The awfulness of the world can overwhelm yet it does get better but it takes effort. 

                Richard Chiem survives. The worst happens without any warning. A normal day happens right before the surreal. Remember the worst because the best will seem so much better in comparison. Life does it all the time. Faking out people is a terrible thing injury does before it adds the insult. Doctors try to prevent the worst since they see the worst on a daily basis. Less jaded doctors are more sensitive to the needs of the downtrodden. 

                Santino Dela sells pizza poems. They are pizzas that are pure poetry. Yes pizzerias across the world are poetry powerhouses. Life is meant to be changed every day. Greatness needs work and that is why people practice. Nobody is born perfect nor will they ever become perfect. Enough work eventually manifests itself in the beauty of the world. 

                Of course like all good blog coverage this one ends with a pizza. Day one is done. The other days will be here shortly. YOLO Pages has no lack of coverage from the bloggable Beach Sloth.

The YOLO Pages

                Ah yes what better way to continue the hot off the presses YOLO Pages coverage than with a piece featuring the phrase YOLO. Yes that is exactly what Liz Bowen does!

                Liz Bowen is wow. Her explanation about YOLO is perfect. To be positive is not an easy thing ever. Problems are always going to exist in the world. By taking on those issues the world can become better. Negativity is such an easy thing to rely on because it requires little work. Of course sadness will always be a part of life. Sadness gets downright beautiful right after it goes away when a positive thing happens and suddenly the days of awfulness can pass even for a moment.

The YOLO Pages
                The YOLO Pages is the book of a movement with hope behind it. Artistically it is quite the endeavor. Many, many years ago Steve Roggenbuck talked of such a book, one epic in undertaking that would offer a ‘taste’ of what people were doing with online literature. Lots of takes have occurred since then most of them exclusively online. Upon founding Boost House the Boost House team began working on a Walt Whitman sampler book and The YOLO Pages. Let me say the following with pure sincerity:

                I have never been so excited in my entire life for such a collection. Reading the YOLO Pages has changed my life. Years of my life I have spent reading online literature seems to have reached a wonderful peak with the YOLO Pages. Everyone who is included in the YOLO Pages deserves the spot and hopefully this is only the beginning. 

                Anybody interested in what new art is being created online really ought to get this book. A beautiful carefully curated and edited collection, the YOLO Pages is the book that the Internet needed. With that let me begin probably one of my favorite reviews of all time. Many thanks to Steve Roggenbuck, Emily Elizabeth Scott, Joseph Kendrick, Rachel Younghans and of course Charlie for putting in the time needed to make this such a compelling document. 

                Adefisayo Adeyeye tries to polish up the sky. Next to Belarus the polish sky feels okay about life in general. Flowers are full of lips stamens ready to receive bumbling bees happy to create new beautiful things. Colors to insects are more incredible than any mere human could possibly comprehend. To a human a flower is pretty, to a bee a flower is life. Homes enjoy housing their happy inhabitants. Homes dream of all the wonderful creatures that have gone through doors, seen the world from their eyes. Up on high the sun captures it all happy to arrive a few minutes late right on time. Funerals are held for tiny voices for the sound lasts for a moment before it goes away. People orbit each other for humanity is a bunch of satellites looking for heavenly bodies to call their own.

                I’m here! Thank you happy people at Boost House for going through my massive stream of online consciousness! 

                Gabby Bess becomes a miniature bear. This happens all the time. One moment people are people, the next they are bears. Happy bears hibernate together on beds content with the blankets that have been provided. Ceilings need their necklaces, chandeliers as the sophisticated call them. Lil Bouncy is the tightest rapper in the game. Anybody who lives life on a bouncy ball is living the dream of a five year old child. Internet life creates a crisis because the Internet life demands people all of the time. Social networking is a web people weave because actual weaving has gone out of fashion. 

                For such a fine collection the fun continues. This is merely the beginning of the week-long boosted extravaganza that is the YOLO Pages coverage.
