Author Bio & Stories

  • David Young's sprawling, well-researched and amusingly scummy Arrogance and Scheming in the Big Ten: Michigan State’s Quest for Membership and Michigan’s Powerful Opposition is a history of two schools at their worst and most craven, but also a backhanded tribute to some not very good, but very stubborn priorities.

  • It doesn't necessarily seem like good news, at least from a singularity/rise-of-the-robots perspective, that Yahoo has a team of robo-writers churning out reams of fantasy football copy. The good news, though, is that these robot-crafted fantasy football recaps read as if they were written by and for strange fifth graders. 

  • In which an especially avant-garde spam comment about Justin Bieber, skateboarding, and (mostly) misused words inspires our spam poets to go above and beyond, into the realm of experimental diptychs and spoken word. It's weird.

  • Today's spam poesy is perhaps the most ambitious entry in the field yet: a simultaneous inversion of and tribute to an especially avant-garde Oakley-spamming comment, repurposed here into a tribute to Classical favorites and official minor league soccer team, The Baltimore Bohemians. You're crazy for this one, Logan K. Young.
