separated at birth

Nikki's mother, Joanne, swears she had only one, but I don't know...

These pics come from the very exciting launch of Line Books at Spartacus last week. Congratulations Roger, Natalie, Reg, and Garry! And big big kudos to Mike Barnholden and Glen Lowry. This is a big deal for West Coast potes.

a nod to global nodes

There is some cool stuff happening in Oz. Here's a performance artist/writer from Down Under who does some really interesting racegender twisty stuff. I especially like the story about suitmation:
Tom Cho

Found out about him from Deborah Madsen, a Switzerland-based Canadianist who has written a very thoughtful entry on my work for the Greenwood Encyclopedia of Asian American Writers. (I'm not sure how I feel about the way we racialized Canucks become American overseas, but it seems to be standard practice.)

Enjoying these global connections. Thinking through a piece now on the newly privileged (but also reified) mobility of certain kinds of racialization and the exceptional abuse of kindred kinds.
