Paul O'Donovan : "Pirate Jenny and the Black Freighter"

Hi all,

This has been a busy month once more.

I have had problems with the sending of the latest report of February-March, as it comes out that a number of people have not rceived it. I used my gmail account for it. Technicly I found it great to include the pictures and illustrations, but apparently the efficiency of the transmission of the mails remains to be improved.

I used it because the emails  which I use with Outlook have been usurpated, and some of my mails arrive in the spambox of the receivers, and others are deleted. Though as I send a copy to the Interzone Coffee House as well, the members of the club got it.

The following infos have been published when I receive them in the site Interzone news

Interzone forum

So I have created a forum for the Zone : Interzone forum at allowing to get in touch without mails. It contains a number of categories and forums; you can also create new forums. It also contains a chat-room which can welcome a large number of people. It also is possible to join other members by private messages. It's the most effective and practical tool which I have ever seen for a community.

Feel free to register, it's easy.  Once you have registered, you have to validate your registration by mail and there you are. Then you can publish your info directly in it.

For me this forum should be helpful for the Zone's administration, easier than making web pages a number of sites. The old sites of Interzone are full up, so I have created new ones with Google pages : Interzone  Galleries, Interzone Reports and Interzone Editions, which is not on line yet, but will host the info on the new Interzone Editions. 


Interzone news  

Interzone news at now hosting the info which comes to me, instead of Interzone news and blogs  in My space which I do not use anymore, but which I keep as archives and to keep in touch with other Zoners' sites in My Space. 

Interzone reports in Google pages :

I have created a new site with Google pages to host the reports because  the other ones are packed. The reports of January and February-March 2008 are there at and From the front page at you can access to all the Zone's reports since the start in August 1997.

I am writing this report directly in the site, and it reveals much easier and quicker to realize than with the previous tool I used in the other sites.

The reports will also be hosted in the forum.

"Friends of Authors Audio,

I hope this letter finds you well and the interviews at Authors Audio are helping you market your books. I have just updated the Archive section of the website. Please click on the "Archive Interviews" section on the homepage to find your listing. You may link your website to the Authors Audio site , by downloading a Banner , as above. Upcoming authors will see their information shortly in the " Upcoming Authors " section of the site.

 From time to time I need to ask our participants and friends, to help support the program by donating to the site. All of the expenses, time and effort are currently out of pocket. Authors Audio is growing and new authors are coming fast and furious, which is good news for all of us. If you can help us, simply visit the website and donate by accessing Paypal through the icon on the site. You may use your credit card or your Paypal account to do this.

 I am hoping that through the efforts of my program and others we can help to connect the public to today's new literature, new ideas, poetry and the discussion of the important issues of our day. It is so important that books play a significant part in the developing of new ideas and the expressing of the creative vitality of our modern culture. This is especially true for kids and young adults now. Certainly we cannot expect television and many other forms of communication to do this job. Unfortunately the general media has almost been completely taken over for financial interests alone.

 Here are just a few new Authors and Poets coming soon to Authors Audio. They will be listed in the Upcoming Authors section in the next few days.

 Duff Brenna (Mamie)

Jack Marshall (From Baghdad to Brooklyn) 

Thomas Kennedy (Riding the Dog , A Look Back at America) 

Rita Trevalyan (Roman Rhapsody) 

Jim Berkland (The Man Who Predicts Earthquakes )  

Carl Calleman (Understanding the Mayan Calendar)

 I am currently working on possible interviews with ex-President, Jimmy Carter and current Presidential candidate, Ralph Nader.

 I thank you all for your participation and your help. May the force be with us."

Brian Jones 40th Anniversary in Joujouka

The story
On 29th July 1968 Brian Jones came to Joujouka with Brion Gysin, Mohamed Hamri and engineer George Chkiantz to record an album with the Master Musicians of Joujouka.
The resulting LP was the first release on Rolling Stones Records in 1971 "Brian Jones presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka".
To mark the 40th anniversary of this historic recording, the Master Musicians of Joujouka are staging a celebratory festival on 29th July 2008. The musicians will perform the Sufi healing music of Joujouka and, after dinner, the night will be filled with a full performance of the musicians' Boujeloud Rite, which is likened to the ancient Rites of Pan.

"Beirut and Media Art todayPresentation by Ricardo Mbarkho
In his lecture, Ricardo Mbarkho talks about today's media art scene in Beirut. He also shows a selection of videos where many approaches are tackled to question the identity crisis in today's Lebanese socio-political and cultural sphere. The war on Lebanon since 1975 remains a major concern for the multicultural Lebanese society. Today, Lebanon is witnessing one of its tensest political divisions, and failed to elect a president able to bridge the gap between the current government and the opposition. The impact between the Middle East conflict, the media system and art is raised by Mbarkho from the geographical and the historical angles."

Cut-Outs and Cut-Ups: Hans Christian Andersen and William Seward Burroughs
Joujouka Black Eyes by The Master Musicians of Joujouka is the soundtrack to the Dreamachine in this show

"Focusing on the cut-outs and cut-ups of Hans Christian Andersen and William Seward Burroughs, Cut-Outs and Cut-Ups: Hans Christian Andersen and William Seward Burroughs is the first exhibition to compare these legendary writers and fascinating, but little-known, visual artists. Hailing from different origins and different periods, Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) and William Seward Burroughs (1914-1997) nevertheless shared many significant connections. Both were highly productive and revolutionary writers, intrepid travelers and larger-than-life personalities who developed important collaborative relationships. They were visionaries, who had a deep and long engagement with the visual arts.

Though Andersen and Burroughs are known largely for their literary masterpieces, their visual work, has to date received little exposure. Key to the 124 works in this exhibition is the artists’ mutual engagement with cutting-out pictures and stencils which involve silhouettes and shadows. Their use of brilliant colours and metallic surfaces relate closely to their writings. The Andersen material consists of a wide range of drawings, cut-outs and picture books containing his original collages. The Burroughs artworks include paintings on paper and wood, collaborative projects with lifelong friend, the artist Brion Gysin – these include pages for The Third Mind, 1978, as well as their legendary Dreamachine.
Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense, Denmark, in 1805, the son of a washerwoman and a shoemaker. At the age of 14 he moved to Copenhagen to pursue an acting career. Between 1822 and 1827 he attended the Slagelse and Helsingør Grammer Schools. Throughout his life he wrote a number of plays and travel books inspired by his ongoing travels in Europe, and is best known for his popular fairytales such as The Little Mermaid, The Red Shoes and The Ugly Duckling. The majority of his visual works, including the picture books, date from the 1850s to his death in Copenhagen in 1875. William Seward Burroughs was born in 1914 in St Louis to a wealthy family. He studied at Harvard and travelled to Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Morocco between 1945 and 1950. Appropriating the cut-up technique developed by Gysin in the 1950s, Burroughs produced some of his most influential writings, extending the language first developed in his groundbreaking novel Naked Lunch, 1959. While living in Paris, London, New York and Lawrence, Kansas - where he died in 1997 - Burroughs never stopped experimenting with writing, film, sound and visual art.
The exhibition is curated by Hendel Teicher, independent curator and art historian.
A fully-illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition. Contributors include notable Andersen and Burroughs scholars Jens Andersen, Francine Prose, Raymond Foye and José Ferez Kuri. The catalogue also includes texts by Hans Christian Andersen and William Seward Burroughs, an essay by Hendel Teicher and a foreword by Enrique Juncosa, Director, IMMA.
