It’d love to be there…

It really would be a great thing for me to attend such literary tours.  You know, see those great young writers read in front of you.  Well, that’s what’s Opium Magazine is doing at the moment.  They went to Beijing some days back and here’s the insider’s account.  I love those insider’s report, don’t you?

Todd Zuniga, editor of the literary magazine and one of the “performers” in Beijing, is a pretty nice guy.  At least, that’s the impression I get when we correspond by email once in a while.  I have huge respect for the guy and wish him luck with Opium Magazine.  It’s great.  Keep it up people.

I’m a fan.  And oh yeah, if you happen to be in Paris or London, do check Opium’s world tour event schedule.  Those guys may be near you and trust me, you don’t want to miss them.

Update:  I love this photo: like a movie poster! Hope they don’t mind.  Well, I’m giving them some publicity, man!

As for the photo above: Kesey and Koch are standing. Leary and Zuniga are in crouch position. In the background you see a lone house amidst a field of ruin. Houses used to be there, but now only one remains. The residents refuse to move out, and the building plans by the government are on hold until they agree to move out. It’s really, really weird. The area is huge, and only that one house still remains.
