Somethings to be Followed by Otherthings

Congratulations to Matthew Simmons, winner of Sycamore Review's Wabash Fiction Prize for his story entitled "Saxophone Lung Explodes." I love that title. This year's judge was Richard Bausch, of whose short stories I am an enthusiastic fan. I'm excited to read Matthew's story.

Here is a piece by Alexandra Kleeman in DIAGRAM 8.2 that I enjoyed.

Today is thunderstorms and toad sprockets in syrup.

Here is a short film by Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel entitled Un chien andalou (1929). The first scene depicts a woman's eyeball being slit open with a razor blade. Makes the stomach do jumping jacks.

André Breton had a pudgy face and leaky eyes.

Max Ernst shaved with animal hooves.

Mosquito nostrils.
