Blender of Love Digest March 2001

Marching on...

Another month, and everything I have to say has probably been said on last month's Blender Board... it's been interesting times there, partially in the Fake Chinese Proverb sense of the phrase.

Some really great works this month for the 'Front Page Picks', and a good if dark novel for the Featured Artist Review.

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper

Front Page Picks
The wrong way home By Argyle.
Submitted by deevaa. Raw, wonderful.
I Want the Moon! By B.K..
An intriguing little ramble, well-crafted.
In Praise of Sharks By Tanqueray Cowboy.
We had some shark infested waters last month. The final stanza is a brilliant response to some of that.
Gate 2B By laurel.
Kind of rough prose piece, but with details that make it work, especially if you've waited up with "someone" at the airport.
sixguns By the guppy.
Look at me, I'm a cowboy! Howdy Howdy Howdy! (Sorry guppy, it's actually a terrific little work.)
Ellipsis By Toklas blee@direct.ca.
This isn't a tribute to the little dots... sometimes we use them too much... kind of lazy of us... luckily this work is able to complete its thoughts.
We hardly ever fought By Christopher D. Lake.
A little scratchy in places, I like the last few lines.
'Aint Got No Firewood Blues By scqueen.
Ties into a fine old tradition of songs.
Valentine Ridge By Lisa Shields.
Submitted by Galadrial60. You know, an old romance of mine and I used 'pasta' as a metaphor as well.
Link to the Envelope By Dunno.
Submitted by Michael. I'd like to encourage more people to submit links to good romantic works, like this odd sweet little japanese tale.
Untitled By Courtney.
The search for revelation.
gardenias By Madison.
Such an elegant ending.
Silent All These Years By Tori Amos.
Submitted by Misti Lake. Personally I've always grooved on the "jeans of his with her name still on it" line though I'm not 100% what it means.
First kiss By Me aka Niki.
Story of a Smooch.
Fade to Grey By Rae-Baby.
Nice mood set here.
p.s. By perry.
Ending with a brief letter with quite an ending.
Heart on Sleeve Corner
607 heartsongs sent to the Blender last month.
