“The Rabbit Catcher” for Tommy

July 17, 2009
by Jess Paps
One of my favorite poems, a favorite of Tommy’s too, is “The Rabbit Catcher” by Sylvia Plath.  The poem symbolically marks the end of her marriage to Ted Hughes and the beginning of a new poetic voice and style. The following passage is entirely from a book I’m reading called Her Husband by Diane Middlebrook, in which the author is fascinated by the dialogue that occured between the two poets in their work. They often borrowed and altered images from each other’s work to communicate in highly personal puzzles- The Rabbit Catcher is one example. Enjoy!

Fanny Och Alexander

June 3, 2009

By Jess

I’ve found that some of the most difficult life moments occur in those quiet nighttime hours before bed- when the mind runs where it will, without distraction, and forces reflection (often self criticism) on our day, our life, and the shape things take.

One way I’ve learned to cope with obsessive and anxious nighttime thoughts is to watch a film– and in that escape or fantasy, I have learned to allow myself complete happiness and containment, even if it’s only for two hours.


Last night I watched Fanny and Alexander, Ingmar Bergman’s 1982 homage to his early 20th Century childhood. The film was intended to be and was Bergman’s last. He is my favorite director and as usual his story centers on family, existentialism, love, death, materialism, class and gender role struggle, the destruction of traditional marriage, etc… all from the vantage point of himself as a child and as an elderly director at the end of a long career.

Hasselhoff Drunk

Hey I puked all over myself! – m4w

Date: 2009-05-26, 12:25PM EDT
Hey remember me, I’m the ginger who puked on myself? I’m sure you remember me because I was aggressively hitting on you using the fact that I had just vomited as a pick up line. Even though my eyes were watering and I was wearing my barf for a beard I could tell you were into me. You were dark haired and from what I could over here you talking to the bartender about your name is Gwen and you bartend over at Santo’s. That guy was a total lame wad hipster, he totally killed our vibe. Get back to me soon because I spend the better part of my summer following the Black Crows tour selling pipes


Cute ConED (possibly Scam artist) Guy – m4m – 24 (Brooklyn)

On Friday evening you stopped by my apartment asking if we wanted a reduction in our energy bill. One of my roommates had to go get our coned info and you told me and my friend (who is straight) that we looked pretty fly. You also said we smelled good. You seemed like you were flirting? Maybe I was just high? Maybe you were too? Read the rest of this entry »

A positive message from 1984

May 21, 2009

Today Mr. T turns 57! Happy Birthday Mr. T! Now that I revisit you I think you might have a mental illness but that’s beside the point… I thought I’d use yr b-day as an opportunity to share one of your greatest contributions to pop culture- and one of my favorite songs: Treat Your Mother Right!

There is no other
Like Mother
So treat Her right
I always Love Her
My Mother
So treat Her right, treat her right!
