Who is Xenu?

Everytime I look at Tom Cruise now I think, ‘That man thinks he’s a piece of lava.’ A piece of lava that exploded when the volcano was destroyed that the evil space alien Xenu put you in because you, yourself, were just so much space trash. Some of these actors and actresses who all contend to be pieces of lava can be so damn charismatic – but I look at the cover of their movies in the video store and just think:

BUT YOU THINK YOU’RE A FUCKING PIECE OF LAVA! HOW CAN I EVER TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY AGAIN YOU FRICKIN’ DUMBASS!

The Pursuit of Happyness? Starring a piece of lava. How does a piece of lava go from down and out to rich and successful? I don’t care. Can’t get past the lava. Xenu? For real? Are you fucking kidding me?

Interview with Samuel Delany

Stefen Styrsky: You are one of the greats of contemporary science fiction and fantasy (SF/F) literature. You identify as gay. You are also black. Where do the three meet, and more importantly, where do they diverge?

Samuel R. Delany: They touch each other everywhere. But what they don’t do is overlap in some totally congruent way. I’m black; I’m gay; I’m a science fiction writer. That is to say, all three have histories, are a part of the history of my life. It’s even useful to talk about some parts of those histories apart from the others. At other places, such a separation is hopelessly distorting. [more]

Dhalgren is one of my favorite books–I have my copy and another of his short stories signed to Dr. Menlo, I’m honored to say. Me and Pagan went up to see him at Bailey/Coy on Broadway in Seattle last year.
