the epitome of the German punk community

The Wall Street Journal ob-
serves, subject to rational

analysis, that a giant radio-
active sea creature threatens

the merger between the Yoox
& Net-a-Porter shopping apps.

A line from Ruby Rose

We've handpicked the best bits,
in colors that feel comfortable
in second-hand shops & so
won't affect the shopping ex-

perience. Even a sectarian
militant organization like ours
can be an ethical & sustainable
company, & we've always had

really good style. Remember,
when buying transitional pieces,
to think elastic waistbands. They
have a calming effect when used.

close contact with Russian intelligence

Soft rocks are usually de-
fined mathematically by

how well they simulate
the appearance of other

types of mottled stone, or
how well they cope with

a texture like popcorn in
the midst of random noise.

the Knitting Central Sock Club

The disarray was as I
had remembered it. Cables
everywhere, a mottled
black bag as stand-in for
the black flag of anarchy.

I designed this pattern for
inaugural demonstrations
involving several protest
groups. Social disorder
as a procedural device.

it takes months—sometimes years—to

DoNut T®ump's energetic performance berating Australian Pram Minister Malcontent Turnipball caused his boob to fall out – not that it stopped him from putting on an amazing show · the Precedent told a prayer breakfast that, to promote hair growth, he takes a prostate drug found on an ancient & lost continent lurking beneath the island of Mauritius · US Defense Secretary Stained Mattress has started his first trip abroad by reassuring Arnold Schwarzenegger that his position at the helm of The Apprentice is still safe & that he still has the United States' continued support · NASA astronaut Scott Kelly returns from space younger than he left · radio shock jock Howard Stern has opined that the impact of being commander-in-chief would be detrimental to the Precedent's mental health, if he had any.

The latest issue of Otoliths is live.

Issue forty-four of Otoliths has hit the hustings.

I had hoped to get the Mormon Tabernacle Choir &/or The Radio City Rockettes to announce this issue, but they were otherwise occupied, recovering from the realization that they had just provided the accompaniment to the beginning of an era that threatens to turn its back on the Gettysburg address & replace it with the rhetoric of the Nuremberg Rallies of the 1920s & 1930s.

So, as counter to a possible future that strikes me as best described by Dante's Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'entrate, I simply offer a wonderful selection of work from around the world. Included in this issue are Eileen R. Tabios, Sheila E. Murphy, Steve Dalachinsky, Andrew Topel, Brandon Nakasato, Cecelia Chapman, David Lohrey, C. R. E. Wells, Norman M. Gendelman, Texas Fontanella, Philip Byron Oakes, Caitlin Rose Doyle, Keith Walker, John Xero, David Dick, Kyle Hemmings, Mary Claire Garcia, Jesse Glass, Arpine Konyalian Grenier, Philip Elliott, Sanjeev Sethi, sean burn, Kirk Robinson & Garin Cycholl & William Allegrezza, Bill Wolak, Pete Spence, Jim Leftwich, John M.
