Finnegan finagle


Her book imagines Norma Desmond leading the Donner party or something

Jordana  finnegan it says Has been at foothill College for 14 years and cochair of the English department for about a year and a half. I wrote about her previously then took it down then wrote about it again or indirectly without using her name and then she morphed into Eric Bachmann or an Eric Bachmann character. But I  like Eric Bachmann and practically worship him and I don’t like Jordana Finnegan – – tho Bub said she’s nice.

In 2014 my second try or third try at city Council stab in the dark or very faint step into the light as it were and on a whim I enrolled in a course at the esteemed community college about social justice and literature. I was grasping at ways to articulate the frustration of the average voter here even here, what became the residentialist movement parentheses Tim Gray and I jumpstarted although it was founded by Emily Rentzal and Edith Pearson in 1964.

A highlight of the class Was Steinbeck tortilla flat, although I still prefer in dubious battle.  We read tortilla curtain which only time will tell. Although Kent Manske led a collaborative take on that using the printing press and art concepts and TMW before I knew her was part of that.

The lowlight and where I started flinging mud Is Jeannette walls glass castle which eventually became a movie I will never see I hope unless they tie me down like in Clockwork Orange — Which reminds me if you excuse the digression I want to see a really bad version of one of my favorite fiction books Jonathan lethem motherless Brooklyn — Actually took place simultaneous or close enough to my sojourn in Gowanus  and not as the movie would suggest during the McCarthy era which is more like my dad’s youth or salad days.

Another little light of my output was the final in which I attempted to write about Joe Portugal in black dialect although Jordana did say maybe I should take a course in creative writing which I guess presaged me taking a memoir with Lynn Stegner in Stanford —  course even though they sort of botched be writing experimental essays.

Months later I noticed somehow that Jordana in her own blog had talked about me and saying I was very angry or something like that which totally was not true and then when I contacted her she said to me like don’t ever contact me again I guess you accuse me of cyber stocking or something   So to me even with the flood (An advanced degree — but il alluding back to March 1995, below—  she is sort of a prude, paranoid, and simple minded.  But likely smarter than me I guess or better adjusted, Plus or minus the hands we are dealt, or lack.

Anyhow it pops up when I wrote this morning about Fabricoh.

That plus I ran into  Laura Chavez —we met and Janis Stevenson’s wonderful and legendary course on the blues.

It’s the spin on her chit  that makes us nervous
