on the fence

Making it nude, not new, Rebecca Wolff claims "experimental marketing" but shouldn't credit go to Hugh Hefner as Father of Tit-lit? What do you think bloggerissimo?

Seems an inversion of the Hef formula. Maybe I got it wrong, but Hef, a would-be sophisicate, seemed to court literature to legitimate the tits. This seems to go the other way. I think I'll wait till the local bookstore rips the covers off for return and just get the pages before I trot down to the local pornorama for the coverless glossies there.

i agree that reb (quite like hef as an abbreviation) wants us to read tit as an inversion, but if tit's an inversion, then that means reb's using tits to legtitimate titerature? so rather than a would-be sophistiticate, wolff's what?

I don't think HH ever courted lit - if anything the inverse was/is true. And regardless - the last thing tits need to legitimate them is literature... Tits rise (and fall) on their own merit. That's why we like 'em so darn much.

i think poetry should have more tits, more drugs, more flab. it seems like squaresville of late and it's 2005. take of the mandals and write something titty.

Just because everyone's doing tit is no reason to be doing tit. Any increase in sales this month will be milk money, spoilt and unpalatable, ransacked from the rack of Miss Quinne.

I dunno...it's a lovely cover, and, to my tastes, their best issue yet in terms of the poems--great ones by Graham, Davis, Ball, Schomberg. I guess something in me longs for a time when some things were still sacred, but I don't really remember that time, or maybe I remember it and it had more to do with me than the world.

I think that it is a wonderful cover. with a wonderful girl on the cover. who happens to have her top off. the fact that the cover has created such an uproar is telling of our times
