I don't think it's so much of an opposition as a kind of symbiosis. The ease of distribution and access provided by the internet is amazing for people who produce anything, from poetry to 3D animation. But I still have a—possibly quaint—belief in the concrete object lending a greater meaning and import to texts and images by way of it's materiality.Also, bhuja mix is delicious.s
You used the wrong "it's" so that makes your argument void.
Bein' a cheeky bitch hehe
i like poetry in both places, although i prefer to read long-form stuff on the page rather than the screen because it's easier on the eyes also when at the computer it's 1000x easier to get distracted (i subconsciously click on my bookmarks while reading stuff all the time, it's a problem i have). it's easier to get your poetry on many screens than in many hands, unless you self-publish 1000s of copies and hand them out to people for free. paper may feel more 'real' and 'official' but it still feels p damn good to see your poem published on someone's site.
I am all for both of them.
All of it. Agree with the computer eyes/bookmarks thing too though.
i read more poetry online than offline simply because it is more easily available. but like a lot of things that are easily available, it can become less valuable. however a good poem is good regardless of whether you read it in print or on the screen. i like to buy poetry chapbooks because it does feel special. i like something i can hold in my hand. but i mean, online poetry is the way of the future. s'all about the internet.also i like the term "computer eyes". seems flirtatious.
Reading a poem on the internet is like getting naked with the lights on.
I always use the wrong its/it's.Also I firmly believe in getting naked with the lights on. It's good to check potential mates for prison tattoos before you do anything too rash.Actually, it's probably good to check for rashes too.
