COGITATE 3 - "Mr. Dog"

This episode deals with crime, punishment and monsters who are just babies on the inside.

 

Perk up your ears + hear the 411 from Joe DiPrisco, a Brooklyn boy whose family fled the FBI; Emily Baxter, Director of We Are All Criminals; and Tomas Moniz, author of the books Rad Dad: Dispatches from Fatherhood and Bellies and Buffalos as well as founder, editor, and a writer for the award winning zine Rad Dad. 

 “Most men and women have stories to tell.

Life be pourin’ out ‘em, like trains skippin’ off rails.

Movies tell stories I wish I could live.”

“A literary contest is like a full moon. It casts a striking and comforting glow across the bleak sky, and turns a small number of people into werewolves.”

Chris Baker: COG Videogame & Literature Review II

Anger management is working out well for Chris Baker, former WIRED Magazine Angry Nerd, so we're delighted to announce that he's been able to review more videogames and poetry for COG - and avoid arrest.

In this video, Chris examines the The Witness, a game that sets you loose on an uninhabited island, as well as the Sylvia Plath's "feel-good" poem, "Daddy." 

Tune in - if you dare.

Noticing buku poetry in Issue 3?

We hope so – given that this is spring, people, and April was National Poetry Month.
