I guess I use Twitter now; seems useful from a promotional standpoint. #practicingbrevity

The Crazy Exes from Hell @ Bloc 11

The Crazy Exes are playing a show at Bloc 11 in Somerville on Wednesday, May 11th. We go on at 6:30, so if you wanted you could catch us and still make it to the Cantab in time to sign up to read on the open mic.

Bloc 11 is a cafe in Union Square with a great (music) open mic night of its own on Thursdays, hosted by the unflappable Kristen Ford. They also make amazing soup--last time I was there I had this apple fennel soup that flat-out knocked me down. And I do not just hand out compliments about soup! That's serious. But I didn't really fall down.

Breadcrumb Scabs

Two of my poems appear in the latest issue of Breadcrumb Scabs. You can read it online for free or purchase the hard copy for about six dollars.

Within three days, you will be able to get here by going to www.stevesubrizi.com. It came to my attention that there was a prettier girl in school.

I have an author page on Goodreads now. So there's that.

What else? I've been making a lot of matzoh bark lately. All you do is melt some chocolate chips in a big pan with canola oil and a little salt, then dunk strips of matzoh in it and lay them out on some wax paper, then stick it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Boom. Happy Pesach.

Orange Matzoh Brei

I posted a matzoh brei recipe a couple years ago that I still endorse, but I just got the idea for this new one from the French toast recipe from The Vegan Stoner (it's miles of easy recipes with adorable illustrations! Go to there).

I'll acknowledge that some people are against sweet matzoh brei; I obviously don't belong to that camp. Here's a fine article about that issue that also includes a recipe. But that recipe isn't vegan--mine is.

  • matzoh
  • orange juice
  • rice milk (soy milk, almond milk, whatever)
  • vanilla
  • maple syrup
  • cinnamon
  • walnuts (optional)
  • oil or margarine for frying
  1. In a large bowl, mix together equal parts orange juice and rice milk, enough to cover the amount of matzoh you want to use. Add a spoonful of maple syrup and a dash of vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Break apart the matzoh and soak it in the mixture for 5-7 minutes, until soft.
  3. Fry on a large pan for about 3 minutes until lightly browned. Stir frequently.
  4. Get out the jelly, the syrup, the margarine, and/or the powdered sugar, and rejoice.

The Souls of Fossils

My EP/chapbook illustrated by Sophia Holtz, The Souls of Fossils, is now available on Bandcamp. So you can listen to it for free, or even download it if you pay me.

For an enhanced listening experience, you can read the corresponding poem and see the corresponding illustration to each track if you click on its name instead of hitting "play."

And if you purchase the whole shebang, you get a bonus track: it's a Sean Conlon cover!

Jade Sylvan

My friend Jade Sylvan recorded an album. It's called Blood & Sand and I'm really enjoying it right now. It's a little like a slightly more down-to-earth Chelsea Girl, with the bedside feel and gently asserted breadth of Sea Change. And on the cover it looks like she's a ghost! It's cool.
