Our wayfaring friend Fred Sasaki presents this musical piece for the relishing.
I’ll let Fred describe it: “Pizza Man” by Pizza Man, recorded in Roma Norte, Mexico City, February 7, 2015, featuring Marvin Tate (vocals), Benjamín Anaya González (guitar), Joel Craig (guitar), Fred Sasaki (wood, xylophone, corkscrew, and windowpane). González welcomed Tate, Craig, and Sasaki to his home for pizza, wine, and good vibrations during their travels for MAKE Literary Productions Lit & Luz Festival in Mexico City, coinciding with Material Art Fair and Zona MACO.
If you spent the late-Clinton/early-Bush years checking your email at Hotmail, Hushmail, or keg-party.com, you’ve probably forgotten much of that old correspondence. Jesse Nathan does not have that luxury.
Nathan is the co-founder of the McSweeney’s Poetry Series. His work has appeared in jubilat, Volt, The Literary Review, The American Poetry Review, and elsewhere.
He lives in San Francisco and plans to eventually wrap up work on his PhD, at which point he will be a Doctor of Poetry. You knew him when.
Here, he gets a bit misty poring over an old inbox.
