A Reminder: Please Support PIXELS

First off, I’d like to thank the three of you who have contributed to the PIXELS‘ hosting fund this year, so far.

In the past few years, I have asked for help once a year to defray the costs of hosting the website and the monthly Amazon S3 Cloud storage fees.

This year I thought I might offer a signed poster for a donation of $50 or more as an incentive and a thank you. Interestingly, this year is the worst response I’ve ever gotten.

PIXELS has been a labor of love and an out-of-pocket endeavor from day one in late November of 2009. There have been periods where hosting cost me as much as $200 a month (pre-Amazon storage costs), back when PIXELS was receiving two hundred images a day and I was putting in forty hours a week creating content, i.e., the daily pic, the “second look” feature, the weekly black-and-white gallery etc.

Things are calmer now.

If PIXELS adds to your life in some small way, please consider making a contribution. The offer of a signed archival print stands.

Thank you.

{sunday} Mark Daniels ~ Slow Productivity

our general banality by fatima ife.

was sex and more of it. sex and talk of it. sex and sexuality and sexism. until some among us began to differentiate it. prefix and suffix it. label it a matter of preference, genetic reconnaissance at birth. and it was it and it was not it. until some among us began to psalm. and what about doing it. and when would we do it to each other again. and it was gratuitous. the blue and white lament of it. until it moved us into ecological proximity. what was near and how loud. the flesh budding, ripening. it had always been a matter of proximity. the what it is was close to us. lewd and it was common. consumptive and it was money. extractive and it was public.


to whet the thing a finger strums a seam of glass


then spirit set its feels on us

we were tending
we were swirling

and we were sensing when it hit us

a porous limb        a glowing portal

sam rivers on repeat


the romanticism of aromanticism inside a poem
the orifice of pitch        a clutch of birds


then our dreams became tumescent
such holiness was flame


and it was fuchsia fuchsia all over the place

Happy Sunday.

Alan Means is phenomenal. You can just start with Healter Skelter and let YouTube keep playing his videos as you sip your morning coffee or tea. Enjoy!
