I did a live performance of a story written for the Hugo House in Seattle which included some server technology and text-messaging. It’s possible it’ll go up on their site at some point. For fun, let’s try a link to a search on ‘Parzybok’.

Essays, etc:

I have a very short essay and photographs on Brazilian Graffiti in Superficial Flesh. There’s also an interview with me in the same issue.

There are a few poems out there in the wild, too, though I haven’t written poetry actively since pretty much the start of Gumball Poetry in 1999.
