Let The Rumpus In

June 23, 2009

Another blog worth checking out is called The Rumpus and is run by Stephen Elliott. It discusses culture from a variety of angles, defining itself against “mass culture” and instead focusing on “good culture.” At the moment there is a great short video clip from GOOD that lists a number of internet porn statistics. Anyway.

Stephen Elliott is an author in San Francisco with six original books under his belt, including Jones Inn (Boneyard Press, 1998), Looking Forward To It: or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying About It and Love the American Electoral Process (Picador, 2004), Happy Baby (McSweeny’s & MacAdam/Cage, 2004), My Girlfriend Comes to the City and Beats Me Up (Cleis Press). Elliot is about to release his latest book, The Adderall Diaries: A Memoir of Moods, Masochism and Murder, (Graywolf Press, 2009).
