My edit of Steve Aylett’s LINT THE MOVIE can now be seen in its entirety HERE.

Starring Alan Moore, Stewart Lee, Josie Long, Steve Aylett, Robin Ince, Jeff Vandermeer, D Harlan Wilson, Andrew O’Neill, Vessel (Mister Solo/David Devant), Bill Ectric, Mitzi Szereto, Spencer Pate, Mo Ali and others, LINT THE MOVIE documents the life and work of cult SF author and philosopher Jeff Lint, creator of some of the strangest and most inconvenient works of the 20th century.

Featuring clips from Lint’s books, cartoons, music, comics and films, the movie follows the writer’s life from the days of vintage pulp, psychedelia, dangerous theater, and his disastrous scripts for Star Trek and Patton. Commentary by those who knew and read him create a compelling portrait of the creator of Clowns and Insects, Jelly Result, The Stupid Conversation, the Caterer comic, and Catty and the Major, the scariest kids’ cartoon ever aired. Based on Steve Aylett’s books ‘LINT’ and ‘And Your Point Is?’

Poetic Justice: Madison Cawein and T.S. Eliot

Spencer Cawein Pate stands beside a bust of his distant relative, Madison Julius Cawein in Louisville, Kentucky

Spencer Cawein Pate says, “For those readers who are not related to poets, rest assured that it is a unique and satisfying experience to learn that T.S. Eliot plagiarized from one of your distant relatives.  In my case, the relative was Madison Julius Cawein (pronounced “CAW-wine”), a prolific Kentucky poet who was acclaimed and popular in his day (b. March 23, 1865, d. December 8, 1914) but is now all but forgotten.”
