prose book, LAST OF THE MOCASSINS, and a new autobiographical introduction which

Plymell roared out of Kansas with tires blazing while the Beat scene was
still in training wheels. Weaned on jump blues, true grit and Dr. Gimmy Gommy’s
Goodies, Plymell redefined the fast track with blunt force, map zap and brute
strength forged of desperation and
Born on the high plains in Finney County, Kansas in 1935 in a
converted chicken coop during one of the blackest dust storms of the day, he
would spend his sprouting years kicking up even more sand. His father was a
cowboy born in the Indian Territory; his mother was of Plains Indian descent.
Life on the loose held more appeal than classrooms for young Charles, who
dropped out after ninth grade. He worked at various laboring jobs throughout the
western states, then racing the highway between Los Angeles and Kansas City
during his hipster years, stoked on hillbilly howls and race music-- R&B,
blues, and jazz.
Charles Plymell lived in San Francisco in the early 1960’s, sharing a
house with Allen Ginsberg and Neal Cassady. His writings from this period were
published in his first book APOCALYPSE ROSE, which appears complete in
BENZEDRINE HIGHWAY, along with his killer roadmaster autobio THE LAST OF THE
Plymell raised a lifelong ruckus with a wild bunch that included
friends Ginsberg, Cassady, William S. Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac-- and a cast
Charles Plymell eventually settled in upstate New York. He has
published, printed, and designed umpteen underground magazines and books with
his wife Pamela Beach. He put Ray Bremser and Herbert Huncke, whom he identified
with from the hipster 1950s, into print, and was influential in the underground
comix scene, establishing artists such as Robert Crumb and S. Clay Wilson, whom
he first published in Lawrence, Kansas. Plymell was the first printer of Robert
Crumb's Zap Comix.
Charles Plymell opposes the National Endowment for the Arts and has
criticized it in print, claiming it has become a politicized, unjust system
feeding on its own mediocrity and self-contradiction. His views were mentioned
in the New York Times in "Notes on People" and again in "Washington Talk". He
was subsequently blacklisted and has never received any funding from any
federal, state, or academic agency to pursue his

Parution chez CUINOLI Fantasy de La Colère des dieux aztèques, par Boris Darnaudet, version papier, donc ! Quant à la nouvelle version numérique plus longue, elle est toujours en Kindle/Amazon. Si ces parutions bénéficient d'une nouvelle couverture, normalement, une troisième nouvelle couverture dessinée par Elric Dufau est attendue pendant les fêtes ! Roman de 140 pages de fantasy historique aztèque, 12 euros en papier et 3,40 en numérique ! Selon la rumeur CUINOLI polar et Cuinoli Fantasy devraient accueillir des inédits de Darnaudet le Vieux, également ! Parmi les inédits du Vieux, pourraient enfin sortir : Codes bancaires, Le Minotaure de Venise, Le Möbius Paris Venise etc. Cela dépendra d'Ayala Warschawski, la directrice des Cuinoli ! Cuinoli publie également Gildas Girodeau
I’m pleased to announce I will be team-teaching my first Massive Open Online Course (or MOOC). This type of free online course provides an alternative means to deliver and experience educational offerings to anyone in the world with access to the Internet.
The course is titled General Semantics: An Approach to Effective Language Behavior, based on a Communication Studies course that Mary Lahman, Ph.D., has taught at Manchester University in Indiana for fifteen years. Greg Thompson, Ph.D. and visiting anthropology professor at BYU, rounds out our teaching team. So participants will benefit from three different perspectives about General Semantics.
Registration is now open for the six-week class that begins 13 January 2014. There is no fee for registration or materials – it’s completely free, offered through the Canvas Network . Here’s the description:
This course provides an introduction to general semantics—the study of how we transform our life experiences into language and thought. Students will learn how their language habits and behaviors, as well as how they think about and share experiences, are what make them uniquely human. In other words, students will discover the critical, but sometimes subtle distinctions between what happens in their lives and how they talk about what happens.
The course will include readings from a wide array of disciplines, such as communication studies, neuroscience, and cultural anthropology. It will also include visual and auditory demonstrations through music and social media, and collaborative interactions with fellow learners. These types of learning experiences allow students to not only learn about more effective language behaviors, but also practice those new behaviors in order to communicate more effectively and appropriately in interpersonal and organizational contexts.
To enroll, simply click the blue ENROLL button on this page.
The course content is organized into weekly modules. Participants can work at their own pace and sequence, with activities and exercises arranged to facilitate learning.
This is a great opportunity to try something new, both in terms of the subject matter and educational format. After five days of open registration it looks like we have participants signed up from four continents. Feel free to enroll and participate as much, or as little, as you wish. We’ll all learn something together, although those "somethings" may be quite different.
Attached is an information sheet about the course. Please consider sharing with your social media networks or with anyone who might be interested in learning something like General Semantics in an international virtual classroom.
