So, today I saw this on my publisher's website: Please... Let me not wake up yet! Side notes: 1. Evident surprised expression despite staged photo. Terrible. 2. I carry my groceries in the bags under my eyes, yep. 3. RIP glorious beard; all hail the ol' goatee. 4. Dirty floor - I'm writing, I'm excused. … Continue reading #1?!
(This post is about a mention of my book on Greek TV. My apologies, English reader; I should figure out a separate language setup for my site at some point.) Τηλεοπτική αναφορά στον Γιγαντοκυνηγό έγινε στην εκπομπή ΣΤΑΣΗ ΕΡΤ. Καλεσμένος στην εκπομπή ήταν ο συγγραφέας και ποιητής Γιάννης Καλπούζος, για να μιλήσει για το βιβλίο του Κάποιοι δεν ξεχνούν … Continue reading Γιγαντοκυνηγός στην ΣΤΑΣΗ ΕΡΤ

Got some particularly nice news today. But can't say what they are until the weekend! Have a picture instead, accurately expressing my emotions:
Friend randomly sketched my face on a note. I'm vain enough to post it. Real version for comparison purposes. Disapproving expression due to caricature's preternaturally big ears. What the fuck, Ben - I'm not an elephant. In other who-cares 'news'. Poem to follow later tonight. But in Greek. Currently on minor edits.
? ? ? What's going on?! Something's cooking in the Melicertian corner of the world... What is this?! Is it shaped like... a book cover?! (On which Dimitris shamelessly pasted question marks to create mystery?!) Who is that short, angry guy with the net?! And who, or what, is he hunting?! And why?! Wait... Is … Continue reading ???
Ukrainian artist and friend of mine Oleksandr Ivanchenko recently (and most kindly) asked me to participate in one of his photography projects about Londoners in their habitual spaces. In my case, it had to be the desk. And books, I guess, given that my socks are of no particular interest and I possess no objects other … Continue reading Writershoot
