Aughts Moments on the

Buffalo List
Adam Fieled








Preface

The very rich cultural history of the Aughts years of the twenty-first century is one that was
seeded during the era itself, is now being consolidated, and will continue in this process of
consolidation for the rest of this century. It was, for me and my friends, in many ways a
magical time; a time when a confluence of influences, especially the newly pronounced
importance of the Internet and literature online, created a sense of brisk, perpetual motion
around American and Continental art, poetry, and culture. I was privileged to live, during
these years, in Center City Philadelphia, undoubtedly one of the cultural capitols of the
Aughts, and poured myself into my various endeavors with passionate abandon. One
constituent feature built into the Aughts by the Internet is a newfangled sense of everyday
rigor around the arts; that action could happen day by day, rather than month by month or
year by year. This circumstance heightened the sturm und drang of our lives.

The Buffalo Poetics List, based out of SUNY Buffalo but spiritually centered around
Philadelphia poetry, and with ancillary channels and outlets all over the world, was a meet-
and-greet spot where avant-garde poets and writers hawked their wares, argued, sought to
make clear their various socio-aesthetic positions, and wrangled to gain space for themselves
and their various preoccupations. I have chosen here several instances which I deem to be of
historical value. What they establish is substantial: the integral, fruitful connection between
Philadelphia, Chicago, and London in the Aughts; ferment around the kinds of kitchen-sink
dramas which biographers and cultural historians always find enticing; and the sense of
briskness and lived adventure which marked Aughts avant-gardism. As such, I hope you find
these tidbits as edifying as I do; as the consolidation of what weve created continues to
make clear just what an aesthetic advance this century might become.

I just found out, from Jessica Smith, that a rumor has been circulating
that I'm the one that was "blog-stalking" her. I say here,
unequivocally, for all time, that the person on her blog was NOT ME. I
DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO HIDE!!! To those of you who've been spreading
the rumour, DESIST. It's NOT TRUE. Go pin the tail on someone else, you
mystery loving, crime stopping "Sherlocks". I don't do things like
that, never have. Period.
Eat a peach,

The new ebook from Argotist Ebooks is Disturb the Universe: The Co=
llected Essays of Adam Fieled by Adam Fieled

Description:


In "Disturb the Universe: The Collected Essays of Adam Fieled", we see
a young poet wrestling with old problems: how to move forward and
conserve simultaneously, how to form coherent judgments regarding what
will endure and what will not, how to, as Eliot wrote in Four Quartets,
purify the dialect of the tribe. These essays are bold stabs in search
of new directions, which push the envelope past what post-modernism in
poetry has heretofore allowed. They may prove to be enduring benchmarks
of a period of transition and turmoil.
