Wiseblood report: 8 Days and Virtue by FOK Andrew McNabb

On September 18, 2014, Divine Providence Press will publish, under one cover, both 8 Days and Virtue, Andrew McNabb’s book-length prose poem, or “mystical prayer.”  These two works are inextricably linked; as McNabb details in 8 Days, it was at the very moment he typed the period that would end Virtue that his odyssey emphatically began.

In 8 Days, he recounts the ecstatic mystical religious experiences that took place in his life over an eight day period in 2011. With literary attention, this career short-story writer, husband, and father of four details how he was swept up into a place “not quite here” and “not quite there,” a place in which he experienced both the ethereal and the terrifying, the awe-inspiring and the confounding.

Virtue is a paean, a poetic and prayerful work that seeks, also, to be instructive by way of a logical progression which culminates, ultimately, at that highest point on the spiritual mountain: union with Him in true love.  

Order it here.

    Every time Wiseblood announces a new book, take a shot.

    Every time Wiseblood announces a new music album, gake two shots.

    Every time Wiseblood introduces a new imprint, take three shots.

    This is what bothers me: there is difference between private and public life. Always has been and always will be. So if someone makes a sex tape for their own private enjoyment, it doesn’t give everybody with access to the web the right to watch it. So I feel bad for Miss Azalea and what she’s going through right now. HOWEVER … she _has_ been singing a song about being “in the fast lane from LA to Tokyo,” and also asking if I “wanna touch that” and “clutch that”, and even betting that I “wanna bite it”. She has a song called ” Pu$$y”, for Gawd’s sake! Can she really blame millions of guys with pubescent minds, no matter what their actual age, if they express an interest in seeing her perform a sex act on video? Why would she even make such a video without considering this possibility, nay – eventuality? Well, nobody said that growing older isn’t painful. And that’s all I have to say about Iggy Azalea. For now, anyway.

      Hot girl, hands off, don’t touch that
      Look at it I bet you wishing you could clutch that
      It’s just the way you like it, huh?
      You’re so good, he’s just wishing he could bite it, huh?

      “Look at it.” Imperative.

    • Wow. I guess I could have gone the rest of my life not even knowing this young girl even existed – and, yes, so can my daughters…
