Clarence Brimley/Spoken Word

An artist friend, Karen Gunderson, introduced me to Clarence Brimley, a 35-year-old spoken-word poet from NYC. Clarence sent along a few of his poems, but without the voice. I wondered how they would sound/feel when he speaks them, when they’re heard. Clarence was glad to oblige, and sent along a few smart phone videos that appear here, accompanied by the written word. Hope you enjoy − another one of millions of emerging poets…

Jim Palombo/Politics

My first wish would be that somehow, perhaps through a magical sense of legitimate political integrity and honest regard for our American experiment, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and John Kasich could find a way to all hold tri-presidential powers, leading our country’s way into a future filled with the theoretical and practical presence our history deserves.

Casual Observer/Mark Levy

A fellow named Jerry Hill got the ball rolling on middle names. He thought Middle Name Pride Day would be a good time for us to call each other by our middle names. The only people whose middle name I know are dead and it seems disrespectful to refer to the deceased by his or her middle name.

Daniel Harris/Poetry

Micro aggressions rise blank to ascension: ur-cut,

savage, to omit the dupe—(re)emerges to femme

a skin of guts an oblique attraction. Earl Shoepeg

sucks Eddy’s soul. Earl’s an Eddy rumpologist (‘st):

burned as impurity, agent of rapture in alchemy’s

concrete trellis: McEddy coins Earl.

COMIX & Stuff

Plenty of art these days doesn’t fit into any categorized genre. We call this section “Comix & Stuff,” but it could just as well be titled “You’ve never seen this before Art,” or maybe just plain “Stuff,”  or “WTF?” Juxtapoz does a great job of presenting contemporary West Coast/LA animé-goth-weird-fantasy work, just as La Luz de Jesus gallery has done for as many years. We love that stuff, but we don’t see much of it coming our way, so if you’ve got a portfolio, or a single panel suitable for “COMiX & Stuff,” sent it along. For now, email to,  and we’ll see how it goes.  Meanwhile, if you have a show of your own at some gallery somewhere, and you want people to know about it, feel free to place an announcement in Ragazine.CC‘s EVENTS Calendar (indexed above).   We like strange…  Let us know if you have comments or questions.                                                                 Gabriel Navar: Trending Now Fun Craze by Allen Forrest            by Gabriel Navar,     Walter Gurbo,            ...

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
