I'm Shawn (a.k.a., "Muttman1967"). I've been a journalist for about 20 years. I'm in grad school, working on my dissertation on Disney/Pixar animation. I also run Mutt Media LLC, a humble production/distribution company. One of Mutt Media's projects is to spread the message about Ivan O'Uris, a journalist and poet from the island of Luscia who lives in the United States. He supplements his meager writing income by working at the Kansas City Zoo, where he feeds raw yak meat to the den of wild used car salesmen. It gets scary sometimes; a Crysler representative once escaped from the den and tried to shove his business card in Ivan's ear.
Ivan's poetry is available online. The best place to find it is at muttmediallc.com, where it's part of the blog "The Paperlessly Wallpapered I.O'U. Papers." It's at a few other places, too, including Funny or Die and on MySpace on Mutt Media's official MySpace page (www.myspace.com/muttmedia), but muttmediallc.com has the best graphics. So check it out and enjoy.
If you've got something you want me to read (whether it's original or someone else's work), please let me know. It might take me a while, but I'll try to give it a look.
