Elan Mudrow

Dean Martin, the famous sage of the Rat Pack, had a song entitled “Welcome to My World”. I would like to copy and paste his introduction into my blog.  I can’t promise you a well-mixed cocktail or smooth pickup lines, but I can spit out a few lines of prose.

I consider it a kind of scatting, prose that is. It’s gibberish which initially doesn’t make sense, but somehow does by the time you’re done reading it. Dean never tried a scat, as far as I know. So, I’ve got him beat on one thing.  You make shit up, then you go back into the studio and record your track over and over until you think you’ve come up with something that someone other than you might like (or hate, because that works just as well).

I’m in grad school–English –Portland State University.  I don’t believe in keeping Portland weird. I believe in keeping everywhere weird.
