It's interesting to see Shane Lester, from W+K Tokyo Lab, endorsing Sean Talley on his blog:

"October 29, 2006

Scarcity

I don’t find that many people in the world are very similar to me. But chances are that Sean Talley and I are very similar, though we haven’t talked much. Sean found me through my podcast, and then there was the realization that we had met before; he was once a roommate of one of my best friends and favorite human life forms, Ricky Rivas, during their San Francisco Art Institute days. Anyhow this is perhaps of no interest to anyone, but what is of interest is Sean’s beautiful new blog, and gentle, lush, and lively new podcast, the inaugural episode of which has just been released. Oh yes, and furthermore you should listen to it. Thanks."

If you go to Sean Talley's blog you'll see that he's made an entry which very much highlights exactly the contrast I'm making between the textual and the textural. He's got a "visual poem" there by Florentin Smarandache which is just the shape of a poem, drawn in lines of varying lengths. It's just the texture of a text, in other words. Now, no doubt Richard Lloyd Parry-type textually-oriented people would see that as the voiding of content, a process of emptying out. People who'd be likely to see it as a making-visible of a new and very interesting textural content are also, I'd suggest, people who will thrive in a place like Tokyo.

Will you ever write / are you writing / have you written a novel? Would love to read it.
