Introduction Anthony Cristofani is a poet, songwriter, novelist, and scholar, currently a Phd student in comparative literature at the University of California, Riverside. The mission of this blog is the same as Toulouse Latrec's penniless sitar player in "Moulin Rouge": I only speak the truth, I only speak the truth, I only speak the truth. Of course, I can't presume privileged access or even the possibility of philosophical Truth. I simply mean that here honest expression of my positions will come before tact, ego, business considerations, flattery, preservation of feelings, safety or any other motive whatsoever. I expect the same from my readers! Let's go.
