I always said that Lana releasing a book is my ultimate fan wish, I'm so happy! Her mind is always so powerful, I'm so excited to read what she wants to share with us.

I don't get how someone that claims to be a stan can call this a "pointless shit". I mean, music IS poetry, wtf?

I would of course be super happy with anything but I think I would be happier if it was prose poems rather rhyming ones. Which I think it is? She said if I didn't misunderstood "short stories that sometimes end in a rhyme" or something. I write a bunch of poetry, sorry for self-promo, nothing spectacular, but I know the process, and I think it would be sooooo much easier for detractors to bash her head in if it was rhyming poems, it could SO easily sound artsy fartsy or conceited. 

 

I would love this kind of poem structure, kind of like a song, but also not really, with lots of plays on sonorities but not necessarily rhyming. This one is by Patti Smith, already mentioned how Venice Bitch reminds me a lot of Woolgathering in the NFR thread but 

 

Spoiler

 

Or this one by Bianca Casady from CocoRosie, my fav poet of all time to the point I got her name tattooed on my thigh, I would love this kind of thing but with Lana themes

 

Spoiler

 

Or this one by me. You get the point poems in prose but with rhythm. But most importantly I want the book to be well designed not just three word pages stappled together and wrote in comic sans 

 

Spoiler

 

Although honestly her poems are probably gonna look like this

I don't think so. She is a great writer and knows how to use the words. I'm sure it will be something really special and deep.

i cant wait to see those dreams that were once dashed into a million stars become real for her (-: so proud

 

i've always loved poetry, especially writing it, and i can't wait to add this to my lana AND poetry collection. i imagine the book will be in beautiful hues of lavender and purples

Well...... Sorry.... I thought my joke was obvious, I'm a hardcore fan of Lana's writing otherwise I would not be here and I obviously will be there the second it gets released with 79094948948 posts with variations of "yas queen slay me"

She didn't say it was going to be rhyming poetry - in fact she said the opposite: drscribing it as "free verse."

Yes her writing is amazing! And you should really try listening to her music, I think you'll like it - especially since you (if i'm not mistaken) like Ultraviolence so much !

def reminds me of jim morrison publishing his own poetry

 

buttt the downside to that (and i know lana is a fan of the doors or at least jim) is that jim published it personally and then gave copies to his friends only so virtually no one fan-wise has his poetry unless given it by someone who knew him or luckily found a copy at an old bookstore

 

not sure if the publicly published books have any of the same poems

 

but hopefully lana doesnt pull this scheme

I don't think so. She is a great writer and knows how to use the words. I'm sure it will be something really special and deep.

her writing quality has really decreased over the years, she believes that putting a swear word within a song makes it dramatic and engages the listener like it should be used correctly not just to seem out of place like in Venice bitch,heroin and cherry although I'm sure the poems will be good I'm not expecting anything outstanding maybe during born to die or uv but now nope.

It's more like Leonard Cohen's poetry books, which were always readily available to fans and friends (and fans are friends so to say)

but it is now much easier access for fans to know about something like this. And it now keeps it in house, though some could be delegated to book stores if she chose.

 

Chances are it would be perfect in bundles/in tandem with the new album (even if copies are sold early on, much like digital downloads in bundles,

but when the fan actually will take possession of the book is the question.

 

also, one would assume it could be sold worldwide at the same time, as it is not owned by anyone but her, so there would be no restrictions.

 

Question will be- what is the anticipated run, and if it is made to order, then there will be a delay in shipping.

She is not going to have many thousands printed in advance.

 

 

a funny thought flashed through my mind- for those that watch Better Call Saul -

imagine if she kept copies in her car and distributed them like Jimmy/Saul distributed his trackfree  phones.

:lmao: 


Lana is our modern day Edith Piaf. Totally unique. a mixture of Brian WIlson Roy Orbison, Leonard Cohen, Gram Parsons, Elton & Bernie. Born to Die/Paradise is comparable to Elton's Captain Fantastic. All the records need to be listened whole. Waiting for a box set vinyl of all 400 songs not on any lp
