This is a great site. My entries:
(or: Bother, dig.)
Every bit another.
(or: Another, every bit.)
i don’t know if i can enter since i’ve already offered a book, so maybe consider this not as an entry but an observation: last night while perusing the big other, the phrase came to mind: a spectral analysis of art & culture.
although there are more references to lit than anything else, which i imagine is due to the particular literary spray of the double-slit experiment of contributors. so maybe the above would be more accurate with lit or letters in there, or glyphs, that’s such a wonderful word. glyph. i want to glyph you. what a lovely glyph you’re wearing. sorry i’m late, my glyph wouldn’t get started. glyph is my favorite season. did you watch the glyphs last night on tv? he’s such a glyph, i can’t stand him. do you believe in glyph? everyone is searching for that one special glyph in their life. someday i hope to become a glyph. glyph is my life dream.

Big Other: Our Otherness Makes Us the Same
Ignite your own light within you..
Be a master in your own world.
is this thing on?
what does it do?
I’ll donate to the prize pool a copy of WTMA and a stupendous surprise mystery book.
(I’ll need reminding, though, that I offered this. I wonder what the mystery book will be. It will not be an IKEA catalog, even though I have two. I promise it will also not be a desk copy of a freshman English reader, even though I have many.)
The stupendous surprise mystery book will be something good.
not just dodgeball targets anymore
for people who don’t watch idol
all of this can be yours

About everything you’re too dumb to think of
It just occurred to me that my entry might sound like I’m calling the creators of Big Other “dumb,” when really the slogan is aimed at calling everyone who visits your blog, “dumb”…wait, somehow that doesn’t sound any better…just know it’s a form a flattery in some warped and twisted way.
I think your “About” section says it all: “Big Other — Trespassings, Transgressions, and Whatever, Nevermind”
