The Myrtle Street Review has been rather overtaken of lately by pressing issues. Otherwise known as Life.
This is not the end, but we need to attend to the aforementioned stuff and do this other project.
If you see things that strike you as worthy of our attention, or if you wan to send poetry or other observations for publication, don't be shy! The email link is right there underneath the video image.

What do you do if you are an urban person without a beach or a pool? Drive or take public transport to the nearest beach or pool? Or take a bunch of dumpsters and build yourself a pool? These awesome people in Brooklyn did just that!
It's part of a much bigger, fascinating project: Macrosea have plans to convert entire abandoned strip malls and other urban spaces to awesome centers of culture, business and civic activity, replete with dumpster pools.
If anyone wants to start a project in West Oakland, the Myrtle Street Review is in. We're SO in.
