The Sunday Leader wants to run another Kottu insert this, wait for it… Sunday. I have to lay it out and submit tomorrow, so I’m mentioning the stuff I’m considering here. People ask what the selection process is and, in the end, it’s basically me. Be that as it may, I try to be judicious. The criteria is basically stuff that seems popular or otherwise gets my attention. So this is what’s up for print.
I’m selecting the photos from this search. It looks for anything with the word ‘Lanka’ under a Creative Commons License, uploaded within the last month. So far what’s caught my eye is this panorama of St. Clair’s Falls, this photo of a tourist in Habarana, this studio looking shot of cinnamon sticks, this photo of a fisherman, this jumping water, this dude in a boat, this burning flame. I also like the stuff this photo blogger U4j10 has been doing, may ask him. Tell me if you have any more suggestions. They just have to be CC licensed or with available permission from the photographer.
There’s a fair amount of discussion about how Sarath Fonseka is being treated, from killromeoproject and Halik among others. That might do for a page, with the comments and discussion. The Puppeteer ran last time, but I think here description of a Hooker On A Bus is really excellent. What Lesbians Do In Bed is an interesting and attention-getting poem. Gypsy’s Grace is a piece of short fiction that seems to be climbing. The 1/10th is an interesting poem about junkies by St. Fallen. Cerno’s Elephant Watching Makes Me Feel Dirty is a bit old but I think worth reproducing. BailaMan has been doing consistently good stuff, would like to select a piece from him.
That’s about all I can think of for now, but please suggest stuff. It’s getting sent off tomorrow, so speak now or hold your peace.
