You still doing good Rick? I remember you from that Salon group. Your son has grown so much!
What's happening re Arlt is one of our LT members translated the second half of The Seven Madmen, THe Flamethrowers, never before available in English. He did a great job as far as I'm concerned, and we're discussing the whole of it in a private group, but I got to thinking that there must be a lot of Arlt readers here (whatever a lot is) and I thought the more people it reaches the better. I don't remember, but I'm now wondering if you read Spanish? Am I right? The strategy is to use a discussion here and some close readings to fix any flaws remaining in the translation before trying to sell it. The translator is probably familiar to you--Iriley, a very humble guy, and a trufflehound when something interests him. I've written an introduction to his work, which I will post wherever we end up having the discussion.
You might of planned it right, Drumpf has me thinking of leaving this country for somewhere else almost everyday now.
I have no Spanish unfortunately. It sounds like a fairly necessary project maybe even a lucrative one. I'd be happy to read both though when the time comes.
The time is supposed to be now, or yesterday, March first was the opening of the discussion, but no one said anything--besides me and Iriley there are probably five or six others reading.
Yeah, Arjun's card is two years old now, I think. Currently he throws 8 pitches. He's too young for a curve or slider, so we started experimenting with cut fastballs, and changes, and he can get movement on everything relatively consistently. Last summer his wipeout pitch was the Greg Maddux change, which moves the opposite way, so is like a curve. He's skinny, catching up physically, so he's not the hardest thrower, but he had some great games last summer, one in which he struck out 6 in 2 innings, a stretch of 24 strikeouts in 14 innings. He was the only pitcher with moving changeups. He checked youtube for lessons in throwing a split finger and it breaks sharp, but a former pitcher for the Blue Jays minor league told me it's too stressful on the tendons and he shouldn't throw it.
But back to Arlt--the thread should be available to you shortly and my intro to FT is in there, and Iriley should have one done soon. Right now we're on Chapter one of Seven Madmen...or getting to chapter one.
