Since there were a bunch of Canadians present at the slam this evening, Eirik did his "front page you tube" poem, "Why I Got Fired From Apple Computer." But he'd had a whisky and coke and transposed things done on a TV versus a playstation. I laughed.
Danny did "Koala Gnomes" and I always like his pieces because he's a "wait for it, wait for it..." poet. If you see him perform or watch his videos, the meaning becomes very clear.
On October 30th a handful of AMAZING poets are coming to the Austin Slam, and anyone with their wits about them should be at this show. I have to host a tailgate party with my after school program before a football game, but you'd better believe that my tail will be out of there and at the Independent by 8:30, (because I operate on poet central mountain time).
Driving home down South Congress - I can't WAIT to get a camera that can take pictures at night so I can snap a shot of the capital standing outside of Guero's with the fairy lights tree in the frame. For now, an iphone through the front windshield at a red light will have to suffice as a vantage point for shooting the Austin capital building. I love living here.
