John, you give performed poetry hope. I loved this. Too much of it here in the Cities is cookie-cutter slam crap that makes me not want to go hear it. If more people read in your easy style with your engaging content...well, let's just say the venues would be filled with more than just other performers waiting their turn.
I wanted to make the release but hitchhiking didn't work.
Question: Would you be willing to let my website use this vid as a stimulus?
See what I mean by checking it out:
Hey John are those your foundation garments?
Micheal, thank you. Yes, go ahead, use it as a stimilus.
Kevin, yes, those are my underwears.
Any more footage of you reading from that night...posted on You Tube maybe?
Farts smell like potato salad.
Beautiful. Very beautiful.
How can we get ahold of your new zines?!
Thank you for asking, PQ. I'm working on an online store.
John, your vid has been uploaded as my lit site's new stimulus. Thanks!
Our cadre of writers will be able to access it for two weeks in order to come up with something creative.
Keep tabs on it here:
for one thing, john,
why didnt you tell me about this new "stimulus" deal.
and secondly, "roomie,"
why didnt you tell me how much
i inspired this poem??
perhaps i could provide an epigraph.
or perhaps not.
checked out northography.com.
very very cool.
indicative of the (poetry) world's sleek new wave/age, of which you are destined to be an integral part of.
am i out of touch with technology
or is technology out of touch with "me?"
brautigan killed himself
you are dead
The angorki's lemond poster is a spurious bastard and unapologetic faker. angorki did not make that post.
I know who you are. Watch your back.
One of your greatest appeals, John, is in combining tender adult human sympathies with the inner hardened greed-driven child.
It is mesmerizing every time. You paint a perfectly round picture, not too far skewed in any particular direction - there is destruction and redemption living in the undulations of your voice.
