Thank you for sharing info about this.

My mind immediately went back to the Beat Generation, wearing their black turtlenecks in smokey little coffeehouses, reciting avant garde poetry, while jazz played on quietly in the background. Not that I am old enough to have been there... And, I realize this is MUCH different.

Which scene would you prefer, last nights' or the Beat Scene?

Crikey one must be careful, a good job you do not judge on Blogit.

I used to watch Russell Simmons on HBO a few years back when

he presented poets - a lot of their work was rap lyrics and very rhythmical - also attended a championship slam in Seattle at their Bumbershoot Festival one year - I liked the improvisational feel even though it wasn't improvised on the spot. Seems more relatable to me than the droning ultra-cultural sonics of estoeric "literary" poets.

Hmmmmm.  I'm not sure whether I would like that or not.
