My so called life as an artist.

BAGHDAD, Nov. 21 -- Insurgents deploying rocket-launcher-equipped donkey carts attacked symbolically important and well-fortified buildings in Baghdad Friday...

Troops returned fire, apparently injuring a donkey at the Sheraton. At least one human perpetrator may have been captured.

We had a great Slam this past Wednesday. The show went pretty well and the tie in with Def Poetry Jam out in Boston was sucessful. 94.5 was there giving stuff away and the slammers got some tickets to opening night.

Tony Brown was the feature. He did a great 20 minute set. Jive Poetic won the slam and Christopher Johnston qualified. His weekly column in GotPoetry.com is out. It's really a cool one this week (not that they're not always cool) on what it's like going through a feature. I recommend checking it out.

Reading it, I realised why I have taken a break from featuring and basically seriously working on poetry. It became work.

Too bad I already have a day job and a part time one running the slam.
