speak with conviction.

I stole this video from my best friend Emily’s website, which she’s doing as a project for her class but is still kind of a cute site. You should check it out here if you want.

It’s a great clip of one of Taylor Mali‘s Def Poetry Jam appearance.

And here’s another one, for good measure.

In another “website of a person I know” plug, The Hour Badly Spent is a very good read and Jelani, the man holding it down at THBS gave us a shout out in his post This Is Why You Smell Fat. Good stuff over there.

Jelani, along with many other fine poets, will be reading at Auntie MaesFine Poetry Night. I’d be there for sure…except that I’ll be watching Camera Obscura in St. Louis.

This is your brain on Hogs.
