Poetry Slam and Jam
Sparks! Out Loud Alive with Poet Bob Holman

6 — 9 pm
Bloch Building and Atkins Auditorium

Bob Holman, founder of Bowery Poetry Club in New York City, joins Glenn North, poet-in residence at the American Jazz Museum, and a host of Kansas City writers for a dynamic evening of spoken-word poetry inspired by works in the featured exhibition.

I was commissioned to be one of the "host of Kansas City writers" and will be doing a brand new work inspired by one of the paintings in this exhibition. It is a surprise so see if you can guess which one they assigned me. This is very exciting and I would love to see you all there. And bring your friends because it is free.

Last month Melissa and I were a part of the greatest music video extravaganza on the face of the earth. Or at least the greatest music video ever shot at the Hy-vee in Independence, MO; Buckets of Babes. Look close and you will see that both my wife and I are indeed babes. This song was written and preformed by my two bestest friends Nick and Dane. They recorded it in their house over the span of 3 months. The gang vocals at the end were captured after one Monday Night Dinner in their attic, and feature me among others singing in an angry falsetto. They named their band loversofthewomen because they are very much ladies men of the first order. Enjoy. Email it to your friends and maybe it will be the next viral video sensation.

If you do the facebook watch it here. Also check out the sweet pics of me on there. I make a pretty dang good looking woman.

So here's the deal. My cousin is a strong woman and she goes by the name of Mama Lou. She is an amazing street performer and has traveled the world doing her act. Currently she is in a YouTube Phonebook Ripping contest and she needs your help to win 10,000. Watch her video and vote for it and send it to your friends. She is currently in third place and the voting goes until the end of June so make it happen now.

I posted another one of her videos here. Here and here are some other write-ups about my cool cousins.
