Once in awhile I have to become an ambassador for spoken word, whether or not it's calling out someone calling participants in the Women of the World Poetry Slam "Fake Feminists" or someone saying that watching videos on youtube of people popping zits was preferable to watching spoken word videos.
The latter happened last night, I asked the person what videos he was watching. He replied bad ones, but asked if I could recommend good ones. I mean, he could have been watching some bad spoken word on youtube, it's certainly out there. But, I had to see what I can do to try and change his outlook.
I sent him links to two. Jamilla Woods' "Pigeon Man."
And Jack McCarthy's "Careful What You Ask For."
Got a replay this morning that these examples were "much better."
I still wonder what he was watching.
