Wow! LA poet stunning!
« on: July 14, 2009, 02:49:35 PM »
I just got to see Tik Tok Faratalouty perform in LA. This guy is LEGIT!

One of the very, very few poets that makes you really, REALLY think about his content. Presentation/timing is perfect. This guy is a real star. I cannot WAIT to see him perform again. Sorry if I'm overexcited, but I haven't been "into" a poet like this for quite some time.

Check it out:

I don't even know what you mean by that. I'm not trying to market anything. I just like the dude's poetry (he's a great poet--go see him for yourself). I guess you were just dead set on being a dick when you logged onto the board today.

OK.  First off, you come on to the forum, and insult, you know, pretty much everybody on here by saying:

"One of the very, very few poets that makes you really, REALLY think about his content."

I know a lot of poets.  I don't know there is poet that I've not thought about their content.  Care to name some poets you don't think craft their verse to the point where you don't think about their content?

Second,

This guy is a real star.

If stardom is what you're looking to out of poetry, I might suggest you're into poetry for the wrong reasons.  It's the words that matter.  The person is secondary.

Third,

Your post reads like the bad male enhancement ads that clutter everyone's in-boxes. 

Fourth,

The fact that you've never cared to sign up to the Poetry Slam listserv before today and rather than an introduction to YOURSELF we get: "HEY! CHECK OUT THIS GUY! NO, DON'T LOOK AT ME!  THIS GUY!"

Fifth,

I guess you were just dead set on being a dick when you logged onto the board today.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

"You say that like it's a bad thing." Some poets are direct, some are somewhat cryptic. This one happens to be very, very deep. Not necessarily a good or bad point. It's just his style. Stop being so sensitive.

Sorry! A thousand apologies. I just happened to "get into" the scene very recently. Tik Tok was a big part of that. So, I wanted to share my enthusiasm. I'll post my CV and bio for your perusal directly.

Not at all! You're infallible. I mean it. Don't even respond to this line. I mean it with every ounce of my soul. I want to be on you.

Hmmm.  This seems like you're back-tracking.  First, most of the other poets suck because they don't make you think, now being "very, very deep" is neither good nor bad.

WHICH IS IT SENATOR!?!?!

I am as constant as the Northern Star...  and other bits of Shakespeare I've cleaved from movies.

I'll post my CV and bio for your perusal directly.

And remember, blue or black ink only, and please file it in triplicate.

You're infallible. I mean it. Don't even respond to this line. I mean it with every ounce of my soul. I want to be on you.

And now you're disrepecting my Pope.  Your anti-Catholic bias offends me.

I never, ever said that "other poets suck because.....". You just made that up for some sweet-ass reason.

Anyways, I'll get that CV to you asap.

I can hardly hear anything on this video.  I think it's about a penis.

Why do we let Klute create accounts just so he can argue with himself? ;)

I've actually just now seen the link. 

I don't think I was sarcastic enough.

I think I got more content out of the sound of mic hitting floor than any single syllable uttered before it.

Ummm... how about no.

Chris Rock and Ralphie May called and want him to stop dropping the mic.

/Like the idea of a 30-second speed slam. Though we don't offer "entires." We offer poems. It is a poetry slam after all.
