Hmm... Spoken Words. I really think that this a pretty cool form of presenting one's poetry. Poetry itself is very powerful in a sense. I really enjoy poetry. I have yet to go to one of these performances. Poetry is like a song, it expresses one's sorrows or emotions that surrounds one. It is a powerful thing.


indeed, poetry is like song. it's awesome to see it expressed with people's voices and actions on stage. really brings poetry reading and performance to a whole new level.

3rd Eye Collective... from Sacramento, CA? Not that I know people there personally, it's more of a friend of a friend association since I hail from the East Coast. I met a couple of folks and slam poets when I was in college. Some of the folks from Cali told me about it. Though they do more than just spoken word i heard.

Ey, that was pretty interesting and although some of those artists gave me a hard time at understanding what they were saying(badass pronunciation?) I thought some of those were quite funny, entertaining and pretty much reflected what is approximately going through each people's head. Quite a decent alternative of bringing your emotions and thoughts to the public not to mention that it's also a good way to "revive" poetry in a sense.

Thanks for introducing this to me/us.

no problemo =] Yeah... it's kind of hard sometimes to hear what they're saying when they go fast. But thanks for taking the time to listen and take a gander at some of the videos there.

I just realized some of those links are outdated now/removed now... but most of them are still alive. I'll remove the ones that aren't active anymore.

EDIT: Updated the Dead Links. =]

Nope, not friends with any specific person. It's been a few years already. I was just told about the group. ANd sweet! Have you ever tried performing it anywhere? If you haven't, you should definitely do it!

I've herd of Spoken Word but never took the chance to hear it. I love it! Some of the poets are so real. I watched most of them, my favorite so far was Yellow Rage, Sarah Jones , and Julian Curry.

I love this thread though. I'm glad someone took the time to create this and introduce people to a different style of art instead of something retarded like having your male parts bitten off.

I tried this for the first time at a Poetry Slam my school hosted just this week. It's really amazing, at least for me. I'd been looking to participate in an activity in which I could have the privacy and security of writing, but the right amount of attention when I went up to perform in front of some interested people..I think the crowd contained, maybe, 20 people at most, and that was perfect for me. Too little and I feel like not enough people are listening. Too many, and I feel I'm bout to pass out. X_x I was still nervous, and the piece I was reading aloud was so emotional that I just nearly avoided crying, but it's all a part of the experience - especially if the feeling you're trying to display is that of sadness and, in my case, rejuvenation. Even though I had to stop for a second to regain composure, I received some compliments from people telling me they could sense what it meant to me and that in itself meant a lot to me as well.

Anyway, I'd recommend it to any person who's looking to show who they are to the world, one small group at a time. : ) It's a great form of self expression.
