This Tuesday and more work

Ok, so this Tuesday should be really hot. Gina Blaurock will be the vendor for the week and she has really nice pieces of jewelery she makes herself. Not the hokey " I think I'll get some glue and beads and throw some shit together"type thing.
No. She has the " Women eat this shit up like crack mixed with a shoe sale-yes my stuff has been featured in some of the more popular art galleries here in Ohio" type thing.
grrr baby. very grr.

Then there is the feature. Kim Brazwell. New nickname- Kim BLASTwell. As in Blast the mic. Blast a poem. Blast that ass if you are the offending party. Not only is she a kickass poet and highly intelligent and witty writer, she is one of the few people on this scene I can and always will love and consider to be a true blue friend. Not the one that tells you what you want to hear but the one that tells you what you need to hear.
In this day of passive aggressive wimps and straight up punks, wussies, and oatmeal people, she is a breath of fresh air.

If you are reading this before this Tuesdays set, come out and have fun with one of the most original voices in poetry now.

If you are reading this after Tuesday and you made it out?
I told you so. Now I dare you to stop smiling while thinking of something she said. Try.

If you are reading this after Tuesday and you DID NOT come out for some odd reason? Stick your leg out in front of you as far as you can. Now with all your might, swing it backward and kick yourself in the ass. You missed a great show. I'm predicting that like Namath promised the superbowl.
