Maybe there should be like a spoken word fork of Audacity?

But I want to emphasize that I do truly appreciate all the hard work put in for free in creating Audacity, and am thankful that I have this tool! Especially since I can't code myself. I understand that this is not easy to make, and I'm not demanding anything here. Just some thoughts on how it could be even better for my use case. :)

"Stopping a Garden Hose with Your Thumb" by The Narcissist Cookbook

I kissed that person I've been talking to
You know
The one I've been mildly crushing on
On and off
For half a decade
And it felt strange
Not the kiss
The kiss was great
I mean, it felt strange to know that it was okay
That I didn't need to choose between this thing we have
And what this other thing could be
I could just relax and take things easy
As much as I am ever capable of either of those things, anyway
And drift wherever this strange new breeze might take me
You know me
I feel, at any given time, tugged in all directions at once
That is, if anything can be thus described, my defining quality
But I spent years pathologising that very thing
Listening with rapt attention when the world told me I was disgusting
Like a child listening to a bedtime story
And you know I don't think I even really mean that metaphorically
We really do make a point of teaching kids that there is precisely one person to be
One way to live
And monogamous
Anything else is in some way less
And so I learned, as a lot of people like me did, that it was better to hide and lie and pretend
Than to express ourselves honestly
This approach was actively encouraged, for fucks sake
As if those habits ever once produced a single happy or healthy individual in the history of our species
It's like trying to shut off a garden hose by clamping your thumb over the end
It seems to work for about half a second
And then what had been a steady stream becomes a dozen water-jets shooting everywhere
You can't control it
And you get super fucking wet
And that metaphor got away from me a bit
What I'm trying to say is
By not accepting who I am and what I want
By crushing and condensing my identity til it explodes all over everybody's everything
I hurt people
And then I kept doing it
Over and over again
Until I learned that raging against the parts of me I find hard to love
Doesn't actually erase them
It doesn't actually fix anything
It just makes me ill
And unfulfilled
And you know what's truly terrible
Is that some people go their whole lives thinking that's an okay way to feel
They wake up every morning and voluntarily erase themselves
Dream by dream and wish by wish
Until they're barely even people anymore
They're just piles of bone and hair and flesh
Red meat going bad
And I dunno
Maybe it's just me man
But that sounds worse than any awkward, honest conversation
I have ever had

I record everything I write. So for mastodon folks that couldn't make it out last night? As good as being there! #SpokenWord #poetry #jacksonville #florida

Make JAX Weird. A sticker you see around town. A call to action. Other places are weird. With their "Keep Austin Weird" merchandise. But they say we have work to do. 

Now... "Zaat" was a catfish monster. Of sorts. A large decorated wheel detailed his revenge plans. It was a very organized movie monster. Scrapbooking for vengeance. The plan was mad science. And it worked. 

"Blood Rage" had a kid gone bad. Unsupervised children became Drive-In Movie ax murderers back then. A useful plot device. Better than my 80s kid reality. When left alone I just ate Cookie Crisp cereal. Watched that Mr. T cartoon. Slasher movies need more. You sell the sizzle. "Blood Rage" tossed a piece of pumpkin pie and made "That is NOT cranberry sauce" a catchphrase. 

The Zaat screenplay writer would later be on Ancient Aliens. Where a national audience heard talk of a Mysterious Orb. Would later write a sci-fi novel after dreaming the first chapter. His sci-fi dreams came true. 

After a "Blood Rage" screening I sat across from the Producer's lawyer. We spoke of Yngwie Malmsteen. All sweep arpeggios and swagger. There was a "Blood Rage Girl" there. We spoke of St. Louis desserts. A Gooey Butter cake born of necessity. Or created by accident. 

We Make JAX Weird with every breath we take. There are more burlesque shows in condemned buildings than yacht clubs. And we are blessed.

#NeilHilborn went viral with 'OCD' 10 years ago. It was the first time I heard #SpokenWordPoetry and it changed my life.

I went on to help start the #SpokenWord #PoetryCommunity in my city. A lot of my role is in learning fast and mentoring, and I've seen many of our #poets go from clueless to being excellent writers/performers.

I'm semi-retired from the stage, but I'm still a proud mama hen. And I still run the local #NaPoWriMo.

another still, reading '"I" am already a crowd, enmeshed in others" over a black painted brick wall with faded white graffiti (illegible) on it

Grating teeth glass shattering
Pain. Dark. Altering.
Fog glossed eyes

I want to drown in the darkness.

* EP: Willoughby's Beach (2011) - more surf punk
* 12 Bar Bruise (2012) ~ #punk leaning toward The Replacements, introduction of spoken word songs
* Eyes Like the Sky (2013) ~ more #SpokenWord with surf punk
* Float Along - Fill Your Lungs (2013) ~ psychedlic surf punk + #psychpop [+]

This is a super short spoken-word poem I wrote. I’m kinda shy so this is the only spoken word video I’ve done, but I’d like to try make more in the future. 😊💜 #writing #poetry #spokenword

three-year poem

tiny tragedies
died in our bellies,
gasped in our throats.
these marks on our bodies
would give us away—
heat maps of our secrets.
what remained would never fulfill us,
and there was always someone
to take one more piece
and send the rest home in a cab.

Atlantic Records released a compilation of spoken word performances called “Sound Bites From The Counter Culture”

I picked this up to play on my radio show in college and was not disappointed. At age 20, this was my kinda politics. Timothy Leary, Hunter Thompson, and Abby Hoffman! But wait, there’s more!

Rollins talking about Iron Man.

Jello Biafra talking about the DK trial (an excerpt from “No More Cocoons”)

And my favorite at the time, Bob Guccione Jr. with an important monologue about how the media was handling the AIDS crisis of the time. It helped establish a lifelong scrutiny of mainstream media👇

Wondering what the #August_21 #OpenMic vibe is like? Some clues!

The pic highlights the atmosphere, and right now someone is sharing an instrumental piece they created with a delay pedal, guitar, and amp. Earlier i there was #SpokenWord poetry, songs from musicals, folk music, and covers and originals from local singers on their guitars.

If you're in #Edinburgh near #Newington, come check out out one Wednesday evening! Music starts at 7pm.

Early in 2023, I stood up an instance off my main domain to check out Mastodon and see if the rumors were true: did it really feel like early Twitter and the short lived ADN?

The answer is yes, it most certainly does, so I while I wanted to continue to engage and meet people,my domain kinda sucked and I never gave a proper #introduction.

I solved the domain issue, so figured I'd take care of the other with a proper first post.

My name is Kevan and I'm kind of from all over the US, but I've been in #Chicago since 2007.

I moved here for college and never left. I came to study #theater and #film with the idea I'd #write and perform on #SNL.

None of those things panned out: I wound up with a degree in #philosophy and #economics and found my way into tech with #engineering (#js, #python) and #ProductManagement.

I thought for a long time I'd wind up in #politics, but my stint running #product at BallotReady during the 2020 election—while the thing I'm most proud of professionally—broke me of that fantasy.

I'm current the VP of Product for a commerce focused #startup. Fortunately, I work from home because this #MechanicalKeyboard is loud AF.

#Travel, #photography, #cooking, listening to #music on #vinyl, reading #ComicBooks and writing on fancy paper with a #FountainPen (mostly #SpokenWord and #FreeVerse #poetry) are my hobbies. And I try to spend as much of my time with Toby, my #goldendoodle (#DogsOfMastodon) as I can.
