Belated happy 4th to you, Flower, and some interesting reading, a local poet made good...
Columbus Georgia performance poet gains national fame (Story by Mark Rice)
======[Begin_Quoted_Text]===== ====
"Columbus Georgia performance poet gains national fame... Chiara Richardson feels she was born to be known for her performance poetry - "God makes me a message that he wants to send to people," she said, "and I'm just a vessel. The nation will see and hear Richardson, a Columbus native and 1999 Shaw High School graduate, deliver one of those messages when she appears this fall on an episode of "Verses and Flow" on TV One. Richardson is among the 24 poets selected for the show's fourth season [...] "Chiara is very to-the-point in her approach to writing... There is no fluff, just a well-constructed story. She is definitely a product of Southern hip-hop. Audiences can certainly hear and enjoy the influences of great rap ensembles like Goodie Mob and Outkast in her work. She is truly a lyricist that knows where she is from and doesn't mind offering up some Southern hospitality on the mic."
"Verses and Flow" is a 30-minute variety show, not a contest. Richardson's episode was filmed in front of a live audience at Siren Studios on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. She said she will be in one of this season's eight episodes, starting this fall, but she doesn't know when it will air.

Morning, Denny! Be like those football players on television when their team wins and they come up behind their coach and pour a cooler of gatorade and ice over his head ... That kind of cool? I got this! LOL ...

You stay cool, too!...

Hey Flower I hope your weekend is going great. I am so ready for that cold front coming in Tuesday :) I will never understand the way people spend money and then give stuff away when they are tired of it. I bought about $3000 dollars worth of purses for $80 yesterday. 6 Coach and 3 Dooney bags and they all are like new. My wife grabbed her favorites and I will sell the rest on ebay :) Now the woman has empty clausets and she can go back and fill them back up. We are such a rich country !
You socred big time, Denny ... what do they say? Less is more and more is less or something like that, lol ...

I'm pup sitting a BIG yellow lab, who eats SENIOR food so I figure he's a little older than my pups ... he plays goofy ... hit me in the back of the head with his wagging tail and thought I got the old whiplash thing, lol ... He runs with Chance but no way he can keep up because he outweighs Chance by about 100#s ... he's really goofy ... His name is HOOVER, we call him Doofus, haha ... One comes in, they all come in, One goes out, they all go out ... Really? for a week? I signed up for this? What was I thinking? LOL ... it's all good ... They play well together ... and to think, they're all male pups ... too funny! Have a good'un ... FC <3 ...

Hi Flower-Child.
I tried going through Mozilla and it is working a lot faster. I think my Internet Explorer has the worst of the viruses.
Stay cool.
Hi Fisherman! How you doing? For some reason every time I try to use google or IE I seem to be having the same problem as yourself ... Think I'll try the Mozilla thing myself ... These virus' keep popping up when I clean my computer every night and catches them so as long as I don't go googling anything I'm alright ... So I'll ask everyone to do their own homework and don't ask me to google for them, lol ...

Been very busy last couple of weeks and my get some sort of reprieve this week ... Haven't been here in awhile, nor on F/B except with what I do with my phone ... I have about 98 notifications but it's hard to do those on a smart phone, dumb phone, Iphone, etc., lol ... but I'm on my desk top now so think I'll go see what's up ...

Great to see you and catch you, D & M around the corner ... 3's & 8"s to all of you! FC <3 ...

Hello Flower... we are in the summer here, no doubt there...

Here's what I was doing catch-up research on last night, which is some pretty good reading I think, the night the Rolling Stones came to our area, the first and only time I know of:

The Rolling Stones in Auburn Alabama, November 14th 1969

Poster:
http://www.thewareaglereader.com/2011/04/flye...

Thanks to Google Books, I found the story about Chuck Berry in the
Columbus-Phenix City area, in 1969. He was opening act for The Rolling
Stones, who had a show in Auburn Alabama. This was revealed briefly in
Stanley Booth's book on The Stones, " The True Adventures of the Rolling
Stones", starting around page 186:

http://books.google.com/books...

"...In Atlanta we rented a car... heading down to Auburn... past pine woods
and rolling Georgia fields. "Looks very much like Scotland, very pleasant."
Stu said. Boy as we went deeper into the country, passing signs ---Don't
lose your soul to the mark of the beast, Jesus will save U--- Mo-Jo gas
stations, and tarpaper shanties [...] I was driving 90 miles an hour through
the Alabama backwoods but the sky had turned black by the time we reached
Auburn, and it had begun to snow [...] I would be staying in Columbus that
night, and the others would be flying to Illinois. The Dickinsons and I sat
in the car of the parking lot and smoked [...] They had come in with Chuck
Berry because they happened to be staying in the same motel as Berry in
Columbus and they knocked on Berry's door to ask if I was there [...] he did
agree to take the Dickinsons to the show if they would guide him there. They
had to stop for directions only once. "One of you Caucasians better do the
asking," Berry said at an Alabama gas station.[...] The first show had been
late and the second show was already so late that Terry Reid was cancelled.
The Auburn Special Events people were upset because the coeds had to be in
their dorms by midnight. The girls were not groupies or even fans, just
coeds with Friday night dates, and the reason there were not more of them
was that a lot of the boys were saving money to take them to the big
football game tomorrow night.[...]...on the phone with some higher
authority, made the announcement that the Auburn coeds had been granted what
he called "When-over permission" meaning they could stay out until the
concert was over. "While the Rolling Stones are getting ready to come out,
let's hear a great Auburn cheer," Jett said, leading the crowd in a
crescendo: "Warrr-EAGLE!" [...] The Stones' 2nd set, they were looser and
warmer and the audience, War eagles or not, were warmer too.[...] The
lights came up for the last three songs [...] "It might happen," Mick said,
"even in the streets of Auburn--- Everywhere I hear the sound of marchin',
chargin feet, boys..."

Good morning, Will ... that is very interesting ... that is some reading you can do on "poem" night!

"Warrr-EAGLE!" to catch the audience by surprise ... that would be a trip, for sure!... All I was good for in poetry was lucky to get a limerick out, haha ... or on the fly now and again when someone said something and I'd come up with some rock & roll song and the most appropriate time ... Thank you so much for sharing! Good day! Peace & Love! FC <3 ...

Heh... you may not have heard the story of how the band almost broke up last year, Flower... we were doing an important show downtown, the same time that Auburn was playing Alabama... Auburn won, Jack Snipe yelled "War Eagle" into the microphone which caused the drummer to quit the band, he being an Alabama fan. Out of Loyalty (to the drummer, not me!) the bass player and Patricia the tambourinist quit the band.

Leaving Jack Snipe and Robbie Wright (and always loyal Brian Mallard) to stay with me, where we've gone on to make some of our best music ever:

Check out "Rock-N-Roll Night (The Video)/ Will Dockery & The Shadowville All-Stars" - http://www.reverbnation.com/open_graph/video/...

Not sure what the tambourine player, drummer or bassist are up to these days, exactly, since I don't see either much if I can help it... I do know that their spin-off group idea didn't last more than a few days, though.
