Rememberance Day for Authors and Poets?

Today is a big day in the world of writers and poets.

The following all share a birthday today: Mark Twain, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Jonathan Swift, Israel Singer, Mark Lemon, John McCrae, Philip Sidney, John Dickson Carr and Eugene Walter.

Also, these people passed away on this date: Oscar Wilde, Compton Mackenzie, James A. Baldwin, Fernando Pessoa, Terrence Rattigan, Margaret Walker, George Henry Lewes, Arthur Ficke, Patrick Kavanaugh, Norman Cousins and Christophe Tarkos.

Methinks a new holiday should be in order ;)
Check the "love this" box at the bottom of this post if you agree with me.

In other news, I finally made the big investment and purchased myself a netbook which will be used for my writing. An external DVD/CD-RW drive will be arriving shortly which I will use to install Microsoft Word and then the setup will be complete :)

This is so exciting for me. I am also in the process of choosing a poem from Scrambled Egg: Poems and Other Confessions for my next video. I'm personally leaning towards "It's All For You." Stay tuned, my friends.

Exclusive videos NOT posted on YouTube ;)

Until I get my third video shot (which will hopefully be soon), I thought I'd treat you to some never-before-seen videos which are not available on my YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy.

This is the original test video where I stretched my reading muscles for the first time in many years. This was shot on June 2nd, 2011...the poem I'm reading is "Fire Branded" from ROTCT.

Shot on July 17th, 2011, this is an outtake version of "Flight of the Lover" which very quickly crashes and burns right at the end.

2nd video posted last night :)

I don't know why I didn't post this last night while I was sharing the link at my other spots online, but better late than never, right?

Last night I decided pretty much on a whim to shoot my 2nd video. I wanted to read a poem from Matthew's book "Exhuming Juliet" and figured I should do it while the idea was still fresh in my mind.

Hope you enjoy it. Please like, comment and share the crap out of it!
