Definitely Beautiful, Definitely Beautiful, Definitely Beautiful
This is one of the best things anyone has ever shared with me, and I feel compelled to share it with everyone that I can (and delirious enough to think posting to my lj is a good way to do that). Taylor Mali is an 8th grade teacher who also happens to be a slam poet, and this is one of my favorite of his pieces. Seriously, I feel manic after watching this. It is most definitely the ultimate in mental porn. I want to BE him.
...because you see, I have a policy about honesty and ass-kicking, which is: 'if you ask for it, then I have to let you have it.'
