Guante: The Family Business
This is one of my strongest spoken-word pieces, but there are a half-dozen or more versions of it floating around online. They're mostly shaky early performances, rushed slam performances, or just not that impressive. But this one, put together by Patrick Pegg for Unique Techniques, is just about right. If you were ever going to share/post just one of my videos, I'd probably vote for this one.
This was shot with the assistance of a grant from the MN State Arts board, and we have a bunch more coming, including the definitive version of my zombie love poem, my Twin Cities poem, my indie rapper poem, my cockroach love poem and a bunch of Guante & Big Cats music stuff. Stay tuned.
