Random stuff that came across my inbox...

Books: The Orlando Sentinel started a book blog. I couldn't care less because I am not an avid reader of anything not on Perez and Facebook, but if Tod Caviness (creator of the Poetry Vending Machine) is involved, which he is, I pay attention. And speaking of poetry....

Poetry: Dead Poets Slam (Broken Speech's most popular slam next to Nerd Slam) is where poets "perform as (their) favorite dead poet (or rapper) with props, costumes, and music." Dead rappers unite! (fist in air) And do poetry! (double fist the air) October 30th, 9:30pm. Stardust Video & Coffee, 1842 Winter Park Rd (map).

Puppets: A reminder! The Orlando Puppet Festival is coming in October. Woo! They should ask Broken Speech to join them in the festival by doing a show where the poets read their poems from backstage and a puppet performs them. PUPPET POET SLAM!!!!

My friend Denna, house manager of SAK Comedy Lab , loves Halloween so much that every year she picks up extra hours at a Halloween store that pops up every year around this time and attends every Halloween event she can get her costumed fingers on.

Some of the events, however, even interested Mark, the Scrooge of Halloween:

The name alone is cause for laughter. Plazaween. How about ParkinglotWeen? Stripclubween? This game could go on for hours.
