I just got home after taking part in the first ever Madpoetix Slam and it was SICK! So much raw talent under one roof was unbelievable to witness, much less even take part in.
I made it through two rounds: 1st round got me a score of 29.5 / 30 points, and the 2nd round got me a score of 29.4 / 30 points. Simple math will tell you that I scored 58.9 points / 60, but unbelievable math will tell you that I placed 4th overall. That’s how CRAZY it was that night.
I’m humbled and amazed that my storytelling pieces, which had to be less that 3 minutes each, were so well received when surrounded by such talent poets and spoken word artists. I am humbled beyond belief.
I hope a good chunk of folks come out to the Story Slam tomorrow night. It’s going to rawk!
