Today’s show feature local Athens poets Celeste Divine and Isai, who specialize in spoken word and perform regularly every Wednesday at the Bulldog Cafe’s Poetic Soul event. It was a really great conversation touching on topics like black holes, love, relationships, poetics, philosophy, and I haven’t even mentioned the poems. Props to Celeste and Isai for bringin such killer poems and thoughts to the mic. Listen to the show in it’s entirety, and then listen to it again, and then go cook a big dinner for yourself and play the show in the background, and then go to a window and count how many different sounds you hear, then listen to Purple Cow some more, and then…Enjoy.
You can find Isai on Facebook and Myspace, and you can visit Celeste’s website [which I will link you to as soon as I find where I wrote it down]. There’s another event going on *tonight* at The Globe in Athens, Ga. featuring these two performance poets, other poets, and musicians. It’ll go from 8PM-2AM, and you can drop in and hang out as long or as often as you like. I’ve also been told it’ll be a dance party!
Tune in next week at Noon for some more poetry! I’ve stumbled upon a couple of albums of spoken word and poetry recordings in the Archives, so you definitely don’t want to miss these diamonds radiating from the deep, underwater Archive-cave.
Thanks to everybody who tuned in, who always tunes in, and who will tune in five years long after we’ve passed the show down to other poet-hosts…
