The revolution will not be televised...Gil Scott Heron

Although I have a blog that was prepared to be posted today, my revolutionist ideologies will not be televised! I choose to read the blogs of every single person in my new found family to support your flow. Several new fam's posts have truly given me more appreciation of all of you.

I shudder to think what can be accomplished in the world of writing if we continue to draw inspiration from each other and support the creative flow in even this small community.

With the risk of sounding soft...I need everyone to keep up the good work so that I can draw from your strengths so that when you need it...I'm right there for you with your own reserves.


Enjoy, fam.

mark bey: I agree, their are some things I would like to do lik starting writing clubs.

If folks can record their work into an Mp3 I could post that and we could create some kind of online writers corner to support each other. Primarily short stories and essays I guess.

Anyway I thinking on it. Peace and good morning brother dc.

I mean I'm not a writer for a longshot.. *well as good asome others but I digress*.. but when I read works of others, it inspires me to pick up my pen and write in my journal :)

You too Bruh. You all up in it!

Ced.It/Meant.It said...

Blessings to you, DC! Bruh Heron is the man who inspired me to write waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day. That video was great, too! The animation was a nice touch.

Shai said...

OK, I did not know who Gil Scott-Heron was until recently. I am like why the hype. I saw him on youtube and def poetry. Maybe I have to warm up to it.

As I watched Def Poetry, I realized, I respect poets and there will be some who I will not get.

you said it all right there and i'm finding that we are all slowly and surely coming together for a greater good.

this revolution, televised or not will happen.

Sojourner G said...

See? And I was trying to leave my Dynasty out of it. You're not a glutton for punishment are you?

Believe it or not, I hope you all win tonight. A sweep would be bad for basketball, so tell your boy to man up...scratch that, the rest of them to man up!

dc_speaks said...

KIKI said...

Nice post D!

While writing & poetry is something I do for fun & personal therapy...I draw my inspirations from poets like Heron (the brotha is deep), but there is also some serious talent right here in blog-world that I have found myself drawn to for inspiration as well.

Ya'll do that ish...I'll be right here supporting ya'll!

"At the risk of sounding soft"

??

My brother, if anything, this world needs MORE of a delicate touch in many matters.

You can sound "soft" all day long and your words will still be heavy to me.

Oh, btw, I tagged you for that 10 Random Facts meme. I think you already got a start on it. Fact #1, I am an OSU fan. Lol.

Dave said...

P.s. revolutionary ideas is what some of us want...

dc_speaks said...

lol@Dave...I'll do the tag on Monday. along with Monday musings.

Thank you for the words of encouragement and the tag. I appreciate ya.
Oh btw...Im not just a fan..im a former student athlete of the OSU Buckeye.

@Kiki: thanks girl. you rock. you can be a cheerleader all you want, but I think you could get in teh game if you wanted to

Dave said...

Ahhhh I rest my case! ^^

You are entrenched! I've known guys, never left the couch, but would rather sign over the deed to their everything than lose to filthy, cheaty Michigan. Lol.

A player? Now that's just taking it to the next level. First hand experience right? Heheh.

I can respect that. You of all people, I can respect that. :)

CapCity said...

i'm late on this one - but u know life gets "in the way of blogging" sometimes. LOL!

Mannnn, Gil Scott is da TRUFF!!!! But then I've been a revolutionary since i was a young'un. LOL! That man is SOO far ahead of his time! Sadly, Shai - most people don't really get him....

Despite all that the world/media takes him thru - I LOVEEEEEEE GIL Scott Heron! Saw him LIVE several times - a true blessing! He's like JAZZ - u need to expose yourself even if u don't understand him - because they are keys to our FOUNDATION!!
