Poets take risks in their work

Brenda, the YouTube star!

Was that H filming? And did I hear him laughing near the end?

Berlynn said...

I think there was not nearly enough earth-shattering screaming going on. There would've been, had I been along for the ride!

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha! Yep, Amy, that was H filming and me laughing.

Berlynn, rest assured, the screaming came later. :)

Anita Daher said...

What fun! Merry Christmas Brenda :-)

MackJohnny said...

Now I just want one of those.

Ariel Gordon said...

Craziness! (What fun!)

Berlynn said...

You mean it got worse than than, B? Holy krikee!?! You're a much riskier poet than I am, B!

It took a half hour to download, but after seeing this and that picture of a python swallowing an alligator that eventually split the snake in half, I can now truly say I've seen it all and can die with a smile on my face. I always thought I would attain completion through poetry, but it turned out it was Brenda on YouTube. Goodbye cruel world.

GM said...

You know what happened to Frank O'Hara, don't you? (There were couple close calls for your cameraman, I think.)

Tracy Hamon said...

Can we get one of those for colony?

Ariel Gordon said...

Which - a giggling H? A devil-may-care B? Or a chauffeur-driven drift buggy? (Or even just a copy of H/B/c-d db video?)

Tracy Hamon said...

Door #1, door #2, door #3. Oh, Monty, Monty, Monty.

The B is already going, H isn't, as far as I know, but that would be fun too, a giggling H, a snow-drift buggy would be perfect; however, I must drive.

ShelleyB said...

Hi Brenda -- watching that You-Tube video was fun! I'm with Tracey... we need a snow-drift buggy at the colony.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Anita and Ariel, it was fun. Well, until I saw the photos of me in my wet jeans. Not a good look.

Berlynn, there's nothing like a ride on one of those to put you in touch with your heart. Heck, at times it tried to leap right out of my chest.

Ok. I'll tell Wayne he should build buggies for John, Tracy and ShelleyB. And I will not ride with Tracy. Knowing her, she'd be filming while driving.

G, I didn't know O'Hara died that way. But ya, H just about got Franked a couple times.

crikey! b, i can hear you cackling away through your snow-drenched lips!

Brenda Schmidt said...

And snow-drenched they were! More like snow-packed. I had snow banks behind my glasses, too.
