March Madness is awesomeness! (this shiz is off the hook!)

wow. i've met a ton of new people lately in San Francisco. it's total March Madness of awesome here! i fuckin' love it! i'll write more in a sec...

okay, so i can walk around a little bit with my knee brace (had knee surgery about a month ago). so, what what. last Friday, Dolores Park right by my house was off the hook! i met Zach Houston the famous type writer poet in the Bay Area/San Francisco, and he busted me out a poem on his total old school manual type writer. meanwhile the park was filled with at least a thousand people in front of us and about a thousand bicyclists filled the road right behind us. it was jam pack-edd with cyclists! one cop rolled up in his cruiser. i said to Zach: "Just one cop can't make this stop." some riders got off their bikes and raised them to the sky in commemoration of the Critical Mass bicycling event (held the last Friday of every month here in San Francisco).

here's the poem fresh off Zach's typewriter:

you just tell him what you want the poem to be about, and then he slams it out with type writer keys and hammers flying!

here's da wordage - (i told him to write about: "entrepreneurial courage" for me):
"the--bubble of having done it is free enough if we let it be paid for with feeling held--over our--threatening head if capitalism is winning we join them with any actually meaning anything is work--if we can get it--in the way of daily life -- like critical mass of anarcho-capitalists will translate into us winning with entreprenuerial consciousness -- -- -- is sarcastically gathered and resold"
--By Zach Houston (

what's your March been like?

P.S. i've got at least a few more future posts to write about people of awesome i've met lately , and the March madness in San Francisco. so, any of you out there in SF i've met and given my card to, you're coming up, don't worry. ...and don't worry also, because i'll change the names or omit them to protect the innocent.

This post just oozes with joie de vivre. Love it lots. I'm picturing the scene in my mind. Been too long since I visited The City!
The poem is cool, the poet sounds cooler...

I'm kind of relieved that there is a gripage reprieve this week. I don't really have any grumblings going on. This week is clean-a-palooza around the mom-in-law visiting at the end of the week, and I love her and I love cleaning so it's a win-win here.
Glad your knee is on the mend!
Kudos to an awesome poet!
