Some Comments I've Received

My first feminist slam poem!  I’ve been really into Alix Olson lately and thought I’d try it.  I don’t love my speaking voice (or the lighting in this freaking video), but I do enjoy the format.  (Embed not working right now so clicky the linky).

  1. Nice, Judith!

    I was in a feminist writing group in high school and we had an Alix Olson CD we passed around for awhile that I enjoyed. I still love “Armpit Hair (Mammally Factual).”

  2. Hahahaha! That was AWESOME! I’m laughing out of pure enjoyment, just so it’s clear. Slam poetry is relatively new to me, but I really enjoyed that. Please, do keep it up!
