Before you jump to conclusions about going to a poetry show, let me assure you, they guys are amazing. No whack garbage about flowers and moonbeams here. These guys are funny thought-provoking and family friendly without being boring or dull.
The Mayhem Poets are in town performing at the Children’s Theatre Company in South Minneapolis and so far they have been getting rave reviews from everybody who has seen the show.
We talked about Music, Poetry and Hip Hop culture and the fellas really had an awesome vibe. You can hear the interview this Sunday morning on “B96 In Focus with Miss Shannan” or come back here Monday to find the audio.
Here’s a video of one of their songs performed by Black Skeptic. It’s called “Frankenstein Saves Hop Hop”
You have a few chances to still see them next week, through November 7th at the Children’s Theater Company. I think we might even try to take Dom to a matinee. I have to try to fill his little brain with as much knowlege as I can.
Summer sunlight is the major source of vitamin D for most people, but they caution against too much sun exposure, since it can cause sunburns and eventually skin cancer. Plus, for folks like us that live in places like Minnesota, sunlight becomes pretty scarce for much of the year. You can also get your Vitamin D through your diet, but with a toddler, it seems hard for me to get him to eat the daily doses of anything. The experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics say give your kids Vitamin D supplements, and that what I’m going to do from now on. And the husband and I are staying on them too. When we got married we said, “till death do us part” and I plan for us to “put up” with each other for a long time.
I love this time of year. Not hot anymore, so I can wear all cute and much more figure flattering fall fashions. And not so cold that I begin to hate myself for moving to Minnesota. Watching th Fall colors with the family and hanging out up North is starting to make a little more sense. Before I just thought people were too lazy or too scared to go out of town.
Our first “family” road trip. Who knew I married “that guy” who loves to pack up the fam and drive them to far away places unknown.
“Just to get away,” he says, picking some remote location that’s perfect based upon its innacccesibility to modern conveniences.
But also a place where Dom can do what he loves most, RUN. Run, run, run till his little legs can’t take anymore; and all he wants to do is climb into momma’s lap and snuggle in for a breather. So, as long as there is running water, I suposse I can learn to love it too.
