I love a good rant; doubly so if it’s simultaneously intelligent, comedic and poignant. And I’ve never been to a poetry slam, so I’ll apologize if this is par for the course (but I sincerely doubt it.) There’s not a lot I can say about the topic without giving it away, but suffice to say it’s possibly the most passionate rant I’ve ever heard about a very familiar childhood topic. It’s also very reminiscent of George Carlin and Bill Hicks – commentary masked with whimsy and tinted with a slight hint of complete and utter insanity.
Give it thirty seconds, and I can almost guarantee that you’ll be along for the whole ride.
Rant the fuck on, Shane Hawley, and thank you for bringing us along on your insane, looping rollar coaster of verbal barrage.
