    Hello all :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Jester Belmont, May 21, 2016.

    Hello there

    My Pen name is Jester, just Jester- I am a post beat poet by trade and have recently gone public. Outside of my post beat poems I also write short horror stories. I was born and raised under the Californian sun but enough about the man behind the mask. First and foremost I am a writer, secondly I'd like to think my spoken word is half stand up that screams "Bill Hicks clone" and half performance art. I'm here to talk writing and art and hopefully grow in my skills as a writer. If you'd like to know more please drop a line.

    -Jester

    Hello Jester, hope you stick around. I'd be interested to see one of your beat poems. What chance a link?

    Well actually I just got my first book published (albeit on amazon self publishing but it's still a stepping stone :))

    The book is called California Gothic and it's under the name Jester I tried to post a link here but it wouldn't allow me.

    And thanks for liking the name, I'm creating an entire backstory for my performance art

    Welcome Jester, Bill Hicks has got to be my favorite Stand up/ performer. I only wish I could have seen him on stage.

    A casual thought here—but I do think he lives on a bit in Doug Stanhope.

    Stand up guy, very acerbic but curiously likeable for it.

    Tag lines like "I'm Doug Stanhope—and that's why I drink".

    Carlin is my guy, when it comes to comedy. Also Lewis Black, I don't know too much about this Hicks except in name only. Oh well...

    I am breaking the rules by even speaking to you before you have settled in, so please don't tell anybody I was here. (They will lock me back up in the room of silence again, and it is a dreadful place.):supergrin:

    But I cannot leave you without this standard issue kitten, if you wish to survive in here.:superlaugh:

    This is a quote of Hicks's to whet your whistle @Cave Troll :

    Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves—Here's Tom with the Weather.
