The Good Shtuff

I like Social Media. Facebook. Twitter. Why? Because I get to find the coolest things. And when I find cool things, I like to talk about them.

"What cool things?" you ask. Here's a few:

1. Entertainer Aindrias de Staic

2. Blogger Daithi O'Connor

3. Writer Eddie Stack

and my newest cool find is:

4. Poet Brian O'Driscoll

Why do I like Brian's writing style?

a) He makes you think without spoon feeding you the same old lines we've all heard or read.
b) He displays courage in doing what fulfills him, what he's passionate about.
c) He expresses raw, outlandish, vivid, soft and hard emotions and curious thoughts.
d) He is contemporary, fresh, and interesting.

His website says, "...anything goes...," and "A poem with the absolute right kind of magic running right through it really can mean the world to someone if appreciated to the fullest extent." If you're so inclined, I encourage you to visit and who knows what you may find to appreciate.

Recently, I made the above short clip of random phrases I picked from his website. Don't go through your life with your head buried in the sand. Open your eyes to something different, something eccentric, something new.

Open your eyes to the good shtuff!
