Kick Off Meeting – Monday, September 22

To kick off the slam season (at least the CYHMN? slam season), we’ll be meeting at Wine Oh’s (811 1 Street SW) on Monday, September 22, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

If you’re interested in starting a slam team at your school, are thinking about entering a team, or would like some more information about the slam, please join us!

Immediately after the meeting some of us will be going downstairs to participate/watch the monthly poetry slam sponsored by The Ink Spot Collective, and you’re welcome to join us for that, as well.


The Videos are Coming! (as is a meeting on June 19)

Here is your highly-personalized-and-not-for-mass-consumption reminder of the meeting on June 19 at “Salt & Pepper” in Inglewood at around 4 p.m. (1413 9 Ave SE). This meeting is for anyone interested in having his or her school participate in CYHMN? in 2015. Or for anyone who loves great Mexican food served on a beautiful patio. (For more information, see the “Pop Quiz, Hotshot” post below this one.)

Also, videos of the performances from this year’s poetry SLAM have started to appear, which you can check out on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdodrR2O2s6gUN7uRWDN2iA) or by navigating using the toolbar at the top of this page to “Can I Hear Who Now?” and then the “Videos” page. Whichever is easier for you to manage. 🙂

More videos will be uploaded over the next few weeks as our crack team made up of an infinite number of monkeys sitting at an infinite number of computers find the time to randomly generate YouTube videos that precisely replicate all of the performances. It’s a slow process due to all of the highly restrictive (and highly annoying) laws governing the number of hours you can have monkeys working at computers without a break, and due to the “Shakespeare Monkey Project” taking so many of the good monkeys.

Nonetheless, our monkeys thank you, in advance, for your patience.
