Several people have reported issues with the CAPTCHA image when submitting poetry or registering for the forum.  My observation was that several numbers look suspiciously like letters in the displayed images.  As such I have changed the font to something easier on the eyes.  If anyone continues to experience issues with the wrong characters displaying or characters displaying that look too much like other letters or numbers, please let me know.

Rant Time...

Just a quick rant, then I'll be on my way...  This isn't directed at any one person, but rather at, well, several people.


I don't mind having to make the occasional typo fix or having to correct some text coding.  I can handle that.  My problem is when every second or third line has a word spelled completely wrong, or the wrong version of a word used (their/there), or pure nonsense where I can't even GUESS what the line is supposed to say.  I don't care if you're the next Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Charles Bukowski, or Maya Angelou.  If you can't be bothered to check your spelling before submitting work, I can't be bothered to do anything other than click "delete."

Okay, rant over...  I now return you blog readers to your normally scheduled shameless self-promotion.

Open-Mic Turnout :-)

Turnout for last night's open-mic event was spectacular!  The cafĂ© was so crowded that there were people sitting on the floor.  Enough poetry was recorded for at least two podcast episodes, which I am now working on putting together.  The next podcast will go online some time this coming week, with another to follow the week of the 14th.  Stay tuned for more details.

We still need musicians or bands to perform on the upcoming podcast episodes!!!  Contact me if you're interested.
