Posts Tagged ‘Gil Scott-Heron’

Sean and me at the Grand Canyon

Everyone with a younger sibling eventually discovers (becomes aware of the fact) they actually have a brain. I’m not exactly sure when this happened with Sean and me.
I do remember at some point late in our teens, Sean and I sat and talked about the world and I discovered he was a Conspiracy Theorist.  In fact, he was the first conspiracy theorist I ever met and back then, I didn’t even have a name for it.
Anyway, his explanation for the world (as he saw it – and still sees it) was so RATIONAL, it stunned me.  I felt like Saul on the road to Damascus!
So, what else does an introverted young nerd do but write a poem about the experience…  This (“The Genius Shook“) was my homage to my “little” brother.
Later, Sean continued to rock my world by introducing me to Gil Scott-Heron and “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised“.  Who would have guessed, it wasn’t televised because  it would be YouTubed instead (on demand).
Enjoy!
