When we invited longtime Contributing Poet to join us as our feature, we knew we’d be in for a treat. Just how big of a treat this Louisiana poet would bring was what we didn’t know. Turns out, it was a heapin’ helpin’ of some delicious poetry! Missed it? Then check out of UStream feed here!

Thanks to ALL the wonderful poets and musicians who shared their words, their verses and their fine light with us. It truly was a fine night to be alive and in our Mad Swirl world. In case you missed this Mad action, here is the line-up of who was who…

HUGE thanks to Swirve (Chris Curiel & Gerard Bendiks) for keeping the beat til the wee hours of the night. We got taken to another dimension of time and space on the wings of their jazzy madness!

And as always, big THANKS to the patron saint of the loco local mad ones, Kevin, owner of Absinthe Lounge, who has given 120 reasons to give him all the mad props and love that we do!

And finally we would like to thank ALL of you who freely shared their hand claps, finger-snaps, hoots and howls with all the mad ones who got up on this sacred mad swirlin’ mic.

We look forward to ALL the m-adventures to come! Stay tuned…
