SLEEP WITH ME UNTIL WE ARE BIRDS AT THE END OF THE WORLD by Steve Roggenbuck
Roggenbuck advises Baltimore that he remains its sexual cartographer. The
crowd, predictably goes wild. Rare footage of this IRL reading is courtesy of
Sarah Jean Alexander. In the background is the crème de le crème of the
Baltimore blogging scene. Yep, that’s right; the blurry figure in the
background is the world-famous, jet-setting blogger of Megan Boyle. People love
Megan Boyle. Vice digs what she does. Her work on the social anxiety of frozen
foods at the supermarket changes lives each and every post.
music plays in the background as Steve states he came all the way from
Twitter.com. Lots of people live on Twitter. Twitter is getting gentrified.
Before it used to be so easy to live on Twitter, just tweeting about breakfast
or pictures of oneself but now, what happened. It is out of control. People
need to build brands on Twitter, gain followers, and be relevant. Many drop out
of the Twitter game. For those thinking about leaving Twitter and leading a
stress-free Myspace life, don’t. While the Twitter game may be hard it brings
people together under the umbrella of witty comments and unique worldviews.
Steve walks next to a railroad. EMO music plays in the background. Steve Roggenbuck is the most EMO poet of any generation.
Other poets tried getting into Bright Eyes and failed. Steve succeeds. Evidence
can be seen in the sort of romantic poetry Steve writes such as ‘I want to be
down in the clown of you’ and ‘fricker’.
Speculation states ‘fricker’ is nothing more than a soft or Mormon way
of saying ‘fucker’. This is incorrect. When Steve says fricker he refers to the
a random shot of a play-horse. This is a not so subtle homage to the online
horse, horse_ebooks. Indeed for those unaware, horse_ebooks lives in
Massachusetts and works alongside such great minds as Noam Chomsky. Noam
Chomsky does not respect horse_ebooks however. Each one has a different
concentration. Noam is a political commentator and studies linguistics.
Horse_ebooks teaches a class on marketing in social media. Poor horse_ebooks
does not have any ‘spicy teacher’ rating on ‘ratemyteacher.com’. Students of
horse_ebooks complain of the blogs they need to maintain for the class.
Brand-building exercises are not understood by horse_ebooks’ students.
this video Steve is sponsored by America’s greatest transportation system, the
railroad. America owes a lot to its railroads hence why railroads usually pass
through people’s backyards. As trains pass through the countryside they say to
themselves “Oh that guy did a good job landscaping his backyard” and “When are
they going to throw out that jungle gym. Their kids are in their forties now.”
Life moves like a freight train, heavily subsidized by friends.
bird related at 6 am. This makes sense. Everybody is a bird in their own
special way. 6 am is the ‘birding hour’ when the birds start chirping. Steve
calls it, ‘just another hour on the internet’. This is a tender video to watch
with young children and indeed may be the most PBS-friendly thing Steve has
done. And with PBS being bashed by big old meanies this is exactly what they
