Oops - I meant it began at 10 AM.

6 months ago (before we knew anything about the above event), Lix and Kix began planning a world record poetry event. Details coming soon - we're still trying to nail down a free venue to host us for 6 days and nights - but it'll happen in the next 9 months, even if we have to do it in my house in Elyria. ;)

We're gonna aim for 144 hours.

You might notice that the feed goes inexplicably offline once in a while - but when that happens, you still have the option of watching previously recorded footage by clicking the links on the black screen.

A convincing argument can be made that every poetry reading is the world's longest poetry reading ever.

@Anon - you remind me of this by Ferlinghetti:

"We have seen the best minds of our generation / destroyed by boredom at poetry readings."
