Rollin' with Rollins

Dear Henry,

I love your political rants, travel anecdotes and memories of your Black Flag days. The way you find connections between all three of those seemingly unrelated topics, effortlessly switching back and forth between subjects - and decades - in a two hour spoken word performance is both inspired and inspiring. It's also fucking hilarious.

Stand still for a second though, would ya?

Much love,
Leah

So yeah, guess who came to town again? Everyone's favorite spoken word artist, world traveller, writer, actor, punk-rock icon, and guy-who-can-rant-for-two-hours-without-taking-a-drink-of-water...Henry Rollins. Sadly, this time there were no posters that I could adorn with dinosaurs. We did pick up the DVD of the performance he did to celebrate his 50th birthday though!
