This dude is on another level. Yes, in a way, it’s improvised gibberish to some, however, he went so far into so many things. I think and write in a similar manner. Never practiced flowing to this degree in a live “improvised” setting, but he’s so good because he drops his truths through redundant, almost nonsensical wording. It’s funny to read the comments of those who got it, those who didn’t, and those that liked it and imagined to know what he said. If you added enough commas, perentheses, colons, semi colons and brackets to the words, his prose is dope! People like to hear things in order: 1,2,3,4... a,b,c,d.... the problem with the irrational mind is that it connects 1 to countless things, as well as 2, 3, and 4. Just because things are out of order or spoken in a web versus a line, doesn’t mean that it’s nonsense or just some improvisational drivel. His artistry and what makes him standout to me was his ability to sound irrational because of the connections and wording while simutaeously dropping bombs. The number of things that he dropped and spoke on is impressive. He wove them into an awesome piece of art and if it was “improvised”,that’s even more impressive. The irrational mind is insanely powerful and is hard for the rational mind to unpack. This guy is obviously (un)fairly balanced and incredibly fast. Keep pushing yourself, bro (as if you’d see this). If you didn’t get it, you might want to keep pushing yourself, also.
What if.... and you never get to know what I'm thinking of in your mouth or how much I love your mother in law says she was in a minute of silence for a few days in a hurry and then we got a little more of it in the middle and I dont have a good night?

my soul left my body at 5:00, and by the time it was over, I had solved all the answers to the universe, and made a youtube channel. To bad I fixed a universe somewhere else, and Im stuck in this one. Still have that youtube channel tho.
Reggie Watts. Worst TED video seen. Listened for 1 min., 32 sec. before stopping the gibberish. Suggestions to Watts: get a haircut and shave, lose 50 lbs. and get a decent wardrobe. My impression was that Watts is just another variant of a stupid “N”egro.
I am kind of amazed at how many people found this to be purely nonsensical, or expect dancing. He is so brilliant that I can only listen to this with ferocious intesity and keen inspiration, marvelling at his gentle beauty. Also, this isn't a concert, are people supposed to listen to the convoluted lecture for understanding and then immediately loose their minds "bopping their heads" for the 30 seconds - a minute that he plays? This is a finely woven story and an artistic masterpiece, if you ask me (and you didn't). Not to mention (though I am, apparently) that he ends each segment abruptly, easliy, and seamlessly transitions back into telling this story. I love to dance but this makes me feel on a deep level.
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
