It Has Become Uncool To Sound Like You Know What You’re Talking About
I posted another spoken-word poem by Taylor Mali some time ago. This one is the first I heard by him, and I really like the kinetic typography version (that’s what they call videos with moving text synched to the audio).
It’s clever and funny, but more than that. I think Taylor Mali gets to the root of contemporary speaking mannerisms here. Do you, like, agree?
Thanks to my student Laurissa S. for sharing this with me.
Best line: “We have become the most aggressively inarticulate generation to come along since, you know, a long time ago.”
