    I've got a friend who is a Beat poet.  I guess you could say that he's a beat Beat poet.  And, since he's now old, he's a beat, beat BEAT poet.

    The Beatniks always expressed their dislike of the square established world, the same things people don't like now. What many ppl today aren't aware of is that we are copying almost everything from then till now. including poetry slams, spoken word open mikes w/ music, weed,

    There's always somebody playing Chess in these beat movies. Why not Scrabble? By the way, "beatniks" has an anagram in the word, "snakebit."

    Is it me or does that woman in scene 2:38 sporting, ah the nautical term would be "wedding tackle".  In another words not a real woman!

    Maila Nurmi also appeared in 'The Magic Sword." She was related to Finish Olympian Paavo Nurmi (track, if I remember correctly)

    WHY is UNCLE FESTER showing up in Every Beatnik Poetry Reading? I just watched him at the other poetry reading in "high School Confidential"

    I can't get over the shirtless fat guy sitting there behind her in some kind of Hindu trance. What is the thinking? What's his deal?

    Cute! OWS: Anachronistic, but cute.

    Someone asked, why didn't I dig Maila's poem? Well, compare it with YouTube's clip from 'High School Confidential, Beat Poetess, "Tomorrow is a Drag"'…and check out Jackie Coogan on the piano. (That cat got around!)

    she's doing a poem smoking a cigarette and holding a rat. two things i despise…but the poem is good. trying to listen and figure out the significance of the rat vs. some other animal, or why any animal at all…crazy, man…crazy.

    Lousy poem…lucky white rat on Vampira's chest, though.

    I'm wondering about the guy complaining to Jackie Coogan about "fake Bohemia" – what's he contrasting it with? Jazz Age Paris? Weimar Berlin? Post-War Vienna?

    FYI: Her name is Maila Nurmi. As Vampira she was in "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and briefly hosted horror movies on TV. The bald gent at the table is Jackie Coogan, aka Uncle Fester from The Addams Family. Which is ironic as the Vampira character was inspired by Charles Addams' drawings of Morticia. Many thanks for posting this.
