I have tried about ten times to write a coherent, non-gushing, non-crazy introduction to this week’s video. So far, I’ve been wildly unsuccessful.

But I’ll give it one more shot.


This is a video by the incredible, amazing, inspiring — rein it in, self, rein it in!! — Canadian spoken word poet Shane Koyczan. If you’ve never heard of him… well, prepare to spend the next five or six hours watching every video on his YouTube channel.

All right. Here you go. “Shoulders”, by Shane Koyczan and the Short Story Long.

Prepare yourself for goosebumps.

If you’ll be in Canada in March or April of next year, you can buy tickets for Shane Koyczan’s spoken word tour here.

Happy Terrible Tuesday, everyone 🙂
