Todd & Every Member At The Lottery Post:

Once again I want to say thank you for all your support!  As you very well know I went to Austin, Texas, on Monday, Dec 3rd to perform!  I am positive it was all of your voting and support that pushed me over the edge.  Things were very close and I was ranking in the #6, spot, I needed to maintain the 5th position.  After Todd posted the great thread of support for me, The Members here performed!!  You guys moved me from the number 6 spot to a rank of #4, and that sent A Soldier To Texas!   

I had a nice time it was all exspenses paid from airline tickets, to hotel stay at the double tree, and food.  I really enjoyed myself, once I arrived they had some one pick me up from the airport and I was then taken to the hotel to check in. I got to my room around 1:30 in the afternoon and was told to meet back up in the lobby around 3pm.  I met the other poets in the lobby and the comics because our stages were done together, so it was cool to meet people from all over.  We got to "Antone's" the place were we would be performing that night in front of a live audience and critics.

The camera crew interviewed us all individually before we performed, we each had a ten minute set.  In the ten minutes I had I did 3 poems, afterwhich I stayed on stage and the critics critiqued me.  I then went back stage and was interviewed again re: what I thought about the critiques and how I felt about my performance.  The comedy stage was done first, I was the second poet to perform so I didn't even hit the stage until about 10pm, but I had the time of my life!

NOW....the voting started back on 14th of Dec...and it is set in EST and will only last a week...until the 21st of Dec everything is still the same as far as voting goes...voting once per day...this time it's for the $10,000.00

I'm very excited and overwhelmed by the support I have received from all of you at the Lottery Post, you guys pushed hard and helped me to make it to the top 5 in a nationwide competition!   It's such a great feeling because there where 211 poets to start...now I only have to beat out 4 people so I BELIEVE with your continued help and suport it can and will be done! ;--)

I appreciate your efforts, time and patience, and I only ask that all of you continue to vote and keep the positive encouragement coming because the encouragement that I recieved here was so overwhelming and positive!  I would like to also encourage those who may not have voted at all prior, and those that have, please continue to vote. 

Other pieces have been added and you can also preview the interview by clicking on backstage once you have me up.  If you haven't registered, you must do so in order to vote, and it only takes a few minuets to do so.  Now when you first get to famecast if you click on the pull down menu that says Stages, you will see Stage 11: Spoken Word, you will find the top 5 artist which will include me! ;--)  in the window you will see me, "TheWordSmith"  click my photo and get ready to vote! 

Again I can't thank you enough Todd, for allowing this to happen at the Lottery Post, it has made Your Soldier so proud to know that people would support me in my dream.  I can only say, "Proudly I Serve My People In Our Great Nation"  I am extreemly grateful for all of you!

Happy Holidays

Your Soldier

                  I had a really tough time finding how to vote, so here's the link.  First you have to log in, then go here http://www.famecast.com/contest/stage_top5.php?stage_id=32&round_id=170   On the right side of the page click on TheWordSmith's photo and wait for his video to load, then there's a Vote For This Artist in blue below the video.

                  Good luck Dez!

                            Dezmond,

                            I added voting instructions to your post above.  (Thanks LuckyLilly for the link!)

                            I just wanted to say that your performance was absolutely brilliant.  The word that comes to mind is surprising.  I think that's the most brilliant part (at least for me) -- that your poems flow so well, and go to where I don't expect them to.

                            Great performance too!  You seem very comfortable in front of an audience.  (And somebody shoot whoever put that mic up there!)  Wink

                            I, for one, will continue voting daily.  I hope everyone else does the same.  You're worthy of every vote!
