I looked at my tumblr site randomly today (I never look at that, I actually forgot that I had one until I saw a link for tumblr and realized that I set one of those up), and saw a post by Big Poppa E that brought some sad news to me. Phil Aulie, a local poet and musician here in Austin passed away. He was 25. I competed against him back when I first started doing slam. His most successful poem back then was one called "Hotsauce," I still remember it. Anyway, sad news.
