Inspired: Never Been a Paper Bag for ds106

BunnyColvinOf all the amazing moments in The Wire, possibly my all time favorite is Bunny Colvin’s a paper bag speech which sets the stage for legalizing drugs in Hamsterdam during season 3. So when Paul Bond took this monologue and put it to the end credit music I was inspired. It’s a simple, but very effective pairing, and it almost reminds me of the late Gil Scott-Heron’s poetry. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed, and might even be inspired to make some art, dammit!

A great moment of civic compromise, indeed! And it was the first thing I thought about when it came to adding a ds106 community member’s work to the Inspire! site (read more about Operation Inspire here). You can see Paul’s work memorialized here.
