Exuberant in his performance style, perceptive in his discourse, and unusual in his coffee preference. Both funny and insightful, SAMSI is a writer (or, as he puts it, more of a conceptual explorer) who has spent many years hitchin’ and hoppin’ around the United States. It stemmed from a life-altering epiphany atop the Golden Gate Bridge. He’s been everywhere man… New Orleans, Hawaii, Montana. Now he’s posted back up in San Diego, California (for a bit), before heading off the Portland to join, SHANGA VISION, a new film production company. SO: Is it possible to find the deeper meaning of life without travel? And when is the right time to stop and stand still? (Aside from on a highway in the middle of a traffic jam.) And what is it with writers and their issues (namely why do so many have so many?) All this and more discussed + some jazzy-soulful-electrifying poetry. PLUS intro and outro music provided by one of Samsi’s own experimental bands.
