The first blot has been dropped, giving birth to our story and our inner-creeping characters. With vibrating silhouettes and blood-pumping words, the Rhyme Crooks introduced our four pragmatists of this upcoming spoken word rhyme-tale. With our artist striking his blank canvas, the evening took form.
As each Crook’s shadow stretched its presence upon the audience, poetry filled up the room. First character to slip into the scene was Giggles, our representation of madness, chaos, and havoc. With a scatter of questioned wordplay and frantic melodies, the audience was thrown into the deep end. With confusion and anticipation buttering up the environment, the audience eagerly awaited the second.
Jezebel, the second character brought to life, slid her wet ways into the scene, representing desire, sex, and lust. The Crooks tossed her threw different perceptions and weaved her further down the page, reminding us that the rush in our veins is there for a reason.
At intermission, keeping true to the traditions of hip-hop, INFITIY and SPACE displayed their talents showcasing their quick-kickin’ grooves by breakdancing for everyone. Mesmerized and entertained, the audience eventually made their way back into the venue to catch the second half.
Welcoming them with calming narration, the Crooks smooth the audience back into their realm. Introducing the third character to the page, Po, the representation of Wisdom, Truth, and Nature, allowed the audience to find their grounding, and start to grasp the concept behind the event. An easy flowing beat coasted the audience further down the Crooks’ thought-provoking journey, setting them up for fourth, and last, of the characters.
Music, the representation of Harmony, True Love, and Peace, breathed life into the audience. Completing the quartet of characters, and setting up the conclusion. As all the characters came to a halt, a realization was unmasked; that each one of these characters lives in the page, and is given life through ink, word, and voice. Now with the four characters unleashed from the essential Ink Blot, they await their next page.
As finale, artist, Steve “SP” Williams, revealed his painting, depicting the four characters and the unmasking of his own inner Giggles, Jezebel, Po and Music. With narration and pieces blended with Chinese and English, silhouettes flickering, and all-original beats by Antithesis, the first chapter of “A Nook for Rhyme Crooks” comes to a close.

What to expect:
Walking into the same setup, a high-caliber artist will, from scratch, create a piece depicting his own interpretation of this next chapter of “A Nook for Rhyme Crooks“. The Rhyme Crooks, who includes, Antithesis, Lux, OzWonka, MellowJunkie, Limpbizzie, and Prosperus, will come together once again behind the screen, to bring to life our four main characters, Giggles, Jezebel, Po and Music. Representing the four raw emotions; Chaos, Desire, Wisdom and Love, respectively, expect to take a ride through your inner core as we all together journey through a limitless world of rhyme, hip-hop and poetry.
A performance promising to be a visual tease and a jungle of flavorful wordplay, “Nook” will paint and splat its unique story all over the audience’s blank canvas, and give them a sensation that can only be truly captured by spoken word. Featured in a mix of Chinese and English, prepare to stretch your boundaries of linguistic understanding, poetic freedom, and creative acceptance.
“A Nook for Rhyme Crooks” will be a monthly event, featuring the artwork of a new upcoming artist, along with the all-original spoken word performances by the ink-slashing “Rhyme Crooks”. Please and come support this new movement organized by Red Room Organization, and prepare to be engulfed by the art of spoken word.
“A Nook for Rhyme Crooks” performance will be on May 25th, 2013 at 6:30 pm, at the prestigious Taipei Artist Village on Beiping E. Road. Stay tuned for more details…
第二個分享者 Jezebel 用個人獨特性格將活生生的將我們帶入她的內心現場，呈現出欲望、性與欲望。
中場休息，Infinity-Breakdance Crew 和 Space-Graffiti Artist 用嘻哈的方式來顯示它們快速歌唱方式來娛樂觀眾們，讓觀眾們開心感覺可以延續到下半場。
第四個角色 Music 用音樂代表著和諧與真愛和和平，帶給觀眾生動的氣息。
最後壓軸，藝術家 Steve Williams，透過他的畫，將四個角色特色，和揭露出自己的內心笑聲。透過旁白和中文英文表述方式，讓所有原來的節拍可以對仗起來，第一章節的韻詞家的角落活動就此結束。
同樣的環境，同樣高素質的藝術家在下一次樂章，韻詞者將會由我們這四位角色帶給大家 Antithesis, Lix, OzWonka, Mellow Junkie, Limpbizzie 和 Prosperus 表演，一起帶到舞台上。
韻家旮旯 (A Nook for Rhyme Crooks) 會每個月固定舉辦，請來參加支持這樣的行動，由紅房社群舉辦，來吞沒這些口語的力量的藝術。
下一次時間將會是 5/25 6:30pm，在台北國際藝術村，在北平東路上，敬請留意更多最新消息。
Reider shared an original song, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar:
Spiraling down to Earth.
I saw an angel
and an ancient
I tried to relate that
time is missing sand
The more I want to say…
The less I can.
The folly of a man.
Oh what to do?
A camera captures the moment
but in a moment,
can I captivate you?
The time’s upon us
It’s no elegant plan,
But as they say,
we might get carried away in lust
What’s so only?
And if we don’t do something,
Something else might happen
But what am I to say?
I don’t have the words,
I’ll make them up.
Because no matter what they would be
there are no words
Who am I to say
that it’s fate,
here that brought you.
That you and I could be
just a fling
or an I do.
Who am I to say,
if I do not know you.
What you and I could be.
So let’s take
There is a music box sitting in my bookshelf for more than 10 years.
It was a gift.
At age of seventeen, I went to Hokkaido with my family.
We were brave, because we don’t speak Japanese except me. I should say pronounce Japanese, sorry.
Otaru, that’s where I meet this Music Box.
HSNU, is where I meet her.
She is one year elder than me, long hair, attending English Conversation Club.
I didn’t learn English from her.
It was a weird time in my life, in this country, and the result is to make me a almost weird person.
But she is different, unlike most other girls who doesn’t talk to boys while scream for Backstreet boys, she does talk to boys, including me.
We played bridge few times, I tried to find chances to talk to her… And she is always friendly.
At Otaru, I thought about her, so I bought the music box, brought it back to Taiwan, to her classroom, to her classmates to deliver it to her, as a birthday gift.
Three days later, a boy showed up outside of my classroom, with the music box.
“I believe you know what this means”
Yes, a souvenir for myself, for the first time giving a gift to a girl.
