"I am an idealistic, naive, passionate, truth-seeking, spiritually motivated artist, unschooled in the science of law and finance." --Wesley Snipes

Colin's a little confused. But who cares? He's, like, a rockstar.

It's like....Milton vs. Pope, man.

Colin Meloy in The Stranger:

"While your typical Poetry 101 workshop will churn out blank verse like crazy, I was writing really tightly metered, rhymed couplets," he says. "I've always loved using rhythm, meter, and rhyme in poetry. And, consequently, mine comes off as pretty naive."

Where are these blank verse workshops? Mike Snider?
