Poetry On The Job


Above is a great video of Bill Murray reading poetry to the construction workers on site during the building of Poets House, a poetry library/lounge near Battery Park.  This was shot last year during construction, and as of September 2009, the building is complete and Poets House is open to the public (I hear it has some great views of the Hudson River).  I’m assuming Bill Murray is a fan of poetry and a supporter of Poets House, which is why he took the time to not only read some poems to the workers on the job, but also acknowledge them and their work in the video.  This is completely random, but nevertheless a fun and interesting clip.  And since I’m a really big Bill Murray fan, and in the last two weeks watched both What About Bob? (one of both my wife and my Dad’s favorite movies) and Groundhog Day (seriously, watch this asap it’s soooo slept on), stumbling onto this video just made my morning.  Enjoy.
