This is always a punt of sorts. To do a freestyle instead of a song. But, I feel like my relative consistency has bought me at least some goodwill, right? Plus, I think the freestyle feature keeps things interesting, and people seem to like it for the novelty. It’s just one more variation on this experiment in song-blogging. Freestyling the news stories of the day elevates an already contemporaneous exercise into one of almost pure spontaneity.
As always, a freestyle is an unwritten, unrehearsed rap. Entirely extemporaneous. [I have previously and briefly recognized some of the confusion over the etymology of the word “freestyle,” here, and won’t do it again, now.]
I logged on to CNN.com, noted the time, and then freestyled the headlines. A verbal screenshot. Not written. Not premeditated. For better, but mostly worse, spontaneous.
