Missed Aches by Joanna Priestley

Portland-based Joanna Priestley‘s new short Missed Aches is destined to become popular in English classes across the world. A cheeky Symphony in Slang for the new century, it’s based on the poem “The The Impotence of Proofreading” by Taylor Mali, who wrote and narrated the film.

    That was a lot of fun! I was glued to the screen at every moment. We need more stuff like this. But with such imagery (that I have no problem with), will it actually be “destined to become popular in English classes across the world?”

    Ha ha! Awesome! I know some people who need to see this…
    And, ah, hey Amid – might wanna put an NSFW tag on this one. I have no problem with it, but I just watched it at work, and…let’s just say I’m thankful my boss isn’t here. XD
