The Irish storytelling DNA lives on
The Irish storytelling DNA lives on

Before there was the written word, we had only the spoken. Mankind has always had story tellers who became the cultural DNA of their societies. People have never really looked at it that way, but they should.
Why? Because even through the dark times, and the generation skipping ones when no one gave a hoot about the past, as times passed there were those with that DNA who emerged to carry forward what the others had not.
Even after the written word emerged with its new scribe class the ones the people cheered were those who delivered the spoken word as they brought that cultural DNA to life.
We are fortunate that the written work survives but the spoken word of the past has been lost to the ages…or has it?
The Internet some say is saturated with a gazillion ideas and opinions about everything imaginable, all of which theoretically have access to us if they have the cash and Google gives them the keys to our mental palaces.
We live in an information blur where absorption has become a challenge, similar to what the health folks say about vitamins and supplements…we take them in, but how much really sticks.

At Veterans Today we have been making our own contribution to having Intel DNA passed on so we don’t repeat mistakes of the past because no one even knows what the mistakes were. We have proved here and on Press TV that there is a huge audience for ‘dot connecting’ so they can focus their fighting back efforts better.

Snordster - An Irishman of course

 I am featuring a modern bard today who is making a unique contribution to passing on the magic of the spoken word and becoming a dot connector with his great talent…bringing the written word to life.
Snordster has a YouTube site with a million views, an audience built from combining his spoken and production talents with the fortunate writers upon whom he pleases to anoint with these blessings.
The result of what we call this in the media and PR business is leverage, or what military people call ‘force multiplier’. One and one is no longer two…but five, ten or twenty.
And if you don’t want to get lost in this Internet age of informational overload on the audience you need to have this mojo or your Internet career is a no go.
VT is always looking for emerging talent, and in this case a good bit beyond emerging. We are expecting to see a lot more innovative multimedia presentations from him, and will see if we might be able to do some things together.
I thought this new piece of his was perfect for a VT feature debut. Let me know what you think in the comments. We have come a long way from back when a group of Special Operations Officers started VT to have their own little gathering place to share stories. It eventually went public. Gordon Duff took over from them…and here we are today. Enjoy this is a full HD piece. I surely did.
