Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Word-a-Week is dead. Long live Word-a-Week. Wordmeister Aaron Poole did it his way and he sends this feature off into the sunset in style. Granted, as you will see, he spent an entire month of Need Coffee video podcasting budget on this episode, so we'll need to talk to him about that. But regardless. For the final time: accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron on his blog at aaronfever.com for additional doses of his legendary shenanigans.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

As Word-a-Week draws to a close, the hope is that the vocabulary receptacles in your mind have been stretched sufficiently to allow you to replenish your hopefully whetted appetite for new words...and to do this on your own. But if that's not the case, start doing it now and avoid the rush. Seek out rarely used words. Search for arcane bits of language. Impress the few friends you have who care about such things. This is your second to last chance to...accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he gnaws the tasty snack of knowledge, using the stomach acid of language to avoid the indigestion of ignorance.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

The reason that wordsmiths like Aaron Poole can freestyle and not come off sounding like a maroon is because they have a good verbal foundation to work from. You have to learn the basics before you can start form improvised sentences at the drop of a hat. And this can come in handy when you're trying to land a job, find a mate, or convince those armadillos not to carjack you. We don't want to overemphasize the importance of the work Aaron is doing here, but it could, quite frankly, save your life. The press is eager to report words that kill, but never how many times words have been used to ward off danger. Don't become a statistic, in other words. To avoid this: accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he remixes the terrible pop song of ignorance into the dance-able, listenable hit of knowledge...using the probably-designed-to-run-on-a-Mac software that is Language.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Gene Wilder had a series--briefly--called Something Wilder. One of the most important quotes you will ever hear resulted from this show: "The problem with bad taste is that you can't explain it to someone who has it." So that's why having bad taste in word choice must be self-diagnosed. Not even Wordmeister Aaron Poole can do that for you. What he can do--and continues to do--is draw your attention to words that you can use...and he does this by any means necessary. So look deep within yourself and expand your arsenal of verbiage. Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he teaches the capuchin monkey of ignorance how to gain the grapes of knowledge...using the experimental monkey coinage that is Language.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Not since Schoolhouse Rock has there been such rocking involving the English language. Such is the might of Aaron Poole. He is the only Wordsmith to have achieved such a level of knowledge that he is also referred to as Wordjones and in South America they refer to him as "Wordgutiérrez," or sometimes ""Ese irlandés flaco que define las palabras." Regardless of what you call him, he is your guardo camino when it comes to giving you the words you need so you can file them away for that crucial moment--that moment when you can break them out and use them to wow a potential mate. Because we all know that's what language is for. So Get In There! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he evolves the monkey of ignorance into the tool-using bone-smashing mammal of knowledge...using the monolith that is Language.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Language is power. Granted, power is also power. But in this case, for the sake of argument, language is power. And if you have a solid mastery of the language, you can harness that power and bend it to your will. Not in a ha-ha flying monkeys sort of way, but more in a pre-Parallax-silliness Hal Jordan kind of way. And if there's a language equivalent of a tiny blue guy with white hair who floats around and talks funny...it's Aaron Poole, Guardian of Verbiage. Recharge your vocabulary with his battery of linguistic power! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you're trying to stick a random word into a password, thinking that will make it more secure! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he re-edits the Ryan Reynolds comic book adaptation of ignorance into the watchable film of knowledge...with the editing suite that is language.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

We've all had to try and make the best of a bad situation. And sometimes you have to take whatever kind of edge you can lay hands upon. In some cases, you might just need to be satisfied with the fact that you not only know how screwed you are but you can express it fully and intelligently. So yes, even when something important is broken, it's good to have some words at your disposal. And we just so happen to know a man who's in the business of word delivery. Without further ado, it's Aaron Poole! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you're trying to give your Siri a run for her/its money! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he slaloms down the slope of ignorance using the skis of knowledge, all while restricting heat loss via the skull with the toboggan of language.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Sometimes you can feel in a conversation like you can't escape. Like you've got no way out. Even like you're tied to a chair. It's in moments such as these that we need someone to step in and alleviate our lack of verbiage. So consider Aaron Poole your linguistic knight in shining armor. Or, at the very least, a dude with a decent pocket knife. So when those times arise that you're feeling bound up and in need of a hand, call upon Aaron! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you're trying to choose a way to make your bathroom wall graffiti a little more elegant! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he uses the toothpick from the Swiss Army knife of language to dislodge the food fragment of ignorance from the dental work of knowledge!

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Words are like alcohol. Think of the words you use everyday as your regular, workaday ale or glass of wine. And there's nothing wrong with that--it's comforting, in fact. However, every once in a while, it's time for something special: a vintage whiskey or a top shelf cocktail. Think of Aaron Poole as your bartender of verbiage. He can pull one of those Cocktail flip-things and have a nice chilled glass of new vocabulary in your hand faster than you can say Yakov Smirnoff. So get Aaron to pour you on a double on the rocks! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you're trying to describe to the jury why you wound up in that abandoned warehouse! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he refills your tumbler of knowledge from the pour spout of language to slake the thirst of ignorance!

Are you in the dark when it comes to language? There's no shame in that. However, rather than fumble for the proverbial light switch in such a situation, then wind up tripping over the proverbial Lego model of the Parthenon and bust your proverbial ass...instead we suggest to let Aaron Poole pop the glowstick of awareness in the middle of your brain. Yes, you have them in your amygdala. That is SCIENCE FACT. Anyway, that glowstick--that Re-Animator reference waiting to happen--is filled with words. And they will light your way to freedom. Or the bathroom. Whichever you need most at three in the morning. But regardless: Aaron is here! To treat your skull pan like a rave! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you're trying to find a rhyme for "fibrous"! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We hope you will join Aaron as he works the two turntables of knowledge to remix your ignorance using the Korg Kaoss Pad 3...of Language.
