Stuff & Things...
Stuff and things to holla about:
First off, I'm not avoiding you.
I'm deep in planning for release parties, including what looks to be some killer events in the Bay, LA, and NYC. All the details are here. Also working on the mixtape with DJ D-Sharp and DJ Icewater. It's sick, a cross between Lemony Snicket and Kay Slay or something. Instead of details, right now, think these thoughts: Bronx Legends, and A Whole Lotta Quannum.
In more book news, wow! Fools is already jackin'. They ignore the bright red sticker on the thin little cover that says "ADVANCE UNCORRECTED PROOF" and are trying to sell it to you as a "Trade Paperback".
My people, hold on. The real deal--hardcover--ships in less than 1 week. Pre-order my thing now, please. I'm running out of diapers.
Just kidding. About the diapers. OK. No more begging.
+ Farai Chideya tears Armstrong Williams a new one. The lead alone should have Michael Powell and the FCC taking up small handguns.
+ Mark Anthony Neal on Lil Jon, his ugly cup and crunkface.
+ The Bay Guardian is hiring an associate arts editor. Contact Charlotte Harper or Kim Chun. All I will say is: Negotiate. You know, I...nah, that's all I'll say.
+ I said this before and I mean it: Eric Arnold is The King of The Yay.
+ Special Ed is back. Whoa!
+ Hip-hop journalists/scholars take note: Words, Beats, & Life looks like a really great magazine--really good thinking going into the themes. And they're soliciting! Topics on tap for the four issues coming in year 2: Golden Age of Rap, Kung Fu & Capoeira, DJs, Graf.
+ This Herman Chin-Loy :: Aquarius Rock on Pressure Sounds is incredible, and reminds me that I need to start doing some reviews on this blog. BTW all those ugly Internet rumors that my next book is about how the Chinese invented reggae are true. I have stunning evidence that they brought it to America with them in 1421.
+ Lastly, more Sticker Rock Shocking this week, Max Romeo revival style. For now, enjoy my comrades on the right-most coast.
