Harlem Book Fair 2004
I'm bringing $200 to spend on books just this one day. Here are the details:
The Annual Book Fair will take place Saturday, July 24, 2004. This, the largest book fair of its kind, is expected to draw more than 40,000 New Yorkers and visitors to West 135th Street (between Fifth Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevards in Harlem), from 12 PM to 6 PM. Over 250 booths will be set up along West 135th Street, offering books, story-telling, readings, and opportunities to meet and greet authors on four stages that will feature spoken word poets, celebrities, and music throughout the day.
I may even volunteer. To join me, contact Brook Stephenson at (718) 604-8199, or electronically sign up for a volunteer spot.
I'll donate something to him as soon as I can, which will probably be next paycheck. It would be cool though if he decided to have a real rent party. I would cook something for it and pay the door price.
Morgan Spurlock Sucks
The science behind the "smoking kills millions" talk is pretty shaky. So are the facts powering the oncoming anit-fast food movement.
Morgan Spurlock is smartly riding the wave before it hits. He's the guy who ate all that McDonalds to prove how harmful it is to the body and made a movie about it. Critics have raved about the film, but Byron Crawford isn't buying the hype. He says (and I agree):
"people like this Morgan Spurlock fellow, PETA, NARAL and the rest of these fruits make the left in this country seem like a buncha homos. Rather than, say make a film where he hunts and kills John Ashcroft, he makes a film that attacks McDonalds, which is mostly consumed by poor people and, most importantly, tastes fantastic."
Soso Whaley is doing the same experiment and she's losing weight. So what's the real deal?

My new site, Hip Hop Blogs is up. I'm excited, but I'm not. Diesel Nation will change and become more personal. I'll explain more later, ya'll.
