Odds and Ends Sunday

So I have a lot of work I need to do this weekend. That's why I'm up at the wee-hours of the night. Supposed to be working on my Atlanta contacts list for my Labor Day weekend trip. Gotta get folks to the two readings/signings I've got set up so far. If you know folks/groups I might want to contact, please hit me up on e-mail. Thanks.

I'm loving that Tweet song, Taxi. Old to most of you... new to me. Or, I should say, new to L.A. radio.

Hung out with my boys David and Eddie on Friday night. Circus. First time there in a ga-jillion years. Lots of fun. Too much fun. For you New Yorkers, Circus and Arena (next door to each other on Santa Monica Blvd.) are kinda like your Krash and Escuelita. Fun times.

So much so, that I overslept for the 2005 Black Men's Health Conference at USC. Supposed to be there at 8ish. Got there at 10ish. Working a table. It was cool. But if you know me, you know I hate to be late for anything. I'm always 20 minutes early for everything. Ask my boss. The Black Men's Health Conference was sponsored by the In The Meantime Men's Group. Great group. Great people. Great contacts. We've got a lot of work ahead of us in terms of making sure people know their health status. Scary numbers and statistics out there... especially when, as one presenter put it, some of the latest HIV/AIDS numbers of black men in the U.S. are starting to be on par with sub-Sahara Africa.

Back to work... but one more thing... What are you reading lately? I'm in between books now. Need some good fiction recommendations. Thanks.

I'm currently reading "The Era of My Youthful Ways" by Lori V. Lincoln...STILL! I haven't had time to finish it.

Also in the queue are Infants of the Spring by Wallace Thurman, Thugg the Barbarian King by Brent Dorian Carpenter, and Scrub Match by Bill Eisele. I will break out my straight fiction once I sell more copies of Lazarus and free up more space in my basement. Right now a lot of my books are packaed away.

Oh yeah, I also just finished this really good book called DOWN FOR WHATEVER. You might want to pick it up.
