hey fam. it feels like days since i've sent out an email blast or blog. actually, it has been. (i think it's too late to post my opinion about the erykah badu concert at wingate. i'm pretty sure it's been covered too death. needless to say, i loved it.)
blame my job, which is a nexus of bureaucratic bullshit and non-profit scrambling. of course i could've done it from home but i prefer to reverse telecommute. it breaks up the monotony and helps me get through the day without going postal. i guess it helps that i'm the supervisor. anyway, since the tech at my job is cooperating today, i resumed my normal routine, browse my fave blog sites while drinking some bustelo. imagine my surprise when i stumbled across the rock the block event coming up this weekend. as most of you know that while i love brooklyn, i am a transplant. not from out of state - i'm from queens, the other end of linden blvd. anyway, i'm really looking forward to this event. it's being touted as a showcase for the emerging brooklyn renaissance.
also in brooklyn, ailey II will be performing at the prospect park bandshell on thursday, 8/7 at 8pm. i wanted to check that out because they are also offering free dance clasess before the performance but i may have to miss this because there will be a prince/stevie wonder tribute concert at marcus garvey park uptown from 7 to 8:30pm. the jungle brothers performed last night out in red hook but i still remember "straight outta brooklyn" so i didn't go, lol. did anyone go? what else is going on in nyc this week?
