Wax Poetics #30, "Back in Black" (interview with VC Veasey of Black Merda).
Made a decent splash on DIGG with my Detox "prequel" piece (also did similar pieces on Q-Tip's The Renaissance and Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II).
Several nice weddings for several nice couples.
Donated the aforementioned mix for my friend's Obama fundraiser (which you should not feel shy about supporting).
Landed a gig DJ'g Park Slope's best cat-themed, bloodbath of a monthly dance party aptly named "Cheryl." Hope to see you every third Thursday at Royale.
And wrote some other stuff that I've lost track of.
And the wild part? There's still more to come:
* Another installment of my Call & Response column for PopMatters about Obama and the myth of the hip-hop Achilles Heel (should post the week of October 27);
* Playing the role of "Music is included" at MoMA's Free Teen Nights on October 31;
* And DJ'g an upcoming PopRally event.
