Getting Back To Work, Part 1

November 27, 2008

Sorry it's been so long! Been busy with various things behind the scenes (hopefully can be more specific soon), and still don't have time to make a proper video just yet, but I gotta get some thoughts down about the Big Moment. I had more to say but couldn't fit it in, will try and do a part 2 over the weekend, and then get back to work for real next week.

(All thoughts and love to Mumbai)

My Yay Area Tour

November 14, 2008

Yes, yes, I know I haven't done a "real" video about Obama getting elected. I'm busy this week on a trip to San Francisco, where I am receiving an award for being famous on the internet. I'll be back to work next week, but in the meantime, behold my internet celebrity coronation!

Peace to all the many many cool people I met here yesterday! I don't have time to do an 80's rap album style list of shoutouts because I'm trying to work in 6 or 7 Bay Area meals today and it's almost time for elevensies.

I also really wish I had time to do a video on the Prop 8 situation while I'm here, but will def try to swing by one of the nationwide protests tomorrow.

(And BTW, I'm not really into this type of competition but if you want to relive the thrill of casting a vote for a slightly nerdy mixed/black guy, I'm competing against Diddy and Soulja Boy in the Online Hip-Hop Awards, and also this very cool international award.)

Election Night in Harlem

November 6, 2008

A snapshot of my Harlem, my hometown, on the night Barack Obama was elected. I don't have any words yet, you're gonna have to give me a minute.
