Lots happening in the world right now. The Atlanta Hawks look like a top-4 Eastern Conference team with only four good players. Jamal Crawford looks like an all-star. Ziller reports that the Kings tonight will be starting Mikki Moore, Brad Miller, AND Jason Thompson.
And yes, we're still basking in the glow of the book. I want to thank the countless people who have given positive comments on the web today. I also found it appropriate that our first Amazon comment was by someone named J. Williams (Jay? Jayson? Jason?). Promises that all of this will end at some point and we will get back to strictly business, but for now it's still serious. We're promoting a movement. If you check the Freedarko book page, you will see that we are hitting the ground on the East Coast in early December for a slew of readings. Our West Coast and Midwest offices, however, are going to celebrate sooner.
First, Brown Recluse, Esq. & I (Dr. LIC) will be hosting the official Chicago FD Book Blast THIS THURSDAY at 7PM at
2207 N. Clybourn Ave.
We're gonna have some sort of room to ourselves, but this is by no means a private event. Come out, drink a lot with us, the TNT games will be on plasma-screens, we're gonna hopefully have books for sale, and we're going to stage some sort of Lion's Club-esque tribal/communal reading where we Xerox a bunch of copies of the FD Manifesto and have you read along with the Recluse and me, call and response style.
Also, the pizza at this spot is no joke:
THOSE EDGES ARENT BURNT--THATS CARAMELIZATION!!!!
Then, next Wednesday, November 19, Bethlehem Shoals will be holding it down for the entire Northwest coast at our Seattle event. He and Sports Northwest cordially invite you to an evening of basketball, drinking, and buying the book if you haven't already. There will be special guests, seventeenth-century relics, and a fun viewing menu of Mavs @ Rockets and Derrick Rose @ Portland. Also, you can watch Shoals try and figure out what the autograph of a fake name looks like.
Venue/time is as follows:
514 E. Howell Street
5 p.m. till
As usual, email freedarko (at) gmail (dot) com with any info, and try to bring everyone you can to these events.
