Haiti New Year

Apologies, I haven’t posted in what seems like forever.

It’s been a long time, and I shouldn’t have left you. But it’s 2010, the year of organization [and relocation for that matter] so it is what it is. I’ve been sacrificing, and the last time I went this long without seeing my wife, she was my girlfriend and I wrote this.

I’ve been offline busy, but still took out some time to drop a worthwhile post on the mothership by way of the 54. Also, whenever Matt will let me in the lab again, I’ll offer my second podcast broadcast. [Ya’ll slept on the first one, but I’m not angry — only a little disappointed.]

Also, Bavu’s Revue on KAZI is suspended until I step my technology game up further notice, but it’ll be back soon unless God says different.

The Black Jacobins ogcover

Alot of crap on the internet just feels meaningless in comparison to what’s going on in Haiti. I saw the movie Avatar, and it was good. But for some reason I preferred Inglourious Basterds. Maybe it’s because I watched the non-3D version of Avatar in a huge theater with only three people in it, or maybe Tarantino and company are just better writers than whoever wrote Avatar.

So back to Haiti. Combat Jack blogged about it, Pushermat tweeted it and now I feel obliged to turn you on to a concise history of Haiti by The Nation and a feature on Haiti losing its stadium status homegrown hip hop star. It all reminds me of the time I tried to read The Black Jacobins, but was too young to finish that giant book. Maybe this year, who knows…

At least now I’m grown enough to send 10% of my checking account to Haiti.
