weekend starts in T-Minus….

I am looking forward to this weekend perhaps I will get some writing and reading done….i have been a little preoccupied lately…”that’s all i have to say about that” (in my best best Forrest Gump voice)…

Being that I have book buying problem that mean that I have a ton of goodies to get in too this weekend, here’s a sample:

Don’t Deny My Name : Words and Music and the Black Intellectual Tradition By Lorenzo ThomasDon't Deny My Name

Alpha Zulu by Gary Copeland LilleyAlpha Zulu by Gary Copeland Lilley

and I want to start chipping away at Hoodoo Voodoo by D.S. Marriott. Hoodoo Voodoo by D.S. Marriott

I know you are not supposed to judge books by their covers, but the Jacob Lawrence (Television) on Lilley’s collection and the Wangechi Mutu (Uterine Catarrh) on Marriott’s collection definitely caught my attention.

On a non-literary note, i hope to check out the Martin Puryear joint at the NGA…and check out some good cook outs and partying…I love long weekends in the summer
