Spell Check in the Twilight Zone

Funny side note. This "blog," hosted by none other than "blogger.com" and "blogspot.com" has a spell check function you can use to check your posts before you publish them. Why was the only word marked as not recognized or possibly misspelled in my first post the word ...

you guessed it: "blog."

What a world.

Dazed and Confused in Dallas

I'm in Dallas. Texas.

What the hell am i doing here? How is it that my brain didn't process the reality of Bush, the electric chair, rednecks, disproportionate incarceration, and everything else in this bigger-than-life state?

Don't get me wrong (and don't get me to lying); i haven't seen anything other than the airport and the drive to the hotel. Oh, and one little nearby vegetarian restaurant by the name of Cosmic Cafe. The food was wonderful. The conversations and other goings-on going on around us apparently were not. (I tend to tune shit out when there's too much going on ... like ravenous hunger.) The bottom line is that i don't know anything much about Texas other than what i saw on the drive to the hotel. Which, since it was pitch black, wasn't much.

It's just the thought of it.


PS: The real reason i'm here is to attend a training to implement Many Men, Many Voices as an HIV prevention workshop for Black Gay Men. So i ain't complaining, really.

Welcome to Me!

It's a new blog for me, ever since Earthlink realized they hadn't billed me for my old brothalove.com site in over two years. Ah well, they're slow, but they caught on. Of course, i had spent several months trying to find out when they were going to bill me. I sent inquiry after inquiry and they never did send any reply. So after a while i figured it was their loss and they'd contact me. Boy, did they ever reach out and touch.

No matter, that's not what this blog is about. Actually, i'm not sure what this blog is about or why i decided to start another one. Next month, my new and improved site www.brothaloveimages.com will launch. And that should take up more than enough of my time.

We'll see ....
