Pa(l)infully Funny

Wow. Build the Hill was great last weekend! Thanks everybody! There were three days of activities but some of the reporters were particularly interested in the unsung heroes and sheroes in the Community. Here's one article. Odd sort of twist, eh? Will follow up soon.

In the meantime, I get to get some laughs in, as the economy tanks:

Here's the latest Tina Fey impression of Sarah Palin.
It's a parody of the latest interview Palin did with Katie Couric.

This is so funny, it's sad.

I'll be doing mine this Thursday at the Obama Fundraiser.

Build the Hill This Weekend!

Hey Folks,

Last weekend, I opened for The Last Poets. Love them, love them, love them and excellent job, Kente Arts Alliance!
I also unveiled my Sarah Palin character and that's about the only time she'll be a hit in my world.

This weekend . . . Build the Hill! September 26-28, 2008!

We had the Kickoff in May and now it's time for the Conference, itself! (not hyperlinking so you can memorize it and tell everybody else)

I'm so excited! We have a lot of registrants and have exceeded our expected numbers! We have lots of volunteers!

A youth talent showcase on Friday . . . at Margaret Milliones University Prep School, 3117 Centre Ave. at Ewart St.

On Saturday, same place, the Conference filled with a Recognition Breakfast (get up!) information, activities and fun for adults and youth, alike (youth have their own track), and then later that night (8:30pm), an OUTDOOR film screening of Chris Ivey's "East of Liberty Chapter 2: The Fear of Us" at Ozanam Basketball Court, 1833 Wylie Avenue at Sweeney Way.

On Sunday, at the Legacy Apartments (2121 Centre Ave), we have the Crown Contest and Bake-Off, where we get to see who's the biggest and the baddest baker and hat-wearer in the Hill.

Y'all better be lucky I'm not allowed to enter because my banana pudding is lethal! However, one of our contestants has written in, "I bake a mean chocolate mousse cake". Yummy! We'll discuss issues, record oral narratives of the Hill from Seniors and then wrap up the Conference.

Check the website for all of the details, speakers, etc. It's going to be quite lovely.

We are out of space for vendors!

We are almost out of space for registrants!

If you're bringing kids, PLEASE register for yourself and them here:

Any questions? Call our toll-free number and someone will get back to you: 1-877-277-9066

Check out the flyers! See you there!

Will Sarah Palin Be the Grandmother of a Black Child?

Okay, I don't know how valid any of these rumors are; but this person is speaking on camera, in the first person and telling his story. According to this video, a young Black man is claiming to be the father of Bristol Palin's child and wants to be a part of the child's life and is being told to "stay away" because he's Black and because of Palin's career.

If any part of this is true, John McCain and Sarah Palin will need to look for alternative employment this November.

Click here to watch the video.

Let me know what you think.
