Afro Punk 2008.. u mad, Scooby?

for those in the know, ive been working on this huge event this summer called Afro Punk. Afro Punk, in so many words, is a "Lallapalooza" & "Sundance Film Festival" for African Americans to showcase their talent. i was actually asked to premier Minority Report there last summer, but due to conflicting schedules- it never went down. in steps 2008. I get the call they want me to cordinate the skateboard portion of the event this year. that entails getting the riders, ramps, promotional product, and safety equipment for the week long festival. i figured it would be a cake walk. listen people. if you've never put an event of this stature together, dont knock what it takes. its personally cost me 2 managers, numerous phone calls, random trips, and Lawd knows what elseand im not even done yet. but in the end, its gonna be worth it. a week in New York City, skating and hanging out with all my friends. Seeing and meeting everyone from Spike Lee to Janelle Monae, to BoneCrusher. Shyt. Even Murs just joined the line-up. so as i said, this is gonna be worth it in the end. so here we go. heres the flyer that went out last week(its being revised, as you read this)

i know. i know. the negatives backward, and some names are wrong. they(the skaters named) WERE to go. no hard feelings, though. some things just took too long from my end to confirm. but. just when some folks started leaning back. in steps, [Frank]"My maaan..[Lucas]- Kevin Taylor. yup.
