I got sick this week, and was thus robbed of the motivation to write something. I’ve got a bunch of ideas clogging up the ol’ brain-bin, which SUCKS because I also have a lot of stuff to get done this month. Here’s where you can catch me over the next week:
Thursday, January 10th
Playing a solo gig at the Sunset Grill (Yew @ York st. in Kitsilano)
Friday, January 11th
My first gig of 2013 with Even Handed Odds at the Coppertank (Broadway @ Balaclava in Kitsilano). We’re celebrating our anniversary as their house band, and our first time playing together since mid-December.
Saturday, January 12th
I’ll be in Kamloops, BC, giving a talk about the HPV Vaccine and confronting some of the info and misinfo that’s out there. It’s pitched for a general audience, and will reference the scientific literature without diving into it too heavily.
Sunday, January 13th
I’ll be in Kelowna, BC, giving an extended version of my talk looking at racism in the zombie apocalypse. I felt really rushed trying to cram all that information into 30 minutes, so this longer format (I have two hours, I am planning on talking for the heavy side of 45 minutes, with a Q&A afterward) will be a lot more comfortable for me.
And now for the movie!
Hari Kondabolu is a recent discovery for me, but the man is hilarious. Here, he riffs on the lack of Indian Americans in show business and pop culture. He’s definitely a worthwhile follow on Twitter too.
I’m not sure WHEN I’m going to find time to do the kind of writing that I want to be doing right now, but you’ll likely get it in dribs and drabs as I can find the energy.
