Make sure that you have sound. I love this video. It just makes me smile. In the tragic sadness of everyday living, there is an enormous amount of beauty to be found and shared. Thank you, Matt, for reminding me, us, about this simple truth.

This video is very upsetting. My friend turned it on to me, and I was left extremely troubled and saddened. If you get a chance to look it up on YouTube, please look at the comments that follow this video. I am not sure what disappoints me more: the obvious barbarism of the video, the sadness of our inhumanity towards one another, the zebra mentality of onlookers, or some of the comments I read below the video based on fear and ignorance. I am disgusted by the actions of the two violent individuals in the video, not only as a black man, bat as a citizen of humanity. The perpetrators' reactions are despicable, in spite of race, but no more so than the comments of hatred and nescience that I read following the video.
We have such a long way to grow. We are still infants in our existence. I am bent by it all; and yet, I am not broken. I am hope, and I have hope. I would love to read your comments and reactions, my friends.

Other good news. I've been writing a lot for my book lately. Unfortunately, this means that I haven't been posting a lot. I want to post stuff, but then what would be the point for you to buy my book. You may laugh now. Seriously. Laugh.
Well, I will give you some teasers soon, but the juiciest parts will have to wait for the book itself. I wouldn't want people to stop booking me because I revealed the ancient secrets of Tykan Chi. Look it up.
By the way, if you are having trouble finding Tykan Chi it's because I made it up. See? I have a lot of juicy things to share with you, and it will be up to you to figure out if they are lies or just plain truths. Good luck on deciphering my ramblings.
Live long and prosper.
