Blow My Mind

I slept instead of seeing THIS??!

Whoa: Dave Chappelle shows up in the middle of Portland in the middle of the night, attracting thousands.

Chappelle appeared in Pioneer Courthouse Square at 12:53 a.m. and tried to put on a show. The gathered crowd actually did what they could to help him put on the show.

Wow. Be sure to read the comments for more on-the-scene details.

Chappelle showed!

Added! Shawn Levy was kind enough to links to this video and that video of what happened.

Supporting people with links, Post the First: Caitlin R. Kiernan

I've been meaning to post links to good people who can use eyeballs and, if you're so moved, help/funds/good energy. Here's the first post:

Caitlin R. Kiernan, here on LJ as greygirlbeast, has her new novel The Red Tree due August 4th. She's marked this with a relaunch of her official website, Caitlin R. Kiernan Dot Com. The relaunch comes complete with enigmatic video, a different video every few days (the first one is still up as of now, and will be replaced with the second one sometime Thursday). You may wish to watch enigmatic. Soon there will also be Caitlin's first book trailer, something she and her partner Kathryn "humglum" Pollnac are producing themselves.

Meanwhile, I've already preordered my copy of The Red Tree from Powell's, plus a copy for my friend and fellow Caitlin fan Alicia.

(Maybe even support Caitlin another way: via her eBay page.)

More posts in a similar vein for other people, later. Like tomorrow.

P.S. These posts also, helpfully, will cover for me for a bit while I recover from feeling like a really boring blogger. Lately I've composed several possible blog posts in my head and deleted them from my head before ever even writing them because they seemed boring. This gives me time to get interesting again.

P.P.S. Why not follow Caitlin on Twitter? She's also interesting 140 characters at a time.
