But Buy My Memoir First...

More

Occasionally, I have to promote myself, so here we go. I wrote a book about my life in West Baltimore. Came out about a year ago. In said book, I tried to write pretty, and at some points, succeeded. If you like the pop culture mix of this blog--NFL, D&D, music--then this book is for you. If you don't like any of those things, this book is still for you. It's that awesome.

Don't believe me? Check out this handy trailer. Sorry, no Eddie Murphy. Lotsa Paul Coates, though...OK, so maybe Eddie after the jump...
