Yeah, my eyes got big over that, too, 'Fish. However, the Chick Ball planners invited Cups to participate, and they're deep into renovations right now, which is understandable. And, it seems, Starbucks offered, and being that this is for a good cause, I see no reason to say no. I still prefer my coffee local, for the record, but we appreciate their support for the cause of fighting domestic violence.

NOW I do have ONE question. Where is Kaze in all this? Here is his chance to step up and show how rappers support a good cause like this and help try to change the perception people have of rappers. Where is he? This is a local festival of sorts with a diverse group of LOCAL bands. I seem to remember someone last week raising hell about festivals/events that didn't have local bands in them and how local bands need alot more exposure and support from the local community. Yet, a well known rapper is not playing in this even. What gives? Inquiring minds want to know.

Well, our line-up is all women artists. But, hopefully, Kaze will do everything he can to get his fans out to speak out against abuse of women and misogyny.

We're good, 'Fish. Today is the day that he finishs his current book (about Web 2.0), so THAT is great news. ;-) Have a great day!

An iTodd book on Web 2.0? Great! When does it hit the marketplace? It will be called 'iTodd's iWeb 2.0' right?

Lucdix: The book's name is a mouthful -- it's called "How To Do Everything with Your Web 2.0 Blog." There's an Amazon link to the book over at my blog, iTodd Central (seriously...y'all have inspired me to "take back" the iTodd moniker). I've been having fun over there this weekend getting some "Diggs" for a quick entry I wrote about Apple. Check it out. ;-)
