Daymon Day Basketball Tourney Match-Ups


As mentioned before, Daymon Day will be returning to Tuttle Park 9-19-09. For more info on Daymon Day, and its parade, please read 614 Magazine’s article on the event. 614 interviewed Envelope, Daymon’s mom Judy and myself for the article.

As for the Basketball portion of the event, CJ Townsend organized a basketblog tourney, in which Team Donewaiting (DJ True Skills, Aleks Shaulov,Andrew Patton, and myself) will compete with Weedsteeler, Agit Reader, Milk Bar, Embassy, Kings Rowe,Central City Recordings, and The Grip for a warm case of PBR.

The bball tourney will be from 12 to 5 at Tuttle Park, Saturday 9-19. The Daymon Day Parade is scheduled to start at Tuttle Park @ 8pm.

(the grudge match right now is between Weedsteeler and the Grip. Or perhaps Weedsteeler and itself)

Odd Harassment @ Gallery Hop

The brightest shining boutique in Columbus right now had a rather odd Gallery Hop. Two females showed up to the Black-owned store to throw chinese food, egg, punches, paint and racial slurs at the store and it’s diverse community. I guess not everyone loves Obama or the current Hip Hop culture in Columbus.
Read a first hand account from Steve Lieb. He runs a blog called the Grip and was on the recieving end of the animosty.
In the end the girls’ car was covered with the paint that they were going to use to vandalize the store. So it’s funny.
Not the worse thing that ever happened but still kind of suprising.
