Where in the World is Paradigm?

Okay Paradigm Fans and Supporters:
It's been a month since my last update, so there is lots to catch up on. I'll just give you the highlights.

Right now, go and check out Yours Truly is one of the featured poets. This issue is edited by my friend, Emmanuel Xavier and he's done a gosh darn good job of picking some fine poets. Check it, check it, check it out!

So, I had some shows and that was all good. Last month, I got to go back to Toronto, where I last was for the Pick Up the Mic world premier at the Toronto Film Festival in 2005. This time I went for Toronto Pride and performed for my largest crowd yet, I think there were 300-400 people and it was exhilarating! Johnny Dangerous, DDC and Cazwell were there and I got to some lovely time with a new artist-friend, Belladonna and The Awakening. Here's me with Belladonna and the band before the show.
I also got my own dressing room with my name on it. Granted it was on a piece of lined paper that was torn down to make room for another guest, but still...I signed my first autograph, at least I think it was my first. Look Ma! I'm a star!!!!

I got to stay at two fly hotels: The Gladstone and The Drake

This was my room at The Gladstone. Sometimes touring can be so Sweet.

Saturday night's show offered it's own set of excitement for me. The two highlights were being the headline of CKLN's show, the second, was doing a rendition of "Wade in the Water," that featured Tim'm T. West and Solis of DDC. It was FIRE! That's Tim in the back. Solis, I'll get one of you too!

Loads of other things happened, but i was lazy and didn't blog. The best part was my interview on MTV. Canadian MTV, but still MTV.

Click here to watch, go to the left and scroll down to the Video that has Princes Harry and William as the topic , i be there in the Queer Culture mets Hip Hop article. SUPAH-STAHHHHHHHH!

Don't forget, Peace Out East submissions close at the end of the month, so if you want to perform, sumbit now.
