Buchanan’s B’ham Show

Local print artist Charles Buchanan has another show at Naked Art. He’ll be at the gallery Friday, January 12th, 5pm-9pm and then again Saturday, January 13th, 1pm-6pm.

Birminghamsters… unite!

A local good soul has started a Birmingham, Alabama group over on LibraryThing. The potential is great. You should click over and check it out. I’ve already learned some local lore, just by clicking through to the B’ham based books list over on the BhamWiki.

Namath Naysayers

We talked about Joe Namath coming to town to sign books.

I can imagine famous people get tired of “having” to do “famous people stuff” and slum with all of us commoners. But there is no need to be a butt about it, ya know? I mean if you are so busy that you can’t sign a few extra books for fans who stood in line forever, then you really shouldn’t bother. Just ruins the whole thing.

Maybe it’s cause he’s not a real writer. He’s an athlete. So maybe that’s why his booksigning didn’t crank his tractor. I dunno.
