journalWelcome to my online journal. I'm Alex Mead. For many years people called me AMPro --so much so that it seemed like my name. More recently, a lot of people on the internet have come to know me as green.earth.al and in show biz...My Rap Name is Alex. Whatever name I'm known by, I still seem to have the same opinions and convictions, I still like to write and make public my introspection and try to say something that will provoke some thoughts and help people see the world in new and helpful ways.
Reading From Humans
this journal entry posted on July.29.2004

So tonight I did a reading from my book, How to Care About Humans...

There was this thing, artists against W. Backtrack for a second. Okay, we got this radio station in Buffalo and we've been working our asses off to get progressive shows on in the mornings ( flyer that I made for the station ) and we have some good shows now and when the station was new we were not getting any callers so I had to get over my radio shyness and call up a lot of shows and try to ask good questions of the people being interviewed and what not. So then I heard an interview of the Artists against W guys and signed up to read.

So, I can't figure out how a year ago I was a guy who couldn't even record a message onto an answering machine, and now I can read anti Bush prose and poetry to 100+ people. I keep thinking maybe it was because I didn't have any time to get nervous, I had a Coalition for Progressive Media meeting to prepare for and then I had to hop on my bike and ride a few miles to get to the reading and then I had to go right on. But I dunno. I get this sneaking suspicion that I'm just not as nervous a person as I used to be.

(and there was even a video camera recording me which I somehow managed not to think about until just now. CRAZY!)
