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.
What's Alex been up to?
this journal entry posted on May.22.2006


I'm Alex. Author, artist, rapper, performance poet, web designer,
friendly neighborhood organizer and the like. Which are all basically
just synonyms for storyteller. I'm a storyteller for peace through justice
let's say.

So in the last couple years I've written these two books. Really good
books that everyone should read. I promoted the first one,
Relations: McEmpire, pretty heavily when it first came out. I intended
to do the same for the second one, Relations: SMASH YOUR TV!, when
it came out, but I got really busy being a rapper, artist, webmaster, etc.
So I'm about to just start over again with the promotion. Try to let the
world know that there are these two awesome books out there that
people should read.

Wanna hear something funny? Kinda ironically funny. I wrote these
two awesome books about how the world is quickly going crazy and getting
out of hand and making us all way too busy and too broke and very isolated.
And THEN... everyone's been too broke to buy them, and those that've bought
them have been too busy to read them, and those that've read them have
been too isolated to tell me what they've though of them. Yeah, maybe that
isn't actually all that funny.

So here's what I'm trying to do about it, presently. I'm setting aside
a bunch of my time at the new Wellness Co-op on 640 Breckenridge
(very near to Elmwood) on Sunday afternoons (starting May 28th at
1:30 pm) to actually read these books to you. For free. And, hopefully,
talk about them with you. It'll be a fun time. I'm picturing bringing all the
soft stuff we can find and throwing it all on the floor and laying around
and reconnecting as human beings as we listen to these engrossing novels
read by the author in the most soothing voice I can summon. And eat
snacks probably. Eating and reading go well together. Bring snacks.

If you feel inclined to buy my book after hearing some... that'd be
mighty cool too. If you don't want to attend our lovely read-in and just
want to buy my books to read when you can, you can do that on my
website. Which is AMProSoft.com


Can't get enough Alex? I'll be busy as all get out in the coming
weeks, so check some of this stuff out. It'll be fun!
