First, the details. It turned out he had scheduled a shootaround with members of the Timberwolves at midnight. The Target Center opened its doors at 11 p.m., and the first 1,000 fans with either a ticket to last night’s Timberwolves game or a ticket to any of Chappelle’s 12 comedy shows in Minnesota this week got free entry into the event, which was briefly known as #PancakesWithDave on Twitter.
It seemed like a fun time for those who was there, jealous and envy for those who weren’t, and for all that’s happened (and not happened) with his career since he walked away from The Chappelle Show, it’s cool to see Dave on the road again, doing what he enjoys, and even finding some time to get up close and personal with some of his fans.
I’ll be using the end of each post to tell you about a book project that I’m very close to finishing. I figure if you read all the way to the bottom of these posts, this will probably interest you.
It’s a book featuring my writing and original illustrations from a bunch of really talented artists. You can see some sample layouts here (Kobe, Barry Bonds, Dennis Rodman). I will be setting up a Kickstarter soon to recoup some of the print and shipping costs, an early estimate of the book will be $20. It’s going to be an entirely non-profit project for me, which my parents will be sad to hear about considering I hold a business degree.
All of this to say, please subscribe to the mailing list by clicking here if this sounds like something you’d be interested in, it’d help me gauge the interest of the project.
