Are You Ready, Metro Detroit?
Sunday October 24, 2010 at 2PM — It’s time for the official Impossibly Funky book release party! The Burton Theater in Detroit will host the event which will consist of signing copies of the book and a screening of Greydon Clark’s seminal Black Shampoo — one of the greatest films of all time, and a feature film featured in Impossibly Funky. Come see what all the fuss is about!

Looking For Advice
Do you know much about Madison, WI? Milwaukee, WI? Boston, MA? New York, NY? Connecticut? I’m looking to set up some more book tour stops in 2010 and 2011. I’ve gotten a couple of leads but would love to hear about more hip bookstores and/or film societies/venues.
