Ladies and Gents,
After months of delays and annoyances - UPS can learn something from the Jehovah's Witnesses about ringing the f*ckin' doorbell when delivering a book proof - I'm finally on the ball with my forthcoming book (Root for the Villain: Rap, Bullshit, and a Celebration of Failure).
The first chapter leak deals with the “Gadget Ho”. You know who he / she is, don't you? If you find yourself in a social setting and someone around you just can't seem to stop texting, “LOL”ing, and emoticon-ing their way through the night; they're a Gadget Ho. I guess appearing interesting and disinterested at the same time is the new muscle shirt / mini-skirt. The traditional Gadget Ho has some cousins as well: The egregious behaviors of the “Huddle Ho”, “Cosmo Ho”, “Flash Ho” are discussed in detail. Additionally, I examine the behaviors of the Gadget Ho that enjoys going at level 2 on the treadmill while texting (thus getting zero results after belonging to a gym for umpteen years) and the absolute worst offender in the Holiday Gadget Ho (he / she who sends disingenuous, holiday-related mass texts and runs up my phone bill). And to all of you overzealous promoter guys looking to promote your hip-hop events via incessant mass texting - you're Gadget Hoes as well. Lose my f*ckin' phone number.

Stodgy folks will probably find this excerpt crass and slightly offensive (as are 95% of the things I say and do). But if you're on this e-mail list, it means I believe you don't have a stick in your ass and just may have a sense of humor after all.
I've also attached the front and back covers of my book to this e-mail. Get a glimpse of the artwork and read what The Lonely Island / Saturday Night Live crew (Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer), Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Black Keys, Beck, Gorillaz), Prince Paul (De La Soul, Handsome Boy Modeling School), Chairman Mao (Ego Trip, XXL Magazine), Phillip Mlynar (Village Voice), and Dante Ross have to say about me and / or my book.
Release date will likely be 11/15/11 (self-publishing is not always an exact science). Root for the Villain will also be available as an e-book and a limited edition cassette tape-only audio book (not a joke). That means if you don't have a Walkman, an old car, or a boom box, you'll just have to read the thing.
More details and previews next week. For more info on the book, visit my website at www.govillaingo.com
