"Bignick's Making Friends With Black People: The Post & Testimonial"
Thu Feb-23-06 12:45 PM by Frank Longo

  

          

You know him as the unfunny curmudgeon who ruins your American Idol watching by reminding you how bad they are. But in his time not spent lamenting my effect of the Wake hoop (note the lack of s) team and being right, Okayplayer's own Nick Adams found time to write a book.

A book that's now available in the front of my local Borders, right next to Ang Nissel's book.

A book at the front of Borders that I tore through last night, reading roughly 2/3 of it in four hours and nearly splitting my gut into tiny little pieces. Now, this may tell you that it's not a literary masterpiece like "Soul of a Black Chef," but it is insanely hilarious.

A book that needs better editing, specifically in its paragraphing, but who fucking cares.

Yes, this is me riding (hit the email list, nick) for my boy, but it's more than that. I just told him that I was worried it would suck, but it doesn't even live in the same solar system as suck. Nick killed it. Everyone should pick this book up. You'll laugh, you'll learn, and you'll further okp's plan of world domination.

More to come when I actually have the book in front of me.

This will be (insert newly popular rapper here)'s first screen role following the success of his debut album. (insert newly popular rapper here) has noted that he's excited to get in front of the camera, but that he's still humble and remembers selling tapes from the trunk of a Cadillac El Dorado.

Maybe I'll lie and tell them to order two so they'll have one for the shelf, cuz once all the guilt-ridden white hippies up here see that title they're going to be clamoring to get a copy. If only you'd somehow worked the Grateful Dead into the title, it'd be over.

6 copies on the shelf at the Westbury, NY store if you're interested. I'm gonna try to hold off reading it 'til my trip, but the Q&A on the back cover made me crack up, so that's definitely a good thing.

The cashier gave me a crazy look when I bought my copy...

CASHIER: Are you really buying this? This is sad...
ME: It's in the humor section, not a "How-To" manual.
CASHIER: Oh. Because, yeah, I was gonna say, do you really need a book to tell you how to make black friends?
ME: Yes.

I've gotta support one of us actually doing something productive outside of this site that doesn't involve Fruity Loops & can actually be purchased in a store.

I'll be back with my thoughts on the book in 3-5 business days (yeah, I went with the cheap postage, this ain't a race motherf-ckas!).

Maybe it'll be great, maybe it'll be a good bathroom book, maybe it'll suck so bad that I'll think "If Nick can pull off getting published, so can I". I'll await the arrival of this opus with great anticipation.

76. "saw it @ Barnes & Noble today in the humor section"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Proudly displayed between "Garfield Fattens Out" and Jeff Foxworthy's "You Might Be a Redneck vol. 37"

I was really hoping to see it displayed in the "new release" section with a little more prominence, but that's outta Nick's hands I'm sure, and involves a bunch of B.S. I don't fully understand.

It's really weird reading a book by a fellow PTPer. Anytime I read a thought provoking passage, I was overwhelmed with this urge to click the "Reply with Quote" button. But there wasn't one.

But just so you know, your thoughts on Randy Travis felt like reading out of my diary.

Anyway, tons of respect and best of luck to you on this, man. I picked up a copy and look forward to reading it. And then *finally* start making friends with black people!

I really enjoyed it.

Seriously, though, you need to get them to copyedit the thing, there was like six or seven significant mistakes.

but your wife is a SNOOT (see, e.g., David Foster Wallace's lovely essay on usage, reprinted in his latest book of essays, Consider the Lobster). SNOOT sometimes stands for Syntax Nudniks of Our Time. I should know, though. I'm a SNOOT myself.

It's getting face treatment in the Humor section and was on the "noteable new paperbacks" table up front too. I opted for Ballad of the Whiskey Robber, but seeing as though I'm without cable for 2 weeks, I'll get around to buying it next weekend.

It's funny AND thought provoking. It's written in such a perfectly conversational style that I kept thinking I could interrupt and ask questions or bring up points of my own. I ended up having to discuss it with the cats.

But then I kept citing him. You know "My *friend* Nick is black and HE says." lol, j/k but I did keep giving him credit when I would start howling about some issue that he had put clearly and succinctly.

If I have any complaints so far it's this:

I walked downtown to grab some food and the book, but it's turns out that you're book does NOT make it easy to read, walk, and eat at the same time. So I put the snacks on hold and kept reading. I finished the first chapter and it's some funny shit. Gonna go back to reading right now.

Nick, you're a funny dude (who knew?!). But what I really enjoyed was the race and pop culture criticism. You had some poignant stuff to say about the Britany Spears types.

Funny story 1: people on the subway try and pretend like they're not noticing the title of the book this white dude is reading.

Funny story 2: the book was at home in the living room. my girlfriend is home and she lets in a (black) real estate agent who's showing our house... to a black couple. all three people give my girlfriend funny looks. the broker says, "yeah, i try to make friends with white people too."

lol.
