FLAVOR FLAV (2012 Celebrate Fairfax Begins Today)

The following text is from one of my first posts when I started this blog:

I recently watched the first episode of Strange Love featuring Brigitte Nielsen and Flavor Flav on VH1. Flavor Flav is just fun to watch. He traveled to Milan to visit Brigitte, and the reactions of the people of Italy to Flavor Flav with his Viking hat and giant watch around his neck is priceless.

I hope that you didn’t click on the link above since my writing during the early days of this blog was terrible. Anyway, 7+ years after I wrote that post, I will see Flavor Flav live in person as he serves as the host of Legends of Hip Hop tonight. While I’m excited to see Digital Underground, Rob Base, DJ Kool and Young MC, I’m equally excited to see Flavor Flav. As VH1’s Jim Shearer wrote during my interview with him a few years back, “I remember him as an all-time great hypeman in hip-hop, but his series of reality shows has opened him up to a whole other audience.”

Now that I’m done linking to old blog posts, let’s get to Celebrate Fairfax. Everything you need to know is on the festival website. The website has the ticket information, entertainment line-up, directions and more for the 31st annual event running today through Sunday.

Want more? has a great preview. Northern Virginia Magazine has a write-up and a chance to win 4 tickets (you must enter by noon today).

Finally, check out my thoughts about this year's headliners (including Pat Benatar & The Legwarmers) and my pitch on why you should attend Celebrate Fairfax if you live in the DC area. And yes, now I really am done with linking to old blog posts.
