Akim Funk Buddah is Back! So that is what he says in his email that he sent. And from what I remember, he has always been around. This is another one of those emails that I receive every so often that I find interesting to repost because hey, it's less writing sometimes in my attempt to maintain this blog when I am trying to figure out what to blah blog about. And Akim's shows are the coolest, the trippiest and rock like nothing you have ever seen before. So again, if you are in the neighborhood of the New York City area, this event may be worth checking out. Happy Thanksgiving, remember the Indians, their beads and trinkets, that twenty four dollars and the land of Manna-hatin, and eat more tofurkey.
