AstroBlackness: Planet Deep South at Jackson State University

February 24, 2016 to February 26, 2016
Planet Deep South is a three- day interdisciplinary colloquium open to all scholars, artists, and graduate students that explore the intellectual and creative expression of African people through a series of panel discussions designed to inspire the inquiry of southern Black cultural production through a historical and speculative lens.  Through an Afro-futuristic outlook, thinkers, writers, musicians and artists envision a Pan African world that is diverse yet specific; imagined, yet real,…See More

1000 thanks for supporting our presence at OnxyCon.

Definitely depth. Well said. When I write I try to make my protagonist real, so folks can remember them. Blade was our hero because he was a black assassin that killed white vampires lol j/k; but if they would have let him love his enemy, it would have brought much depth to his character. Okay enough ranting I just can't talk to my wife about vampires and Blade because she has no interest haha; so I enjoyed our little chat. Much blessings sister.

I agree. Even a tortured soul needs love, good stuff. I think that is the critic with Hollywood nowadays. They write for action over story. Blade could have been both if they would have let him embrace the side of himself that he hated. =)

Hi Linda, I hope all is well.

Great meeting you Linda. I actually thought Blade II was the best of the series, but I was disappointed that the writers didn't want to give a brother Nyssa. lol I mean Superman got Lois Lane, Spiderman got Mary Jane Watson even Batman got Vicki Vale, but they couldn't give Blade Nyssa? Man that was just a sad ending. If I would have written the script Wesley Snipes would have gotten an Oscar lol. Because I would have made the ending powerful, but I can understand if they stayed true to the comic books. =)

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

A glass of beer, deconstructed. (a) At the beer’s surface sits a head of foam. (b) A trail of bubbles rises from a nucleation site along the glass wall. The rising of bubbles from different nucleation sites induces a global circulation (sketched here with white arrows). (c) Cellulose fibers serve as nucleation sites; gas cavities inside the fiber are clearly visible. (d) A 3-mm-wide mushroom-shaped bubble plume arises from the implosion of a millimeter-sized bubble when a beer bottle is gently tapped. (e) Surface bubbles seen from…

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
