From where your stories come?

Where did that story come from?



It came from the mist of course. The main problem with an oral tradition is that the details get fuzzier as the time goes on, soon the truth is lost in antiquity. You have to hear the story told from various people to get an idea of what the original message was about.



The mbira is a musical instrument of the Shona people of the Zimbabwe area. They report a particular story around the instrument, how it came to them. Other African peoples also… Continue

Musings of a Steampunk of Color

I've been reading a lot of articles about we Steampunks of Color and while it's cool to know that we are out there, some of the over-analyzation about being a minority in this subculture is kind of self-defeating, not to mention borders on the whiny. I’m far from naïve, and know that perception is everything, but why are we iconoclasts of color—in whatever realm we choose to call…

not seen on TV, yet

Even though the light saber was an "elegant weapon for a more civilized time", what if Mace Windu who like all Jedi built his own light saber, had also built a light saber proof mini shield or buckler. An African warrior would of had spear and shield. The shield would be emitted from a finger ring (always handy).



Another thought, thinking of President Obama, his love for the Blackberry PDA and his African Ancestry. The Diaspora Cyber Tribe. They each have a Blackberry device able to… Continue

afrofuturist spaceship in Canadian art show



Saturday was a big day for Outerregion. In the afternoon, Camille participated in a panel discussion with two of the other artists who are featured in Truth or Fiction?



The artists’ works in the show all have elements of challenging the notion of a single story of Canadian history. Have we been told the truth? Whose story is being told? Who is absent? Can we make our own narratives and tell stories in our own ways? Can we create new

realities? Can we change the…

Book Update

Ok, as of 11:56 last night, I finished the draft writing of my novel.



After wrestling with this thing since I first started writing it in late 2005 / early 2006, I finally have the complete book written out. That doesn't mean I'm done - I still have to let these last 3 chapters marinate a few days or a week, tweak and rework here and there, then put up the podcast episodes, but it's done. No longer a novel in progress, now it's a novel!







According to the stats I've… Continue

3D printing the future

Posted by ARCELIUS SCOTT on August 15, 2018 at 11:30am 0 Comments

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/114240903/drawns-3d-printed-range-of-design-furniture?ref=discovery&ref=discovery&term=3d%20printed

As of today Spacefans, the link above shows my new goal for my future in the 3D printing industry. 3D print farms are on the agenda for us to build our own, create our own, and own our own manufacturing methods and processes. After we meet the goal of 3D print farms, we should most definitely set our sights on using industrial articulating robots to "scale up" the manufacturing capability within the community.

A robot can cost anywhere between $25,000 and $100,000 but the industrious entrepreneur should be able to find one on the lower end of the spectrum. I'm not here to sell robots, just here to share vision with…

Finding your favorite indie Black Age products?

Posted by Turtel Onli on August 14, 2018 at 7:52am 1 Comment

At a time when the indie Black Age of Comics movement is now nation wide with indie conventions in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New York and San Francisco, a question emerges.  Where do you find a dedicated spinning rack of indie produced / published Black Age products?  Hmmmm?  No where except Chicago at the Du Sable Museum and the urban internet cafe' Copy Cat.  In each of the other markets listed, no rack.  Not even where there is a Black owned comic book store.  The internet alone will not reach the under served market.

This is a great opportunity & challenge foe legal honest industrious folks.  To market and distribute the Black Age of Comics indie products.

OK..... you say were the regular stores contacted?  Of course. ONLI STUDIOS even offered them spinning racks.  They…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

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.
