another haibun (as usual please critique)

I question why we call them civilized. What kind of civilized being would do something so horrid to itself? It was the second day of our expedition. We had already recorded many of their strange social norms when we were invited by a native to a social event. As described it was a common ritual celebrating the female body. I and my partner eagerly accepted the invitation. We didn’t know the horrors that waited.



At the appointed time we came to the appointed location and waited with… Continue

Douglas Bryan Roach and the Spanish Civil War

Just saw this one on PBS' "The History Detectives."  Very touching story about Douglas Roach, an African-American who volunteered to fight against the fascists during the Spanish Civil War. He was killed in action in 1938, I believe it was. His touching eulogy was written and delivered by his friend and comrade-in-arms, Sol Feldman. It's a sad and wonderful story.…

My current dilemma in moving The Darkside Trilogy forward...

So, you have a community of Black folks living on the backside of the moon without, for all practical purposes, anyone on Earth knowing that they're there.  And, they've been there for four decades before they are "Discovered."

 

What kind of culture do they have? 

What values govern their behavior? 

What goals do they have and how are they determined?

Who decides the direction of the community's endeavors?

 

And more…

Gene Therapy

"I can't believe what they called it; Vampirism. They even equated it with mysticism and the supernatural." The Doctor stood over the supine human form in commiseration with a Technician.

Getting My Online Presences in Order...

I did two positive things today.

 

1. I created a blog for myself called Half-Black, Half-Zebra (URL: angeecee.blogspot.com). The blog will be a place where I'm going to act all ignorant and stupid and dumb... If you are the type of person to become easily offended, then perhaps you shouldn't visit my blog. Hey, a sista has to vent some kind of way. :P

 

2. I created a store on…

DAMBALLA IS IN THE HOUSE!

 The heyday of the pulp magazines was before my time. I was born during the dying days of that era, and by the time I was old enough to read and appreciate the fiction those magazines published, they were long gone -- in spirit, at least. But I did delve heavily into paperback books, which are the…

cam cult meets the twinkie revenger

I'm not old school by nature, I came into this way because someone has to hold the line. There was a convergence between cell phone camera people and reality show folks. Scared the heck out of me. They copied the flash dancers and instead of converging in a mall, they have an internet channel. The technology is intrusive, they put their cams on ID cards to wear around the neck, on head bands, buttons, badges and trinkets. There is a rival group who wear flexible video monitors but I believe…

An Evening In Tabsyfiide

.                   “Ulafazfi Telidosse.  We killin’ the menfolk or what?” asked the gravel voiced Veyahansa, pointing to a group of men separated from the crowd of women, children and elderly in the just plundered compound of a well off city dweller of the recently taken city of Tabysiifide.    “You! Nedresse blood or Khiv?",  she asked one burly hard staring man, his muscular arms hanging by his side,  fists looking like they shaped and hammered metal into form without need of tools.  They…

Damnatio memoriae...

Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on December 14, 2018 at 5:30am 0 Comments

Topics: Civics, Existentialism, Humor, Politics

Damnatio memoriae is a modern Latin phrase meaning "condemnation of memory", i.e., that a person is to be excluded from official accounts. There are and have been many routes to damnatio, including the destruction of depictions, the removal of names from inscriptions and documents, and even large-scale rewritings of history.

In Latin, the term damnatio…

The Perfect Fluid...

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

The Diversity Track & Black Science Fiction Society Back For Dragoncon 2019

I just got news this week that the Diversity Track will be back for 2019 at DragonCon.

I could not ask for better volunteers, guests, photographers, moderators and participants.

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 1992....at 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…

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.
