Sanford Biggers Studio Visit in NYC, etc.

As part of my research I am covering the Afrofuturist influence in contemporary art, so I thought I should share with you the post about my visit to Sanford Biggers' studio this week.

Dillon And The Pirates of Xonira

Section 31: Mission Angst

Kenneth Dumaka, Section 31 agent in training, looked around the vast, gaudily adorned Hall of Light, more to detract from his increasing unease than to observe. The Hall was a perfect replica of a typical Andorran place of assemblage, with its sharply arched ceiling, and thin, spiral-faceted columns lining a transluscent perimeter. The difference lay in location. This Hall floated in space, encased in nine square miles of thick, tri-alloy superstructure.

The station was called…

Evil Walks. Part 8.

Bill Green felt nervous as he was driving his black ford SUV down Liberty Avenue in the city of Pittsburgh. The young black male took his right hand from the steering wheel to loosen two more buttons on his blue shirt in order to cool off a bit more. On a hot summer day like this he was starting to regret wearing his black jeans instead of a pair of shorts. His black sneakers were causing his feet to sweat. Bill could have dressed in a more cooler…

ramblings of an enslave in retro america

Most of the people I associate with are of average intelligence. They work, play, some go to church. I probably am more spiritually involved than a lot, but maybe not. We live in our dreams, our hopes and our prayers. That is the point. We live in fantasy, in dreams, in spiritual constructs so much that reality is redefined. The $25 tennis shoe is bought for $278.37 because of some endorsement from a guy who could do the same feat in brogans if he had to. Buy the shoe, embrace the dream.…

Life imitates art.



Wikipedia: Anti-mimesis is a philosophical position that holds the direct opposite of mimesis. Its most notable proponent is Oscar Wilde, who held in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life". In the essay, written as…

Decays of atomic nuclei are potential sources of information on fundamental phenomena occurring in the quantum world. Unfortunately it is a rather difficult task to model such processes. Yet National Centre for Nuclear Research (NCBJ) physicists have successfully simulated the process of neutron→proton conversion in singly ionized 6He atom nucleus and correctly…

I Still Have My Slide Rule...



July 20, 1969 was a Sunday. NASA interrupted my cartoons on Saturday. I didn't mind. My parents were transfixed as well. The world east of US52 in Winston-Salem, NC seemed to slow; each moment savored, each conversation focused on this one event. Unlike the social stratification we "enjoyed," we weren't…

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.
