I just started a project called SFbios.com, which will be collecting bios by and about fans and pros which a lot of cons publish in our program books or souvenir books.  Only collecting attributed bios and posting them with permission of the authors.  If you work on or attend a con that publishes that sort of thing and would like to help, please let me know.

Twitter Explodes With # BoycottStarWarsVII Hashtag Claiming it Promotes Genocide

Monday brought upon us the release of the new Star Wars VII movie trailer, plus a vicious trending hashtag, #BoycottStarWarsVII. The tweets carrying this hashtag made claims that the Star Wars franchise was promoting “white genocide” because a large percent of the cast are people of color or ethnic minorities (Jewish), as well…

STORY STRUCTURE: Five Key Turning or Plot Points of a Successful Story

Stories are not rocket science. They are simple and all consist of the same basic principles. It may not be the easiest thing to write a story without pulling your hair (or weave) out, but the story itself is elementary. There are only three components typically found in mainstream literature and film:…

Guest Blog: The Importance of Multiculturalism in Fiction

I have to begin by saying the word multiculturalism makes me uncomfortable, especially when what we’re talking about is inclusion of people in fiction who come from the same country. It does seem a little sad that in 2015 many in America still haven’t been able to get past skin color, sexual orientation, and racial ancestry, especially in terms of…

The Good Lie

Watched this movie for the fourth or fifth time last night. It follows the journey of a group of siblings as they trek through the desert to Kenya after their village is destroyed by Janjaweed, their subsequent stay at a refugee camp and their eventual resettlement in America.

The movie captures their wonder and awe at the trappings of modern society and their confusion while learning its customs. This is a classic fish out of water story,but through it is an undercurrent of immense… Continue

Weekly Art Stream

Hello all!

Now that things have settled down and I pretty much have a locked schedule with my classes and school work, I have decided to do weekly art streams! What are art streams? Art streams are a gathering where people can hang out, chat and watch people draw. It's just a fun activity for folks that are involved.

So with that, I will be doing weekly art streams about 2-3 times a week. The schedule is as follows:

Monday: 8pm -…

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...

Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on December 11, 2018 at 5:30am 0 Comments

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.

Peace. As the post title says, (inspired by Rakim's greatest opening lines), this marks somewhat of a return. I have not posted in a long while, so here I am. I hope everyone whom I have not communicated with; are doing well. 

I will be checking in more often than not.

Peace.

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'm excited to be invited back for another groundbreaking event. Everyone associated with the first one this year knocked it out of the park! 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.
