When Will White People Stop Making Movies Like "Avatar"? - A Critical Review



[When I first saw the movie Crash, I remember all the rave reviews it got for tackling race. And though I liked it well enough, something just didnt' sit right. Wasn't until I read Jeff Chang and Sylvia Chan's scathing deconstruction of the flick that I put my finger on it. Same can be said for District 9, which I found odious when it came to race, despite claims… Continue

Okay.



We spend a lot of time talking about geting our stuff "out there" and chasing agents and publishing deals. I think that's the nature of the beast and, frankly, I don't really know any more about how to "make it" in that respect than anybody else. My advice is always, work hard, be tenacious, take risks and expect a LOOOOOOOOONG haul before you get some success.



However.



Once again, the Force, or, as we call it on Earth, the INTERNET, provides an… Continue

Origins of the chronicals

I’m the mid night writer from the house of “O”, meaning there’s a lot of Orisha there

and this blog is in regards to a recently published Orisa and ancestor based Novel, and why I wrote and published it. For far to long non-African descended individuals in the media, the movie industry, and European writers have been seizing our spiritual traditions and interpreting and depicting them images that are misleading, misinterpreted, distorted, misrepresented. I have observed this phenomenon all… Continue

Why We're Fascinated by the Paranormal, Masonic Myths and Secret Societies

For the most part, I tend to find secret society based conspiracy theories...very annoying in my reality-based world. But, they do make for great speculative fiction! - Djeli

Chronicle of the Liberator -- Review

Chronicle of the Liberator (Paperback)

By Ronald T. Jones

August 15, 2004

Iuniverse

$12.95

Ronald T. Jones’ Chronicle of the Liberator is a thrilling science fiction read. Ronald definitely captured the true essence of a military sci-fi story with this story.

Chronicle of the Liberator is about Thomas Richard Jackson, a mild-manner man living a boring life, who breathes the spirit of low self-esteem. One day, during a horrific episode, which highlights his… Continue

Whisper midnight secrets in my ears

What she experiences is a constant and tragic struggle between good and evil. Her transcendence to become Adesanya Fayemi Olatunde and giving birth to a divine baby… Continue

Question on Grad School Program of Neuroscience

Posted by AL Bey on November 19, 2017 at 2:33pm 0 Comments

Hello Peeps,

Currently I'm in the final stages of applying for a grad program at Michigan State called Literary Neuroscience. This program has had "general" internet info circulating for maybe only 7 years, with arguably a location of no more than 5 schools in the whole USA. After taking the GRE today and sending out my scores to these scores, I was curious in wondering, "Are there any predominantly/historically black schools that house programs with similar combined studies of literature and cognition?" Even though the term "literary neuroscience" is relatively new, I'm sure the concept isn't. As an old saying goes, "There is nothing new under the Sun." Plus, one of thee world's foremost conventional experts on Brain Surgery & Neuroscience is renown doctor/author, Ben Carson, also from Detroit, MI. If anyone has answers and/or feedback to this vital question, let me know. And even if I do end up in Michigan, East Lansing is likely to be somewhat of a post-gentrified Nu…

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.
