So I'm going to start on my first film for video/ film class..... excited and nervous. I hope you guys like it. It is about a girl who is forced to marry an abusive man. Her parents marry her off in an attempt to "fix" her because she is in love with a girl named Helena.
Well that's all Im going to say but let me know what you guys think so far about it.
Afro-punk member Nikki Lynette is a outspoken artist on a variety of subjects and recently has been attacked by a trivial online comedian who lost out to Issa Raye in 2012 Shorty Award for Best Web Show for her defense of Raye's win.

i feel alone in my beliefs, in this world, and in this life. its a feeling that has…

Disclaimer: Before i begin this rant about my dislike of this film and its novels, I want to say that Im blogging this with the belief that it may offend and upset fans of the series and that i will most likely get ridiculed and persecuted for stating my personal beliefs.
Im not saying I wont except responsibility if I'm proven wrong in a civilized and respectful debate on the matter and apologize for any offense I may have caused. Even sol, if you dont stand up for something you…

Sometimes you have to sacrifice personal luxuries for a greater cause. It isnt easy to give up what you personally enjoy for the benefit of others or the belief in your cause but if it were to end world hunger, homelessness, or even death, could a person learn to put down the remote, log off, volume down, and stand up?
I dont represent myself. I try to represent my cause. "Appearances can be deceiving" applies, and there is more to…

We love to hear from the LGBT voices of the community, and boy did we hear from them when artist collective The Artchitects released the first episodes of their new monthly web series 'The Peculiar Kind'. Candidness and humor are on the program, but the issues highlighted are sometimes serious (hate crimes, safety, relationships, substance/alcohol abuse, lifestyle). "[Alexis Casson] wanted to create a…Continue
Creativity within the AP community is tremendous, and there's nothing like stumbling upon an underground band like The Breathing Light, going DIY all the way, whether it's making music, shooting videos, putting shows together, or speaking out for LGBT rights.

If there’s one role that every struggling black actress has had to rely on at some point in her career, it’s the Sassy Black Friend. You know the one. She’s the character who seems to perpetually exist outside of the plot, a sort of one woman Chorus whose main purpose is to cast her eyes to the heavens in the most exaggerated of eye rolls, click her tongue, and make smarmy comments about what’s going on – while never actually being allowed to take part in what’s going on. There…Continue
