Ronald Moon and the Evanston Arts Center

leave a comment »

I was scrolling down my FB timeline when I ran across this video:

Ronald Moon lives in Evanston, one of the toughest/roughest neighborhoods in Cincinnati. To see that he is trying to make a change in the community only to be thwarted by some of those who are imprisoned in a broken spirituality is heartbreaking.

But then he just forgives them and wants to keep on doing his work.

Please help Ronald Moon by giving to his fund. If you can’t help them pass along the word so those who can help will know about it.

Be strong, Ronald. There are so many of us out there that care.

JP Chan is Picturing You… Or Somebody…

leave a comment »

I want to see this film.

I probably will eventually find it on Netflix or have to request it as an Interlibrary Loan book before it makes its way to me.  But I am going to see it.

Just for the fact alone that is has a gorgeous AMBF couple in it, which the beautiful Teyonah Parris is a part of.

PoY

The movie was written and directed by J.P. Chan.  You may remember some of his earlier work, like Digital Antiquities, which I have briefly written about in an earlier blog.

If you are interested in seeing it just from the trailer then go to their website or like their Facebook page to find out when it makes its way to your city.

And if you go see it and you liked it, leave me a comment in the box.

I really do read them.

When I was younger, I can remember the multiple camps and day workshops my mother had me in during the summer. My mumbled complaints would be silenced with a statement that  I would thank her when I got older. She wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t forget how to write a paper or figure…

On May 23rd, former Superstar K contestant, Euna Kim, will release her first album, which was produced by MFBTY.

On May 19th, Kim’s label, Music K Entertainment, announced that the project album “Love Me Love,” will be released on the May 23rd. Tiger JK stated that upon hearing Euna Kim rap, he requested to be her mentor and came up with the project album idea. MFBTY gave Kim an abundance of support and featured on her title track “이젠 너 없어도 (Without You Now).”

The Music Video is said to be of a dramatic, movie like concept where a timid & shy girl performs in front of a large crowd, showing her hidden talent and dancing with her wings. Tiger JK, Yoon MiRae and Bizzy feature as cameos in the music video clip, which was produced by producer Lumpens, who has also worked with Lee Hyo Ri and the legendary…
