How Bad is it to be Surrounded by Evil?

When you are a child, no one instills in your brain how evil is among us.

It is kind of in music, whether you listen to it backwards, forward, it still has a hidden message.

Evil is in family. They smile in your face, love you and adore you until they can release you and betray you.

If your family is dysfunctional like mine, that definitely happens.

Family leaves you in the dark, giving you false hope of what family really means.

When you are down, they won’t pick you up.

It is within some friends.

It hides behind their faces…

A mask that is well worn. They take it off at night and call the closest person they can to reveal their evilness…. Continue reading

“My Block” – A Movie with a Powerful Enlightenment

Today I bring to you a movie based on gentrification which affects small businesses and neighborhoods today especially in NY. It’s a serious issue and somebody somewhere has got to take action. Before I get into specifics, let me introduce you to the definition and the man who created a movie I believe will open the eyes of many.

Gentrification is “the process of renewal and rebuilding accompanying the influx of middle-class or affluent people into deteriorating areas that often displaces poorer residents” – Merriam-Webster definition.  

Taquan Pugh, 24 and a Brooklyn native; is a man in control of his own work with high goals to inspire the world with his message. He is the true meaning of a young, innovative, upcoming entrepreneur that is multi-talented.

I had the pleasure of having a quick Q & A with him. Check it out:

1.  What inspired you to write such a great script?

“Gentrification is very prevalent in major cities across the country especially in my hometown of New York City. While I was in college every time I came home during breaks I was seeing how much neighborhoods were changing and how heavily it was affecting the natives of the city such as myself. So I wanted to write a script that spoke for us.” 

2. How did you find casting? Are they all your friends?

“I worked with a casting director and utilized the network of some of the actors and actresses who were already cast in the film. Also some of the actors are my friends who I went to school with.” 

3. Do you see yourself making black history for the big films?

“History has always been a very important thing to me. It is the foundation of any group of people. Therefore history will always be taught in my films.” 

4. Will there be humor films in the future of your work?

“Laughter eases the soul so humor will play a big part in all of my productions. ‘My Block’ actually has some humor in it. When the full film is released you will be able to see the humor.” 

5. Is your goal to be writer, director and actor?

“I plan to do writing, directing, and acting throughout my career. I also plan on attempting to compose music for my films in the future.” 

6.  Who are the top 5 idols that inspires your writing?

“Spike Lee, Martin Lawrence, John Singleton, Tupac, and Sam Cooke.” 

7. Have you thought of doing a mini series? 

“If some decent proposals come along then I would definitely consider a mini series. Gentrification is a very complex issue that ‘My Block’ can’t even cover in its entirely.”

8. You have an internship now, will it help improve your skills/knowledge? 

“I cant speak on the internship as of yet lol.” 

You can see for yourself all of Taquan’s creative talent in the trailer here:

Let me just say that I agree with him. Gentrification affects everyone in the community. It is best to speak now, while we still can. He has some wonderful icon choices and I am sure we will see the influence throughout his work.

I wish Taquan the best of luck with his success for the movie. I believe this internship can and will lead to bigger productions. I know he didn’t want to jinx anything, but my fingers are crossed. We all will be waiting for the premiere of “My Block” and future endeavors.

Good luck!

Don’t Judge Me!!……I’m Only Human…

Why do you look at me that way? Is it something I said?

NO.

It’s society. It throws everything at everybody and expects the most viral expectations.

I’m talking about LOOKS.

The what you looking at “looks”

The she got the job because she’s hot “looks”

The he got a nose job because he thought the original was ugly “looks”

Anything that’s possible that makes you wonder is it because of how you LOOK!

A person too shallow loves to focus on “looks” #NoShade

Celebrities make you want to stop eating greasy food and start a healthy regime because they display their bodies as if it were a masterpiece. You head to the gym with the goal to look like Amber Rose or Tyra Banks.

It dates so far back that it could have started anywhere. As our generation develops, I would like to think it started as kids.

Some of us have been bullied (I am one of them, happened like 2 times) and it occurs because a person is nerdy or too quiet. To say one is “nerdy” is to base it off of the way they dress differently from you or they wear glasses.

#NoBullying guys and girls.

Society shows us that if you are not sexy, hot, pretty, etc then you can’t make it in the world.

“Dear White People” Movie Review

I know it’s 2015 and the movie came out in 2014. I’m late and? Lol But After FINALLY watching it, I thought I’d pick the crazy things I spotted out for the world to notice.

I thought “Dear White People” was going to send a valuable message. Instead, it shows racism at it’s best! If you haven’t seen it, I advise that you watch it. Or even skip through it because it was a struggle to watch it all as it was very slow!

It almost put me to sleep! Seriously! Had me with one eye open like…..

The part that intrigued me the most was the university party. It makes me wonder how the world really acts. Trying to fit in is one thing, but to attempt to be like another race is something no one would like if it happened to them.

Don’t you agree?

The party “[was] a minstrel-like black party for WHITE students. Guests are encouraged to arrive in blackface, fried chicken and “purple drank” in hand, to wallow unabashedly in every abhorrent stereotype.” -via National Post.

In an article called Amherst Student it also says, “This culture war culminates in an “Unleash Your Inner Negro” party thrown by the nearly all-white members of Winchester’s comedy magazine, Pastiche. White students show up to the event in blackface, wielding gold guns and grills, wearing Barack and Michelle Obama masks and flashing gang signs.”

I could not have said it better myself.
