People want to always act like Alabama and Mississippi are the buttcheeks of America. But people forget that there are other states that are still wrestling with changing times that aren’t in the south, like Indiana. (And in Alabama’s defense, at least Birmingham is the only city that can learn from its mistakes and make moves to progress to Atlanta-esque proportions.)
Month: March 2015
I’m finally putting this up! Apologies to the major lack of recap. Here we go.
Deadline is dealing with a huge controversy thanks to one of its latest posts.
I was literally taken aback when I got on Twitter last night to find this parasitical article by Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, with the lacking-tact title “Pilots 2015: The Year of Ethnic Castings-About Time or Too Much of a Good Thing?” (linked using donotlink so it won’t get the clicks).
I will start the afternoon off on a happy note since the rest of the day will feature READING OUT THE WAZOO. The library is about to be open. But not before we check out Eva Mendes and her incredible style.
A new film to be on the lookout for! Warner Bros. and MGM are proud to bring Max, a film that features a teen coping with the loss of his brother with his brother’s military dog.
I, like a lot of people, came to know Nicholas Gonzalez from his role on Sleepy Hollow. Of course, I was sad to see his character Luke get removed from the story.
I’ve been a little behind on my blog recommendations, so some of these posts will be from weeks prior. But some are current. In any case, they’re all insightful.
Selma has undoubtedly become one of the most important films of this and last year, and starting March 20, the film is coming back to the theaters!
A few weeks ago, I was issued the call to participate in FictionDiversity’s #TheSorkinChallenge, a challenge to cast the film adaptation of the Michael Lewis novel Flash Boys, a non-fiction book centered around data links, stock exchanges, and the Brad Katsuyama’s creation of the IEX, a stock exchange meant to make exchanges fairer.
SXSW is underway, and one of the many musical acts you can see at the festival is R&B/pop singer Darnaa. I was happy to have a chance to catch up with her before her SXSW performance via email, and in the interview, you’ll learn more about how her musical family, what the song “Surv!val” means to her, and the special message she has for her fans.
