THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message within this music video.

Indeed, have to watch it more than once! In a blunt manner, not sparing any punches, Donald Glover presents the true and crude reality of America.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned. Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

The video speaks for itself.

RedLineBOn the latest Saturday Night Live, Childish Gambino – the musical pseudonym for actor and Atlanta creator Donald Glover – released “This Is America,” a searing social critique of pop culture and the experience of being black in America today.

~DONALD GLOVER~

The actor, who has been riding high these days with both his series “Atlanta” and his role as young Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” both hosted “Saturday Night Live” and was the musical guest as his rap/R&B alter ego, ‘Childish Gambino‘.
Glover as Gambino won a Grammy this year for best traditional R&B performance for his song “Redbone” and premiered two new songs on “SNL,” titled “Saturday” and “This Is America.”

Here’s what you need to know about the music video that has many hailing Glover/Gambino as a genius:
You will need to watch it more than once
Directed by “Atlanta” director Hiro Murai, the video is pretty surreal and packed full of messages.
It’s expansive and filmed in a warehouse, which allows for a lot of action.
As much as your eye will be drawn to Glover as a shirtless Gambino, pay close attention also to what is happening in the background.

~It takes on gun violence in America~
Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video — a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.
The imagery also has sparked conversation about several other themes, including police brutality, social media habits and what people are really paying attention to in the United States.
“The fact that Childish Gambino’s ‘This is America‘ tackles police brutality, gun violence, media misdirection, and the use of African Americans as a brand shield, all while dancing in Jim Crow-style caricature, shows a transcendence or mere performance and demands attention,” one person tweeted.

OH. MY. GOD!!!

Johns Creek’s Angelica Hale

She’s a young girl, short in stature but huge in talent.

Her voice commands the stage.

What a sight to behold.

Watch her story and her performance.

A needed brake for a bit of goodness and beautifully amazing human beings.

Johns Creek nine-year-old Angelica Hale surprised the audience on night two with a super mature voice for her age.

Her back story: when she was four years old, she lost her kidney function after double pneumonia. Fortunately, her mom provided her daughter a kidney and she has thrived.

The judges loved her and gave her a standing ovation. “You’re tiny,” said Simon Cowell. “Your voice is huge. I have a feeling we’re looking at a future star.”

Angelica covered Andra Day’s “Rise Up.”

LAST NIGHT WAS FEBRUARY 17, 2017

Brutal Attacks on Sweden

‘We stand with Sweden in the face of these brutal attacks by swarthy poor people’

An awful incident, a terrorist attack, occurred in Sweden on February 17, 2017.

In the mid of ‘so-called president Drumpf‘, the ‘so-called’ leader of the free world.

He announced it at this ego-stroking campaign rally in Melbourne, Florida on February 18.

Needless to say, many were confused.

Mainly the country of Sweden.

The have asked for a a formal explanation.

Oh, forgot to say, it happened in Drumpf’s mind after he was watching Fox News the day before.

The news site to be trusted.

~Sweden Formally Asks Trump to Explain Comments About Fake Terror Attack~

Nathan Wellman

February 19, 2017

“When you look at what’s happening in Germany,” Drumpf said. “When you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden – Sweden!” he said during the rally.

“Who would believe this? Sweden!

They took in large numbers, they’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

The Drumpf administration has fabricated acts of violence before. Drumpf’s top aide Kellyanne Conway cited a fictional “Bowling Green Massacre” which supposedly occurred in Kentucky to defend the administration’s Muslim Immigration Ban, which bans travel into the US from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Sean Spicer, the Press Secretary, informed about a similar attack in Atlanta.

The Swedish Migration Agency processed 81,000 refugees seeking asylum in 2014, 163,000 in 2015, and 29,000 in 2016. Another 25,000 to 45,000 are expected to be accepted this year. The last terrorist attack to occur on Swedish soil took place in 2010, a suicide bombing carried out by an Iraqi-born Swede who killed only himself and injured two others.

The Drumpf administration has yet to publicly respond to Sweden’s request for clarification.

What to expect from Lady Gaga’s performance

by Alex Abad-Santos

Look alive, people, we have made it to Super Bowl 51, one of the biggest music events of the year that happens to come with a side of football.

Sports fans may take issue with that description, but I’d bet your biggest memory of last year’s game has more to do with Beyoncé’s politically charged halftime performance than with the final score (unless, of course, you’re a Panthers or Broncos superfan).

The 2017 Super Bowl halftime show has just as much potential to make a political statement.

The headliner is the one and only Lady Gaga, a singer with a reputation for spectacle and some of the most undeniable pop hits – “Poker Face,” “Paparazzi,” “Bad Romance” – of this young century.

Gaga hasn’t told anyone what songs she’ll be playing or how political her performance might be. However, she has hinted that she won’t shy away from themes of diversity and inclusivity – a constant throughline in her career.

To start the day …. “Humans of New York”!!


NY1

~~February 4, 2015~~ 

Humans of New York (HONY) is a photoblog and bestselling book featuring street portraits and interviews collected in New York City. Started in November 2010 by photographer Brandon Stanton, over 6,000 portraits have been gathered thus far. Humans of New York has developed a large following through social media, and has over 11.5 million followers on Facebook and over 2.1 million followers on Instagram as of October 2014.

Stanton, who grew up outside of Atlanta and attended the University of Georgia, came to New York after a three-year stint as a bond trader in Chicago. Having started his career as a bond trader in the year 2008, Brandon Stanton decided to pursue his passion of photography professionally after he lost his job in 2010. He started to take candid portraits on streets which became a hit on his Facebook page. Stanton is most known for his photo blog Humans of New York, started in 2010. During a speech at New York’s 2013 Social Media Week, Tumblr founder David Karp described Humans of New York as his favorite blog on Tumblr. At the2013 Webby Awards, Humans of New York won the Webby for “Best Use of Photography” and the People’s Voice Award for “Best Cultural Blog.” In December 2013, Stanton was named one of Time Magazine’s 30 Under 30 People Changing The World.

Brandon Stanton, a 30-year old self-taught photographer, started Humans of New York in November 2010. Initially, he planned to gather 10,000 portraits of New Yorkers and plot them on a map of the city. The project soon evolved, however, when Stanton started having conversations with his subjects and including small quotes and stories alongside his photographs. With this new format, the blog began to grow rapidly. In a matter of months, HONY became so popular that when Stanton accidentally updated his Facebook status by tapping his phone’s Q key, his post garnered 73 likes within a minute. As of December 2014, Humans of New York has over eleven million likes on its Facebook page.

Hey there. My name is Brandon and I began Humans of New York in the summer of 2010, shortly after leaving my job in Finance. (OK, I actually got fired.) I started HONY because I thought it would be really cool to create an exhaustive catalogue of New York City’s inhabitants, so I set out to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers and plot their photos on a map.

Somewhere along the way, I began to interview my subjects in addition to photographing them. And alongside their portraits, I’d include quotes and short stories from their lives.

Taken together, these portraits and captions became the subject of a vibrant blog. HONY now has over ten million followers on social media, and provides a worldwide audience with daily glimpses into the lives of strangers on the streets of New York City.
