BEAUTIFUL HOMAGE TO IMMIGRANTS

In need of something uplifting and inspiring.

Something to lift up the soul.

My heart, my soul are raw … sometimes I feel I can’t breathe.

Today is one of those days!

~THE BACKBONE OF AMERICA~

The dance world already knows that Keone and Mari Madrid are brilliant storytellers, choreographers who can create narrative movement that moves us. But we especially love it when they use their choreographic voices to highlight important causes.

For this year’s VIBE Dance Competition exhibition performance, the husband-and-wife duo created a beautiful homage to the immigrants who form the backbone of America.

Inspired by their grandparents, “who came to America to make a new life for their families,” and by “the many displaced humans around the world who are trying to do the same,” We Are is an emotional exploration of the trials immigrants have faced – and continue to face today.

Its message hits even more powerfully thanks to its innovative use of video projections (by Vibrvncy/Nick Kim) and some ingenious set design (by Brandon and John Arii).

Simon Cowell gives opera singer Daniel Emmet an impossible challenge on ‘America’s Got Talent’

Classical crossover singer Daniel Emmet thought that he was sure to sail through his audition for “America’s Got Talent.”

But as we saw on the June 19 episode of “AGT,” head judge Simon Cowell had something else in mind for this 25-year-old singer, who intended to perform an original song that was a mashup of opera and pop. He had barely begun this tune, which came across as bland and boring, when judge Simon Cowell cut him off and requested that he sing a different song.

When Emmet admitted he had not come prepared with an alternate, Cowell seemed crossed. He dispatched him from the stage and gave him just one hour to learn another song, the Il Divo hit “Passera.”

The visibly nervous neophyte returned in the appointed 60 minutes and proceeded to wow the audience, the panel and even himself with his rendition of this Italian aria.

GoldSwirl

~LAWYER AND HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST~

I’ve had the honor and the pleasure of meeting Melanie.

She was an invited speaker to a local LGBTQ Orlando event back in 2013.

Since then I have maintained contact with her through social media and followed her continued efforts for the rights of the LGBTQ community in her current location in California and all over the world.

Her right to exercise her 1st amendment rights lead to cancellation of a speaking engagement at a Navy Pride event.

Reason: she has tweeted comments that are critical of the Drumpf administration!

SURPRISE!! 

I’m trying to find a video that shows her interview in Joy Reid’s MSNBC show of June 23, 2018.

So far, no luck. I’m including a link to said interview.

Please, stop by and take a look … this is how ‘suppression’ begins.

We have already seen quite a few samples of such attempts.

I expect that this story will have another and, many several chapters!

~ABOUT MELANIE~

CURRENT

Executive Director, African Human Rights Coalition
Past Vice President, San Francisco Pride Board
Director, Peacemaker Museum World Tour
Mediator: Private Courts, Inc
Speaker: melnathan.com
Appointed by Town Council of San Anselmo to Board of Review, established in July 1978 by Town Council Ordinance #743. The board meets to hear and decide appeals from employee disciplinary actions, grievances and citizen complaints against employees.

“Her peers call her “a force of nature”

Melanie Nathan, a South Africa-born attorney, used her law school experience to assist African workers who were victims of apartheid in the 1980’s.

After immigrating to the U.S., she founded Private Courts, Inc., a mediation and human rights advocacy firm in Marin County, California.

She is also a prolific blogger and journalist who uses her writing “as a platform for my advocacy work …to get results such as helping LGBT asylum seekers.” It’s taken her to some controversial places: regular communication with the author of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, an investigation of “corrective rape” of lesbians in South Africa, which led to a Parliamentary Task team.

In addition to her blog, O-Blog-Dee-O-Blog-Da, she contributes to The Advocate, LGBTQ Nation and others. Nathan is co-producer of GAY U.S.A. the Movie, a documentary debunking the myths that impact gay rights.

“No American, least of all our own community, should sit back and allow prejudice and discrimination to continue. This is the final frontier of the civil rights movement in America,” Nathan argues.

“Each and every one of us has a duty to tell our stories, and not one ear should be spared.”

~Speaker at Navy Pride event cancelled for anti-Drumpf tweets~

Melanie and her attorney, Lisa Bloom, join Joy Reid on the MSNBC show to speak about the Navy rescinding her invitation to speak at said event.

Melanie was scheduled to speak at a Navy Pride event due to concerns about political statements made on Twitter.

“Although her comments and views are not inappropriate for a private citizen exercising their right ‘free speech’, they are inappropriate for our agency to endorse in a potential speaker for a command-sponsored event.”

STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN

FROM DRUMPF TO KIM, WITH LOVE

This is real, this isn’t made up

The bright minds that follow, worship, advise and coddle the ‘so-called president’ have come up with this fictional scenario.

It’s something that’s really worthwhile your time.

Reminds me of Orwell’s ‘1984‘ and Margaret Atwood’s ‘The Handmaid Tale‘… doublespeak, total government control, sheer propaganda.

Ha, HE wishes … the orange turd!

Take a look and you decide.

~The Sensational Idiocy of Donald Trump’s Propaganda Video for Kim Jong Un~

~By Troy Patterson~

June 12, 2018

In Singapore, on Tuesday, June 12, reporters covering the summit between Drumpf and the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, were surprised with a screening of what appeared to be a movie trailer. You could argue that, because tax dollars likely paid for the creation of the clip, we the people ought to share a producing credit. But the nature of the film – its grandiosity, its gaudiness, its chaotic logic, its indiscriminate idiocy – is such that we must understand Drumpf as its author.

The clip, a four-minute overture from Drumpf to Kim, is styled as a movie preview. A golden production logo announces this as a presentation of “Destiny Pictures,” and frequent stock footage finds the sun shining like a dime beyond the curve of a turning world.

Is Drumpf inviting Kim to take command of Universal Pictures? Or join him in playing God? Does either of them know the difference?

Could it be, this audience with Sly?

The narrator is cautiously optimistic:

“When could this moment in history begin? It comes down to a choice on this day, in this time, at this moment.

The world will be watching, listening, anticipating . . . .”

The eyes and ears of the world are represented by telephoto lenses and by TV control rooms and by a woman alone on a sofa watching TV, because this is the sum of what Drumpf knows of persuasion.

A Story of Opportunity” This is the English version of the video “trailer” that Drumpf showed Chairman Kim Jong Un during their historic summit on 6/12/18.

This is a rip from the official White House press conference live stream, where they showed the video to reporters before the ‘so-called president’ took questions.

BAD LIP READING

It’s not all Seriousness, Pomp and Circumstance

Since I’m still on the ‘royal wedding topic’, let’s have some fun with it.

I’m sure that this young couple would enjoy this ‘parody’ as much as i do.

I hope you enjoy it too.

Funny!!

More than 29 million viewers in the U.S. alone tuned in to watch Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding at Windsor Castle on May 19 – but not every moment was perfectly broadcast for us to hear at home.

Enter the “lip reading.”

In this “Bad Lip Reading” satire video, the team of jokesters at the Bad Lip Reading account imagines just what’s going down in the dialogue that we missed, from Prince Harry and Prince William‘s head-scratching exchange to an alternative sermon delivered by the Bishop Michael Curry.

Prepare for some prime reaction shots, too, from audience members like the Duchess of Cambridge, Sir Elton John and soccer star David Beckham.
