    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.

    William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country.

He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.

    Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles. 

    Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”

    AKANFO NANASOM: AKRADINBOSOM Pt. 12 - Amen Men: Central Nervous System; Protocol

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion, we conclude our series on the AKRADINBOSOM - the Abosom (Deities) who govern the solar, lunar and planetary bodies which govern the 7-day Akan week and also the Okra/Okraa (Soul) of the Akan individual.

    We examine the Male Obosom of Menmeneda (saturday) and the okyin nsoromma/planet Amene ('saturn'): Amen Men. He is called Amen Men in Akan and also Amen Men (Amun Min) in Khanit and Kamit, Orisha Oko in Yoruba and Azaka in Vodoun. Amen Men is an Obosom of Creation/generation. He governs the Divine Axis/Central Nervous System, a regulatory structure within Abode (ah-baw-deh‘/Creation) – the Divine Body of NyamewaaNyame (The Supreme Being) and thus the axis/central nervous system (brain and spinal column) within the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) body. Amen Men is a repository of Ancestral Tradition and Protocol.

    We also discuss Menmenit, the form that Afi (Het Heru) takes as the Female Obosom of Menmeneda (saturday) and the wife of Amen Men.


    We examine our publications: 

    Amen Men - Obosom of Amen Men and Menmeneda ('saturn' and 'saturday')



    Afi - Obosom of Afi and Fida ('venus' and 'friday')



    AKRADINBOSOM - Abosom of the Okra/Okraa (Soul) and the 7-day Akan Week

    When you think of a Vocalise, you think of one who is skilled above and beyond the average singer.  Everything from their tone, to pitch, to diction, to range far exceeds the normal capabilities of a person who uses their voice as their main instrument.

    From the simple cafe on the corner to the massive, sold-out arenas and stadiums, Toni "Tj" Scruggs has been the most sought out Vocalise of our day.  With a 6+ octave range, a jazz scat that is Ella worthy, and a richness to her tone reminscent of days gone by when a singer actually sang, Tj has stood in, with, behind and for notables such as Chaka Khan, Raheem DeVaughn, Whitney Houston.  She has been in the hallowed trios found on the Grammys, Bet Honors, and American Idol.  She has had her face on the small screen in The Parenthood, and the Jumbotron supporting Mary J Blige. Her impromptu solo's have been some of the most watched on Youtube of all supporting vocalists, most notably her rendition of "Summertime" in the set with Lalah Hathaway in which you hear every high and low of her beautiful instrument in all of it's Glory. And most recently, you have been blessed by her soaring vocals on this season of "Dancing With The Stars"

    Join me as I sit and talk with Tj about the industry for the support vocalist.  In the wake of "20 Feet from Stardom", the Oscar winning, highly acclaimed docudrama featuring the true pioneers of this craft, we will talk about how it is in the industry now versus then, what to expect when you are on the road, her future career  as a solo artist, writing ventures and more!

    Call in!  She is also one of the most noteworthy vocal technicians in the game and we will have the lines open for questions!

    in Self Help

    LIVE ON NFTS - : IronE Singleton - Blindsided by the Walking Dead ... an inspirational biography about hope, triumph against the odds and inspired divine guidance along the way...

    IronE Singleton is best known to audiences as the menacing kingpin Alton in the Academy® Oscar Award-nominated film THE BLIND SIDE; the biggest box office grossing sports movie of all time. He is also known as the compassionate tough guy, T-Dog, in the Emmy, AFI & WGA Award winning, Golden Globe nominated tv show THE WALKING DEAD; one of basic cable's highest rated shows for viewership. IronE's unusual name depicts his life story, his ability to play strong, multidimensional characters and has made him a memorable actor in both film and television.On the streets of Atlanta, the fight to survive is a daily battle.  From the drug-infested corners of one of the city's worst housing projects, to alleyways filled with ravenous zombies-- Blindsided by the Walking Dead examines one man's battle to overcome the violence, drugs, and crime of the 'hood; starting with a young IronE Singleton determined to succeed despite an abusive mother, an absent father, and the temptations of instant gratification inherent with the thug life. Football and Faith in God become IronE's allies in his quest to escape and helped him reach for the lights of the University of Georgia's football field and theater stages. After years of struggle--failed businesses, small roles, and an ill-fated trip to Los Angeles--IronE snags his major breakthrough role, playing the kind of drug-dealing, gun-toting thug he would have become on the streets, in The Blind Side.

    Miss Crazy Band - Lead Singer Markus Allen Christopher

    in Self Help

    In this very special show, I'll be chatting with the leader singer of the KICKASS rock band Miss Crazy!!! Ronnie Borchert aka Markus Allen Christopher has become a friend of mine and now will be rockin on my show!!!


    Miss Crazy's sound is a collection of the best rock bands of the 80's, part Def Leppard, part AC/DC, part Cinderella, part Ratt, all of what real rock fans loved about the music that ruled the airwaves over two decades ago.


    A generation ago, historic rock artists like Alice Cooper, David Bowie, and KISS showed your parents that they were not living in the 50's or 60's anymore. These legacy bands incorporated stunning imagery and stage theatrics to elevate the standards of rock performance worldwide. Many 90's bands like Marylin Manson, Slipknot and AFI continued the tradition in spirit, while blazing their own sonic trails. Now, a generation later, Miss Crazy arrives on Earth to reignite the flame of hard rock while honoring the visual standards set by their forefathers. Expertly produced by Ronnie Borchert, Miss Crazy is bringing the sound of excitement back to jaded music fans around the world. Your parents might compare Miss Crazy to their old favorites like Def Leppard, AC/DC, Kix, or Cinderella. However, kids today won't have anything to compare Miss Crazy to! No other major band today sounds like Miss Crazy! We welcome you to the Miss Crazy family here on MySpace and hope you enjoy the free streams of music. Add us to get updates on all the M!SS Crazy happenings and special downloads of unreleased songs.
