F4F Radio rings in the new year with a discussion of lesbian subtext in modern television - a topic I’ve wanted to discuss since before the start of 2012! Before the late 1990s, when fandoms began popping up with canon lesbian pairings on shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Xena: Warrior Princess”, “Once and Again” and “Babylon 5”, gay characters typically lacked a screen presence beyond the “very special episode”. Today, more network and cable programs seem to be recognizing the appeal of lesbian and bisexual women on the small screen. Yet for every canon lesbian couple with a fan following, it seems like there are many more pairings based on subtext. Sometimes, it even seems like these are MORE popular. As gay and straight audiences, rightly or wrongly, perceive subtext more and more on their TV, we begin to ponder questions like, how much subtext is REALLY there? Are shows intentionally using subtext to pull in lesbian audiences without actually giving them maintext? Can fan followings of subtext couples potentially shift storylines in a maintext direction? We’ll be discussing these kinds of questions in a general context, but we’ll also focus on 4 shows in particular – “Rizzoli & Isles”, “Once Upon a Time”, “The Good Wife”, and “Warehouse 13”. I’ll be joined by a panel of three past guests who between them have written memorable femslash fanfic for all four programs – Adm_Hawthorne, Heartsways, and Sweetjamielee. That’s a lineup you can’t miss!
#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, October 2, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT), with the #TChat Twitter chat right after from 7-8 pm ET. Last week we talked about the rub of transparency and privacy in the workplace between employer and employee, and this week we're talking about engaging the dark side of workplace effectiveness. Yes, the dark side. Contemporary organizations focus on trying to maintain upbeat hyper-positive work ecologies. Anger has to be managed; depression requires medication; shame becomes a disciplinary tool; guilt is the subtext of the employee manual; grief is allotted three days; family crises are never lunchroom conversations. What if the key to maximum effectiveness was the celebration of these dark emotions and moods? What if we recognized that each of the darker, unacceptable emotions were treasure troves of insight and results? What if organizational adaptability depended on employing the full person not just the razor thin, Prozac enhanced person? What if indeed. Let's discuss. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guests: John Sumser, the founder and editor-in-chief of the HRExaminer Online Magazine and the principal of Two Color Hat; and William Tincup, the CEO of HR consultancy Tincup & Co. and a leading thinker on social media application for HR and an expert on adoption of HR technology. This will be another important #TChat show about engaging the world of work's dark side, so join us!
Join Host David Ornette Cherry Tuesday night August 13th, 2013. 9PM pacific time 12AM eastern time. He will interview Waberi Jordan. Waberi voice emerges as an 'Old Soul' in the evolving world of today's jazz and cross-genre music. Waberi takes center stage with her transcendent voice and intimate song craft as the promise of a continued grand Black American Classical music (read JAZZ) legacy. Waberi’s voice resonates in an alter-reality... beautiful, a haunted timbre; that has many likening her to Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln or early Cassandra Wilson. But the comparison is not solely in the sound of her voice, but the legacy she embodies. Born in Washington D.C., and raised in the last great Black American Classical Music enclave in Los Angeles, Leimert Park, Waberi has studied and/or played with Pharoah Sanders, Azar Lawrence, Big Black, Nate Morgan, and Bennie Maupin among some; Los Angeles based Jazz Ensemble Build An Ark, The Pan Afrikan People's Arkestra & The Great Voice of UGMAA (Union of God's Musicians and Artists' Ascension) with world-renown avant-garde pianist Horace Tapscott - and The GREAT Billy Higgins. As a songwriter, her lyrics are at once prosaic and deeply poetic in their simple truth. Her lyrical subtext is reflective of diverse story- masters like Marvin Gaye, Phoebe Snow or Sun Ra. Her songs are a shrine for Ancestral remains, sculpted around gently simmering jazz and blues ideals; instruments and voicings arranged to evoke a visceral response to a song, whether it be an original song or her expression of a classic Jazz standard. And she stays firmly rooted in NOW. David will also explore Organic Music and interacts with listeners on “Organic Nation”.
Now that F4F has not only marked its fourth anniversary of being on the air, but also entered its final month of broadcasting, we’ll be spending all of June celebrating that which made this program great. Don’t worry, no self-congratulation here, of course I’m talking about the guests. For each show in June, we’ll have on four (and occasionally five) guests who made at least one prior appearance to talk about what they’ve been up to since then. Maybe they’ve continued to write fanfic for the same television show. Maybe they’ve moved onto something new, and moved again. Maybe it’s original fiction now. Or maybe they’ve stopped writing altogether. We’ll also be returning to the show’s roots by hosting shows weekly instead of biweekly, so that’s sixteen former guests, each speaking for fifteen minutes at a time. Tonight we only have three guests so far, as one dropped out, but we're hoping to find a replacement before then. As of right now we begin with Sweetjamielee (who first appeared on F4F on 5/12/2011) at 10 PM EST, followed by BurningEden (8/6/09) at 10:15, and Dhamphir (2/25/10) at 10:45 PM. Tune in, because really, someone just might be talking about whatever thing you love best. And because after tonight, you might not have another chance.

At times, the Gentle Craft can seem anything but. I don't have problem with the wording; but I worry that judgements have been influenced by study of ethics and principles.
We seem fascinated by what we are not; obvious to notice was is lacking than what is present; but why is this personalized? Not exactly flattering but there you have it. Our behaviour suggests we seek out conflict, stiffly, with hubris, indifferent to the portrayal of freemasonry. This behaviour has been a preoccupation for decades- so I'm once again pointing out the obvious aren't I? In this very active humanist laboratory, unfortunately there is a "small F" within a "large F" Order. It puzzles me, that freemasonry seems uncomfortable with the diversification of process at the front that would cultivate and nuture, while tolerant of the back end where intellectual currency has been loosing value for a great long while.
If there is a a fine line between cricisism and comment in your mind, we can at least speculate if we have discovered a subtext. I'm reminded of the cautions we are taught about assuming casuality.
Join me as I raise the question with you, as I define a stream of thinking from the beginning to this very day- that caused our good friend Walter Leslie such concern and Grand Masters to remain silent on the subject.
Perhaps you will once again advise me on the issue that we have made benign because of our lack of ability- the je ne c'est quai that troubles leadership development. If we come together, we may reveal the secret.
Join Blogcritics Co-Executive Editor and Founder of Let's Talk TV for this look at how primetime TV taps into its more spiritual side. Whether overt or part of the subtext, Primetime TV drama often tackles the tricky subject of God, sometimes with grace, and sometimes rather clumsily. My guest Gerry Weaver and I will talk about several current and recent television series and how they deal with the subject of God: Supernatural, Stargate Universe, Eli Stone, Battlestar Galactica, even House
The New York Times ran a front-page piece Monday with the unmistakable subtext that Obama is a hyper-competitive egotist who often is not as good as he thinks he is at endeavors ranging from politics to poker.Politico As he faces off with Willard Romney, President Obama’s will to win — and fear of losing — is in overdrive. He is cramming for debates against an opponent he has called “ineffective,” raising money at a frantic pace to narrow the gap with Willar
F4F Radio has been discussing "Xena: Warrior Princess", even now enormously popular among fans of lesbian pairings on TV because of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship, every six months for the past two years. Looks like it's time for a fifth conversation, and appropriately enough we welcome back author/filmmaker Kim Pritekel, who has been involved with the last three Xena shows as either a guest or a cohost. Rather than focus on fan fiction or "uberfic" this time, however, tonight we'll be discussing the television show itself. Kim and I will be joined, not by Xena fanfic authors, but by three longtime fans of the show - Zea Apa, Kelly Neal and Adm_Hawthorne. And we'll be talking about EVERYTHING we loved most about the show, from the subtext to the story arcs to the comedy.
