    Wanda's Picks Radio Show: Mighty Real: The Sylvester Story @ Brava

    in Art

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    Scottscope Talk Radio 5/16/2015: Roaring Down Fury Road!

    in Entertainment

    On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, we’ll be reviewing Mad Max: Fury Road!  Is it really as good as critics are saying?  Has George Miller outdone himself this time?  Can it stand proudly alongside the likes of Mad Max 2?  Does it raise the bar for action/adventure films?  Is Tom Hardy a worthy successor to Mel Gibson?  Should Fury Road be looked at as a reboot, or sequel?  Does it continue the saga of Max Rockatansky as we have always known him, or is it a new beginning?  Does the film promote a feminist agenda, or should it merely be taken as post-apocalyptic action yarn?  Should George Miller be counted among the greatest action filmmakers of all time?


    We’ll also be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Rambo: First Blood Part II!  How does it stack up to the original First Blood?  How did it end up becoming more iconic than its predecessor?  Just what were James Cameron’s contributions to John Rambo’s second outing?  Was the character misappropriated by the Reagan/Bush administration?  Did Stallone always intend for him to be a rugged individualist instead of a Right Wing icon?  What does the future hold for America’s most iconic one man army?   We discuss. 


    We’ll also be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Amerikkka’s Most Wanted!  Is it the greatest solo debut of all time?  Was it the primary influence behind Ready to Die and Good  Kid, M.A.A.D City?  Is it the single greatest gangsta rap album ever made?  Did Ice Cube and the Bomb Squad create a blueprint that every single rapper since has followed?  Was it embraced by the east coast solely due to the Bomb Squad’s involvement?  Will we ever see it’s like again?

    Sue Monk Kidd joins Susan Wingate for a chat on Dialogue Between the Lines

    in Books

    Sue Monk Kidd is an author to be revered. Her work has inspired generations past and her novels inspire other authors to strive for the perfection Kidd reaches in each of her stories. 


    Sue Monk Kidd was raised in the small town of Sylvester, Georgia, a place that deeply influenced the writing of her first novel The Secret Life of Bees. 


    When her first novel, The Secret Life of Bees, was published by Viking in 2002, it became a genuine literary phenomenon, spending more than 2½ years on the New York Times bestseller list. It has been translated into 36 languages and sold more than 6 million copies in the U.S. and 8 million copies worldwide. Bees was named the Book Sense Paperback Book of the Year in 2004, long-listed for the 2002 Orange Prize in England, and won numerous awards. For over a decade, the novel has been produced on stage by The American Place Theater, and in 2008 it was adapted into a movie by Fox Searchlight, which won the People’s Choice award for best movie and the NAACP Image award for best picture. It is taught widely in middle school, high school, and college classrooms.


    Kidd’s second novel, The Mermaid Chair, has sold well over a million copies since its publication by Viking in 2005 and reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.


    The Invention of Wings, Kidd’s third novel was published January 7, 2014 by Viking to wide critical acclaim. It debuted on the New York Times bestseller list at #1 and remained on the hardcover fiction list for over six months. It has been translated into 20 languages, thus far. The novel was chosen for Oprah’s Book Club 2.0. Plans are underway to turn the book into a film.


    She lives in Southwest Florida with her husband.
