Originally from Houston, Tx I am just a creative soul that now resides in Atlanta, GA. The only freedom we can attain lies in our ability to be happy with our own artistic expression whatever that may be. Mine just so happens to be music. Here is my canvas listen along as I paint my own personal master piece.
Richy Forbes (AKA Mr International) is representing the island of Turks & Caicos, Miami and Nigeria, and as a result his sound is a refreshing blend of Afro, R&B and Hip-Hop. His boisterous personality shines through within seconds on every performance and is backed up by his lyrical bravado. Not shy to deliver a heartfelt melody, he expresses themes of love, pain and prosperity. Producer So Special Kay on the other hand is the mellow crooner of the two giving every song a touch of soul. His vocals stretch from sweet to street on demand, painting each track with an unique contrast. This however works to a charm since he also produces each song, allowing their vocals to fit right at home in the music. The two both based in London, UK, have collaborated on a series of songs, most recently R&B throwback “Never”, and hip-hop club banger “Mirror”. Both of these have received good reception at shows, and created a level of buzz for the two acts.

The "evolution" of this dog still astounds me today. Never has a breed of dog spend so much time in the spotlight from the best to the worst. Ever wonder why? I mean truly wonder why??? Sadly we as the human race are completely to blame. I'm talking you, me, your/my friends, your/my family, our neighbors, good people, bad people, you name it. If they walk on two legs they are the cause of these wonderful dogs' demise. And while it is too easy to blame the "dog fighters" or the "drug dealers" or even "gang members", truth be told, the majoriy of "problem Pit Bulls" we see are victims of irresponsible owners who did not educate themselves enough about the breed and are in complete denial of the truth behind these magnificent dogs. Join me in this 1 1/2 hour controversial special as I shoot straight from the hip and probably piss alot of people off :)
Today on BR on the World we cover Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Unlike the WTO or other multilateral trade bodies, APEC has no treaty obligations required of its participants. Decisions made within APEC are reached by consensus and commitments are undertaken on a voluntary basis,21 members - referred to as "member economies" - which account for approximately 40 percent of the world's population, approximately 55 percent of world GDP and about 44 percent of world trade. Member Economies are Australia; Brunei Darussalam; Canada; Chile; People's Republic of China; Hong Kong, China; Indonesia; Japan; Republic of Korea; Malaysia; Mexico; New Zealand; Papua New Guinea; Peru; The Republic of the Philippines; The Russian Federation; Singapore; Chinese Taipei; Thailand; United States of America; Viet Nam.
There are definitely some perks in having your own reality show especially when you're trying to raise funding for the most notorious breed of dog in the world. The TV show raises awareness to the cause and allows us to educate those that otherwise would be following the the absurd words of news reporters, insurnace underwriters and ignorant landlords. Of course having a show now getting ready to go into it's 7th season, also helps with getting dogs homes that otherwise would stil be sitting in our kennel. But.....there is a flip side. Having an internationally recognized TV show also brings out the crazies, the obsessed and thousands upon thousands of emails and phone calls to take unwanted or dogs in need of help. I will go behind the scenes with not only our TV show but what goes on behind the closed doors of the rescue and give you the dirty details of life on the (Animal) Planet.
With so much fuss over being the "leader of the pack" or making sure you're the "alpha"....I have to chuckle.... okay and maybe shake my head in embarassment for those that actually fall for it. Unfortunately this hype and "technique" can be unsafe to the human and unwelcoming to the poor canine. And all this "scruff 'em to the ground" crap is nothing more than a product of self appointed TV doggie evangelists and their uneducated, Kool Aid drinking disciples. Learning from wolves as I did, was not only an honor but such a gift from Mother Nature and one that no price tag could be put on. With the lessons I learned from these mystical yet persecuted animals, I learned that not only were they the most heirarchical and sophisicated canine alive, their gentle leadership qualities were beyond anything that any human could've ever taught me. Learning from the true "alpha leaders"...something I will always cherish. And while we're on the subject of wolves, tonight you I will let you on a little dark yet interesting secret about me. It will definitely be one of those "Ah-Ha..." moments and everything will suddenly make sense :) So.....Fang up! :)
