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!

Ron Moultrie Saunders -- Photography
Ron Moultrie Saunders creates photograms: photographs that are made without the use of a camera. This 19th Century process has an immediacy, rawness and truth that is not found in images created with a camera. Ron layers natural and man-made elements such as water, plants and rope on the surface of silver-based photographic paper. The paper is exposed to light from an enlarger to create a shadowy silhouette image. Then, Ron lays other images on top of the photo paper and makes another exposure, which results in a collage effect.
ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 2nd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. This is the only national online survey of the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities to celebrate the arts.
We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 20 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing.
Not surprisingly: people love to attend art fairs and many travel long distances to do so. The overall conclusion is: Art is Alive and Well in America and attendance at the nation's shows is proof of that.
Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them and collect art. Find out which they have chosen as the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.
We'll share the survey answers on:
what makes a show "Best"
why people say they attend an art fair
how art fair goers find out about shows to attend
why they don't attend shows they used to love
how far they travel to art fairs
their suggestions for show organizers
Laura Berarducci from the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau also reports on the economic impact of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs in that community.
The mission of ArtFairCalendar.com is to promote the unique American tradition of art fairs by showcasing the events where art collectors find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fine work for sale and encourage the interaction of client and creator.

Michael Hutchence was the lead singer of the band INXS, a popular rock group in the 1980s and 1990s.
Michael Hutchence was born on January 22, 1960, in Sydney, Australia. In high school he formed the band The Farriss Brothers which became INXS. They released a self-titled debut album in 1980 which was a hit in Australia. They reached the American audience through heavy video rotation on MTV and their album Kick became a huge international hit. Hutchence was found dead by hanging in 1997.
Michael Kelland John Hutchence was born on January 22, 1960, in Sydney, Australia. A vibrant and sensual performer, Michael Hutchence was the lead singer of INXS, a popular rock group in the 1980s and '90s. The son of a makeup artist and a businessman, he spent part of his childhood in Hong Kong. Hutchence grew up listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, among others. In high school, he met keyboardist and guitarist Andrew Farriss, and the two became friends and bandmates. They formed a band with bassist Gary Beers. Later on, Farriss brothers, Tim, a guitarist, and Jon, a drummer, joined the group along with Kirk Pengilly, who played guitar and saxophone, forming what was then called the Farriss Brothers.
Formation of INXS
After high school, Hutchence went to Perth with the band and played in some clubs there without a lot of success. They returned to Sydney and renamed themselves INXS. Landing a recording contract, the group released its first self-titled album in 1980. The group's first hit in Australia was "Just Keep Walking," and with their powerful live shows, they began to attract quite a following. With elements of funk and new wave, the band had a distinctive sound. Hutchence's strong vocals also won people over. He had great charisma and sex appeal, with some comparing him to Mick Jagger or Jim Morrison.

She’s also a self-taught artist and author of The Art of Mistakes.

Rev. Corbie Mitleid is a Certified Psychic and Member of the American Association of Professional Psychics. “
She has investigated different ways of teaching, counseling and healing since 1973. In 1994, working on some past life investigations proved to be a catalyst for her own abilities. Without formal instruction of any kind, She found herself able to do hands-on healing work, distance energy work over the phone, and act as a liaison between discarnate entities and those of us currently in body. Corbie has proved to be a doorway Home for souls caught in the Grey Space—those who have died, but for one reason or another cannot get to the Light. And Corbie has found she had a talent for channeling souls.
What Corbie does now is a combination of those unexpected gifts and the more accessible tools I’ve found useful over the years. She continue to hone my skills; my certifications are testimony to the ongoing work. Her goal is to continue living the “examined life,” not only learning more technique, but also going within herself to eradicate fears, bias, judgment, ego—anything which can get in the way of unconditional love and compassion.

Before anyone knocks me or supports me on being on anyone's side, I'm just going to offer factual things about this man, that we all met way back when, during the GASH/PODCAST FROM HELL days, and when horror was arguably better.
Why? I don't like bullying, making fun, and pushing people down, to where they have to give up on things they love doing, especially if that is their hobby, love, and maybe even bread & butter. I feel bad, and ultimately it's not right to reduce anyone to such positions, no matter the bullshit behind it.
It hurts me to see people who stood for something good, noble, virtuous, and absolutely groundbreakingly genius, at least in its foundation, much like the ideas were initially right with EXORCIST 2: THE HERETIC,...and much like that movie, see something unravel and turn into a complete and utter disaster in the end. Sadly, some people who have a lot of talent and a lot to offer, suffer. They suffer due to misunderstandings and things blown out of proportion.
Such is the case with horror legend and icon, William Pattison aka Eric Morse.
We don't talk, and we're not besties, but that does NOT mean that I cannot feel for the guy, and nobody deserves to be picked on, bullied, and shunned, left to the mercy of the world (which it has none).
During unfortunate times, I want to offer that light. This show is that light, and hopefully to help the critics realize what a beautiful talented individual exists, underneath all the misunderstanding.
This also brings up the voluptuous, grand, big former goddess of horror that was truly, truly on her way up until something VERY BAD happened, and I feel terribly for her too.
--callers are welcome but NOBODY that may attack the guy or his reputation. (no drama)
TheTAPI Network is starting a late-night format with uncensored, no-holds-barred, live adult chat where we discuss an array of myths and misconceptions surrounding love and the melanin community. We don't "sip tea" in here...we marinate in our subject matter and simmer with observations, opinions, and thoughts until a conscious brew begins to percolate.
Join us tonight as we discuss the art of fellatio...to choke or not to choke? Put the kids to bed and come break it down with us. Are there health benefits to swallowing? Can it decrease the amount of anger in the black community? What man doesn't appreciate the ordeal of having his partner swallow his full load of self-esteem? Why are some women disgusted beyond belief at such an act? Is this why brothers go shopping for Becky? Call in and share your thoughts as we touch on deep throat issues in the bedroom...uncensored...
