  • Interview with Brian Babb

    in Spirituality

    "Write with your eyes like painters, with your ears like musicians, with your feet like dancers.  You are the truthsayer with quill and torch. Write with your tongues on fire."  - Gloria Anzaldua



     


    "The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life."  - Jane Addams


    "Never question what I am God knows/Cause it's coming from the heart"  - Chuck D


        Shaman and dear friend to Brian, Michael Dove discusses that which is "sacred" as being that which is essential to life.  Essential to the vitality of Brian's life are the sources, essences, and forces of love, empathy, compassion, and liberation.  It is this dynamic sacredness that impels Brian personally and professionally.  


        Brian is a poet, spoken word artist, and emcee from San Diego, CA.  He engages his artistry with a determination to interrelate and transform the human and divine, sorrow and joy, hurt and healing, and oppression and freedom.  Brian composes, records, and performs his artistry with the urgency of attending to an abandoned child's adoption, an institution's practice of discrimination and brutality, and our Mother Earth's rising temperatures.  In witnessing his artistry, audiences experience the texture of beckoning and forging self love, the Beloved Community, and communion with Source.  For more than a decade Brian has performed on stages throughout the country at countless open mics, poetry slams, schools, colleges and universities, music festivals, and neighborhood and community events.

    Feb. 21, 2015 10pm PST - Eerie America Travel Guide & America's Scariest Places

    in Paranormal

    Eerie America could very well be called The Fodor’s Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. This is a series of travel documentaries geared towards educating people on the unique historic locations, fun facts, and promote tourism to some of the most incredible spots across the nation. Eerie America’s special niche is in defining and exploring Dark Tourism - which celebrates the macabre, the unusual, and the strange. Dark Tourism will serve to demystify the “demon in the dark” while retaining its intellectual allure. Where are these places and what are they? They can be found in every city, town and village throughout the nation, often hiding in plain sight. From bizarre dining experiences at The Jekyll & Hyde Restaurant and Bar to overnight stays at a the Lizzy Borden Bed and Breakfast murder scene and everything in between, Eerie America will shine a light on those secluded places across our vast country. Like a documentary, occasionally special celebrity guests who have knowledge about a topic or location will make an appearance, such as special guests author Rosemary EllenGuiley, MONSTER Quest's Ken Gerhard, Paranormal State's Michelle Belanger, Haunted Encounters Daniel Hooven and many others!

    And the Rest is History w/ Blacketer

    in Books

    For those of you who love historical fiction, And the Rest is History is the show you won’t want to miss.


    Historical author Brita Addams hosts an hour-long show on the last Tuesday of each month, starting at 3pm Eastern, 2pm Central. She’ll pick the brain of an author of historical fiction, and try to get them to divulge all the secrets they use to bring us the wonderful stories they write. Join us for an in depth discussion that can range from crafting historicals in a particular time period to what it takes to create something that authentically represents the time period. Authors spend a great deal of their time in the past and we are the lucky recipients of the fiction they write. This show will give readers the opportunity to ask questions and to get to know their favorite authors.


    Featured today, author Kirsten Blacketer. Stick her in the middle of a chaotic home with two children, a hyperactive dog, and a camouflage wearing husband, and she can cook and clean with the best of them. Her characters creep forth from the dark recesses of her mind taking their places in the castles and forests built from her words. No simpering heroines linger there with forlorn gazes turned to the horizon, waiting for their Prince Charming. They straighten their spine, arming themselves with blade and bow, prepared to do their part in defense of their honor and destiny. She breathes life into the women she believes our ancestors to be, showing how they lived and loved with passion and grace.


    Never bored by the tales still left to tell, she battles the ever sarcastic muse in her quest for romance.
