    Ase Is A Word Without Meaning?

    in Education

    All acronyms are interchangeable and sometimes a word is just a WORD (without real definition)
     
    I want to make a comment on the word "Ase" in which I (Amber Kelly) present it. the usage of the word is subjective to the person using it and depending on the person receiving a belessing to hear the word from that person or any person or weather they have the right to judge weather it is just a word or not is the reason for my response to the opinon.

    Meet the creator of Ofo Ase (the powers of the word) by Poetic Soul

    in Poetry

    Poetic Soul first made a name for himself on Atlanta's poetry scene at the infamous Patti Hut Café. As a breeding ground for up-and-coming word artists, Patti Hut had developed a reputation for a spot for “intimate poetry”. 
    This is where he fine tuned his craft and skills in front of an audience of 100 plus. After joining the Atlanta based  poetry troupe called Klub Kummba and getting a feel for the Atlanta open mic scene.  Poetic Soul's career as a writer gained momentum, so did his work as a poet. "[My poetry] is about making things matter. Making those invisible, intangible ideas and dreams, things that you can touch, that you can feel," he said. So far he has done this in his new book of poetry " OFO ASE'  (the powers of the word). . Soul acknowledged the privilege he felt at being able to share his poetry on stage and in literary form. "To be a young poet and publish books is quite a blessing, because publishers print poetry like churches sing hymns--to maintain some sort of traditional stance," he said.  In the spring of 1995 his first self published book of poetry hit the streets  entitled  "Bullets & Blood", which was  distilled from seven years of journal writing. He went on to produce six more books of poetry (1997) The River Is Overflowing With Words, (2000) Love Serenade, (2008) The Son Of A Warrior Griot, (2009) Lovin U, (2010) Ubran Griot and (2012)

Trust me, if you didn't watch it yet, you'll definitely want to do that because spoilers are coming in this podcast.


    Also, as we get to the NBA All-Star break, we'll finally get into some real NBA thoughts, including if the Golden State Warriors can keep pace with the '96 Bulls...and if they realize the San Antonio Spurs are hot on their heels.

    In this edition of All Subjects Everything, we'll discuss the much-anticipated (yawn) return of the National Football League to the CIty of Angels and what it means for the team (or teams) left out, the jilted city (or cities) being left behind and some overall thoughts on sports playing a not-so-subtle role in the evil known as gentrification.


    Also, we'll talk a bit about the Elle magazine piece written by a Black woman who feels the hashtag/movement "Black Girl Magic" is problematic. We'll talk about why that's a foolish line of thinking and why the actual movement matters.

    Monday Mornings With ASE

    in Lifestyle

    We've been off for about 3 weeks, but it's back to business. All Subjects Everything returns with a recap of Super Bowl 50, from beginning to the bitter end.


    We'll also remember the great Maurice White, the founder and leader of one of the greatest bands of all-time Earth, Wind and Fire. White passed away last week after a battle with Parkinson's Disease, so we'll remember the man and the impact he had on music.


    Lastly, a personal rememberance from Chris of a great journalist and friend gone way too soon. Chris will talk about Michael Feeney is responsible for his start and journalism and why his loss will be felt for as long as the rest of us are here on Earth.

    Mondays With ASE

    in Lifestyle

    In this edition of All Subjects Everything, we start our Christmas week shenanigans with some thoughts on the mythical HBCU football national championship game, the Celebration Bowl - the game itself, the possible introduction of the next HBCU-bred NFL standout and this possibly being a good thing after all.


    Also, we'll discuss the Miss Universe pageant - not so much the pageant itself, but more about the mistake Steve Harvey made and how he's not alone in calling out the wrong name.

    ASE Thursdays

    in Lifestyle

    In this edition of All Subjects Everything, we'll preview tonight's Bucs/Rams game featuring two high-profile candidates for Offensive Rookie Of The Year, Tampa QB Jameis Winston and Rams running back Todd Gurley III. Both have had fantastic years for teams who have needed a boost and we'll assess how this game could make the difference in voting for the award. Also, the Bucs have an outside shot at an NFC Wild Card spot, so that also makes this game watchable.


    We'll also talk about the mistrial of William Porter, one of the officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore earlier this year and what this probably means for the other 5 officers charged and the city as a whole.
