    About the Book:
    The beloved and respected Emperor John Cardillion IV is dead. His four sons, a Cleric, a Fighter, a Magic User and a Thief/businessman, all intend to destroy each other to rule the Palamaran Empire. Earl Thomas Medford, the Lord Chancellor, intends to win the impending civil war and marry his daughter off to the next Emperor. Which brother to choose because all four are greedy, selfish, despicable megalomaniacs?

    Actor Troy Bland joins GD on A Touch of Grace

    in Entertainment

    (S6E3) G|D Welcomes...


    Actor - Troy Bland from Macon, GA 


    Date: Monday May 18th, 2015 @ 2P/PST : 5P/EST 


    Call Into Show: (347) 989-8346


    More About Troy: 


    Journey of an Emerging Actor


    His very first acting experience came at the age of 15. He was in his neighborhood production of, 'The Wiz', where he also co-directed, choreographed, did the set designs, and played as the Tin Man. A production that many from the old neighborhood still remember to this day with fondness.


    Troy began his theater studies at City College of New York, but because of his "spiritual" calling and wanting to do something in service to people, decided to relocate to Macon, GA. where he would later become an ordained minister.


    This turned out to be a great move for Troy because Atlanta, being a short distance from Macon, was itself a city emerging as the South's new entertainment mecca. The city was attracting filmmakers because of the great weather conditions and cheaper budget costs to make films.


    Once settled in Macon, Troy began honing his acting skills on stage in the production of, "Oh Lord, Not My Mother?" at the historic Douglas Theater.

    Stacks on Deck; Black Fundraising and Philanthropy

    in Culture

    For many years we have discussed the effects of widespread capitalism as a root cause of the current conditions of black folks in America. From chattel slavery to the institutions that were built and created as a result of free capital. With black buying power reaching over $1 trillion dollars, it’s time that we reexamine capitalism through the lenses of fundraising/philanthropy for ourselves to see the institutions and impact that will change our conditions.  By pooling our dollars together, fundraising for our causes, we can change the way that we’re viewed and the physical environments that we dwell in.

    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?
