    At Eye Level - Live From Havana Cigars

    in Entertainment

    This week, we're live from the new location of Group Therapy Open Mic, Havana Cigars in Tustin, CA.
    Havana Cigars sells cigars and accessories and offers a smoking lounge for customers to sit and enjoy a variety of events. They carry a large selection of fine cigars with a huge walk-in humidor. Their cigars have been carefully selected to impress everyone from the most experienced cigar aficionado to first-timers looking for a new experience.
    After the show will be Group Therapy Open Mic, where you can "work out your issues" on our stage. So come out and smoke and joke with some of Orange County's finest up and coming comedians.
    We're also looking for singers, musicians and poets.   Sign ups start at 7:30; the booked show starts at 8 and the open mic is right after. Acts will get to perform for 5 to 10 minutes on a first come, first served basis. If you're on a roll you can keep going, but if you're bombing, we'll gently help you off.

    Film Maker Joshua Bee Alafia Chats About Havana Habibi

    in Entertainment

    In 2003, Tiffany Madera aka “Hanan,” enraged her Cuban family in Miami by getting on a plane to Havana to participate in an artistic exchange that led to the formation of Cuba’s first Arabic dance troupe; Grupo Aisha Al-Hanan. The troupe founded by hanan was composed of eight women at the University of Havana’s History Department.  A live band of musicians shortly followed from Havana’s colorful and diverse music scene. Guided by hanan, Grupo Aisha Al Hanan; quickly gained notoriety around Cuba despite its departure from State- Sanctioned Culture and Art models. A grassroots cultural movement ensued which had a profound impact on many lives across the globe.


    For Hanan’s family, her returning to Cuba was like an act of support for the Communist Revolution that drove them from their island to Miami. Havana Habibi begins three years later following Hanan’s visit to Havana for the International Dance Festival and workshops with Grupo Aisha Al-Hanan.  We meet the ensemble and see the sacrifices they make to create their art.


    Havana Habibi looks at the cross cultural exchange and intermigration between Africa, Cuba, Spain and the USA; what it means to be a Cuban Bellydancer in Revolutionary Cuba as well as the Cuban Diaspora and travels throughout time, geography and space to tell the human story behind Revolution and geo-political Identity through the sensual metaphor of Bellydance.  


    Jason Bee Alafia joins me to discuss this critically acclaimed documentary film.

    Hard Starboard Radio: The Brooklyn Shootings & The Oklahoma City Bombing

    in Politics Conservative

    How the Brooklyn shootings are like the Oklahoma City bombing; Is Bill de Blasio’s political career over?; Meanwhile, down in Washington, er, Havana, um, Hawaii; Seems like only one side in American politics is ready for guilt-by-association accusations; Which side of the aisle is more racist than the other? It’s not even close; and the Left finally finds itself on the receiving end of "guilt collectivization," may they never get out from under it.
