    Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine 11/12/15 - Classic Anime and Hentai

    in Entertainment

    Birthing in the early 1960s with such works as Astro Boy and Gigantor, the art of Japanese animation arrived on domestic shores not long after. Things would change radically as we moved into the 1970s and such widely beloved cult series as Yamato (Star Blazers), Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets) and Macross (Robotech), even in their somewhat bowlderized and sanitized variants aired Stateside, blew the minds of kids accustomed to Hanna Barbera/Filmation/Warner Brothers style fluff with their comparative realism and mature themes (inclusive of such heady matters as interracial relationships, real-world style romances, character deaths and more)!

    Becoming a genuine underground cult craze among the youth of the 1990's, such late 70's/80's era space operas as Mospeada, Megazone 23, Dirty Pair and Bubblegum Crisis were joined by the syndicated television likes of Rumiko Takahashi (Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2), Akira Toriyama (Dragonball), Voltron and Naoko Takeuchi (Sailor Moon), opening the floodgates for a proliferation of anime magazines, late night/Saturday AM blocks on networks like TBS, TNT and Sci-Fi Channel, and entire stores dedicated to the sale of anime and related materials.  

    With the dawn of "meta" series such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, the "harem anime" (starting with Tenchi Muyo) and crossovers to the tabletop and videogame RPG (Slayers, Dragon Half, etc.), anime went from comparative obscurity and often isolated, small-scale fanbases to a global phenomenon overnight.  

    Join us as we talk the days of actual hand drawn, boundary-pushing animation, with nigh-adversarial relations between original language subtitle fans and the dubbing-only crowd, where fans would gather together based on a dawning appreciation of what remains many steps above the standard domestic, toddler oriented cartoon.

    Finding Josephine with Dionne Ford

    in History


    Dionne's search for her family history began at age 12, when she asked a simple question: Grandpa, are you white?  Her grandfather’s answer sent her on a lifelong journey to piece together a family story and reveal a not uncommon but often untold part of American history.  His  grandparents were a slave named Tempy Burton and her master, Col. W. R. Stuart. Three decades after she first learned of this interracial, Civil War-era duo, she found another one of their descendants. Dionne's family’s history includes masters and slaves, Confederates and Senators, preachers and entertainers.  

    Dionne Ford is a freelance writer and M.F.A. candidate at New York University. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, More, Ebony and other publications. Her essay for MORE on her family’s history won two magazine awards. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and two daughters and blogs about her family's history at FindingJosephine.com.

    Novelist L.V. Lewis turns up the steam on interracial romance

    in Books

    What does it take to write "laugh out loud funny and heart-poundingly sexy" multicultural romance? Join us as novelist L.V. Lewis talks about love, sex, alphas, and Jungle Fever Press.

    Growing up, L.V. Lewis wanted to be an internationally known rock star, but unfortunately, lived in the wrong part of the country to pursue that career (and neither American Idol nor The Voice were available then). An early love for the written word gave her the plan B she sought. Her career as a contract manager was not creative writing by a long shot, but it didn’t require her to spend the hundreds of thousands of dollars required for a law degree. It does pay the bills while she dabbles in the publishing world as an author on the evenings and weekends.

    LV lives in Florida with her husband. They are the parents of four children, three of whom don’t think they need their parents anymore, so they share their home with a sweet female German Shepherd and an alpha male Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix who thinks he rules the world.

    Her love for writing is only eclipsed by her love for her family. Some of her books are Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever and The Ghetto Girl Quadrilogy.

    What is colorism... and can black people be more exclusive to being discriminatory than others...

  • The Affects of Colorism in Our Society

    in Romance

    There are a variety of stigmas associated with the various shades of “black” skin, within the black culture itself! For example: “…she’s pretty for a dark skinned girl…or, she’s dark, but she got good hair...”Terms like: “high yellow, blue-black, burple, redbone…” these are all phrases and terms some folks use within the black community to describe different shades of black skin. Each respective shade has some associated stigmas. In many cases you’d think it was the 1940’s, 50’s, or 60’s, but no! This is still happening in 2015.
    What kind of psychological impact does it have on a person and the culture as a whole? What about the beautiful woman who is pretty and has a deep dark brown complexion? Should she be made to feel inferior because of her skin complexion? Or the guy that is perpetually told he is “soft or pretty” because he is light? Skin bleaching, over aggressive toxic behavior, the list goes on and on.
    This is not only happening in the black community, but other ethnic groups deal with ‘COLORISM.’ What affects do you think colorism has on society and on individuals?
