    Bullies and Friends

    in Politics Progressive

    Bullies And Friends is the critically-acclaimed Documentary Film on bullying, slated for worldwide release. It profiles various bullying incidents, while focusing on the powerful true story of a 14 year-old girl named Dawn-Marie, who after being bullied and threatened with death by three girls at her high school, committed suicide. In the note she left behind, she named the three girls.  The incident sparked a landmark investigation that uncovered a subculture of girl bullying, and led to the precedent setting court case, where for the first time in North America, teens were made to stand trial for bullying.


    Bullies And Friends is groundbreaking in that it offers solutions to bullying to teens, parents, schools and communities through: teens involved in the incident including the poignant interview with the main teen girl brought to trial for bullying; interviews with the family of Dawn-Marie, the exclusive interview with the Judge who presided over the landmark trial and handed down the precedent setting ruling; townspeople and media who were affected by the tragedy, local government officials and educational and parenting experts.

    Milling About with Ted Neeley

    in Entertainment

    It's been 42 years since the original cast and crew of the 1973 film Jesus Chris Superstar have all been in the same room together, and tonight (April 27), Director Norman Jewison, Ted Neeley (Jesus,) Yvonne Elliman (Mary Magdalene,) Barry Dennen (Pontius Pilate,) and Josh Mostel (King Herod); to name a few, will reunite for a special screening at the Beekman theater in New York City.


    Getting the band back together so to speak would've happened much sooner for Ted whose boundless enthusiasm for what he calls his life-changing role has never left. He tells host Robin Milling, “I've been trying to get this reunion to happen since the film came out. I've been trying to get all of us together to do another production; if nothing else just to hang out for a few days. It's never happened until now. And the fact that we'll all be in the same place at the same time with Norman is a miracle!”


    Miracles have been known to happen in the life of Jesus Christ, but it almost didn't happen for Ted who reveals he almost missed out on being cast in the iconic role. He also tells Robin how he met his wife of over 40 years, Leeyan Granger on the set and how their two children have been happily following dad's adventures as a superstar.


    Most actors run from one role defining their legacy but Ted has embraced Jesus, still performing the role wherever and whenever he can; most recently touring Italy for a year. He says joyfully, “It completely changed my life, spiritually, personally. So why slap that in the face? And I still love it; every performance is like the first time all over again. That music starts to play and I just lift off the ground, 'ok take me wherever you want me to go!”

    Author Michael Brent Collings Novelist, Screenwriter, and Writing Instructor

    in Lifestyle

    Michaelbrent Collings is an internationally bestselling novelist, a #1 bestseller in the U.S., and has been one of Amazon's top selling horror writers for years. He is one of the most successful indie horror writers in the United States, as well as a produced screenwriter and member of the WGA, HWA, and several other writing groups with cool-sounding letters. He's also a martial artist, and cooks awesome waffles ('cause he's macho like that).

    He published his first "paying" work - a short story for a local paper - at the age of 15. He won numerous awards and scholarships for creative writing while at college, and subsequently became the person who had more screenplays advance to quarterfinals and semifinals in the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship screenwriting competition in a single year than anyone else in the history of the competition. 

    His first produced script, Barricade, was made into a movie starring Eric McCormack of TV's Will & Grace and Perception, and was released in 2012. Michaelbrent also wrote the screenplay for Darkroom (2013), starring Kaylee DeFer (Gossip Girl, Red State) and Elisabeth Rohm (American Hustle, Law & Order, Heroes). 

    As a novelist, Michaelbrent has written enough bestsellers that listing them seems weird, especially since they're already listed elsewhere on the website. In addition, he has also written dozens of non-fiction articles which have appeared in periodicals on several continents. 

    Michaelbrent is also a member of the WGA (Writers Guild of America) and the HWA (Horror Writers of America). In addition to selling, optioning, and doing rewrites on screenplays for major Hollywood production companies, he is currently developing several movies and television shows.

    Autumn, The Play Inspired by Former Newark Mayors, Cory Booker and Sharpe James!

    in Education

    Autumn, The Play Inspired by the Newark NJ Mayors Cory Booker and Sharp James!


    SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 2015 EXCLUSIVE: MNN's "The Gist of Freedom" Interviews of Richard Wesley and cast members! Mr. Wesley an Award-winning Playwright and Screenwriter talks about his new play, "Autumn"!
     
    Richard Wesley, whose hits include "Uptown Saturday Night" and "Let's Do It Again" which starred Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby and "The Mighty Gents" which went to Broadway.



    "Autumn," an absorbing new drama by Richard Wesley that probes the fragility of political legacies and human relationships, premieres at Crossroads Theatre Company April 23 through May 3.   
     
    "Autumn" is the first full-length stage play, since the premiere of Wesley's acclaimed work, "The Talented Tenth," in 1989, which looked at the lives of a group of Howard University graduates who were part of an emerging Black elite.  
     
    “I began thinking that there was a new generation of post-civil rights movement politicians emerging that was very different from the generation that came of age during the civil rights movement,” Wesley said. “There was a group of old-school politicians who found themselves wrapped up in political scandals; and right behind [them] were these younger politicians who were moving up.”
     
    Since 1995, Wesley has been an associate professor of dramatic writing at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he served as chair of the Rita and Burton Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing for eight years. He is a former vice president of the Writers Guild of America, East.
     
    Crossroads Theater Company is located at 7 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick. For tickets, call (732) 545-8100 or purchase online at crossroadstheatrecompany.org.

    Psychic Predictions Happening - Earthquakes and Cern and Psychic Questions

    in Spirituality

    My psychic predictions are happening.  I talked about Cern and the large hadron collider bringing dark matter and opening portals with demons coming out.  Nepal, India just had a devastating earthquake and volcano erupted in Chile.  The same time that the earthquake happened in Nepal, India is the same time that Cern was cranked up.  This is not a coincidence. 


    I also talked about civil unrest occurring in the USA.  Recent video confrims training our troops in VA for riots.  Civil unrest is coming.  A recent shooting occurred where a white cop shot a black unarmed man eight times in the back.  I watched the video several times and I feel it wasn't real.  I feel they were crisis actors and it's to start civil unrest.  We can't fall for this. My prayers do go out if this was real but in my heart I feel it wasn't.  Many other people who watched the video feel the same way. 


    I talked about Jade Helm 15 which is a military exercise to occur primarily  in the State of TX for eight weeks starting in July. 


    They refer to TX as a hostile State.  Why did they put up all these dorms in TX?  They call them storm shelters but they are so flimsy that they would never survive a hurricane.  I am picking up that these are going to be used for Fema camps. 


    I had visions of illnesses and pneumonia was so deadly this year. A close friend of mine who is healthy and always on the go got pneumonia and almost died.  He couldn't talk for weeks when he was hospitalized and it temporarily shut down his kidneys. It's a terrible strain.  He is recovering in a nursing home and will be discharged Tuesday. 


    Ebola will come back with a vengence. 


    I will also take your psychic questions. Contact me at mia0899cs@gmail.com for a detailed reading for $25.00.

    "Fantasy Freeway" ~ Setting a #DFS lineup for #NBAplayoffs and #MLB

    in Sports

    In this episode of the Fantasy Freeway, presented by The Red Light Sports Network, JA and Troy Otraodovec will talk about setting a daily fantasy line up for Major Leaue Baseball and NBA.  The Red Light Sports Network is affiliated with Draft Kings, therefore we will use the values from that that daily fantasy sports league.  If you are not playing, it is easy to join, click here http://partners.draftkings.com/aff_c?offer_id=124&aff_id=115449 and get started for as little as $5.  JA and Troy also have the Daily Dollar Challenge, were we put a dollar in the game, and the winner takes all.  If you want to be part of that everyday, send a tweet to @RedLightSports https://twitter.com/RedLightSports, and give us your Draft Kings screen name.  It doesn't matter if we have 2 players or 200, you join for a dollar and the winner takes all.


    How do you set your baseball lineup?  Sometimes playing daily baseball can seem like finding a needle in the haystack to get the perfect lineup.  There are so many players at so many positions.  What will try to do is break down who is hot right now, and who has gotten off to a slow start.  Once the season gets under way, the best players will tend to rise above the rest.  Join us live today and call the show with your thoughts on daily baseball.


    With the NBA playoffs underway, there will about two more months of competitive fantasy basketball.  How do you set your basketball lineup?  In the playoffs, you may be tempted to automatically drop $10k to get the best players, but make sure that you are getting value for your money.  Do you put value on the sixth man?  Listen in.

    Native actors to Adam Sandler, "Our dignity is not for sale!"

    in Culture

    In news making international headlines, several Native actors were told "If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,...", in response to their concerns of denigrating and racist portrayals of Native people. They left the production.
    Hollywood has long been known for stereotyping Native characters, or portraying the white hero who saves the day for the Natives as if they were incapable of overcoming insurmountable adversity.
    One Navajo actor, Loren Anthony, originally refused to participate in the film, but changed his mind when he was told a cultural consultant was hired to ensure a "tasteful representation" of Natives. They told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist he said. Other Native actors and actresses expressed their concern, but were ignored and told they should leave. When they left, including the consultant, the story went viral and was reported on CNN International.
    Critics say they should have expected anything different because it is satire. The definition of satire is:


    1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.


    2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.


    3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
    Netflix, who signed Sandler defended defended him, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."
    David Hill, Choctaw, says the producers has called back the consultant and those who left. We'll be speaking with David Hill and others about their experiences with this racial stereotyping. Please join us friday evening on Eaglemanz: Chahta Nation.
