Karama Horne (a.k.a. - “the blerdgurl”) is a freelance commercial video editor by day and comic book reading, anime watching, TV live tweeting, K-Pop listening, blog writing, superhero geek gurl by night. On a mission to shine a light on both characters and sequential artists of color, she provides commentary, reviews and interviews on her popular tumblr and official website theblerdgurl.com.
One of her most popular posts, “25 Reasons Why You’re Not Making Money at Comic Cons” went viral in 2015 and received over 23K pageviews in 3 days. She has been quoted on popular media sites like Comics Alliance, Comic Book Resources and The Beat. Her writing has been featured on Black Girl Nerds, The Mary Sue and PeepGame Comix.
When Karama’s not writing or editing, she’s fixing up her century old brownstone in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn that she shares with her two cats who plot her demise daily. You can find the blerdgurl on twitter, facebook, instagram and tumblr.
Kristin and Michele have a full slate of topics tonight, including Super Bowl 50 - what was good, what was bad and of course, commercials we loved.
Tonight we welcome A Sea Of Blue's Kelli McDowell (@kellibeth). Kelli has covered most of UK Hoops' games this season, so we will get her thoughts & Insights on the season thus far & how she views Coach Mitchell's chances of finally getting over the hump & getting the Cats to a Final Four.
UL self-imposed a post-season ban. Was this fair to the players? If not, how would you suggest the school handle the situation? We want to hear YOUR views.
Friday was the unveiling of the new UK logo & "secondary" logo. As expected, this was received by fans with very mixed results. Love it, hate it or just don't care? Let us know how you feel!
After a stinging loss (giving up a 21 point lead for crying out loud!), the Cats bounced back in a big way on Saturday when they stomped the Gators. Kristin and Michele were there covering the game for CMR and will give you their eyewitness account of the events.
As always, we will have talk about UK Hoops and lots more college basketball happenings. Call in and have your views heard: 646-716-4741
Kathleen Wirt has owned and operated the legendary 4th Street Recording studio in Santa Monica, California for twenty-seven years, and has been the sole owner since 2001. Listed by The Hollywood Reporter as one of - LA's Temples of Sound - and as one of the - Top 10 US Studios Under $100 an Hour - 4th Street features vintage analog equipment and a floating tracking room encased in sand.
In the early years, Kathleen was unwilling to allow the studio to sit empty when it was not booked, so she read the trades and frequented clubs, offering spec deals to bands that seemed promising. As 4th Street's client base grew and the studio gained in reputation, people credited not only the skills of its producers and engineers, but also Kathleen's scouting and promotion.
Twenty-seven acts have been signed to record deals through 4th Street Recording, starting with Fiona Apple, whose spec deal recording of - Shadowboxer - became the first single on her Grammy-nominated multi-platinum album -Tidal. Next came Incubus, Alien Ant Farm, and Hoobastank, all to become platinum-selling artists. The most recent is The Neighbourhood, whose 4th Street EP led to their signing to Columbia and a double-platinum radio hit, - Sweater Weather.
Kathleen is a member of NARAS, and is the Vice President of Los Angeles Women in Music. She also works to discover and nurture production careers through 4th Street Recording's internship program, which has helped launch the careers of many young producers and engineers.
