    Just Saying! In this episode Books to Movies - Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

    in Entertainment

    This episode's theme is on one of my favorite book series - The Mortal Instruments. I will be reviewing the cast selection, translation from book to movie plot points, and the overall future of the series (if there can even be any).

    I love the fantasy fiction that is out there these days, but it does not always get its fair shake in the move to movies. This review will help people understand the themes involved, and hopefully peak the interest in those who may have been on the fence about seeing it.

    Much more than Nakoula Basseley Nakoula took one for the team!

    in Current Events

    Today Dakota discusses why the why of the Bengghazi attacks is so very, VERY vital.

    America's is the world's last stop on the way to a leftist, delusional, utopian, New World Order where government is God. 

    When a large group of people are so enamored with any given leader, the leader and his or her administration is able to infllict mortal wounds from within.

    In addition, the fact that more Americans are NOT staying the course where the way the Benghazi case was handled is not only tragic, but also frightening, damaging and even damning.

    The Consititution deserves justice as well as "Safe space" from which it can operate.

    > de facto world police by stating so unequivocally, "We will get the filmmaker." 

    Adamancy toward the end that savagery should ever be blamed on a film or any other artwork, hopefully will not become the

    catalyst that brings the world down.  I truly believe we should send all of America's progressive children to an impovershed area, perhaps war torn area of the Middle East to determine whether or not libs are incapable of being corrected via their own eyes - a firsthand account of hardly fair wages, the mistreatment of women, and freedom of speech and relgion.

    Guitars and More on the Voice of Joy

    in Spirituality

    If you can play guitar you have mastered music.  It takes devotion and dedication to hold on to those strings and come up with a note to be remembered and a thumb tough enough to endure.  Playing guitar is rewarding and a pleasure to accomplish.  Out of all instruments Ihave challenged the art of getting the sound I enjoy and please above all the God of gifts who mentored my self determination.  Come and join in on the Voice of Joy this Saturday and listen to some of my guitar friends.  If you can play a guitar you need to be with us this month and share your talent.  Thanks

    O-Naje with Conversation on Music,his path thur being a rapper and life goals

    in Pop Culture

    O-naje, which means “the sensitive one” in Swahili, is a Hip Hop artist from the Bay Area, California. While always staying true to the core values of Hip Hop (love, peace and having fun), his music is also infused with elements from Soul, R&B and Jazz. An alleged distant cousin of Blues legend, Muddy Waters and member of a family where everyone plays instruments or sings - you could say music runs through his blood.

    Initial Reaction on the Assassination of Malcolm X

    After Malcolm made his pilgrimage to Mecca, completing a triumphal tour of Africa and the Near East, during which he received the high honors of visiting dignitary, he returned to the U.S.A. and set about building his newly found Organization of Afro-American Unity.  He established the Muslim Mosque, Inc., to receive the Muslims he thought would pull away from Elijah. The Muslim Mosque would teach Orthodox Islam, under the direction of Sheik Ahmed Hassoun from the Holy City of Mecca.  Grand Sheik Muhammad Sarur Al-Sabban, Secretary General of the Muslim World League, had offered the services of Shei Ahmed, help Malcolm X in his efforts .......
    "So now Malcolm is no more. The boot lickers, Uncle Toms, lackeys, and stooges of the white power structure have done their best to denigrate Malcolm, to root him out of his people's heart, to tarnish his memory.  But their million-worded lies fall on deaf ears.  As Ossie Davis so eloquently expressed it in his immortal eulogy.   "If you knew him you would know why we must honor him: Malcolm was our man hood, our living, black manhood!  This was his meaning to his people. And, in honoring him, we honor the best I ourselves..... However much we may have differed with him -----or with each other about him and his value as a man, let his going from us serve only to bring us together, now.  Consigning these mortal remains to earth, the common mother of us all, secure in the knowledge that we place in the ground is no more now a man---but a come forth again to meet us. And we will know him then for what he was and is ---- a Prince ------our own black shining Prince!----- who did n't hesitate to die, because he loved us so." Ossie Davis 
    We shall have our manhood. We shall have it or the earth will be leveled by our attempts to gain it." SOUL ON ICE, by ELDRIDGE CLEAVER
