5 Questions With….. Dallas Penn

August 28, 2012 1 comment

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us1. How has the internet changed the thinking of companies, artists and just the world in general?

The internet hasn’t changed the thinking of companies or artists.

Companies still want to make money off consumers and the internet gives companies access to learning what people want in their deepest dreams.

Artists still want to present their art to the most people who might find a connection (relationship) with the content the artists create and the internet gives these artists a more focused reach to the world.

The end result for companies and artists remains the same.  Artists still create.  Companies still exploit.

2. What prompted you to take your talents to the internets when you did so? And also tell us how long you’ve been in this space as well. Read more…

MYAMAZINROOTS.COM SHOWCASES FINE ART IMAGES OF ANCIENT AFRICAN KINGDOMS, EMPIRES AND CIVILIZATIONS

Nationwide(BlackNews.com) — New website, MyAmazinRoots.com, features fine art images of ancient Africa. The images debunk the stereotypical and racist views of Africa as a dark continent by showcasing Africa’s Ancient History through fine art.

The various paintings, drawing and illustrations have all been meticulously restored and enhanced over the past few years. Much of it has never been seen by most present day Africans and African Americans – yet Africa’s fine art and depictions of Africans in fine art has occupied space in some of the world’s most prominent museums abroad for centuries.

Ceditorial: Gold Diggers

October 31, 2011 Leave a comment

(Taken from the archives of TheCrusade.net-3/19/2003)
Today’s Ceditorial is on Gold digging, an art form perfected by many women, specifically in the entertainment and sports industry, and even in the corporate world. Why? That’s my question to the women (for lack of a better word!) who engage in this lifestyle. I mean, besides the obvious answers like security, being taken care of, not having to work, what else is there?

I had a conversation with a young lady yesterday and she greatly disappointed me when she mentioned she’s looking for a doctor or lawyer to take care of her, then explained that she was tired of going to school and having bad luck with men.

Mind you, she made the choices of the men she had relationships with. Most disappointing was the fact that she wanted to stay home and take care of the kids while he worked. That’s understandable, but why are you educating yourself so that someone can take care of you? You’ve just wasted all that time and money making yourself more marketable in the workforce instead of just linking up with a jock when you were in high school. If that was your plan, why waste time? Get ‘em while they are young and corruptible! Read more…

{My Four Sons} The Sorrowful Last Days of “Who Would Win In A Fight”

Post image for {My Four Sons} The Sorrowful Last Days of “Who Would Win In A Fight”

By DERRICK BARNES

I think, on average, that ten is the cut-off age.

It’s around that time that boys begin to almost completely lose the innocence that we secretly wish that they could retain a sliver of; you know, just enough to continue to be inquisitive, creative, and oozing with zeal and optimism. But not so much that they’ll be swindled, bamboozled, and hood winked by every Peter Popoff waiting around the corner.

Ten is the prepubescent calm before the pimply, metal-mouthed, squeaky voiced, embarrassing involuntary erection, peach-fuzzed storm. It’s before they start to believe that they can really take their old man; they’ll think they can beat you in a wrestling match, push-up and chin-up contests, they’ll think they can belch with a deeper and more manly presence. And probably, most disturbing, from what I’ve observed from my buddies with older, teen sons is that somehow, these little rascals start to believe that they know just as much as you do. Just months ago you were the coolest guy in their world. Now, you might as well be Steve Urkel’s drooling, cock-eyed, smelly step-brother, Lee Lee Urkel. Read more…
