Or abnormal

...or abbynormal.*

*a 'Young Frankenstein' reference


Jokes, now.

Seriously...  no joke.

Perhaps,  your story is what inspired Mr. Coates to go in this direction with Black Panther.

If there's one thing I've never done is joke about how passionate you are about what you enjoy.

I've joked about things like 'wall of text' but that's about as far as it goes.

I cannot defecate enough on TNC.

And then this guy takes my Ufalme Wa Nyota...Kingdom of the Stars...idea which I introduced in Chapter 1 of my fanfic, and warps it into THIS crap?

[ this is the slice of conversation from the fanfic of mine called BLACK PANTHER IN: "EXPLANATIONS" that TNC clearly bit, and warped into total garbage...I wrote this in 2012:

Yeah, I've read that, too, Supreme.  :)

Perhaps,  Mr. Coates is paying homage to your work.

He does kinda look like Kirby's T'Challa, especially in the face.

I need DJ lessons. what type of turntable set is recommended?

Technic is the industry standard for DJs, Hype.

Something else comes to mind... everyone thinks and/or believes that CDs carry the best sound over vinyl.   Not true at all.  True audiophiles will tell you otherwise.

Check out these turntables priced point at $10, 000+.  Carries the 'best' sound that vinyl can deliver... with the right accessories, of course. :)

This one is just the pick up arm and needle setup priced point at $28, 000+

Vinyl records and traditional turntables are making a serious, serious comeback!
This level of detail cannot be achieved with a electronic CD player.  8)

And now with the passing of Rev. Billy Graham, I have similar feelings about his legacy.


That evil white man kept an entire generation of African-Americans from the jim crow era hypnotized, my grandmother included.

I saw this.
If the animation is top notch, then this will be a hit!

I understand Disney is a part of this project so it's safe to assume that the animation will, indeed, be top notch.

And even though itís 2018, and weíre all getting old, nothing like this has ever been done before. I found myself fighting back tears several times throughout the film and moments that I donít think were even supposed to be emotional. It was just so damn beautiful.

I gotta go see this movie!  :)

ADDENDUM:  As this teen/parents protest in Florida unfolds, John Singleton's 'Higher Learning' immediately comes to mind. 'Higher Learning' told a very similar story.

What is the appeal for American Black folk, in period pieces? No matter where in history you go you are gonna end up looking at past misery. Which is not fun.

Welcome back!  :)
The appeal depends greatly upon the storyteller.

American Black folk's contribution to this country no matter how miniscule or monumental has always been paramount.

The misery you're describing is just another form of drama...  much like grief.  I mean, just observe the teen outrage that is  occurring in Tallahassee, Florida as I type this.

If you were a storyteller, how would you tell and/or dramatize that scene?

Meanwhile, 'round my way the local Barnes & Noble bookstore have added a whole new vinyl records inventory of current titles and re-issued classics for the last two years. 

...and was lucky enough to receive a genuine Technics turntable as a gift to play records on, so it's all good.  8)

Technology / Re: Anybody Have a Nintendo Switch Here?

If you enjoy playing games on a traditional I-Phone style device, you'll love the SWITCH.

If you enjoy playing games on a monitor plus traditional console,  you'll love the SWITCH.

Playtested DOOM on the SWITCH and was amazed how fluid the control and the action was; definitely matches the PlayStation Vita and better by being able to connect to a monitor (any scale).

Highly, highly recommend the SWITCH if you're a true gamer.  :)
