The Jordans finally made it to Pemberton Place near downtown ATL to see the recently opened National Center for Civil and Human Rights, where we have a commemorative plaque, and where you can experience things like the sit-in counter (surreal), actual handwritten works from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and much more interactive and eye-opening history of Atlanta's part in the struggle for freedom and equality in America. Check the photos after the jump.
The beautiful and talented writer/editor Jacinta Howard and I got married on July 3 in Roswell, GA. That's kinda what's kept me from posting as often--wedding planning, man! We also just got back from honeymooning in Negril, Jamaica. Look for photos of our time on the beautiful island soon. For now, thanks for all the love and support!
P.S.: Feel free to purchase Jacinta's new romance novel, Better Than Okay, from Barnes & Noble, Smashwords or Amazon. It's only $2.99, and it makes a wonderful wedding gift! ;-)
There's not really much to say about this new (free!) mix from DJ Wax On, other than it goes ridiculously hard, especially considering it's actually a funked-out, brassy, pimp-walky super-cool collection of songs that come together to make just under 60 minutes of the flyest noise a player such as yourself could play, any day of the week.
Last night I finally got a chance to attend the 38th-annual Atlanta Film Festival, a week-long event where buzzy independent films, shorts and movie projects are screened at Atlanta's oldest operating cinema, the Plaza Theatre. I missed quite a few showings I really wanted to see (potty training a toddler makes your social life crappy in more ways than one), but catching the photo-documentary Through A Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People made up for everything I didn't get to see. Here's why you too should see this really cool project when it comes to your town.
If you're not at least putting some thought into the question, "Who is the Yellow King?," it means you haven't watched a single episode of True Detective, because there's just no way you could've started watching and just dropped off. It's the best show on TV right now--the one in which the guy who just won one that big Oscar plays the main character. It's highly addictive, with quality acting and incredible writing. So I'll be nice and give you a "spoiler" warning, because I'm about to offer my theory of who will emerge as the central bad guy on Sunday's season finale. Spoiler alert...
Heart & Soul: How My Friend Kirsten Ott Palladino Publicly Shamed Blue Cross Blue Shield Into Doing The Right Thing And Saving Her Life
I met and became cool with Kirsten Ott Palladino at media events, back when I was the editor of Thrillist Atlanta and she was Life & Food editor for the alternative weekly Sunday Paper. Beyond cool, she is a dedicated professional and genuine good-hearted person. But also, not really. Let me explain...
