Shameless Gaming Promo: Mid-Year Mayhem! (Re-blogged)

Since the Mid-Year Mayhem in-game event is still in full swing, I figured it was the perfect time to re-blog this shameless gaming promotion! Many screen-shots are being taken, and more live-streaming of the slaughter is scheduled for Friday and through the weekend. Tune in for the fun!

*** DISCLAIMER: As always, I wanted to clarify that I receive no compensation of any sort for these personal gaming promotions. I do these of my own free will as a dedicated gamer, and as a long-time subscriber to this awesome game! ***

I’m happy to announce the fourth installment of an in-game, seasonal event: Mid-Year Mayhem will be celebrated in the battlefields and war-zone of The Elder Scrolls Online! As you might recall, the first event was the Witches’ Festival in October of last year. That was followed by the New Life Festival in December, which began on the Solstice and ended around the New Year.

The Vernal Equinox was celebrated with the Jester’s Festival, where one of the mementoes that could be earned was a branch of Sakura (桜 or 櫻): you can festoon fellow gamers and guild-mates with a shower of fragrant flower-petals whenever…

R.I.P. Jim Vance, 75, Washington DC’s Longest-Serving Local News Anchor

Another giant of journalism passed away on 22 July. In this day and age, we need many more like him to fill his shoes, and keep reminding us to maintain integrity in these divisive, troubled times.

In a city of news junkies and scores of high-profile figures in politics and the media, the most-watched journalist in Washington may well have been Jim Vance. With 45 years as the face of WRC-TV (Channel 4), he was the region’s longest-serving television news anchor. He presided over the area’s top-rated newscasts and became a public figure in his own right. He gained broad sympathy for his openness about his struggles with drugs and depression.

Mr. Vance, who was 75, died July 22. The death was announced by WRC-TV, where he had worked since 1969, but no further details were provided. He announced his diagnosis of cancer earlier this year.After three years as a reporter for Channel 4, Mr. Vance ascended to the anchor’s chair in 1972, putting him in the first wave of black news…

The Wonderful, Colourful World of Cosplay!

Happy Monday, everyone! I figured that I’d share some images I found whilst scouring the interwebs today. I’m doing some researching and took a break, and discovered some awesome cosplayers – I’m not alone in my geeky, gaming world!

Last Week Tonight: “Liberal” Media? (Re-Blogged)

“Last Week Tonight” will return with new episodes on Sunday, 30 July. This reblogged post from the beginning of the month should tide us over until then!

In this edition, John talks about the Sinclair Broadcast group, the most powerful and influential media group in the country. It is not, nor has it ever been, a bastion of “liberal” media. Most networks aren’t, if you really think about it!

😎

On a lighter note, though: here is “liberal” media at its finest, and I abso-fucking-lutely LOVE IT!!! ROFLMAO!

Actress Cris Vianna and the importance of having black dolls; even with them being rare in Brazil, she has a collection of about 60-70 black dolls!

I was fortunate to have at least three Black dolls when I was a kid! They are becoming more and more available to children worldwide, and that’s excellent.

Black Women of Brazil

Note from BW of Brazil: One of these days I must meet the actress Cris Vianna! I’m really not much into what Brazil has to offer in terms of its media, but I would love to sit and pick Cris’s brain for an hour or two. She is one of the most beautiful women on television plus, even not necessarily coming across as a militant, she strikes me as someone who really “gets it”. What I mean is, she isn’t afraid to speak on issues of race, she always represents black beauty well on the small screen, has been in a long-term relationship with a very dark-skinned black man for a number of years and now I learn that she is an avid collector of black dolls! I don’t expect Cris to be on the front lines leading any protests against the ongoing slaughter of black youth, but…

For All of the Comic-Con Fans… ***UPDATED*** (Re-blogged)

San Diego Comic-Con International will be wrapping up this year’s event by Monday. I would have liked to attend, but the budget didn’t allow for any major excursions. I’ll just start saving up funds, get my cosplay gear ready, and do a convention-related tour in 2020!

Last, but certainly not least, honourable mention to Congressman John Lewis, who was at SDCC promoting his graphic novel trilogy, March. From Tech Times:

In 1956, a comic book changed John Lewis’s life. It was a ten cent, 14-page floppy that told the story of Martin Luther King’s march on Montgomery. 

“The Martin Luther King story inspired me,” explains the congressman, telling a story he’s no doubt recounted countless times over the past few years. “It told me what happened and how it happened in Montgomery, the involvement of Rosa Parks and hundreds of people. This little book, 14 pages, sold for ten cents and became the blueprint…

Philadelphia Resident Vashti Dubois Turns Home into Museum Dedicated to Black Women

This is excellent news – I plan on visiting this museum on our next road trip!

GOOD BLACK NEWS

There is a museum like no other in Philadelphia. You would not have heard it, it is not listed anywhere and there are no signs from the motorway. Only the hand carved wooden sign in the garden hinted that the Victorian house was not like any other home in the world – and the woman who opened the door had the smile of someone who knew she was about to amaze you.

For years Vashti Dubois was sick of not seeing any images of black girls or women in museums and art galleries, so three years ago she decided to do something about it. The 56-year-old turned her house into The Colored Girls Museum, celebrating everything about black women and their place in the universe. Standing in the hallway, which screams with colour due to every inch…

5 On Friday: Songs for the Signs!

Happy Friday, all! In today’s installment of “Five on Friday,” I offer five songs which have the Western astrological signs in their titles. Some of these are familiar to most, but I think one or two might be a bit more obscure. Perfect beginning for the weekend, eh?
