    THE WHEEL SPEAKS ON 2013 – Support Positive Arts THE WHEEL SPEAKS ON 2013 – Support Positive Arts Document Transcript

    •   THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013  –  Support  Positive  Arts     Definite  plans  this  weekend  to  support  African  American  Independent  Film  Director   Neil  Drumming.  His  film  is  showing  at  The  Downtown  Independent  Cinema  located   in  Los  Angeles  it's  also  showing  in  New  York  be  sure  to  support  if  possible  this   weekend  http://www.downtownindependent.com/events/big-­‐words   http://www.downtownindependent.com/events/big-­‐words     Very  excited  about  seeing  the  critically  acclaim  film  Fruitvale  Station  especially   today  the  writer  director  Ryan  Coogler  so  many  of  my  friends  have  been  raving   about  in  particularly  this  movie.  Be  sure  to  especially  start  taking  your  children  old   enough  to  see  these  independent  movies  out  to  see  them.  Fruitvale  Station  deals   with  subjects  that  you  won’t  see  the  regular  Hollywood  producer  or  director  taking   the  time  to  bring  to  the  forefront.  Hopefully  the  mention  two  directors  will  one   many  years  to  come  bring  us  more  cinema  of  this  type  quality   http://www.fruitvalefilm.com/     Supporting  positive  arts  need  to  be  the  trend  we  establish  as  a  consumer  that   without  a  doubt  and  proof  is  documented  that  African  Americans  currently  do   support  the  arts  and  entertainment.  Enough  so  now  that  major  studios  corporations   and  retailers  will  do  more  than  just  entertain  an  African  American  as  a  pitch  person   or  face  of  a  product.  With  that  being  said  it’s  not  at  all  necessary  to  call  each  other   n*@@#  or  anything  that  will  deface  us  as  a  people  to  sell  a  product.  I  am  literally  a   shame  when  I  see  dudes  who  I  have  probably  known  for  close  to  thirty  years  still   stepping  on  the  backs  of  there  own  people  just  to  sell  an  album  apparel  or  endorse  a   product.    Funny  thing  is  even  after  this  capitalistic  society  has  enabled  many  of  them   to  enjoy  lavish  lifestyles  and  to  basked  in  it  for  years  you  would  think  an  alarm   would  ring  in  the  heads  of  some  of  these  individuals.  But  quite  honestly  certain   people  are  selected  by  choice  so  entertain  me  for  one  second  as  I  elaborate  on  this   assertive  point  of  view.  
    •   The  entertainment  industry  period  does  expect  returns  on  anything  that  it  has   invested  in  whether  it  be  an  artist  or  project  we  all  understand  this  to  be  truth  but   the  entertainment  industry  has  totally  been  revamped  and  it  scares  every  single   executive  in  this  world.  No  longer  does  an  individual  have  to  rely  on  a  movie  studio   or  record  label  or  supposed  artist  development  guru  or  agent  to  promote  them   anymore.  The  internet  has  changed  more  about  this  industry  called  entertainment   than  corporations  will  ever  allow  to  become  public  discussions  and  as  well  news   personalities  as  well  even  those  moguls  we  have  love  for  aren’t  going  to  come  as   clean  as  they  should.       Reason  being  that  would  take  money  out  of  their  pockets  as  well  I  love  me  some   Oprah  and  I  am  quite  proud  of  her  success  and  I  support  OWN  and  enjoy  all  the   programming  which  includes  my  favorite  show  The  Haves  And  The  Have  Not’s.  But   it  should  be  remembered  that  the  incredible  Oprah  learned  much  of  what  she   learned  from  working  for  the  King  Brothers  of  King  World  Productions   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_World_Productions    please  be  sure  to  read   more  about  King  World  and  the  legendary  television  shows  they’ve  syndicated   through  the  years  http://www.nytimes.com/1992/07/26/business/the-­‐rise-­‐and-­‐ rise-­‐of-­‐the-­‐brothers-­‐king.html?pagewanted=all&src=pm   It  is  no  secret  why  allegiance  wise  Tyler  Perry  has  been  literally  anointed  by  Oprah   not  to  question  his  talent  at  all  but  back  when  Miss  Winfrey  decided  that  she  no   longer  wanted  to  be  a  part  of  King  World  it  was  important  to  establish  her  own   universe.  And  pretty  much  anyone  who  she  required  on  board  she  extended  the   olive  branch  which  was  strategically  brilliant  as  a  business-­‐person  in  this  society   and  important  for  the  development  of  the  network.     Then  after  the  rocky  start  of  the  network  it  has  flourish  but  now  what  we  see   happening  before  our  eyes  believe  me  has  caught  the  attention  of  every  executive   breathing  right  now.  There’s  confusion  it’s  simple  basically  what’s  next  what  or  who   is  the  next  biggest  thing  for  instance  one  day  a  kid  shows  me  this  video  on  youtube   almost  3  years  ago  of  a  kid  name  Spoken  Reasons  a  kid  just  clowning  I  laughed  so   hard  then  I  looked  at  the  hits  on  his  sight  and  it  was  about  3  million.  Then  I  look  at   all  the  other  videos  and  we’re  talking  millions  of  people  for  maybe  over  12  different   videos  at  that  time  when  he  was  an  underground  sensation  with  the  kids  but  now   it’s  in  the  billions  and  although  a  studio  has  already  put  him  in  a  featured  film  with   Sandra  Bullock  (The  Heat)  someone  will  stick  there  claws  in  him  soon  and  it  might   not  even  be  to  showcase  him   http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=spoken+reasons&oq=spoken+&gs _l=youtube.1.0.0l7j0i10j0l2.2706.4233.0.6320.7.6.0.1.1.0.97.501.6.6.0...0.0...1ac.1.11. youtube.2f2hCGbK1SU          
    • Remember  studios  and  this  industry  especially  music  has  a  way  of  loosing  artist  to   so  don’t  ever  assume  that  your  favorite  artist  might  be  cleverly  coming  up  with  the   hooks  and  beats  he  or  she  may  have  been  spitting  or  singing  for  decades.  But  before   I  get  sidetrack  and  off  the  initial  topic  which  I  have  been  known  to  do  let  me  go  back   to  my  initial  request.       Go  out  and  support  these  young  African  American  film-­‐makers  this  weekend  and   remember  the  entertainment  industry  is  literally  a  grind  and  it’s  almost  comical   when  I  see  people  going  out  buying  $300  telephones  just  to  get  music  supposedly   downloaded  free  on  a  phone  they  just  bought  along  with  the  application  and  an   album  that  many  of  music  industries  most  respected  critics  say  is  whack     But  rather  than  critiquing  anything  I’d  just  rather  go  out  myself  this  weekend  and   support  positive  arts  be  sure  to  bring  the  kids  whether  it’s  to  a  movie  to  hear  some   music  or  to  the  theatre  or  a  free  concert  series  in  the  park  celebrate  all  arts.     Remember  art  does  imitate  life  and  not  necessarily  every  artist  cares  about  the  way  we   all  live.  Don’t  for  one  second  underestimate  the  power  of  the  consumer  and  your  dollar.   But  more  importantly  demand  quality  and  you  don’t  necessarily  have  to  just  buy   anything  or  go  anyplace  just  to  say  you  have  it  or  did.     Respectfully,   THE  WHEEL   (The  Way  Humanity/Hudson  Expects  Everyone  to  Live)
