Eyes Of The Moon – Kickstarter ending
The ending of the Kickstarter for the “Eyes Of The Moon” film are coming to a close in about one day. Please do yourself a favor and at least go checkout the project page. The cinematography is very well done and is definitely inspirational to anyone who would like to make an independent film themselves.
I’ve personally always wondered what would be spawned from a crew of like minded talented filmmakers and artists when they come together and just shoot something. This was done over a period of two months which really doesn’t seem like a long enough time to come up with a film and then shoot it, but as I understand it they would discuss ideas and then shoot it later that day and over the next day or days until they finished the scene and came up with another unrelated scene other than a main central theme of femininity.
The project has just met its funding goal of $15k so please join in so you don’t miss out on this great project, also we can use the help to reach the funding stretch goals.
UFC 179 – Aldo Vs Mendes 2: Aldo wins again
Aldo and Mendes put on a five round war tonight, with Aldo winning four rounds to snuff out Mendes’s only with one round that he clearly won.
Also the preliminary fights were pretty good, of course the most exciting fight for me was Iranian born, Beneil Dariush vs. Carlos Ferreira. The picture below sums up the fight with Dariush kicking Ferriera in the head on his way to a victory by unanimous decision.

Mayweather Wins again, Beats Maidana…
No, that’s not a accidental repeated post, the rematch was just as I predicted, Mayweather schools Maidana again. If someone is going to beat Mayweather, they are definitely not going to do it in a rematch. If an aggressive fighter is going to charge Mayweather, he needs to do it in the first fight. By the time the rematch comes around Mayweather has learned the other fighters style and built a defense that is much less likely to be penetrated.

Happy 41st Birthday Hip Hop!
41 years ago today, an event happened at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx that has gone on to shape the world as we know it. Clive Campbell aka Kool Herc DJ’d a back to school party for his sister Cindy, where he demonstrated his new Merry Go Round technique, thus laying the very foundation of Hip Hop, quickly followed by emceeing, B-Boying and graffiti to bring together what are known as the 4 elements, and thus creating not just a musical style but a entire culture that has impacted the world at a societal level.
I was into other music before discovering Hip Hop in 1985, but it is one that has had the longest lasting impact on my life. I started out as a B-Boy and Graf Artist, but rapidly accelerated into incorporating all elements, DJing, MCing, and even occasionally beat-boxing. I feel that once you fully embrace the sub-culture and i I can’t see that changing any time soon.
So I raise a glass to the originators, pioneers, and global exponents of Hip Hop in all its forms old and new. I wasn’t born yet when the first party was getting going, thus a tad young too attend, and on the wrong side of the country too. But I’ve made it over to NYC a few times on a pilgrimage to take in the landmarks, which I highly recommend.
Happy Birthday Hip Hop!
