This Woman Knew How to LIVE!

gal-angelou-8-jpgMaya Angelou (4.4.28 – 5.28.14)
“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.”

“You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

Well played, lovely lady.
Thank you for shining your brave, elegant, brilliant, passionate, sassy, truthful light on us.
Enjoy the next leg of your journey!

Introducing Roxë15, The Movie Art

Roxe1Web_1000px_COPYRIGHT

ARTWORK and TITLE: Copyright 2013, Artistic Freedom Ltd. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Any duplication, derivation or use is EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN.

We are pleased as punch to unveil the key artwork for my sci-fi short film, Roxë15. UK artist Rowan Stocks-Moore has produced 3 hot & gorgeous pieces of artwork for the project. Rowan was the bomb.com to work with and we’re stoked about how this art captures the stark world of the film *and* hints at the psycho-digital thang that rocks Roxë’s world.

Meantime, post-production marches on. Editor Jack Pearley is rolling with the creative punches, working it out. Also, we’ve just brought on NYC visual effects artist Adam Wiesen to give Roxë15 a nice dose of “yuck” factor. Welcome to Team Roxë, Adam!

Next up: motion graphics wizard Kate Thomson will soon be bringing her cyber-fabulous-bad-assness to the mix. Stay tuned.

The Queen of Soul

Happy Birthday, Lady.

She has one of the most beautiful voices ever recorded
(no shouting, shrieking or vocal contortionism required).
Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting your light shine!

Feminist & Proud….Because Women Are the Bomb

People sometimes ask me what being a feminist means to me. I say it means that I know that women and men are EQUAL not the same — but of equal value.
(Which is why it takes 1 egg and 1 sperm.)
For me, everything else follows from that premise of equality….
from the spiritual to the personal to the social to the political.

Happy International Women’s Day to women & girls everywhere and to those who love us!
