“The Last Humans” is a collection of short films using art and poetry that prove that, in the city, truth is often stranger than fiction. From the mind of Bess, Episode 1, “The Walk to Work” is the story of “Zenobia” and “Ms. Audrey”, check it out exclusively here, it’s a trip.

Last week this time I received my copy of Russell Taylor’s “War of Hearts” cd in the mail and it’s been in constant and heavy rotation ever since. It’s a really great album in an era where people are constantly complaining that there is no good music out there, and that black people in particular, don’t make real music anymore. This record (and so many great indie albums for that matter, but that’s another discussion!) calls BULLs#@! on that tired, lazy, separatist, conveniently blind way of thinking. War of Hearts is a pop record in the best way; it’s multi-genre/hybrid, eclectic, and all that stuff, while staying authentic, accessible and raw. It’s REAL music, without being retro. It’s of the moment, it’s emotional, it’s sexy, I’m telling you, it’s great! Our favorites are “Proud”, “Electric”, and “Blueprint”.
Here is the link on iTunes to preview and buy it.
Don’t forget to leave a review on Russell’s itunes page, and spread the word! Remember, it takes a village, we are the ones we have been waiting for, be the change you want to see in the world, insert your favorite inspirational quote here _________________________. LOL!
I Love You All,
