Hip Hop Is Alive

Hip Hop Is Alive

 It's not just poetry. It's not just art. It's not just black or white, rich or poor ... It's a movement and it lives in us all.

Hip Hop Is Alive, a stage play by storyteller Davida Chanel, will debut at the 2011 New Orleans Fringe Festival at Cafe Instanbul in the New Orleans Healing Arts Center (located on 2732 St. Claude). Show times will be: Nov 16th at 9 pm; Nov 18th at 11 pm; Nov 19th at 7 pm; and Nov 20th at 5 pm. The production features a set of vignettes dissecting stereotypes about the music genre by delving into its lyrical core. Actors portray scenes common to the overall human experience with dialogue taken primarily from Hip hop songs. Infused with dynamic dance performances &  a featured DJ nightly, this play asks us to open our minds about hip hop.

 "I grew up enthralled with poetry from greats like Nikki Giovanni and Maya Engelou," said Chanel. "As I grew, I found myself more attracted to the poetry and prose offerings of true hip hop artists. This play is an attempt to show how these poetic lyrics can apply to life scenarios we all face; regardless of gender, race, or socio-economic background." 

The 2011 New Orleans Fringe Festival, November 16-20, will be an extraordinary five-day spectacle of theater and performance art. Fifty groups from New orleans and around the country will be presenting over 150 show in venues across the city. Cafe Instanbul is a 3,800 square foot, handicap-accessible performance hall with a mission of fostering, encouraging, and promoting the performing arts in New Orleans. From its inception, Cafe Instanbul has been designed to be a top-notch platform for local artists making it the perfect venue to host this powerful production. For more information on Cafe Instanbul and the Fringe Festival: www.nofringe.org.

 Davida Chanel works in the film and television industry in Louisiana. She is currently on the USA series Common Law. The Plaquemine, LA native is a graduate of Southern University and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law. She is a member of the Melanated Writer's Group of New Orleans and the New Orleans Film Society.

The Finder: Quirky Travis McGee?

Trailer for the spinoff from the Fox TV show Bones. Looks like a quirky Travis McGee: Geoff Stults has the right look for McGee, and have to say, I like Michael Clark Duncan in the Meyer role. I just don't think there is anyway for the series to live up to the fin of that trailer.

He realizes his hands are gripping the wheel too tight.

 "No reaction time."

 He breathes heavily. He feels his weight settling and everything relaxing from the head down. The car in front is coming up fast, but he must take these few seconds. Finally it hits his hands, and they loosen on the wheel.

 He presses down on the accelerator and moves to the right passing the car.

 He can see the lines now. Not real lines. not hallucinations. These are lines he superimposes as hem oves through the traffic to show all the ways around and through the other cars.

 Relaxed he presses play. The music starts, and he presses down harder on the accelerator. 


 The car is moving faster now. He checks the dashboard clock and his watch.

T.S. Lee - 1

He stares at the doorway watching the rain and the wind.

"What's the weather like?"

He looks at her. Just looks like he doesn't know what she is.

"It's a tropical storm. Sitting right on top of us. Three days of wet and windy."

"When does the bad stuff get here?"


"Go look at the radar on TV. All that green and yellow - us for the next three days."

She walks away. He watches.

He turns back to watching the rain fall and the wind move the rain and trees all around.

He hopes she knows what disdain he has for her; but he knows that like the storm it might be too complex a thought.

Mississippi State Creed

The Mississippi State Creed

“It began atop the untilled soil of Mississippi.
The burden of breaking the soil lay of diligent men,
A burden lifted by sweat and steadfastness,
Evidence that a man is only good as his day is long
And revealing the merit of companionship against the common struggle
Cooperation breeds vision, and seeds were planted with a future harvest in mind.
In 1878, Mississippi A&M was sown into the soil of Mississippi.

Today, I am the yield, my roots running deep into the soil of my State.
They stir with industry, humility, and graciousness,
Forever entangled with the roots of my fathers, brothers, and sisters,
For those who sow and those who reap share in the return
All these truths bestowed upon me, indeed define who I am,
Champion of the Maroon & White, and a Mississippi State man until long after
I regard this identity as rich and deep as the soil from which it sprang.”
