Angelina Jolie Writes Impassioned New York Times Op-Ed About Iraq Trip.

Days after Angelina Jolie was photographed on a visit to northern Iraq, the Unbroken director has written an impassioned op-ed about her trip for the New York Times. In it, she describes the devastation she witnessed in refugee camps and calls for action to help the millions of displaced Syrians and Iraqis who no longer have a home.


"I have visited Iraq five times since 2007, and I have seen nothing like the suffering I'm witnessing now," she writes in the op-ed, published by the Times on Tuesday, Jan. 27.
"For many years I have visited camps, and every time, I sit in a tent and hear stories," she explains. "I try my best to give support. To say something that will show solidarity and give some kind of thoughtful guidance. On this trip I was speechless."
As previously reported, the mom of six visited the Khanke Camp for Internally Displaced People on Sunday, Jan. 25. While there, she spoke with victims of ISIS — some of whom she describes in her Times op-ed.
"What do you say to the 13-year-old girl who describes the warehouses where she and the others lived and would be pulled out, three at a time, to be raped by the men?" the Maleficentstar and U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees questions. "When her brother found out, he killed himself." 
She continues: "How can you speak when a woman your own age looks you in the eye and tells you that her whole family was killed in front of her, and that she now lives alone in a tent and has minimal food rations?"
The piece goes on to detail the increasingly dire situation in Syria, noting that neighboring countries "have taken in nearly four million Syrian refugees, but they are reaching their limits."
With that in mind, Jolie calls upon the international community to take action. "What does it say about our commitment to human rights and accountability that we seem to tolerate crimes against humanity happening in Syria and Iraq on a daily basis?" she asks. 
"It is not enough to defend our values at home, in our newspapers and in our institutions," she writes. "We also have to defend them in the refugee camps of the Middle East, and the ruined ghost towns of Syria."

damn am i sprung?

Damn i am sprung?

HE got me bad damn why am i thinking of him and it was only a brief encounter.
He got me blown away and he didnt even open his mouth just looking into his eyes.
He got me wanting him like no other for some damn reason that i think i am sprung.
He got me jacking off to our brief moment of intimacy. Damn i cum all over myself alot.
He had this strut bout him that made me weak in the knees and had my heart racing.
He was 6'1 180 light skin with a low fade and goatee that was nicely trimmed. He wore a crisp brown slacks and a button down shirt with loafers. and was smelling good as i first made eye contact with him i knew i had to have him. He had all the qualities that i looked for in Mr Right, damn or damn not all i had to do was walk up to him and the rest would be history.


......To Be Continued.......

Patrik Ian Polk's Blackbird Film to hit theaters 2/20/15






I am pleased to announce that film "Blackbird" has a release date of February 20th, 2015 to hit theaters.
The film has been doing the film festival circuit for majority of 2014 through out the country as well as being screened internationally and has received nothing, but positive feedback and accolades.
Based on the novel by Larry Duplechan, Blackbird is a powerful coming-of-age story about 17-year-old Randy Rousseau. A devout high school choir boy, Randy is struggling to come to terms with his sexuality in a small, religiously-conservative Mississippi town he calls home. Randy juggles his role as star of the church choir while facing the everyday trials of life as a high school misfit. Complicating matters, his little sister has gone missing and his parents have subsequently split up, leaving him to care for his heartbroken mother, Claire. When Claire discovers the shocking secret her son has been hiding, she blames him for the disappearance of his sister. Randy’s father, Lance, who has been keeping a watchful eye on his broken family, steps in to give his son a hand as he struggles to make the difficult transition into manhood.

The film stars Oscar winner Mo’Nique, Isaiah Washington, Terrell Tilford, Julian Walker, Gary L. Gray, Kevin Allesee, Torrey Laamar, Nikki Jane and D. Woods.

Below is the trailer for the film which I have seen twice, i can say with confidence that you will thoroughly enjoy this movie and that is my promise to you. Congrats to Patrik Ian Polk on what will be his 4th film feature.
