Andresflava Remebers Lisa "Lefteye" Lopez 9 yrs later

It was 9 years ago today, that we lost the beautiful…talented…outspoken Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes in a car wreck in Honduras. May her smile, her music, her legacy be felt for years to come.  The morning of her death, I was in shock. I was in disbelief. It didn’t seem real because just a few years prior, we had lost Aaliyah. To lose 2 big stars that soon, it was unreal. Both dying exactly 8 months apart. The group TLC was one of the biggest selling groups at the time of the untimely death of "Lefteye" and in my opinion left a void that will never be replaced again. Below are a few of my favorite videos from the group TLC.

The Motherfucker With the Hat Broadway Show Review starring Chris Rock

Last week I was got an opportunity to see an preview of the play The Motherfucker With the Hat the play by Stephen Adly Guirgis took place at Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. The play also includes Bobby Cannavale, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Annabella Sciorra and Yul Vazquez. The play is about a couple – Jackie (Cannavale) and Veronica (Rodriguez) – who’ve been in love with each other since they were kids, but after years of drugs and alcohol addiction, Jackie has sobered up with the help of his AA sponsor, Ralph D. (played by Chris Rock); however, Veronica, hasn’t.

When I tell you that this play which is an 1 and 30 mins is worth every minute of sitting down and enjoying cause It will make you laugh, It will make you cry, but most of all it will have you coming out thinking and talking about the play in a good way. Chris Rock who we all know for his comedic roles makes his dramatic debut on Broadway and he did not disappoint at all. Sadly i wish i could not get any footage of the play or video still at all, but i highly recommend that you come to NYC if your not in NYC and see this great play which debuted yesterday and will be lasting for 15 weeks at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater hopefully I can use my power to get an interview with Chris Rock. crossing fingers. Also this was my first time seeing an actually Broadway play so it was well worth the expierence.

"Amazing Grace" by Nhojj"

Recorded by OUTMusic Award winner Nhojj. Directed by OUT 100 nominee Kirk Shannon-Butts. This new version of "Amazing Grace" expands the innate power of this hymn to affirm the LGBT community and support Gay Marriage. It represents a step forward for homosexuals in reclaiming their spiritual lives and healing wounds. This is the first time a well known Christian hymn has been used in a music video to express the "rightness and godliness" of same gender love -- portraying a male interracial couple exchanging marriage vows and living in a loving committed relationship.

Darryl Stephens "Noah from Noah's Arc" debuts his first novel Shortcomings

Darryl Stephens is now an author and his first book is entitled Shortcomings, Shortcomings talk about a group of young men whose lives intersect around the notion that sex is just another means to an end in the ultimate quest for love and companionship. They turn to dive bars, drug habits, pop music and pornography to cope with the loneliness they suffer when they find their emotional well-being dependent on the support and understanding of other men. SHORTCOMINGS is a provocative and compelling glimpse into those intensely personal moments when men come together and allow fear to finally give way to love. The Sysnopsis is: It’s easy to get distracted on the journey to self-discovery. We all come with our own baggage and it’s impossible to predict how other people’s damage will affect our story.  This very good book which is 324 pages and cost 24.99 and can be purchased on http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/shortcomings/15235929

The Men Of Sigma 2012 Calendar

This project will focus on the fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. The “International Sigma Calendar” will depict the organization’s diversity, putting emphasis on business, community service, health, fitness and education. The project will also aid many different organizations related to the Fraternity, Headquarters, Alpha Beta Beta Chapter of Elon University, Epsilon Sigma Chapter, Harlem NY. It will also fund a charity to help families affected by Autism and provide a scholarship to an undergraduate brother of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. A group of 18 brothers have been chosen for this project, each to represent a month with 3 photographs (a body shot, business attire and a community service shot) He will not only represent himself and his chapter, but he will also be a representation of the organization of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. as a whole. This diverse group of guys will represent the unique attraction that Phi Beta Sigma carries nationally, while at the same time upholding the Sigma standard of those illustrious members who have walked this path before them. It is my desire as a financial brother of Epsilson Sigma Chapter in Harlem NY, to use this project to promote the fraternity in the highest and most positive light possible in continuing to build a culture that benefits humanity, while creating a path of excellence for future brothers .

You can check out more pics from their calendar photo shoot on their facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/#!/TheMenOfSigma2012Calendar

Video: Toronto Raptors Leandro Barbosa and Reggie Evans holding hands spurs homophobia

After the Raptors’ big win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday, 102-98, cameras caught Leandro Barbosa grab the hand of Reggie Evans and walk into the locker room. While Barbosa remained stone-face, Evans was good-natured and gave a big smile. The duo had a strong night with 18 points on 9-for-15 shooting. That didn’t stop many from spewing homophobia on YouTube at the players, their team. Below is the video of the incent which in my opinion was just a teammate just his expression on a good win which allowed the Raptors to snap a six game losing streak.
