Texas Black Film Festival. Dallas. 22 Jan 2010.

Certain films which are worthy of Honorable Mention are not programmed due to various factors including: screen availability; appeal to small niche audiences; or TBFF lacking any Premiere status. The following films, although not programmed, received Honorable Mention.

Chasing Keino dir. by Ed Vaughan (Dripping Springs, TX)
The Fire Inside dir. by Monique Walton (Austin, TX)
Coming Correct dir. by Joseph L. Stovall (Lawrenceville, GA)
River Toll dir. by Kenny Brown (LA, CA)
Brothers, Inc. dir. by Michael Johnson (LA, CA)
Johnny’s Leaving dir. by Kali Baker-Johnson (Maplewood, NJ)

It would have been fun to have screened cK in Dallas, but equally nice that the work was appreciated.

Lloyd, again? 21 Jan 2010.

I really couldn’t resist. He’s in the news again with the GSCo. earnings release today. When I said, in the post below, his eyes were asymmetrical and squinty. There was something subliminal that I couldn’t put my finger on. Until now.

Doesn’t Lloyd resemble Popeye? He only really has one squinty eye – his right. Just like Popeye. Eh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh. (I think that’s how Popeye laughs. Lloyd may laugh louder, though… he’s using taxpayer money).
