Goodbye For Now....

Try as I might, I cannot seem to post. It makes it worse when I see my ideas and concepts that I've had for years taken (some may say stolen) and watered down by other Black film blogs. It really irritates me, in fact, and I need to direct that focus elsewhere.

So instead of holding this energy of guilt over this blog, in addition to being highly annoyed by certain other ones, I will be concentrating my energies on my other projects. I've been quoted from this blog, nominated for awards, and linked to major media outlets, so I feel like I've definitely accomplished something here, but onward.....


I have a Blog Talk Radio Show called "Cinema In Noir", and it's on every Sunday at 6pm EST, (3pm PST), and we have fun. I do it with three other female Black Cinema bloggers, Kimberly Renee, Rebecca, and Candice, who all sincerely love film just as much as I do. We decided to have a show all about Black film from a Black female perspective, but male listeners love it too...and trust, we are definitely not spending our time commiserating about Tyler Perry, lol.

You can listen to our podcast here; my name is Rocky (now you know) so you'll know when it's me:

I will be writing a weekly column for the fabulous "Black Box Office" blog:

I really do talk about film almost all day, every day, just not here, haha. Please join me to talk about it with me and my comrades over on Twitter. You can find me here:

Finally, and very lovingly, I've been curating Black film screenings in the San Francisco Bay Area under the moniker "Black Cinema At Large". This is my passion and my love, and my ultimate mission since I first started this blog in 2007. I will eventually put up a link to which screenings are when and where, sort of a calender of events.

I am very stoked to be a California affiliate of AFFRM, which is as 100% dedicated to spreading the beauty of Black film as I am. It is a collective network of Black Film Festivals and Curators bringing QUALITY Black film to your neighborhood, which ordinarily would not be seen through the "conventional" studio system.

You can read about AFFRM and it's mission here:

Like the old show Siskel & Ebert used to say before signing off; "See you at the movies".

Love!!!


UPDATE

3/14/11: Ms. Invisibelle finally joined 2008 by starting up her Facebook for real, haha. You can find me here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Black-Cinema-At-Large/152521598124915

I love all that you do for black film past/present/future. I'm so glad I came across your site eons ago. My Netflix queue is chock full of a combo of classics (of course), tv (yes), indie features (most certainly) AND black cinema (old school black cinema circa the 60s/70s/80s) in part due to you, your site and other black film sites. I love the blogradio show and will definitely keep tuning in. I see you on Twitter; I know you'll keep us posted on all your endeavors and I wish you nothing but the best!

Invisible Woman said...

It's sad to see you leave the blogosphere, IW, but it's been a fun and groovy ride keeping up with your writings. You have a fresh voice, and I know you'll do it big in your other endeavors. I'll be sure to follow your podcast!

Peace & Love, V-Knowledge
