Jay-Z and Beyonce bailed out Baltimore and Ferguson protesters: Report

Jay-Z and Beyonce bailed out Baltimore and Ferguson protesters: Report

enhanced-11116-1431916372-23

The writer and activist dream hampton — in a series of quickly deleted tweets — that Jay-Z and Beyonce have quietly put up the money to bail protesters out of jail in Ferguson and in Baltimore, and that they have been essential backers of the #blacklivesmatter movement.

dream hampton — social justice organizer, writer, and award-winning filmmaker — just unloaded an enlightening, reality-checking series of tweets. Speaking on the current difficulties surrounding protests, hampton pointed to one of the most damaging wars being waged against black resistance — a financial stronghold. “Protest is literally punished with tariffs,” hampton tweeted.

The Decoded contributor also spoke openly about Jay Z’s numerous private contributions to the resistance, indirectly confronting the constant flurry of detractors who repeatedly hurl claims of hypocrisy at Jay and Beyoncésurrounding their perceived silence on the issues surrounding Ferguson,Baltimore, and protests in general. In short, the Carters have — according to dream hampton — privately donated large amounts of money to ease the burden of posting bail for protestors, as well as other equally impactful donations that are simply “too much to list.”

Review of Sangeeta Wadhwani Coho Bohemia, the Bombay Artwalk in Worli with Alyque Padamsee, DJ Sin, 2Blue and many more

Review of Sangeeta Wadhwani Coho Bohemia, the Bombay Artwalk in Worli with Alyque Padamsee, DJ Sin, 2Blue and many more

Coho Bohemia, the Bombay Artwalk, is a movement for people by people…essentially creative people though. A mix of singers, dancers, rappers, poets, authors, ranging from edgy and experimental to urbane know-it-alls, get together on a Saturday afternoon in a beautiful artspace to simply share and grow. Each ‘talent’ gets a 10 to 15 minute segment to share his or her passion and interact briefly with a live audience.
A movement established by an expat author, journalist and Bharat Natyam exponent called Janet Fine, about 15 years ago, it earlier entailed going from one gallery to the next, mostly in downtown Colaba and Kala Ghoda where galleries were walking distances from each other.  After Janet’s untimely demise in 2007, Coho too died a natural death. Sangeeta Wadhwani, a friend of Janets had a dream that reviving Coho could be fun. She called on all of the usual coterie that knew Janet and tried to reassemble the tradition. Only now, it got a notch better with professional sound and evolving talent.  The most recent Coho just took place on May 16 at Gallery Art and Soul, and featured performances from a variety of creative individuals. ..from theatre doyen Alyque Padamsee doing a POP UP workshop on appreciating Shakespeare “whose words should exist between the lips and the listener’s ear” to a soul renting presentation by Trublu aka Judas from the current production of Jesus Christ Superstar. DJ Sin got down to amusing and entertaining the audience with original rap recited with sitar exponent Kumar Madhusudan and tabla player Brijesh. Representatives from Giants International showcased their work building houses for rehabilitation post the Nepal earthquake and immediately raised enough to fund half a new bamboo, earthquake friendly house! And the mellifluous Vikram Malwankar and Aradhana of the Uttama Music Academy revisited a host of ghazals and movie classics. Young author Anjali Kirplani read from her new book Written In the Stars while fashion designer Arti Vijay Gupta presented an installation of her garments all featuring prints of miniature paintings from different ateliers in India.
All in all the magic of Coho continues wherever aesthetics,  music, the written word and theatre get to breathe and expand…! And yes when I the curator Sangeeta Wadhwani,  find enough space and time to assemble all…

Louis CK – SNL Monologue – Racism & Child Molesters

Louis CK – SNL Monologue – Racism & Child Molesters

saturday-night-live-louis-ck-nbc


During last night’s Saturday Night Live opening monologue, comedian Louis C.K.decided to hit pretty much every hot button issue. In the span of eight minutes, he managed to tackle casual racism, the Israel/Palestinian conflict and child molestation. It was a lot, to say the least.

Devout fans know that Louis C.K.’s brand of humor is all about pushing envelopes, in the vein of Richard Pryor and George Carlin. But the earnest SNL viewer might have found that lines like “Child molesters are very tenacious people. They love molesting childs, it’s crazy!” took edginess a little too far.
