World Of Lather: a month in soap

21 September 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Sarah Dempster asks who banged Kat in EastEnders? But to be honest, who cares. Now it's all about Gloria Price in Coronation Street

"Call me Gloria," oozed Gloria Price, draping herself around Lloyd Mullaney's neck like a menopausal snood. "I've got [voice lowered, bosom hoisted to nostrils] … the gift." The words hung in the air like the smell of burnt euphemism. Lloyd gulped and loosened his pleather blouson. "I like my men," she added moistly, "to be real men." That faint whooshing you can hear is the sound of every testicle in Weatherfield darting, terrified, behind the nearest kidney. Gloria – a voracious fantasist the colour of Kia-Ora – arrived in Coronation Street with a gob full of sauce and a suitcase stuffed with tall tales of skulduggery on the Costa del Lol with a Rock Hudson lookalike called Cliff. Gail was outraged. Karl was appalled. Daughter Stella greeted her declarations of psychic giftedness with a face like a squeezed grapefruit ("John Lennon. »

Nalip 2012 - Empowering our Multi-Cultural Creative Identity

25 April 2012 9:30 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Adding to our Wednesday feature LatinoBuzz, Christine Davila, Sundance programmer is contributing Chicana from Chicago, her take on the Latino scene.  Here is our first outing:

Diverse Voices, Universal Content

Runaway Renegade

Described as the largest gathering of Latinos working in media in the U.S., the 13thannual National Association of Latino Independent Producers (Nalip) Conference presented by Time Warner, most actively by way of HBO Latino and NBC Universal, and The National Latino Media Council, took place this weekend at the model tourist convention hub, Universal City Sheraton. Nalip finds itself in a bit of a transition following Kathryn Galan’s departure as Executive Director who spent almost eleven years at the organization shaping it into what it is today.  The search is still on for a replacement but guiding the transition as Interim Director is the affable Beni Matias who started with Nalip from its inception. A couple of the board members are new, including Rosa Alonso, founder of My Latino Voicewho will lend her digital marketing expertise to the organization.  These high level leadership changes can potentially bring about a revitalized and evolving mission to Nalip’s growing legacy.   Covering the conference for Latin Heat Online Magazine, I greatly enjoyed the ability to observe and take part with an inquisitive gonzo-like spirit.  Indeed I’d be remiss if I did not approach the significant Latino organization with an on-the-ground, critical eye, especially now while it is in a very ‘review mode’ on how to continue to stay relevant.  Its crucial to recognize its monumental formation and landmark achievements.  Equally as crucial is to identify how to pragmatically further the conversation it began thirteen years ago about Us Latino representation in front and behind the camera. Most important is to distill the relevant but sometimes incongruent messaging – for instance, the Robert Rodriguez keynote illustrated a polar opposite way of thinking to that of Ron Meyer’s keynote (Do we want to Break Out or Break In to the mainstream?),  which makes for an intriguing forum of deeper discussion.

New Works/New Voices: A Storyteller's Journey panel with Tamir Muhammad, Tribeca Film Institute, Shari Frilot, Sundance Film Festival, Gun Hill Road filmmaker Rashaad Ernesto Green moderated by Luis Castro, HBO

Lovely RRRRRRita - recipient of Nalip's Lifetime Achievement Award and exclusive Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) club member

What to expect from Chicana from Chicago’s multi-part Nalip coverage?   A couple of case-studies/interviews with Rashaad Ernesto Green who epitomizes the Diy mentality which made his feature debut, Gun Hill Road a unique success story, the filmmaker Michael D. Olmos and his star, Gina Rodriguez ofFilly Brown who embody the Us Latino pop culture flavor.

I’d like to recognize the influential Gatekeepers at non-profit, artistic development institutions responsible for introducing the most fresh, diverse and underrepresented voices to audiences, like Shari Frilot, Senior Programmer at Sundance Film Festival, Tamir Muhammad, Director of Feature Programming at Tribeca Film Institute and Richard Ray Perez who is the newest and welcome U.S. Latino staff addition at Sundance Institute’s Documentary Feature Program.  I’m also most excited to give you a heads up on fresh new film and multi-media projects in the works, and I’ll make sure to dish on the fancy Awards Gala.

I found the theme of Nalip 2012’s, “Diverse Voices, Universal Content” sounding futuristic and empowering, yet initially too broadly defined and perfunctory. I strongly feel that the more focus we can bring to next year’s themes, the better we’ll be able to advance conversation.  That said, I’ve identified a few key points that were strong merits of this year’s Nalip, and an excellent way to frame and contextualize what was really being said:

Training our content producers and artists, to not only compete but to raise the bar and expectations in every industry. Advocate and encourage our friends of color and diversity in all professions, in particular policy-making fields, towards becoming ‘Decision Makers” The need to vocally and financially support ‘our own content’, as peers but especially obligate those in a position of power who represent us and utilize our fan-dom (Robert Rodriguez with his new El Rey network) Networking and sharing with peers, and takeaway the hard lessons learned by our elders, those who first paved in-roads into mainstreams, like Rita Moreno and Jerry Velasco, recipients of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Awards. Developing our individual and personal voices with which we distinguish our mestizo identity while simultaneously relating the universal the power of storytelling

Overall, I found Nalip an absolutely positive and celebratory environment. .  I’m happy to share my thoughts but I would love and need to hear from You.    I invite you to engage and kindly ask you to share your comments and observations from this year’s Nalip, and in general the landscape of Us Latino representation in media as you’ve experienced it.

Halestorm: The Strange Case Of… Review

24 April 2012 10:28 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I was turned on to Halestorm by an associate about 2 years ago. Having trust in this friend, I stopped into my local music shop and picked up the band’s self titled debut album sight unseen. No disc has seen this amount of play in my car stereo in nearly 30 years, when Michael Jackson’s Thriller blared from the speakers of my 1970 Chevy Nova. Basically, I dug the disc. A lot.

I’ve always been a big fan of female fronted rock bands. I think the softer tones of the female voice just lend themselves better to the overall sound. Halestorm front-woman Lzzy Hale, in my opinion, stands tallest amongst the female leads working in rock today. She boasts a vocal range nearly unrivaled by her rock-n-roll peers as she easily transitions between soft ballads and melt your face off wails. Since I’ve been fortunate enough to see Halestorm live, »

Competition: Win German slasher movie ‘Break’ on DVD

1 April 2012 11:35 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Trinity X have announced they are to give a DVD release to the graphic German ‘backwoods slasher’ Break on April 16th 2012.  Directed by Matthias Olof Eich, this brutal game of sadistic cat-and-mouse between the sexes goes to the extreme – you’ll be able to judge how extreme if you win one of the ten DVDs we’re giving away!

Four young girlfriends head out to the Canadian woods for some downtime.  But downtime turns to terror time when they discover a pile of intestines and a pair of severed feet dangling from a tree. The friends begin to realise humans are the preferred prey and that they are being hunted. Armed with bows and arrows, two brutal rednecks are on the rampage and the girls’ blood-soaked battle for survival begins.

To win a copy of Break on DVD just answer this simple, yet horrifying question:

In what “classic” 80s backwoods »
