>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 am excited to be writing for an up and coming Black Cinema magazine called Cinematiq, which comes out quarterly. You can read all about it here:
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.

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