This article originally got published a few weeks ago at Practice of Madness. It's more in line with the material usually published here. Give it a full read - it's a collaboration with a very close friend. Apologies if it's difficult to read here - Jennifer's page is very interactive.

Taking A Look Back At The Star Wars Prequels Part Two: Too Much CGI?

This article is a try at new stuff for my website and for me as a writer - let alone for my contributions to Dagblog. I'm limiting myself here - I'm pretty sure I could actually write a book about Star Wars if I let myself loose. Let me know what you think and thanks, Mike, for encouraging me to do this.

Taking A Look Back At The Star Wars Prequels

Hey guys here is another post from my website Blood Is One - a hip-hop centric but not purely hip-hop pop culture blog. Michael Maiello said he'd like to see the culture content stepped up a bit on Dagblog and I can certainly deliver. I think this topic may appeal to many of you.

A Q & A With Daniel Torok, "Otherside" Director

Like the last article on hip-hop I posted here, this was originally posted at my website Blood Is One. Alot of this is written with the intent of being good enough to turn the heads of local newspapers. Let me know what you think.
Also, when visiting the website, be sure to make yourself familiar with the buttons I've added throughout the website.

Hawaii's Forgotten Internment Camps

I didn't really know how to share this one with you guys. I didn't think it belonged "In The News" but I didn't really have commentary to add to it. Here it is nonetheless.



The organization mentioned - Japanese Cultural Center - has a Facebook page.

A Review: The Otherside

Geologic of the Seattle rap duo Blue Scholars

The Otherside, a documentary about the growing and unique world of Northwest hip-hop, is an ambitious documentary. Northwest hip-hop is a very weighty topic - rappers from the Northwest are very similar to white rappers: they're a consistent part of the hip-hop aesthetic but there is still something strange about rap from the Puget Sound; it doesn't quite fit with what we are used to hip-hop sounding, acting or looking like.

Fear Itself

Another tragedy befell another community in this country, this time in Federal Way - a suburb near Seattle, Washington:

A shooting that left five people dead at a Federal Way apartment complex Sunday started as a case of domestic violence, police said Monday. It ended with a woman the suspect was living with and three innocent bystanders dead before police shot and killed the suspect.

Officers responded to 911 calls at 9:30 p.m. at Pinewood Village in the 33300 block of 18th Lane S.

Police said the suspect, in his late 20’s, shot and killed a woman in her mid-20’s who he was living with in the complex.

The suspect then went to the parking lot, where he shot two men who confronted him, police said. He then grabbed a shotgun.
