Chapter 4 Michael Jackson Dances back from the Grave!

April, 1980; Gary, IN

Michael Jackson“Hey Mike,” Gregory Hines asks the captain of the Gary, Indiana, Team Breakdancing Freaks, “why we gotta keep this guy around? What does he have to offer the team?”

It was two days before Easter and the weather had been warm enough over the past few days to allow the group to practice outdoors.

Michael Jackson just smiles sagely as Debbie Allen also chimes in, “Yeah, he doesn’t dance. He just sits there and watches us.”

“I have my reasons,” is all Michael will say.

“I’m sure you do,” says Patrick Swayze as he and Jennifer Beals jump up from practicing their windmills.Debbie Allen

“So what is his job, Michael?” asks Janet. “Is he the business manager or the mascot?”

Michael Jackson looks over at Mel Brooks and considers the possibilities.

“I suppose if those are my options…

Sneak peek at the Vampire Dancer Saga Part 5, Fan Fiction: In 2017 Slavery never ended

Copyright 2017 Shalimar Ali

In 2017, Slavery never ended

800px-Thomas_Edison2Sallie Cherry is a light-skinned slave in 1890. She has never worked the fields. But kept inside Master’s house to keep her skin light.

This made her more acceptable to do light duties like washing dishes, laundry and tending to her slave master’s children.

Even though slavery ended officially on Dec. 8, 1865, the house niggers and field niggers were not aware that it ended.

Ro’Zha and Drake had travelled back to 1890 to continue their quest to change the outcome of slavery.

They asked each other, how and why a situation like slavery ever came to be?

They looked this situation from the perspective of the Slave Owner and the Slave. How did this come to being?

From the slave master perspective it was 100% win-win. They can play GOD!

BillyBobThorntonHWOFFeb2012cropThis means they can kill any human. Rape any black girl or woman. And to boot, get free labor to build their county?

How and why would a slave go along with this unfair existence?

A simple answer: BRAINWASHING!

This does not mean that the slaves were stupid, ignorant or dumb.

It just means that they were outnumbered and had a language barrier.

It is pretty easy to be brainwashed if you don’t understand the language. And see the white men lynch other blacks on a daily basis. Also rape black girls and women everyday. And kill and torture all blacks.

There was a sense of hopelessness for your survival. If you just simply wanted to live, you had to abide by what the white man said. This form of brainwashing to survive to live, endured, even to the year 2017. Not as subtle as it was in 1890, but a road map to make sure that you lived, even through compliance.

Halle_Berry_by_Gage_SkidmoreSallie Cherry was no different. Even though she was light-skinned, she had been raped by many white men on the plantation and was also beaten.

The slave owner, Bobby Billy, often entertained celebrities like Thomas Edison.

Thomas Edison visited visited Bobby’s plantation in St. Louis, MO. Thomas was there to show off his new movie picture and get entries into his movie contest called the Racso Awards for the best movies.

Even though this award show was pretty new, no slaves had been nominated, except for Pattie Daniels for her role playing the black mammy in the Winds are Gone. Leanna Thorne was a successful actress loved by both blacks and whites. But she insisted that her film roles be successful and truthful to the fact that slavery was over. So she refused to play mammy roles or slave master concubine roles.

Leanna Thorne also refused to allow nudity or sex in any of her movies. So when her movie, the Weather is Stormy was released, there was the utmost respect for her as an actress and for the positive role model she portrayed.

Thomas Edison bragged about how he had so much respect from the movie industry. He said that his movie studio, Gate of the Lion, wanted entries for the Rasco Awards.

Charlize_Theron_Cannes_2015_2Bobby Billy was good friends with two actresses, Thera Charlize and Janet Gaynor. Janet Gaynor was best known for her work in 7th Heaven.

Thera Charlize was interested in getting nominated for a movie similar to Mandingo. Thera wanted to be nude and have sex with a black prison guard. She proposed having Den Wash play her leading man to Gate of the Lion pictures.

Louie Mayer Oscar was outraged. He threatened to lynch Den Wash for even considering having sex with a nude white woman.

He said if Thera ever made that type of movie, she would be tarred and feathered and then lynched like a nigger.

When Sallie heard that Thera was threatened, she volunteered to be nude and have sex with a white man on screen. They forced her to have sex with them anyway, so why not?

Denzel_Washington_croppedShe felt there was nothing wrong with being a slave masters concubine, so why not get paid for it? She was a free slave, so why not be a whore?

So Sallie begged Thomas Edison to film her and Bobby Billy having sex in a film that had a similar plot to Mandingo, but reversed. Then she asked Tom Edison to nominate her for a Rasco award.

The Slaves had a support group called the pecans or PCAAN for short. The PCAAN group was mighty pissed about blacks not being nominated for leading roles for the Rasco awards,

The PCAAN was going to boycott the Rasco awards and made sure Louie Mayer Oscar knew about the boycott.

Louie did not want a boycott. So he devised a plan. Lets make sure those niggers get an award. But the award has to be one where the niggers are degraded.

Lena_Horne_1961So that means that Leanna Thorne will never be nominated. Her films show a positive portrayal of black womanhood.

Thera Charlize and Den Wash went ahead and filmed the movie Mandingo because they thought it might win an award. Before the Rasco ceremony, both actors where found hanging from a tree, lynched.

The reverse of Mandingo was accepted by the Rasco awards and in fact gave Sallie Cherry a Rasco for best lead actress.

Drake and Ro’Zha had snuck into the Award ceremony and watched from the kitchen. Since Sallie could not accept her award.

Sallie gave her Rasco acceptance speech in the kitchen, surrounded by only black slaves, Drake and Ro’Zha.

Janet_Gaynor-publicityRo’Zha interrupted her speech and simply asked why, are you brainwashed?

A time traveller gives the slaves hope for freedom

Black History TimelineChapter 4: Granny conjures powerful magic to change slavery

The two most prominent slaves that Granny met were named Drake and Big Daddy Ram. Both were dark, large men, tall with wide shoulders. Ram was a bit bigger, and had a beard. Drake lacked any facial hair, and had sharper eyes. He was the more conniving and possibly cruel of the two, though Ram was sure as hell no push over. They both listened thoughtfully to Granny’s talk over dinner, thinking on each and every word she said. Their acceptance of her stories of the future with a black president persuaded the other slaves almost as much as the photographic evidence.

Then, Granny got to the part about her plan for Drake, and the two large men really started to listen. They leaned in close as Granny spoke. Drake of course, being a vampire, had the special moonlight ring and cane from Granny, allowing him to be outside in direct sunlight. He held a powerful presence over the others, who thought him blessed or cursed, or at least in some way divinely chosen for a great purpose. Granny confirmed such thinking when she explained the basics of her plan for Drake and for her people:

“You, Drake. Yes, I know your name well. You will play the most important part in things to come, and I say that boldly now for everyone to hear!”

Election 2016 vote for Drake on the Vampire ticket! Wait! He went back in time and stole it!

Occult Women

Chapter 2 Drake charms the witches

The news was awash with stories of members of the US military suddenly turning on their fellows in a manner similar to the zombies that most people knew from movies and TV. In barracks, in parade fields, in training grounds, and on airfields, groups of moaning, deranged soldiers suddenly grabbed and bit into the remaining “normal” personnel. Public concern was in an uproar of hysteria. TV pundits speculated endlessly on the cause of the outbreaks, how much it was the president’s fault, and what danger the outbreaks posed to the general public. America’s enemies celebrated, and America’s allies quaked with fear, especially just to the north and south in Canada and Mexico.

But Vice President Drake brought good news to his live news conference. He looked as handsome, brave, and sharp as ever, in his black suit and red tie, with his hair neatly combed and gelled. He spoke to the public from an undisclosed location in Hawaii. It was night-time there, and the Vice President stood outside, with many electric lights shining on him and his lectern.

“My fellow Americans,” he began, in his calm, deep, voice, “For the past two days, I have shared your concern, and, I wholly admit, fear, over the recent violence and chaos on our nation’s military bases. Many of our service members, enlisted and officers alike, have fallen victim to whatever infection or mass-psychosis this is. Many more of our brave men and women in uniform have fallen victim to these savage, cannibalistic attacks.” Drake gave a dramatic pause before continuing, knowing he had the nation’s full attention. The President had apparently been trying to keep the matter secret, and had made no public address yet.

Coming soon to Amazon and Audible: The Vampire Dancer Saga Part 4

Long, long ago, back in the days when the world was new and magic ran wild, there existed a kingdom by the name of Kaw. This Kaw was no ordinary kingdom: it was ruled by Queen Leanna, the magical peacock being, who could turn into a human form one time each month, during the full moon. Leanna ruled her kingdom wisely and also took pride in raising her daughter chicks in the proper ways to catch worms. These daughters were unbelievably precious to their mother, and each unique. One of them, Tam, was not a bird but rather a flying scorpion, with a brilliantly shiny shell, a sharp stinger, and fearsome claws. Sherry was a black swan, who was as graceful swimming atop the clear waters of the kingdom as she was soaring through the air. Kandy was a parrot, one of the most clever sorts of birds. And Gia, like her mother, was an elegant and proud peacock, especially blessed with the powers of a witch. The most powerful of Gia’s spells was the one known as Faint of Heart. If Gia’s could touch her flesh to that of someone else, she could use this spell to rob the victim of all convictions, courage, and willpower. Gia quickly became the favorite and most powerful of her mother’s chicks. Her natural talent for magic, combined with her ferocious devotion to learning and mastering it, made her a powerful and seductive witch. She gained the ability to remain in a human form for as long as she wished.

Together, let’s save the Constantine TV Show, Friday April 24th!

Constantine1How many times has your favorite TV show been near the cancellation axe and you wanted the show to be saved?

I have many shows that I wish could have been saved, such as Dracula, Angel, The Tomorrow People, Star Crossed, The Secret Circle, Dallas reboot, Super Fun Night, Raising Hope, Sarah Connor Terminator, The Dollhouse, Firefly!Cast

I could go on an on.  Constantine reminds me of Supernatural, gone wild.  You have the Angel character, a mystic, bad-ass nun, demons trying to get babies!  Weird, right?

I’m so glad that NBC is giving Constantine one last chance to get viewers.  So if you have not had a chance to check out this great show and awesome companion to Grimm, then please join the Constantine streaming event on NBC, Hulu, & VOD.

What’s for dinner tonight? Meatloaf!

WP_000378Growing up, my Mom always baked meatloaf in the oven.  It was a traditional meatloaf with ground beef and cubed toast.  My Aunt Forestine kicked it up a notch by adding cheese or using sausage with beef.

So for many years I baked my meatloaf like my Mom in the oven.  As I began collecting slow cookers, I had the courage to try meatloaf in a slow cooker.

Meatloaf April 11 2015 008It was a good choice.  Even though I miss the “brown” edges from an oven, the slow cooker has an advantage to where you can cook the entire meal in one pot.

So I put the veggies on the bottom of the crock pot.  Use whatever your family likes, for example carrots and potatoes diced, frozen vegetables, etc.  The veggies end up with so much flavor and sometimes steal the show from the meatloaf.  The veggies are a bit greasy from the meat on top, but still very tasty.  Optional, you Meatloaf April 11 2015 017can also use the slow cooker lifting pan as pictures below left, for separation.

With some recipes, I don’t like to experiment.  For example, I try to cook my Fritters the same way, instead of adding too many variations.  When I cook scrambled eggs, I get bored and sometimes like to try a a different cheese or use buttermilk or sour cream.

The meatloaf that I am cooking for dinner tonight has some new WP_000368ingredients.  I did not have any fresh or canned carrots, so I used frozen mixed vegetables instead.  I used 5 potatoes, diced and added some jalapeno peppers to the veggies and meat mixture for some heat.

Did you notice the gloves in the photos?  The gloves are less than $2 for 5 sets and are really handy for chopping onions or mixing meatloaf.  Garlic, put cloves in a plastic bag and crush them with a hammer.

Meatloaf April 11 2015 021It’s nice to kick it up a notch like Aunt Forestine and try something new with a recipe.  I how this one inspires you for the next time you desire Meatloaf.

Do you remember where you lived?

Wayne AveI was thinking about how much junk I have accumulated from my houses in all these years and where did it come from.  Then realized, I don’t remember every place that I have lived.

Some younger people may have only lived in less than 5 houses, parent’s home, dorm, apartment, etc.

But being older, means that you have lived in several homes.

So I tried my best to recap every place I’ve lived, permanent addresses, where the mail was changed.

  1. Current address, Wayne Avenue
  2. East 75th
  3. East 81st
  4. East 76th
  5. East 42nd
  6. 44th Street
  7. 45th Street
  8. Townhouse VG
  9. 2 Bdrm VG
  10. 1 Bdrm VG
  11. East 76th
  12. Montgall, with Aunt
  13. College Dorm, different city
  14. Montgall, with Dad
  15. East 76th
  16. Woodland
  17. 10th Street
  18. Flora
  19. 10th Street
  20. Wayne Miner
  21. Not sure where I lived when I was born?

ExteriorI’m not even sure if that list is accurate.  I will need to check with my siblings, they may remember more

My favorite place of all is my current home on Wayne.  It is a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath 2248 Square foot center hall Colonial built in 1923.  I hope I live to see it’s 100th anniversary.  I love Colonial homes and the 3 homes I have purchased have all been Colonial style.  And my mom’s house on East 76th was also Colonial style.

An older home means lots of projects.  And I LOVE home June 18 2013 038projects.  So far, I have had all of the original plumbing replaced, I have installed 9 new outdoor lights, 2 new outdoor receptacle sockets, 2 new outdoor faucets, replaced most of the light plate switches, the ceiling light in the foyer, 3 kitchen lights that came from my house on East 75th.

And I am not done.  I have one more matching ceiling light to install on my deck off the master bedroom.  I want to do a deck or patio off the French doors leading from the Sunroom.  Also replace the garage doors and fence.  I might tackle the kitchen one day and add granite, a backsplash and paint or replace cabinets.

It may seem like a lot of projects, but in the end, it’s my favorite location and I love the layout of the home.  Two things you can’t change:  the location and home layout/structure.
