Good Old Fashioned Link Lovin': "Project Runway," TV's Lack of Diversity & Fat Asses

Pin It

Korto I've been reading some very good posts lately so I thought it was time to share some good old fashioned link lovin'.

*An interview with "Project Runway" finalist Korto Momolu at Mahogany Butterfly.  Read about what she's up to next. 

*At Aunt Jemima's Revenge, there's a post about the lack of black people on primetime TV.  Come on Hollywood!  What is the problem?  I know you're all afraid of taking risks---ooooo, I'm scared!---but NBC would be ripe to do something different since no one's watching them anyway.  Aunt Jemima has a boatload of ideas for you in her post.  Just make sure you put her name on a check when you use them.

Last year I wrote a post about the USA cable show, "In Plain Sight" and how it should have had a woman of color in the lead.  Just this morning, Whoopi Goldberg was saying on "The View" that every movie role she's had were written for white actors.  Come on Hollywood!  We've got a black President, for God sakes!

*If you haven't read Black and Married With Kids and you're black and married with kids--go read it.  Even if you're not black or married or with kids.

*Just for fun, take a look at Daisy Church's Drawing A Day.  That's what they are, daily drawings by Daisy.  And they're cool.

*Twitter author guidelines by Karel Vredenburg on his blog.  Just because Twitter only allows tweets to be a maximum of 140 characters, doesn't mean those characters shouldn't be well chosen. 

*I got that previous link via @GrammarGirl on Twitter, and she had her own great suggestions about writing on Twitter.

*Fellow BlogHer CE Mir Kamin has penned a post on BlogHer about how one woman thinks the Kindle will destroy civilization as we know it.

*Speaking of BlogHer, the annual conference in July has sold out.  You can still get on a waiting list, but if you've wait too long, you might be out of luck.

* Finally a special thanks to Gena Haskett of Out On The Stoop for coming up with the banner in my sidebar that says, "In Solidarity Kiss My Big Fat Ass!"  It's in honor of Meghan McCain and was her response on "The View" to radio talk show host, Laura Ingraham for calling her fat.  Ms. McCain decided to paraphrase Tyra Banks who gave the same message to the tabloids last year for picking apart a picture of her in a bathing suit.

Fat ass women united!
