A chap by the name of George Orwell said it best. “In a time of universal deceit — telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

The fight for equal rights continues to hit a fever pitch. Trans people are fighting for basic human decency, my Asian siblings continue to be #WhiteWashedOUT of their own culture. My fellow Wakandans are fighting for their lives and reminding the planet that #BlackLivesMatter.
One of the key battlegrounds has been on social media. PoCs are getting in formation and speaking their truth and embracing their power.
However, they may find themselves on hostile ground when it comes to social media, specifically The Book of Face.
2017 had more than a few surprising gems as far as the small screen goes. While a few excellent shows didn’t make it past the first season, most of them at least gave us a satisfying conclusion.
2017 was bittersweet as we had to say goodbye to some favorites. The usual suspects definitely delivered in their respective seasons. 2017 was a very satisfying year and 2018 is looking to be even better.
As is the tradition from January to December, I compile a list of the best TV shows released throughout the year. One of the main purposes is to promote diverse and progressive works for those searching for quality artistry.
2017 was the year the ladies took center stage. Even though the wrong candidate was sworn in, America voted overwhelmingly for its first female president. The Women’s Revolution continues in the WWE and other sports. This year we saw a number of films which featured quite a number of female protagonists. Whether Amazons, Vixens, villainesses, young superheroines, Valkyries, or God herself, 2017 reminded us all that it’s a woman’s world and I am here for all of it.

In order for a film to make the list, it must pass my Media Litmus Test. Two animated films were so impressive they were included on the primary list and tied for a slot.
So it’s been a minute since I’ve done an update. That’s because I’ve been busy writing and getting some affairs in order which has consumed the last few months.
So recently, the MTV Video Music Awards were presented. I was totally going to watch but then I remembered that I had better things to do with my time and I love myself as a person.
However it did remind me that I have not posted my top albums of 2016. So why am I posting it now. Because my OCD will not allow me to do otherwise. Besides there’s a lot of excellent music out there that you may not know about.
What’s also cool is this is the first time siblings have had featured albums in the same year. Also, some of you may be looking for new music to check out.
