“Body Inhabited By Conscious Spirit, Birthed to Battle the Physical Nature of Its Chosen Vessel in a World Corrupted and Set for Self Destruction.

Aberrican Me – The Ross Capicchioni Story

What Ross didn't know was that his "friend" was ambushing him in an attempt to murder him as part of his gang initiation. What followed was a horrible sequence off events that would push the boundaries of human endurance, courage and the will to survive.

The Night H4 Saved Christmas IV

As the holiday's draw near, a season of gift giving begins to build it's presence. The kids bundled up, lay restless in bed with thoughts of their presents. The Christmas lists are underway, of all the toys and things kids need to learn and play. In our blessings we take comfort, with love and warmth we hold close to our covers. Yet still we remember, of the children made of wish's, in their young hearts so tender. Reminded of the children who sadly go without. And of the children spending their holidays fighting illness in hospital gowns. So, each year we we gather our wits and we muster our might, hatching our plan to save yet another Christmas Night.

Uganda Push’s for Gay Death Penalty’s

The holidays are right around the corner, for many a season of giving and sharing joy with our loved ones. In American tradition, we often take our privileges for granted and tend to stay safe in our bubbles, away from the social wars waging in foreign places. In the U.S., we have come far in the fight for equality and human rights. From civil rights issues to gay rights, just this year some states have passed laws finally allowing same sex marriage and civil unions, a sign of slow but evident progress. But across the globe, there is a season of fear and hate brewing to a boil. A reminder that all is not well in the world. Uganda’s Parliamentary Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has told the AP that the Kill the Gays bill will be made law before the end of 2012. Lawmakers in the country are even calling it a “Christmas gift.”

Mike B presents Lyricist Lounge

I have known Mike B for over a couple years now and I have witnessed his hard work, dedication and follow through first hand. From the turntables to being present in the scene supporting his comrades, not to mention volunteering his time and services for community causes. Always remaining humble and positive as he grinds his way up in the scene, regardless of his accomplishments. When I found about his new brain child, Lyricist lounge, I was curious to find out what inspired him. When we spoke on the upcoming event, he was happy to share his vision and motivation with me.

ArtLoveMagic Workshop Flyer

ALM’s Interactive Kids Workshop

I have been blessed to be a part of ArtLoveMagic since the early stages. Beyond what I have learned from the dedicated, self-sacrificing and exceptionally talented people that make this organization a reality, I have also been able to volunteer, perform and participate in the production end of some amazing events. Developing great relationships along the way I have watched an empowering journey of powerful growth, expanding reach and positive community impact. Movements like this are by no means a dime a dozen. I consider it a pleasure, blessing and gratifying opportunity to be a part of this organization and what it represents. They have been an inspirational energy for my own growth, both, artistically and in my personal evolution. The energy cultivated and shared by the ArtLoveMagic community is a positive force well worth support, encouragement and contribution.
