Publisher: Kevin Gaughen

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.


It’s all the news channels can talk about: the White House has been bombed, there's chaos in the streets, and the United States has found itself in the throes of a violent revolution. Surrounded by panicked people, washed-up journalist Len Savitz takes the crisis in stride. It’s nothing that a stiff drink won’t cure. After all, bad news only hurts optimists. But when the mysterious leader of the rebels cherry-picks him to acquire certain information for her, Len is forced to go on an investigative mission where he uncovers millennia-old secrets and unwittingly triggers a chain of disturbing events that will determine the future of humankind. Author Kevin Gaughen’s dynamic debut novel, Interest, creates a seamless alternate reality behind real-world political tensions while keeping pace with its page-turning plot. Interest is as riveting as it is thought-provoking. Who really runs the world we live in? The further Len digs, the darker the answers appear to be…

La Marina Shut Down By New York State Liquor Authority

HBO Latino x Pedro Capo: En Letra de Otro

Source: Michael Loccisano / Getty

It’s looking like it’s going to be a cold winter at La Marina. The hotspot in Manhattan’s NY’s Dyckman neighborhood was recently shut down by the New York State Liquor Authority.

According to Patch.com, La Marina is no longer allowed to serve alcohol and New York state is seeking to permanently revoke its liquor license.

La Marina drew the ire of the state after a bar manager was arrested for drug trafficking. Undercover cops claim they purchased large quantities of cocaine, oxycodone and marijuana from Christian Mendez, 33, who was arrested on Nov. 22. Mender reportedly had 32 ecstasy pills on him at the time of his arrest.

This is just the latest struggle for La Marina. Back in July 2018 it was shut down by the Health Department dues to a poor inspection grade.

La Marina is located at 348 Dyckman Street on the Hudson River.

The State of American Fashion: Alex Bolen

WWD: Please sum up the state of American fashion as you see it?
Alex Bolen: I think it would be awfully presumptuous of me to sum up the state of American fashion. I have one point of view, which is the point of view from our company and that’s a view as a manufacturer, as a retailer, as a designer.
I think that the term “American fashion” is perhaps a bit of an anachronism, one that used to mean some things design-wise. I think American companies were known for certain things, sportswear, whatever — and everybody’s doing everything now. And I don’t say that with any sort of sense of regret. I think it’s an evolution. So the idea of American fashion is a little more amorphous.
Now, New York-based fashion companies, that’s something else. Los Angeles-based fashion companies may have some different opinions on the matter. But I think that we as a group of manufacturers in New York could do a better job of looking out for our common interests.
I am not one who is particularly in favor of a group thing. I don’t think that solutions are one-size-fits-all, and I think that everybody has to, I wouldn’t say fend for

In 2010 David Crowley, an Iraq veteran, aspiring filmmaker and charismatic up-and-coming voice in fringe politics, began production on his film Gray State. Set in a dystopian near-future where civil liberties are trampled by an unrestrained federal government, the film's crowd funded trailer was enthusiastically received by the burgeoning online community of libertarians, Tea Party activists and members of the nascent alt-right. In January 2015, Crowley was found dead with his family in their suburban Minnesota home. Their shocking deaths quickly become a cause célèbre for conspiracy theorists who speculate that Crowley was assassinated by a shadowy government concerned about a film and filmmaker that was getting too close to the truth about their aims. Directed by Grizzly Man producer Erik Nelson and Executive Produced by Werner Herzog, A Gray State combs through Crowley's archive of 13,000 photographs, hundreds of hours of home video, and exhaustive behind-the-scenes footage of Crowley's work in progress to reveal what happens when a paranoid view of the government turns inward – blurring the lines of what is real and what people want to believe.

Fake Lil Wayne Promoter Scams Alabama State University

The shady practice has reached epic levels, particularly online, and Alabama State University is the latest vicim of a fraudulent promoter.

Lil Wayne was expected to perform for homecoming week at the university this week, but officials realized they had been scammed by a person pretending to be the rapper’s promoter.

Wayne’s real manager Cortez Bryant officially ended the speculation.

“It saddens me to say but this concert is fraudulent. Wayne was never booked for this show. Graduating from an HBCU myself I hate that one of ours schools was victimized,” Bryant said. “Fake promoters are the lowest of people on this earth because they are damaging the integrity of artist and most important hurting the fans who are expecting to see their favorite artist. I’m now in contact with Alabama State University and will do everything in my power to work with them to persecute whoever was behind this. It’s not fair to the college students.”

ASU officially said they would seek litigation against those that perpetrated the act of crime against the school and the students.

WHEELING, OH—Feeling the earth shake beneath them as they watched the procession climb over the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains toward their village, sources along the Ohio border confirmed Thursday that the sight of 400 war elephants marching on the horizon marked Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s arrival to the critical swing state. “Be still; some vast legion is headed our way!” said local automotive worker Dustin Collins, 35, who, like thousands of Wheeling residents, heard the rhythmic, thunderous beating of the cavalcade’s 10-foot-wide drums and immediately rushed to a window to gaze upon the advancing ranks. “Behold the standard-bearers at the head of each column, and lo, make out the trumpets’ piercing tones. It can only be the great armies of Hillary emerging from her stronghold in the East!” At press time, a large shadow had been cast over the city after the campaign released thousands …

News in Brief: Death Row Inmate Can’t Deny He Curious To See How State Pulls Off Lethal Injection

STARKE, FL—Shortly after the official scheduling of his execution date, convicted murderer Thomas McGuire admitted to reporters Wednesday that he is curious to see how the state is going to pull off his lethal injection. “I’ve been spending a lot of time praying and trying to find peace, but I have to admit, I also find myself genuinely wondering how they’re going to even get this thing off the ground,” said McGuire, adding that the Florida Department of Corrections and state prosecutors have been talking a big game for years about administering justice for his crimes, but haven’t once mentioned how they plan to circumvent the nationwide pentobarbital shortage and put their money where their mouth is. “Even if they can manage to get an untested mix of chemicals from some distributor, I’m a pretty big guy—there’s a good chance they won’t …

Tyga Owes State Of California $20 G’s

Tyga and his California lifestyle is going to be death of his bank account.

The State of California recently glanced at their records and have learned that Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson has been skimming out on his residential taxes.

Reports TMZ:

Tyga is getting hit from every angle on the money front.

Kylie’s BF just got slapped with a tax lien from the State of California to the tune of $ 19,124.98. He allegedly shorted the Golden State on his 2009, 2010 and 2011 tax bills.

$ 20k would ordinarily be chump change for a rapper at his level, but he already owes his landlord $ 70k in back rent, and has lawsuits piling up.

It’s also not the first time Uncle Sam has come after Tyga … the feds hit Tyga last year with a $ 100k delinquent bill.

Things could be worse, but he’s dating Kylie so he’s got collateral.

Oh, what a time to be alive.

NLA- “No Days Off” + Talks Influences, Need For Girl Groups, & State Of R&B!

Fresh on the scene with their official single “No Days Off” featuring the Migos, NLA consists of Nina Moody from Jackson, Florida, Jessica Benson from Baltimore, Maryland and Janeen Casey from Little Rock, Arkansas. These three uber talented ladies were literally handpicked based on their hard work coming up on the Atlanta music scene. With collective musical influences spanning from Usher to Chris Brown to Destiny’s Child to TLC, Total, and Aaliyah. This group is as diverse as it is magical! NLA is giving you the feel of classic R&B with a club edge, and are more ready than ever (after four years of development) to make their mark on the music scene. NLA is signed to Good Look Entertainment and was curated by industry veterans, Keith Thomas and Terrence Carter. NLA has also recently joined forces with Migos for their new single “No Days Off.”

NLA

Take a listen to their new single below.

AllHipHop Caught up with NLA to talk the state of R&B, the need for R&B groups, their sound and more! Check out the interview below.

With the state of R&B and with the inability of R&B groups to last on today’s scene, how do you plan to make your mark, have longevity, and keep the genre alive?

We plan to put out good music that anyone can relate to. We aren’t really worried because the music matters most. Even though we haven’t seen a R&B group in a while, once you put something out that’s real, people can’t help but to gravitate to it.

Who are your biggest influences?

TLC, SWV, En Vogue, Destiny’s Child, Total……..but of course The Supremes and all that came before us. We pay homage and take a little from each group for inspiration.

Describe your sound.

We really have a urban sound. Right now we have been dabbling in the trap world. We want to make sure we make something the urban community can relate to…. what’s in the streets…. what people can feel.

What sets you apart from other groups?

There aren’t really any other girl groups out at the time, so we don’t really know how to compare or measure where we stand there but, we are really good friends, and what we have hasn’t been pieced together. The chemistry is really there, and we are making music that we love. We understand how important it is and how much of a blessing it is that we genuinely like each other. We all had our journeys, and we are still together. This separates us from the girl group world that has so many issues that people run from.


What do you think of the current state of R&B and what will it take for there to be a resurgence in the genre?

I think the current state of R&B is sad, so to be honest I think that in order for it to be revived, us as a community has to embrace what makes it so amazing. We bring that cool factor. We aren’t trying; it’s really what we do. We are trying to get back to that feeling that you had in the ’90s that made you love music. There are no girl groups off the top of my head that I can recite the lyrics to their songs. That’s sad, but we can definitely bring that [girl group] to the table at this point.

What’s next for NLA?

We are putting together an EP. We don’t have a release date yet, but we have put together an amazing body of work. Right now we have an amazing single out with Migos called “No Days Off” that has been receiving crazy radio play. We are constantly rehearsing and recording. Soon we will have a visual out for “No Days Off”. We are ready to go!

What other artists have you gotten the chance to work with?

We’ve worked with Shanell from Young Money, Rock City, Ester Dean, Yung LA, and Verse Simmonds.


If you had a wish list who would you want to work with?

Drake…..Nicki Minaj…….Fabolous

Lastly, is there anything else you would like to leave with your fans?

Continue to support us, and continue to follow us. Embrace us for what we are trying to do and bring back. We promise we will not disappoint; the music is amazing. It was even hard for us to even pick a single. We just really went back to the basics and hope fans can appreciate what we are bringing. Follow us on @NLAMusic on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Soundcloud.

Islamic State Unleashes Missile Volley On Egyptian Navy Ship

Details are pouring in that the terrorist organization Islamic State, or ISIS,  has unleashed a missile attack on an Egyptian Navy ship off the coast of Rafah in Egypt on Thursday. Not much information has been published about the attack, but there has been a rash of skirmishes in the Sinai Peninsula region which might explain today’s incident.

As reported by The Jerusalem Post, Islamic State’s Egypt-based operation, Sinai Province, said it launched the attack on the naval ship that was resting in the Mediterranean Sea.

More from The Jerusalem Post:

The Egyptian military said earlier a coastguard vessel had exchanged shots with militants off the coast of northern Sinai, an area bordering Israel and the Gaza Strip. The boat caught fire but the incident resulted in no casualties, the military said.

The International Business Times published a tweet that showed the demolished naval ship and the official statement from Islamic State stating more attacks are to come.


From the IBT:

An official IS statement boasted online that the naval attack was the first of its kind and the start of maritme operations in the Mediterranean. A witness, fisherman Abu Ibrahim Mohammed from Gaza, said the vessel was a gunboat that was sailing at a nautical mile off the coast when it caught fire – but the man did not hear the explosion. Later, he saw two smaller boats trying to extinguish the fire. A third boat came and towed the vessel away. He also heard gunshots.

The vessel was tasked with patrolling Egyptian territorial waters and has been used to move army and police personnel to Egypt. According to terror expert Charles Lister, IS probably used an anti-tank guided missile for the attack similar to the ones used in the Sinai.

We will update this post as the story develops.

Hieroglyphics Drop Commemorative Golden State Warriors T-Shirt [PHOTOS]

If you don’t think the Bay Area’s Hip-Hop populus is geeked over the Golden State Warriors’ first NBA championship in 40 years, you better ask somebody.

The solidified Oakland rap crew Hieroglyphics has one of the dopest logos ever created in rap and they put a clever spin on it to commemorate their hometown team’s conquering of LeBron James.

A special commemorative Golden State Warriors T-shirt has been introduced and it features the group’s iconic third eye logo atop the Golden Gate bridge artwork for the team. They’re also pushing a special Wax Poetic Warriors shirt that dons the organization’s royal blue and golden-yellow colors.

Hieroglyphics’ GSW shirt is available via their official store.

Golden State Warriors Win First NBA Title In 40 Years, Andre Iguodala Makes History

Stephen Curry’s miraculous NBA season is has now come full circle after the Golden State Warriors have broken a 40-year drought to win the 2015 NBA Championship.

Via ESPN:

Golden State forward Andre Iguodala was named MVP of the NBA Finals following the Warriors’ 105-97 clinching win Tuesday night, becoming the first player to garner the honor without starting every game.

It also marks the first time the Finals MVP has shared a team with the regular-season MVP (Stephen Curry) since Magic Johnson claimed the Finals honor in 1980 while playing on a Los Angeles Lakers squad with regular-season MVP Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Their 40-year NBA championship drought is finally over.

A half century of misery in Cleveland drags on. LeBron James just didn’t have enough help.

World champs,” Curry said, letting the title sink in. “This is truly special. This group is a special group. From the time we started the season this is what we envisioned and a lot of hard work goes into it, all the way down to the last minute of this game. This is what it’s all about. … We’re going to remember this for a long time.”

James returned from Miami to deliver a title to his home region, but the 30-year-old, left to do most of the work by himself after All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love were injured in the postseason, came two wins shy of giving Cleveland its first pro sports championship since 1964.

They city’s three pro teams — the Cavs, Browns and Indians — have gone a combined 144 seasons without one of them winning it all.

James had 32 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists in Game 6 and was dominant during the series, showing why he’s the world’s best player.

The Warriors were simply the better team.

Sometimes that’s just how the ball bounces. Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors!

The Odd Side: The Free State

Welcome to  another edition of The Odd Side, a column that explores the effects of Hip Hop’s transformation through new sounds.

This week, we will explore some dope artists coming out of the state of Maryland. Maryland might not sound like the next big spot that megastars will come out of, but that shouldn’t stop you from finding about about the music that’s coming out around the area. Luckily for you, a plethora of artists from The Free State has popped up with amazing tracks consecutively on Soundcloud this week, and trust and believe you’ll have them on repeat.

Chris McClenney – Booty (On The Floor)

Chris McClenney was referenced on the last Odd Side post dedicated to Soulection’s best artists. This week, the Maryland-based singer has released a cover of what may have been the 90’s hit “Pump Up The Jam” by Technotronic. With an image from the classic sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel Air, “Booty (On The Floor)” merges together nostalgic 90’s deep house and McClenney’s unique style with the soul.

TEK.LUN – Benjamins (TEK.LUN Remix)

There has been several remixes of CVIRO & GXNXVS’ sick cut Benjamins, but Baltimore producer TEK.LUN might be one of the best top remix it. Starting with echoed vocals from the original to create an intimate vibe, this remix evolves in different ways throughout. At one moment you hear the instrumental move in an upbeat fashion. But when the beat switches, it’s like you’re hearing an brand new version of the same remix while still maintaining it’s cool vibe.

Abhi//Dijon – ECS

Although Abhi//Dijon “Twelve” is fairly old compared to the last two cuts, it was still refreshing to see it show up on my Soundcloud stream.  This Ellicot City singer has taken R&B into an experimental state, using a unique sound established from electronic music to reinforce both his calm vocals and smooth approach. If you’re trying to get into what R&B is becoming, cross your fingers and hope that this dude releases some new music.

Soduh/Black Zheep/ICce – Best Friend Is An Alien

We don’t know what’s been in the air in Baltimore, but the city has a very unique rap scene that many has not been hip to. “Best Friend Is An Alien” is a trippy banger that has been put together well. Soduh supplies the odd chorus and verse to the cut, while Black Zheep and ICce provide their auto-tuned verses also. The song doesn’t attempt to be any deeper than it is, however, it keeps your speakers bumping respectively.

What do you think about this week’s list of tracks? Let me know on Twitter/IG @VBrinkley513

WATCH: A Field Guide to Spotting and Stopping the Homophobic Laws Coming to Your Home State

Don’t look now, but while marriage equality has been spreading across the country, homophobic lawmakers have found a sneaky new way to chip away at civil rights. And not just gay and lesbian civil rights — EVERYONE’S civil rights.

In some cases, they’re passing laws that actually make nondiscrimination against the law. It sounds nuts, but it’s happening right now, and almost nobody’s paying attention.

This is happening because the opponents of marriage equality have finally realized that they’re going to lose. Their backup plan? Pass laws that quietly revoke civil rights across the board, hitting gays and lesbians and everyone else along the way.

In Alabama, for example, Republican State Rep. Mike Ball just proposed HB56, a new law that would allow religious groups to disregard the marriage of any couple they don’t approve of.

He says it’s “not a major change in the law.” But the truth is that it creates a special new license to discriminate. It could be used by hospitals to stop couples from making medical decisions for each other. Or it could force married couples apart at homeless shelters. Mike Ball’s target is probably gay couples, but his law could also be used against interracial couples, or interfaith couples, or anyone with a previous marriage.

Different states are considering over two dozen laws like these around the country. And they’re hard to spot, since they’re usually cloaked in feel-good terms like “religious liberty” or mundane language like “commerce improvement.”

But like the telltale droppings of a rodent infestation, once you know what to look for, you can spot them with ease.

I made this video to explain exactly what these laws do, and how to identify them:

But if you’re in a hurry, here’s what you need to be on the lookout for:

  • Government-Required Discrimination: Laws that require government employees to turn away gay and lesbian couples. Any county clerk who does the right thing and helps an LGBT couple wed will lose their salary and pension.
  • Random Public Discrimination: Imagine if any time you needed a public service, you could be randomly turned away — whether it was riding the bus, asking police for help, or getting a tax refund. These laws let any public employee decide whether or not to help you.
  • Religious Lawbreaking: Some politicians have latched onto a few bakers and florists and photographers who don’t approve of gay and lesbian weddings, and created laws that give those businesses permission to discriminate against LGBTs. But the new exemptions actually go much further, letting any person or business break all kinds of laws, as long as they can claim they’re doing it for religious purposes.
  • Banning Nondiscrimination: This is the most jaw-dropping of all. When these laws pass at the state level, they prohibit towns from providing any new nondiscrimination protection. Once again, LGBTs are the target, but other groups — such as the elderly or veterans — are affected too.

So, obviously, this is a huge looming catastrophe that could do a ton of damage — it’s like the global warming of civil rights.

The good news is that because these laws rely on secrecy, they can be defeated, in part, by exposing their true purpose. I made a second video explaining five simple steps you can take to stop the homophobic backlash:

To sum it up:

  1. Be out. If it’s safe for you to be openly LGBT, do it. And if you’re a straight ally, be out about that too.
  2. Listen to Opponents. When people who oppose nondiscrimination laws talk about things that are important to them (like their job, their home, their marriage, their education, or their family), listen and ask questions.
  3. Tell Your Story. Once you’ve listened to someone talk about the things that matter to them, tell them how you could lose all of those things if these anti-civil-rights laws pass.
  4. Be Vigilant. Watch out for these dangerous laws popping up in your home state. In fact, they may already have been proposed — check the first video above to see if yours is on the map.
  5. Make a Fuss. If a dastardly lawmaker in your state proposes a law like these, don’t let them get away with it. Sound the alarm on social media, make a video about the freedoms you stand to lose, or start a petition.

These tactics were proven to be super-effective with marriage equality, which is why national public opinion has flipped in the span of about a decade.

Homophobic lawmakers know that the tide is turning against them, and these laws are disguised for precisely that reason: their authors know that if people found out what they REALLY do, they’d be a lot less popular.

And that means that discriminatory laws can be defeated, in the same way that marriage bans were defeated. The first step is simply shining a light on them.

Arizona Schools Chief Says Hip-Hop Classes Violated State Ban

John Huppenthal, an outgoing Republican school superintendent with a questionably racist past, used his last day in the office to issue possible funding sanctions on a school because it taught a class on Hip-Hop. In a letter issued this past Friday, Huppenthal is urging the state to enforce withholding of financial support to the school.

Huppenthal’s letter addressed to Tuscson Unified School District superintendent H.T. Sanchez took direct aim at the district’s decision to teach “culturally relevant” classes which is out of step with a state law. Cholla Magnet High School is mentioned in Huppenthal’s correspondence, which taught a history class, “Culturally Relevant Mexican American Perspective,” and used lyrics from the rap-rock group, Rage Against The Machine.

An English class at Cholla Magnet High, “Culturally Relevant African American Perspective,” was said to have included from KRS-One’s “An Introduction to Hip-Hop” eassy.

More from the Arizona Daily Star:

John Huppenthal, who lost in the election, said in a news release Friday that the state can decide to withhold funding from Tucson Unified School District for the courses.

“During my tenure as Superintendent, I have been closely monitoring the status of the Tucson Unified School District’s culturally relevant curricula to ensure that all TUSD students, regardless of their race or ethnic background, have access to a high quality education,” Huppenthal said in the release. “After a thorough review of materials from TUSD’s culturally relevant courses, I find that the district has failed to meet several provisions of the 2012 Settlement Agreement.”

The classes replaced TUSD’s now defunct Mexican American Studies courses, which were declared in violation of state law.

“I am deeply concerned by the fact that the noncompliance appears to extend beyond classes taught from the Mexican American perspective and now also includes classes taught from the African American perspective,” the release reads.

State Governer Jan Brewer, who once famously scolded President Barack Obama in his face, signed into law in 2010 a ban on race-related coursework. The idea was that these classes potentially promoted “resentment” towards other races.

Huppenthal was embroiled in controversy last year when he confessed to writing a series of racially iinsensitiveblog posts. Huppenthal tearfully apologized for his words,but it wasn’t enough to save him from losing his re-election bid in August.
