I wasn’t even going to address this silly situation, but all day yesterday I kept seeing this topic pop up on my timeline on both Twitter, and on Facebook, and it was starting to irk me, for lack of better terms.

As many fans of Marvel (like myself) and beaucoup of African Americans in general are gearing up for the release of the Black Panther, some people are losing their ever loving minds on social media over the fake news of a boycott of the film due to one of it’s stars, Michael B. Jordan, allegedly dating a latina woman.

After the Killmonger actor was spotted with a woman who may be his girlfriend, a rumor started that many angry black women were so upset at this, that “they” refused to see the film at all.  Pshhhhhh….. Whoever “they” are,  they certainly don’t speak for me.  Of course, many people have searched to find a source to this so called boycott, but nothing was ever found… except, for this post from a profile on Instagram which seems a little suspect if you ask me: View Post

I actually haven’t owned a “decent” camera in probably ten or more years.  With that said, I finally have taken the time to write a review for my new favorite photography toy that was purchased with intentions to use specifically for my blog.  The Canon Powershot SX530 is very versatile, quickly taking the place of my cell phone when it comes to snapping all types of interesting shots.  Recently, I took it with me to various places in my hometown, in order to really figure out all of it’s manual controls and to get a good feel for it’s fast zoom lens.  Read on to find out how much fun I had with this easy to handle cam.

I’ve always liked trying out new social sites.  I still remember all the days and nights I enjoyed chatting on Collegeclub, and the beginnings of MySpace and also Hi5.  Who would have thought today of what a success that Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have become???  And now, here is Snapchat.  It’s been out since September of 2011, but it’s taken me almost 6 years to even get curious enough to download this mobile app.

Snapchat is basically a social app used to send videos and photo messages that disappear after a short amount of time – only 24 hours.  You can send these messages to everyone on your friends-list, a chosen few, or download them and keep them private for yourself.  I can easily see why teenagers would love using this app, and why older folks would easily get confused by it.  Shoot, I still don’t know the ins and outs of all Snapchat’s features yet.  I have already accidentally sent some people that I follow – including Michelle Obama, a rather silly photo or two that I didn’t mean for them to ever, ever see.  So, I try now to be extra careful when maneuvering through the screens whenever using  it.
