All Ball World Kicks Off The Big Game With Free Movie and .99 Cent Children’s Books Releases

0
LOS ANGELES — With only days until The Big Game, Chuckle TV Multimedia Network is bringing the zany animated All Ball Band’s football character “Pig” to the 53rd annual championship week celebration. In an effort to highlight the importance of “school sports” and “reading,” the new network is presenting the release of an original free mini-movie and a collection of nine children’s books each for only .99 cents. The twelve-minute film short, “Pig is Chosen Again” is an original animated film produced by Detroit native and Motown’s singing group “Four Tops” member Jim White. The captivating tale is designed to delight young football fans all over the world.  The Grammy Award winning, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers The Four Tops, provide the soundtrack for several of the song selections, and Michael “Boogaloo Shrimp” Chambers known for his role as “Turbo” in the 1984 cult classic film “Breakin'” and the 1984 hit sequel “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo,” returns as the voice behind the kid character of Jimmy.  The mini-movie short film “Pig is Chosen Again” can be viewed on Game Day at http://chuckletv.com/ and on ROKU, AMAZON FIRE TV STICK and APPLE TV.
The All Ball Band is a group of animated sports balls that sing and play instruments. In “Pig is Chosen Again,” we find the band’s funky drummer Pig, as in “pigskin,” as the rambunctious young football sent from the mystical magical place known as All Ball World. Pig is once again chosen by the Ball World’s leaders The Elder Balls to come to Earth and serve as the official football used in the kickoff at The Big Game. Pig’s only nemesis is Victor Pinball, an evil wizard who lives inside a pinball machine. On Pig’s journey to earth, it becomes a real “Ball of Confusion” as the Temptations 1970’s hit song ensues when Pig meets a youngster named Jimmy who helps foil Victor Pinball’s relentless efforts to stop Pig from playing in the championship game.
“This video is only the beginning of the All Ball World story,” says White. “Every one of the over 100 animated characters who live in All Ball World are fully prepared to bring their comedic take to any subject, with an appeal to children and adults alike. The Big Game celebration provides a wonderful occasion to continue to build and grow an audience for these delightful characters.”
In the collective spirit of Charles Schulz’s “Peanuts,” Stan Lee’s “Marvel,” and the Walt Disney franchise, The All Ball World animated series of books and films creates characters with a conscience in a contemporary conversation. A series with equal parts education and entertainment, All Ball World is natural content for integrated media, extending its cross-platform reach via television, film, Internet, music production, book publishing, comics, mobile apps, computer and console video games, and live events.
All Ball World combines two of the most potent influences on youth culture, music and sports. The various presentations offer children a fresh perspective on critical issues in familiar language, giving them playful, relatable examples of how to navigate a world that changes every millisecond. Children are guided to respectfully connect with friends and family, to love the process of learning and to discover who they want to be as they grow into adulthood by interacting in situations that are relatable and accessible to viewers of all ages, delightfully driving each storyline to its goal.
Chuckle TV is producing integrated content that seamlessly engages all markets in every available media format, connecting the extraordinary promise of new technology with the time-honored value of quality storytelling.  In addition to the animated short film, the “All Ball World” eBooks are available starting The Big Game Day throughout Spring Break for only .99 cents each, with titles that include: “The All Ball Band,” “The Funny Balls,” “Girl Power Balls,” “All Ball Super Heroes,” “The Billiards,” “All Ball World,” “The Protectors,” “The Elder Balls” and “The Bad Balls.” The audio books are available online at Amazon and other online retail outlets.
The Chuckle TV network features wholesome original content for kids, fashion, music, celebrity interviews, lifestyles, food and sports. In addition to its American content, Chuckle TV also premieres television and film entertainment from Latin America, Bollywood, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Chuckle TV’s original mission was to provide “free” quality short form content for mobile application but once it got the attention of national and international providers and media platforms such as Comcast, the network retrofitted itself to include longer content in the future.

Los Angeles – Every year event host Kevin Rouse and his Rouse House Entertainment crew produce some of Los Angeles’ most memorable special events and from the looks of February, this year will be no different. Rouse, in conjunction with playwright and creator Que Allen King and Lawrence Bailey Entertainment, are setting off Black History Month in a big way as they bring, direct from the Las Vegas Strip, the stage play, “Can A Woman Raise A Man” to the West Angeles Performance Arts Center. The play will run for two shows only, on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. and a celebrity red carpet at 6:00 p.m. with the evening performance at 7:30 p.m. The West Angeles Performance Arts Center is located 3020 Crenshaw Blvd. “Can A Woman Raise A Man” is internationally renowned for being the first African American stage play with residency on the Las Vegas Strip.  Tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com.

King is the director of PLAY Magazine, a leading magazine covering urban theater around the world. He has also been inducted into the Walker African-American Museum & Research Center in Las Vegas.
“This play is phenomenal,” cites Rouse. “The message behind ‘Can A Woman Raise A Man’ is a tremendous one and will touch lives and hearts.

Math College Professor Turned Rapper Chad Rico Travels to a “New Level” in Music Video Release

0
Richmond, CA – When college math professor Chad Rico ventured off into the rap game, he knew he was taking a calculated risk.   As an entrepreneur, financial analyst, clothing manufacturer/designer, filmmaker and world traveler, many wondered if the teacher turned artist could really pull it off. When Chad dropped his own brand of mathematical science with a seven track EP entitled “Myth” and a debut single, “New Level,” naysayers had to concede that the educator made a move to the head of the class! Now with the release of his video for “New Level,” Chad is proving that his ‘myth’ status does indeed add up!
“New Level” is

Actor Glenn Plummer
and artist Chad Rico

a total elevation experience. More a mini-movie than a music video, the three minutes plus immersion finds Chad as the captain of a spaceship and guardian of the galaxy. He and his crew travel to Planet Crunk and engage in an intergalactic shootout with Diablo Grande, played by veteran actor, Glenn Plummer, and his men, all in an attempt to rescue alien damsel in distress, Sasha Verde, the beautiful green space woman! The set, costumes, body art, makeup and weaponry all convey an artistic creativity that is essentially next level from what is normally delivered by new independent artists.

“I’m extremely grateful for all the positive feedback I’ve received since the release of ‘Myth.’ With the ‘New Level’ video, I wanted to deliver something special to my fans and supporters. As an independent artist, I believe it is important to stay cutting edge and creative. For me, “New Level” is a vision and a commitment and ‘myth’ status is my goal,” expresses Chad.
Produced by Chad’s own company, Gold & Gems Production in conjunction with In Your Face Films, the video was directed by Damon Jamal with input from legendary film producer Haqq Shabazz. Justin Amey wrote the treatment, Pashur provided the body art and Susan Gray served as stylist. “New Level” was filmed in the San Fernando valley, right outside of Los Angeles and one of the locations was from the original “Star Trek” set.

A Belizean American, Chad’s legend began at birth when he was born in South Central Los Angeles, in the same hospital and at the same time as Grammy Award winning artist Kendrick Lamar. Currently repping for the Bay area, Chad’s family relocated to Northern California where he now resides. The esteemed UC Berkeley alumni attended the university on academic scholarship at the age of 16! With a B.A. in African American Studies and Applied Math, and a masters in math from San Francisco State University, Chad also spent eight months in London in a graduate business program. The intentional student turned teacher has taught math at Contra Costa College, City College San Francisco, Berkeley City College and College of Alameda. The 31-year old has traveled to over 35 countries. In addition to his music company Gold & Gems, he has owned and operated his Gold & Gems clothing business for the past five years.
The young college professor is also working with producer Haqq Shabazz to executive produce and release a film next year. “Party Bus” will be based on his adventures and misadventures while traveling. Chad’s next video release will be “Northface in September” from Gold & Gem’s artist, Kam Krzy.

Their development team is available, aware of, and accessible to our needs and together we plan to bring the best game ever to the fans, the contenders and the sport,” expresses Gilliam. “We have been working with PlayStakes for the past few months, establishing a great vibe and a fun growth environment. We are now ready to move forward as a self-contained unit with the same mindset.”

“Crypto Boxer is a uniquely creative concept,” cites Bill Lavin, the general manager of PlayStakes. “We consider ourselves cutting edge innovators and developing this game presents another opportunity to distinguish ourselves amongst the competition. Crypto Boxers introduces a novel way of utilizing blockchain technology to bring e-sports to the next level. We look forward to going the rounds with them for a final knockout win.” Lavin was a pioneer in online gaming, spearheading the launch of one of the first online casinos which led to the development of a pay-for-performance marketing system, and he founded MasterCoin Corporation, whose charter was to deliver electronic wallet technology.

Crypto Boxers, because it is developed on the blockchain, presents a uniquely exciting opportunity that will set the standard for the sports gaming industry for years to come.”

Gamers engage in virtual matches with the boxer of their choice, creating an actual ‘gloves on’ in the ring experience! By offering gamers a unique opportunity to compete while exploring the new realm of digital currency via their wins and losses, Crypto Boxers will do for cryptocurrency what Madden did for the game industry. Moving beyond traditional console games, the game allows the player the opportunity to not only just compete, but to also earn upon winning as the game’s virtual boxers reap digital rewards for their wins.
Players will be able to place bets on their characters, participate in tournaments, and enjoy match-making capabilities that can only be done with digital assets and smart contracts. Players of Crypto Boxers take on the role of controlling the boxer in the match, yet outside of the match, they essentially serve as managers for the characters they own, dictating when to train a boxer, how to improve the boxers gameplay, and at what point should a new character be acquired or let go.
Official announcements of professional boxers joining the game are forthcoming. Presales for Crypto Boxers is slated for spring 2019. Professional boxing entities interested in actual game involvement can contact Andrew Gilliam at A.gilliam@menminesmedia.com .

“Some Women Prefer Hell” by Modi

Markus Watson /Your Video Ninja,
With her mom as her foremost role model, she acts as she has seen, and falls into the arms of her very own bad boy, 18-year-old high school senior EJ. Kana is quickly propelled into womanhood, coming to a deep understanding of owning one’s choices and dealing with the consequences. A revealing narrative and think piece, told in the voice of a young teen, “Some Women Prefer Hell” will pull on the hearts of women young and old as the curse of “crazy love syndrome” is a universal one defying age and logic.
Budding book author Modi is following in the footsteps of her celebrity mom, Tamera Fair, an actress, on-air personality and founder of Chicago’s distinguished Premier Child Care Centers. Carrying on her mother’s legacy, she has held reign as the CEO of Premier Child Care Centers since the age of 23. As the author of the new release, “Some Women Prefer Hell,” Modi, now 25, is carving out her own path and claiming her own personal legend.
A graduate of Fisk University, with a degree in English, Modi fell in love with literature. In fact, words became her lifesaver when she found herself battling a serious bout of depression. Depression can be a crippling disease, but Modi was resilient and refused to let it get the best of her. At the beckoning of her therapist, she took pen to paper and “Some Women Prefer Hell” was born! Her first entry into the world of urban literature, the book has already garnered her media accolades with appearances on Fox32 in Chicago as well as Chicago’s WGN-TV.

“It was a deep heartbreak that rendered me immobile and depressed. I created Kana in “Some Women Prefer Hell” as an extension of my persona and my personal pain. Sometimes the path toward love that we choose is hell. But no one can tell us anything different until we get the lesson for ourselves,” offers Modi.  “So many women suffer from unrequited love. On the surface, yes, it may seem like we prefer hell, but our real preference is just to be loved. Kana, as a young teenager, grows into this understanding, and her life lessons were my life lessons. Hopefully the reader can garner some teachings from her wild and crazy tale as well!”
Modi is raising the bar for millennials everywhere. As the CEO of Chicago’s Premier Child Care Centers, the enterprising young executive stays busy overseeing four state-of-the-art locations that have served the city for over 30 years now. Educational activities incorporated into the vast curriculum include French, Japanese, Spanish, computer classes, etiquette classes and Pre-Fit (preschool gym). In addition, each classroom suite includes a computer lab, library, cafeteria, indoor playground, on-site kitchen, and soft top outdoor playground.
Visioning a full fledged “Modi-vational” empire with the intention of inspiring her peers to keep pushing forward, no matter what love brings or doesn’t bring, Modi is planning a movie sequel to the book, additional fiction releases, and she has launched a “Some Women Prefer Hell” product line that includes lashes, hoodies and scarves.
Some women prefer hell, but Modi knows heaven is the real answer.  Keep cool with Modi at http://somewomenpreferhell.com/ and on Instagram at @justmodi_ and on Facebook at @Some Women Prefer Hell.

Fashion Designer Mieka Joi Celebrates Rich Girl Candy Clothing Five Year Anniversary Fusing EDM and Hip Hop Culture

0

Chicago – When clothing designer Mieka Joi introduced her Rich Girl Candy concept in 2013, fashionistas knew she was unveiling an imaginative new concept.  Fusing the psychedelic exuberance of the electronic dance music (EDM) lifestyle with the street savvy of hip hop culture, Mieka’s Rich Girl Candy exploded on the fashion scene with an abundance of colorful creativity. She captured the hearts of women who wanted to feel as electric as the music that sound tracked their lives.

Five years later, her line has expanded beyond an activewear brand comprised of just unique hoodies, hats and t-shirts.  With new additions that include her wildly popular rainbow inspired Rich Girl Candy hair extensions, shimmering Rich Girl Candy jewelry, eclectic Rich Girl Fox Fur slides, and a fun assortment of festival gear and accessories, Mieka Joi has assembled a treasure chest of opulence for luxurious shopping adventures.  Actress and media personality LaLa Anthony, recording artist Monica, performing artist Teyana Taylor and rapper Trina are just a sampling of the celebrity factor who now rock and roll with Rich Girl Candy glam.

 

 

 

Juggling entrepreneurship with motherhood, fashion and the limelight run in the family for Mieka Joi. A Chicago native, Mieka Joi is the former longtime girlfriend of NBA player Derrick Rose. Their young son, six-year-old Derrick Rose Jr., has already grabbed his own headlines as a celebrity child model and accompanies his mom on many of her business ventures.

Though Rich Girl Candy is celebrating a successful five years, Mieka Joi is no newcomer to fashion. In fact, she will tell you that she was born into it! “My mom has always been into fashion, so I was her dress-up doll as a child. Even after delivering me, my mom and dad brought me home in a Gucci GG signature fabric bassinet and baby blanket!  As a child, department stores were always my preference over playgrounds!  My mother’s good friend was well renowned fashion designer Barbara Bates.  I remember going to Barbara’s shop when I was six years old. We would design purses and clothes for my dolls, and then she would help me sew and make them.”

Mieka Joi initially launched her career as a stylist.  She attended Clark University for mass media arts, majoring in public relations, marketing and advertising and began an internship at Roc-a-Wear during her sophomore year, assisting the district buyer for the brand in Atlanta.  Her first business, “Socialite Styling,” offered fashion, makeup, and hair consulting to everyone as well as celebrities that included tennis champion Serena Williams, reality TV star, Malaysia Pargo and athletes Derrick Rose and Carlos Boozer.

Mieka Joi has special plans closing out the year in celebration of her five-year milestone. December will see her hosting a “pop up fashion museum” for rap star Trina in Miami as well as the release of her unicorn influenced holiday line.  Mieka is also planning to open her first stand-alone boutique in Chicago, to support her burgeoning online business.

While Rich Girl Candy’s theme channels the essence of mythical creatures like unicorns and mermaids, Mieka continues to emerge as her own mythical figure, by providing fashion seekers Rich Girl Candy in all its many delightful flavors.

Trinidad – With society continuing to place great emphasis on youthfulness, for many women, aging presents its own unique midlife crisis. Desiree Arnold understands firsthand the emotional and physical toil on women upon reaching their 40’s and beyond. A holistic practitioner, naturopath and the founder of Lifely Up, a web portal dedicated to menopausal transition, Arnold wanted to nurture women through a passage that she feels should be celebrated not vilified. She took it upon herself to consult female experts from around the world for their insight and advice and the “Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit” is the result of her efforts. A free online conference set to launch October 23rd through November 2nd the “Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit 2018” is available at www.womensmidliferevolutionsummit.com .
Shifting the perception of aging, midlife and menopausal transition from a negative outlook to an exciting journey is a rapidly emerging concept in this new day of women reclaiming their power. Older women in particular are garnering media attention for feats no longer just designated to a younger generation. The “Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit 2018” presents a wonderful opportunity for women to learn, bond and share in the privacy of their homes as Arnold interviews 22 professionals, releasing two new interviews per day over a 11-day period. Female nutritionists, doctors, herbalists, holistic therapists, authors, life coaches, entrepreneurs, hormone experts, and physical trainers have all been gathered to lend credence to the joy of seasoned womanhood.
Desiree Arnold, founder of
 “Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit”
“Living decades beyond midlife is still a newfangled phenomenon that many of us are now embracing. But for many of us, the thought of living beyond 50 for another 30, 40, or more years is shaded by fears of chronic disease, high medical bills and even living alone. Menopausal transition prepares the body, mind, and soul for that third stage in our lives where we actually can become masters of life as empresses and goddesses. The ‘Women’s Midlife Revolution Summit 2018’ presents the opportunity to take action now and learn to understand and treat ourselves in ways that favor long healthy meaningful years and decades, to which we can gracefully look forward to,” explains Arnold, who was born and grew up in Switzerland and has lived for the past 23 years on the island state of Trinidad and Tobago.
Some of the topics to be covered over the 11-day period include understanding of the physical, emotional, energetical and spiritual changes during midlife; how hormonal changes affect us; nutrition for the midlife cycle; preventing chronic disease; resurrection of the female archetype and inspiration and motivation to get moving with joy. Some of the professionals who weigh in with their wisdom include Dr. Judith Boice, ND, LAc, FABNO, naturopathic doctor, licensed acupuncturist, and Fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology; Jennifer Gibbons-Joseph, CPC, ELI-MP Managing Director of Conec Professional Life Coaching Services Ltd;
Susun Weed, author of the Wise Woman Herbal series and the voice of the Wise Woman Tradition; Meiling, the tour de force behind her premier Caribbean fashion house; Yvonne Heath, author of “Love Your Life to Death”; and Makeda Smith, veteran entertainment industry publicist and creator of the FlyingOver50 dance movement brand.

0
Los Angeles – It will be lights, camera and a lot of action as DangerMan, America’s Real Life Black Superhero, gears up to shoot the sequel to his original film release. “DangerMan Returns” will be directed by Troy Michael Rowland, a veteran entertainment specialist whose credits include Disney, Amazon and TV One. Actor, mentor and philanthropist Roger I. Tinsley, the founder of the DangerMan Urban Superhero brand and CEO/President of the DangerMan Education Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, will executive produce the film.
Well known for his adventures against crime in Los Angeles’ gritty streets, DangerMan is really Max Manley, an investment banker by day. “DangerMan Returns,” finds the urban crime fighter seeking revenge and justice after the murder of his wife and son. The roles of Max Manley and DangerMan are played by Tinsley. This is the second installment of the “DangerMan Chronicles” crime series. The first episode titled “Girls Aren’t for Sale,” debuted on YouTube four years ago.
“We are extremely excited to have Troy Rowland on board for this go around,” expresses Tinsley. “‘DangerMan Returns” is going to be

grittier as we find DangerMan experiencing heartbreak and loss on a really personal level. Rowland has been a fan and supporter of DangerMan since the beginning and we are confident about his vision to capture the spirit of this project.”
Troy Rowland began his acting career in Philadelphia, PA at the world-renowned Freedom Theater under the auspices of John E. Allen. As one of Hollywood’s premier life and acting coaches, he is currently senior vice president of the Urban Film and Television Department at Patriot Pictures, a Michael Mendelsohn company. Rowland recently worked for Amazon on Sid and Marty Kroft’s “Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.” He also directed six episodes of Disney’s “Walk the Prank” and worked on TV One’s comedy, “Here We Go Again,” starring LeToya Luckett and Wendy Raquel Robinson. Other directing projects include the Disney XD show “Kirby Buckets” as well as “The Assist” starring Los Angeles Lakers Nick Young, aka “Swaggy P” and reality star Tami Roman.
Tinsley first introduced DangerMan to America in 1998 after being emotionally impacted by the death of a four-year-old who was tragically killed on her birthday as a result gang-related gun fire. Tinsley felt compelled to create a real-life super hero who could serve as a role model for school age children in underserved communities while addressing issues that specifically affected them. Using his own money and resources he created DangerMan, the Urban Superhero.
As a ‘real life’ urban superhero, DangerMan is an advocate for children’s rights promoting literacy, safety and good health. He wages against bullying and also fights human trafficking. DangerMan visits schools and community events encouraging his audience with a motto of “No gangs, guns, drugs, alcohol or tobacco.” He has traveled throughout America and Haiti, empowering children to live their best life. “Protect, Promote and Provide” are the pillars DangerMan lives by. Tinsley credits Marvel comic book legend Stan Lee for a great portion of his inspiration and success.
DangerMan has steadily evolved into the fastest growing real-life superhero brand and is celebrating a 20-year anniversary! The Third Annual DangerMan Hero Awards Show is slated for December. In addition, DangerMan is a new rap recording artist and will be releasing his single “I’m Danger Man the Black Superman!” on iTunes and across all digital music platforms.
