I am working on opening a used bookstore in Sunset Park, Brooklyn

The area needs a bookstore, & I have some great bookstore ideas that might work in Sunset Park, so I am working on a bookstore project over here.  Check out more below and support the project if you can.  When the place is up and running I plan on hosting indie film screenings there.

Found a new, real bookstore in NYC area - B & F Books in West New York, NJ

Here are some photos from my latest NYC area bookstore discovery (a couple of mins away from Manhattan - driving/by bus, etc) - B&F Books in West New York, NY - at 6-60th St.  Here's the store on Facebook.  And here's their website w/ link to their massive Amazon collection (for those who like to shop at Amazon).  You can call them at the store at 201-663-1751 about Special Events, sales, visiting the store/store hours, to sell your books, etc.

 The Store
The Owner - Lawrence Arteaga (who is brave for attempting to run a real life/physical bookstore, though many are closing around the country due to the popularity of internet book selling) 
The Neighborhood - Beautiful!  Saw some amazing visuals that I need to work into my next movie :)  Great sights of NYC from West New York, NJ.  This photo was taken a few feet away from the bookstore.
 Seen inside the store :)
Lots of books!
My find of the day!  The store was selling some great books for $1 - $5 when I was there on Mon night.
 The store is getting some local press! :)
They buy books.  Take your books that you want to sell or give away to them.  Call 201-663-1751

In the works - Mother's Day (2016)

I heard about a new film called Mother's Day recently.  Film is being completed and should be released in 2016.  Here's the IMDb page for the film.

And here are several articles about the film:

 From the Cinema Blend article on the film (from 2012):

"Mother's Day is described as a drama, and seems to bear no relation to other recent "Day" movies (Valentine's Day, New Years Day), with Duddridge's past credits appearing to be focused mainly on television. But it looks like the movie is already having some success bringing in notable names. Sarandon's recent work has her playing Joy in Showtime's underrated drama series The Big C, and she has a number of movies in the works, including the feature adaptation of Cloud Atlas. Meanwhile, Ricci's recent roles include Pan Am and Bel Ami, and she's also set to lend her voice to the Smurfs sequel. It'll be interesting to see who else joins Mother's Day."

About Warhol's Screen Tests

Interesting - "Warhol’s filmmaking was motivated in large part by his fascination with individuals, but he was also driven by his desire to capture the actual experience of living. As he wrote in his book, POPism: The Warhol ‘60s: “What I liked was chunks of time all together, every real moment…I only wanted to find great people and let them be themselves…and I’d film them for a certain length of time and that would be the movie.”"  Read the rest here.

America is not yet an equal society

Race was an idea developed and used in America to support slavery.  Post-slavery race and other ideas, and practices and institutions that supported slavery, were not fully dismantled.  Instead those things changed names and went underground a couple of levels, and continued to operate in American society.  This is why that now, in 2015, we have two levels of wealth, freedom, and justice in America (as made clear by the many cases of unjust violence against African-Americans by the police, the wealth disparity between Whites and Blacks, the massive Black prison population due to harsher sentencing for Blacks).  There exists in America now one level of opportunities, wealth, freedom for Whites and a lesser one for Blacks. Obviously this is not a good idea - given the fact that it is a source of harm and pain for millions of people in America and a source of unrest which interferes with the quality of life and peace for all.  Also, the continued existence of the idea of races, the belief in that idea (or people taking the idea of separate races of humans seriously, along with the segregation, economic impacts, violence that goes with that social & political caste system of an idea) is used world wide to justify the lingering effects of colonialism.  So, most likely America needs a second Civil Rights Movement.  To try to finally fully achieve the goals of the first civil rights movement of the 1960s, including: a truly equal society, one with one standard of justice for all, and opportunity for all, and one without horrible levels of poverty and race and racism based violence.

As I've said for many years now, race is mostly just a political control idea.  No one needs to take it seriously anymore and no one needs to organize their societies using the concept of races.  Race was used for colonialism world wide and slavery in America - both things caused horrible suffering for hundreds of millions of people.  It's time to let that evil idea go, deal with the lingering effects of slavery and colonialism, and build a better tomorrow.
