In case you haven't yet seen the brand new December/January issue of the restyled and revamped RADAR magazine, get your copy now. Maer Roshan and his editorial crew names myself and Rod 2.0 as one of "The New Radicals"—"a group of entertainers and writers who are shaping up culture in the right way."
"The Bloggeratti" are recognized as "the bomb-lobbing vanguard of the new black blogosphere." Left to right, Jam Donaldson, (hotghettomess.com), Rod McCullom (rod20.com), Eskay (nahright.com), Angel Laws (concreteloop.com). Eagle-eyed New York City residents may recognize the old skool phone booth at 66th and West End as one of the last four remaining such working phone booths in the city, and, we pretty much took it over for an afternoon.
It was fabulous for RADAR to recognize black bloggers, who are often overlooked in the larger cultural zeitgeist. "The New Radicals" include fierce company: Kathy Griffin, director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), actress and gender bender Candis Cayne (
30 Rock Dirty Sexy Money), Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato and the kids at World of Wonder (The Eyes of Tammy Faye,Party Monster) and others. There is a December event at the brand new New Museum. More pictures later, and, more projects with RADAR going forward.
