Don Cornelius And His ‘Soul Train’ Are Heading To Broadway As A Musical:

In 2012, it was announced that there was renewed interest in exploiting the Soul Train franchise - likely thanks in some part, at the time, to Don Cornelius’ death (February 1, 2012)…
After a year-and-a-half of silence, today brings news that Matthew Weaver (producer of Rock of Ages) has now acquired theatrical rights to the long-running Soul Train franchise… with plans to develop into a Broadway musical. 
"Don Cornelius created a television show that became a cornerstone in American culture and I am excited and honored to be bringing it to the stage," said Weaver. "We are putting together a top-notch team of artists to ensure Soul Train is the hippest trip on Broadway." 
"Soul Train has made a significant impact on American music and pop culture and its legacy and appeal continue to resonate around the world," added Johnson. "Creating a live theatrical interpretation of this iconic franchise is an opportunity that could not be missed.” 
No word on what Broadway season the project is aimed to debut.

Intimacy builds worlds; it creates spaces and usurps places meant for other kinds of relation. Its potential failure to stabilize closeness always haunts its persistent activity, making the very attachments deemed to buttress ‘a life’ seem in a state of constant if latent vulnerability. Even from this small cluster of examples and scenes it becomes clear that virtually no one knows how to do intimacy; that everyone feels expert about it (at least about other people’s disasters); and that mass fascination with the aggression, incoherence, vulnerability, and ambivalence at the scene of desire somehow escalates the demand for the traditional promise of intimate happiness to be fulfilled in everyone’s everyday life.
Lauren Berlant, “Intimacy: A Special Issue” (1998)

County attorney says he will prosecute Shanesha Taylor for felonies

[For more on social justice, follow me on Instagram: soulrevision]

Despite public outcry, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Wednesday he will move forward with the felony child abuse prosecution of Shanesha Taylor, the jobless mom whose Scottsdale arrest has drawn national attention and prompted calls for Taylor to receive assistance rather than punishment. 

Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office received a petition on Tuesday with 12,000 signatures asking for Shanesha’s charges to be dropped. "First, they weren’t signatures; they were just a list of names," Montgomery said, referring to a printout from the website. "So I don’t know whether any of the individuals in their pajamas who logged on to the site and put their name on there really had a clue of all the circumstances involved in this particular case.

Apparently signatures aren’t good enough, let’s call County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office & tell him to drop the charges against Shanesha Taylor —-> (602) 506-3411
