Poem by Jhantu Randall

City Scenes Welcome to the city’s scenes Listen closely, its as if you can hear the city’s heartbeat The people running around like cells moving in vessels Blockages arise from a crash on the trestle The skyscrapers’ define the heights where people envision themselves to be The buildings themselves create a crisp breeze that gathers together then takes aim at the city streets The pavement is scarred by studded tires that gives it years of abuse New developments start to come through and replacing the old Gentrification! Driving up property values as they tear down pieces of stone This place runs on commerce Movers and Shakers Takers and Money Makers Customers and Hustlers’ They’re all pieces playing a part in this continuous game Like the man at the corner store turning copper and silver into exact change Recording every transaction, as he knows, nothing stays the same This is a place where walking nightmares intertwine with heavenly dreams Darker stories to be told unfold behind tortured voices and heavy screams The words of those chained away behind walls and held in captivity Forced to relive the choices that drove the desire to quickly acquire expensive things In this moment, alive with nothing but envisioning the other possibilities Outside the cell “windows” holding those who pine to be free Holds another scene of homeless encampments made up of dilapidated tents Duality of views that you can see late at night sitting in brightly lit parks that protect the broken down bench Welcome to the city’s scenes Listen closely, its as if you can hear the city’s heartbeat

relatable movies, but this is changing and the new talent we are experiencing is incredible and refreshing to watch and also to be a part of.�


SAMANTHA GOLDBERG

CELEBRITY HOST TALKS FASHION, WEDDINGS, REALITY TV, & MORE IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW W/ MISTAH WILSON Mistah Wilson: Personally, I'm no stranger to interviewing artists. From one host to another, what are some techniques you use to help bring out the most in your guests? Samantha Goldberg: Well then you know to make your guests laugh and smile by covering the expected but sharing the unexpected too Artists get tired of the same questions so to challenge them with what life is like for them outside the lights and cameras- you see their heart and soul and that is how you begin a GREAT interview. I meet my friends this way at times as you learn commonalities and it's comforting to know ones experiences might be similar to those across from you...Maybe in some ways you learn later as I have, you helped them get through a really bad time in their life by one interview which made them smile and laugh in ways they haven't in a while! I use laughter and distractions during my interviews it works best with those you don't really know but want to bring out their light side...Distractions meaning activities making them partake in the not so norm activities? Mistah Wilson: You have

R E A D

much experience in (reality) television. What are some of your favorite projects you've worked on thus far? Samantha Goldberg: I loved working on The E!/ Style Network and Whose Wedding Is It Anyway Married Away- Hitched or Ditched on Warner Bros WE's Platinum Weddings, Kathy Griffins My Life On The D List, Cake Boss, Mistah Wilson: Ok, this question is for me and I'd like your personal opinion. Who's the bigger icon: Denzel Washington vs. Will Smith? Samantha Goldberg: OOOO- I would have to say Denzel Washington he has played some extremely diverse roles- I think that shows pure raw talent in addition to his down to earth demeanor...Will Smith would be a close second He's comical and can rock the drama too! Mistah Wilson: From where you stand, what is your perspective on the entertainment & fashion industry? For example, do you notice any unique trends or perhaps what could improve? Samantha Goldberg: I feel the entertainment and fashion industry is forever changing. There are times

F U L L

where I wonder what benefit for those who maybe cannot afford a trend...I am happy to experience we are celebrating all shapes and sizes. Many designers are becoming more open to affordable brands and images for all to enjoy. I never thought certain designers would get there, but am happy our generation gets to experience this first hand. I think the one area which concerns me is some of the reality shows or soap series which shows us an outrageous and not so typical way to live. Most of America can not live in this fashion yet the visibility of the shows remain strong. I know I might get squashed for that comment, but it's my own opinion. For what seemed like a long time I felt the silver screen industry did not have enough realistic or relatable movies, but this is changing and the new talent we are experiencing is incredible and refreshing to watch and also to be a part of. I think it's wonderful to show how other people live/work however, we must not forget to remember the median of those whom should be able to experience similar things without having to come with deep pockets! Today we live in the #metoo era this includes lifestyles as well!
