One of the things I like to do with this Lifestyle Blogsite is to constantly keep you in the know about things to do and see around the city. When I learned the lineup about the upcoming Ozy Fest I opted to share that along with a little bit about the event. Since this information was new to me, I took it right from their website.
About OZY Fest: OZY Fest was born out of our deep belief that broad curiosity — about people, ideas, and culture — fuels meaningful and rewarding lives. Featuring two full days of live music, interactive art, cooking demos, and stimulating conversation with leaders across disciplines and political leanings, OZY Fest offers a rare opportunity to engage with forward-thinking artists, business leaders, presidential candidates, writers, teachers, students and more — all while chowing down on great food in the sunshine of New York’s Central Park Continue reading The OZY Fest Lineup and Dates→

The Press Release:
Blerd City Con 3.0, a micro-cosmic explosion, is coming to Brooklyn, NY July 12 – 14, 2019, and delves into the multidimensional nerd sphere bringing together community and amplifying the global intellect. Two days of the conference will take place at St. Francis College (180 Remsen St., BK Heights) with the third day at additional locations in Brooklyn (to be announced).
Black Horror is this year’s theme, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring forth everything “weird and strange” the community has to offer. Yet, we also want to address the personal horrors the Diasporic community may experience daily; whether that is feeling invisible, mental challenges, nutrition and having an overall wholistic approach to life…our goal is to bring compassion, understanding and knowledge as a take away for participants. “The ‘nerd’ has always been considered awkward, eccentric and whichever other adjective you can come up with to describe the community. With this conference, we want to provide a safe space for people of color where one can be – and – celebrate as themselves,” expressed Clairesa Clay, founder.

Back in March, I shared the first official trailer for the upcoming film “Dora and the Lost City of Gold” which features the adventures of the famous character Dora The Explorer. If you feel like seeing that trailer post again just click HERE to see it. Now those younger family members have a brand new trailer to enjoy and it was just released a short time ago. The timeless nature of this character will surely have the parents in our readership lining up nice and early to bring their little ones to the film. Check out the New Official Trailer down below along with the premise, casting and some other visuals.
Synopsis: Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents nothing could prepare Dora for the most dangerous adventure ever – high school. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego, and a rag tag group of teens on an adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost Inca civilization.
