Be the Change

So often, we complain about the quality of entertainment being provided to us by the various industries and express concern about the messages that we and our children are receiving. Apparently literacy is down, ignorance is thriving, and despite all of our access to information, as a society, we're just as dumb and uncultured as ever. Well let me humbly suggest that in the New Year we do less talking and take more action. Be the change, so to speak. You want better quality entertainment?... Then demand better entertainment. Read more books. Support art. The more you do it, the more there will be.

My friend Simply Kat, an LA area poet and visual artist is raising money to put out her first book. It's been a long time coming. She's phenomenal and a strong, necessary female voice. We need more of that. You can start demanding more artistry by supporting a true artist. Donate to fund her project here. She has some great incentives to make it extra worth while.
