Young Mom Does Not Give Up on Her Dance Passion-My Conversation with DHQ Charm

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE The first Dancehall Queen on the podcast!   Charm is an extremely talented, trophy-winning dancer and choreographer whom I've known for nearly two decades.    Charm(real name Shari)is originally from Barbados and migrated to the U.S. with her mother at the age of 3.   Mom was a ballroom dancer who would sew her own dresses for dance functions.    During kindergarten, Shari wanted to take ballet classes.   Her mother enrolled her and began Charm's dance journey.   Ballet training would continue until high school.   She also joined the school band and made it to the nationals in her senior year 2005.    At 16, she started getting into Dancehall.   Watching music videos from Sean Paul inspired her to dig into the genre.   Being raised in Brooklyn, it also helped that others in her age group were into this style.  Charm's mother started allowing her to go to parties at this time.  This leads her to meet someone who would be her dance partner and frien

Possible Cult Classic? Future Man Review Episodes 1-3

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE This week, I asked Jason to watch the first three episodes(season 1)of Future Man.   Sci-fi, action, comedy series starring Josh Hutcherson from The Hunger Games films. Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen are the producers. Jason said he's a sucker for time travel shows and was impressed with the production quality.   'These three episodes can easily be made into a movie.'   He loved the 80s homages to such films as Terminator, Back to the Future, and The Last Starfighter.   He was also happy to see Keith David, whom he's enjoyed since his role as 'Childs' in 1982's 'The Thing.'    Issues he had with the first three episodes; 'if you aren't a fan of Seth Rogen's raunchy style of comedy, this may not be for you.'   Also, this Hulu exclusive didn't take itself seriously in specific scenes, and that hurt the narrative.    Some time ago, I began watching this show.   After the first 10 minutes, I switched it off be
