Movie Trailer : Prince of Broadway, A Lee Daniels Film, September 3rd

Academy Award Nominee Lee Daniels (for Best Director for Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire), is using his new fame to advance a movie that's made the way around the festival circuit since 2008: Prince of Broadway.

This movie's gritty, realistic story style focuses on what two young men do when one of them is faced with taking care of a baby boy a woman says belongs to him.

Here's the movie trailer:

Aiden Noesi and Prince Adu
Prince of Broadway, unlike Precious, which had two name actresses in Academy Award-Winner Monique (Best Supporting Actress) and Mariah Carey, as well as Oprah and Tyler Perry to help lure audiences, has a cast of unknowns, including Prince Adu and Victoria Tate making their first film debuts.

Also making his film debut is an adorable little boy named Aiden Noesi, who plays Prince.

Here's the synopsis of Prince of Broadway from the movie's website:

Prince of Broadway is the story of Lucky and Levon, two men whose lives converge in the underbelly of New York's wholesale fashion district. Lucky, an illegal immigrant from Ghana, makes ends meet by soliciting shoppers on the street with knock-off brand merchandise. Levon, an Armenian-Lebanese immigrant, operates an illegal storefront with a concealed back room where counterfeit goods are showcased to interested shoppers. Lucky's world is suddenly turned upside down when a child is thrust into his life by a woman who insists the toddler is his son. While Lucky copes with his new domestic dilemma, Levon struggles to save a marriage that is falling apart. The seedy side of the wholesale district is revealed through a journey that continually confronts the interplay between what is fake and what is real.
Set in the shadow of the Flatiron building and soaked in the colorful bustle of Broadway, the film is as much a brutal drama as it is a tender comedy. Shot in a fast-paced guerilla style that is akin to the hustler lifestyle, the film reveals the lives of immigrants in America seeking ideals of family and love, while creating their own knock-off of the American Dream.

The movie is not directed by Lee Daniels. Sean Baker is writer, producer, director, cameraperson and editor of the film. But the power of Lee Daniels name, coupled with the quick desire to get out information about it, causes some to list Daniels as its director. He's not.

Prince of Broadway opens September 3rd at the Angelika Film Center in New York City, and September 17th at the Sunset 5, Los Angeles.

The Expendables NY cute guy says great! by Suzannah B. Troy

I am not going to see The Expendables so I asked this young man for a review!  He just loved the movie.   I have to say I just thought this young man was winning and I would like to see him up on the big screen.

Since I wasn't going to see this big action flick that has been kicking butt at the box office I really appreciated this young man taking the time to fill me it.

He thought the film, The Expendables and all the action packed stars in the film were great.  He said the only thing better would be more explosions and even longer....

This guy was terrific!

Here is our very one Zennie Abraham at the press conference interviewing the stars of The Expendable including Sly Stallone.  I had to smile at one of the questions Zennie asked.

Miriam West Chelsea Market NYPD protect Artist's 1st Amendment Rights

Today Willy and I went back to Chelsea Market.   We set up in the same spots.   One of the security guards from yesterday came up to us in the morning and asked “so what happened yesterday?” We told him we called the police but they never came and we also spoke to NYPD Peddlers Task Force and they told us to set up and if the security guards keep hassling us, to call 911.

Later, another security guard (didn’t see him yesterday) came out and told us we couldn’t set up there. I didn’t catch the beginning of the conversation, but here is what i did get.


Dear Blog Readers:  You never know how things will unfold but the NYPD was on the side of the artists and their 1st Amendment rights when it came to vending were Miriam and Willy set up their art work by Chelsea Market.

Protest Union Square...



Jayson Williams former NBA star admits drunk driving by Suzannah B. Troy

News Flash from 1010 Wins:  Jayson Williams NBA star admits he was driving drunk and crashed his car in to a tree here in NYC.

Well here is my two cents: Jayson Williams descent in to ////edness sorry for a lack of better words is disturbing....His bio reads like a twilight zone from hell.  He also is another one of these athletes less than forth coming when it comes to owning up and taking responsibility.

Williams is already in jail for the accidental shooting of a limo driver Gus Christofi and than there was the too bizarre incident which was an alleged suicide attempt where the NYPD had to taser him....not self destructive and bizarre enough so he gets drunk and hits a tree here in NYC a week before sentencing for the accidental shooting of Gus Christofi.

Something is very wrong with this elite group of athletes that earn obscene amounts of money and have luxuries that people can only dream of -- if  the even bother to dream and these guy in the most violent, thoughtless and stupid ways flush it all away leaving bullet wounds, broken marriages, crushed kids and more....

Why is that....?  Why so prevalent.   Having a great athletic ability doesn't make you above the law, accountability, etc. and it is very wrong to send a message that it does.  Why so little self respect for oneself and for others.  You can buy fancy cars but so what...what did a big fancy house and cars mean when you go to jail or break you family's heart?

Apple Mac IPhone 4 thoughts from Suzannah B. Troy

I converted to Apple at age 45 and I drank the kool-aid.  You know the early stages of sizzling love when your lover can do no wrong...well almost none...It is like that with Apple and yes I have had so many disappointments with  Apple but still crazy in love.

My senior citizen cat with severe arthritis and with just one eye feels compelled to walk on my my MacBook and leave a trail of fur so first vist Iskin.com which is what I plan to do when I get time and by a techno -skin my words for my MacBook to protect the board from fur, hair balls and me dropping pieces of chocolate all over it...  Iskin also has some cool protective covers for your Iphone 4 but I went with  big bulky ugly cover that I got at the AT&T store with a holder I can slide the cover in to that clips on to my pants.  You turn the cover to face outward to protect the glass.  When I get time I want to make a cool collage with paper, paint, color pencils and packing tape but hey that is me, Suzannah B. Troy artist....

Today I had a series of phone calls drop which was frustrating but I can't express in words how much I love Iphone 4; way better than the 3GS!    Check out more for tips for you Iphone4.
Apple Rules.  Apple is Radical.  I love Apple

Note:  I was at Apple 57th street and an Apple sales MAN treated me lower than pond scum just now and I believe it was gender bias but I still love Apple even if they have bad Apples.

Underage Drinking the perils of drinking NYC by Suzannah B. Troy

Before I tell you why I have to tell the article quotes Capt. Winski.  He and I have never actually spoke although in the short time he has taken over the command of the 1st Precinct I have written one commendation and numerous complaints against him re: vendors and The Mercer Hotel.

That being said I do praise him for this work.  Why?  Jennifer Moore -- rest in peace.  

Jennifer Moore was underage and she was brutally raped and murdered and this was easily accomplished because she had been out drinking although not legally old enough to do so at a Chelsea bar.

Imette St. Guillen also brutally raped and murdered.  She was old enough to be legally drunk but she drank to much and pay a price no human being should.

Laura Garza http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local&id=7406554  Laura Garza's remains have finally been found but no witness has come forward.  Please think back if you can and if there is any information to put her murderer or any murder behind bars speak up.

Way back when....I went to how many community board meetings in the East Village to talk over and  over  about night life concerns and too many mega dorms.  I went to the 9th Precinct's community meeting to talk about night life concerns and at the time protest both the community board chair who owned at least 10 bars in the E. Village and cronies...this is ancient history and I could not get the mayor's office, the pathetic excuse of a Manhattan Borough president Stringer to do squat, the SLA but the chair no longer is no longer a bar czar of the East Village.  Community boards are the most undemocratic part of city gov.  We did not vote for these people to represent us.  We also don't have enough good talented citizens to represent us and that includes top spots in city and state positions....meaning the people are screwed.

Back to underage drinking and drinking and drugging -- both legal and illegal drugs and a combination there of.....  Don't do it.  

NYU wants to make the entire area one big dorm and party central.   The drug dealers are thrilled.  Any young person they hook is a slave and a meal ticket but the bottom line is as much as NYC is a wonderful city it is filled with predators.

Do not drink if you are under age.   Anyone drinking more than a glass of wine or a beer.  Bring a buddy....a sober buddy to make sure you get home safe.  

Do not leave your drink unattended and make sure the drink if poured in front of you.  If you have doubts buy a bottle of beer and keep an eye on it.  Why?  I don't care if they are wearing a $5,000 business suit, a cop uniform, a fireman, a priest or rabbi - anyone could slip the date rape drug in your drink so do not leave your drink unattended.

Do not mix prescription drugs with booze -- it is too dangerous.

In my opinion stay away from Ambien (perscription sleeping pill)  or any aggressive male taking ambien --- ambien could make someone abusing the substance even more aggressive.  I do not think anyone popping ambien should be allowed to carry a gun.

Do make sure you get a safe ride home and one good option is to call Right Rides...

Be alert out there.   There are predators just hoping you will get drunk to rob you or worse...

NBC a big liar? by Suzannah B. Troy

Queens Crap has a new post"  "Why is the media silent on challangers?" which shows the "Throw the Bums Out" YouTube  for  Doug Biviano who is challenging Joan Millman for NY State Assembly in Brooklyn's 52nd District but  can't get the press to cover his campaign challenge.  

In Mike Moore  like fashion Doug goes to the media reception desks  of the media here in NYC and asks to speak to the press.  Only NBC, and NBC claims it is their security guard and not them that is demanding the YouTube come down.  Read why this in my opinion stinks like a dead rat...

The YouTube that is set to come down in 24 hours because NBC is in my opinion a) proving the entire point of this YouTube which I believe is also by not covering opposing voices the media helps perpetuate cronyism and it is also a form of passive censorship allowing business as usual although often we hear "throw the bums up" we can't if the media won't cover opposition.

b) NBC wants us to believe that the security guard -- okay you see the word "security" either never saw the video camera that in Michael Moore fashion was plain to see and following Doug Biviano around -- and the camera man is a large fellow or perhaps the security guard had no problem until ready for this a mysterious friend alerted the security guard his face was on the video for 7 seconds and he perhaps the security guard should contact YouTube to have the video removed.

Question:  Is this friend of the security guard at NBC employed at NBC in perhaps a more senior position than the security guard?

NBC has the most pathetic local news channel ever to be seen in NYC's history.  Why do I say that?  Because NBC's local tv news show at 5:00PM resembles Entertainment tonight and not a news program.
Perhaps that is one example of why it is hard to throw the bums out because media giants like NBC want folks to watch entertainment light news rather than the serious issues that impact our daily lives like why we are living in a recession that more and more is resembling a depression unless you are rich.

In my opinion NBC has proven the very point of the YouTube expressed in the Michael Moore like video about the media's attempt to silence challangers.   In my opinion no wonder NBC has a local news  program at 5PM that does not report the news.

NBC how low can you go?   Can we have the name of the security guard's friend please?

I  made this comment on Queens Crap in response to a commentor because he points out Alexander Hamilton was Zenger's lawyer.  To me there is even a greater irony here that The New York Post is not covering challengers and the creator of The New York Post -- is the super star lawyer that takes on the British Governor and wins his case freeing Zenger from jail for saying the governor's administration is corrupt.

Well at least The New York Post did not stoop to the petty level that media giant NBC
My comment on Queens Crap:
First of all "GeorgetheAtheist" I love you.

After reading your posting I read this...thanks and hugs.  Great way to start the morning.
Bravo to Queens Crap for posting this and rewind thanks to all of you that wrote YouTube Google when all my work was removed from YouTube before the election....Thanks and gratitude!
My tube when the story first broke...

NBC how low can you go?   Can we give a media giant a lie detector test?
