With plans to add more content on the Fresh is the Word web site outside of just podcasts, here’s our first music premiere – the new single “Chroma Love” from Bird Call, the musical project from Chiara Angelicola.
Troy-Jeffrey Allen, who is a comic book writer and a member of the Consumer Marketing department for Diamond Comics Distributors. You might have seen him in the PREVIEWSworld Weekly videos on YouTube, along with being a contributing writer for a variety of online publications, a co-creator over at Rexco Comics, and he is also in charge of marketing for Urban Action Showcase.
Joe Corallo, comic book writer and editor. Corallo co-created and wrote the comic book She Said Destroy along with comic artist Liana Kangas, which ended it’s five-issue run via Vault Comics last week. Corallo also organized/co-edited the Eisner nominated/Ringo winning Mine!, editing the GLAAD nominated Oh S#!t It’s Kim & Kim, and co-edited Dead Beats via A Wave Blue World.
The Dallas-based synthwave duo of Krisluv and Danni James known as PRIZM! They released their self-titled debut EP earlier in 2019 where it would soon catch some buzz around the synthwave world and later lead to their signing with the independent synthwave label FiXT Neon.
Bodie is a troll trying to be scary but he’s too damn adorable! The stories are funny and interesting, and ultimately about having self-love and appreciation for those who genuinely care about you. Jay’s artwork is so amazing and visually unique that is brings out the joys, the sadness, and even the grumpiness of Bodie and his wild collection of friends and enemies. In the end, as much as he doesn’t act like it, Bodie is a great protector of his friends and possesses strengths he didn’t even know he had. Bodie Troll is a great comic for all ages! I wish this was an animated series also because it would be even more hilarious!
Kiana June Weber, a classically trained, Celtic fiddler born and raised in Chelsea, Michigan and attended the University of Michigan where she studied violin with Stephen Shipps. She previously performed with the violin-based ensemble Barrage and the Celtic band Gaelic Storm. Currently, Kiana June Weber plays the fiddle on the touring company of the Broadway musical Come From Away.
Josh Smith, guitarist for Australian metalcore band Northlane, who recently released their new album Alien via UNFD Central. The interview was recorded at Saint Andrews Hall in Detroit during the North American leg of their Alien World Tour with Erra, Currents, and Crystal Lake.
Joe Zanetti, who is making his feature film directorial debut with the movie KILLBIRD, which is a conspiracy thriller with a bit of a political twist to it that will have you question who are the good guys and who are the enemy, and how much privacy do you really have, and what lengths are government will go to keep their status quo. KILLBIRD tackles very timely subjects as such without kid gloves.
Recently, I picked up both Wild Bullets and Wild Bullets: Christmas written by Greg Wright at the Michigan Comic Convention at Cobo Hall in Detroit. Both these books are extremely funny with this dysfunctional Bullet family.
Anastasia Lin, subject of a new documentary called Badass Beauty Queen: The Story of Anastasia Lin. Anastasia Lin is an award-winning actress, former Miss World Canada and human rights activist, and has appeared in over 20 films and television productions.
