Well MMT Family, this is the last post of 2013. Can you believe how fast this year went? And what a great year it has been! I was able to share some really great interviews, including Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, The Sapphires director Wayne Blair, The Purge producer Jason Blum, The Best Man Holiday writer/director Malcolm D. Lee, and interviews with Lee Daniels’ The Butler cast Yaya Alafia, Cuba Gooding Jr. and director Lee Daniels himself. I also met several of my faves and “mentors in my head” including Cathy Hughes, Smokey Robinson, and Berry Gordy.
And don’t even get me started with the cool Twitter mentions and thanks received from major films/companies, independents and several of my industry faves, including Debra Lee, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Anika Noni Rose, Omari Hardwick, Lisa Lisa, and Will Downing! In addition, I’ve received feature promotion on Examiner.com for several of my stories, which helped to introduce MusicMoviesThoughts to a whole new audience. It has indeed been a great year, to say the least! 😉
I am so very thankful for all of the support, comments, and thank-you emails sent to me for the giveaways, promo items and screening passes received. It is my absolute pleasure to share my passion with you and I look forward to sharing even greater things in 2014. And lastly, but certainly not least, thanks so much to Michael Tozzi of ijazzglobal.com and Monica Lyons of Sista Pics for their wonderful contributions and support.
Well that’s it for me family! Until 2014, Thomasena 🙂
