I had this look on my face when I was watching this music video, by Skilf, we are currently playing his London track from his mixtape Alter Ego on THE JUNCTION. As a film grad, I have a soft spot for old cinema, I really enjoyed these clips from the Detonate (another track from the Alter Ego mixtape) music video. Skilf gets an A+ for originality!

The British actress, Archie Panjabi, won an emmy for “Outstanding Supporting Actress” in the CBS series “The Good Wife.” She plays a private investigator Kalinda Sharma on the hit series. She’s no stranger to spy roles, in 2009, she portrayed an MI5 agent in a french movie Espions. A linger question regarding Archie’s character Kalinda Sharma… is she bisexual? My gaydar has gone off, you can’t help notice her intense flirting tactics around women. Panjabi just smiled at the question and said she won’t say anything, we will just have to see! As I look at this picture of Archie holding the Emmy, I have a feeling we will be seeing her win more awards in the years to come!

Sensazn Magazine calls it quits!

When I lived in Hayes, UK… I loved going to one of shops in Southall and picking up Sensazn Magazine… just the name itself was so catchy…I loved the articles and even wanted to write for them at one point. It’s sad to see that after a couple of years, they decided to close shop. Not even maintaining their online website… media of all types are really feeling the lack of businesses willing to advertise. No advertisement = no money = no magazine. Sad but true.

here’s the letter from the editor…

Thank you for all your love and support over the past few years…we really do appreciate it! Due to the relevant slow down in the advertising markets, we’ve decided not to take Sensazn any further, both in print and online.

It’s been a very eventful and exciting time since 2008, and I personally want to thank each and every supporter, reader, and everyone that provided us with the words of kindness and encouragement to keep us going, in particular  I’d would like to thank each and every member of the Sensazn team, who put in the time, effort, sweat and blood to make and create the great content that we did.

Anyone who spared a second of their time for us. You all know who you are, and every second dedicated has been appreciated more than you think.

We made a positive impact in the music scene, and then later in other areas, but as with all good things – one day it must come to an end.

Thank you.
