GaptoothDiva Radio – Interview w/ Creators of Urban Adult Cartoon – Bullyvard, Carlton “Piper” Marshall & David “Devine” Plummer Ft. Special Guest Official Freeze of Charged Up Entertainment Tonight 1/27 at 9pm

As demonstrated by the success of Adult Swim; the adult-oriented cable television network that shares channel space with Cartoon Network, cartoons are not just for kids.. And childhood friends Carlton “Piper” Marshall and David “Divine” Plummer have created ”

Bullyvard” an animated adult urban series to join in the fun. Utilizing their love of urban culture and hip hop music, these two childhood friends have gone beyond being rappers or producers to solidify a unique place in the hip hop culture. They have gone miles beyond and entered a world not populated by young African American‘s…animation and cartoons.

Marshall and Plummer born in Brooklyn, but grew up in Queens, NY, are the creative partners producing the adult animated series “Bullyvard” based on their lives and the neighborhood characters and happenings of their Linden Boulevard neighborhood. The idea for Bullyvard came to Marshall while working in a barbershop where in addition to cutting and styling hair, laughter and telling jokes was the order of the day. Every customer had a story and each one was as absurd as the one before it. Marshall decided to create characters and story lines but in an animated format that would allow him to also infuse his own dialogue and music that he and Divine produced.

Bullyvard is the home of eighteen characters that run amok displaying the everyday but exaggerated life in the neighborhood. Vividly and colorfully drawn as adolescents to remind you of being one yourself the characters each have distinct personalities and several cultural and ethnic identities including West Indian, Latino, Asian, East Indian and other dialects that represent the melting pot and realness of an urban neighborhood. Bringing the sound and audio flavor to the series is sound designer/engineer Kevin Perrin and actors Ashonda Ace Warner, Ricardo Mccook, Cheron Hogan, Andrew Danish, Mike Haynes and Oren Whitfield.

Bullyvard is not your typical Saturday morning cartoon. Taking its cue from urban and hip hop cultures, it is developed by adults and solely for adults with the added twist of creating youthful looking characters designed to remind you of your own childhood memories. A combination of hot original tracks and funny skits about everyday life, Bullyvard is not intended to be a political commentary or to shock or offend anyone but to help us remember the antics and fun we had as children now that we are adults.

GaptoothDiva Radio had the opportunity to broadcast LIVE from the Martin Luther King Signature Black & White Affair at Posh nightclub (1713 E. Main Street) this past weekend. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to hear it due to a very large speaker distorting our transmission half way through our broadcast, but we had a great time none the less. Many people came in looking great and ready to party for a purpose. I did have a chance to talk with NatashaB1980.com owner, Brandy Bacote before all of the spectacular confusion, who mentioned that most of her clientele were in the building, of course rocking her signature pieces. The event’s proceeds were collected to benefit High IQ3 Foundation, a youth mentoring program in Richmond, Virginia.

GaptoothDiva Radio – How Mentoring and Motivation Moves Young Black Men From Prison to Purposeful Lives. Interview w/ The Authors of Brother to Brother: Motivation for Young African-American Men Tonight 1/11 @ 9pm

Whether or not you believe that there are more black men in prison than in college, depends on who is doing the counting. The truth is, regardless of the amount of men in jail vs. an institution of higher learning, the country could definitely use more mentors who are willing to dedicate their time to change. Often times we are so preoccupied by our busy schedules and our own ambitions that we fail to realize how many young people out there who are lost, socially, mentally and emotionally. How do we take steps to promote positive ambitions and assist in guiding our future generations to purposeful living. GaptoothDiva speaks to the Authors of Brother to Brother: Motivation for Young African- American Men, to learn how they plan to create change and make a difference in their community and beyond.

Brother to Brother: Motivation for Young African- American Men, in conjunction with Xlibris Publishing, is pleased to announce the release of their new and highly-anticipated book. Authored by Lloyd Young, Jr. and his three sons, Lloyd A. Young, Keon Young and Sean Young, Brother to Brother: Motivation for Young African-American Men is the family’s first major release that is already garnering top-tier support. The unique partnership is quickly setting a new standard for inspirational and motivational products geared toward ethnic communities that have been traditionally underrepresented.

About the Authors:
Lloyd Young, Jr. has extensive experience in developing, coordinating, and managing behavioral health and criminal justice intervention strategies. He coordinated an offender drug treatment summit for L. Douglas Wilder (1992) and a crime forum for George Allen (1996), both former governors of the Commonwealth of Virginia. In 2003, Mr. Young coordinated a regional DUI summit on behalf of State Senators Ken Stolle (Virginia Beach) and Nick Rerras (Norfolk). Lloyd Young developed and implemented a funding strategy for the Indian Creek Correctional Center substance abuse treatment program. This one-thousand-bed correctional facility, solely dedicated for offender substance abuse treatment, is the largest of its kind in the United States of America. Mr. Young administered a regional Alcohol Safety Action Program (A.S.A.P.), which provides probation and substance abuse intervention services for individuals arrested and/or convicted of alcohol and drug-related offenses. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts. Mr. Young acquired a master’s of science degree in Management from Lesley College.

Currently serving as president of Young Minds Youth and Family Development, Lloyd A. Young has been instrumental in helping his organization build national relationships.

Sean T. Young has been called to bring motivation to African-American men and boys to live up to their God-given potential.
