SoapBox Buzz | Why Scrooge got a gun? #ChristmasinJuly

July 5, 2015

Soapbox Buzz – Something had me on my soapbox when strolling through Atlanta’s Woodruff Arts Center.  Always excited to buzz through on my way to the station when taking the tourist approach to the city.  Love being in the midst of the arts and theatre.  At first glance of holiday production Scrooge, my first thought was OMG it’s almost Christmas — Christmas in July!

Immediately after 4th of July, every heart, mind, and wallet turns to Christmas. Every other holiday in between is just a prelude.  Long story short, my next thought — why Scrooge got a gun? Further more, what the ??? is the brother holding.  It took me all but a minute to ponder — what’s wrong with this picture??

DryerBuzzonWAOK | Classic Man Carlos Coleman pays tribute to friend and fashion icon Matthew A Weaver Jr

July 5, 2015

DryerBuzzonWAOK — Blogging comes to radio weekends from Atlanta with DryerBuzz editor Yalanda P Lattimore.  Listen as Yalanda @DryerBuzz moderates a great weekend debate with double dose of buzz, Saturdays 6-8, and Sundays 1-4pm.

This week we got on our soapbox sure enough but before that, we paid tribute as the fashion world paused for the sunset of Atlanta style icon Matthew A Weaver Jr. who passed June 27, 2015.  DryerBuzz was there to capture moments from Weaver’s celebration of life services and wanted to know more about this #ClassicMan.  We reached out to Carlos Coleman, friend and mentored by Weaver.  Coleman gave us such an insight into the life and style of Weaver and what it means to be a #ClassicMan from Atlanta and beyond.

After graduating from college to become a teacher, Matthew quickly changed career paths and decided to follow his passion: fashion. He obtained his fashion niche in New York City over 20 years ago and migrated to Atlanta where he worked in a men’s store in Buckhead. Growing frustrated of the fashion market dictating what men should wear, Matthew focused his eyes toward custom wear prompting him to strike out and launch his own store called “Manstyles.”

#LivingAtlantaStyle – Friday Before July 4th

July 3, 2015

Not your ordinary TGIF. It was the Friday before 4th of July. Ended with a burger and started with buzz. Binging on what Atlanta has to offer, we kicked off the day with lunch at D’s Cafe Atlanta. Slawdogs and Social Media  was the menu for my weekly live stream. Afterwards, was time to stroll into the city for a round of radio on News and Talk 1380. Sat in for Derrick Boazman. 

Took the Atlanta Street Car and Marta versus fighting traffic and parking wars. Nice ride going and coming. Taking train into city always makes for nice stroll through Woodruff Arts Center and High Museum

To my surprise, was a bit caught off guard by the Scrooge holiday show coming attraction poster. Guessing they’ll call this year the urban or ratchet edition? Thought Scrooge was only one mad at the world. Looks like every body mad or nah?

After a buzzing radio show on symbolism, flags, culture, etc., my belly was begging for food. Pops was happy to oblige with a burger. Decide to rest up and blog eventful day before the long drive home. Get to do it all again tomorrow.

Good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise. #HairSheBuzz

Sunsets Remembered | Atlanta celebrates life of fashion friend Matthew A. Weaver, Jr | Obituary

July 1, 2015

Atlanta celebrates life of fashion friend and icon … (Obituary clipped courtesy of friend Carlos Coleman)

Matthew Weaver a Virginia native and was no stranger in the fashion industry. In fact, whenever he was out on the town, most people wondered “who was that well-dressed man.” From the modern compliments of nice outfit to the modest of just a head nod, Matthew definitely knew how to stand out from the rest with his classic sense of style, sophistication, creative flair, and solid presence of what a gentleman should look like.

After graduating from college to become a teacher, Matthew quickly changed career paths and decided to follow his passion: fashion. He obtained his fashion niche in New York City over 20 years ago and migrated to Atlanta where he worked in a men’s store in Buckhead. Growing frustrated of the fashion market dictating what men should wear, Matthew focused his eyes toward custom wear prompting him to strike out and launch his own store called “Manstyles.”

Living Atlanta Style | National Baptist Congress (NBC) will convene June 21–26, 2015 in Atlanta

June 16, 2015

Clipped from DryerBuzz email …

The 109th annual meeting of the National Baptist Congress (NBC) will convene June 21–26, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. It will be held at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel, located at 265 Peachtree Center Avenue NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. This year’s Congress is expected to register 3,000 delegates, pastors, ministers, and lay leaders. NBC is sponsored by the R.H. Boyd Publishing Corporation based in Nashville, TN, under the leadership of Dr. T. B. Boyd III, President/CEO.

The Reverend Dr. William E. Flippin, Sr., pastor of the Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church in DeKalb County, is this year’s host pastor.   Opening ceremonies of the Congress will be held at his church on Sunday, June 21st. The Reverend Micheal Benton, senior minister of the Fairfield Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia, serves as co-host pastor.

0441d90164bb4402b5376817a8600681Returning to Atlanta for the first time in 23 years, the Congress will feature a robust program of more than 50 classes and activities. These learning experiences are a part of various programs offered by NBC that include the School of Biblical Studies, School of Personal and Spiritual Growth, School of Missionary Education, School of Christian Teaching Methodology, School of Ministry, and the Youth Congress. Workshops and seminars include sessions exclusively for women seeking to improve their leadership skills, for preachers seeking to improve their sermon preparation and delivery, and for ministers interested in the areas of evangelism and church growth.

The Congress continues the tradition of inviting internationally acclaimed guests to address attendees and delegates. A full list of course offerings and featured speakers and presenters will be published in upcoming editions of The National Baptist Union Review.

“We are honored that Atlanta was chosen to host the 2015 Congress, and I am humbled to serve as this year’s host. My goal is to make this year’s event the biggest and most successful in its history,” Flippin said.

Registration information and details on hotel accommodations can be found on the Congress’ website at www.nationalbaptistcongress.org.
