Hello everyone!

It’s thefakesamjoseph here and I’ve come with the official 72nd annual Golden Globes Winner’s list!

Alas, it was a great (and not so great) night of designer gowns, unexpected celebrity sightings (that is unless J.Lo was actually supposed to be at the Globes), and, of course, hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler giving us all quite a few laugh out loud moments.

From the Desk of Beyoncé

Hey Everyone! It is I, thefakesamjoseph. As you all may or may not know, my first post here on Black Chick Media saw me recapping the very successful career of the one and only Beyoncé.

For my second post, I bring you incredible news. Recently there have been rumors that Beyoncé would be releasing a new album due to a very convincing photo of a memo that was leaked, detailing the track list of a supposed re-release of Beyoncé’s self titled, critically acclaimed, multi-platinum fifth album, with new songs and collaborations with artists such as Nicki Minaj, Justin Timberlake and Rihanna. However, this turned out to be only partially true.

Earlier this morning, the Queen’s representatives addressed these rumors by announcing the release of the Beyoncé Platinum Edition Box Set. A re-release of the calibur only Beyoncé could pull off, the box set includes a two CD and two DVD set comprised of the original release of Beyoncé and it’s accompanying video album, in addition to a live performance DVD from her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and a disc with brand new songs and remixes.

This new collection of songs (simply and appropriately titled More) features remixes with Kanye West, Pharrell, Mr. Vegas, and Nicki Minaj (who featured on the recently released remix of fan favorite Flawless) and two new songs titled “7/11” and “Ring Off”. The box set is due to be released on November 24, in perfect time for Christmas. Leave it to Bey to always end the year on a high note.

And So It Goes…So and So On…

1966198_638023779650038_7358755985555218594_oOur dear friends with the So and So Arts Club, together with Roma Fringe, are putting on a brilliant theatre festival in just a few days. See below for the official press release.


International theatre festival comes to the heart of the City.

November 3-9th 2014 A pop up venue in the heart of the historic City of London, will host 14 shows from five different countries for a week-long international theatre festival of one act plays.

The So and So On Festival, in association with Italy’s Roma Fringe, will showcase some of the best new writing and performances from Britain, with guest performers from Canada, Italy, Australia and the USA.

Shows include an award-winning monologue from a confused Canadian lesbian, a hallucinatory dystopia based on Kafka’s “The Trial”, the story of a transsexual dad from Arkansas, and from Italy, an absurd and poetic re-imagining of Frederico Fellini’s classic film, La Strada.

Producer Sarah Berger says, “The idea behind the festival is to bring new theatrical experiences from across the world to the diverse London audience…which has always been an amazing melting pot. The festival has also tried hard to get so many artists from so far afield into one basement because that’s how great future collaborations come about. And the great thing about a festival of one-act plays is that it proves you can have an amazing experience in under an hour.”

The Festival will run at 6 Frederick’s Place, City of London, London, UK  EC2R 8AB from November 3rd – 9th 2015. Tickets are available here or from the box office at 0207 923 9518.

The So and So Arts club, established by Sarah Berger in 2012, helps artists of all ages from across every discipline by encouraging them to network and collaborate. To date, the club has 1200 members in nine different countries, and has produced three festivals and eight productions.

The fourteen shows on offer are:

Pussy by Claire Rice

Shurl: A delightful one-woman show nominated for the outstanding performance award at the Prague fringe festival. Written and performed by Sue Schilperoot.

The Orpheus Project: A new piece of writing by Jonathan Young and David Hermann, inspired by both the mythology of Orpheus and Kafka’s ‘The Trial’. Using original soundscapes, music, movement and multimedia, Nomanstime Automatics creates a dystopian future described by Public reviews as “a frightening, fragmentary experience for its residents and an exceptionally engaging piece of theatre for its audience”.

Stand By Your Man written and performed by Jenni Douglas.
Evil is real, evil walks this Earth like a natural man. And he’s found love. With songs and original music Jenni tells the story of four women who fell in love with serial killers.

Dare devised and performed by Claudia Errico with the collaboration of visual performer Riccardo Attanasio Matlakas. Told with a physical and sensual journey through improvised happenings, ecstatic dances and Visual Art; Dare inspires us to share that repressed feeling, and journey beyond boundaries to live a life made of Individual choices.

The White Room

The White Room

THE WHITE ROOM by Caterina Gramaglia The performance brings on stage interaction of live acts and multi-media material – videos, pictures, words, songs of these characters are played by the only artist on stage – an interaction between the absurd and poetic making the way to Fellini’s world La Strada powerfully incarnated by his muse and lead actress Giulietta Masina as the powerful Gelsomina. Winner of the Roma Fringe festival.

Each show has three performances across the week.
