Dieselfunk Year End Review 2017

Dieselfunk Year End Review 2017

Greetings Dieselfunkateeers!  2017 has been a BANNER YEAR.  While the two prior years were all about being visible, this year continued that trend buttressed with a lot of behind the scene work.  We began the year capturing footage for The Dieselfunk Show at The Women’s March and Inauguration of Donald Trump.  Diametrically opposed activities I assure you.

Then we would go into a bout of travel.  We quickly moved into working with Professor Reynaldo Anderson’s BSAM at Texas’ Prairie View University COMM Week sponsored by the wonderful Professor Toniesha Taylor.  We joined BSAM again at Harris Stowe University in St. Louis.  We would close out the first half of the year at The Electrik Revival at Harvard University’s Hutchins Center.  The Motherbox/Black Kirby Crew was in full effect.

The Dieselfunk Show, featuring our Glogging technique , would premiere on Youtube!  High John Conqueror, the Comatic, would closely follow.

Summer hit, and it was off to the races.  The Dieselfunk Show Road tour begin in Jackson Mississippi, moving to New Orleans, then to Los Angeles, then up to Seattle, Tacoma, down to Portland, then to San Francisco.  We made a quick dash back down to San Diego for SDCC, then back to Los Angeles.  Our travels had us interviewing folks such as Ben Caldwell, our sponsor Isaiah Coberly of New Pencil, maker of the FLIPSTEADY, and the kind souls at Wacom Technologies.

During that entire period, time was found to work with the writer Brandon Easton on a short story for George Takei’s NEW FRONTIERS, whom we also had the chance to Glogg as well.  We would end the summer at Blerd City and Afropunk in NYC.

The fall was spent focusing on the completion of ‘Matty’s Rocket: Book One’ which came out in November.  It’s 120 pages of hard work, pure heart, and focused joy.  Writers, Junot Díaz, Valerie Boyd, Comic Gods John Jennings, Joyce Brabner, and Dawud Anyabwile and more graced us with contributions to the book.   This was all made possible by the setup of our own in-house PRINT ON DEMAND operation.  

Here is wishing you all the Happiest of Holidays and the brightest of New Years.

If you think 2017 was nuts, just wait till 2018!

DNC Done!

DNC Done!

DNC DONE!

 

It’s been an absolutely wild ride the last two weeks. Yesterday brought to an end the road journey around the chaos that is the intra-party pageantry of the American political system.   The Democratic National Convention was every bit as insane as a Bond movie. Who would have thought that my joke about there being Russians would actually come true:-)

The truly great experience was working with my twin brother Jim Fielder, on our new venture ’The Dieselfunk GLOG and SHOW. Expect more on that as we go along. Thanks to Joyce Brabner, founder of Comixcast, my Comixcast mates, and of course The Illustrious One’s, THE OUTHOUSERS, for letting me do my thang. Also, I want to acknowledge Black Enterprise Magazine’s , Derek Dingle, Maryann Reid, Hailey Wallace, and Sharon Wynne.  

Finally, none of this would have been known about without the continued tweeting, retweeting of the numerous bloggers out there.  All of theblerdgurls, afronerds, blacktribbles, blackgril nerds, yams and whathave you represent the end of the media world as we know it.  

Very quick note on GLOGGING.  IT’S FUN  

 

 

We’ll be Glogging with Joe Thomas of Atomic Comics, Ariell Johnson of Amalgam Comics, and the MAN, Danny Simmons of Rush Galleries.  Philly does indeedydo ROCK
