A Love Initiative - Day 73 “Strong” What’s in a roar? On a good day, the roar of a male lion can be heard at a distance of 5 miles. A male gorilla pounds its chest and bellows a roar that equals that of the lion. Tigers, bears, elephants even alligators roar. In the animal kingdom the roar is used as a form of communication. It establishes authority, domain, courtship and when necessary, aggression. Simply put, its a display of strength and power. Paul Robeson, William Warfield, James Earl Jones, Ossie Davis, Geoffrey Holder, Avery Brooks, Dennis Haysbert, Dave “the Voice” Fennoy, Michael Dorn, Barry White, James Avery, Keith David, Michael Clarke Duncan, Billy D Williams, Isaac Hayes, Melvin Franklin, Teddy Pendergrass, Larry Graham, Lawrence Fishburn, Idris Elba all have in common the unmistakable roar. Their vocal presence, articulation and intellect demand attention and respect and like the lion their voices exude strength, masculinity and power. Here’s where I get in trouble. I often refl ...
Some dreams die hard. When I was kid in the 80's I lived for William Shatner's Captain Kirk. As far as I was concerned he was the Best actor that ever was! By 1987 and the premier of Star Trek the Next Generation I had cultivated a deep desire to be a Star Trek television actor. I didn't want to play a captain, and preferably not a human, I wanted to be a science officer like Leonard Nimoy or Brent Spiner, or maybe something all together different, a Star Trek first like Whoopi Goldberg. But like I said, some dreams die hard. In 2001 Kate Mulgrew brought the Voyager safely back to the Alpha Quadrant earlier than most of us expected and just 2 years after Avery Brooks abandoned Deep Space Nine. That same year Star Trek Enterprise premiered. We didn't give Scott Bakula much of a chance to captain the Enterprise. How could we? That damned song was just too awful to sit through every week. I marathon-ed the series a few years ago, and aside from the rocky start I was sad I didn't give it a proper go while it ...
Avery Brooks would’ve made a better Nick Fury from shield

*** I didn't know that... If you go back and watch that episode, after Will pulls the gift from his bag, is the moment he went off script.. you can tell by the responses Avery Brooks gave along with his expressions and how Will Smith brushed off his lip before he continued.. making sure not to break character.
there will be a lot of available coaches that are better than Brooks: JVG, George Carl, Avery Johnson, Mike Antoni
“watched this 20 times and I'm still laughing us tomorrow 😂
Coolest part of DragonCon a few years back was seeing Avery Brooks (Sisko from DS9). Such an authentically cool (and intense) guy.
Y'all still think Scott Brooks is a good coach huh.
I'm watching "The Captains Close-up," and having William Shattner interview Avery Brooks is a master stroke. Seriously.
he's our coach and we al count how many times it gets said at practice. It's obnoxious
I've decided I'm going to take a selfie every day and will be in the back in her class
I just realized: Mirror Sisko is just Avery Brooks acting normal.

Event! Tuesday, May 20, at 6 p.m. EST William G. McGowan Theater Special screening of Solomon Northup's Odyssey Directed by legendary African American director and cinematographer Gordon Parks, Solomon Northup’s Odyssey was first shown in 1984 as part of PBS's American Playhouse series, predating the Oscar-winning film 12 Years a Slave by three decades. The film features Avery Brooks in the title role. The National Archives will be screening a brand-new 16mm film print preserved by IndieCollect with support from the March on Washington Film Festival and the Ford Foundation. The new print, created by Colorlab of Rockville, MD, has been struck from the original negative, which was recently found in the vault of DuArt Film & Video by IndieCollect's founder Sandra Schulberg. After this one-time-only screening, IndieCollect is donating the print to the Library of Congress for safe-keeping. Following the screening, Warrington Hudlin, founder of the Black Filmmaker Foundation, will lead a discussion including ...

My room looks like an art gallery with all the projects I made this semester. I dig it.
The reason is that Ira Steven Behr intended for Sisko to be dead and in heaven, but Avery Brooks refused to play that
Want to see my babes tomorrow super bad
I finally viewed 12 Years A Slave. I can only say it was an average movie. The sister who won an Oscar did nothing deserve one besides get rapped and whipped. This movie was just another slave movie. Actually, the tv miniseries starring Avery Brooks was better than the movie. So in a nutshell, black actors and actresses will win Oscars for playing the roles of slaves, maids (the Help), bad cops (Training Day) and *** (Monsters Ball). I don't mind watching movies about slavery, but we need something based on stories like Denmark Vessey (spl?), the Stoner Rebellion, Nat turner and we are still waiting on a remake of Harriet Tubman! I hear they are now producing a movie based on the Haitian Rebellion and there is also a movie being made about Queen Nzinga! Mister, Danny Glover is producing a film, but I'm not sure who it is about. We need to spend money on these films domestic and foreign!
Watching TV and come across Roots: The Gift, it's like a convention with LeVar Burton, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks and Tim Russ!
Its very late, or early depending on your point of veiw, but gavin and I end the night with tears streaming down our cheeks after watching the best documentary we have seen in these past few years. As trekkies, William Shatners 2011 film titled, "The Captains" spoke to us on an extreamly.deep level, during many parts of this film, we had tears in our eyes, and I will just say, it was the closing words, that truly, started the tears flowing. I hope, someday, we are able to meet some of these captains, mainly Patrick Stewart, William Shatner and Avery Brooks, before they go to the stars above. It would be a dream come true for me, to finally meet such inspirational actors, and individuals, as well as give our little girls the chance to see some of the people who inspired us to be who we are and more.
So many Star Trek actors do voice overs of documentaries. Got one on now with Avery Brooks. Jonathan Frakes is another familiar voice.
Saw a picture of Wil Wheaton and Patrick Stewart, looking as if they were in a firefight dressed in TNG era uniforms made me think of the following list of characters from DUNE, but cast from any Star Trek franchise... Wil Wheaton as Paul. Patrick Stewart as Gurney Halleck (duh). Gates McFadden as Lady Jessica. Chris Pine as Duncan Idaho. Benedict Cumberbatch as Piter DeVries Avery Brooks (in a fat suit) as Baron Harkonnen George Takei as Thufir Hawat Nana Visitor as Reverend Mother Mohiam. Michael Dorn as The Beast Rabban Cirroc Lofton as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen John de Lancie as Emperor Shaddam IV Zoe Saldana as Chani Robert Beltran as Stilgar Jonathan Frakes as Duke Leto
Military Channel has showing programs about Biblical mysteries, hosted by Avery Brooks. I keep waiting to hear him say "Spen-SER!"
"You're like The Lord of the Rings of oils." - Brenna Joy McCullough to Robert Avery Brooks
I would hit on Avery Brooks so don't even feel ashamed about it.

My father in law is watching The Bible's Greatest Secrets ... Narrated by Avery brooks!

I went to see Gordon Parks' 1984 treatment of the Solomon Northup story which he called "Solomon Northup's Odyssey." It was part of a film festival on slavery yesterday at The Museum of the Moving Image.Love the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria; easy to get to from Manhattan, will go there again. This PBS docudrama gave a gentler interpretation of the narrative and we saw more of the everyday fears, frustrations, loves, and losses of the slave community as a whole. The women's issues surrounding Northup's saga were illuminated well. Avery Brooks was elegant, determined, and perhaps more three dimensional as Gordon's Solomon takes on a love interest that happens to also be the preferred mistress of Epps. The near-lynching of Northup was too grisly to be dealt with in 1980's tv. This film is equally relevant and should be used to show to younger audiences.
; 12 YEARS A SLAVE ; is a great film but NOT an original. The story of Solomon Northrup was filmed years ago starring AVERY BROOKS. Does anyone remember that movie ?
Re-read was through read by Avery Brooks. Both excellent, but I wish BARD would put up the older version.

I got skunked, sort of! I got 4 of RBP's Spenser novels today including a rare copy of Promised Land, the story that was used for the TV pilot starring Robert Urich, Avery Brooks, & Barbara Stock. But one of the books The Professional is a paperback! GR I only collect hardcovers. Anyone interested in a free pb copy of The Professional and Small Vices? I've had Small Vices for a long time now and both are decent shape. Vices has had only one loving owner. Must go to a good home with mystery fans. Let me know. :)
I love Avery Brooks. Especially when he was in Spencer for Hire. What is he doing now?

Watching "Facets" and I never realized how creepy the music gets in the Sisko as Joran scene. Great combined with Avery Brooks's acting
After watching The Captains documentary by Shatner...Avery Brooks being my favorite out of all the captain actors was only solidified. To be fair I really like Shatner, Stewart, Brooks, Mulgrew, Bakula AND Pine. Sisko remains my favorite though. Fun video.
So, found a new show I like. The BBC's "Luther". I'll start out by saying that I've always liked Idris Alba in whatever I've seen him in. He reminds me of Avery Brooks. But this show definitely beats a lot of American police dramas for sheer twistedness. For a country that wags its finger at the US for all our violent imagery in media, this show breaks the mold. Even Criminal Minds hasn't come up with criminals this twisted.
Not to downplay Avery Brooks, I love him as Sisko, I just ALSO want to see Idris Elba as Sisko
"12 Years A Slave" Was First Produced in 1984 - Starred Avery Brooks and Was First Directed by Gordon Parks?
