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 ...
