Holiday Wish : May 2020 #HealTheWorld

Thanks SO MUCH for the love ! THAT’S WHAT MATTERS!

As we take our baby steps forward … – just as we were relaxing for the holidays – we were alerted to trolls posting lies and fake reviews about the project where-ever they can 🙄 – most recently on Amazon – and then “following” our account posing as Jeff Bezos 🙄 …

Since we found out that we are on the List of Eligible Contenders for an #Oscars2020 nomination – yay – GRANTED – we KNOW we are a LONG shot for a nom – it’s a first film for us, and we are so tiny – running with the big productions – many good films from studios etc …

However …. – even as a ” #DarkHorse candidate – it’s a wonderful opportunity for the project and all involved, for the work to get seen … I’m no egomaniac – but – this is a good film and I’m proud of it — and of the team …

RIGHT NOW : is SUCH a crucial time – where these trolls can really affect us – we’ve had GREAT reviews so far – which is why they went into action … –

it’s a crucial time for the film to be viewed fairly by the Academy Voters – especially during the #Holidays – Voting begins January 2 and ends January 7th … so – added “trolling” is obviously a conscious attempt to harm us ( and me ) – it’d be awesome if anyone reading this might help us in reporting the abusive comments and the accounts targeting us.

– and – if you like stuff about the movie + soundtrack – it would go such a long way toward countering these online evils, with positive reviews – that would help us and – this project – a ton ~ we made it to spread JOY and LOVE – so we wish for it to multiply … even in the face of negativity …

The project champions feminist, lgbtq, black lives matter and climate change causes, and I am personally outspoken – so it’s to be expected – however, it is not deserved and a better online community will result from us all pushing back against such obvious attempts to harm the project.

The film also attempts to “shatter” not only #glassceilings but also “Sound Barriers” on a variety of levels – by “breaking” some “cinematic rules” – so it’s not a “typical” movie – because – I didn’t set out to make anything “typical.”

Since day one – in 2011 when I began posting Job Openings requesting that we were especially hoping to receive #Resumes from #Women , persons in the #LGBTQ + #AfricanAmerican community – with the intent of a #Diversity based #FemaleCrew
for a project that deals with these issues as well as #MeToo and #ClimateEmergency way back in 2011 – we experienced shocking pushback – JUST from the Adverts alone ! Just – for a diversity based – job opening ! – from those who don’t like to see the world healing from racism, sexism, homophobia and climate denial. Unfortunately, in the entertainment industry – some of these things come from competitors or personal disgruntlement. Sigh. 🙄

We would SO appreciate it – if everybody helps us push back at these creeps, by clicking “report abuse” and even reporting the accounts posting these obviously sometimes personally motivated, often politically motivated, homophobic, misogynist and racist lies / abuses.

Thank you Again for your Love because THAT’s WHAT MATTERS !

Happy Holidaze and EVERY DAY for you and your families !

#POLL about #TransgenderRights : #Question for #Transgender Individuals :

Hello ALL ! I’d love your advice on a question regarding the #WORD : #Transvestite … used in a particular #Context … when spoken by a film character onscreen …

eVe N’ god ; This Female is Not Yet Rated ™   (2017)   

 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6352534/  


 I ASKED both personal friends and Online in general … whether the word “tranny” spoken by an onscreen character in a film was a pejorative term in all contexts … the response was “ it depends upon the context” which makes sense … when we shot the scene, I did not feel comfy saying that word … so i switched it to “Transvestite” … bc the CHARACTER is saying that word while “in character” … the gist of the line is : “ i know some transvestites who could teach you ( misogynists / males / people in general ) a few things about #genderstudies ” … (copyright Cali Lili Indies™PWMiM™  Cali Lili ) … So … Now that the film +  album are completed … but not yet released … I am wondering …how do YOU feel about that line ? … it would cost production funds to change the line as is in the film right now … but i will definitely consider seeking from investors a budget to change it, if it is harmful / hurtful … but … it’s SO difficult for me to gauge IF it actually IS offensive / harmful … bc …. the FILM is COMPLETELY SUPPORTIVE of THE ENTIRE #Rainbow #Spectrum of #LGBTQIA  … in fact, SUPPORTING ALL OF US in the #LGBTQIA #CivilRights #WomensRights #Science #HumanRights Family  is the main theme of the ENTIRE film … !   I’d love your thoughts please …

Saint In The #CityOfAngels ™Gather Up Your Smiles© #ImmigrantsMakeAmericaGreat #CivilRights #Dreamers #BuenosDias 


I dedicate the song to Videl,

and to his community, our sisters and brothers.

I’m releasing it with the other “singles” ahead of the album, as a shoutout / love letter to “The Dreamers” here and every-where.

To the Dreamer in your own soul.

In Memory of Videl Diaz Mariscal,

A “Saint” i met in the “City of Angels”

… gone too soon at a local hospital

where I sang him this song …

he responded with a smile and the heart monitor showed us that he could hear it…

Videl grew gardens for an apartment complex in the “city of the angels”

He planted a white Lily on his last Christmas here.

Videl was ALWAYS smiling

his eyes smiled even when his mouth looked serious …

his energy … glowed

Besides the gardening,

he also cleaned the bathrooms + swept the grounds there too,

and

Videl was my friend.

When he told me they had put him on some Meds, + sheepishly showed me the bottle … I am not a doctor, but I perceived instantly that this was not a good sign … personally I try to maintain health with food and healthy habits. Of course Videl was old enough to be my grandpa or even great grandpa, but … still, I could do nothing to interfere with his doctors’ prescription … and frankly, I doubt he had health insurance, so I was clueless about what was going on … OH, and he barely spoke English, so … we communicated mostly non-verbally ….

I still wish I could have saved his life some-how.

It took a LONG time for me to manage my grief at his passing. That grief hit me like a ton of bricks, out of nowhere. Honestly, I didn’t even know Videl all that well … but he is deeply in my heart and I still grieve for him bc I feel our healthcare system, and his employers, failed him. To an extent, I feel that I failed him too.

Videl’s community has touched me in so many ways since I moved to L.A. from NYC…

This song is also a “love letter” to the as yet unnamed parking attendant at the local emergency room I had to be rushed to, when I dislocated my shoulder after a recording session.

The gentleman working as a parking attendant at that local hospital, was the only kind person i met at both of the hospitals.

Doctors, nurses, receptionists, left me to languish screaming in agony from that dislocated shoulder …

but that parking attendant … working for less than minimum wage I assume … he was the only one that cared … the only one with sincere empathy that night … + he kept saying to me “ mama good, mama strong …” that man too, is a “Saint’ in this City Of Angels.

And

this song is a love letter to the Mexican-American young girl I met outside the Cat Hospital, moments after my beloved "CallieCat” was put to sleep by that cold system inside.

The Girl, called herself “A Stranger,” walked up to me at midnight outside that Cat Hospital and showed me the kind of compassion that Veterinary Doctor could not

As my kittycat, CallieCat was writhing in pain at the VCA, I felt my heart rip, straight out of my chest …

and then outside on that cold, dark, empty night, “The Stranger” walked up to me, with a look on her face that can only be described as “Holy” …

and with that look, the “Saint in the City of Angels” ™© look,

she hugged me

and said :

“ Im here to tell you, your cat is in the better place"

In anguish, I managed to say, “who are you"?

And she said, ….” just… a stranger” …

she was just as confused as I was … as though somehow she didn’t even know why she was speaking to me … as though it was her “calling” …

and then, with a question mark, she walked away, into that night, and my heart, forever.

These songs, this album, this movie, are my “calling” …

And so … this is the “hugg” that I come out into “This Night,” the “Darkness,”

To share with you :

Hello Strangers

Who Work With Us

To Build a Better World.

Let’s tend this Garden Together

in All the Cities of the Angels,

During the “Seasons Of Light ” 2017

+ forever,

Let US Be “The Light” …

To “The Strangers,”

You and I are, “ strangers no more.”

***

This song is An Ironic Gypsy Smile
