New film "Love is All You Need?" pushes the envelope of activist media
Huffington Post - about 1 month
The New York Times and others have reported in recent months that hate crimes against minorities are on the rise. According to numbers from the FBI adjusted for underreporting by the Matthew Shepard Foundation, there are more than 9,000 hate crimes committed in the United States on an annual basis. These include everything from vandalism to murder motivated by bias based on race, religion, being LGB or T, among others. Although we may find this alarming, unless it is happening to us directly, it can be difficult to continue to be emotionally touched by such events, much less appreciate their impact on affected individuals and communities. Fortunately, there is an antidote in a movie that has been recently released. Love is All You Need? is an independent film based on the multi-award winning short of the same name that has an alternate reality backdrop of a world inverted: heterosexuals are the deviants in a world dominated by gays and lesbians. A poignant scene early in the film sho ...

Jeryl Brunner: The Hidden Hitmakers: We Only Know Their Songs
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Chances are that most of us have never heard of Patty and Mildred Hill. The Kentucky-born sisters lived during the turn of the 19th century. But the song they penned more than a century ago continues to be sung by hundreds of millions each year ranging in age from four to 104. In fact, according to Guinness World Records, the Hill tune is one of the world's most frequently sung dittys. You hear it in movies. Marilyn Monroe famously serenaded President John F. Kennedy with it. Even the orbiting Apollo 9 crew crooned the tune while in space.  So why don't most of us know the Hill sisters, the "Happy Birthday to You" composers? Why is it that for most of us, "My Heart Will Go On" belongs to Celine Dion? (Although it was actually written by  James Horner and Will Jennings.) I started thinking about the people who actually write these hit songs. Who are they? Who is the person behind the hit? Case in point, when Hannah Montana sensation Emily Osment came out with the song, "I ...
