About "Breaking Barbi"

A slapstick comedy caper, in the spirit of John Waters and Monty Python, "Breaking Barbi" serves–beneath it's silly, comedic facade–as a social commentary on some of the absurd aspects of celebrity, and of a cultural addiction to smart phones.

Breaking Barbi: Stop The Selfies, Save The World!

A Tinder date gone astray leaves famous fitness selfie queen; Barbi, lost in the wilderness trying to survive despite Homeland Security, alien death rays and zero cell service.

Breaking Barbi: Synopsis:

Her name is Barbi; the sexy, world-famous selfie queen who refuses to be seen with any guy with less than 100,000 social media followers. Lusting after a young stud's hot body; Barbi's Tinder dream-date turns disastrous when she accidentally makes him plunge to his death, and she becomes fatefully lost in the wilderness. Without cell phone service, the clueless star eases her cell phone addiction by snapping selfies, as she tries to plot her way back to civilization–Hollywood. Not your average ditzy blonde, the sexy fitness selfie queen misses not only the beauty of nature, but a massive alien mothership shooting down a Homeland Security aircraft.

As surviving agents counter-attack to protect their top secret mission, Barbi meets Agent Radcliffe; Earth’s final hope. Through a series of misadventures, Barbi realizes that she must change her ways to become a better person. Facing her fear of losing fame, she dares to save the world from a fatal alien invasion.

With surviving Homeland Security agents scrambling to her defense; Barbi–still oblivious to the impeding doom of an alien invasion, goes through a series of slapstick misadventures. From wild animal attacks, to waking up with a sore butt, and apparently married to three touchy-feely Grey Tracer Aliens, Barbi has one last chance to escape, when she falls into the arms of Agent Kenny Radcliffe. Telling her how to escape, she is however still distracted by yet another one of her steamy daydreams about the chiseled hunk.

Well aware that her fame and glory days are over, Barbi runs into her sultry, selfie-queen rival who utterly destroys her delusions. Devastated, and with nothing left to live for, Barbi bumps back into Kenny; injured from hand-to-hand combat, and now caught in an alien death-ray. Escaping, she realizes she needs to honestly be the person she posts those inspirational quotes about. Barbi returns to the alien scene, grabs Agent Radcliffe’s weapon, and blows the mothership away. Impressed with her feat of bravery, Kenny offers her a job working in his top-secret government branch. Flattered, Barbi bravely accepts the challenge. Her new identity as "Agent Ronin" is born.

T. Nicole Designs Bracelets Included in Celebrity and Talent Gift Bags at 27th Annual Trumpet Awards

Celebrity and Talent Gift Bags for 27th Annual Trumpet Awards to Include T. Nicole Designs Black Onyx Bracelets

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Houston, Texas based T. Nicole Designs (http://designsbytnicole.com) is pleased to announce a selection of specially designed Black Onyx Bracelets will be included in Celebrity & Talent Gift Bags for the 27th Annual Trumpet Awards, filmed January 18, 2019 and airing February 17, 2019 on Bounce TV.

Brand founder and designer Tanesha Nicole previously partnered with Bounce TV for the 26th Annual Trumpet Awards, which aired January 20, 2018. This year’s gifted bracelets are the fulfillment of the network’s request for her to create a series of bracelet designs incorporating Black Onyx, to represent the show’s theme of empowerment and Black excellence.

Each bracelet incorporates Black Onyx beads, a lion head focal, and meaningful charms, such as the crescent moon. The result is a unique and distinctive adornment that can easily be dressed up or down. Black onyx exudes confidence and since ancient times has been believed to give the wearer the power to survive.

The bracelets are part of the T. Nicole Designs Fidelis Collection. "This Collection came from a personal place, serving as a physical representation of how fierce and determined I can be," said Tanesha in a recent interview. "Some days we have the inner saboteur that tells us that we are weak, that we aren’t good enough. Looking down and seeing a roaring lion head helps to banish negative thoughts and reminds us how determined and strong we all really are."

Tanesha says her clients appreciate that if they are at an event and in a room of 500 other people, the likelihood of seeing someone else with their same jewelry is slim. "My stone choices are what set my designs apart. I love that no single stone is exactly the same as another. Each has nuances that make it individual, just like the wearer."

The Fidelis Collection can be found here.

T. Nicole Designs was founded in 2012. The brand’s jewelry was recently worn by singer/songwriter Votte Hall on the 2019 Grammy's Red Carpet. It has also been worn by character Dro (played by Sarunus J. Jackson) on season 2 of HBO’s “Insecure.” Mr. Talkbox, who has won eight Grammys for his work on Bruno Mar’s “24 Karat” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Loyalty”, wore T. Nicole Designs bracelets during the 2018 Trumpet Awards telecast and in subsequent videos, which have received over 3.3 million views.

T. Nicole Designs is available at http://designsbytnicole.com. Contact Tanesha Nicole by email using the contact button at the top right of this news release. Follow T. Nicole Designs on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest (@TNicoleDesigns).

ABOUT T. NICOLE DESIGNS
It all started as a way to keep her mind off of being sick. Tanesha was severely ill, recently released from the hospital, and basically relegated to bed rest for several months. Her family said she needed a hobby; something to distract from the day-to-day drama and that would bring her a sense of control in a world that was in utter chaos. So she began with something she has always loved, gemstones. She could and still does spend hours fawning over gems and get overly giddy when going into the gem and mineral section at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. She made things just for herself, for her mom and sister and to her great surprise people began to ask her about what she was wearing and if she could make something for them.

And so, T. Nicole Designs (http://designsbytnicole.com) was born, like many gemstones, from the extreme pressures of life and formed in seemingly dark and lonely place. But after all that, what was meant as a distraction has emerged from the depths of despair to be something beautiful and beyond her wildest dreams.

T. Nicole Designs works with clients to create that perfect piece that is so personally “you,” or clients may pick one of the brand’s unique designs and make a twist on it to fit individual style and taste.

Tollefson & Miller created the stage show “The Ohmies.” Later, the essence of this production was developed into the TV show, “The Moblees,” for CBC in Canada. Series development will be under the supervision of Heather Kenyon at Citizen Kids.

“This partnership allows Citizen Kids to enter the market confident that our projects can succeed, not only as a high-quality creative work, but also fully realized from a consumer products point-of-view thanks to Silver Buffalo’s invaluable insight and leading brand designers. We also know that on the other side, we have a partner with great relationships we can trust,” says Kenyon.

EEK! Games Announces the House Party Video Game Music Competition

Submit your music for House Party

Inviting all independent artists to submit their music for the House Party video game and a chance to win cash prizes.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, February 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Eek! Games today announced an exciting new competition for all independent musicians to enter their music, to be featured in its House Party Game on PC.
Eek! is inviting all unsigned artists to enter for this unique opportunity to have their music playing in the House Party game, which already has hundreds of thousands of players, with many millions more enjoying streams of the game on YouTube.

Entrants will be able to submit their instrumental soundtracks (or with limited vocals) by nominating themselves through Twitter – @EekGamesLLC, with a link to their music. Following four weeks of nominations and submissions, the Eek! Games team will select the top 40 compositions across 4 music genres (EDM, Chill Beats, Hip Hop beats and Pop). Once the Top-40 list is chosen by the Eek! Team, the songs will be voted upon by the House Party fans and players, who will then help select the final 5 winners.

Eek! Games will award the most voted artist a prize of $1,000 in cash, and $250 each for four runner-ups. The winners music composition will be played throughout the House Party game for players’ enjoyment and to enhance the game experience.

Bobby Ricci, the CEO and Founder of Eek! Games, " It’s time for HOUSE PARTY’s soundtrack to expand past just our one song. Since we’ve got a bunch of passionate music lovers on the Eek Games team, we thought this would be a great opportunity to provide budding artists with a chance to get their music heard by hundreds of thousands of HOUSE PARTY players!"

Eek! is accepting all entries for the House Party Music competition through March 8, 2019. Voting by the public will commence and run through the end of March, and the winners, based on popular vote, will be announced in April, 2019.

Musicians be warned though, House Party is not your mother’s sim game. It’s quite risqué in nature and touches on topics of debauchery, sex and comedic fun between player and the zany, therapy-needing cast. House Party is this generational “American Pie™” meets “Porky’s™”, but it’s executed in a smart game about choices, which doesn't insult your intelligence. It's fun for males and females, alike, delivering a unique gameplay mechanic through an advanced AI system whereby the player’s every choice influences the reaction and outcome of the game.
The players and community acknowledging it as”One of the most fun dating/hookup sims.”

NAMIC and WICT Launch Joint Workforce Diversity Survey

President and CEO of NAMIC

CAE, president and CEO of WICT

Survey Provides Key Ethnic and Gender Diversity Metrics for Cable Industry

The key to advancing diversity & inclusion is access, retention and promotion. This survey data is a critical resource for our industry to review the metrics that reveal opportunities for action.”

— A. Shuanise Washington, NAMIC's president and CEO

NEW YORK, USA, February 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — NAMIC, Inc. (National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications) and WICT (Women in Cable Telecommunications) today announced the launch of a joint survey for the next editions of the NAMIC AIM (Advancement Investment Measurement) and the WICT PAR Initiative (Pay Equity, Advancement Opportunities, and Resources for Work/Life Integration). The survey opened on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019 and closes on Friday, Mar. 15.

NAMIC and WICT have engaged Mercer, a human resources consulting firm, to conduct the joint survey. Funded by the Walter Kaitz Foundation, the survey will focus on the current state of ethnic and gender diversity within the cable and communications industry. The survey will also benchmark data vital to the advancement of ethnic and gender diversity in the media industry and will account for geographical distinctions among the locations of survey participants.

Mercer will independently manage the development of customized data reports for each participating company. Top line findings from this research initiative will be presented at the NAMIC-WICT Diversity Town Hall the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019 in New York City as part of the industry’s Diversity Week.

"NAMIC is excited to collaborate with WICT and the participating media companies in pursuit of our shared goal of increasing opportunities for talented women and people of color,” said A. Shuanise Washington, NAMIC's president and CEO. “The key to advancing diversity and inclusion is access, retention and promotion. This survey data is a critical resource for our industry to review the metrics that track progress and reveal opportunities for action.”

Added Maria E. Brennan, CAE, president and CEO of WICT, “The research is clear. Diverse teams can improve workplace culture, increase problem solving, and boost innovation — all adding to a company’s bottom line. WICT and NAMIC recognize the underlying business case for a diverse and inclusive workplace, which makes the AIM/PAR data a key competitive advantage for our industry. We extend our gratitude to the industry for its recognition of the value that this original research provides.”

Launched in 1999, the NAMIC employment survey, formerly entitled, "A Look Toward Advancement: Multi-ethnic Employment in the Communications Industry," provided a baseline of statistics and perceptions about the state of multi-ethnic diversity in the cable and communications industry.

Rebranded as “NAMIC AIM,” the employment survey provides rich data used by companies to support goals for sustaining a robust pipeline of diverse talent. Key outgrowths of the NAMIC employment survey include the association’s Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP), presented in partnership with the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, and the NAMIC Leadership Seminars.

Since 2003, the WICT PAR Survey has measured the status of women employees in the cable industry based on three criteria: Pay equity, advancement opportunities and resources for work/life integration. Combined with a comprehensive advocacy program, the PAR Initiative helps companies set goals, institutionalize practices, measure progress and achieve results.
