What makes TPEG different?

Posted by tpegonline on November 29, 2010

First of all, it is not about me, Tyrone Turner. It is about ALL OF US who are up-and-coming poets, singers, actors, film makers, sketch artists, dancers, etc.

We consider ourselves the Golden Boy Promotions of this game. For those of you not familiar with Oscar De La Hoya’s company, Golden Boy Promotions, what makes them unique in boxing promotions is that all of the principals were or are still currently champion boxers (Oscar De La Hoya, Bernard Hopkins, and Shane Mosley). I am a poet as well as an event organizer and promoter, so I’m indeed a “player coach.”

We’re looking to build upon the strong foundation of existing poetry slam formats and create a more dynamic dramatic show that appeals to all of the senses.

“Back In Love Again” audio project

Posted by tpegonline on November 24, 2010


“We ain’t your granddaddy’s poetry slam.”

Not that anything is wrong with poetry slams, we just have a different interpretation of them and how they can lead to other form of artistic expression.

For instance, I, Tyrone Turner, selected 10 poems from my soon-to-be-published book, For the Love of Women of Color, to use for a dramatic audio and eventually a short film and stage play called “Back In Love Again”.

The poems “How Could You?” and “A Tall Glass of Water”were written by and are the intellectual property of Tyrone Turner, Copyright 2010 and Beyond – All rights reserved!

Tyrone Turner is a co-founder of Turning Point Entertainment Group (TPEG).

OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROJECT

In short, this project will lead to CD, DVD, MP3, and MP4 products – along with live performances.

I can’t do this alone. That is why I’m looking to partner with people who do voice-over work, other poets, musicians, singers, actors, promoters, and audio and video techs.

I do not intend to be the voice of the poems, but I wanted to demonstrate the model for you to give you a better picture of what I’m proposing.

Click on the links below to listen to the overviews and the dramatic expressions of two of the 10 selected poems.

Part 1 of 10 “How Could You?”, (2 minutes, 8 seconds).

I gave you my heart as a love offering and you cast it way like some loathsome thing.

In you I had my greatest hopes. Now without you, I am living my worst nightmare.

I hoped that our love bonding would one day result in a bright-eyed bundle of joy.

Instead you have given me the heavy burden of rejection to carry the rest of my days.

Your dagger has dug so deep that no surgeon could ever stitch the wound.

I really, really did love you.

I still do.

At one time, the mere thought of you sent me soaring over the highest mountains.

Now, your bitter-sweet memory makes me cry enough to flood over the deepest sea.

For you I stopped being like a ravenous dog chasing after every skirt that I came across.

In return, you pulled up my skirt and violated me. You didn’t even leave $5 on the table afterwards.

I let you pull my strings and you took those strings, made a noose, and put them around my neck.

You’ve shattered my being like a glass and turned my brown eyes blue.

Sweetheart, how could you?

Part 2 of 10 “A Tall Glass of Water” (2 minutes, 54 seconds)

You tread these desert highways in search of some satisfaction.

All that you want is fro someone to hold you, share goals with you, and for someone to satisfy your body, mind, and soul.

All of the others that you’ve encountered were dried-up wells but I’m your oasis, my dear.

I’ll shower you with affection and I’ll have you surfing on the waves of good times.

I will help you attain what you desire and conquer that which you fear.

You will be baptized with tender loving care.

All of that old heartache will be washed away. You will no longer thirst because you will have more than you ever imagined.

You will be floating on the sea of love.

You’re probably asking yourself, “Is this man promising me the world?”

Well, sort of because you’ll be refreshed and you whistle be be wet like you just chugged down a tall glass of water.

##############################

So, let me know what you think.

Thanks!
