Passion is a bold bastard. Beliefs are even worse. Oh just FORGET about "Innovation" or "Creativity." They're all evil. They're all audacious things, intent on grabbing hold of the human heart, forcing it to beat deeper and even stronger with each enduring pulse. Yeah that's it -- a bunch of instigators with the NERVE to inspire young NYC teens into believing that they actually have a legitimate place and power in this world. Passion, Innovation, Creativity, and Beliefs. What IS this? Who gave THEM the right to motivate and empower young people to yearn for growth? YEARNING for growth? This is outrageous. Those bastards!
to tell you, but here at HarlemLive, we believe in that bastard.
We embrace the strength of having a passionate belief system, we
grow through innovation, and we ARE creativity. WE ARE HARLEMLIVE;
the hottest online youth magazine, created, edited, and produced
by teens of NYC.
folks...that next level...is here. HarlemLive is going VIRTUAL...almost.
In previous years, HarlemLive has met and produced out of a small
... but manageable space inside of 1330 5th avenue [W. 111th St.]
in Harlem. The space wasn't horribly difficult to work with; you
could take a short-winded stretch here and there...maybe inhale
a few oxygen molecules without coughing...it was...manageable. However
recently, HarlemLive, an Internet publication, has been relocated
into a completely different space -- drastically confined and equipped
with limited and/or nonexistent Internet access. This is an
INTERNET publication; the pure logic is dwindling.
a multi-award winning news publication, HarlemLive's resources are
commonly overestimated. We're assumed to have the leisure of any
resource deemed logically fit for a publication of our caliber,
but that is but only...an assumption. Our resources are quite limited
as we've become masters of squeezing $1.00 out of a dime. Ironically,
HarlemLive has accomplished more than what many other organizations
with a broader resource base, only dream of doing.
dream this. A designated time, place, and world where every staff
member of HarlemLive delves into the surreal, conjuring up the very
essence of radical creativity and innovation, fueled by the active
exchange of inspiration and ideas faster than the speed of DSL.
A virtual world where all of us here at HarlemLive get together
to sculpt, build, and improve the quality of HarlemLive.org, the
Internet publication that we're all so dedicated to bringing onto
the bright computer screens of our readers. As opposed to getting
into futile tiffs over square tiles or issues of drastically confined
space, HarlemLive is flying into the unconfined. We are now bringing
you this online youth magazine from designated bases all over New
York City --our homes. That's versatility.
