Listen to internet radio with Dwritewell on Blog Talk Radio

Teen Co-Host, 13 year old Adia Colton, & Host Daphne Dwritewell Williams will get into the mind of dynamic Indy Writer & Film Producer, Abdu Dandridge to discover how he started and the importance of giving birth to your ideas. He will discuss how his team was able to get into 6 major theatres while creating a Radio and TV Buzz that has industry people looking to partner with him because they too want Pressure.

Not your typical synopsis, Pressure, the movie is about the harsh realities that youth endure living within low-income communities, but don’t be fooled in thinking that Abdul Dandridge’s film is your cliché hood film laced with violence because it is far from that! It is wrapped in twisted plots that will leave a mothers stomach in knots, but she along with her son’s MUST watch and discuss to live life on purpose.

First off, I will not allow Motivated Beauty Teenpreneurs to be associated with a stereotypical film, so although the movie has adult language (children curse when their parents aren’t around, so believe that), it hits home on various tribulations Teenagers face, endure and survive. Pressure is a MUST see! Why do we forget about how we acted as a teens, what we got into, and what we as latchkey children were able to endure, and how we made it over?

If someone didn’t give us the Peer Pressure chat and what we needed growing up ONLY God knows where we would be. Pressure the film will squeeze out every gift that is lying dormant within you, thus awaken the giant within you, & you’re teen while shaking you up on the realities of the world that your teens are living in.

Pressure is a film that teaches youth, and adults (who think it is cool not grow up) to mature and follow their passions, pursue their dreams and simply become who they already are by watching this film while getting out of your own way, thus applying all the lessons it delivers.

With many corners to turn, strategically and creatively, the Film Director, Abdu Dandridge doesn’t give it all away within the trail, but does wet your appetite for waiting to view Pressure  as the sequence of events opens like an intriguing page turning book that leaves you pondering the next move the actors’ life takes as he is pressured by teens, his block, life while pressing forward with his thoughts, gifts, and ideas.

Like in life often it offers a panoramic view of our trails, victorious, struggles and tribulation, we must make tough decisions to get to the core of who shall become, but we must learn to get rid of all The Pressure in our now moments in order to create significant life altering move that will never be erased because we (youth & adults) didn’t give into the Pressure of our neighborhood circumstance.

Are you ready for PRESSURE?

Savoring the initial rush of the day come settle in, and dine where young vibrate as well as gorgeous Owner Jacqueline Mitchell has changed the game with Butterfly Blue Restaurant & Bar in the Sugar Hill Section of Harlem, New York.

Opening its doors February, 2006 with rave reviews, Butterfly Blue Restaurant & Bar is dubbed ‘the new kid on the block’- affectionately called, ‘The Blue Spot’ is one of the top eateries in Harlem today, period! Like Butterfly Blue, Self-Taught Executive Chef, Jacqueline Mitchell is innovative; combining her mom’s secret recipes with a  pinch of her own flavor that often gets rave reviews from frequent customers. Famous Fashion Guru alongside her entourage, Kimora Lee-Simmons felt so comfortable, she invited herself into the kitchen and began complimenting the Chef after eating succulent Friend Chicken & Waffles.

Like a warm winter sweater, dimly lit indigo hues wraps itself around the 60-seat room while the smooth live Jazz invites guests in like a moth to a flame to enjoy the nourishing ambiance coupled with impeccable service topped off with a kaleidoscope of aromas spiraling out of the kitchen. A cozy jewel of a place; expect an upscale dining experience. Unlike the competition, it’s very attractive, intimate, and rather comfortable. Complimenting the hand painted rhinestone studded butterfly in the center of the room are various shades of blue butterflies with smoked glass wall scones with shiny chocolate hard wood floors complimented by matching tables and chairs.

Offering a panoramic view, the exclusive back corner fit for royalty inspires romance. The roomy cream leather booth has exquisite embroidered tapestry  that exudes class; simply accentuating the dazzling fiber optic lights suspended by black crushed velvet making it a very semi-secluded spot for networking, power meetings, and for setting the mood for perhaps a night-cap after indulging in an array of culinary foreplay of delicious entrees massaged with spices with a lot of added flavor. Demanding immediate consumption, the Chef blends savory staples; like moist pesto salmon with fresh collard greens that are well seasoned to a perfect palate pleasing delightful taste without the soul food kitchens favorite ‘pork’ topped with warm cornbread with a Caribbean flavored twist. Who said man can’t live by cornbread alone?

Emerging amongst the ocean of restaurants in Harlem, Butterfly Blue has reasonable size portions, exquisite ambiance, quality service, and affordable prices with an undeniable ‘I’ll be back’ kind of taste. Top it all off with homemade rich cheesecake drizzled with a touch of strawberry syrup only enhanced by a sweet & juicy pre-sliced strawberry with a light crunchy crust that will have any dessert lover closing both eyes sinfully lusting for more while enjoying each morsel. Wash it all down with a Caribbean Island themed Specialty Drink. Shhh, don’t tell anyone about Butterfly Blue Restaurant & Bar it is reserved for cool people only.
