Have you noticed a ‘trend’ in today’s fictional villains? They appear to be damaged mental cases instead of outright evil people the reading and viewing audience should fear. In this video essay, Charles brings up a few examples of a few enduring villains and why they deserve their place in literary or film history.
There are times when engaging in a conversation you expect to remain civil, you’ll find there’s no other alternative but to cut that other user loose. This entry explains it’s not personal, but it helps to keep you sane in this time of ‘argumentative culture’.
The rise of opinion shows has provided viewers with information they want to hear, rather than need to hear which is interpreted as real news. This piece breaks down the differences with a solution the current audience has seen in the past, but not ready in this modern media-obsessed era.
This is Charles L. Chatmon, owner of Chatmon’s Books. How many of you know I’m an author? That I wrote a book called The Voices of South Central? How many of you also know it’s for sale right now on the Chatmon’s Books online store?
Here’s a description for you:
Charles L. Chatmon, author of The Depths of My Soul: Poems from the heart of a man, is a fresh new voice in the world of poetry. The world he depicts is a harsh, raw view of the streets. He doesn’t flinch from the truth of what he sees and hears in South Central Los Angeles. But he doesn’t give in to despair. His poems radiate hope and strength. While many of his subjects depict the need for social change, others are tender poems, concerned only with the love between a man and a woman. Chatmon’s voices in the book can be one of an outraged critic, lover, and visionary. Don’t miss this important contribution to American poetry!

The subject of suicide is not a pleasant one to talk about, but Charles shares his thoughts on a final act which robs everyone, including the person who commits it. Hopefully the advice shared in this edition of the podcast will help those in need. #suicide #youarenotalone #wearerooting4u
Online presentation by NetNoir.com allowing me (and some good brothers) to present my poem ‘A Message to Black Women’. Here are a few of the emails, IM’s I received after the poem was finished. This was the moment I knew I had to publish a book. ‘A Message’ was eventually published in The Depths of My Soul and you can hear it on my YouTube page 🙂 For the record, CChat66 morphed into my current handle, so for your (dis) pleasure, the poem is after the reactions below. ‘A Message’ or hear it . #blackwomen #poem
