Ephraim, triple threat in the entertainement industry

November 5, 2009

As “Ephraim Benton” was the top terms people used to find my blog,I’ve decided to profile him for those whom cares and are willing to know much more than a picture took at the  precious screen recently in LA.Naturally, I went through his website ephraimsworld.com and was surprise how fresh and funky the site was though it’s a big mess to navigate through all the sections, the colorfull teddy bears made me think about the cover of “ late registration.” From Kanye west.

Unsurprisingly, we learn that Ephraim Benton don’t play and he’s hungry enough to become a “triple threat in the entertainement industry”.On the top of producing an animated documentary about the life of President Barack Obama titled “HIStory” that was released for free virally this past January, he has already executive produced, written, directed and starred in two short films, “Brown Paper Bags” and “3 Quarters of Face Value”. In 2009, he started with his cameo appearance in Oprah’s movie “PUSH: Based On The Novel By Sapphire”.For more info, check out his website or interact with him on Twitter.

THE CONSPIRACY THEORY: No wonder the Dark Ages were so dark—they didn’t really exist. The years between 614  and 911 never happened, yet due to some suspicious mathematical manipulation, they have been included in the Western calendar. To cover up the time shift, three centuries of fictional events and nonexistent figures like Charlemagne have been squeezed into the historical record. Reset your watches: We’re actually living in the early 1700s.
