Darryl Matthews McDaniels, better known by his stage name DMC, is an American musician and rapper. He is a founding member of the hip hop group Run–D. M. C. and is considered one of the pioneers of hip hop culture. McDaniels grew up in Queens, he was born to an unwed mother. He was a ward of the Foundling, in foster care, until placed with the McDaniels and adopted by them, he attended Rice High School in Manhattan and enrolled in St. John's University in Queens. McDaniels first became interested in hip hop music after listening to recordings of Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. In 1978, McDaniels taught himself to DJ in the basement of his parents' home, using turntables and a mixer given to him by his older brother, Alford. During this period he adopted the stage name "Grandmaster Get High"; that year, McDaniels sold his DJ equipment, after his friend Joseph "Run" Simmons acquired his own turntables and mixer. After Jam-Master Jay – who had a reputation as the best young DJ in Hollis – joined the group, Run encouraged McDaniels to rap rather than DJ.
McDaniels came to prefer rapping to mixing records, adopted the nickname of "Easy D". In 1981, he dropped the "Easy D" moniker in favor of "DMcD", the way he signed his work in school, to the shorter "D. M. C.". This new nickname alternately stood for "Devastating Mic Control" or "Darryl Mac", his nickname since childhood as referenced in the lyrics of the song "King of Rock". In 1984, the trio released their self-titled debut album and became successful in the hip-hop industry; the group's success reached its peak with their third album Raising Hell. The album went to No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, making Run-D. M. C; the most popular hip-hop group at the time. During this time, McDaniels began to build a reputation as a heavy drinker, he was known to drink up to eight 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor a day and was arrested twice for public intoxication and driving while intoxicated. In 1987 Run-D. M. C. Wrote "Christmas in Hollis" for A Very Special Christmas.
The music video for "Christmas in Hollis" was shot in Queens. Run-D. M. C. Filmed the video during their 1987 tour. DMC's mother made a guest appearance in the video. In 1997, McDaniels began to develop a deep depression, he became unhappy with the rigorous routine of touring and performing, with being away from his wife and newborn son. He began to rely on prescription drugs and alcohol to ease the pain. While on tour, McDaniels noticed, he was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia, a vocal disorder which causes involuntary spasms of the larynx muscles. He believes it was caused by the aggressive way in which he performs his lyrics compounded with the years of heavy drinking. Meanwhile, McDaniels began to have creative differences with his bandmates in Run-D. M. C. Which by was well past its prime as a commercially successful hip-hop group. A longtime fan of artists such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Harry Chapin, McDaniels wanted to move towards a slower, softer sound which suited his now troubled voice. Run wanted to continue with the aggressive, hard rock-edged, sound.
These disagreements caused McDaniels to sit out most of the recording of Crown Royal. He appeared on only three songs. Feeling depressed and suicidal, McDaniels heard fellow adoptee Sarah McLachlan's song "Angel" on the radio; the song touched McDaniels so that it inspired him to reassess his life and career. He credits her album Surfacing with saving his life. With a new outlook on life, McDaniels decided to write his autobiography. While researching his early years, his mother, revealed a shocking secret: Darryl had been placed for adoption when he was three months old. According to Bannah, his birth mother was a woman of Dominican descent named Bernada Lovelace, he learned that he was born in Harlem, not Hollis, Queens, as he had always believed. As a child, McDaniels knew he did not look like the rest of his family, with the revelation, he understood why; the news inspired him to search for his birth mother. He began working with the VH1 network on a documentary chronicling his quest, his autobiography, King of Rock: Respect, My Life with Run-DMC, was released in January 2001.
In February 2006, VH1 premiered the documentary titled DMC: My Adoption Journey. The program ends with McDaniels reuniting with his birth mother, who turned out to be named Berncenia and despite previous beliefs, was not, in fact, of Dominican descent, he thanks her for her choice because had he not been placed for adoption, Run-D. M. C. Would have never existed. In March 2006, McDaniels released Checks Thugs and Rock N Roll. Produced and Music Directed by Romeo Antonio; the first single, "Just Like Me", features an interpolation of Harry Chapin's "Cat's in the Cradle" performed by McDaniels' musical savior, Sarah McLachlan. During a recording session, McLachlan revealed to McDaniels that she, had been adopted. McDaniels collaborated with Adoptee Zara Philips on "I'm Legit." He testified before the New Jersey State Legislature in support of legislation to restore adopted adults' access to their original birth certificates. The legislation McDaniels supported was signed by Governor Chris Christie and became effective on January 1, 2017.
As a New York born adoptee, however, McDaniels did not have access to his own original birth record---he hired a private investigator to help find his birth family in New York. McDaniels had written the first draft of his autobiography before learning he was adopted and was wor

Seattle International Film Festival
The Seattle International Film Festival, held annually in Seattle, Washington since 1976, is among the top film festivals in North America. Audiences have grown steadily; the SIFF runs for more than three weeks, in May/June, features a diverse assortment of predominantly independent and foreign films, a strong contingent of documentaries. SIFF 2006 included more than 300 films and was the first SIFF to include a venue in neighboring Bellevue, after an ill-fated early attempt. However, in 2008, the festival was back to being in Seattle, had a slight decrease in the number of feature films; the 2010 festival featured over 400 films, shown in downtown Seattle and its nearby neighborhoods, in Renton and Juanita Beach Park. The festival began in 1976 at the Moore Egyptian Theater; the first five festivals were held at The Moore Egyptian, now back under its earlier name the Moore Theater and functioning as a concert venue. When founders Dan Ireland and Darryl Macdonald of the Moore Egyptian lost their lease, they founded the Egyptian theater in a former Masonic Temple on Seattle's Capitol Hill.
The Egyptian theater remains a prime festival venue to this day, although the festival now uses about half a dozen cinemas, with the exact roster varying from year to year. During the 1980s, SIFF audiences developed a reputation for appreciating films that did not fit standard industry niches, such as Richard Rush's multi-layered The Stunt Man. SIFF was instrumental in the entry of Dutch films into the United States market, including the first major American debut for director Paul Verhoeven; the festival includes a component, unique among major film festivals: a four-film "Secret Festival". Those who attend the Secret Festival do not know in advance what they will see, they must sign an oath that they will not reveal afterwards what they have seen. In general, SIFF has a reputation as an "audience festival" rather than an "industry festival"; the festival partially overlaps the Cannes Film Festival, which can reduce attendance by industry bigwigs. The SIFF group curates the Global Lens film series, the Screenwriters Salon, Futurewave, coordinates SIFF-A-Go-Go travel programs, co-curates the 1 Reel Film Feastival at Bumbershoot and the Sci-Fi Shorts Film Festival at the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame.
In 2006, Longhouse Media launched the SuperFly Filmmaking Experience, in partnership with the Seattle International Film Festival, which brings youth together from diverse backgrounds to work collaboratively on film projects that promote awareness of indigenous issues and mutual understanding of each other's cultures. Fifty youth from across the United States arrive in Seattle to travel to a local Pacific Northwest reservation to create 4 films in 36 hours. November 28, 2006, SIFF and Seattle mayor Greg Nickels announced that SIFF would soon have a home and a year-round screening facility in what has been the Nesholm Family Lecture Hall of McCaw Hall, the same building at Seattle Center that houses the Seattle Opera; the city contributed $150,000 to the $350,000 project. This auditorium was the site of most press screenings. Shortly after the 2011 festival, SIFF moved its operations to the SIFF Film Center on the Seattle Center campus; the Film Center includes a 90-seat multi-use theater, multi-media classroom, exhibition spaces and offices for SIFF and the Film School.
In October 2011, SIFF Cinema moved from McCaw Hall to its current location in the Uptown Theater. SIFF utilizes all three of the Uptown's three screens for year-round programming. SIFF has year round programming for four screens in Seattle. In May 2014 it was announced that SIFF had purchased the Uptown Theater, would be leasing and renovating the Egyptian Theater from Seattle Central College. Since 1985, the Seattle International Film Festival has awarded the Golden Space Needle award each year to the festival's most popular movie. Ballots are cast by audience members at the end of each movie. Previous winners of the Golden Space Needle include Whale Rider for 2003, Trainspotting for 1996, Kiss of the Spider Woman for 1985 and Boyhood for 2015, the latter two being the only films to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture and win the Golden Space Needle. Among the films that have received North American or world premieres at SIFF are: Alien – Ridley Scott Arafat, My Brother – Rashid Masharawi Banlieue 13 – Pierre Morel Burning in the Wind – Silvio Soldoni Cafe Society – Woody Allen Creature – Parris Patton Ghost World – Terry Zwigoff I Murder Seriously – Antonio Urrutia Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean – Matthew Mishory Last Days – Gus Van Sant Mars – Anna Melikian Mongolian Ping Pong – Ning Hao Monster House – Gil Kenan Nate Dogg – Thomas Farone PTU – Johnny To Time Trap – Mark Dennis & Ben Foster Tomorrow's Weather – Jerzy Stuhr List of film awards Official website Official SIFF Flickr Page SIFF celebrates 30 years of movie
You Don't Love Me (No, No, No)
"You Don't Love Me" is a song by Jamaican recording artist Dawn Penn from her debut studio album, No, No, No. The song's lyrics are credited to Penn, Bo Diddley and Willie Cobbs, production was handled by Steely & Clevie. Penn recorded a song in 1967 called "You Don't Love Me", which incorporates elements of the music and lyrics of Cobbs' 1960 song "You Don't Love Me"; the Cobbs song was, in turn, based on Diddley's 1955 song "She's Fine, She's Mine". Thus, both are credited as songwriters on Penn's recording. In 1994, after a 17-year break from the music industry, she re-recorded a dancehall version of the song retitled "You Don't Love Me". Penn's 1994 version of the song became a commercial success worldwide. In the United Kingdom, it peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart; the song reached the top 20 in Austria and Switzerland, the top 40 in the Netherlands and New Zealand. In the United States, the single charted at number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and at number 42 on the Hot R&B Singles chart.
Multiple recording artists have performed cover versions and sampled "You Don't Love Me" in their own works. Barbadian singer Rihanna remade the song for her debut studio album, Music of the Sun, American entertainer Beyoncé performed the song on her I Am... World Tour concert tour. In Jamaica in 1967, Penn recorded a song titled "You Don't Love Me", which "she first sang for Studio One, although the song itself originated in the American south, courtesy of R&B singer Willie Cobbs". Cobb himself had based his song on blues singer Bo Diddley's 1955 recording "She's Fine, She's Mine". Penn's cover of Cobb's song was recorded at Kingston's Studio One by influential producer Coxsone Dodd. Dodd, who had lived for a while in the United States, imported American rhythm and blues records to play for his sound system entertainment businesses. Penn's song used lyrical and melodic elements of Cobbs' song, but was performed in the emerging rocksteady style – a precursor to reggae, it starts out with a drum roll, "then a chugging bass line kicks in and Penn's dreamy voice wails": No no no, you don't love me and I know now'Cause you left me baby, I got no place to go now...
Dawn Penn's "You Don't Love Me" was successful in Jamaica. She recorded some other songs due to the positive feedback and reviews of "You Don't Love Me", such as "Blue Yes Blue" and a reggae cover version of Scottish singer Lulu's "To Sir with Love". Despite her initial success, Penn decided to take a break from singing. In the late 1980s, after working for banks, accountant agencies, airlines, she returned to Jamaica in the hopes of reviving her career. In the early 1990s, she re-recorded a version of "You Don't Love Me" with the new title "You Don't Love Me"; the noted Jamaican production team Steely & Clevie produced it and it featured an updated dancehall arrangement. Songwriting is credited to Penn and Diddley. Billboard wrote about the song: "Penn's sultry vocal presence on this sailing memorable dancehall jam belies the pensive nature of the song's story of lost love. An easy-paced groove chugs along with a hip-hop-ish vibe that could prove accessible to crossover and urban formats."Music & Media wrote: "Nutty dreadlocks where art thou?
Is real reggae still being made, with all those pale-faced pretenders around? Yes here, with all the dub production gadgets and all."Charles Aaron from Spin said: "Producers Steely and Clevie's quirked-up remake of the 1967 reggae classic made my speakers rumble and swoon when a radio DJ wised up. Penn's mesmerizing voice plea is so precise and self-possessed that you figure she'll be fine whether her baby asks her to get down on her knees and pray or not. Inspiration for Luscious Jackson's masterfully strokin' "Daughters of the Kaos."In 2005 Blender put "You Don't Love Me" at 186th place on their list of 500 Greatest Songs Since You Were Born. They wrote: "...dancehall producers Steely & Clevie polished her signature tune into her global comeback hit, wrapping Penn's heartbroken desperation in the sound of a lazy summer's afternoon. Emotional masochism never sounded so sweet." In the United States, "You Don't Love Me" peaked at number 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It peaked at number 42 on the Hot R&B Singles chart, number 41 on the Hot R&B Airplay chart, number 45 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart.
In the Flanders region of Belgium, "You Don't Love Me" debuted at number 44 on the chart week of 23 July 1994, peaked at number eight in its eighth week. The song placed within the top 20 in Austria and Switzerland, peaking at numbers 13 and 17, respectively. "You Don't Love Me" reached number 25 in New Zealand and number 38 in the Netherlands, peaked at number 41 in both France and Germany. In the United Kingdom, the song debuted at number nine on the UK Singles Chart during the week of 11 June 1994 peaking at number three and remaining in the position for two consecutive weeks. CD maxi single"You Don't Love Me" – 4:35 "You Don't Love Me" – 3:02 "You Don't Love Me" – 3:19 "You Don't Love Me" – 5:13 "You Don't Love Me" – 6:07Digital download"You Don't Love Me" – 4:37 In 1994, the French electronic music band Melaaz released a cover version titled "Non, Non" with French lyrics; the track contains audio samples from Penn's original 1967 recording of "You Don't Love Me."
