Cheerleader routine during Gay Games 9 opening ceremony at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on August 9, 2014
Two years ago, I was lucky to experience being a member of the press inside the BBMA 2012 press room. It was an amazing experience that I sticks with me to this day and I knew then like I know now that it will not be the last time that I get the opportunity to cover the Billboard Music Awards. Above are pictures of Natasha Bedingfield, Patent Pending, Gavin Degraw, Carly Rae Jepsen, LMFAO, Eric Benet and Stevie Wonder. These are just a few of the pictures that I took over that weekend of BBMA festivities.
Here recently I’ve got hooked on some vlogs and podcasts. The vloggers that I follow do daily vlogs that keep me interested and coming back everyday to see what’s new in their lives. This is the true reality TV and not the overproduced content you see on cable or the networks.
The first vlog that I follow is Internet Killed TV (CTFxC). Internet Killed TV is all about We the Kings bassist, Charles Trippy and his dogs, Marley and Zoey. Internet Killed TV holds the Guinness World Record for the longest running daily video blog on YouTube. Below is the video that Charles is presented with the record.
Also during his time vlogging, Charles found that he had a brain tumor and has had two surgeries on his brain. Here are those videos:
Last Monday, Charles received good news about the tumor.
The other vlog I follow is Not Adam and Steve, which is about Will and R.J., a couple who moved from Florida to Hollywood. The big reason I follow this vlog is because these two guys have been in relationship for a while and they took the bold step to move all the way across the country for bigger and better things. Here are the latest videos from Will and R.J.
The last thing I follow is The Dinner Party Show, a weekly audio podcast hosted by best selling authors, Christopher Rice and Eric Shaw Quinn. The Dinner Party Show airs every Sunday at 8 PM Eastern/ 5 PM Pacific. It is really hilarious and to listen to it, click the link above or go to their SoundCloud page.
Welcome to a long overdue “Music Videos to Watch.” I have been so busy with work that I have been lax on this blog but anyway here are some videos that I currently repeatedly watch.
Wisin featuring Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin “Adrenalina”: This video is sexy and features one of my celebrity crushes, Ricky Martin, who looks super sexy in this video. There is a Spanglish version of this song under Ricky Martin’s discography on iTunes. In the Spanglish version, Ricky sings the chorus in English.
Lady Gaga “G.U.Y. – An ARTPOP film”: This video is almost 12 minutes long and features four songs by Gaga, “ARTPOP”, “Venus”, “G.U.Y.” and “MANiCURE”. The video was shot at Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California and features cameos of Andy Cohen and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The video is a masterpiece and is worth watching.
Neon Trees “Sleeping With a Friend”: Following the success of their sophomore album, “Picture Show”, Neon Trees are back with their first single off their forthcoming third album, “Pop Psychology”. “Sleeping With a Friend” video has a 80’s vibe to it and lead singer, Tyler Glenn, who recently came out as gay, embraces his inner gayness in this video.
As a movie and music buff, I like to buy soundtracks to movies so I know what music to expect in the movie. In many cases, most of the best songs on soundtracks were not played until the end credits started. If the soundtrack is mostly composed music with one or two songs on the album, the song(s) are definitely going to during the credits. Take, for example, “Love Song for a Vampire” by Annie Lennox was on the “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” soundtrack and it did not play until halfway through the movie’s end credits.
Here are some more examples of end credit songs:
