ChildCry Rings Wall Street’s Opening Bell

ChildCry Opens Wall Street

ChildCry Opens Wall Street

i was thrilled to see members of Times Square Church’s humanitarian mission, ChildCry, present Thursday morning to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. it represented a different perspective toward what we should be focusing our time, energy and money on: helping others. ChildCry feeds thousands of young people in countries around the world through proceeds from offerings by its performing and recording artists.

The Hip Hop TakeOver on WBAI

a good friend of mine who posts on his blog and hosts Kick The Science on NYC station WBAI turned me on to this event in its second year. if you want to break away from the stereotypical bonds of mainstream media and music (especially hip hop), tune in to the live stream of the 15-hour event beginning today, August 30, 2008. check out WBAI’s live stream throughout the week, too.

This Summer’s Blockbuster Movie Theme: It’s Finally Here!

i enjoy films, but i rarely risk my sanity to see popular commercial movies on opening weekend (or opening month, for that matter). this summer, at least four movies will cause me to book tickets well in advance along with other cult-series followers and heath ledger fans. in no particular order, they are:

Film: The Dark Knight

Last seen: Batman Begins 2005

trailers hint at a break-out performance by the late heath ledger along side christian bale. i am really happy to see aaron eckhart in the film as well. he’s an under-rated actor. i would love to see him in more leading roles.

Film: The X-Files: I Want to Believe

Last seen: The X-Files: Fight The Future 1998

i have waited ten years to see the follow up to the first mulder-scully adventure on film. i am curious as to how it will address the way the t.v. show ended. x-file fans should turn out in good numbers.

Film: Sex And The City

Last seen: Final T.V. episode 2004

SATC fans are going to jam up the lines to see this one on opening day. i hope upper west side theaters are prepared!

Film: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Last seen: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade 1989

it’s about time we finally got to see indy crack the whip again. it’s been nearly 20 years! this may be my favorite hero/action movie series of all time. i am sure star wars fans may want to object… notice the operative phrase is “my favorite”, though.

The Guitar Zeros Prefer Red And Yellow Over D Minor.

the guitar zeros

the guitar zeros have taken applications of the popular music game, guitar hero, to another level. members have configured the plastic guitar game controllers to create their own music through computer connections. they actually perform before live audiences. perhaps gibson will reconsider its patent infringement lawsuit against mtv and ea over guitar hero and make nice for the sake of novelty band visionaries worldwide.

wanna rock? check out the guide here.

My Form’s Not Shabby But It Needs Some Work…

gizmo shadow boxes

i thought my dog had some peculiar habits. after watching gizmo, perhaps i should brush up on my shadow boxing skills. i hope mendez, my dog’s feline housemate isn’t watching. oh, and is that southpaw action?

But If You Pine For Public Humiliation and Your Own Angst

get mortified on stage

get mortified enables people to come on stage and read diary entries from their teen years. it is about humor but i am not laughing. my teen years can stay in the past- where they belong. kudos to those of you who can reach back and laugh. just remember to blot out any honorable mentions of those who shared experiences with you but don’t want the details of their role exposed. see the previous post if you need a lecture.

get mortified has a site, but i am not sure they have paid their bill (like i can talk).
