Beat it and the beat goes on!!

As the days go on after the tragic and sudden death of Michael Jackson, it just amazes me of the rhetoric and the spectacle that some are making in the memory of the icon or family member as Janet his sister states.

Here is Janet Jackson speaking about her brother at last nights BET awards .

and the beat goes on………

Some parts of this I really don’t like my main thought was is this a father in mourning? I do realize that different people mourn differently but my gut says that you don’t talk about what you are promoting when you are talking about the passing of your family member especially your child.

One thing is for sure this is not the end with second autopsies and the grandmother trying to get custody of the children and the estate, I hope this doesn’t get messy.
My biggest concern is for the children. Michael will be remembered but it is the children that are his legacy and the nuturing and proper care/treament of them is utmost essential.

Farewell to an icon

Ed McMahon has died last night at the age of 86.  Better know as Johnny Carson sidekick on the Tonight Show .  I remember a few shows as a kid but have been more acquainted with him as an a adult when he had his show Star Search and TV Blobbers, they still make me laugh and are quite entertaining.

Music before his time!

Quinn Sullivan plays music before his time. This kid has a gift from God. Quinn who is 10 years old, plays the guitar with a B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Eric Clapton style.

When I read this article I said okay what kid is the media trying to exploiting now?! After listening and watching the video I was dumbfounded. Wow this kid is prodigy. How remarkable and profoundly cool! It’s really nice to see something positive about kids in the news media for a change.

His dad I am sure that he is just as awe struck and proud of his son. He says he gets emotional when he hears Quinn playing music before his time because he doesn’t know where it is coming from.


Well I know and it truly is a God given gift. Quinn has something special and he can even carry a tune look out music world this 10 year old kid is going to move the earth. He will effects lives in some way through his music this kid is one to watch.

He has already played with the greats, B.B. King, Buddy Guy appeared on Oprah and Ellen. He has played shows in Hampton Beach, N.H., Austin, Texas, and Chicago; he will also travel to Nashville to cut tracks for an album with songwriter/record producer Tom Hambridge.

No this is more like it and let’s have more of this more often gosh darn it!!! WTG Quinn dude.

The New Year’s Resolutions of the Stars

Have you made your New Years resolution yet? Do you even believe in New Years resolutions?

Well, just to share with you some celebs do. Just what do these star icons consider a resolution?

I thought some of these were quite interesting and yes some odd but it’s all about one’s perception I suppose. It would have been nice to see one of these celebs include in their resolution something about world peace or helping people in need.

Could that just a bit too much to chew on, ya think?

Can you Change! ?!

I was checking out my Facebook account and came across the video section and just had to post this video by Kate Edmondson.

How appropriate for the times these days!
ENJOY!
