Ukrops 10k Run

March 27, 2010 at 6:15 pm (art, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I was out in the crowds running this morning for the Ukrops monument 10k.  I didn’t really prepare like I should have, but I ran about 3miles and walked in between.  I think I did pretty good.

I was wearing a q94 shirt I made to advertise my commercial so as I ran by people yelled out Q94! I thought that was awesome.  I plan to run next year now in costume, this was my first time running at all.  All the costumes were awesome.  There were Ompa Lumpahs, totoyas, darts, Jedi, a little of everything. I might do something from  the SNL cowbell skit. There was a lot of cowbell out there.

Seeing that it was freezing I had to wear a whole bunches of shirts under the T-shirt.  I also wore shorts with pink tights, knee high socks and legwarmers.  Unfortunately I only took pics of my shirt…so here’s my shirt:

Too bad Q94 wasn’t out there to see it.  Every other Richmond station seemed to be out there. With 35,000 people running there were a lot of people out there.  If I was Q94 I would have been there. I think most people just thought I really love Q94, which I do, but I was mostly trying to advertise my commercial.  Btw you can vote for it at http://www.q94radio.com/pages/commercialvoting.html.  I’m contestant #5, please vote.

Trying to beat the system

March 24, 2010 at 7:03 am (art, commercial, music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I seriously don’t know what to do to advertise anymore except to go all out freaking crazy, because everything always turns out to be a popularity contest or a “who’s crazier” type of thing. Popularity online is basically whose got the most connections, but it could also be that someone knows how to beat the system, because they know the system.  Unfortunately I’m like the jester who decided to take on a real job.  I don’t know what I’m doing and I’m just juggling different things different ways until I find what works.  Therefore I’m struggling like a fool on a fool’s errand in the pursuit of happiness.

I entered a commercial contest for q94 and I’m struggling to figure it all out.   Please vote at http://www.q94radio.com/pages/commercialvoting.html

See the Pursuit of happiness in a commercial. It might be sad that life’s come to that, but its best not to cry over spilled milk.

Tune into the Party!

March 22, 2010 at 9:33 am (art, commercial) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is a commercial I made for the Q94 Create the next commercial contest.  It took forever to make this commerical.  I had from the end of February, when I found out about the contest, to mid March to create a commercial on my own which I’ve never done before.  I took me a while to figure out what to do.  I have barely any experience doing any of this except the drawing part.  And I didn’t know if I could actually use hit music so I made my own and you can probably tell I’ve never done that before. 

You can vote here for the winnerhttp://www.q94radio.com/pages/commercialvoting.html.  I’m contestant #5 but their not showing my vid right now.  Argg…The winner gets their commercial aired on TV in the Richmond area and may get the chance to meet a Q94 artist and see them make their next music video.  I know who I would pick if I won and if she was on the list, Lady Gaga.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to see her make her next video? Of course if I won, got there and fainted I don’t think I would be seeing much of anything.

Yacht I bet you never heard of them.

September 30, 2009 at 7:15 pm (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I heard about the group yacht by looking through an issue of Rolling Stones, the one explaining why the Beatles broke up.  There were a lot of other bands in there that I didn’t look up, but I thought Yacht looked interesting.  They were number 8 on college radio top 10 albums.  College radio usually has a lot of off beat stuff which is something that Yacht is, off beat.  It was the description that made me look them up.  “This dance rock crew release its new album-packed with rubbery synths and Nintendo bloops” 

My favorite of their songs are Psychic City (Voodoo City) and Summer Song.  Both of the music videos feature actors that look somewhat similar to the actual band members.  Psychic city shows yin and yang with the female in black representing voodoo and the male in white representing Catholism who both battle and find love .  Summer song pokes fun at making music videos without a budget.  I crack up everytime I see it.

What do you think about this band?  Good or too weird?

Out of Control Sampling

June 2, 2009 at 7:46 pm (music) (, , , , , , , , , , )

There’s out of the control sampling on the radio these days sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.  There’s goodbye by Kristina Debarge that samples Na na na na hey hey hey goodbye.  I actually like this song.  The sample enhanced the meaning of the song and in general improved it.

 

Then there’s Sugar by Flo Rida that samples I’m blue (da ba dee) that kind of reminded me of Echo and the Bunnymen’s Lips like Sugar.  I thought the song was strange and uninventive.  I think that if your going to sample someone’s music use it effectively and don’t copy the song or combine other musicians songs with it, because that is uninventive.  Not to mention that Flo Rida has already used you spin me round in his song Right Round.  Can he think of a song completely on his own?

That was so wrong Jamie

April 14, 2009 at 3:30 am (rant) (, , , )

Jamie Foxx said some horrible things about Miley Cyrus.  I suppose it was in response to her saying she would destroy Radiohead for ignoring her.  But that doesn’t give a grown man the right to say such things about her.  Those comments were just downright mean.   I’m not a Miley Cyrus fan, but I can say that adults should not say things like that about kids.  The girl isn’t even 18 and he’s talking about her like that… eww…Jamie you upset me.  You sounded just like a kid, but you’re not.  Atleast when Miley says or does stupid things and acts childish, its understandable, because she’s not grown, and sometimes kids do stuff like that.  When adults do and say things like that it comes off as beyond stupid.  You should know better.
