Coachella Did NOT Cause Instagram To Crash

Instagram1

(PCM) Instagram users were in a frenzy this afternoon when the popular social media photo app was down for a few hours with many blaming the influx of Coachella selfies being shared for the issue. Instagram has issued a statement and claims that it was not the Coachella music festival that caused the outage.

The problem according to Instagram was a “feed delivery issue” which appears to be fixed at this time.

From the many tweets that were posted from those attending Coachella, the popular music festival in Indio, Ca, this weekend, you would have thought that the entire world was coming to an end and that Instagram was just another part of the festival.

The very best one came from comedian/actor David Spade which read “Instagram is down.  Does that mean they cancel Coachella? I mean what’s the point of going now. To hear music??”

We can’t believe that … Read the rest…

EDM Ravers Dance To The Benny Hill Theme Song!

EDM-Benny1

(PCM) I have recently come across this absolutely hilarious video that pairs a group of Dutch ravers dancing at the 2013 Awakening Festival with “Yakety Sax” the theme song from “Benny Hill”.

The video was created by Jesse Reinier Nieuwenhuijzen and it is absolutely brilliant. I could not believe that the audio and video were able to synch up so perfectly. It is hilarious.

I am out covering a slew of music festivals throughout the year, many with EDM-dedicated stages. From now on, I am forever going to be stuck with the visual of everyone dancing to the Benny Hill theme song…and I don’t have a problem with that!

School Raises Funds With The “Assistance” Of Justin Bieber Music

Bieber-high-school1(PCM) A school in Seattle, WA is making headlines after school officials came up with quite the interesting way to urge students to donate cash for a school fundraiser.

During all cross-over breaks between classes and lunch periods, “Baby” the hit song from Justin Bieber was blasted over the schools PA system and students were told it would not stop until the school’s goal of $500 was raised.

While this may border on torturous to some, it was a brilliant idea to get the students to donate. Even students who were Bieber fans were tiring of the endless chorus of “Baby, Baby, Baby..ohh!” after awhile. Other students claimed they were about to “go crazy”.

The high school is raising money for a great cause which is Crossover International Academy in Ghana. The money will go toward rebuilding the school, which was destroyed in a 2010 flood, and for food and … Read the rest…

15-yr Old Lip Synced To Queen For Three Years To Create Video

(PCM) Talk about a true dedication to art!   15-yr old Matt Perren spent the last three years creating an amazing time-lapse video set to the Queen song “Don’t Stop Me Now”, where he moved his mouth every day to match the phonemes in the song.

The create the amazing effect showcased in the video, after moving his mouth into position he would then snap a picture and over the course of the three year time period was able to splice them all together to create the finished video.

Genius work for such a young guy!  The technique Perren used has been used in a ton of music video over time, but I believe Perrens’ is the first to take about three years to create.

The Ultimate Quest For Super Stardom….The EGOT!

EGOT1(PCM) Many have attempted but only a select few can say that they have completed the quest for true super stardom and have received the quad-awards that make up an EGOT.

What is an EGOT, you ask? EGOT is an acronym for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony and is used to reference those select individuals that have won all four coveted awards. The acronym was invented by actor Philip Michael Thomas of Miami Vice fame, who had big plans for winning all four awards, despite never being nominated for any thus far. He did receive a People’s Choice Award and was nominated for a Golden Globe, neither of which are part of the EGOT category.  The term further gained popularity when mentioned several times on the hit TV series “30 Rock”.

According to Wikipedia, winning all four awards can be compared to winning the ultimate Grand Slam Of Show Business and … Read the rest…
