Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes) “One At A Time”

December 1, 2009  |  Hip Hop, Inspiration  |  Leave A Comment

This is Travis’ new single- released for World Aids Day- and the proceeds from it are going to MTV’s Staying Alive campaign. The track was inspired by the Gym Class Heroes frontman’s trip around the world to visit MTV’s HIV/Aids projects. Earlier this year Travis and an MTV crew traveled to South Africa, India and The Philippines to find out about the work done around the world to prevent the spread of the disease.

The Music of Entourage- Season 6

November 23, 2009  |  Inspiration  |  2 Comments

Over the weekend Scott Vener (music supervisor for Entourage) made the music he’s featured on the show available for free download on his site.

I’m surprised they haven’t gone the route of doing a soundtrack but thanks to Scott we still get to enjoy it this way.

Crazy sight. A whole lot of birds [the video says 300,000 but how would they know...] create a black cloud on the side of a highway in Denmark. If only us human beings could work in unison like that more…

The folks from Niwota Studios had some fun with their intervalometer (aka fancy camera stuff) last summer and made this amazing ode to our hometown of Ottawa, Canada.

U2 & Jay-Z Live

U2′s Sunday Bloody Sunday was already an incredible song but when Jay-Z came out for this performance of it at the EMA’s yesterday- new life was breathed into it and Jay chose to use the moment to rhyme about something significant. Clap for him.

I appreciate when a woman embraces her sexuality…this behind the scenes footage is glorious!

She’s not just eye candy though. Paula is also a phenomenal actress who stars in the new movie Precious that I highly recommend you check out this weekend.

Working on Obama’s campaign was one of the best things I’ve ever done. The collective effort of all the people who made a difference was truly revolutionary and HBO made a documentary about it. This trailer for it is great- especially that kid at the phone bank!
