Justin Bieber has Lego hair


Many celebrities have attempted it.  One manchild has perfected it.  Ladies and gentlemen…Justin Bieber has amazing Lego hair.

Look at it...his head is like a dipped cone from Dairy Queen. A perfectly molded shell of hair.

Justin Bieber has done what Zac Effron, Pete Wentz, and the entire Kennedy family failed to do.  Justin Bieber has transformed this hideous hairstyle into a mainstream pop culture phenomenon.  While the cut is annoying and awful, not since the actual Lego people has this hairstyle been pulled off so effortlessly.

The “Bieber Cap” has attracted a lot of celebrity attention recently.  A few of these celebrities have even tried to sport this questionable look, including:

New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady.

Close to perfection, however Tammy...I mean Tom, falls just a little bit short on the execution.

 

Juno star, Ellen Page

Other than the slight flaw in the hair, I really don't see the difference between Bieber and Page. They should date.

 

Friends star, David Schwimmer

Nice try Ross. It's like he's attempting the "Bieber Cap" and Farrah Fawcett feather hair all at once.

 

The Beatles

John, Ringo and Paul almost have it. George is way off. This is clearly a case of "Beatles did it first, Bieber did it best".

 

ABC News Anchor, Ted Koppel

Wow...he's old.

I have nothing else to offer you on the subject, and I am not trying to add to the growing “Bieber Fever”.  I just thought I’d bring this to your attention so that you can start searching for “Bieber Cap” sightings of your own.  Once again, Justin Bieber has Lego hair.  Thoughts?

Also, if you notice the “Bieber Cap” on any other celebrities…please let me know.  Please know that the official term for this Lego-like hairstyle is indeed the “Bieber Cap”.  You heard it here first, and yes, you can use it.  If you’ve heard it elsewhere then tell me and I’ll see if I care or not.

Jimmy Kimmel…The Show Must Go On!


This is pretty cool. I’m not sure what most Live TV shows would do in this situation, but my best guess is that they would just scrap the whole thing and start fresh the next day. Last night, Jimmy Kimmel was dealing with power outage issues that kept them from being able to broadcast the show as they normally do. Not to be defeated, Kimmel decided he would broadcast the show from his laptop. I’ve read a few articles today saying that this will start a new trend and a few “copycats”…I say, not so much. It worked well for him last night, but I don’t see this as becoming a regular thing.

A few weeks ago, Jimmy Fallon did a thing where you could “Watch Jimmy With Jimmy.” Basically what he did was devise a way for fans to go online and watch Jimmy watch his own show. His show is not taped live, so he has the power to do this. Kind of similar to the Kimmel situation…but mostly not.

The biggest surprise to me is how well his audience and guests reacted to the unorthodox taping. I work with a lot of musicians and I don’t know many that would have agreed to do what his musical guest, Dierks Bentley, did last night. Instead of taking the “diva” route, they stripped the whole thing down and did an acoustic performance in front of the laptop camera.

In all…thumbs up to Kimmel for not letting his fans down. I’m not a regular watcher of the show, but I just might have to become one. I’m loyal to shows that treat their fans well, and he seems to do a great job of that.

Elvis: A New Adventure


So last night I met someone who is, quite possibly, the most interesting person I have ever met. That’s your teaser…now you have to read. I’ve got you hooked. I’m tricky like that. Anyway, the company I work for charters cruise ships and produces music festivals on them.
At the moment, I am sitting in the Tampa International Airport making sure the artists flying in get on the correct shuttle to the artist hotel. These however are a different brand of artists from what I’m used to working with. Why??? Because this is The Elvis Cruise. Every person I have met so far has either known Elvis, played with Elvis, or is an Elvis tribute artist. In the past two days I have met one of Elvis’ best friends, his old backing band (of which two members are in the Rock N’ Roll Hall-Of-Fame), his old music director, and some of his female movie co-stars…just to name a few. Now I have to say I do not know a whole lot about the life and music of Elvis, but over the next four days I will get to experience it second-hand…because first-hand is not possible…obviously.
Anyway, like I said, last night I met the most interesting man in the world. No, not the Dos Equis guy…but a man by the name of (Anonymous). I would list his name, but I don’t want this to pop up on Google everytime someone hits his name…much respect…so if you wanna know the name, do your homework. Keeping on…he was one of Elvis’ best friends and even worked for him for a few years. He was telling us stories last night about when he used to tour manage The Beach Boys and Billy Joel. He even once hung out with The Beatles. He has a book out that I plan on reading but his stories alone just blew my mind. He has worked with so many legends (even Diana Ross) and knowing The Beatles is enough to make you want to wet yourself on purpose. If this man is any indication of who I will meet during this trip then I’m in for a treat. A tasty, low-fat (gotta watch the figure), musical treat.

More to come…unless the ship sinks…if that happens…then Bye.

311: Independence Day


Last weekend, Graff and I went to the 311 show in Atlanta at Lakewood Amphitheater. I got to spend my 4th of July with my favorite band while listening to my favorite music. They played a lot of songs off of their new album, which I normally hate when bands do that. I didn’t mind at all this time. Their new album “Uplifter” is incredible. 311 has always been my absolute favorite band, and always will be. They have been around for almost 20 years now making great music with messages of positivity.

I was really surprised about the merchandise at the show…it was sooo cheap! The shirt designs were awesome this year and were only $25 each…which is great for concert shirts. Wristbands and sticker packs were $5 each…can’t beat it. Overall it was an amazing show. The setlist was as follows:
1. Never Ending Summer (New Song)2. Beautiful Disaster3. All Mixed Up4. Mix It Up (New Song)5. Come Original6. It’s Alright (New Song)7. Freeze Time8. Daisy Cutter (New Song)9. Amber10. Applied Science11. Something Out Of Nothing (New Song)12. Beyond The Gray Sky13. I Like The Way (New Song)14. Homebrew15. Hey You (New Song)16. India Ink (New Song)17. What Was I Thinking18. Jackpot (New Song)19. Creatures (For A While)e:20. Omaha Stylee21. Do You Right/Don’t Stay Home/Hive (Mash-Up)22. Down
So in all they played 9 songs off the new album…awesome. And of course they ended the evening with fireworks, being that it was the 4th and all.  


Calvin Klein: Obsession (Note: This has NOTHING to do with cologne)


I’ve been thinking alot lately about where I really want to be and where I want to go in my life.  I love music, that is no secret.  I really would love to be able to make a living playing and recording music.  That would ultimately make me the happiest person I could possibly be.  Whether or not that ever gets to happen, I will not know until it does, or doesn’t.  That is where I want to be in my life though.  I don’t see me ever giving up on that goal.  

In the past 6 months, music has taken me to more places than I ever thought I’d go in my entire life.  Out of all of the places I have been in the past 6 months, California tops all of them.  Since returning from there, for some reason I have become so enamored with the thought of living the California lifestyle.  I was out in the LA area for 2 days before the Mayercraft Carrier cruise and 1 day after the cruise.  I spent time in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Burbank, and other cities.  I loved the whole experience.  I remember passing by a high school right outside of Long Beach where some kids were having baseball practice after school.  At that moment I was picturing what it would have been like to grow up in this place…and thinking what kind of person I would have become compared to what I am now.  There’s no way of telling, but it was still cool to imagine.  
I can’t wait to go back to California.  I’m trying to get the band I’m in, Sunset Love Affair, out there soon.  I’m looking into getting us a gig at the Whiskey A Go Go.  That place is legendary…and would definitely be a highlight of my life as well as the other guys in the band.  I think our music would do well out in California.  It’s just a shame we all live 3000 miles away.  I guess that’s what touring is for.  I really hope we can make it out to play in LA/Hollywood though because I know the other band members would love it there just as much, if not more, than I do.
I think I would enjoy living out there someday.  It has everything nearby that is important to me: a beach, a city, sports teams, music, diversity, and it’s only a 5-6 hour plane ride from Atlanta if I ever needed to come back.  Maybe one day it will happen.  Or maybe I’ll go back to LA so many times that I grow to hate it…then I’ll have to find another city to become obsessed with…so be on the lookout Cheyenne, Wyoming!!!
