Just a few minutes ago I came across a trailer for a movie coming out on the 30th of  this month. This movie didn’t catch my attention by showing me cool explosives are out-of-this-world special effects. No, it was none of that. What stood out to me was the skinny boy in wiry glasses and a look of paranoia on his face. No, it’s not Harry Potter.

So here it is.

A new found respect for 50 cent.

Newsroom with Alex Pena

Hip-hop star Curtis Jackson, more commonly known as “50 cent,” teamed up with the World Food Program (WFP) on Wednesday to get a glimpse into the fight against hunger in Somalia, which is often referred to as the most dangerous country in the world.

Jackson took a flight to Dolow, Somalia, along the southern border region with Kenya. That’s where he witnessed thousands of women and children who have fled their homes to avoid drought and conflict.

Showing love for Grouplove.

Seeing as I did a review for Grouplove, I feel that I should post a couple of videos displaying their talent. After viewing the video I would highly suggest you go and look them up; maybe go and read my review.

Social Media Assignment

While it does seem to be taking a bit of time to slowly build my audience I feel like I am meeting my goal for the social media assignment. Going into this assignment I think that my thoughts were that I would be gaining a readership in no time. But to my dismay I found that total opposite. I didn’t find people falling head over heels for my pieces and I had to advertise my stories to get people to read them.  Doing this assignment has shown me that I do need to work a lot harder to get an audience.

Welcome to my corner of Cyberspace.

This is obviously my WordPress site. My goal for creating this site is not only to pass my class but also to get my work out there. I hope to reach an audience of music lovers. Excuse the very naked appearance of my blog but it will be getting better as I get a handle on all of this new technology. But for right now take a look around and if you’re really curious you can visit my Facebook page and twitter account. Heck, you can go and follow/like. The links are on my about page.
