I’m Published!!! :::: Michael Jackson For the Soul: A Fanthology

31 January 2011 at 4:59 pm (Book Reviews, Campaigns, Celebrity, Entertainment, Movies, Music, Raves, Thank You's) (, , , , , , )


Some of you may remember that roughly just over a year ago I was approached by someone on here to publish my written piece on Michael Jackson.

When Michael Jackson passed on June 25, 2009 the entire WORLD mourned and there was a collective gasp of shock. I immediately took to my blog to write about what he meant to me. To my childhood. And what he meant to humanity as a whole.

A bit later a woman by the name of Lorette Luzajic wrote me expressing interest in my piece and wanted to know if I’d be interested in submitting it to a project she was going to be working on. She was compiling a “fanthology” of written works on the late King of Pop by bloggers, writers and fans such as myself.

I was of course, flattered and honoured to be included and told her I would LOVE to be a part of this. On January 9, 2011, I received an email saying the book was finished and ready. I haven’t received my copy as yet, so I can’t do a book review but as soon as I do, I will definitely be doing a write-up. I just wanted to share this with you all so that you may show love and support and purchase your own copy.

The book is available for purchase on Amazon.com. please click >>> here <<< to buy it now! It’s only $20.00 and $1 donations from each book sold will be going to the Kids Help Phone, keeping in spirit with Michael Jackson’s legacy and love for the children of the world.

Thank you, Lorette, for working so diligently to get this book completed. I also  thank you for including me in such a special project. Also, many thanks to Eliza Lo for the beautiful front cover artwork.

We still miss you, Michael. I hope your family and fans will find justice.

G20 Brief Thoughts (Non-Political)

27 June 2010 at 1:30 pm (#Kanyeshrug, Campaigns, Local Events, News, Politics, Rants, Toronto Life, World Issues, WTF!?) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )


I’m not going to sit here and go into what the actual G20 summit is about … I’m gonna say something extremely brief, short, sweet and to the point about what’s been happening in my city of Toronto these past couple of days.

First and foremost: all you idiots that came from far to come and mash up my city need to go back to wherever you came from and mind your own. This shit has gotten out of control. What are you really protesting about? When the first car was set ablaze I said on twitter: “If this unrest continues over the rest of the weekend, how much of it will really be about the G20?” This weekend is just an excuse for SOME people to wreck havoc and cause chaos. GTFO of my city with all that there bullshit. This is embarrassing Toronto. Canadians don’t get down like this. For the ones that do, I’m appalled at the behaviours of the city’s citizens. But at the same time, I’m not surprised either (if that makes any sense).

I’m just happy that so far there have been no major injuries or human casualties because that would just set me over the edge.

In conclusion: here’s a word to the masses that wanna damage Toronto: if you fuck up a Tim Horton’s people will burn you at the stake. Timmy’s is a national treasure. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, SON!

We Are the World 2010

If this wasn’t for Haiti, I wouldn’t be able to support this project. This is horrible. What was QJ thinking!? This song is just not good. There is too much crap in it. I’m sorry. The parts that were good – were REALLY good. For example: Mary J Blige, Pink, Celine, Mary Mary and Jennifer Hudson all shone amidst the bullshit of the autotune, Lil Wayne’s presence, the rappers being isolated, Jamie’s out of place Ray Charles impersonation, and Toni Braxton’s desperate glances at the camera. This is just ridiculous. I feel they tried too hard to make it “current” and “cool”. All they really needed to do was focus on updating a meaningful classic without all the extra bs.

Their hearts were in the right place. But like a person wrote in a forum, they were out of their minds when this was recorded.

I WILL say, keeping Michael Jackson’s parts in there was a good, if not obvious, move.

So Many Donation Rumours

13 January 2010 at 8:34 pm (Campaigns, Life, News, World Issues) (, , , , , , , )


Let me try to put some currently to rest:

1. UPS Shipping Anything Under 50lbs For FREE

I called UPS myself about 2 hours ago and was told NOTHING like this was in place for Canada OR the U.S and just a few minutes ago this statement was put up on UPS’s blog:

The earthquake that hit Haiti yesterday delivered a devastating blow to the island nation. Disasters such as this remind us of our own vulnerability to the forces of nature. At UPS, we’re committed to delivering aid and supporting relief efforts around the world. Through The UPS Foundation, we’re giving $1 million (USD) in cash and in-kind aid to help the people of Haiti.

We’ve also noticed a surge of interest and concern online as people search for ways to help. On Twitter, some have mistakenly shared a rumor that UPS will ship for free any package under 50 lbs. to Haiti. The destruction of roads and communications networks means our own shipping services to Haiti are on hold. Rather than offer free shipping to individual donors, UPS directs its aid through relief agencies. (read more …)

2. Texting Donations – Salvation Army (via Bell Mobility or Rogers)

There are NO formal means set in place for Canadians to donate to Haiti via TEXT MESSAGING. The Salvation army states you can do so here: http://www.salvationarmy.ca/textdonations/ however if you read the very first question it says quite clearly what the money will be used for:

Donations will help The Salvation Army serve more than 1.5 million Canadians each year as the largest non-governmental direct provider of social service. (read more …)

The same can be said for other companies as well.

3. Texting Donations As A Whole (Canadians ONLY)

Canadians looking to donate money to Red Cross disaster relief in Haiti through text messages may want to try other options.

Twitter users are reporting that text-donation campaigns on the social-media website are not applicable in Canada.

One option, where texting the word “Haiti” to 90999 results in a $10 donation to the Red Cross and a matching fee being applied to the user’s cellphone bill, only works in the United States, users reported. (read more…)

***

At this point it’s safe to say that RIGHT now, the only organizations you should trust sending your money to are YELE (Wyclef Jean’s Organization) and The Red Cross.

PLEASE click both names to go to their respective websites! Thank you.
