Music Festivals Ban Selfie Sticks

festival

Anyone who has been to a music festival knows maintaining personal space is not an option. Trust me I can tell you from personal experiences where I have gotten shoved, walked on almost, and thrown sideways thanks to the people fighting next to me. Like seriously can’t we just enjoy the damn music?

Well speaking of getting your personal space invaded by idiots, this summer’s most highly anticipated music festivals are taking a stand against selfie sticks. Both Coachella and Lollapalooza are banning selfie sticks and other GoPro attachments. Australia’s Soundwave Festival and several UK music venues including the O2 Arena, SSE Wembley Arena and O2 Academy Brixton have also joined in agaisn’t selfie sticks.

festival

Too bad they won’t do the same at theme parks here in Orlando. Seriously every five steps there is someone with a selfie stick stopping in the middle of your pathway taking a group selfie….wait for it… vacation groups of 30 or more. Yup! So if you are planning on going to any of these huge music festivals make sure to read what you are allowed in and time to take your old school camera and selfies. Although you can choose to actually pay attention for your money’s worth to every performance that hits the stage instead of taking photos of your flower crown and Kylie Jenner’s lips.

Listen I love selfie sticks when I am with a group of friends hanging out but a couple of minutes not as a whole day thing. Now I love the idea of having a selfie stick or a GoPro for concerts and festivals if you are really short like me and you can’t see crap. But at the same time I understand how annoyed I get when I have someone in front or behind me with a selfie stick in small amount of personal space. I feel invaded and with the amount of heat we get here in Orlando on the summer time I would hate to be in a music festival with sweaty people touching my skin as they take a selfie. Imagine trying to enjoy a performance by Hozier or Fall Out Boy and have someone in front of you with a selfie stick in the middle of your favorite performances not letting you enjoy watching your singers or bands. I would and will throw a fit with how expensive these tickets are, are you kidding?  And the reasoning for this action :selfie sticks obscured the view for other people in the crowd, noting the increased amount of sticks in the crowd in music festivals. Like some people like to call them selfish sticks.  Because they make you take up a lot more space in a crowded place than you should invading other people’s personal space.

What are your thoughts?

[LISTEN TO THIS] London Grammar

16/03/3015

London Grammar is a British band leaded by vocals from Hannah Reid, keyboard Dot Major and guitarist Dan Rothman. The band’s sound comes off as secretiveness, quietly dramatic, and almost haunting very easily compared to Florence and The Machine.  Hannah’s strong vocals are full of power yet gentle enough to make you feel the power behind each word of their lyrics.  Their tracks are as song-like as they are showcases for gentle digital rhythms. Their songs are based on the raw emotions of life experiences collaborated by all three band members. Their album “If You Wait” was released September 10, 2013 in the .U.S.A. and it debuted at number two the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 33,130 copies. Meanwhile in 2015 it peaked at 91 in the .U.S. Billboard.

Oscars 2015 – My Favorite Moments

Neil Patrick Harris hosted the Oscars 2015 and it the opening number couldn’t have been better! A night dedicated to films, cast, crew, artistry, design, music, and more. A night full of emotion, excitement, passion, and dedication from the best in the industry.  My favorite moments from this year’s show is in no particular order.

intro

When first-time nominee Graham Moore won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on the film “The Imitation Game”, he took to the stage and not only did he opened up to a very dark time of his past when he wanted to committ suicide but he also pledge for those who are still looking for their place in this world. He knew how to use to this huge platform and his moment to touch base on such important topics like suicide, depression, and acceptance.

anigif_enhanced-30687-1424670314-6anigif_original-grid-image-2389-1424672250-15

Eddie Redmayne’s win for Best Actor for his work on the film “The Theory of Everything”. Now that is what I call a well deserved and best reaction winning moment. His dedication in order to prepare himself for this movie was months of studying, training, and learning about ALS, from what the caregiver, patient, and medical perspectives.  He contacted Queen Square Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases in London where a constultant took him through the various diagnoses and stages of this disease.  *ALS is Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis often known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

The reactions of Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez to Patricia Arquette’s speech when she accepted her Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in Boyhood, and made a political statement and demanded gender equality. She said: “To every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America.”

anigif_enhanced-buzz-27173-1424714393-27When Lady Gaga paid tribute to Sounds Of Music star Julie Andrews. Her performance definitely showcase Gaga’s ability to sing, perform, and put on a great show just like I have always defended her from the start. Her talent is in impeccable. She was sought crying afterwards backstage after her moving performance.

gagaA beautiful and moving performance by John Legend and Common who performed the Oscar Winning song “Glory” from the film “Selma”. The scenery for their performance was a backdrop of Alabama’s Edmund Pettus Bridge, where hundreds walked across for their right to vote back in 1965. It brought tears to everyone’s eyes including Chris Pine.

anigif_enhanced-24985-1424713659-25anigif_enhanced-19873-1424713661-23

And last but not least Tim McGraw’s performance paying homage to one of the greatest country singers and songwriters Glen Campbell and his family. Glen Campbell wrote this song for his family as soon as he diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. A disease I know too well since I lost two of my grandparents to it. I guess this is why I was more moved by this performance because they lyrics hit straight to my heart. I tried not to cry as I heard the lyrics last night specially when they showed Glen’s family at the end of the performance. His family handpicked Mcgraw to sing this song from the “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me” documentary which follows the farewell tour of Campbell, after his Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

635601366394958759-464046996And also on that note Julianne Moore’s win for Best Actress for her role in “Still Alice” which she suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease in the movie.

HHN 24 in Review

I love when October comes around because that only means one massive thing for me Halloween Horror Nights or as we call it here in Orlando HHN. I was really excited this year because even though they had Walking Dead again, they also had a Halloween Housed based on Michael Myers which is one of my all time favorite classic characters. Unfortunately I had the chance to only go to four out of the eight houses due to the amount of waiting time. I would love to go again so I could experience the other four houses. I love HHN because I love the adrenaline I feel when I walk through the Houses and the Scare Zones to see the amount of creativity and work they put in.

Best GNO

                                    WELCOME to HHN 24 2014 at Universal Studios Orlando, FL. {My OOTD: Black Crop Top Dots, Highwaisted Denim Jeans- Lane Bryant,Black Vans, Red/ Black Plaid Shirt Target, Brown Bag Charlotte Russe, Ray Ban Aviators, 90’s choker Urban Outfitters, and Red Under top Forever 21. Red lips Kate Moss shade 107.}

This year was I was definitely not as impressed as I have been in previous years when it come to the Scare Zones. Honestly, I felt they lacked more actors, and they should have spread the Scare Zones throughout the park.  The Face Off scare zone was very interesting and intriguing it really is a really great photo opportunity area to take selfies,and photos with very unique creatures.

ev2.jpg

                                                             Read the disclaimer before you comment thanks! 🙂 peace!

The Purge scare zone was really cool as far the main actor they had who was dressed in a business suit with a microphone basically inviting you in to the purge and talking to guest and creeping them out. This part was cool because it reminded me of the movie I just wish they had more scare actors in your face making you want to run the opposite ways. The voodoo scare zone was pretty vague, and nothing really scary just a little fog and nothing really worth screaming for.

ev3.jpg

                                                Classic Babes in line ready for the Walking Dead House ❤

Meanwhile, the houses were the main aspect of where Universal used its budget at, as well as the costuming, special effect makeup, and other special effects to make them incredible well at least some of them. From worst to best out of the four houses I went to personally goes like this:

4.) Aliens .V.S. Predators

Pro’s: Awesome Costuming Effects on.

Con’s: Was not scary at all. No one screamed, no one jumped, it was so easy to walk through, annoying exit route having to bend under a little tunnel.

3.) Halloween Michael Myers

Pro’s: It was awesome so many Michael Myers popping out and a surprise ending I won’t ruin,

Con’s: The line of 105 minutes was not worth it honestly though.

2.) From Dusk Till Dawn 

Pro’s: Keeps you jumping and on your toes and very close to the TV version of the show.

Con’s: I wish it would have been a longer walk through or bigger house for this.

1.) Walking Dead: Prison

Pro’s: So amazing from the moment you walk in and out of it. Definitely messes with your head which makes you more vulnerable to the unexpected scare actors, and the makeup effects were pretty darn scary. Walkers everywhere so beware! Definitely the best Walking Dead house so far in HHN.

Con’s: The flashing lights blinded the f*ck out of me and I almost ended up in a cage full of walkers.

The Housed I missed were: Roanoke – Cannibal Colony, Giggles & Gore Inc, Dollhouse of the Damned, and Dracula Untold- Reign of Blood.  😦

Now from my friends point of view who have attended the other four houses they have loved the clown house, and the doll house even better. They say those were pretty scary because the make up effects, and costuming were quite horrifying and they kept popping everywhere. These two houses the time I went had the less wait time so I would say if you want to make two houses that are really quick in time these would be it. I advise that you do Halloween, and Walking Dead first because the wait time are so ridiculous from 105 minutes and up. Obviously the Rocky Horror Picture Show was great, and Bill and Ted’s Experience was not as fun as other years it lacked material, it was only funny because of Nicki Minaj, and Disney’s Frozen as well as their magic band, and the rest was just kind of pushed in your face to make you laugh and it really wasn’t even funny. But the actors were good so I give them that.  If you do go to either HHN24 in Hollywood or Universal Orlando I want to hear from you. I want to know which were you favorite houses, and scare zones. And what did you like least?

Love,

E
