Pabllo Vittar

One might be surprised to find out that one of the most famous drag queens at the moment has no relation to the success from RuPaul’s Drag Race. Pabllo Vittar is a Brazilian drag queen who is gaining more popularity by the day. She’s had a lot of success in her native Brazil, appearing on TV shows and releasing a Portuguese version the Major Lazer song “Lean On” entitled “Open Bar”.

The success of the song and her exposure lead to more international attention. Western audiences may recognize Vittar from the Major Lazer song “Sua Cara” which featured Vittar and fellow Brazilian artist Anitta that came out last summer. The collaboration blew up as the music video gained millions views in one day and currently has more than 380 millions views. Vittar has made quick friends with Diplo, working with his group Major Lazer and has collaborated with him for the song “Então Vai” from Vittar’s debut album Via Passar Mal. 

The success of Vittar’s debut album is unprecedented for a drag queen and has resulted in her being signed by a major record label. We can expect a second full length album from Vittar later this year. The album’s singles that recieved video treatment have reached massive success in regards to streams and views.

Third eye: Opened. Chakras: Aligned. Just: Water. After waiting for this day to happen since Never Say Never, I finally got to see Jaden Smith perform live.

I took a lyft to Lincoln Hall around 11 a.m. , made small talk with the driver:

Who are you seeing tonight?”

“Jaden Smith.”

“The karate kid??”

“….Yeah…”

“Strange…”

“…Yeah.”

“So .. uhhh what are you going to watch him do exactly????”

“… um .. perform his music, he raps…lol.”

“The karate kid raps??….I don’t like it.”

The Top 6 Craziest Things That Happened In Avengers: Infinity War

Image result for avengers infinity war

Wow, that was one hell of a movie. I’ll be honest, Superhero fatigue had already set in by the time I sat down in the Theater, but by the time the credits rolled it had been replaced by not only a new respect for the MCU, but also a bunch of new reasons to visit my therapist.

The culmination of ten years of post credit scenes, Avengers: Infinity War finally smashed its way into cinemas last week; earning the praise of both critics and nerds alike. I had the pleasure of seeing it over the weekend, and honestly can’t stop thinking about all of the crazy stuff that happened over the course of its two hour and forty minute runtime. So without further ado, here are the top six wackiest things that happened in Avengers: Infinity War. Why six? The six infinity stones of course! (And because i’m lazy.)

*Spoilers ahead in case that wasn’t clear enough*

A Musical Treasure Discovered

Image result for White Noise Bed album cover
I have too much music.  As problems go, I guess that’s not a bad problem to have.  CD’s sit unlistened to since I just don’t have enough time to get around to playing them.  I don’t have a lot of spare listening time between my regular job, preparation for my show,  and the multitude of TV shows that I try to keep up with before the DVR disc is full.

People send me lots of CD’s for my show, and I listen to as much as I can. That means there is little time in my life to listen to music for pleasure, so CD’s that I have bought usually go unlistened to for some time, usually until I have to check them out for an upcoming show feature.  Such was the case with Santah’s debut album “White Noise Bed.”

I saw Santah live in October of 2011 at The Cubby Bear in Chicago, opening for Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (now knows as JR JR).  I must have enjoyed their set, since I bought a copy of “White Noise Bed”.  Here’s the thing:  If you give me your CD at a show, I am compelled to listen to it ASAP and play the songs that I like on the show.  However, if I buy your CD, it goes into the pile of “music not listened to”, and I will eventually get around to it and then play it on the show if I like it.
