"Rock and roll is the answer" music video!

I've been sitting on an idea for the past couple of days on how to pay tribute to Joey Ramone this year for his birthday, along with something that will commemorate his new album coming out. Obviously, I am totally in love with the new song "Rock and roll is the answer." And I think I have come up with the perfect idea. The best part is, it can be from ALL of us!

Deadline: MONDAY MAY 15TH. I want to get together a bunch of video footage of Ramones and Rock and roll fans singing "Rock and roll is the answer" on video. Wear your Ramones or rock and roll shirt, and I will edit them all together into a video tribute for Joey Ramone and post it on Youtube!

If you want to participate, here's what I need from you! PLEASE READ:
  • Send me video footage of yourself and your friends, dressed in your Ramones or rock and roll gear singing "Rock and roll is the answer." Feel free to get creative and air guitar or whatever feels fun. Just think about Joey! The more footage you can give me the better, this gives me more to work with. The whole song would be ideal so I can get the best of us all on the cutting room floor. Show your love for rock and roll and Joey Ramone...because rock and roll IS the answer! 
  • Please have the music playing in the video for me to time the cuts to each person in the song. Try to have it well lit, and wear anything rock or Ramones that you may have. 
  • I will edit out the background noise and singing and just have Joey's song in the video.
  • As far as format goes, any standard format should work. I may be able to convert it if need be. But a WMV file would be best.

I'm going to give every rock and roll fans equal video time. It depends partially on how many submissions I receive. I'm hoping to get together a video tribute from all of us. If you would like to send me your video, please send it to Or check out my Contact page. Please share and Tweet this so we can get as many Ramones fans in on this as possible! The end result will of course be posted for all to see!

We need to talk about this: The Foo Fighters are "AIDS denialists"

Preface: I am a fan of the Foo Fighters' music, so this isn't intended to be a hit piece. I genuinely feel troubled by what I'm about to share with you in this blog entry. I had no idea about this until just days ago.  Recently I saw a video that addressed celebrities with controversial beliefs. The one that stood out to me was Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters being "AIDS denialists" (which I didn't even know was a thing?) aka "HIV Truthers". I immediately had to look into this because it sounded just too crazy to be real (and you should ALWAYS be skeptical of things you hear and do. your. research.) An article that I felt was very thorough on the topic was " Foo Fighters, HIV Deniers " "Maggiore’s message has apparently penetrated the minds of at least some Foo aficionados. She says she has heard from many Foo fans since the show — one of whom, she says, now works at the Alive and Well office.  “AIDS is a toxic disease caused

The Labyrinth audience participation and prop list

   This is an audience participation guide for Jim Henson's “Labyrinth” movie from 1986.   This guide is similar to the Rocky Horror Picture Show participation and prop list . Because the film is different and PG rated, some rules differ. An audience participation guide is similar to a drinking game sans the alcohol. Certain events trigger certain phrases or fun activities to make the movie more fun and interactive. The RHPS guide is usually done alongside a live performance of Rocky Horror in front of the screen, but this guide isn't ( yet! ) adapted for that. This guide was created after watching the Labyirnth and Rocky Horror Picture Show several times, including studying RHPS guides. --------------------------------------------- The Labyrinth guide is still a work in progress , if you have comments of idea on how to improve this please feel free to contact me --------------------------------------------- Labyrinth costumes and attire: Jar

The album art of Tommy by Mike McInnerney

 People often ask me what my favorite album is. Without much thought I am able to answer them. The Who's 1969 album "Tommy" is my favorite record of all time. The album artwork also happens to be my favorite. Recently I was thinking about the album and how it affected me in my life. I decided to look up the Tommy album art and was surprised that I was unable to find any of it. I could find the cover, but never all the album art inside. The Tommy CD comes with a booklet with lyrics and a series of different illustrations. But they weren't on the internet.   So this blog will be changing that! I just took out my CD booklet and scanned all the artwork. There are two versions of the cover, one featuring small images of their faces inserted into the gaps in the central sphere. The other is just the original work. Executives at The Who's record label insisted on having the band members pictured on the cover, so that's why there are two covers. Pete Townshend c
