Comicon for Politics

10.13.15 - COMIC-CON FOR POLITICS.


The Los Angeles Convention Center was host to POLITICON, a political geek gathering over the weekend, with appearances by various pundits, would-be politicians, celebrities in the world of policy, and other purveyors of all things politic. It was nearly 100 degrees outside, so unless one was basking by the surf, the air conditioned caverns of LACC were not a bad place to be.

And, a special panel announced during the conference touted a live session with exiled hero/traitor Edward Snowden in a remote feed from Russia. The interview, arranged by FLOOD Magazine, was conducted by THE YES MEN a political comedy team whose corporate-criminal persona exposes institutionalized corruption. So it should have come as no surprise, when the team made a stunning news announcement to the standing only crowd, that President Obama had pardoned Snowden, and he was now a free man. And it should have been equally non-plussing when those Yes Men followed up with an even more stunning revelation that Snowden was making his first appearance on US soil at, none other than, POLITICON!!!!!

Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden

From behind a curtain steps who appeared to be Edward Snowden himself. The crowd gasped, and ruched the stage to snap photos, and get a closer glimpse. Mick Jagger wouldn't have gotten a better rock star reception.

But later, when Snowden appeared on the big screen, his live remote some 45 minutes late, the jig was up.

Edward Snowden

And POLTICON was off and rolling.

CLAY AIKEN speaking on panel "Celebrity Influence in Politics"

 

Snowden, the man not the impostor, had some very interesting things to say. He pointed out, "I'm not an extraordinary individual. I'm no different than anyone else.

Asked why he did what he did, he recalled seeing intelligence that revealed far more surveillance of ordinary people than was being admitted to by government officials. He and his colleagues all knew it.
"What I witnessed...I saw that we had begun violating the Constitution. That was new and novel, and had not been done before...As I saw this, I realized it was not so much about surveillance, it was about Democracy."

Snowden conceded governmental watchdogs were necessary, but preferred the people had a better hand on the "leash".

But it was the testimony of DIA Director James Clapper, before a senate committee, and Senator Wyden from Oregon that set Snowden off. Clapper answered a question from the senator about whether millions of Americans were routinely being surveilled in the negative. And Snowden knew it was a lie. He knew Wyden knew it was a lie. And that was that.

From this grand theater, to a session entitled Michele Bachmann Explains It All. Now we're having fun!

With moderator John Avlon, Michele Bachmann was actually charming, self-effacing, and rather scholarly, in a simple kind of Minnesota way. The hour was very much a treatise on the Constitution, with the former congresswoman and presidential candidate revealing her love of history. As a side note she pitched Broadway,
"Everyone needs to see Hamilton. Best play in years. And get the soundtrack."

Michele Bachmann
Michele Bachmann

She was born a Democrat, as is everyone who is born in Minnesota. Turns out she was born in Iowa, but Democrat nonetheless. She handed out flyers for Jimmy Carter in 1976. She was a Democrat.

But soon after, on a train, reading Gore Vidal, she had an epiphany, and that was all done.

She was booed when repeating her infamous statement about President Obama made on HARDBALL to Chris Matthews, about his anti-American views, but laughed, as if genuinely fired up, "Bring it on. This is remarkable. What a lovely event."

She stressed that the founding fathers designed the Constitution to survive interpretations by imperfect beings, taking the time to admit her imperfections, "I'm the world's biggest sinner." And when she was chortled by the moderator about her no longer being in the congress, and the disarray in the Republican party, a surprisingly likeable Michele Bachmann reminded us that she chose to step down after 8 years because she believes in term limits, and that others in DC should follow, and, that she would have easily won re-election in her district, thank you very much. Crowd applauds. She did explain it all!

The weekend included an impressive lineup of comedians, politicians, and commentators. Black Lives Matter held a session; Ann Coulter signed and sold books; James Carville and Paul Begala reminisced about the War Room; Newt Gingrich posed for selfies in a progressively leaning crowd; Clay Aiken was am expert on a panel about celebrities and races; and, Trevor Noah from The Daily Show, closed the event with a live standup.

It was a fantastic weekend in Los Angeles.

     
Highlights from the Politcon art show.



One of the highlights of Politicon was a one-on-one conversation between Cenk Uygur, the staunchly progressive host of The Young Turks, and Ann Coulter, the controversial conservative pundit.

In a wide ranging conversation in front of a packed, standing room only crowd of more than 1000 (the largest crowd of the weekend) Uygur and Coulter covered everything from women’s rights to vote, the Iraq War, 9/11, immigration policy, and more.

Jane Fonda

10.4.15 - Last Sunday was ladies' night in Santa Barbara, and they all came out to dance! Elizabeth Banks and Diane Lane were in town to fete their friend Jane Fonda.



The Santa Barbara International Film Festival and its Director Roger Durling honored Jane Fonda with their 10th annual Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film at a gala event held at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara. The event kicked off with a pre-reception and red carpet held in the courtyard, where guests mingled and sipped Altos del Plata wines. Following Elizabeth Banks and Diane Lane, Jane Fonda danced onto the red carpet looking stunning in a green Elie Saab jumpsuit.

After dinner, Hennessy’s Paradis Imperial cognac was distributed for a toast. Following the toast, Elizabeth Banks took the stage to thank Jane for her art, activism, and inspiration, calling her a "walking celebration of feminity and power". Banks also cited that while she had watched a reel including all of Fonda's films, she was not embarrassed to say that 9 to 5, which she watched as a seven year old, was her favorite. It made her dream of being a BOSS like Judy Bernly.

Diane Lane shortly followed to present the award to Jane. Saying she was here out of a sincere love for her, Diane thanked her for being the woman who has informed everyone's love with courage and honesty.

This evening of female empowerment concluded with Jane's acceptance of the award. She thanked everyone in attendance as well as Kirk Douglas who had submitted a taped message for Jane that played earlier in the evening. Jane also thanked the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and as an activist herself, lauded the festival for its many year-round charitable programs.

Bleona

9.20.15 - Bleona - ReelGayTV Q&A plus Vevo premiere of "Take You Over"

 

ReelGayTV: Hello Bleona. The first time I saw VLE was in Palm Springs for the White Party, maybe 3 years ago. It was like 90, and scorching, and you came out poolside in a full bear suit, which revealed to a dazzling, sparkly cocktail dress. Quite a fashion statement! Where did you get your sense of style?

Bleona: Ha ha ha! Thank you for the compliments! But what else can you do in a pool party full of gorgeous men? Plus add the fact that no one has heard your name yet? I had to come with an idea to make a statement and put my stamp on it, so they would never forget!!! I love bling. I don't buy anything that is not blingy. Even when i go to Starbucks, I am full-on bling. Fabulous-ity and over the top fashion is a way of living. It's not a one time thing for me.

ReelGayTV: And how do you maintain that stunning body?

Bleona: Uhhhhh - yes lets talk about that. I do have trainers, but to be quite honest, I don't see them 99 % of the time that I'm scheduled. I LOVE good food and I love to eat. I'm not one of those girls that would give up eating. So, after I eat and I reach a point of no return, where things cant be like they were before, I get this crazy discipline to put things back on track. I do juicing for 7 days and my body is back in shape. I juice often,, especially before a big performance. I also love yoga, but ultimately I need to thank my mom and dad for giving me good genes.

ReelGayTV: What food is your guilty pleasure?

Bleona: Carbs … and deserts .. I love cronuts.

ReelGayTV: If we snuck into your house right now, btw, is that in Los Angeles? What would we find in your refrigerator?

Bleona: Just green juice. I try not to keep food in the house, so I'm not tempted to over-eat. So the best idea is to have nothing but green juice. Usually the first part of the day I'm really good, I'll have my coffe and my greens, but when the night comes, carbs are my best friend. But, hey, life is too short to be on a diet. I mean this. We are all people and we all deserve to get pleasure from food on a daily basis. God created each one of us in a different way and we are all beautiful on our own way. I think the magazines have set-up an impossible standard which 99% of the time is not realistic. I don't want to get caught in that circle. I'm actually a real person.

ReelGayTV: Did your parents really send you to school to study finance? How long before you realized 'this is not for me’?

Bleona: I mean can you believe that? My mom was like: “You are not going to be Tra -La -La your whole life. You need to have a brain." I realized this wasn’t for me since they came up with the idea and I'm pretty set on my ways. I had to sneak out of school and do the whole thing my own way.

ReelGayTV: You can speak, and sing in 4 languages, that's pretty special. You have a favorite?

Bleona: I learned German because it was mandatory in my school, plus I have done 80 concerts+ a year in germany and in the rest of Europe, so I had to perfect the language. I love Italian language d though , italy is like my second home .. I love Laura Pausini which is one of the biggest names in italian music and i love her music ..So listening to her album when i was a teenager i needed to know what was the meaning of those beautiful songs , so i had to learn italian ..and again i have many friends in italy and i have a special connection with italy so the language was used very often .. Albanian is my native language, and English of course i did in elementary school and continued till college .

ReelGayTV: How was your experience doing reality television with Euros of Hollywood?

Bleona: It was an interesting experience to film an American reality show and it definitely has raised awareness of who I am, and now I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life , which is releasing my music in the states and make america sing together with me and rock the world ..

ReelGayTV: Will we see more of you on TV?

Bleona: Yes i would love to , why not , if i have an offer why not ..

ReelGayTV: So tell us about the new single, is it part of a whole album release

Bleona: I am not born in American and I wanted to bring an international flavor to my music, which is of course produced by American producers. I want to leave my fingerprint in the music industry. The world has become more global, so the idea was to create a unique sonic blend of American pop music with a global approach that resonates with every culture. Back home, I have always been known as a rebellious entertainer and now in English my music is no different. "Take You Over" is still pop - dance, and it's fun, but there is also a very strong message about female empowerment.

I've just finished shooting the video for the single and it was actually a huge pressure, as I set the bar really high on my videos back home. I always look to ways to bring innovative ideas and to go further with crazy visuals and live performances.

I'm representing high fashion with "Take You Over" and brought Dennis Leopold on board. He is an amazing high fashion photographer and video director with an impressive portfolio starting from Rihanna to J-Lo. We also brought on Jeffrey Kelly as Director of Photography, who has an amazing talent when it comes to camera work and lighting. He worked J-Lo's "Booty" and Beyonce's "Drunk In Love and most of Beyonce's videos on her last album. So - I couldn't resist working with the best team ever on my very first video debut in the U.S. And YES - this is part of an upcoming album which releases in early 2016.

ReelGayTV: You performed the song on "X Factor Albania". Is your "class" really "bigger than your ass"? Cause, that's a lot of class girl.

Bleona: Ha ha ha ha! Are you calling my A$$ big? ( kidding). Yes, definitely, my class is bigger then my A$$. I think this song really describes me as a character. Even when I gain some weight, I still think my class is bigger, as it should be. I'm not fond of non-ethical people.
You really fit well within the dance genre, with your fashion sense and your look. Can we expect more dance tracks on the release in 2016?
Absolutely, this is just the start.

ReelGayTV: And speaking of fashion, you have your own line.

Bleona: I am pop singer. Music and crazy visuals are what I do. This is how I express my self. Because music and fashion go well together, I wanted to further express my ideas on fashion. I am a shoe fanatic and jewelry is my Achilles heel, so the best way to start was with shoes & jewelry on shopbleona.com
Where can people keep up with Bleona?
My instagram @iambleona Twitter @iambleona Facebok Bleona

ReelGayTV: Any live dates scheduled?

Bleona: So far I have a concert end of November in Miami and we are setting up October dates for the US clubs.


ReelGayTV: All the best in all of your endeavors.

Bleona: Thank you for the opportunity! Much Love, Bleona.

7.27.15 - DESERT AIDS PROJECT HOSTS 8TH ANNUAL MID-SUMMER DANCE PARTY

Desert Aids Project serves the Coachella Valley in the areas of HIV specialty services including medical care, food, housing, transportation, counseling, and other vital management for those afflicted with HIV. But they also throw great parties, whether it be a fashion show poolside at one of the many fantastic hotels in the valley; or a formal black tie affair with dinner and entertainment; or as Saturday, a mid-summer dance party, in the midst of the heat in the dead of summer.

The theme this year was a 1950's sock hop, held in the air-conditioned Palm Springs Pavillion, it could have been high school, anywhere USA. Guys had there faded jeans, white tees rolled up with a cigarette pack in the sleeves, and slicked back hair. The "girls" came in poodle skirts and sweaters, or as Olivia Newton John with the blonde locks and the tight black jeans, ala Grease. Olivia, herself, even made a video appearance from Las Vegas, wishing the party-goers a good time and inviting them to see her perform in Sin City. Very impressive.

Lola, the area's resident diva, drag queen made an appearance in a stunning black and white one-piece swimsuit, perfectly accessorized with black and white patterned beach bag, and a swooping, white-ringed black hat that sheltered her face in just the right way. That face needs no covering up, but Lola has her way!

There was even entertainment, with Jazmyn Simone-Echelon performing Fever, and MC Ethylina Canne doing a fantastic drag turn with a '50's medley, backed up by 3 hot "Fonzie" dancers. Choreographer and producer Steven Michael took to the stage for a finale with Jazmyn.

Proceeds went to the great cause that is Desert Aids Project. But more importantly, the night was a good time, as all their events are. Don't miss the next one.

The Google Art Project expands its collection of Street Art imagery from around the world

 

The Google Art Project is working to preserve Street Art and make it available to global fans, anywhere and anytime. The Street Art collection features high resolution images and online exhibitions from museums and organizations around the world. By bringing together a wide variety of global partners, the goal is that everyone can enjoy these artworks long after the paint has faded from the walls.

More than 50 new global partners have curated exhibitions and together provided more than 10,000 high resolution images, enabling street art fans to dive into the hidden details of paintings at the click of a mouse.

The Street Art collection first launched in June of 2014 with 30 global partners and has since doubled the number of images shared on the digital platform. The collection consists of high resolution images of street art from around the world as well as Street View panoramas of select murals.

“When the street is your canvas, the world becomes a gallery for everyone to enjoy. Technology provides a way to preserve these ephemeral artworks and make them available anywhere and anytime. This digital collection of more than 10,000 images, 160 new exhibits and animated GIF-iti art from more than 30 countries around the world brings vibrant street art off the walls to computers, mobile phones and wearables with just an Internet connection." Amit Sood, Head of the Google Art Project.

There are a number of ways to enjoy the collection from a range of devices. All of the images are now available on the new Google Art Project Chrome extension, Chromecast, Android Wear and mobile devices.
