The other best option would be to settle for a matinee during the mid week.

Hannah Montana Concert Tour And The Return Of Jake Ryan

America’s morning was good indeed as Miley Cyrus treated her fans with a liver performance as Hannah Montana on Good Morning America. Hannah Montana is the popular teen rock star leading a double life on the hit Disney Channel original series of the same name. This was one leg of her Summer Concert Series in which the fourteen year old Cyrus performed for the New York crowd at Bryant Park for free. She not only brought smiles to her fans’ faces because of her performance but also because of her announcement of her upcoming 54-city tour this Fall.

Cyrus’ tour will be kicking off on October 18 in St. Louis, and will be featuring songs from her album which was released today. The new album is comprised of two discs–the first CD being Hannah Montana’s second collection of songs while the second CD being Miley Cyrus’ debut album as herself. The first Hannah Montana CD, which was released in October 2006, debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 chart, making it the first soundtrack to do that, and has now reached triple platinum in sales.

Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, her father, was responsible for making “Miley” her nickname. He gave her that nickname, which was short for “smiley”, when she was a child because she was always smiling. Miley’s real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus. She continues to flash that smile in Hannah Montana, where Billy Ray plays her father. Last Sunday, the show’s double-episode featured the return of Jake Ryan (played by Cody Linley), Hannah’s boyfriend, from his four month stint in Romania, where he was filming a movie. Before he left, his scenes with Miley were filled with kisses, and so are scenes of his return. They also revealed secrets to each other, such as that Jake’s real first name is Leslie and that Miley is really Hannah Montana. Jake was able to handle her secret well, and as soon as he got used to it, they continued dating. However, being in the spotlight made Jake act obnoxious, so Miley decided to let him go. In the end, he sent her a red rose with a note apologizing for his behavior. He also admitted that he still needed to grow as a person and that he would, no doubt, keep her secret.

History Of Horror Rap And The Gathering Of The Juggalos

The last eleven festivals all steeped in the underground rap aesthetic have seen everything from riots to helicopters, with performances by artists ranging from the proudly foul horror rap roster of Psychopathic Records to past chart toppers like Vanilla Ice and Ice Cube. The annual Gathering of the Juggalos horror rap music festival has inarguably carved out a unique spot for itself among music festivals around the globe, but its been a long and crazy ride.

Aptly described by Violent J as an annually recurring Juggalo Woodstock, the festival typically features music in the broad vein of underground rap and Rock, though the micro-genre of horror rap fills most of the bill. The horror rap festivals activities span beyond music as well, as it also features wrestling, autograph signings, seminars with the artists, wet T-Shirt contests, enormous bonfires, late night parties and more events catered to fans of underground rap.

Humble Beginnings for Horror Rap Festivalgoers

In 2000, the long-discussed concept of arranging an annual get together for all Horror rap and Juggalo wrestling enthusiasts came to fruition. A modest (by todays standards) 7,000 underground rap fans attended the very first Gathering of the Juggalos, but that doesnt mean it was a calm affair by any stretch of the imagination.

After 300 Juggalos responded to Insane Clown Posses request to join them on stage, the venues management was forced to intervene, ending the night prematurely. Such raucous behavior would become commonplace for all Gathering of the Juggalos horror rap music festivals to come, like in 2002 when so many fans rushed the stage that it neared collapse.

Juggalo Horror Rap Standards

Its no secret that artists who fail to impress the collective horror rap enthusiasts and general Juggalo faithful will face repercussions that range from suffocating boos to physical harassment, but did you know this practice has its roots in 2003s lineup? Thats the year rapper non-underground rap artist Bubba Sparxxx was booed off stage in what was to be the first of many artist-Juggalo confrontations. Its said that the artist to receive the most boos every year is dubbed the Bubba Sparxxx award.

Gathering of the Juggalos Underground Rap Festival Growth

Throughout the mid 2000s, Gathering of the Juggalos and the publics penchant for Horror Rap and underground rap continued to expand, and eventually festival goers were greeted with a host of sideshows like seminars with the artists, Ms. Juggalette and wet T-shirt competitions, and wrestling schools (not to mention mud, oil, and flashlight wrestling matches hosted by Juggalo Championship Wrestling).

In that span of time, the horror rap and underground rap festival has exploded, with an estimated attendance of 20,000 at the 10th annual festival in 2009. This years festival promises to deliver good times for fans of underground rap once again.

How To Build A Professional Composer’s Site

A composer’s website functions in many ways and is the main means of communication with the outside world. A website will serve as a reference for your audience, act as your electronic agent, and store valuable media such as photographs, music excerpts, and information such as your biography for media outlets. It is your online business card and is essential to build your career in the 21st century. Following are several key elements necessary to an effective music composer’s website.

1. Make your site easy to navigate by choosing a clean-cut design which will allow visitors to learn about your music quickly and effectively.

2. Display your activity by posting dates of recent and upcoming performances of your work.

3. Keep an up-to-date catalog of your work online. This allows performers or promoters of music to see if your catalog includes something that interests them.

4. When adding biographical information to your website it is in your interest to provide both full and condensed versions. Often, programs or media outlets prefer a short biography.

5. Post no less than three music excerpts of your work for listeners to demo as easily accessible .mp3s.

6. Huge areas of musical goings-on are social networking sites, so create a profile and post some links to your work. Be a part of the scene!

7. Use professional and easy to remember contact information/email address. That means you should ditch that old guitarhero99 at hotmail.com email address you’ve had since you were thirteen and simply go with your formal name or business name.

An effective website that follows the above suggestions will increase your visibility and undoubtedly lead to extensive career opportunities. However, while you should maintain a certain level of professionalism you should not be afraid to show a little personality. It is certainly good to show your credentials but visitors will feel a stronger connection to you if you show your human side.

Good luck!

Hot Romance Stories – Looking For Love

Hot romance stories available today range from gentle and sensitive erotic fiction to love between fantastic creatures and sex games that stretch the imagination. They invite readers to experience adventures beyond their normal lives.

Some classics in hot fiction, like ‘Story of O’ (by French author Anne Desclos, who wrote under the pen name Pauline Reage – English version published 1965) may not be readily available (you can probably find a second hand copy). ‘Story of O’ was an enormous commercial success and even won a literary prize. However, there are many other erotic novels which are available today. Regrettably, they may sell strongly but are often written with less psychological insight and without its calm, almost emotionless, elegant style.

Hot romance novels today have considerable freedom in the creation of the leading characters. Some are fairly ‘realistic’, as with cowboys, cops and soldiers, but nonetheless possessing great sexual appeal. Others involve the imagination and delve into fantasy. There is an abundance of vampires, werewolves, demon-slayers and even feline-based characters. The women are often – though not always – beautiful and invariably have a great longing and a yearning for love.

Some author’s write prolifically in this genre and don’t feel the need to be realistic, yet provide characters that readers can still identify with, as in ‘Pleasure Unbound’, by Larissa Ione. The heroine is a demon-slayer with a great sexual thirst that is denied her. Unfortunately, the character with greatest appeal for her is a hot demon!

Lora Leigh is another who writes extensively and with great imagination. In ‘The Man Within’, the man she loves belongs to a genetically altered Feline Breed which has shocked the world with their presence. In ‘Guilty Pleasures’ the women have husbands or lovers who are members of an exclusive and select Club, where a third party is invited into their beds.

Some have produced a new version of familiar stories. for instance, ‘ ‘Enchanted: Erotic Bedtime Stories For Women’ by Nancy Madore. She has assembled some of the world’s best known fairy tales into an erotic collection.

Others like to tempt controversy. In ‘Bedroom Bully’, by Trista Russell, the novel is, in essence, a romantic suspense novel. However, a key feature has the heroine falling in love and becoming passionately involved with the man who has taken her captive!

Not to be overlooked are the scenes described by Lorelei James. In ‘Tied Up, Tied Down’, the action is played out cowboy style as the hero uses rope to keep the heroine ‘tied’ to him in no-holds-barred sex games.

Hot romance is clearly alive and flourishing, as well as being eagerly read by millions of fans who enjoy a touch of erotica with their bedtime reading.

The first is obviously more expensive and comes with a larger range of benefits such as the meet and greet whereas the second one is still better than standard tickets but you do not get the chance to meet her in person. This package is also cheaper as it does not guarantee first two rows but the first 12 rows instead, which is still very close to the stage. Katy Perry is very popular so concert tickets are likely to sell out very quickly and the best seats to go within minutes of being released. It is a great concert to go to for any pop and rock fan where the crowd atmosphere is sure to be electric.

As there are so many different ticket retailers online, it is best to compare them against each other for the best prices or use a comparison website to do it for you. Some of them may appear to be cheaper when really they add on a bigger booking or postage and packaging fee at a later stage of the transaction process, so be very wary of this. There are various other aspects to consider as well so do your research before purchasing and see if there are better options available. It may save you a lot more money.
