Egypt The Battle Is Still On For Freedom

Early in 2011, I interviewed an Egyptian student who took place in the revolution. Here is the video...

The Egyptian Revolution is not over. The fight rages on. At least the sisters & brothers in the streets are starting to wear goggles and makeshift protection against the nerve gas and tear gas that has been traced to American shores. Is it any wonder that America number one money making business is military equipment and support? Is it any surprise that the number one game in the U.S. right now is CALL OF DUTY where war is depicted as a sexy game? When will the public start to see how things are connected and that supporting and making violent toys and tear gas hurts the entire world? Whatever tear gas and nerve gas that is used by the military in Egypt can and will be used on American citizens. I wouldn't be surprise if the uprisings around the world are all just a testing ground for what will hit America soon.

Simon Lynge For Thanksgiving

I heard Simon Lynge's voice on KPFK.org recently. Although I was very busy with things to do and a tight schedule, I stayed in my car to listen to his calming voice and enlighten words. After I heard how to spell his last name correctly and wrote it down, I was able to find him online. Here are two videos. The first is "The Future"

and the second is the classic Bill Withers tune "Lean On Me"

DWTS No Hope & MadMaksim in Mirror Ball Finals

Not much of a surprise to anyone, Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were voted off Dancing With The Stars last night. These two definitely brought drama to the "reality show". Did I hear right that the Three Finalists, Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke, J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff and Ricki Lake & Derek Hough were scheduled to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and NOT Solo & Chmerkovskiy? Usually the voted off couple is interviewed on JKL directly after the show. Did ABC do a change up as a way of punishing the pair or is that the normal turn of events?

Freemason Conrad Murray Verdict In The Death of MJ KAT TALES TV Videos

Here is what it was like to be outside the courthouse moments before the verdict in the Dr. Conrad Murray Involuntary Manslaughter Trial of Michael Jackson. The first video has the lead up to the announcement. LaToya Jackson is seen arriving to court, variety of people express their veiws, different perspectives outside the courthouse are shown with various mobile technology...

In the second clip, members of the Jackson family: Katherine, Joe, Rebbie, Randy and Jermaine are seen leaving the courthouse. One fan passes out and I talk to legendary photographer Bill Jones about his reactions.

Dr. Conrad Murray Manslaughter Verdict Reaction in Pictures

Is was a last minute decision on my part to drive to the courthouse and cover the verdict for Freemason Dr. Conrad Murray. I mean what kind of doctor doesn't know how to perform CPR? Moments after I made the split decision to go, my True Religion jeans zipper decided to break. I didn't have time to go home and change I had less than an hour to get situated at the courthouse. So I just wore and over sized coat and looked like I was headed for a winter in Buffalo. I ended up burning in hell. I was in a sea of MJ fans, supporters of Conrad Murray as well as the media brigade. A lot of shoving and knocking around from the "PROS". Majority of MJ fans were very polite and thoughtful. The exceptions were of course the people who were trying to use the event for their own personal media time. There was a guy hawking MJ purses and some other guy pushing to get in or near any interviews that were taking place. I'm glad I was there only for a few hours. I got a serious migraine after I got home and I wept on the long walk to my car. More people are responsible for the death of Michael Jackson. Conrad Murray is guilty fall guy yet the people pulling the strings are still making millions of dollars off of Michael Jackson's death. Here is a look in pictures. Extensive videos are forthcoming...

Game (which they won).

DWTS' Mad Maksim Tries To Walk Off Bad Press With Partner Hope Solo

Most of us know that much of the "reality show" world is fake. So when Maksim Chmerkovskiy went ballistic a few weeks ago on DWTS, some fans thought it was way out of line while others thought MadMaksim was rightfully defending Hope Solo. Was it a ruse to bolster ratings? Or was MadMaks sick of Chaz Bono getting a free ride for walking instead of dancing? One will never know. DWTS tries to be a mixture of political correctness with a dash of Playboy centerfolds (Brooke Burke, Kendra Wilkinson, Kelly Monaco), Porn Celeb Kim Kardashian, couple of contestants with drug addictions (Aaron Carter), battles with sobriety (David Arquette), a rape charge (Lawrence Taylor), money laundering (Tom Delay) and a host of other odd quirks that makes DWTS such a wonderful dysfunctional fun family. So MadMaksim's outburst was a ratings boom and a tabloid seller n'est-ce pas? The big question is how much hot water is Maksim actually in with the Executives of the show? Will he be back next season or will MadMaks take a much needed break? Here is MadMaks and Hope Solo spending some "good press" quality time together.
