Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFpRNi_yr2w In NFL News, the San Francisco 49ers traded QB Alex Smith to Kansas City for a 2013 NFL Draft Second Round Pick and a conditional 2014 NFL Draft Second Round Pick. The Smith trade’s bad for the Niners because they now have no veteran backup QB and at a time when they’re starting a QB, Colin Kaepernick, who’s more prone to injury that others because of the Pistol Offense, which calls for him to run. Who will back up Colin Kaepernick? Who’s the proven...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv1PBb3iYIs In the video “Melissa King Sex Tape Video: One Of Many Porn Movies In Sexualized America,” this blogger makes the point that the now-dethrowned Melissa King lost her crown for essentially doing what every male who watches a beauty contests thinks: what would it be like to have sex with that beauty queen. In other words, beauty contests sell sex, and attract women who want to be sexually noticed – to toss Melissa King for allegedly being in a sex tape is hypocritical....

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cHinAcXigE Gloria Allred has come to every Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party I’ve covered since 2010, and overall I’ve interviewed the famed civil rights lawyer five times. But this fifth time, Allred’s guest, Natalie Khawam, was the quietest client Gloria’s had. Natalie Khawam’s best known as the sister of Jill Kelley, who is, in turn, best known as the pal of General David Petraeus, who in turn was involved in a sex scandal with Superwoman / author / military...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcF26EZdbF4 Sean McNabb was at the Night Of 100 Stars Party and stopped to talk with the media on hand. Sean McNabb was best known as a member of the rock group Quiet Riot before he got on television in the hit show Sons Of Anarchy. Did the TV / music non-split bother him? At first it did, but then “I got used to it,” and now he like it. Mr. McNabb says that what makes Sons Of Anarchy so popular is the number of great actors on the show, and much more than the clothes...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaGn9ZY5hMs 2013 Oscars: Mary Wilson Of The Supremes On Lena Horne Tribute, Oscar Predictions, at The Night Of 100 Stars Oscars Party Mary Wilson stopped by the The Night Of 100 Stars Oscars Party, once again, but this time without Mark Bego, who seems to be her almost constant friend and companion to events. One of the original Supremes, Wilson showed up with a new hairdo from last year, and a totally positive vibe in the wake of last year’s passing of Whitney Houston, which framed...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4FV3b2JqE4 Oscar Sunday started with my friend Eva picking me up at my hotel, the Resident’s Inn By Marriott (which has a great combination of price, room size, and service) and driving us to The Red Carpet for the 85th Academy Awards. What a fun, frenetic time, and because we had to get as much content made as we could (photos, videos, tweets), within an hour window of time. Overall, I’d say we did pretty well. We had to leave at 11 AM, which was perfect for grabbing a...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv4yVykTid0 This is the video version of yesterday’s Oscar Red Carpet visit that was expressed in the previous blog post. Note the number of students playing celebs, and also we, Eva and I, highlight the blogs that are now on The Red Carpet for The Academy Awards. ...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFPxFvQLv0k Cal Basketball Coach Mike Montgomery was rightfully tired of the play of his now-previously lethargic California Golden Bears, and without really thinking about it, decided to do something about it. That something came in the form of a kind of chest-bump, “Let’s get this thing going” action made to Alan Crabbe. Coach Montgomery didn’t mean to hit Crabbe, or scare him, just plain old get him going. And for that, there are some who want the University...

Tweet YouTube has a problem that must be stopped. People who claim to be located in Europe are trying to make a fast buck off American YouTubers. This video-blogger has been in such episodes many times as a YouTube Partner. What happens is that I may use 5 seconds of video of a publicly seen news event, say the Russian Meteor of February 15th, and then make a commentary about that clip. Now, the actually video itself is generally several minutes long, and is about a widely seen news issue. In other words, I’m referring...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DecsYwUxor0 Mindy McCready. There are few stories sadder than that of the country music singer who took her own life last Sunday, at the young age of 37. Ms McCready’s incredible voice and lovely looks powered her rise to the top of country music charts during the late 90s, but then her fall after the turn of the 21st Century led to the development of an addiction to drugs, and to bad men. From 2005 to 2013, Mindy McCready seemingly bounced from an abusive relationship, where her...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6ZbhW0u_Yk At the 2013 Crunchies, the TechCrunch blog-produced awards show for the Tech Community, I happened to run into Bob Ferdowsi, who’s become known as “The Mars Curiousity Mohawk Guy.” He was in San Francisco and at The Crunchies because the Mars Curosity Program was nominated for “Best Tech Achievement For 2012” – it won. And so Bob went up to collect the award that ironically mocks the chimp from 2001: A Space Odyssey, and received all of...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXhc90BV2Uk Beth Schnitzer is a masterful marketing and sponsorship professional, and friend of this video-blogger, who stepped down from her position as Vice President Of Strategic Alliances for Pier 39 in San Francisco, and to focus on her new company, Spritz Marketing. Beth has represented Pier 39 in her position for 12 years, and for two years before that, John Bosch, her predecessor, told Ms. Schnitzer he wanted her to have his position when he stepped down. In 2000, Bosch made good...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WY5CTt8k04 There’s a lot of noise about Google Play and what one developer, Dan Nolan, called a “privacy problem” – it’s not that at all. But before this blogger explains why it’s not an issue, at least for Google, let’s look at the developer’s claim. Dan blogs: If you bought the app on Google Play (even if you cancelled the order) I have your email address, your suburb, and in many instances your full name. Each Google Play order is treated...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6u_ksJ1o78 “Alabama Crimson Tide Football Players Arrested For Robbing Beating Student,” is a horrible headline and even worse is what Eddie Williams, Tyler Hayes, D.J. Pettway, and Brent Calloway are said to have allegedly done to fellow Alabama student Samuel Jurgens. The thing that makes one take away the “allegedly” tag is that all of the players admitted to the crime. The Alabama Football Crime also sheds light on a problem around the country, especially...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-ijV63JG0U Kate Upton, Katherine Webb, and 10 of the 17 SI Swimsuit Models, were on The Late Show With David Letterman, Monday Night. And of course they were all hot. But if you’re wondering who’s on the full list, here they are: Adaora, Alyssa Miller , Anne V , Ariel Meredith , Chrissy Teigen , Cintia Dicker , Emily DiDonato , Genevieve Morton , Hannah Davis, Irina Shayk , Jessica Gomes , Jessica Perez Julie Henderson , Kate Bock , Kate Upton , Natasha Barnard , Nina Agdal...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KavKPY-bfKo In LA, the Los Angeles Police $1 Million reward for Christopher Jordan Dorner has caused about 600 tips – none right to date. Dorner looks like any bald, husky, black man – like Grammys host LL Cool J or Michael Lynch, the American Idol castoff. Now the LAPD has made it dangerous to be black, bald, and male in LA. This $1 million reward idea should have been thought through, but the understandably emotional rank-and-file officers are pulling out all the stops without...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJrHiFS1eqc Early this morning, at about 4 AM PST, Pope Benedict XVI sent word out that he would resign at the end of the month, February 28th, and for heath-related reasons. The Pope is just two months shy of his 86th birthday, and has served as the 265th leader of the Roman Catholic Church for just about eight years. Pope Benedict started as the oldest Pope ever selected at 78. The man who’s real name is Joseph Ratzinger, took over as Pope during a time of amazing social and...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u45bxCo7oD0 At the 2013 Crunchies, a woman was walking through the after party showing a conversation starting fashion piece: a purse that lights up and changes color. She said it was the product of a company called “Agent Of Presence” and that it was made by Alison Lewis and Alana Yoel. According to PandoDaily, Ms. Lewis has a good track record of fusing fashion and tech, and to the point of being named one of Fast Company’s Top Ten Women In Tech in 2010. A bit of web...

Tweet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iizp-PNxshM Kate Upton Is Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Girl Again for the second straight year. That’s right, the New York-based supermodel was the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Girl, and now she’s the same for 2013. S.I.’s headline for Kate is “you can’t hold back Kate Upton,” and the issue featuring Mr. Upton on the magazine’s cover will be released on newsstands Tuesday, with the online coverage to start Monday. Also, Monday...

Tweet The following was originally written as a response to a statement on the YouTube Partner Monetization Forum that if a YouTuber just concentrated on making better videos, that would overcome the giant revenue drops they were experiencing. For those of you who don’t know, a “YouTube Partner” is one who makes money from the traffic their video attracts on YouTube. The program has been the key reason for YouTube’s continued growth since 2007, when it started. In the middle of writing the response,...
