Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3z6pOHw-x0 Everyone agreed that this year’s Inauguration was, as Paul Ryan put it, much warmer than the last Obama Inauguration in 2009. One of the people who noted that as we were sitting down in Section 16 was Wesley Clark. General Clark is a four-star general, Vietnam Net, and at one point the Supreme Commander of NATO. General Clark’s life reads as a living history book that takes one from Arkansas to Vietnam, to his run for President in 2004....

Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XWSA7TQfrk On Thursday, it was announced that J.J. Abrams, the creator of Lost and Cloverfield, and the director of the last two new Star Trek movies, including the upcoming Star Trek: Into Darkness, has been selected to direct Star Wars VII. Wow. He’s bringing together two separate major Sci Fi universes, so I have to ask, who the hell did he sleep with or pay off to get that gig? We know how Hollywood works: the only way J.J. Abrams got the right to direct...

Tweet Follow me Lance Armstrong and the Chevron Ecuador environmental lawsuit attorneys the same PR team in common. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hnnfJy7ri4 Yes, you can get off the floor, it’s true. The same attorneys, publicists and crisis managers who have helped Armstrong dodge justice for the past decade are the same team of consultants supporting plaintiff’s Steven Donziger and his fraudulent $18 billion lawsuit against Chevron in Ecuador. Here is the list of the same people who advised and...

Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QazSOZwkYCY On the way into The Inauguration and to my seat area, I ran into Rep. John Garamendi (D) California, who introduced me to Livermore Mayor John Marchand. Garamendi was on his way to his seat high up i the podium area. Mayor Marchand was, like Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and myself, a ticket holder in Red Ticket Section 16. ...

Tweet Follow me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCWtvWJHlbE I met Paul Ryan (R) Wisconsin while boarding United Airlines flight 621 from Washington Reagan National Airport. Actually, as I was boarding he came up and said, in a hurry, “this is the flight, right?” And I thought “he looks like Paul Ryan,” then I realized he was. So, having just talked to retiring Illinois Senator Roland Burris, who boarded the same flight, I asked Paul if I could interview him, and Congressman Ryan said “yes.”...

Tweet Follow me President Obama Takes Oath Of Office At The Inauguration, and the crowd goes wild! For some reason this video gives me goose bumps. It’s the culmination of a lot of effort put in to getting President Obama reelected, and it’s good for the United States of America. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YncSmFp0PEA Moreover, there was no error in the saying of President Obama’s name, this time around. Chief Justice Stevens said it twice and with clarity: “Barack Hussein Obama.”...

Tweet Follow me This vlogger was there in attendance as Beyonce sang the National Anthem At The Presidential Inauguration 2013. There was no lip sync. Repeat: No Lip Sync. She sang the song. Now, it may be that the music was piped in, but there’s no way she didn’t sing the National Anthem. None at all. As for her performance, it was off the charts, but also equally off the charts good was Kelly Clarkson, who was so hot, the audience of over a million saw a scene with him just mouth agape shocked. ...

Tweet Follow me This was a fun time on Monday night, January 7th, just before CES officially started, and before the last day of NMX. Jessica Northey, Gwen Sebastian, Dylan Taylor, Tracy Taylor, DJ DU were all at Planet Hollywood for Jessica’s “Twangout” at NMX Vegas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lB2BhHmUOc This is the first of several videos to come from that fun time. Please bare with me, as between CES, NMX, AT&T Developers Summit Luncheon, and The Presidential Inauguration, I’m...

Tweet Follow me Michelle Obama. The First Lady generated a lot of excitement over how she would look for the 57th Presidential Inauguration, and she did not disappoint those waiting for a look at her new bangs-based hairdo. Lovely and regal in a navy blue Thom Brown coat and long dress, Mrs. Obama walked out to the Inauguration platform to cheers, oohs, and ahs – most of them generated by women, including those next to me at Red Ticket Section 16. As the video shows, all approved of her new look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkeXArDgPqQ The...

Tweet Follow me Inauguration surprise: Oakland Mayor Jean Quan was right behind me at the Presidential Inauguration. We were both seated in Red Ticket Zone Section 16. Turns out that was a really awesome place to be, with both the Mayor of Oakland and the Mayor of Livermore, as well as the legendary former Supreme Allied Commander Of NATO and presidential candidate Wes Clark. I took time to go over and talk to Mayor Quan and she was kind enough to give me an interview in the middle of all the pre-inauguration...

Tweet Follow me Just recapping the Presidential Inauguration 2013 Sunday, and the San Francisco 49ers big-win and right to go to the Super Bowl, before getting dressed to go back to the Capitol for today’s public ceremonies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRC1lOqK4Y4 Sunday was this blogger’s day of arrival in Washington, DC. And thanks to sponsors like Yael Greenberg and my Mom, it’s important to add. But, while there were small complication associated with baggage going to the airport of the...

Tweet Follow me Presidential Inauguration 2013: Zennie62 trip got off underway with a stop in Chicago, a layover, really, until the morning, when I head to the airport to catch a flight to Washington DC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZrmKycGA9U I’m flying on standby, so picking the flight that I can get on is a hard go of it. But I will pray – please, you do too! Catch the coverage here and at Zennie62 on Tout.com and on Twitter.com, as well. And last, but not least, thanks to Yael Greenberg...

Tweet Follow me Lance Armstrong appeared on Oprah to say that he was sorry for lying about doping. This blogger’s not upset with Ms. Armstrong because it was expected. There’s no way a person can beat cancer as he did and on the way to the stunning number of cycling victories he’s had. But the bottom line is this: Lance Armstrong beat cancer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4reG-gTlZA That aside, he lied about doping, and bullied and threatened a lot of people in the process of doing so. As...

Tweet Follow me Yahoo! Sports Mike Silver’s taken the covers off the problem of black coaches not being hired for open NFL head coaching jobs. In the space of a week, Sliver has written about the problem twice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y82LvbJiuzU Mike Silver’s latest work is something of a frank blockbuster, where he openly points to most of the people criticizing his questioning of an obvious racial problem as being “white people.” Mike is to be rewarded for truly questioning...

Tweet Follow me Wednesday was President Obama’s finest hour. In introducing a comprehensive new set of gun control-related policies, President Obama showed the kind of leadership and fearless desire to make change that even some of his critics had to sit back and pause to observe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B86Xi8kZ08o With the stroke of his pen, Barack Obama signed into law or into legal review 23 items of action, including several direct executive orders that don’t need Congressional approval...

Tweet Follow me Manti Teo’s story that his girlfriend, the supposedly passed-on Lennay Kekua is, well, not a real person, a hoax, has become topic number one in American sports pop culture. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npjFzSeEJE4 The story was unearthed by the blog Deadspin two days ago. But before this blogger dives into the details behind it, let’s get this take out of the way: a girlfriend is someone you have sex with period. And by that, real sex – not phone sex or cyber sex – the...

Tweet Follow me On January 14th, Anna Kendrick went from being an actress known to some of America, to being one known to more of America, and she did it with one single Twitter tweet. This one: Ugh – NEVER going to a Ryan Gosling movie in a theater again. Apparently masturbating in the back row is still considered “inappropriate” — Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) January 14, 2013 And to which, this blogger says Ms. Kendrick picked the wrong guy. Anna Kendrick, Zennie Abraham’s a...

Tweet Follow me Megan O’Neil is someone I met online, but not like Manti T’eo’s girlfriend. Ms. O’Neil wrote about me for The Social Times in 2011, and made a great blog post that covered my video-blogging history. This blogger took the chance to turn the tables, in a way, at the IAWTV Academy Awards. Megan was in attendance and standing next to me in the red carpet (well, really, blue carpet) line. The result was this interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rDhS-XzX7E Make sure...

Tweet Follow me Oakland Acupuncture’s Beth gave this blogger a good scare while at FitnessSF, the gym that was called Gold’s Gym Oakland, last night. The massage therapist set up a table to allow members to have their antioxident levels tested. The higher the level the better, the lower the level, the worst. Well, this blogger’s level’s low – not dangerously low, but close. Here’s what she told me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlWUfBG811g This underscores the importance...

Tweet Follow me This is Isabelle LaRue Of “Engineer Your Space,” the winner for “Best Educational Web Series” At IAWTV At CES 2013. I talked to Isabelle after the awards, who shared that the entire 14-videos-and-counting show came out of her establishing a new apartment in New York City. Since she lives, works, and entertains out of it, she came up with creative ways to use the space. Here’s a video from one of her episodes, this one on how to engineer your closet: And here’s...
