Michael Jackson

Posted: June 26, 2009 in Unsorted

Let’s remember Michael Jackson for what he was not what he had become. He was a pop sensation. A legend. Without Michaels contributions to the music world, where would it be today?

Jessetalks wishes to commerate and remember Michael for his extraordinary talents as a singer and dancer. A leader for many musical artists. The top banner is dedicated to honoring Michael on this day of grieving.

To enhance your experience while viewing Jessetalks I’ve added a few new features to the blog.  As you already know, there are active RSS Feed links located on the top right hand corner of the page. However there are now social networking links located in the right hand navigation bar too! You can bookmark this site to delicious, stumbleupon, reddit, slashdot, digg, and 35 other networks.

I’ve also added a multilingual translator for visitors from other countries around the world.  I won’t gaurentee that the translations will always be accurate, but they are decent.  Currently we offer translations in Simplified Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.  If enough people request translations from other countries I won’t hesitate to get them added.

Thanks for viewing!

Where have all the images gone?

Due to a server problem it appears that all my images hosted on an external image host have been compromised.  Luckily I have a backup copy of all the artwork posted to this site. Therefore over the course of the next few days I will be tediously relocating them so they are locally hosted.

I deeply appologize for the inconvience if any observed. Please use the contact form to report missing artwork after Sunday, August 10th.  I will tend to the issue as soon as possible.

So yes Patrick, your doodle will be back up shortly for your viewing pleasure.

Relax It’s a Layout Change

Posted: July 2, 2008 in Unsorted

My blog layout has changed! No it’s not because the season has changed or because I want to get a new feel on my site. The real reason is that I needed more space to work with.  If you haven’t already noticed the old blix theme was running short on navigation space. With the addition of the music spotlight, there was barely any room left to add additional links.

This problem has been solved with the installation of the new layout by Sadish.  The header image will be replaced very soon, probably with something more simplex.

Just wanted to let you all know that the site didn’t explode.  It just had a much needed makeover to suit its current needs.  Feel free to drop a comment to this entry to express your thoughts about the update.

Music Spotlight Plan

New Music spotlight coming soon

A few days ago I promised I’d get a new video up by today. As you can see, that hasn’t really happened. With only four hours left in the day (Hawaii time) it doesn’t look good. So I suppose I should babble out a few excuses as to why I’ve neglected to post the video up in time.  Well, it’s simple… I’m actually still working on it. I’m working on a few videos to be honnest.

One of my subscribers pitched the idea to me that it would be a great idea to feature new an aspiring artists.  You know, the normal youtuber who’s trying to get their start in the music world.  I thought this was a great idea.  This is the main reason as to why “This is Me” wasn’t posted… yet.  I’ve been scouring the internet looking for some talent on youtube.  I won’t say who I’ve picked to be the first ever “New Music Spotlight” on my channel, but I can say it’s a good one.  Maybe you’ve even seen some of his videos.

Anyway, I probably shouldn’t promise an actual date this time around.  However I do plan to get both videos up really soon. I appologize for my failure to follow through. It’s coming though… be patient.

This Is Me

Camp Rock This is Me

Did you love Camp Rock? Well, I have to admit that I found the movie quite enjoyable… especially under Disney standards.  There was a lot of emotion going on and the actors did a great job of portraying the message of the film – To be yourself.  Previously I posted a video on youtube for Gotta Find You sung by Joe Jonas.  It’s still not too late to check that out.  However I wanted to make an announcement that I will be releasing another Camp Rock video very soon. (Probably within the next four days)

Here is a quick preview of the song, This is Me:

Told You So Download Pack

Posted: June 21, 2008 in Unsorted

If you haven’t already seen my Told You So video for Jesse McCartney video now’s a great time to do it.  Anyway I’ve finally gotten around to uploading the image pack for this video.  Make sure that you visit JesseMcCartneyFrance.com for the original images. Or you can download them directly from my blog.  Remember, if you download directly some of the images may be watermarked. This is to promtote visiting the original site to get the images.

“You’re the voice I hear inside my head. The reason that I’m singing. I need to find you. I gotta find you.” Joe Jonas’ song from Disney’s Camp Rock is an amazingly simple peice. However it is in this simplicity that they lyrics become powerful. This piece is about someone search for love, and can’t seem to find the right person. He is stuck in the past and can’t move on to new relationships or one that satisfys or matches his previous. (Or at least that is how I interpret it)

Take a look at the video and interpret the lyrics for yourself.  If you really feel ambitious you can purchase the song from itunes. As always I will refuse to give you any downloads to the song file. Support the Jonas Brothers.

However if you would like the images for the video you can either visit the source: JoeJonasPictures.com, or download them all here.  My download contains several images which have been watermarked to promote you getting the direct download from JoeJonasPictures. I do not gaurentee the uptime of my hosted download. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Note: The download pack host has been changed to a new more reliable provider. Also not that the file size is 9.82mb due to several images which are over 1000×1000 pixels.

I guess this statistics thing is starting to become a bimonthly exercise. I also wanted to include my two newest videos in the stats log so that I have a better reference point at the end of the month on how they are doing. Plus I’m quite bored at the moment and wanted a long tedious task to accomplish ^_^

Without further ado here is the first youtube stats log for June. Click on the green arrows to the left of every title to go to the video page. Red flags indicate that the video has accumulated more than 10,000 hits since the last update; and white flags indicate that the video has over 30 new comments since the last update.

Jesse McCartney is known for his beautiful long blond hair. So what made him chop it all off? His Record Company? Anyway Here is a collection of Jesse’s hair throughout his career as a musician an actor. I did not include his child hood hair because I thought it was just silly 😛

This should satisfy all those people searching for him with his darker hair for the movie Keith as well. Be Happy, I care about your secret obsession.

Jesse McCartney's Hair Throughout the years, black and blonde

Worst Haircut Ever

Example. Not me.

So normally I wouldn’t really care about getting my hair cut. However this time, I really didn’t want to get it cut. I had spent six months trying to grow it out and keep it on the long side. Apparently my parents really didn’t like this and decided to force me to get it cut today.

There’s nothing more to say than my hair is aweful. I can safely say that it was 99% better before. Of Course, if you ask my parents they’ll say that it’s better now. Lies. I wish I could show you a picture of what I look like, however my identity will be released in doing so. You’ll just have to settle for that “example” pictures up top. (Alright just what my hair looked like before because I couldn’t find any photos to match my current state)

I’m really not looking to going back to school tomorrow. Bleh. Anyone care to stand in…

Three More Days

Three more days until Jesse McCartney’s album Departure is released. Make sure you get it on itunes! I’ll also be posting up a “sing-a-long” video for his song My baby. (Read more in the previous posts) It’s been a lack of video posting… I know. But once his full album is released I’ll try to get most of the decent songs done.

Any suggestions for new videos? Leave a comment here or on my youtube channel. I’ll be happy to ablige.

And Dave Responds…

Thought my album art was pretty cool but he didn’t have time to reupload the files. Oh well, at least he liked them. If you want to use the unofficial blueskies sunshine session album art you can get the images from the links in the previous post.

Hopefully when he does the “Fireside Sessions” in winter I’ll be more on the ball with sending some art his way.

Free Rice

Dave recently posted a video up on his youtube promoting freerice.com. Now… this website. It’s pretty amazing in my opinion. You get to improve your vocab (helps tons on SATs) while also helping kids in third world type countries. That’s a pretty sweet deal. Anyway so far I’ve donated 12040 grains of rice. I’ll probably hit a million by the end of the year. It’s quite addicting.

So, if you’re into the whole save the world and score good on the SATs and ACT while your at it deal… Then be sure to click the link in the right side navigation.

I finally set up a wordpress…  *whoop whoop* Anywho I guess I’ll have to keep this updated with posts. I mainly plan to use this blog to talk about whatever is on my mind. (Which is usually nothing) Eh, on second though I think I better come up with a few topics that will actually be interesting.

Perhaps I’ll post up some of my favorite youtube people.

Musicfromblueskies 
Nerimon

There’s a whole bunch more but these people… pure gold >:D

 Anyway, keep checking back (for my audience of 0). Eventually I’ll talk about something interesting.
