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.

A Few New Features

Posted: September 11, 2008 in Unsorted

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?

Posted: August 8, 2008 in Unsorted

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

Posted: June 26, 2008 in Unsorted

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:
