Music For Relief [12 Jul 2009|11:55pm]

MUSIC FOR RELIEF is a grassroots effort comprised of musicians, music industry professionals and fans who believe that together we can create positive change. Established in 2005 to provide aid for those affected by the tsunami tragedy in South Asia, the idea for MUSIC FOR RELIEF originated amongst the members of the band Linkin Park who wanted to do something to help the victims. The idea was that if they made a donation, and then asked their musician peers and their fans to make a donation as well, a huge impact could be made in assisting relief efforts. With this in mind they started reaching out to others in the music community to get involved and became the founders of MUSIC FOR RELIEF. Our Mission is to respond to natural disasters and help victims recover and rebuild with an emphasis on housing, education programs and resources. MUSIC FOR RELIEF also recognizes the environmental consequences of global warming, which has demonstrated the capability to accelerate and strengthen certain types of natural disasters. Therefore the second goal of MUSIC FOR RELIEF is to prevent and decrease future natural disasters by reducing greenhouse gasses, seeking renewable forms of energy and educating the public about climate change.

The great news is, now you can do something to get involved. Music For Relief has a swagbucks now. You use it as your search engine, and part of the proceeds you earn just by searching the web go to victims of tragedies being helped by Music For Relief.

Hi everyone,

I've launched my photography website since few weeks now. Lately, I'm uploading some old pics of mine taken years ago while I wasn't working as official photographer. I've found some pics of Fort Minor taken back in 2005 at Paris for Rock en Seine, and 2006 at Chicago for the North American tour.

Enjoy and Take 5 seconds to leave some feedback --> www.ythevenonphotography.com

Fort Minor wins VMA. [01 Sep 2006|02:29am]

Fort Minor won the MTV VMA for Best Ringtone of the Year and Mike Shinoda was there to accept. He had quite the list of people to thank. =P

You can watch it on MTV Overdrive for now. I'm sure a rip will make its way into circulation sometime in the near future.

(p.s. i just need to brag about the fact that i was actually there at the vma's tonight and i kind of died when i saw him get up to accept. i had no idea he was there and was very much not expecting that. it made my night that much better. :D)

Anyone ever do anything interesting with Fort Minor songs? Make a music video? Anime music video? Use them in some sort of school/college project, quote lyrics in homework, etc?

Well, I guess I may be the lone humongous nerd, or I'm really creative. But the second I heard "Petrified", my mind began wandering into dance mode. I am a beginner in Middle Eastern Dance, or Bellydancing. I've been playing the Zills, or finger symbols, as well as dancing for coming up on about a year(started dancing last August, Zills in January).

Anyhow, I am performing my first solo to "Petrified" on April 1st. It includes dancing and playing the zills, which I'll tell you isn't exactly easy to combine, but its coming along. I was just curious if anyone else had done something cool with any Fort Minor stuff?

On a somewhat related sidenote, my friend and I are doing a duet that same night to "Cure for the Itch" by Linkin Park. I wonder how the dance community will take to all this "alternative" music?
