Two New Roque's Reality Videos

I have been inspired by so many things going on in my life. Not only have I been blogging about these recent events, but I also decided to record those videos regarding those things. I hope you enjoy it.

One is a video called "Role Models." I talk about the three people that became the main reason why I'm doing what I'm doing right now. I want to ask you guys the same question. Who are the role models of your life?

The second video is called "Bring Back The Classics." I have been paying attention to the business for quite some time now. I have seen dramatic changes that I cannot stop looking at. Because of that, I always say "Let's bring back the classics."

Kanye West's "Runaway": Reaction & Review

By J9 of J9's MusicLife

Just in case you missed it, last Saturday, October 23, Kanye West premiered his highly anticipated 35 minute video, locking down three major TV stations MTV, MTV2, and BET. This video's soundtrack was tracks from his upcoming album My Dark and Twisted Fantasy due for release on Monday, November 22, 2010.

Listen to Kanye explain the symbolism in the video:

ChinaBabe's Take:  This video is mostly a beautiful piece of abstract moving art with Selita Ebanks as the center of attraction.  I understand the phoenix represents his career and the rise from the ashes.  I even understand the dinner scene, being the "last supper" symbolizing his rebirth and renewed spirits.  There are great touches of brilliance moving toward genius throughout this short film. However, I believe that the genius will be lost to most people because of the cocky arrogance that is Kanye West. In some ways, I don't think that this production was completely necessary.  There were times where I just thought this is a bit much...but in true Kanye form, he was pleased with himself.  Kanye is beyond talented but this film will just be 35 minutes of confusion to most people...

Lebron Ask, “What Should I do?”

Lebron James New Nike Commercial Creates Buzz – “What Should I Do?” This is the question asked by former Cleveland Cavaliers and now Miami Heat player Lebron James in his recent Nike commercial.

Lebron James has been creating so much buzz among the players of the NBA. For one, his mother Gloria James has been rumored before to have an affair with fellow basketball player Delonte West. After that controversy, his famous move to leave his home team Cleveland Cavaliers despite the fact that he would be taking less money to play in Miami was next.

Lebron left Cleveland to join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami Heat giving the team one of the most dynamic power trios in the basketball league history. Back then, James uttered the following words: “The attraction in Miami is being alongside Dwyane Wade and being alongside Chris Bosh. It is a new challenge for myself. The major factor was this is the best opportunity for me to win and win now and in the future. The number one thing with me is to help my teammates get better and to win.”

Perhaps the new Nike Commercial of Lebron James asking for “What Should I Do” is a reflection of the many things and controversies happening to him now. He asks his audience: “What Should I Do?”

Prior to his announcement on Sunday it wasunderstood that Armstrong's appearance at the Tour de France in July was his competitive swansong in the peloton although there were to be a couple of promotional appearances in races in the US.
Armstrong is one of several people named in doping claims by Floyd Landis that are the subject of US federal investigators, although he hasn't yet been called to give evidence.
“I’m excited to be competing in my last professional ride outside the US at the Santos Tour Down Under,” said Armstrong. “It will be my third time to the event, and I’m sure I will enjoy it as much as I have the first two times.
“I will never forget the reception we received in Adelaide when we kicked off the LiveStrong global campaign,” he added. “I look forward to racing and also checking in on the progress in South Australia.”
The Tour Down Under, which is predominatly a sprinter's race so there will be little chance for Armstrong to challenge for the podium but he chose to use the race for his return to professional cycling in 2009, four years after his retirement from the sport after winning the 2005 Tour de France.
South Australian Premier Mike Rann announced Armstrong’s return to Tour Down Under at a Bicycle SA ride with Stuart O’Grady. The UCI World Tour race will be held from January 16-23, 2011.
“This is an amazing opportunity for cycling fans across the globe to head to Adelaide and be part of history as Lance competes in his farewell ride as a professional on international soil,” Rann said. “Lance is a true hero of the sport and we are delighted he has chosen to compete again in South Australia and make his international farewell here.”

Sending my best out to everyone this A.A+Wsome Wednesday. I want take time this week to reflect on Bullying and Hate Crimes, which has taken a huge toll in the LGBT community over the past few weeks, primarily amongst our gay youth.

Sadly...but finally, this serious matter is making national headlines. For a while it seemed as if the world did not care about us, and more importantly our gay youth. Today, tomorrow, and forever, I pause to remember the lives lost and the lives almost lost. With love I remember: Raymond, Tyler, Seth, Billy, Asher, and Carl Joseph by inviting you to listen to my special message and poem below:

Sony Internet TV powered by Google TV -- Modern TV/Future TV

Today, Sony Electronics debuted Sony Internet TV, which gives users the ability to watch HDTV, surf the Internet and enjoy apps on one screen. Oh, and it's powered by Google. Supporting the launch is "Big Screen," a 60-second ad that brings people outdoors to experience Sony Internet TV on a giant screen. A massive tweet is sent from the screen, urging people to travel downtown and interact with the TV and other onlookers. People are watching "Jeopardy," then looking up an answer on Wikipedia. Add a cute dog video from YouTube, a movie off Netflix, a soccer game, and conclude the day by being on the 10 p.m. news.
