The new Paparazzi [the American Dream instigated by Fox Networks]

Michael Greyson's version Pararazzi Here's the story: 12-year old Michael Greyson performs Lady Gaga's Paparazzi at his Sixth Grade School event - an impressive piano driven cover. Solo, in front of his classmates. Someone records it on mobile video, about one million people go look at it on YouTube, and the Fox Networks decides to give this video a spot on their 10pm news. The result: just three days later the online video has 13 million views (and counting), Michael is invited at talkshows, and lives the American Dream. Click here to read more »

Not the Blog Writer, but The Ghost Writer [Roman Polanski, 2010]

Last night, we went to see The Ghost Writer, Roman Polanski's latest movie, in Raleigh's Independant Rialto Theater.
