Woodstock 50 lineup released today and people are bashing it like crazy…

The official Woodstock festival founded by Michael Lang released the lineup today. They are in a huge backlash ’cause of the lineup. People bashing it like crazy and saying all kinds of negative things about the lineup. From what I’m seeing, I’m seeing a lot of people complaining how this isn’t like the original ’69 lineup of how this lineup doesn’t have enough acts from the ’69 Woodstock.

Are they  on drugs or something? There are plenty of artists on this lineup that are from the original Woodstock festival in ’69. Let’s see: Santana, Canned Heat, Melanie, Country Joe McDonald (who was in Country Joe and the Fish), John Fogerty (Creedence was at Woodstock ’69), etc. etc.

As far as the different genres goes, that’s nothing new with Woodstock. They have always had different genres at all their Woodstocks over the years so it’s nothing new.

As far as my thoughts on the lineup goes, I think it’s pretty good. A lot of good talent here: Greta Van Fleet, Sturgill Simpson, Dead & Company, John Fogerty, Brandi Carlile, The Black Keys, Robert Plant and the Sensational Spaceshifters, The Raconteurs (this is Jack White’s band, btw) and I think the Killers are a pretty damn good band too.

I have no problem with the lineup except my only complaint is that it ignored metal for this one: no Metallica? No Megadeth? No Slayer? No Iron Maiden? No Ac/Dc? No Guns N’ Roses? Any of these bands would have been cool.

Anyway, we’re in a new generation of music lovers who won’t understand Woodstock and their history so it’s understandable why people of today are gonna get mad. There are gonna be a lot of people who aren’t with the times.

I do find it weird that Pussy Riot has been booked and I’m like WTF? It’s going to be interesting with that performance and no doubt some controversy will come out of that one. Will Pussy Riot get booed off the stage?

I told you this festival is going to have some rap artists ’cause previous Woodstocks had some rap artists. They had rap artists at Woodstock ’94 and ’99.

Other than that, it’s not a bad lineup. I’m glad Greta Van Fleet and Robert Plant are on the same bill together even though they are booked at different days. Will Greta Van Fleet and Robert Plant perform together? I think it’s a possibility they will do a duet together and it will be cool to see Josh and Robert sing together. Greta Van Fleet are huge Led Zeppelin fans and I’m sure it will be a dream come true for the band if they performed with Robert Plant. It’s a possibility that could happen so we’ll just wait.

“The Brock’s Videoblog: My Story – Part 1” will be released to the internet this Thursday…

I’ve watched “The Brock’s Videoblog: My Story – Part 1” several times over the weekend. Just finished editing it, the way I wanted it and it came out beautifully. Ya know, when making your own videoblogs, documentaries and even short films… you don’t need expensive and fancy equipment. All you need is an Ipad and Ipod/Iphone with a good camera on them and maybe an HD handheld digital videocamera and you’ll be all set. You also don’t need to spend a couple of hundred dollars on expensive video making software too. You can get decent video making software or apps that would cost around $15 – $50. You can make Hollywood-like movies through affordable video making software/apps nowadays.

I’m very proud of this videoblog and I will release it this coming Thursday. First thing I’ll do when I wake up Thursday morning, I’ll upload it for the internet. I’ll release it for both Facebook and youtube. Yeah, I finally decided that I would make a return to youtube after all. After a long hiatus from youtube, I think I’ll return full time.

I’m hoping it’ll get a lot of views and maybe it could go viral if lucky enough but we’ll see what happens. Looking forward for you all to see it. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time really.

Started editing my first videoblog today and it’s coming out really well… just the way I wanted it!

So I started editing my first videoblog and been working on it all aftertoon. It’s halfway done already and I’m very proud of how it’s coming out so far. It’s going to be documentary style, big time. Kind of like those documentaries you see on TV and on Netflix. Just a documentary film series about me. They’ll have background music and all.

I’m gonna have it uploaded as soon as I find it perfect enough and I’ll have it on the internet sometime this week. I’m going to try not to make it too long, though. I’m going to try not to make it over 25 minutes. If it does go over 25 minutes, gonna have to do some cutting.

Getting excited about this. Hope it gets lot of views but if not, that’s okay too!

Videoblog about my powerlifting adventures will come sometime next week…

So all weekend, I’ve been working on a test run of the video intro and video outro of my first video blog about powerlifting. Yeah, I’ll be having an intro and outro to all of my videoblogs. I picked out great music for both the intro and the outro that works perfectly.

I’m pretty much done filming footage for my first videoblog but still, I got to video tape myself talking about my weightlifting and powerlifting stuff. I’ve been writing the script for that on the Teleprompter app. I’m going to make sure that my speeches on the videoblog are going to be very well-spoken. I’m going to make sure every word is going to be spoken clearly and slowly. I’m gonna try not to mumble and stutter. If I do happen to mumble and stutter and mess up, I’ll start over again until it’s perfect. That’s how I do videoblogs. I’ll admit that I’m not the greatest speaker in the world but me making videoblogs could help improve my speaking skills. I’ll be filming my speeches over and over again until I find a take that is absolute perfect.

I want these videoblogs to be entertaining and they will be, trust me. Some of you may ask, is me joining the videoblog bandwagon an ego trip? I’m sure that’s what some of you are thinking but not really. My goal with these videos that I’m planning is that I hope to inspire other people and even help others with their dreams and goals in life. They’re not gonna be just about me at all. That’s all I hope to do is inspire and motivate others to hit the gym no matter who they are. I’m going to be talking about scoliosis a lot in these videos and think it’s finally time to start bringing awareness to that condition. People want to believe that weightlifting is dangerous for people with scoliosis and I want to help debunk that myth completely.

I’m excited to release this video soon. I really think a lot of people will like these videos I’m planning and I’m hoping they’ll get a lot of views. If not, oh well, I just want to get “My Story” told. I think it’s time to do that.

There are so many misconceptions about me and people always judging me and shit and maybe these videoblogs will help people realize who I really am. That’s what videoblogs are good for. Show people who you really are, ya know? That’s the goal. Stay tuned.

My video project is coming along well so far, I’ve been working on it all week…

I’m taking my own online documentary project very seriously and planning on making the first video well as possible. I’m thinking a lot of people are going to like it and may find it inspiring. I’m hoping it’ll get a lot of views. I’m just filming footage for it all week. Writing my ideas down and plotting everything of what my first video for the project will be like.

What’s going to be on it is going to be me talking about my life… starting from my childhood until now. Kind of like my own “autobiography” but doing it in video format instead of writing a book.

I think my story finally needs to be told. I won’t get too personal about my life but it’s mostly going to be about how I discovered music and weightlifting. That’s what it’s mostly going to be about, music and weightlifting. That’s the idea, ya know?

I’m getting very excited about this project and I’m already having fun with it. When will the first video be uploaded online? Well, once I finished writing the script and filming footage, I’ll start editing it this weekend so the first video probably won’t be uploaded until sometime next week. I’ve been filming my gym days all week. Gonna film my deadlift days tomorrow. I’m going to do a self interview for this video too and I gotta start working on that. The video could end up being pretty long like 15 to 20 minutes. It’s gonna be a documentary and online autobiography.

I think this is a good idea and I want to get it done. This video is going to take a long time to make but I want to make it good. It will be “good”, trust me. I think you’ll like it. Even all the haters that I have out there may even find it inspiring. It’s gonna be a cool project. Stay tuned, y’all!

After Star Wars: Episode 9 will there be an Episode: 10, 11 and 12? Yes, I think there will be…

So Oscar Isaac confirms that Disney is ending the Skywalker saga at Star Wars: Episode 9. That’s it.

https://www.inverse.com/article/54015-star-wars-episode-ix-9-ending-skywalker-family-saga-prequels

So now that the Star Wars Episode 9 is gonna be the last of the Skywalker story, does this mean it’s the end of the original Star Wars series? No, I don’t think it’s over ’cause I think the original series will continue and continue. I think there will be an Episode 10, 11 and 12 but they won’t be about the Skywalker story anymore.

Yeah, there will be other Star Wars spinoffs and other trilogies in the works but I think the original series with the Episode numbers will continue on forever. After episode 9, there will be a whole new story.

In the new Star Wars trilogy episodes 7, 8 and 9 there is a reason for all these new young characters ’cause it’s an obvious “passing of the torch” kind of thing. I predict that Episodes 10, 11, and 12 will focus on the new characters. It’ll continue the stories of Rey, Finn, Poe and everyone else.

Star Wars will be around forever. It’s never going away kind of like how James Bond and Star Trek will never end.

I think it’ll be an interesting idea that Episodes 10, 11, and 12 will focus on Rey. Rey will definitely be a lot older in Episodes 10, 11, and 12 so hopefully they’ll keep Daisy Ridley for those movies and they probably will.

I’m looking forward to Star Wars 9. I’m loving all the Star Wars movies so far. I’m loving the spinoffs and yes, I thought “The Last Jedi” was fucking awesome. My only disappointment with the new Star Wars movies was that Disney didn’t reunite Han, Leia and Luke which is a bummer. Would have been awesome if that happened.

My upcoming vlogs about powerlifting will be documentary style, almost like a reality show or something…

In the past, I thought about making my video project that I’ve been talking about with a professional film maker that I would hire. I realized that’s gonna be pretty costly. Hiring a local film maker to make a documentary about me won’t be cheap, I know that. I already have some pretty decent film making skills myself and I think I make good enough videos. I think it’s better to make the online documentary about me all by myself. I have a handheld digital camera which I haven’t used in a long time but I’m gonna start using it again. I also have an Ipad and Ipod Touch with cameras on them so I’m gonna film plenty of footage.

The documentary about me will have music on them, they’ll have me doing voiceovers, I’m going to film myself everywhere as much as possible, I’ll do my own interviews and all that stuff. I’m going to do this video project all by myself except I’m going to have other people film me ’cause there are going to be times where I won’t be able to hold the camera on my own. I already do a pretty good job making professional enough videos so I might as well do it all by myself.

Like I said in a previous post, I plan on buying a new Ipad and a new Ipod Touch for a much improved camera. I do have a handheld digital camera too, though.

This is gonna be an awesome project and looking forward to sharing my life story with everyone.

I’m currently filming footage for the project this week already. The powerlifting videos will be an ongoing series, I think.
