Sylvester Stallone confirms he’s directing, producing “Creed 2″… he’s more than a star in the movie…

Sly put up this post on Instagram today, announcing for the first time ever that he’s directing and producing Creed 2. So let me get this straight… Sly wrote the movie, and he’s also starring as Rocky Balboa in it again too. Sly directing, starring and producing all in one movie. Wow. That’s a lot of work really; it’s called multitasking.

What happened to Ryan Coogler? He decided not to direct Creed 2? I bet the reason is that he’s the director of the Marvel movie Black Panther, so he is committed to that.

I find it amazing news that Sly is directing a Rocky movie again. He hasn’t directed a Rocky movie since Rocky Balboa (released in 2006).

Creed 2 is exciting ’cause Ivan Drago is coming back, and yes… Dolph Lundgren is gonna reprise that role. It’s gonna be interesting to see what the plot to Creed 2 is gonna be. Does Ivan Drago now have a son, and he’s about to fight Apollo’s son? That’s probably the direction they’re gonna go ’cause I can’t see Ivan coming out of retirement. We’ll wait and see, though.

Sly obviously loves the Rocky character, and you can tell that he loves it. They didn’t give us Rocky 7 but technically, the first Creed movie is Rocky 7, in my opinion. The Creed spinoffs are a continuation of the Rocky series.

Congrats Sly on getting another chance to direct another Rocky film. This would be the 8th Rocky film, technically.

Harvey Weinstein ousted from the Weinstein Co. which is good but will Miramax get him out too???

Some may think it’s impossible to fire the main boss/owner out of his own company, but it is possible. It happened to Steve Jobs once, remember? The Weinstein Co. did a smart thing ousting him; however, will Miramax do the same? Weinstein was co-founder of Miramax studios, and I’m sure he’s still under employment there too. Lets hope Miramax follows.

Harvey Weinstein Forced Out of His Own Company

Libtards & Never Trumpers go after Trump for alleged bad treatment toward women but they don’t go after Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein for the same…

I’m sick of seeing how one-sided liberals really are and this is pretty much proof of it. They go after Trump for alleged bad treatment for women, and they even went after Trump for his locker room banter talk with Billy Bush — ya know, the “grabbing the pussy” stuff… blah blah blah and now here comes Harvey Weinstein all over the news over his sexual harassment allegations.

Famous conservatives gets in trouble for  alleged sexual harassment like Bill O’ Reilly, Sean Hannity and Roger Ailes for example, but liberals never say anything about Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein. Liberals are completely silent about Harvey… the same goes for Hollywood celebrities. They’re not saying anything about it either.

Do liberals really care about the safety and well-being of women like these feminists claim? It seems that when a conservative is being accused of sexual harassment, that’s when they care about women, but they don’t care about women when liberals are getting accused.

It doesn’t surprise me about Harvey Weinstein, though. Hollywood is full of sexual predators all over. Sure Weinstein is a legendary film mogul, but still though, that guy is a total scum bag.

I’m betting my money that nothing will happen to Weinstein. Bill O’ Reilly was forced to step-down from his show and Roger Ailes was forced to step-down as CEO of FOX News before he passed ’cause of all these allegations. Will Weinstein get forced to step-down from his production companies like Miramax and the Weinstein Co.? No, nothing will happen to him since he’s Democrat and a liberal. Only conservative celebrities get in trouble nowadays. Pathetic.

Movie stars are quiet about the Harvey sexual harassment allegations ’cause that’ll be risky for their careers, and they probably don’t want to lose movie roles. No doubt, Harvey helped a lot of movie stars over the years.

One thing to keep in mind, though, that Harvey is best friends with Bill Clinton. They have been for years, that’s all you need to know about how guilty Harvey is.

It is possible to go from negative criticism to positive criticism when it comes to your music… you just gotta improve your talent is all…

It’s nice to get positive feedback toward my cover songs each time I upload a new one. Each time I upload a new one, it gets all kinds of positive feedback. I remember the days when people used to make fun of my musical talent. Really, I got really harsh criticism toward my music back then. That’s when I realized that I needed to improve myself musically. Yeah, I know you should ignore the “haters”, but admittedly I guess they can sometimes be helpful. The haters honestly helped me improved musically. Nowadays, I don’t hear much negative criticism each time I put out something new. Most of the feedback I’ve been getting lately are mostly very positive.

If people are bashing your music, it is possible to get them to stop. Like I said above, sometimes you need to listen to the critics in order to improve. I decided to step-up… take music a little more seriously by taking my guitar skills to the next level and teaching myself how to sing better. I’ve also been learning music theory too. In order to get people to like you musically, you got to practice, practice, practice. That’s all there is to it. When you practice and get better, people will see it and respect you for it. I haven’t seen much people saying hateful things about my music nowadays which is awesome really.

I really do my best musically. I’m not trying to become the next music god or anything, I just want to get better is all. All musicians want to do their best at what they do. It’s pretty normal.

A lot of people refuses to acknowledge this, but it’s nice to have people who actually listen to my music whether it’s covers or originals. I’ve been getting feedback from people who aren’t even musicians at all which is even more amazing to me. That’s the type of listeners you want to attract to your music, ya know? You don’t really want to get feedback to your music from other musicians. You want to get feedback from people who are non-musicians. People who know nothing about being a musician… those are the kind of fans you want to have. If your only audience are nothing but musicians then you’re doing something wrong.

I do know I have some fans & supporters out there. It’s just that a lot of people refuses to acknowledge it. Some will call me names like “delusional” and all that crap, but I don’t make things up. I do know that I have a following with my music and people followed me for years. It’s them that inspires me to keep going in music; therefor, I’m itching for a new batch of original songs. I do love performing covers but I love songwriting too, and I want to get back into songwriting again.

I do have “fans” which is awesome… it’s why I’m dying to release my first album sometime ’cause it’s a longtime dream of mine. I want to do a full band rock n’ roll album. I’m tired of the acoustic thing.

It’s nice to have people that actually like my music now. Hard work pays off — it really does. If the Capital Region music scene doesn’t want to acknowledge that I have fans then that’s fine. Let them believe what they want to believe. People like my music and that makes me happy enough.

Thank you to all the fans… you’re the reason why I keep doing what I’m doing. Playing music for you. There will be new originals sometime in the future.

RIP: Tom Petty 1950 – 2017

I  didn’t want to post this tribute/obit to Tom Petty right away ’cause I was waiting for official confirmation on what was going to happen to him. Yesterday evening, there was a big debate in social media on whether or not Tom Petty was dead. Rumours were swirling social networking that he died after being hospitalized due to being in full  cardiac arrest. The media rushed in to announced his death without official confirmation which helped sparked the debate on whether he was dead then the media retracted the death reports after TMZ stated he was still clinging to life. Later on that evening, Tom’s manager and family confirmed his death and the Heartbreakers officially announced it themselves on their FB page.

Like most, this is a heartbreaker for me too. Tom Petty was a hero of mine musically. He was a big influence in my own singing and songwriting. Yeah, Tom was a hitmaker for sure. He wrote a lot of great hits, but he has tons of other great obscure songs that were never played on the radio. Do you listen to Tom Petty for the hits or for his albums? Well, I listened to him for his albums ’cause he was a phenomenal songwriter. I’ve listened to his music for years. Heard every studio album he did. Shamefully, I never got to see him live in concert when I always wanted to.

Tom Petty got his start in music when he formed his first band called, Mudcrutch. The band Mudcrutch signed a record deal, but it didn’t go so well for them ’cause their first single bombed in sales. They were forced to break-up, and this lead to Tom Petty forming the Heartbreakers later. The Heartbreakers released 13 albums with Tom, and Tom released 3 solo albums. Tom also did two records with the Travelling Wilburys (a supergroup he formed with Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Jeff Lynne), and then Tom reunited Mudcrutch not too long ago and they released two albums together. Yes, The Mudcrutch album, Mudcrutch 2 was Tom’s final project before he passed. Tom was a pretty hard working musician over the years of his life. Making records and touring pretty heavily; that was pretty much all he did.

I had great respect for him immensely. He was part of the reason I wanted to write my own songs. If you want to know more about Tom Petty’s life and career, watch the “Running Down a Dream documentary on Netflix. Tom Petty was a rock n’ roll genius for sure… everything he did was so good.

Will Tom’s record labels release one more Tom Petty album whether it will be with the Heartbreakers or his solo stuff? We’ll wait and see. I’m sure we will get one more Tom Petty studio album. I’m sure the Heartbreakers are gonna search in their vault ’cause I’m sure the band have plenty of songs that they threw away. They’ll do something for him.

Enjoy my Tom Petty cover tribute video below where I cover the song, “You Wreck Me”. I’m thinking of doing a few more Petty covers too.

RIP Tom and thanks for the kickass music.

Stephen King’s “Gerald’s Game” on Netflix was surprisingly very good, definitely worth watching if you’re a fan!

Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game is one of my favorite books of his. It’s in the top 5 really. It’s a great book, and finally a movie has been made of the book exclusive for Netflix streaming. I watched Gerald’s Game last night, and I was surprised of how great it actually was. The movie was just as creepy as the book. I was also astounded at how faithful the movie was from the book ’cause it was pretty close.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3748172/

Is it just me or is Hollywood getting much better with Stephen King adaptations to film? It seems so. Most S.K. movies have been pretty much garbage except the good films I’ve seen were: The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Kubrick’s The Shining, Carrie (the original) and Misery. Then here comes new Stephen King movies for the big screen: The Dark Tower and IT which I thought both were really good. Now here comes Gerald’s Game for Netflix which I was impressed by. I think Hollywood’s goal is to try to improve S.K. films which is why they’re trying to remake a lot of them.

Keep in mind, though, S.K.’s The Stand is getting a big screen remake next, and that would probably turn out real good too.

Yeah, Stephen King is a liberal and he’s anti-Trump, but I don’t give a shit. I don’t care about an artists politics, it’s the entertainment I care about. I’ll still support Stephen King ’cause he’s a hero of mine. King was the one who got me into reading books and writing of my own. Yeah, King’s political views are whacky but he’s still a good writer.

Back to Gerald’s Game though, it makes me want to read that book again and I will. I may even re-watch the movie on Netflix tonight ’cause it was that damn good. You should check it out too if you’re a Netflix subscriber. Most of Netflix’s original movies and TV shows are garbage but they finally released something good.

One thing that the NFL “Take The Knee” thing proved is that liberals hate America, something that we’ve known all along!

It’s no surprise to me really that liberals and NeverTrumpers defending the NFL’s right to “Take The Knee”, or defend their right to refuse to stand for “The National Anthem/American Flag”. Over the years, liberals have shown plenty of signs that they hate America but it hasn’t been proven until now. Liberals are now out of the closet as “Anti-America”. Liberals raging against President Trump’s comments on twitter to all this just shows liberals’ hate for America even more. Liberals showing their true colors. Liberals making a fool of themselves.

All of this is incredible and sad at the same time. The media and liberals trying to make it acceptable to hate America which is what they’re trying to do. The left’s mission: “Make it cool to hate America, make it bad to love America”. Notice what’s going on here? Liberals love others who disrespect America, but they show all kinds of hate toward conservatives who love America. That’s a big sign that liberals hate America ’cause they’re always hating on those American loving patriots like me. Another clue to tell that liberals hate America is that they always side with left-wing politicians who wants to make America look bad like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, etc.

Yep, liberals hating America finally proven, indeed. Thanks to President Trump for exposing all the America haters.. It’s real sad what professional sports have become. Ah well, fuck the NFL… they’re nothing but drunks, steroid junkies and woman beaters anyways.

I will always love America. I don’t care what the haters think. Love my country and my home. Get pissed off all you want to but I will always stand for the flag.
