  • Global Peace Day September 21 2015 Holly Stephey Red Velvet Media Blogtalk Radio

    in Pop Culture

    The International Day of Peace Vigil is a global undertaking that requires the efforts of many people of all faiths and beliefs to be successful. Red Velvet Media encourages you to support the United Nations' call for a full day of global ceasefire on 21 September by observing the day in spiritual contemplation for peace, global ceasefire and nonviolence with other members of your community and/or the broader interfaith community.


    Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.


    The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” which aims to highlight the importance of all segments of society to work together to strive for peace. The work of the United Nations would not be possible without the initial partnerships that were active in its creation and the thousands of partnerships each year between governments, civil society, the private sector, faith-based groups and other non-governmental organizations that are needed to support the Organization in achieving its future goals.


    The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly to coincide with its opening session, which was held annually on the third Tuesday of September. The first Peace Day was observed in September 1982.


    The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.In the words of John Lennon, Give Peace a chance.

    Fred Goodman's newest Book; Allen Klein,The Man Who Bailed Out the Beatles...

    in Pop Culture

    Fred Goodman is a New York-based author and reporter. His books include The Mansion on the Hill, which was a New York Times Notable Book and received the Ralph J. Gleason Award for the best music book of the year. His work has appeared in Rolling Stone, where he was an editor, as well as the New York Times and many national magazines. Allen Klein was like no one the music industry had seen before. The hard-nosed business manager became infamous for allegedly catalyzing the Beatles’ breakup and robbing the Rolling Stones, but the truth is both more complex and more fascinating. As the manager of the Stones and then the Beatles—not to mention Sam Cooke, Donovan, the Kinks, and numerous other performers—he taught young soon-to-be legends how to be businessmen as well as rock stars. In so doing, Klein made millions for his clients and changed music forever. But Klein was as merciless with his clients as he was with anyone else, earning himself an outsize reputation for villainy that has gone unchallenged until now. Through unique, unprecedented access to Klein’s archives, veteran music journalist Fred Goodman tells the full story of how the Beatles broke up, how the Stones achieved the greatest commercial success in rock history, and how the music business became what it is today.

    Wendy James new solo LP ’The Price Of The Ticket’

    in Music

    Wendy James new solo LP ’The Price Of The Ticket’ recorded in NYC, mixed in Berkeley CA. The players on this album are a bona-fide line-up from all-time Punk and New Wave bands… Lenny Kaye (The Patti Smith Group) on guitar, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) on bass, James Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) on drums, with tracks 12 and 13 recorded by Wendy James and James Williamson (Iggy and The Stooges), Steve Mackay (Iggy and The Stooges), James Sclavunos (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds). All songs are written and produced by Wendy James, tracks 12 and 13 are cover versions of songs written Fred ‘Sonic’ Smith (MC5/Sonic’s Rendezvous Band) and Bob Dylan respectively.Wendy James has evolved in music legacy to where her first band Transvision Vamp is an iconic and collectable favorite and her new music is constantly a push for ever more current attitude and talent, followed and bought by proceeding generations of Alt-Rock n Roll fans the world over. Cited by Miley Cyrus as her original pin-up and at the same time being on par with Patti Smith as an uncompromising artist, songwriter and musician. Originally from London, now resident of NYC, she has achieved what few can or have: longevity and a forward motion trajectory in New Wave Garage Rock. The release of ’The Price Of The Ticket’ will include all formats: LP Vinyl, CD and Digital Download.

    Indie Cafe & Red Velvet Media ; Eilon Paz, Dust & Grooves !

    in Entertainment

     


    Dust & Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting is an inside look into the world of vinyl record collectors in the most intimate of environments—their record rooms. It all started out several years ago as nothing more than a way for photographer Eilon Paz to make use of his idle hours. Adrift in Brooklyn after emigrating from Israel, Eilon—a record collector on the side—thought it might be fun to start taking photos of people whose record collections were both larger and weirder than his own.


    Adopting this as his personal project, he began traveling the world, from Australia to Cuba and Argentina to Ghana, in pursuit of intriguing and memorable subjects. Unearthing the very soul of the vinyl community, the assembly of portraits he created quickly turned into the Dust & Grooves website.


    In the summer of 2012, Eilon launched a Kickstarter campaign that funded his road trip to shoot collectors throughout the American heartland, and since then, the project has been embraced by many friends and supporters who have volunteered to work with Eilon along the way. This year, Dust & Grooves expands even further, complementing the website’s cloud with a physical book that profiles over 130 vinyl collectors with photographic essays and in-depth interviews.


    Dust & Grooves has engaged and connected the underground community of record collectors. As well as becoming a go-to place for vinyl lovers, it maintains the integrity and history of vinyl, as well as the musical heritage that goes along with every record in these collections. As technology moves forward and many music formats go digital, Eilon’s endeavor helps keep the rich, warm, analog life of vinyl spinning.
