Grammy Winner Coolio & WWE legend Virgil join Cherie DeVille for the 2020 run for president

Los Angeles, CA, Sep-7-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Sporting a doctorate on her resume, a well-spoken, opinionated candidate has emerged in the 2020 run for president. With Donald Trump having opened the door to public figures attaining the highest office, DeVille has announced her intention to run for President. She’s enlisted Coolio to serve as Vice-President due to his rise from poverty to a gangster’s paradise, and having toured every state in this land, and dozens of countries throughout the world speaking to people along the way – together they know how to fix America.

DeVille announces her presidential bid during a 7+ minute press conference which introduces her team as she recounts her views for change. Coolio is introduced as the presidential hopeful’s running mate and is a strong proponent for universal healthcare, hoping to roll out CoolioCare to the masses.
Chere DeVille speaks eloquently on the broken promises of the current administration and goes so far as to touch on the travel ban, healthcare as well as the disastrous situation that Trump has left the world in with the United State’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord.

International models @Khloe and @MissKennedyS bring the millennial vote along with substantial experience from travelling the world and speaking to the people. Summers, is also a third year med student who has very real concepts on how to improve the healthcare system and will work closely with the Vice President on CoolioCare. Canadian born Khloe Terae hopes to cozy up with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in her role as head of Foreign Relations.

Former WWE legend Virgil is the man behind the woman. The former bodyguard for the Million Dollar Man will reprise his role on a much grander scale. Virgil has been pegged with being the personal bodyguard for the Presidential hopeful, along with being head of security. Having broken breadsticks at Olive Garden with Donald Trump, Virgil has keen insight in the current administration, and can help transition when Cherie DeVille captures the White House.

Norwegian rock legend Gudny Aspaas to launch her new album in Oslo on April 5 at the Rockefeller Music Hall

OSLO, Norway, 07-Jan-2017 — /EPR ENTERTAINMENT NEWS/ — Tickets for the concert are now on sale, and can be ordered through www.gudnyaspaas.com which also features samples from “No Stranger”. The concert will also feature tracks from Gudny’s back catalog.

“The concert and album are the culmination of several months of work – and I’m thrilled with how “No Stranger” has turned out,” said Gudny. “I was lucky to work with some incredibly talented musicians and a wonderful team, and the result is, I think, the best work I’ve ever produced. I’m really looking forward to being back on stage, and I can’t wait for people to hear the new album in April.”

“No Stranger” is representative of the eclecticism of Gudny’s extensive career in music, with all of her – and her musicians’ – many talents represented in tracks such as the vocally complex “Galactic Child” (which allows her to show off her distinctive voice) through the eloquent piano/vocal piece “Hello Again” to the classic rock ‘n’ roll of “You Can Run”. From haunting simplicity to wall of sound, “No Stranger” fully demonstrates the breadth and depth of Gudny’s musical genius and her pioneering versatility as a composer and performer.

Gudny represented Norway four times in the Eurovision Song Contest, and fronted iconic progressive rock group Ruphus in the 1970s, returning for a reunion in the 1990s and again in 2010 – also at the Rockefeller Music Hall. Ruphus’s “New Born Day” was voted as one of the top 50 best Norwegian albums ever made. She has also released numerous solo singles and albums.

Originally from Meråker but now living in Oslo, Gudny comes from a musical family in which almost every member could play an instrument. Singing shyly for her family from the age of four, she and three friends formed “The Singing Goats” at the age of 12, supporting their vocals with guitars and tambourine. Having won a music competition, she released her first single in 1969.

Gudny is also a supremely talented creative artist, working mainly in silver jewellery. She graduated from the Statens Kunst og Håndverksskole (State Academy of Craft and Art Industry) and now has her “Silverland” gallery/workshop in the centre of Oslo near the Slottsparken.

Aussie Mobster, Aurea Morrisey, Holds Hollywood Hostage

Australian born actress, Aurea Morrisey, has just finished shooting indie feature film “So You Want To Be A Gangster?” in Los Angeles. The film by Mexican born Director, Alex Kahuam, has high hopes after his short film version was accepted into Cannes Film Festival this year.

Aurea plays volatile Christina, riding her sexuality to pursue a capricious agenda involving a deadly cocktail of guns, drugs, and ambition. When asked of her experience playing Christina, Aurea laughed, “Within the first 10 minutes of arriving on set, I had to pash the lead red-headed Mexican character, pull a gun on someone, and then got shot a gruesome death’.

With more than 15 years in the industry, Aurea’s acting skills were polished at the New York Film Academy in 2013. This lead to television roles in MSNBC’s “Heist”, VH1’s “Candidly Nicole”, and several feature films including Turkish film “Yarmani” with Paris Hilton and “Second Coming of Christ” with Tom Sizemore and Sally Kirkland.

Ms. Morrisey has also commenced work playing a talent agent on a comedic television pilot and web-series, by Steven A. Davis, titled “Two19 Game Night” which follows the lives of Five creative (and some not-so-creative) friends as they come together to relive their bizarre and often horrific dates that have occurred during the week.

Aurea plans a short break between Hollywood hold up’s when she plans to return to Australia to spend time surfing with the dolphins. She’s looking forward to becoming a Godmother to her best friend’s first born child and some springtime fun with family and friends in September.

Michigan-Based Indie Film Tops $10,000 Kickstarter Goal in Under Two Days

Star Trek – Horizon, a feature-length independent film currently in production in southeast Michigan, launched their immensely successful Kickstarter campaign over Easter weekend, in an effort to raise funds necessary for completion of their film. In just 32 hours, the campaign earned an impressive $10,000 toward making the ambitious project a reality. The Kickstarter campaign runs through May 19, while the completed film is expected to premiere by the end of 2014.

Starring Paul Lang (Captain Harrison Hawke), Marc Bowers (Commander Jackson Gates),Ryan Webber (Commander Francis Brookes), and Callie Bussell (Lieutenant T’mar), Horizonfollows Captain Harrison Hawke and the crew of the Earth vessel NX-04 Discovery. In 2160, the Coalition of Planets, a young alliance of worlds led by Earth, is at war with the Romulan Empire. Desperate for a chance to gain the upper hand in the war, the Coalition forms an alliance with T’mar, a Romulan defector, in the hope that she can provide valuable intelligence on her former masters.

From the film’s Kickstarter page: “It is our goal to create a film that is worthy of the franchise and can close out the story threads left hanging after the untimely cancellation of Enterprise (the final Trek TV series) in 2005. However, if you have not seen any of the previous franchise films or TV series, this close tie to Enterprise is not cause to worry. While this film will close out story threads that began in that series, it will also certainly tell an original story and be able to stand alone as a science fiction feature film.”

Filmmaker Tommy Kraft, the prodigious 22-year-old Albion College graduate behind Horizon, hails from Spring Arbor, a small town just southwest of Jackson, Michigan. He founded Project [N] ReSource, a production company behind numerous short films, in 2005. Kraft cut his filmmaking teeth on those short films, he says, and they prepared him for the challenges of making his first independent feature. With Horizon, he has taken on a subject grand in its scope and execution, yet extremely close to his heart. Of the project, Kraft says he intends “only to use my skills to show my love for a franchise that has been an endless source of inspiration for me, not only professionally but personally as well.”

About Project [N] ReSource:
Project [N] ReSource was co-founded in late December of 2005 by Tommy Kraft. Currently based in Jackson, Michigan, the company focuses on the production of live action films and some machinima.

The London Film Festival – one of the largest and most important film festivals in the world – has announced its 58 th festival will run from 8th to 19th October 2014 at venues across the city. The festival, which is organised by the British Film Institute, has grown from strength to strength in recent years and is massive draw for film fans as well those who work in the industry. Anybody planning to attend the 2014 festival should visit LondonTown.com to ensure they have the pick of cheap London hotels, as the website contains the latest room rates for thousands of hotels in the capital.

Clare Stewart, the BFI’s Head of Cinemas and Festivals, has helped build on the striking success of its recent festivals. The 2013 Festival was a highlight of the international calendar and the London Film Festival now rivals Cannes, Berlin and Venice as the most important festivals in Europe. In 2013, there were 22 world premieres, 13 International and 29 European premieres. Many of the LFF’s gala presentations later emerged as the year’s most celebrated films, including four of the five BAFTA nominations for Best Film –12 Years a Slave and Captain Phillips both of which had European Premieres at LFF, whilstGravity and Philomena had UK premieres in high profile positions. There are also 16 films with Oscar nominations from the LFF 2013 programme.

Taj Pabla – Giving Back to the Community This Holiday Season

You may know Taj Pabla as a famous model and actor, but there is much more to the story than that. Taj Pabla feels extremely blessed to have enjoyed so much success, and he is as committed to giving back to the community as he is to his craft.

That means that gorgeous model and actor Taj Pabla will be working hard this holiday season not only on the screen and on the runway but in the homeless shelters as well. This year Taj Pabla will be celebrating the true spirit of Thanksgiving by helping to serve dinner to the homeless. He will also be celebrating the spirit of the giving by donating toys to children in need. Taj knows that there is nothing as special as a child’s face on Christmas morning, and he is proud to play a small part in putting those smiles on the faces of children who might otherwise not get a gift this holiday season.

Taj Pabla puts it all in perspective by recounting how blessed he has been. As Taj says “I look around and I have everything. So why should I be selfish? So this year instead of getting I am going to give to the needy. I am serving Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless and working on putting smiles on kids’ faces at Christmas by donating toys.”

Taj Pabla updated his Facebook status on November 22 to share his holiday plans with his fans and urge others to follow in his footsteps. As Taj said in his status update – “This holiday season I’m going to help the people in need. So this Thanksgiving I’ll be serving the homeless. I am thankful for everything I have. I know sometime I could be selfish, but this year I’m going to do things from the heart and help the less fortunate.”

So just what will Taj Pabla be getting in return for his charitable endeavors this holiday season? Taj will be getting something much more valuable than mere baubles and presents he will be getting the joy that only comes from helping others. He will enjoy the warmth and satisfaction of knowing he has helped put smiles on the faces of children and a full meal in the stomachs of those who might otherwise go hungry this holiday season.

In fact, Taj Pabla is getting so much satisfaction from helping others that he is not about to stop. He has much more to give – and he can’t wait to give back to the community and help those who have blessed his life. Taj is looking forward to launching a new non-profit devoted to helping kids in poor countries get the education they need to enjoy a better and more fulfilling life.

The capital catches fire with Hunger Party Games

As London prepares to host the world premiere of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, eager fans can get in on the action with The Robin Collective’s brilliantly bonkers Hunger Party Games. LondonTown.com talks exclusively to the events and experimental food company’s founder Robin Fegan to find out what the nefarious Game Makers have in store.

Please can you tell us a bit more about the Hunger Party Games.

Robin Fegan: In celebration of the release of the second Hunger Games film, The Robin Collective and Indeedy Incorporated are holding a unique party at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club on 15 November. [The singer, presenter, DJ and] our own queen of the Capitol Jess Indeedy will reap contestants to fight in this year’s Hunger Party Games.

Will the contestants be shot at with arrows and forced to forage for their own food?

RF: Not exactly. Every ticket holder’s name will be put into the reaping. Throughout the night, people will be selected to compete in murderous parlour games, and cannon blasts will salute the fallen.

In between games, the victors will be celebrated and there will be dancing. Because this is a Quarter Quell, the last game of the night will see all the victors compete one last time.

Yikes, can you give us a hint as to what the murderous party games might involve?

The Game Makers are currently busy coming up with the most devious and evil games imaginable like Musical Killing Chairs and Pass the Parcel… of death!

How should contestants dress?

They are encouraged to wear outfits representative of their district. For example, glasses without lenses for the Shoreditch district, or obnoxious red trousers for the Chelsea districts. The reaping will be random so we won’t favour any districts.

What made you decide to hold a Hunger Games-themed event?

We’re big fans of the books and Katniss’ struggle against the Capitol is very much a metaphor for our struggle against non-Hunger Games-themed events.

How would you sum up the event in 10 words?

RF: ‘May the odds be ever in your favour,’ Caesar Flickerman.

The Hunger Party Games will be held at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club on 15 November from 9pm to 2am. Tickets are available from www.therobincollective.co.uk.
Competition: Win a set of tickets and the complete book trilogy

We are giving away two sets of tickets to the Hunger Party Games along with copies of the complete book trilogy. To enter, visit www.therobincollective.co.uk and then email us to let us know how many partying tracker jackers there are on the website.

The competition runs from 22nd October to 5th November 2013. Email your answer to competitions@londontown.com, along with your name and contact details. To be eligible to enter, you must be aged 18 years or over. Winners will be selected at random.

Bruce Springsteen encabezará el Hard Rock Calling 2013

El Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, en pleno corazón del parque olímpico de Stratford (Londres), albergará su primer gran evento desde los Juegos del año pasado. Hard Rock Calling, uno de los festivales más importantes de Londres, regresa este año con un cartel realmente atractivo.

De este modo, el festival se traslada al este de Londres tras siete años celebrándose en Hyde Park. Para celebrar la ocasión, la edición de este año contará con un gran elenco de leyendas del rock durante el fin de semana del 29 y 30 de junio.

La sola presencia de Bruce Springsteen y la E Street Band en el cartel de este año debería ser suficiente para que los fans del rock pongan a punto sus guitarras imaginarias, pero este año el Hard Rock Calling subirá el volumen unos decibelios con un cartel que también incluye a Paul Weller, Kasabian, Alabama Shakes y The Black Crowes. No es de extrañar que este festival atraiga a más de 150.000 melómanos a la capital cada año.

El Hard Rock Calling se situará en el recinto ocupado el verano pasado por la pista de hockey. De este modo se trata de reconvertir el legado post-olímpico del Queen Elizabeth Park en un flamante nuevo espacio para eventos de este tipo en la capital.

Aquellos que planeen una visita al este de Londres no tendrán problema en encontrar alojamiento en esta rejuvenecida parte de la ciudad. Además, el portal de reservas de hoteles y eventos en Londres más importante de Internet, LondonTown.com, ofrece en su página una gran selección de hoteles en Londres a precios reducidos durante el fin de semana del festival.

The RE London Shoreditch hotel está situado a 3 kilómetros del parque olímpico y ofrece además excelentes conexiones con el centro de la capital. Reservando a través de LondonTown.com se obtiene hasta un 68% de descuento en habitaciones con dos camas individuales, con precios desde las 74 libras.

Por su parte, el Holiday Inn Express Stratford, sito a sólo 11 minutos del Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, ofrece ofertas muy similares: hasta un 63% de descuento disponible a través de LondonTown.com, con precios desde las 91 libras.

Michael Bublé ofrecerá diez actuaciones en el O2 Arena

El canta-autor canadiense Michael Bublé volverá al Reino Unido a finales de junio para instalarse en el O2 Arena de Londres durante 10 días. Estas actuaciones, desde el domingo 30 de junio hasta el sábado 13 de julio, será la vez que ningún cantante masculino actúe tanto tiempo, solo excedido por Prince.

El cantante galardonado con premios Grammy y número uno en las principales listas, interpretará temas de su último álbum “To Be Loved”, además de los clásicos de su amplio catálogo de álbums; “It’s Time” (2005), “Call Me Irresponsible” (2007), “Crazy Love” (2009) y “Christmas” (2011). Bublé ha vendido más de 30 millones de discos en todo el mundo y esta es la oportunidad perfecta de presenciar al melódico cantante en vivo con temas como “Haven’t Met You Yet”, “Some Kind of Wonderful” y “Me and Mrs Jones”.

En lo referente al auditorio para tal estrella, el O2 Arena de Londres es realmente la opción número uno. Como pieza central del reformado Millennium Dome, el O2 es el primer auditorio de música de Londres construido para tal efecto, y tiene un aforo de 23.000. Durante estas fechas Bublé hará historia al intentar igualar previas actuaciones continuas de las leyendas de la música. Prince alcanzó el récord de 21 noches en el 2007, el fallecido Michael Jackson iba a hacer un maratón de 50 días en el 2009 pero no pudo llevarlo a cabo, y Roger Waters actuó seis noches como parte de su gira “The Wall Live” del 2011.

Encontrar un Londres hoteles para alojarse después del concierto no supondrá ningún problema con las ofertas que LondonTown.com tiene junto al O2. Ahora se puede reservar una doble con un fabuloso descuento del 64% en el Radisson Blu Edwardian New Providence Wharf desde 217 libras la noche. Si se busca algo más módico, el Ibis London Docklands, a unos diez minutos del auditorio, ofrece dobles con dos camas desde tan solo 73 libras la noche (incluye un descuento del 33%).

Each creator in the EYES IN™ Magazine/MagBook™ is interviewed about their life, profession, thirst for innovation, inspirational milestones and how their work evolves or revolutionizes the world over time. Snippets of these interviews include:

EYES IN™ Music: Ryan Egan and The Ugly Club- Indie music band
“I think music and art becomes innovative at the point of complete immersion in all of your influences, where you aren’t always consciously pulling inspiration from any one thing but from all of your collective experiences. The Ugly Club may not be a soul band but no doubt I’m always channeling some Prince.”

EYES IN™ Health: Patricia Ruiz-FlyGym- Practitioner and owner of Moving Strength Studio
“The hammocks provide a sense of support for students who would not normally be able to do certain moves due to injury or lack of strength. We have kept several people out of back surgery by doing Pilates, stretching and balance work on foam rollers. I have seen people with neuropathy in the leg return to the ski slopes through Pilates work.”

EYES IN™ Technology: Reed Timmer- Meteorologist and Storm Chaser
“My mom always said if you do what you love for a living, and follow your passion, you’ll never truly ‘work’ a day in your life. That’s true for the storm chasing part, but it sure does take a substantial amount of work and major sacrifices to make a living out of it.”

EYES IN™ Artists: Ivan Markovic- Artist and Sculptor
“On Valentine’s Day, 2002, I quickly improvised a flower with paper taken from a sketchbook. Thus, through an expression of love, I discovered my passion for sculpting with paper.”

Furthermore, Issue 18 of EYES IN™ Magazine/MagBook™ engages readers in stories about famous fashion designer Tory Burch whose original designs are easy to wear and versatile enough for the wardrobes of working divas, soccer moms and socialites, about culinary arts creator Nigella Lawson whose cooking style is larger than life and about the brilliant, innovative architect Zaha Hadid who showcases her latest exhilarating architectural designs.
