Posted under Entertainment,Music by Alison Deloy on Friday 19 November 2010 at 5:19 pm

It was a scene that was all to popular, at more movie theaters than one can count. In places like Bibb County, Georgia over 2,000 fans stood in line for hours upon hours to get their chance to see the midnight screening of what expects to be one of the Holiday season’s biggest movie. The scene was the same in Annapolis, Maryland where over 1,100 did the exact same thing. The respective theaters were using every screen they had to show the film, anywhere from 10, to 16, to even 24 screen theaters all giving Hogwarts fans what they wanted to see.

Fans young and old, from the age of 13-73 were in line and waiting to experience a movie they said seemed to take ages to arrive. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows is also the seventh and final installment in the tremendously popular fiction series. “It was only July of last year that we saw The Half-Blood Prince but it seems like an entire lifetime has gone by waiting for this one to come out. I don’t know how I am going to manage for the 2nd part that comes out next year.” said Thomas Crownsworth, a 21 year old college student at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL.

The Deathly Hollows has been broken into 2 parts with the first being released November 19, 2010 and the second part, and final chapter of the film and the Harry Potter series itself hitting theaters over 6 months from the first portion, July 15, 2011.

Personal Secrets & Scandals Made Public by Story Peeps Secret Society

Posted under Entertainment by Administrator on Saturday 11 September 2010 at 12:00 am

– Secret Societies are known to keep secrets, but Story Peeps Secret Society does the exact opposite, they share member secrets publicly! Why do members join this Secret Society? Most join to talk about their colorful past anonymously. Story Peeps is essentially a form of public therapy from Attorney’s to Soccer Moms.

Story Peeps Secret Society started out as a medium for the creator (Goes by SP Master username) to vent his own personal secrets, which he carried around for years, without the comfort of being able to expose them to someone else, because of his trust issues.

“The problem is that it’s hard for me to trust people, because I have been stabbed in the back and betrayed countless times. And after years and years of walking around with this baggage of personal secrets, I kept thinking about how great it would be, if I could vent them anonymously and help people who are going through similar situations. This year I got my chance after the economy forced me to close my business down, and I began pursuing my lifelong dream to share my incredible life with the world. I predict that Story Peeps Secret Society will help countless people from various walks of life, by finally giving them a medium to be themselves without the fear of being judged by their family, friends, and co-workers. Story Peeps gave me the opportunity to move forward with my life by giving me a medium to rid myself of the guilt that I have carried for decades.  I cannot wait until the site celebrates its 10 year anniversary, because by then it will have truly made a significant impact on society, judging by its current membership growth and online discussions. ”

Like many other dreams that started from the aftermath of a disaster, Story Peeps has the potential to help just about anyone who harbors deep personal secrets by providing them with the ability to clean the skeletons out of their closet, and talk about their scandals anonymously with other members.

“Just think about the freedom of talking about the things that you are so tired of keeping to yourself, and finally communicating with other people about it in complete anonymity.”  SP Master

SP Master told us that the site/secret society will remain free to explore, but that may change depending on what members vote on in the future. If the site does convert to a paid membership site, secret society members prior to the conversion will remain free for life.

# # #

Story Peeps Secret Society formed in mid February of 2010. It achieved a Google PageRank 3 in less than 2 months, and there are over 400 registered society members as of this press release.

Paul Anka warns the new generation.

Posted under Entertainment by Administrator on Thursday 26 August 2010 at 7:55 am

– The former teen idol Paul Anka wants to have a say about the new generation teen idol, especially when media compared him to the new icon, Justin Bieber. If the public sees a resemblance between the two singers, to Mr. Anka, there is no resemblance at all…

When Usher first showed his dance moves, people would compare him to the late Michael Jackson. Then Celine Dion arrived and was considered as the white “Whitney Houston”… now Justin Bieber is admired by millions of fans and everyone sees him as a new Paul Anka. The 69 year old singer stays current but laughed over those recent comparisons and has his opinion on the matter. Indeed, he doesn’t guarantee a long lasting career to the Usher prot?g?. Having been an entertainer for years, Anka knows how to separate an artist who will be a fading wonder from an artist who’s built for a long and promising career. According to him, a career shouldn’t be just a one-moment phenomenon but rather a brand that would survive through ages and generations. He fears for Justin Bieber a career that will soon dwindle much like the former teen idol Donny Osmond. We feel however that Justin has what it takes to last. He possess the stage confidence and has the hip-hop moves that have captured the hearts of his fans. He also has a team who manage his image, and finally he is connected to his fans daily through social networks, further becoming a part of their lives. These factors have made Justin Bieber one of the biggest headline lines attractions of 2010. But Paul Anka repeats again: ” Popularity is a goal and Longevity, its secret “.

Similarly he’s pointing at the Lady Gaga’s mania, but never felt attracted to her style. “I listen to Lady Gaga lyrics, what the hell happened, the lyrics make no goddamed sense. All she does is talk about sex, but the lyrics sound like they’re written by a 10 year old.” Paul Anka belongs to another generation and his reluctance towards Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga is understandable but hopefully his advice didn’t fall on deaf ears. Well Mr. Bieber, Miss Gaga, remember you’ve been warned, don’t let the sudden fame fool you, play with it and make it last.

If you are someone who sings to Justin Bieber in your room, a fan who keeps humming the “Alejandro” melody or a nostalgic ex-groupie of Paul Anka, don’t wait for the last call to get your seats, check out the website

To see Paul Anka …

Featured artists are The Kuss Quartet, Caramoor Virtuosi, and The Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
