Classic Rock Star Rhett May Has A Story To Tell In His New Song The Violence Of Ice

Classic rock star, Rhett May, has a story to tell in his new song; “The Violence Of Ice”. He brings his many cultural influences and personal experiences to the table, and I must say, as a fan of classic rock it makes for quite a musical experience! He manages to discuss his life, his world views and his stance on drugs in almost all his songs in a way that doesn’t make you feel like an artist is imposing upon you. It’s quite refreshing to listen to and I doubt you will have anything to complain about. You can check out his new anti-drug anthem “Violence of Ice” on iTunes.

Calvin Harris Fans Can’t Pass Up The Chance To Hear EDM Superstar Grace Valerie Over And Over

Calvin Harris fans can’t pass up the chance to hear EDM superstar Grace Valerie over and over. Valerie is the next big thing that EDM fans don’t even know that they are craving! Her talent speaks for itself, and the effort that she puts into her music and her artistry shows in every instance. It is a lot of pressure to live up to when someone says you can be both genre defying and uniquely original, but if any artist is up to the challenge it has to be Grace Valerie. Her previous single was No. 1 “Most Popular” MTV video and reached No. 17 on Billboard’s club chart and her highly anticipated new summer song “Magic” just dropped on June 2, 2015. Initially discovered by the Grammy-award winning producer and former American Idol judge Randy Jackson in 2010, Grace Valerie has since been creating music that has millions of YouTube viewers and Twitter followers raving for more. I watched her perform at her listening party for her single “Magic” and I have got to say; she lives up to every bit of hype about her!

You can preview and purchase “Magic” on iTunes and Amazon. To stay up to date, check her out on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and on her official website at www.gracevalerie.com.

Mass Text Singer Tay Allyn Talks to Tim Conway Jr and Gets Mentioned By Joel McHale While Her Viral Video Reaches 1,000,000 Views

Image

Pop recording artist Tay Allyn’s latest video “Mass Text,” a catchy song and equally attention grabbing video about being left out of a mass text party invite, instantly went viral on YouTube within a week of being posted.  Now, it’s already reached over 1,000,000 views!  The big questions on everyone’s mind remain: “is this a joke?”, “Does she know this is about the worst video EVER?”  “Is she channeling Rebecca Black?”, “She’s not serious, is she?”  A quick look at the comments posted on Tay’s video and it’s clear that many YouTube users love to hate on Tay and her knack for creating pop music that’s like “Ke$ha without the sex, and Lady Gaga without the avant garde.”  Tay delivers a sassy yet relatable attitude while singing about the mundane things in everyday life. 

Tay was on CNN’s Showbiz Tonight less than one week after posting the video. Everyone on Showbiz Tonight wanted to find out where this girl came from and tried to answer all the questions and get to the bottom of it!  Tay was also recently featured on Tim Conway Jr.’s Podcast and she’s been “critiqued” by The Soup’s Joel McHale.  See what the comedian had to say about Tay here.  Tay was also featured on LiveStarringYou.com.

Here’s what we’ve learned from her recent interviews…Growing up Tay was not the most popular girl – she was called worse than “chubby” and wore an eye patch for medical purposes from the time she was 4 until well into middle school. However, after overcoming the adversity and the bullying and gaining confidence in herself as she journeyed through graduating the University of Southern California and addressing the commencement audience of over 5,000, she has completely changed her image and (late) blossomed to become a beautiful confident woman.  Afraid of being bullied now?  Not this girl!  Bring it on! 

Like it or hate it, she’s clearly is making a name for herself.  Question is, what else has she got?  And will it be something more viable than this?  Or is she a one hit wonder that will disappear into obscurity.  Guess we’ll have to wait and see!

You can watch Tay’s Showbiz Tonight Interview here.

Looking for London Business Travel List for Dining , Museum Visits and Things to Do this Season

Image

With the right entertainment and dining guide, on-the-go business travelers to London can explore the city between meetings and after the business day ends.  If you have a morning free before you head off to your meetings, you should enjoy an authentic English breakfast at The Wolseley. It offers an award-winning full English breakfast starting as early as 7 am for early risers (or those not yet adjusted to London time). The breakfast menu features a viennoiserie basket, the famous The English (eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato, black pudding and mushrooms), and lighter fare like grapefruit or granola. Reservations are recommended as this event is very popular amongst the business set during the week. Then you can soak up the city by going to some of the most controversial and intriguing contemporary British art at the Saatchi Gallery. Located in a 70,000 square-foot space in Chelsea, exhibitions of sculpture, painting, photography, video and installations keep the eye and mind engaged. After that, you can stop by BuckinghamPalace and try and see the queen!

To make sure you’re ready for your eventful morning in London, why not indulge yourself to a relaxing spa day at your hotel after your flight? It can erase those bleary eyes and disoriented state of being from jumping through time zones.  Jet Lag is one of the most common problems business men and women experience.  The Mandarin Oriental Hotel near Hyde Park features a luxurious spa offering hydrotherapy, color therapy and an opportunity to create a custom spa experience. There’s also Urban Retreat (for the ladies) and The Refinery (for gentlemen) at Harrod’s .Harrod’s also provides a menu of services as a quick jump-start for the hard-working businessperson.

LondonWest End restaurants in London to enjoy dinner at include The Ivy London, Thames Barrier and dinner by Heston Blumenthal. The Fat Duck, the Mandarin Oriental, Hyde Park location of Din-ner are all restaurants from acclaimed 3 Star Michelin Chef which are packed with foodies who come for degustation of ofal and classic British country fare prepared with modern gastronomic technique.

Visit Carnet for Free Login and Make Trip Plans for Romantic Luxury Getaway to Venice, Italy

Image

Carnet has the best suggestions for romantic outings during your getaway to Venice!  One idea is to take a motorboat across the Venetian lagoon to the island of Torcello. Visit the ruins of the old Byzantine Cathedral and have a late lunch under the shady pergolas of the gardens of Locanda Cipriani. You might be seated at the table where Ernest Hemingway wrote “Across the River and into the Trees.”

Venice, Italy is full of romance and whimsy in every season, so it’s always a great time to plan a Venetian getaway!  The city of Venice is incredibly beautiful; a stroll through its neighborhoods is a lovely and charming experience.  In the summer months, visitors and locals alike enjoy long evening walks along the Giudecca.  In autumn, you can walk across piazza San Marco, but don’t forget to bring your rubber boots because of the high tide!  In winter, ten centuries of history are covered by a silent blanket of snow.  In the spring, make sure to experience the flowers and scents of the secret gardens in the city of the Doge.

Whether you’re traveling to Venice looking for romance or are a seasoned traveler, the Carnet travel guide to Venice has insider travel reviews for culture rich entertainment, art museums, galleries, fine dining, luxury hotels and fashion designer shopping addresses.  While in Venice, Carnet suggests hiring a Water Taxi to take you to the Giudecca Canal just before sunset and enjoy the colors and reflection of the waters. Watch the rays of the sunset play on the gold of the domes of San Marco from the Bell Tower of San Giorgio Maggiore, far from the maddening crowd.

I found these romantic Venetian travel suggestions from my favorite travel guide, Travel with Carnet!

The Daily Guide to Las Vegas by Carnet Can Help a Visiting Traveler Create Plan for Luxury Getaway

Image

Looking to plan a luxury getaway?  It’s always a great time to visit Las Vegas!  Sin City is the perfect destination for romantic encounters, rekindling romance, and for extravagant dining experiences that are sure to satisfy even the most discriminating foodies.  Captivating performances by Cirque du Soleil, beautifully luxurious lodging accommodations, molecular cuisine, award winning wines, and Michelin star chefs can all be included in your Carnet luxury getaway itinerary.

Since 1984, Cirque du Soleil has been one of the most mystifying and captivating shows on Earth.  You are sure to gasp at the spectacle of one of the eight resident Cirque du Soleil performances during your next Sin City trip, especially when perfectly paired with Carnet’s restaurant picks.

Carnet suggests pairing dinner at Pierre Gagnaire’s Twist at the Mandarin Oriental with Cirque du Soleil’s “Mystere” at Treasure Island.  Both engagements guarantee an exotic and awe-inspiring evening.  Rather pay tribute to the King of Las Vegas?  Visit the Aria Resort and Casino for “Viva ELVIS,” but first, pair your show with the hospitality of Elvis’ Southern roots at the MGM Grand with a reservation at Emeril’s, the chef’s New Orleans fish house.  The molecular cuisine and atmosphere of exclusive E by Jose Andre at the Cosmopolitan perfectly complement Criss Angel’s “Believe” at the Luxor.  

A French inspired meal complements “Zumanity” at New York-New York Hotel.  Visit Travel with Carnet for a list of French restaurant recommendations.  The Beatles tribute “LOVE” at the Mirage Hotel is perfectly paired with a visit to Todd English P.U.B. at CRYSTALS.  You can celebrate the aquatic and surreal love story of “O” with the seafood flavors of Joe’s Stone Crab at Caesars Palace or Michael Mina’s SEABLUE at the MGM Grand.

Want a behind-the-scenes glimpse at a Cirque du Soleil show?  To find out how, and to create your own luxury itenerary for a getaway to Las Vegas, visit Travel with Carnet!
