Beyoncé Knowles, Oasis, Jack Johnson and Michael Jackson


Music, pop and Beyoncé

And there are playlists about music here, here, here and here or about Jack Johnson.

Social networks. My profiles on NetLog, Plurk, I Like, Bebo, Friendfeed, Twitter and Facebook.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

A playlist of mine with the Boss, very good voices and a “foreign” love song.

Another playlist of mine with an empire and the sun, a former member of a boy band, a disco music star, British singers and “chatting”.

Lake Baikal in Russia.

Beyoncé and six Grammys. Well, what do you think of Beyoncé’s winning six Grammys? Four of them for the Song of the Year, Best R&B Song and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance  – Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) – and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for Halo…

R&B. Or do you like At Last or I am… Sasha Fierce and and are they worth the Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance or the Best Contemporary R&B Album? A video in an article by Sam Jones and Simone Whey, photos and these awards and UK charts.

Taylor Swift. Her single White Horse, female country vocal and country song.

Destiny’s Child and London. And what about Beyoncé Knowles’ group, the Destiny’s Child, or London’s Notting Hill Carnival? And there also should be a “bad advice” (“Though we shouldn’t forget that she also collected a hefty fee to perform for Colonel Gaddafi’s son on New Year’s Eve, perhaps the result of bad advice.”). This sentence is quoted from an article by The Guardian’s Music Blog by Rosie Swash.

Notting Hill carnival and Major Lazer. Diplo and Switch (aka Major Lazer) and the Notting Hill carnival (a video). Please do not see necessarily who is the sponsor…

31.01.10 – Grammy Awards. The Grammys on Sunday, January 31, from 8 pm on CBS.

Saint Petersburg. One of the “worst hotel” in Saint Petersburg? I would not travel to Russia… They should be helping Iran in building nuclear sites.

21.01.09 – Guantanamo and Obama. Guantanamo’s prison next to be closed? Easy or not? This is an interview by the Bbc to an ex-guard and a former prisoner and this is something about an Obama’s promise. He is trying to suspend the military trials related to the Cuban prison for 120 days.

– A military cartoon by a certain Smeltzer about hair and André Agassi, Bruce Willis, Michael Jordan and more. This military branch…

Barroso. The president of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, is convinced of the necessity of  “multilateral responses to global challenges, from the financial and economic crises to peace and security, including in the Middle East, development challenges, and of course the defining struggle of our generation: to stop and reverse climate change”. The Usa, the E.U. and other countries like Russia, China, India and so on… Multilateral responses…

Youth Ball. Obama’s feast and his day have also meant the Youth Inaugural Ball with the singer Kanye West, a band, the actress Demi Moore and the actor Tobey Maguire. Moreover, there were also the rocker Kid Rock, R&B singer Usher and the presenters Sway and Rosario Dawson.

Inaugural: music, a choice and slaves. Obama‘s final steps to his journey to the White House mean music as well as we can hear in this Euronews’ report. And the new president of the United States does not plan to follow the choice between security and American ideals, as the Washington Post and the Guardian websites write. The British newspaper refers also to slavery and lets Obama become less “saviour” to me.

Madoff. The Wall Street financier Bernard “Bernie” Madoff pleaded guilty last March “in front of a New York courtroom”. I am referring to an article by the British newspaper “The Guardian” according to which Mr. Madoff confessed to 11 criminal charges of fraud, money-laundering, false statements and perjury and of “operating a corrupt business empire dating back to the early 1990s”.

The “once-respected Wall Street fixture”, who might be condemned next June to a punishment of  “150-year jail term”, “has been the subject of death threats”, according to the newspaper, and “was surrounded by a tight security detail”. I think this aspect may be important to demonstrate how the economic turmoil has affected the everyday life of most Americans. If someone receives a death threat, something very important should be happened, shouldn’t it? Unless the USA are a country where very mad people live…

Florida, Switzerland and the UK. Madoff – the journalist Andrew Clark writes – described in the courtroom “how his scheme originated in the early 1990s when a recession made it difficult to produce healthy returns. Instead of investing in stocks and shares, he began using new deposits to pay out fake profits to existing clients”. What follows next in the Guardian’s article by Andrew Clark is: “The financier said that at the outset, he had been falsifying records on a temporary basis”. Moreover, Madoff “described laundering money through a London branch of his company to create a false paper trail”. The newspaper, like many media in that days, used the expressions “Ponzi scheme” and “pyramid selling in the US” (cash from new customers or investors – Phillip Inman explains in the Guardian – is given to existing investors). And this situation should have affected areas like Florida, Switzerland and the UK.

But just return now to the texts I have written about Christmas and financial turmoil…


Christmas time – 05.11.09. Maybe Christmas Market in Prague and Czech Republic? There is the Hotel Tiepolo with prices from 45 euros in a single standard room during low season (from January 7 to March 31 and from November 4 to December 26) to 209 euros for a quintupla superior room during holiday time (from March 21 to March 25, May 1 to May 4 and December 27 to January 6).

And you could also vote about travel destinations for my blog… Please see below. Do you also know that a pound should be exchanged with 89 eurocents and a dollar with 1,48 euros?

Northern Germany. Christmas in Hamburg with its Christmas markets.

24.12.08 How is Christmas according to three British newspapers? The Independent writes about Christmas in Basra (Iraq) and the Guardian offers its readers a travel quiz and a dinner guide or writes about the British government that “slams” a television channel over Ahmadinejad Christmas message.

The Telegraph gives importance to Queen Elizabeth’s emphasis on family and refers her acknowledgement that this Christmas was a “sombre occasion” for many people who had lost their jobs or their homes because of the financial turmoil. Duncan Gardham, the Telegraph’s security correspondent reports on the alternative Christmas message and Matthew Moore summarises the archbishops’ blames.
