Off Topic: Montrealers Prank Call Sarah Palin

Montreal's The Justiciers Masqués (Masked Avengers), Marc-Antoine Audette and Sébastien Trudel prank call Sarah Palin

This is an off-topic blog post, but I gotta show some hometown love to my city and post this audio from The Masked Avengers, a comedic Montreal radio duo that is notorious for their prank calls.

Earlier today, they pulled off another major prank on none other than Sarah Palin.

Pretending to be French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, they threw a few things her way, like referring to the Canadian Prime Minister by the wrong name and congratulating her on her feature movie, “Who’s Nalin’ Palin” by adult entertainment empire, Hustler.

Needless to say, she didn’t catch on.

Below is the official press release (yes.. there is a press release for a prank call) as well as the audio of the prank:

Dancing All Over The World

I just saw this video and had to share it with you guys.

I’m surprised I’ve never seen in it before though, since it’s apparently a very popular viral video.

No matter what kind of mood you’re in; you will definitely laugh and smile watching it.

This video took Matt Harding to 42 countries in 14 months and the best part about it all – it was all paid for by Stride Gum. How awesome is that?

[EDIT: You have to wait until about 1 minute into the video to understand why this is such a great and hilarious video.]

Make A Beat Online, Win $30,000

I came across this website a few weeks ago and wanted to share this with the producers and beatmakers out there.

This website, Hobnox.com is offering $30,000 to contestants who submit their music productions into their Evolution 2 contest. They have 3 different categories for their contest; Music, Film & Culture – each with its own $30,00 prize.

Usually, I wouldn’t post something like this, but like I mentioned yesterday; conferences, showcases and contests can be incredibly helpful to your success, so I wanted to share this with you guys to give the producers and beatmakers a chance to take advantage of one of these opportunities, regardless of what city you’re in.

Check out the video below to take a quick tour and then click here to find out more information about the Evolution 2 contest.

Hilarious Video: Shad – The Old Prince Still Lives At Home

I saw this and had to post it.

If you follow me on Twitter, you know my daily obsession with watching Fresh Prince of Bel-Air re-runs.

Well, Canadian rapper, Shad, decided to drop this hilarious parody music video for his song, “The Old Prince Still Lives At Home”.

You have to watch this video; it’s too great not to.

Shout out to Shad and his crew for a great concept and execution.

Rasha Entertainment Presents The Demo Clinic In ATL

If you’re an aspiring artist, producer, DJ or professional, you should already know how important conferences, showcases and contests can be. If you don’t already know; then I’m telling you now; they’re important.

I make it a point to attend several of these events, even if it doesn’t necessarily pertain to my profession, mainly because of the networking opportunities they present. If you know how to carry yourself and you have the necessary self-promo tools (business cards, CD, DVD, etc), events like these should not be missed.

If you’re in Atlanta, or will be on September 11, 2008, make sure you attend The Demo Clinic being held at Django.
