Food lovers now seem to have more mediums than ever to showcase their knowledge, passion, and experimentations. Anyone with the desire to do so can easily start their own food blog, and even food photography has changed with the ubiquitousness of cell phone cameras that enable aspiring food writers and casual gourmands, alike, to document their meals, recipes, shopping excursions and anything else they deem interesting. This, of course, has spawned apps like Instagram that allow you to take photos with your phone, edit them and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or one of the many other platforms used by foodies today. With SOBEWFF occurring next week, Evian has teamed up with TV personality Chef Richard Blais, who will be taking over the French mineral water’s @evianwater Instagram account to bring us behind-the-scenes views of the food festival. To lead up to the event, Chef Blais is inviting all foodies everywhere to upload their own culinary creations to Evian’s Instagram account as part of #evianeats Foodie Photo Series.
Twitter - having long since eclipsed its use as a platform for bursts of thought - serves as a central news source, a public forum, a direct method of communication to and from artists, and the most up-to-date source for photos of Deadmau5's cat. And this fall, Believe Entertainment is raising the bar and creating a new use for Twitter which will be developed with the launch of an all-encompassing digital series, @EpicEDM.
Acting as an inside source for all things within the dance music community, @EpicEDM will use Twitter's latest innovation to be the go-to guide for fans and artists alike. Featuring nonstop content on the biggest tours, nightclubs, and festivals worldwide, the hub will be the first studio coordinated series of its type that is designed specifically for the Twitter platform. Features such as interest and geotargeting will allow EpicEDM to provide accurate, real-time interaction among followers, and will use all of the benefits of social media to connect fans across the world. From video updates to ticket giveaways, artist interviews and more, around-the-clock programming with will bring users the best of the EDM world with a simple click of a "follow" button.
The Olympics weren’t the only big events for America this week. In fact, it’s been a pretty huge week overall. The Curiosity rover successfully landed on Mars early August 6th, to the delight of just about everyone. The Curiosity, one of NASA’s most advanced rovers is a moving laboratory on rocket boosters, equipped with cameras and ready to explore the surface of Mars. It’s a marvel of technology and it makes space exploration that much more real for everyday people. It means immediate feedback and learning about the planet. It’s as close as we can get, for now, to actually being there.
Oh Twitter, what would we all do without it? The micro-blogging site has become the go-to platform for connecting people all over the world, including plenty of celebrities. In fact, Twitter has so much clout, celebs and notables are often judged by how many "followers" they have.
Modern technology connecting people is a great thing --or is it? What happens when users reveal a little too much? It seems we've hit the peak of overshare overload. Celebs like Demi Moore, Chris Brown, Rihanna and countless others have taken to Twitter to "air dirty laundry" about their personal lives and relationships, sometimes with dire results.
As social media continues to prove itself as the most important measuring stick of success in the electronic music world, more and more DJs are rewarding their loyal fanbases for Facebook likes and Twitter follows with exclusive releases.
Hardwell is the latest DJ to jump on the fan appreciation bandwagon, releasing a massive bootleg package today in return for hitting 200,000 Twitter followers.
The 13-track selection takes new twists on old favorites like “Silenced By Mr Brightside," “Trolltanium,” and “Squad Up In Here.”
So download the package here, put your headphones on blast, and get ready for the spaceman to take you on a wild ride.
Chris Brown’s album “Fortune” dropped on July 3rd. Even with rave reviews it seems like the “Turn Up the Music” singer can’t shy away from controversy.
We won’t even bring up the Rihanna 2009 incident.
Well... maybe mention it a bit ONLY because it seemed that after the horrific incident occurred Chris was dedicated to the fixing his public image, proving that looks indeed can be deceiving. In recent weeks Chris has been associated with a violent club fight with “Take Care” rapper, Drake.
Former Disney darling Miley Cyrus got real cheeky in a Los Angeles American Apparel Wednesday afternoon. The star went bra-less under a crop top and a pair of barely there short shorts. She threw on a black and red flannel shirt as a cover-up and stepped out in black combat boots.
The newly engaged super star then took to Twitter shortly after
"I love being a 'fiancee,'" the future Mrs. Hemsworth tweeted Wednesday, dropping hints about her upcoming wedding. "@BigBlack is hookin me upppp. singin @ my wedding for a reasonable $$$ AND putting a fantasy factory in my backyard! Dreams DO come true ;)"
Unless you’ve been sitting under a rock for the past three years on a deserted island, roped, tied, and gagged, you have more than likely been exposed to the teenage cultural phenomenon that is Justin Bieber.
Yes, that’s right teenage cultural phenomenon.
From dating Disney darling Selena Gomez to singing for the President, Justin Bieber is an international sensation who has solidified his spot in music and pop culture history.
2012 seems to be the year of celebrity reinvention and no one has had a more publicized re-entry to fame than starlet-gone-rogue Lindsay Lohan. LiLo's very public struggle with drugs, alcohol, and theft have left the skeptics and even her most loyal of fans doubtful of a successful return back to the limelight.
But she shocked everyone with a semi-above decent performance on Saturday Night Live earlier this year and a funny parody role on Fox’s hit series Glee. Then she got Hollywood buzzing, claiming the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic “Liz and Dick."
You might know rapper Drake a.k.a Drizzy by his rap-love-ballad lyrics or perhaps from his pre-rapper days on teen angst television show Degrassi. Or maybe you just identify with his eyebrows. Either way, the Canadian/Jewish rapper received a smackdown from oil tycoon, T. Boone Pickens, after humble-bragging about his "millions." On Twitter, of course.
The micro-blog site has quickly become the go-to spot for celebs to diss and be dissed. And we're guilty of kinda loving it. We only wish we could get "stunted on" by T. Boone Pickens about our "millions." Sigh.
Here's how it went down. [via Gizmodo]
And if that wasn't enough for you, here is a reenactment from Chris D'Elia of what we suspect happened afterward:
