One fantastic song with the very familiar voice of Rhiana singing in chorus. Jay Z doing a great job as usual and the upcoming artist Rick Ross who has been everywhere lately.

3.Wiz Khalifa – G.F.U (The Motto Remix) Ft. Juicy J & Berner

This is one of the hottest song in March 2012, too much win for a song from Wiz Khalifa

Pinflap Live!

The patrons glanced up at the musician from behind their laptop screens drawn from their cyber worlds by the unique acoustic songs which permeated the Texas coffee shop.

Their glances to the musician, their smiles and loud cheers at the end of each song indicating they were enjoying the performance. Such is the ambience of a coffee shop audience as they work on their laptops while enjoying the live music.

The singer/songwriter that night was Pinflap (Gregory Wooldridge) from Dallas Texas, who’s first CD Pinflap 2 is a current hit with international radio audiences.

By popular request, pinflap will return to Dunn Bros Coffee House, Addison Texas on Saturday night, Feb 26 to share more of his unique acoustic songs.

Wooldridge has been writing music for about 28 years. At the age of 21, he brought a used acoustic guitar and taught himself how to play. Three months later he was in a band and playing bass.

As a former member of several successful bands in the 80s and 90s, including the Cadillac Cowboys, he then went on to carve out a solo career as a singer/songwriter and an acoustic guitarist performing under the name Pinflap.

Pinflap credits Lindsey Buckingham, James Taylor and Ian Anderson, as musicians who inspired his career. One amazing fact about Pinflap is that he never uses a pick, ever! His unique acoustic style sounds simplistic but yet it is complex if not impossible to emulate.

In an industry often permeated with mixers and voice synthesizers it is refreshing to hear the raw talent of a singer/songwriter acoustic guitarist who sounds as good live as he does on his 2010 released album, Pinflap 2. But don’t take my word for it check him out yourself at Dunn Bros Coffee, Addison from 8.30pm on Feb 26.

Organisers are expecting strong participation based on trends in this troubles & rapidly changing industry.

“The Stock Photography industry has been in a state of flux for many years now, and just when we thought it was settling down, it appears we might be headed in a full circle,” explained Brad Stephens, PRI director. “Over the last 12 months we’ve seen a lot of trends with pricing and licensing and that just don’t fit the pattern of previous years, and some are more like what we’d have expected 10 years ago. Of course in other areas, the industry is breaking new ground every month, so it’s an exciting time to be on the cutting edge as it were.”

Matt Brading, founder of OzImages International, reflected, “This sort of survey really helps all industry participants. It’s the kind of information that photographers can use improve many aspects of their businesses, from the subjects they shoot, the way they photograph them, right through to the marketing methods they use to get those images noticed. And when the photographers are doing a better job of it, it makes the Photo Buyer’s job significantly easier as well!”

Lighthouse Inspires Christians Worldwide with New Media

Lighthouse Catholic Media, a not-for-profit company achieved a milestone in sales growth of 21% over April, 2009 – significant in this continuing poor economy worldwide. As we move toward the end of Pope Benedict’s “Year for Priests” Lighthouse continues to support this theme with its release of its “Year for Priests” CD.

Lighthouse Inspires Christians Worldwide with New Media

In this fantastic CD, Dr. Michael Barber, Professor of Theology and Scripture at John Paul The Great Catholic University, and Chase Hilgenbrinck, seminarian and former professional soccer player, share rich insights about this vocation to which select men are called by God to serve Christ and the Catholic Church.

Lighthouse Catholic Media’s CDs are distributed primarily in two ways: through their FAITHRAISER Kiosk Program displayed in over 3,000 parishes, Catholic schools and missions, and via their popular Lighthouse CD of the Month Club Program. The CD of the Month Club is a subscription-based service delivering faith-filled Catholic CDs to individuals at the amazingly low rate of $5/month including postage, with brand new titles being introduced monthly by inspiring speakers, both lay and clergy.

The June CD of the Month is “Why Be Catholic?” by Patrick Madrid. Best-selling author and veteran Catholic apologist Patrick Madrid shares why he is Catholic (when he could be anything else) by presenting the historical case for the Catholic Church. Discover the powerful biblical evidence for Catholic teaching that will inspire you to share your faith with others effectively and help you to grow in your love for Christ and His Church in the process! This compelling overview of the key historical, biblical, and common-sense reasons for being Catholic is perfect for Catholics and curious non-Catholics alike.

Many people in these economically challenging times are looking for sources of truth and guidance, a sense of hope, courage and faith, and a means to grow spiritually in their daily lives. Lighthouse Catholic Media is meeting that need, having distributed more than 975,000 CDs in 2009, and serving over 3,000 of the 18,000 US Catholic parishes.

In one of the most economically challenging years in memory, Lighthouse Catholic Media, a Not-for-Profit Corporation achieved a milestone in distributing over 975,000 audio CDs in 2009 for a growth rate of 29% over 2008. Since its’ founding in December, 2005 Lighthouse has distributed nearly three million inspiring Catholic CDs worldwide. Media for evangelization?

The Vatican on Saturday, Jan. 23rd issued a positive affirmation of media in the Church: (Zenit.org) Benedict XVI is encouraging Catholics, especially priests, to use media technologies to reach new audiences with the message of God’s love. The Pope affirmed this in a message, released Saturday, for the 44th World Communications Day, which will be celebrated May 16. The theme of the day, “The Priest and Pastoral Ministry in a Digital World: New Media at the Service of the Word,” reflects the Year for Priests currently underway in the Church. The Pontiff affirmed that in digital communications, “priests can discover new possibilities for carrying out their ministry to and for the Word of God. The recent, explosive growth and greater social impact of these media make them all the more important for a fruitful priestly ministry.”

Lighthouse Catholic Media’s CDs are distributed three ways: through their FAITHRAISER Kiosk Program displayed in over 2,400 parishes, Catholic schools and missions, the popular Lighthouse CD of the Month Club Program, and a new portable 16-CD display. The CD of the Month Club is a subscription-based service delivering CDs to individuals at an amazingly low rate of $5/month including postage with brand new titles being introduced monthly by inspiring speakers, both lay and clergy.

In January, 2010 the featured CD of the Month Club title is Building Better Families by Matthew Kelly. In addition, another CD released explains St. Louis De Montfort’s book True Devotion to Mary and how the intercession of our Blessed Mother is especially important for our troubled times. “AWESOME CD! As a convert I did not understand the beauty of our Blessed Mother. WOW! She is such a treasure and gift from God.” says Denise in Avonmore, PA.

The organization has lofty goals. This week, the not-for-profit announced its’ third offering in a handsome wall-mount or table-top portable display that holds sixteen CD titles. Priced at less than $200 for 80 CDs, Lighthouse Catholic Media expects to grow from the 2,400 parishes now served to over 6,000 of the approximately 18,000 US Catholic parishes. Catholic schools and missions across the Upper Midwest utilize tools such as http://www.lighthouseideas.org that enable volunteers to assist in the evangelical ministry.

“We have received a tremendous amount of positive feedback from clients that are currently using RVP,” says Director of Business Development Trish Thompson. “The security it provides is perfect for the producer or filmmaker that not only wants to prevent unauthorized duplication of a DVD, but also wants to prevent individuals from posting their sensitive material on the Internet. And now, with our added capacity, we can offer faster delivery on copy protected DVDs.”

RVP, a fully integrated copy management solution for DVD video, offers an optimized combination of strong copy protection with extremely high playback compatibility. Copy controlled discs give you full DVD playability matching that of unprotected DVD-Rs without affecting menus, special features and extras.
