Picture Perfect

Entertainment blog Instagram allows it’s members to take pictures, edit them and post them directly onto the site instantly. There’s a story about a guy that used Instagram to post pictures of him posing with celebrities, in which he built a fan base of 73,000 followers in a short period of time. He started off doing this for fun and used his photo-editing skills to place himself amongst some of the greatest celebrities. It has now taken off and he is looking to relocate to New York to pursue a career using his creative design and photo-editing skills. Some of the celebrities he is pictured with includes:

Jay Z and Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Drake, Rihanna, Lil Wayne and even first lady Michelle Obama. Everything is very competitive these days, and it goes to show that with persistence and creativity you can break through in any industry!!! I guess this was his “Last Straw”

Cable Television Alternatives

Featured

There was a time when cable television was mandatory in every household, because you couldn’t see your favorite TV show, sports or movies without it. Now, you have several companies like Netflix, EpixHD and even Amazon offering digital streaming of your favorite shows and movies. I have cable TV in my home and I usually DVR my favorite shows to watch them at a later time and date. But I am seriously considering these other alternatives because it saves money and I don’t even have time to enjoy TV as much. There are always reruns on cable TV, and and can’t watch what you want to watch when you want to watch it unless you pay an additional fee. With NetflixEpixHD and Amazon, you pay a small monthly fee to see a vast amount of TV shows and movies. There is old and new content, and the good thing is, you can watch it anytime you like. Netflix even has independent films that you can watch on their website, which is great for indie filmmakers like Jeff Renfroe’s “The Last Straw”.  Take a moment to visit explore these sites and see what they have to offer!
