Jax idol

For those that don't know Jax idol just started their 8th Season and if you've got vocal skills, you need to audition! Last Saturday was the first audition and this coming Saturday, April 9th is the last chance to try out. You must register from 11am-2pm to get a spot and I promise you want to be there early, as the place got PACKED last Saturday.

I was there to check out the process because when idol ends I will be hosting Jacksonvilles Got Talent (exciting!!!) and I wanna absorb all the info I can! Everything is run beautifully with a close crew of people who enjoy helping out Independent Artists, and having a good time while getting work in.

You sign up, meet new people, and the brand new host of the show, Luke Hazel, keeps everyone pumped and excited while waiting. Everyone is singing, eating and networking. People brought friends and family for support and encouragement. Then you walk down that hall and stand on an x in front of 3 judges, including the shows creator Joshua Howell, and sing one or two songs acapella for a minute each. The judges were honest, fun and real. If at least 2 like you then you get that golden ticket to round 2!

There was a variety of ages, races and musical preferences. I heard country, oldies, r&b and more. Some people were instantly entertaining while others struggled to find their voice when they hit that x. So if you come out next week be sure to rest those vocal cords and leave your nerves at home!

Now aside from all the fun you will have and experiences you will cherish, there are also some great prizes up for grabs! Prizes include a free demo CD, photo shoot, Disney tickets, paid bookings, $1,000 cash & more for the winner!

There are not many opportunities in this area to showcase your talent without paying a fortune so you all better take advantage and get ya butts down to Lillian's on Roosevelt Saturday or I'll be saying I told ya so!

Gluten-Free on I-95

I love traveling.. road trips, flying and even by boat. I just love to go. I didn't travel a lot as a kid.. Until I was 10 the only states I'd been to were my home state of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington DC. By the time I'd graduated I had added North Carolina and Kentucky. I live in Florida now but my first time here was in 2002 and at 38 years of age I have only added South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, New York (airport only) and Connecticut to the list as well as The Bahamas (Freeport) and Cuba. I still have a million places I want to go.. Now though it's all a bit trickier because of my allergies.. I have been diagnosed as allergic to gluten, cats, pine trees and a few other things. I seem to have reactions to other things and need to be tested for more in addition to other health issues I have that food can complicate. This makes traveling HARD. I have to be careful at every place I go.. eating at events is completely out of the qu

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food? What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot.... As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a s

Good Vibes Galaxy & Audio Blogging

As someone who has been blogging on and off for years as well as hosting, recording voicework for commercials and so much more I started thinking about this blog and how nice it would be to have an audio version to accompany the words that I write. I love to write but I also love to talk and I know not everyone has time to sit down and read ALL the blogs that their friends write or even those of the people they follow but almost all of us have time to push play and listen while we move on about our lives. When I started looking into how to make this happen there were so many options available to me but none were just a simple add audio to your blog so I decided to make it work for me in the best way for me. I will be using both my blog site as well as my YouTube to make this work. Each time I write a new blog I will also be recording an audio "podcast" of the blog and posting it to my YouTube channel. The blog will have the video embedded and that gives you all the choice as
