“The World Tomorrow” To Air On Russia Today


Days like today I wish had access to Russian television, but I suppose the Internet will suffice. Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange announced the debut of his new TV talk show, “The World Tomorrow,” which is scheduled to air on Russia Today on April 17th. The date marks 500 days since Visa, Mastercard, and Paypal stopped working with Wikileaks after the site released secret U.S. State Department cables. Assange is currently under house arrest in Norfolk, Britain, while facing possible extradition to Sweden for rape and sexual…

Janelle Monae Rallies Fans And Seeks Social Justice For A Young Boy’s Family


“Tightrope” singer Janelle Monae is on the top of her game. She’s been nominated for a few Grammys, has been given the fashion thumbs up by Karl Lagerfeld (a rare feat that JUST might be harder than winning a Grammy) and has a cameo in the hit single, fun.’s “We are Young.” So it’s great to see her raising awareness for issues she truly cares about. Last night, the soul singer tweeted to her fans asking them to show their support for the life of…

The “I Got A Feeling” singer is helping young inventors bring their ideas to life and make life more awesome, as part of Time Warner Cable’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) education challenge “Wouldn’t It Be Cool If….” From now until March 28th, young people across the country can enter the no-purchase-necessary contest by explaining how math and science can…

Song Obsession Of The Week: ’15 Minutes Away’ by K’naan


You’ll start to see a trend in the Song Obsession Of The Week series very soon if you haven’t already caught wind of it. The music featured in this category all consists of tunes consistently played in my Spotify. I met K’naan four years ago in Hollywood right before he went on stage at a social change film festival held at the Egyptian Theater. He was magnetic. While he performed, his booking agent and good friend of Incentivize, repeatedly said to me, “listen, listen to…

George Clooney & Brad Pitt Perform Prop 8 Play


Time Magazine once hailed him as the “last movie star.” People Magazine once named him the sexiest man alive. In 2005, he won a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his performance in the politically charged Middle East thriller “Syriana.” The same year he received a Best Director nomination for his black and white McCarthy era film “Good Night, and Good Luck.” In 2010, he teamed up with Google to launch a human rights project designed to prevent civil war in Sudan. George Clooney is…

Daniel Bedingfield Is Out Of His Head And Working For You!


It started out a bit rocky – the whole digital revolution and music industry convergence thing. In fact, the disruption was more than disastrous for a number of artists. But now that crowdfunding and social technology are being embraced, a new hybrid breed of digital music making entrepreneurs is on the rise. Sites such as the beloved KickStarter, RocketHub, and PledgeMusic are creating pathways to level the playing field for art to be supported and bestowed upon its true lovers. On top of putting the…

What The World Needs Now Is Ukulele


Music transports me faster emotionally than anything else. Nostalgic arpeggios, romantic strings, greasy riffs, and the warmest chords imaginable can make us feel understood, enlightened and connected like nothing us under the sun. Sometimes having a different perspective is as simple as hearing the right song. Last year, musician Jake Shimabukuro wowed audiences at TED with his rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” played on the ukulele, which is indeed the ”the underdog of all instruments,” as well as the “instrument of peace.”  Watch Shimabukuro’s peformance below and…
