Summer Festival Fashion and Safety Guide

Summer Festival Fashion and Safety Guide

Please enjoy this guest post from Rachel Elliott about some of my favorite topics….summer, festivals, fashion and more! Take it away Rachel…..drum roll and guitar riffs please…..   Summer is just around the corner and with it comes summer music festivals. Coachella, one of the first major festivals of the year, has just ended, and while it tends to set the scene for the year’s festival fashions, you don’t have to feel like you missed out if you couldn’t attend. There are tons and tons of other big and small music festivals all summer long, so get yourself in the… Continue Reading

Video Did Not Kill The Radio Star: 16 Times I Wish I Had Video Proof

recording my life because weird things are attracted to me like flies to shit

I am going to tell you something that might not surprise you. People don’t love to read. I would totally look at pretty pictures and funny videos if I could learn everything I needed to know by doing just that. Wouldn’t you? I am so ADD and OCD that sometimes I can’t even re-read my own blog posts. But, don’t tell anyone because that could be a bad look for someone who blogs full time. HA! Anyway, watching a video is so much fun. I wish I had my camera on me for so many experiences I have had along… Continue Reading

My Love Affair With Cars: Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale

Sometimes the best days and nights happen when you least expect them. We all know that I am totally OCD, ADD, a neurotic planner and write lists for my “to do” lists. But, there are those rare occasions where I am asked to do something that is not listed on my Icloud calendar and I suck it up, throw on a snarky outfit, paint on my Bobbi Brown black eyeliner, layer my Lancome mascara, drape (what some may think is too much gold around my neck aka Mr. T), grab a bling studded Valentino purse, paired with way too tall… Continue Reading

Get On The Good Foot: Observations from a Rocker

Get on the Good Foot by James Brown is my jam

I learned a few things this weekend. 1. Melany is a very popular porn star name and I know this because when Google-ing my name (with the letter “Y” at the end) you will not find it on a Coke bottle, key chain but will find that it is a chosen name for a lot of porn stars. Just look at the images. Google it. See me in the midst of those women. Yeah. So, mom has looked into changing this melodic spelling for me legally. I will keep you updated. DISCLAIMER: I am not a porn star. Melanys is… Continue Reading

Relationship Status: Viva La “Rock N’ Roll” Vegas

I just got back from Las Vegas and my Birthday is tomorrow so I thought I would do a review in pics and video for you snarky people. Isn’t it so much fun to view the madness in living color? Here goes. The first night in Las Vegas, I went Beacher’s Madhouse at the MGM with a friend who lives in Sin City. Please note, that she has a little bit of a fear (not of clowns) but of little people. I’ll let the pics do the talking! I recommend going to this club, which is super popular with celebs,… Continue Reading

Billboard Music Awards 2014: What Music?

Well, that wraps up another Billboard Music Awards show in Las Vegas for moi and the final one I attend until Metallica, Godsmack, Shinedown, KORN, Soundgarden, Staind, Drowning Pool, Black Sabbath, Dokken, Disturbed, Ratt, Guns N Roses, Tesla, Otherwise, Def Leppard, Aerosmith, Sevendust, Scorpions, ACDC, Van Halen, Motley Crue (just to name just a few) are all in the same room rocking out and receiving REAL music awards. Coming from a music business background and working with real rock groups, it disappoints me the lack of rock and good music out there for young people to digest! I mean I… Continue Reading

Back in LALAland: Hollyweird

While you are reading this, there is a good possibility that I am still waiting for YouTube to upload a 5 minute video. You would think in this day and age I would just have to clap and it would be uploaded. You know like the clapper? Clap on, clap off. WTF is going on here? So, while I wait for one of the most painful experiences in life (waiting for a telephone/internet/cable repair man to show up and fix something properly the first time) you are going to have to watch this video I snuck through the internet waves… Continue Reading

DatingAdvice.com: Me, An Expert?

Dating advice expert

This week has been insane for me but in a great way! This dating and relationship blogosphere is full of information, tips, advice, experts and people who think they are experts. I have learned so much and in no way claim to be an expert but feel that I am heading in that direction (especially when it come to dating this blog and not going on any real dates). What does it mean to be an expert on love and relationships anyway? We all have both of these things (hopefully) in our lives and are full of experiences both good… Continue Reading

Shane Alexander: Indie Music Artist & Friend

Shane Alexander 1

I am so lucky to have met some phenomenal people while working in the music business. For those of you who do not know, my previous life was marketing many of my all time favorite rock bands. I loved my job but it was hard on my mind, body and soul. During that time, I rocked hard and met many interesting but only a few exceptional people. One of my all time favorite rockstars (whom you should get to know if you don’t already) is Shane Alexander. We met while working for legendary music manager, Irving Azoff. (I marketed many… Continue Reading
