The Comeback of the Century: Please Help Donate

image

One nearly died, the other is fighting Lupus. Timothy Rhyme and Nay The Producer (First Dirt) are trying to make the Comeback Of The Century, literally.

Timothy Rhyme nearly lost his life on July 18, 2011.  He bled out internally and almost met the man upstairs.  Since that traumatic day, he has bounced back like James Blake.  Shortly after his recovery, he moved to LA to be closer to his daughter, got into CSUN, has made some significant strides in his music career, and kept his focus on helping people.

Nay The Producer was diagnosed with Lupus August 2012.  She spent the entire month  of October 2012 in the hospital. This flare up was so severe it caused fluid in her lungs, fluid around her heart and two blood transfusions. To go from a self reliant, hard working woman, to needing the assistance of a walker and cane to do menial things has put her in a hard spot.  Regardless, she keeps fighting and hasn’t let this unrelenting disease stop her from moving forward.

  Both have seen their lives be flipped upside down and completely altered forever.  This campaign is an attempt to raise funds to put together an amazing album but it subconsciously is touching the warrior spirit that we all have.  Some people would have let their circumstances get the best of them but Timothy Rhyme and Nay The Producer would not let defeat be a word that described them in this story. 

 This campaign is important for several reasons.  Not only will it allow Tim and Nay to tell their story.  But it will allow them to inspire others and show other people in similar predicaments that there is some hope and that they aren’t alone.  Music is one of the most powerful tools in lifting a persons spirit and this is one of the main objectives of this album.  In a world where most of the messages in music are about “cool” stuff and a glamorous life, Tim and Nay attempt to show that you can still make good music with a good message.  

If you have ever faced a challenging time in your life and just wished you had that little nudge to get you to the next step, this is your chance to be that to someone else.  This is your chance to be apart of the Comeback Of The Century!

What Your Generosity Will Fund

Through experience, Tim and Nay have figured out how to release a successful album.  They each have years and years of experience in this industry and have seen the formula first hand.  The main components are:

1.Mixing / Mastering

2.Album Cover Design 

3.Music Video

4.Distribution

5.Promotion

6.Merchandise

We budgeted every penny and used fair estimates of making sure we didn’t sacrifice quality.  If we are going to ask people to invest in us we want to make sure that their money is used to create the best product possible.

If for some reason we are unable to reach our goal.  Your investment will still be used for this album.  We might have to cut some corners and go the cheap route on some of the extra costs but either way it will go into the final album.

The Impact

Tim and Nay are really hoping to set a tone in the hip hop world.  They are consistently breaking down barriers when it comes to music arrangement and content within the hip hop community.  To be able to release this album in the manner they would like to would mean that the younger generations will have a new message to relate to.  In a world where negativity and self destructive tendencies reign supreme, this is a breath of fresh air to those that are looking for more honest depictions of the world they live in.

In the end, Tim and Nay hope to inspire future artists, students, and people in general to not be afraid to be themselves. They want to show that you can be yourself and still be successful. That you don’t always have to conform to what you see on TV to gain some notoriety.  

The impact will hopefully be felt for generations to come.  And when the next generation feels like they’re down and out they can be reminded that Tim and Nay made the Comeback Of The Century and so can they.

MILEY CYRUS TATTOO: The Artist that Created it

image

Tattooer Scott Howard (https://www.facebook.com/ScottEHoward) at The Living Canvas Tattoo Studio (http://www.bigtoptattoos.com/artists.html) outside Buffalo, NY has a phone that wont stop vibrating today but he took time to talk to Inkedmag.com. Howard is suddenly popular because he is responsible for the tattoo of Miley Cyrus from her “Wrecking Ball” music video that is blowing up the internet at the moment. 

Howard often draws funny designs, puts them up on his Facebook page and sees if he has any takers. A few days ago the Disney Princess-turned-disaster was his muse for a sketch replete with a Yolo foam finger. Within five minutes, a guy he went to high school with was in and the rest can never be unseen. “I told him to make sure he was sure about getting it because he is going to get a lot of shit for this,” Howard says. “So he is definitely in on this big joke.

” Howard himself sports some mirthful tattoos including Mickey Mouse smoking meth (Disney on Ice) and a California Raisin shooting an AK-47 (Raisin’ Hell). All in all Howard says, “I’m proud of the Miley Cyrus piece. It’s a good tattoo.”

Mike Myers Officially In for ‘ Austin Powers 4

image

Despite making boatloads of cash, the animated Shrek franchise has arguably been driven into the ground, with its third and fourth installments failing to meet the critical success of the first two. Outside of this franchise, star Mike Myers hasn’t been working too much and it’s no surprise after his last live-action feature The Love Guru was a total failure.

While many fans would love to see him reunite with Dana Carvey for another Wayne’s World, especially after they paired up to bring the sketch back more than once in recent years, we definitely are going to see Myers return to reprise his most recognizable character, the shagadelic super spy we know as Austin Powers.

HitFix just broke the news that comedian and voice actor extraordinaire, Mike Myers, has officially signed on to return as the title character in Austin Powers 4, a film which will likely take on a different title, spoofing another James Bond movie.

For years, we’ve heard murmurings of interest and movement in developing Austin Powers 4, but it’s largely been up to Myers to make it happen and he’s now decided the time is right and we can expect the movie to release in 2013.

Back in 2008, we reported that Myers had been working on the script alongside Mike McCullers who helped write the last two Austin Powers flicks, but nothing moved on that front for a two years, until director Jay Roach was asked about it at last year’s ShoWest. He explained that Myers was still pondering ideas for the next Austin Powers sequel and that he’d definitely be ready to jump back into the director’s chair (he directed the entire trilogy).

A while back there were also rumors of an Austin Powers spin-off movie that would focus on Dr. Evil but fortunately, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards anymore and we can expect him and other franchise familiars to return for fourth main franchise installment instead. Hopefully, Austin Powers 4 will bring back Michael Caine as Nigel Powers, Seth Green as Scott Evil and Verne Troyer as Mini Me, along with many of the characters Myers plays himself.

Who knows, perhaps Myers’ recent reappearances with Dana Carvey could lead to him being involved as well? Expect plenty of celebrity appearances regardless.

With the first three Austin Powers movies taking the names of International Man of Mystery, The Spy Who Shagged Me, Goldmember, what would you suggest forAustin Powers 4?
