Interview With Gr3g Hunt

1. Where are we talking from today?

This week I'm talking out of NJ.

I got involved in music when I was a BMX athlete picking songs that I would perform to my style and creating BMX videos. This lead to finding the right song for djing underground raves and eventually making my own songs. I would challenge myself like I did in BMX. Wherein BMX every event someone made history to where I try to in music, with every show I try to make history.

3. Can you describe your music?

My music is like that kid you see doing action sports, doing something that people said couldn't be done.

4. Music wise, what are you working on?

I'm working on doing a new EDM sub-genre, new tracks that may turn into an E.P.

5. What would you like to say to your fans and the world?

I love all my fans. I'm very grateful for the fans I have, without you I cannot and would not be here.

Taylor Swift Reputation Review


Written by Jasen Keplinger

Taylor Swift is really showing the world what we made her do with her latest album titled Reputation. The album, which is her sixth studio album, sold one million copies within the first four days alone. Released on November 10 2017 the album still currently sits in the number one position on Billboard.


Swift broke records with the release of the first single Look What You Made Me Do on all of the streaming sites while her music video for the single generating many millions of viewers the first night of it's release. Swift released the single many weeks before the release of the album Reputation. She soon followed the first single up with Ready for It which is actually the opening track on the album.


The video for Ready for It was a fantastical sci-fi fantasy and the single landed in the top five on Billboard. The album Reputation is considered to be of the genre electropop and was released by Big Machine Records. The album was the fourth consecutive album by Swift to sell over a million copies within the first week of release.


Swift has released three other singles in the U.S. off of the smash selling album Reputation including: I Did Something Bad, Gorgeous, and Call It What You Want. The singles End Game and New Year's Day also had limited release with End Game, which features Ed Sheeran and rapper Future, being released in France and New Year's Day being released on country music stations.


So far this late in the year Reputation has been the best selling album of the year. It has pushed Swift's music count to five number ones and twenty-two top ten singles. It has already matched her hit album 1989 in number of singles and personally I think both albums are equally impressive. I predict Swift's latest single I Did Something Bad will soon climb the charts to number one. I thoroughly enjoyed the album and felt Swift did a good job delivering an electropop album with mostly dance songs. I feel the album earns an 8 out of 10 and deserves a grade of B. I would strongly suggest giving this album a chance and listening to it, after all its the album of the year!

American Horror Story Cult Finale Blog


Written by Jasen Keplinger

American Horror Story fans were either really happy or really disappointed with the season finale of AHS Cult. I personally enjoyed the finale and thought each character's story was wrapped up well. So let's explore the finale, dissect the plots and analyze their meanings.

This finale was reminiscent of AHS Asylum's finale in the sense that time jumps forward and backward to explain the denouement of Kai (Evan Peters) while also bringing justice to each of the other characters. We start with Kai being in prison at the beginning of the episode. Right away we know his political plans were foiled, but how and why? We see Kai still has a following in prison including other inmates, as well as guards.








Then we are sent into the past where Kai is still free and pursuing his lofty goals. Ally (Sarah Paulson) is still playing up to Kai while looking for an opening and planning his downfall. Winter's (Billie Lourd) character is sorely missed in the finale because Kai had her murdered in the prior episode for betraying him.  At this point, Kai has no siblings left because he has killed them.




Kai begins to plan his most abhorrent strategy yet during the finale. He continues to "see" Charles Manson (also played by Evan Peters) who helps instruct Kai with his plans. Inspired by Manson, Kai plans a "night of a thousand Tates" where pregnant women and their unborn babies will be targeted and killed by his followers. The plan was named after Sharon Tate, who was a pregnant actress murdered by Manson's cult. Kai wants as many victims as possible, although he later lowers the target to a hundred victims. Ally and Beverly (Adina Porter) are disgusted by Kai's plan which leads to Beverly wanting to give up her life. She even asks Ally to kill her; however, Ally puts her back into shape while alluding that Kai's day of reckoning is coming.



Ally leaves the cult compound claiming to be going for snacks and then we see her enter an undercover surveillance van where law officials have been monitoring Kai and his cult. We learn that Ally has been working with the law all along to bring Kai down. Just then they burst into the compound where Kai is apprehended and the majority of his goons taken out. Thanks to Ally and her information Beverly is set free finally.



As if all this isn't enough for the finale, we see the ultimate reversal of roles between Kai and Ally when she decides to run for a high political office by accounting her experiences as a way to become a household name. When Kai finds a way to call Ally from prison, she breaks him by finally revealing that her son Oz is not his son and he decides she must die. By demanding aid from a female prison guard he's having sex with, Kai successfully escapes from prison by faking his death.



Beverly decides to use her experience in the media to help Ally get elected by being her campaign advisor. When it becomes apparent the voters see Ally as a victim, Beverly devises a plan in which Ally can face Kai publicly once and for all. At the next public campaign event, we discover Kai waiting in the audience to assassinate Ally. When his moment comes and he is about to pull the trigger it's revealed the gun is empty. In a flashback, it's revealed that Ally planned the whole encounter and even had the prison guard who helped Kai escape remove the bullets from his gun. Just then we see Beverly emerge with a gun and she finally brings Kai down by shooting him. Beverly finally gets the last word. The season ends with Ally being elected and then it's revealed she is the new grand leader of the all-female cult. What a finale! I thoroughly enjoyed this season and although the typical AHS supernatural elements were missing the show still did a fantastic job exploring American politics, as well as the dark insidious side of cult fanaticism.

ME
Now, first a little about me (my favorite subject). I am a "50 something" gay man and former comedy drag queen from The Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee. And if you couldn't tell from my photo that I'm a man, then my very first advice to you would be GET SOME GLASSES!!!! I'm happily engaged to my boyfriend, Jasen, and we are getting married this December. (See, I told you I knew something about love). I have my BFA Degree in Theatre and have been performing since I was 3. I'm an openly gay man, living in The South, whose father is a retired Southern Baptist preacher. Yep, I'm a preachers kid. I was even a Music Director in church for a few years. And after all that, I'm still "fairly" sane and it's time I shared all my vast experiences with the public...that's where y'all come in.

TOPICS
Now when it comes to topics, nothing is off limits. But let's not get vulgar. After all, I am Southern, and we like to keep things a teeny bit classy. Let's try to keep everything PG...ok maybe R rated. You can ask me anything. So you need advice on Love? Sex? Maybe you think your new fella might be gay or bi and you're not sure. Then drop me a line and I'll give you my honest advice. I'll try to not only give sound advice, but I'll do it with humor and love. But don't let that fool you. Remember you're asking advice from a drag queen. I can get bitchy with the best of them.
