I wanted to reinvent the way in which the two organizations I reside over now fundraise. I persuaded the amazing producers at The McKittrick Hotel, the home of Sleep No More, to let us take it over for one night to spread our message and prove that charity chicken events do not have to be the norm.
My Top Ten list of the year has very little, if any connection, with what people who still pay attention to the hipster music scene and read the Billboard charts would consider the best records of the year. And to be honest, I don't give a crap.
Whoever says that music isn't as good as it used to be is probably listening to way too much Katy Perry. Three rising bands you should be listening to performed last week at a special Japan benefit in New York City.
There is this cool little gizmo called a "Loopz" that creates sounds and beats depending on the user's physical interaction with it. An entity calling themselves The Loopz Band will be performing at Comic-Con.
It was stories like that, said Mr. Zemedkun's son, the singer-song writer Kenna, that inspired him to organize an expedition of Hollywood entertainers and others to climb the highest mountain in Africa.
Kenna was born in Ethiopia in East Africa and came to the United States with his parents when he was three. Africa is the part of the world where the most people are struggling with unhealthy drinking water.
