I was recently watching Frontline and they had this posted.  Though this article is old, it’s an eye opener!

From http://www.nytimes.com:

MOKCHEON, South Korea — The compound — part boot camp, part rehab center — resembles programs around the world for troubled youths. Drill instructors drive young men through military-style obstacle courses, counselors lead group sessions, and there are even therapeutic workshops on pottery and drumming.

But these young people are not battling alcohol or drugs. Rather, they have severe cases of what many in this country believe is a new and potentially deadly addiction: cyberspace.

They come here, to the Jump Up Internet Rescue School, the first camp of its kind in South Korea and possibly the world, to be cured. (more…)

Beyonce Knowles

First we find out Beyoncé‘s not pregnant, now her infamous music videos are on lockdown?!

By the looks of the Grammy-winning, multihyphenate’s YouTube page, Sony has blocked all of B’s music videos and replaced them with this message: “This video contains content from Sony Music Entertainment, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.”

The action comes on the heels of a copyright infringement issue involving Beyoncé’s label, and as techie website Motherboard points out, no doubt stems from the floundering record industry and their desire to have a piece of the online video biz.

No word yet on when those pieces of art Beyoncé calls music videos—you know you love “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”!— will be live on the web once more. We’re just hoping more of our faves don’t start vanishing from YouTube, too.

WEEK IN RECAP: Neal B Covers the Official Oscar Party on the East, Law and Order Shoot, Hair, and more!

What a week!  I swear this stuff ONLY happens in New York!

New York City Neal B Style!

New York City Neal B Style!

Here’s a recap of this week for you!

  • New Opportunities and New Events! I officially become part of the ArtofTalk.tv family! I am on board with them as a web-video entertainment & events correspondent.  So tune in to see all the fantastic content on their page (and of course Elisa’s amazing editing skills put to work!). Press release here

  • Monday’s “Miscast”. The week started off with going to Miscast 2010 is a musical presentation of Broadway stars singing songs from roles for which they would never be cast (for example, last year Alice Ripley belted Sweeney Todd’s “My Friend”).  Cast included: Mo Rocca (The Daily Show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! on NPR) and will feature songs by Raúl Esparza (Company), Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Mille, The Drowsy Chaperone), Montego Glover (Memphis), Ana Gasteyer (SNL alumna, The Royal Family, Wicked), Marin Mazzie (Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime, Passion), David Miller (Il Divo), Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal, Wicked), and Tom Wopat (Catch Me If You Can, Tarzan). Here’s the article Here are a few pictures from the event

  • My Faceoff with Facebook.  The “F” word began my faceoff with Facebook.  My account was banned (hopefully temporarily).  So much for freedom of speech!  I should have learned by now! Click here for the full story

  • “Law” in Jersey.  Thanks to On Locations Vacations, we got the tip that “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” would be willing in Fort Lee, New Jersey (right over the bridge). Law and Order: SVU is a favorite show of ours and having already saw the production team in action in NYC, we decided to pay a visit to the set.  Surprisingly. we were the only outlet there.  Maybe it was because it was cold?  My hunch was because it was Jersey!  No one wanted to cross the bridge! For the video and pictures click here

  • Nude and Nature. Elisa and I went to the village for a brand new art installation, which is getting huge buzz!  Brian Reed’s “Through the Heart of It All” combines artistic nudity, spirituality and nature for a beautifully done masterpiece.  For more information go to: For pictures and video, please click here

  • “Hair” today, gone tomorrow.   The Broadway revival cast of Hair is going to London (don’t worry- amazing replacements are coming in!) so Elisa and I were there to say farewell to some of the most amazing performers on Broadway!  THANKS ELISA FOR THE TICKETS!!  Sitting with the stars and fans, the show was purely raw, filled with intense emotion.  Click here to see some pictures/videos from the stage

Why Me? =(

The other day, one of my friends thought it would be funny to write the “F” word on my Facebook account status while I stepped away from the computer.  It was up for only a minute or two when I saw it .  I then removed it from my status. About two hours later, I tried to log onto to Facebook account and I was told my account was disabled.  I lost my pictures, network contacts, friends, and my fan page.

I have asked around and THIS IS HOW YOU CAN HELP:

* I HAVE BEEN TOLD THE MORE PEOPLE HELP OUT, THE BETTER CHANCES I HAVE OF GETTING MY ACCOUNT BACK **
** ANY OF THIS CAN BE DONE ANONYMOUSLY **

1.  E-MAIL.  Write  Facebook on behalf of me -kind of like a recommendation letter.  They want to hear why I deserve my account back.  They want to know that this won’t happen again, and what I am like.  Make sure you put my e-mail (Bwayrockz@yahoo.com) and also my screen name: Neal Equality Bennington. Their e-mails are:  disabled@facebook.com,  appeals@facebook.cominfo@facebook.com,  appeals+ngq0zsr@facebook.com,  warning+oplfdpiz@facebookmail.com.

2.  CALL.  Again, basically they want to hear why I deserve my account back.   Facebook:  650-543-4800.  Then dial either  extension “5” or “7” or their press line:    (650) 543-4811

ANY HELP WOULD MEAN THE WORLD TO ME!!!!!

Online Facebook groups may have failed to remove television personalities — such as Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann — from the air, but one group appears to have succeeded in returning one beloved actress to television: Betty White just might be hosting “Saturday Night Live.” (more…)

Snowboarder Brian Paupaw, who was booted from Fort Greene Park, said: ‘It was ridiculous. I’ve been snowboarding in that park for five years.’

That’s totally bogus!

That was the reaction of a snowboarder and his pals after park rangers booted them from Fort Greene Park for riding their boards on a steep hill after a heavy snowstorm before Christmas. (more…)
