Mariah Carey-Cannon????

Did you REALLY think I was going to let this go much further before I commented. Mr. Nickelodeon Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey ran off and tied the knot. I’m shocked and appalled that this we the celebrity loving public didn’t even know that they were dating. How did we miss this?

Mariah Cary & Nick Cannon

I won’t be judgmental, I won’t tell you what I really think, or any of my conspiracy theories. Here’s the story straight from People magazine:

” Yep, they did it! If there was any doubt Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s wedding was the real deal, they answer the question once and for all in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, speaking for the first time about their surprise nuptials – and showing off exclusive photos from their April 30 ceremony.

“We really do feel we are soulmates,” Carey tells PEOPLE, following their sunset ceremony at the pop star’s Bahamian estate. “I never felt a love like this was in the cards for me.”

Cannon adds: “She is beautiful on the outside and 10 times as beautiful on the inside.””

Soulja Boy and his childish ways.

He’s a genius man; it’s like catching Michael Jackson before he actually hit wax. It’s that kind of talent. Really?

This statement comes from Mr. Collipark multi-platinum producer who had a lot to do with Soulja Boy Tell’em (born Deandre Way) becoming the underage celebrity he is today. So, is it like a father proclaiming his son to be the best or is this simply talent?

Soulja Boy moved to Atlanta at age 6, when the “A” was responsible for turning local artists into national superstars. He says this caused him to take ques from his surroundings despite not having the ching ching or bling. He and his little brother were being raised by his mother who is a single parent.

In 8th grade he moved with his father who had more income, Soulja boy feels if he didn’t make this move, he wouldn’t be where he is at today. He started with a simple song being posted on a website that allows users to rate comment and download your music. Moving back to Atlanta in 2004 he hooked up with Mr. Collipark and made a promise to his self that he would help his mother out. He performed his first show at 15.

MJ I think not, just a kid who still enjoys song and dance.

Ice Cube is a big geek

Master rapper Ice Cube rocks a Sidekick, live streams his shows, makes music in Pro Tools, and just launched an Internet TV project.

Attacked by Jackets caught up with Ice Cube after his SXSW panel with DJ Pooh and got a few of his thoughts on music and technology.

Atacked by Jackets (Mark Trammell):

I saw this technology scholarship you’re working on with the music college up in St. Paul. Tell me a little about it.

Ice Cube:

Yeah, McNally Smith. It’s a school for people that’s doing contemporary music. It’s not really just stuck on classical or any of the older forms of music. They’ll teach you how to make a rap record, teach you how to work a 24 or 48-track SSL. It’s real stuff that kids is doin’ right now.

AxJ:

How did you get involved?

Cube:

The lady that runs it is good friends with my assistant. She was telling us about the school and asked me if I was interested in starting a scholarship in my name, so I started looking more into it and I was like “This is some cool shit!” I wish something like that was in California. So, it was cool that they named a scholarship after me. They award it to a kid every year and pay for their school.

Diddy Does It Again

I must admit, I’m hooked and I’m NOT happy that Sunday is the Making the Band 4 Season Finale. However, it’s 2 hours long, so I’m sure I’ll get my fix. Dannity Kane’s, Welcome to the Dollhouse, was released today. The boys, Day 26, will be released on March 25. It’s my thinking that the boys will out sell the girls, but I’ll have to watch those and keep you updated. For all the other MTB lovers out there, I thought I’d share:

What does Day 26 Mean:
“I believe that I have figured out the meaning of these names. Again, the first name we heard was 826 Boys. It didn’t mean much to me. Now, we hear Day 26. Day 26 made me think of an actual day of the month. 826… 8/26… August 26. August 26, 2007 was the day when the band was made – when the guys were picked. August 26, 2007 is 8/26/07. 826. Day 26. Makes sense. ” ~ http://www.badboyblog.com

How Will You Spend St. Patrick’s Day?

As I mentioned last week, I’m having a completely different take on St. Patty’s Day this year. I plan to rock my green, pinch the rebels that aren’t rocking green, drink some green brew, and party. I found this pretty cool site that a lists of all St. Patrick’s Day parades and events, so I won’t miss a thing. Find out what’s going on in your city!

Yea, it might seem a little young or a little lame to some to partake in the festivities, but it can be done right and can be tons of fun! Here are few things I’m thinking:

  1. Green-themed St. Patrick’s Day house party: complete with Irish recipes, green and gold balloons, hats, beads, necklaces, etc.
  2. St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl: Ladies, rock a green boa, green pumps & for the guys we have the sweatbands for you and if you’re smart you’ll don a “Kiss Me I’m Irish” shirt.

Send a comment and share how you party!

eBay Sellers Split on Changes

The significant changes that eBay announced last week have merchants abuzz as they analyze and react to the impact that the restructured fees, modification of the search and feedback functions, and other changes will have on their sales and profits.Of particular interest have been the proposed changes to fees, which involve lowering the cost of listing items and increasing the commission eBay gets when products are sold. There has also been much discussion in blogs and discussion forums of eBay’s plan to forbid sellers from leaving negative feedback for buyers.While merchants are split on the potential benefits and disadvantages of the changes, there seems to be a general consensus that, whether one supports them or not, the changes represent a major attempt on eBay’s part to alter the way that the marketplace works.”It’s clear eBay is taking it really seriously that they have to improve the buyer experience, and they’re laying the groundwork for getting aggressive about doing it,” said Jonathan Garriss, executive director of the Professional eBay Sellers Alliance (PESA), a group of large sellers that has often been highly critical of eBay.Garriss, also CEO of Gotham City Online, an apparel store on eBay that also has its own site, hopes that the proposed changes will be a first step of others that eBay will take to fix what PESA considers key problems with the marketplace, such as making the buyer experience more convenient and streamlined.To that end, Garriss is encouraged by the proposed incentives to reward merchants who provide superior customer service by giving all qualifying merchants preferred placement in search engine results and offering PowerSellers additional fee discounts based on their customer ratings.

“We don’t want to lose sight of the health of the marketplace, and the changes eBay is making are absolutely in the right direction,” Garriss said in a phone interview.

While he supports the concept of lowering insertion fees and shifting them to the commission, he recognizes that, as proposed, the fee restructuring will greatly hurt some merchants, particularly, in his view, those that sell lower-priced items in high volume via auctions. Garriss hopes that eBay will take this into consideration and possibly adjust the fee changes before rolling them out in a few weeks in the U.S.

Lisa Witt, an eBay PowerSeller for eight years, says the fee changes will not have much of an impact on her bottom line. A seller of fine jewelry, Witt says the listing fees will remain too high even under the new fee structure.

“They need to dramatically change the fee structure if they expect seller growth on the site. eBay should have a flat rate listing fee and it should be the same amount across the board for everyone, and that listing fee should be low,” she wrote in an e-mail interview. “A monthly fee for unlimited listings on eBay would work well too.”

Witt is against the plan to forbid sellers from leaving negative feedback about buyers. This change may lead to buyers using the threat of negative feedback as an extortion tactic to get extras, she said. Buyers may also be disinclined to contact sellers if a disagreement arises, resorting simply to leaving negative feedback, she added. “Feedback is voluntary and should be able to be left by either party as they see fit,” Witt said.

Meanwhile, John Lawson, another PowerSeller and owner of 3rd Power Outlet, is generally positive about the proposed changes. “There’ll be some bumpy roads, but they’re on a path to make this marketplace more vibrant,” Lawson said in a phone interview.

3rd Power Outlet, which sells urban wear and accessories and makes about 80 percent of its sales via eBay, will save about 50 percent in listing fees and, factoring in the increased commission, will have net savings in eBay costs of about 30 percent, Lawson said.

“It’ll have a nice impact on our eBay costs. It’s extra money in our pockets,” Lawson said. While not a major windfall, the savings will allow him to add more listings and do more auctions, he said.

Forbidding sellers from leaving negative feedback about buyers is a good move because, as eBay officials have argued, some sellers have used negative feedback to retaliate against buyers, he said. “A seller doesn’t have to leave any comment about buyers at all,” Lawson said. “The buyer has to be satisfied and must have the ability to leave a true comment.”

Still, he’s not crazy about new proposed fee discounts to PowerSellers based on them attaining certain levels of DSR (Detailed Seller Rating). For example, he finds that it’s off the mark for eBay to have a specific DSR category for shipping and handling, because, as a rule, no one likes to pay for this portion of the transaction. Merchants like himself, who sell to buyers overseas, are in particular disadvantage, because many buyers abroad don’t have a clear understanding of shipping costs from the U.S. to international locations, he said.

For others like Witt, DSR-based fee discounts are welcome. “It’s fine to offer incentives to sellers who strive for excellence. That was a good idea and they should expand on it. Offering rewards has always worked better than punishments,” she said.

These and other differing viewpoints about the plans reflect the ripple effect that eBay changes inevitably have, since there is such a wide variety of merchants on its platform. It remains to be seen whether eBay will want, and be able to refine further, its planned changes to achieve — as much as possible — a happy medium across its vast community of sellers.
