These are the best moments in the many interviews I did this past year. What was your favorite interview of mine from this past year? Please let me know in the comments section.
Despite my great interviews, sometimes things go really bad. My two worst interview moments of least year are as follows:
Now on to the best interview moments:
I ask prison exoneree and wrongful conviction activist Jeffrey Deskovic why if he murdered his classmate as a teen and why he confessed to it if not.
I catch “Epic Politics Man” Michael Shure of The Young Turks admitting media bias against alternative party candidates.

Here’s my annual list of the best music videos and the top 20 best songs of the year.
I love the art of music videos. Sometimes you can have a great song and lousy video, sometimes you get a lousy song and a great video, and sometimes you get the best of both worlds.

Here’s my annual list of the 20 worst songs of the year.
This lame duck is not taking off anywhere. Lousy lyrics: “I’ll be your prey, I’ll be your hunger. My blood will flow between your teeth.” and “Aaaa aaa aaa aa aa aa.”
Apparently this act is built around being a parody of Jersey Shore types – as if they weren’t already parodies of themselves. Lousy lyrics: “I’m a spoiled bitch if you know what I mean.” What could she possibly mean?
Sometimes it’s cute to watch Bieber pose as heterosexual but this knockoff of the *NSYNC song Girlfriend is painfully corny. Lousy lyrics: “Tell me what you like. Yeah tell me what you don’t. I could be your Buzz Light year, fly across the globe. I don’t never wanna fight yeah, you already know. Imma make you shine bright like you’re laying in the snow. Burr.” [Read More...]

Here’s a list of media coverage I received in 2012. Please note that in some instances I am not cited but one of my original videos is featured.
Excerpt: Blogger Jeff 4 Justice interviews the singer-songwriter about gays and body image.
Excerpt: Turns out, Jeff lives in a car, like many other people. Something I don’t (like to) think about too often. What is different about Jeff’s story is that he has taken to social media – blogs, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter – to help him get his message out.
Excerpt: If you check out some of Jeff’s channels, it’s obvious that he is frustrated, and I can understand that. I don’t agree with all of his comments and ideas but I applaud him for making an effort to get his voice out. [Read More...]

Here’s a list of media coverage I received in 2011. Please note that in some instances I am not cited but one of my original videos is featured.
Excerpt: “I think a person’s sexuality is clearly very important and relevant to who you are, that’s why so many (government leaders) list their marriage and their children as part of their bios) when they run”
Excerpt: …we need to provide social outlets, support groups for those who need them, and to empower activists. Not everyone needs to wave signs at demonstrations like I do. Whether at the forefront or behind the scenes or online or in the closet or out and visible, we can all help make things better.
Excerpt: A Democrat who agrees with another Democrat? Astonishing. Next thing you know Republicans will be agreeing with Republicans.
Excerpt: “I’m out here just to promote the idea that there are folks out here who love gay and lesbian folks… And that I hope people have information on what the bill is and what it would do.”
Excerpt: Phelps, wearing a “God hates fags” T-shirt, pointed to Jeff, organizer of a new local gay and lesbian group, who was waving a rainbow flag. “God says though shall not lie down with mankind as with womankind,” Phelps said. “He wants to call it a right. He wants to call it a privilege. That’s what parents have taught this abominable nation.” [Read More...]

Here’s a list of media coverage I received in 2010.
This was my least active year.
Excerpt: Having been in the closet, I empathize with those who feel they cannot be out. I empathize even more with the teens and those less financially-well-off who suffer the isolation and ostracizing that comes with being LGBT in Yuba-Sutter.
2010 04-08 Newspaper – Prop 14 ballot measure Prop. 14 Is Too Risky for the LGBT Community / Outword Magazine
Excerpt: If Prop. 14 passes, pro-equality state representative and congressional candidates will become unlikely to ever be competitive in regions dominated by anti-gay Republicans who win primary and general elections by margins of over 60% (the Yuba-Sutter area for example), because Republicans in those areas are vastly more likely to get the most votes in the primary election.
2010 03-23 Blog – Prop. 14 may work against pro-gay candidates / OutSacramento
Excerpt: Consider this scenario: in the primary election, if there are at least two Republican candidates and if there is only one unchallenged Democrat candidate (as is the case this year) and that Democrat became immersed in scandal to the extent that it cost him/her the election, the top two Republican candidates would emerge as the top two vote earners to face off in the General Election. Or suppose Republicans run two popular gubernatorial candidates (maybe another celebrity) and simply beat Democrats in the primary. Then, we’d be stuck with a November election without a Democrat candidate.
