Ryan Seacrest: Costume Comedy

Ryan Seacrest is already the man of many faces. He’s been known as a radio personality, a host, and a producer. You may have seen him do some work as a host of American Idol since 2002, and again in it’s reboot in early 2018! You also may have heard him on the radio on your way to work on weekday mornings called On Air with Ryan Seacrest.

Seacrest is also known for his work with the public. He founded Ryan Seacrest Distinction in 2014, which is a menswear brand intended to provide men with a more modern, coordinated look. His other mission is his Ryan Seacrest Foundation which works with pediatric hospitals to provide healing and inspiration to the children and families through music and entertainment.

Perhaps you remember the show Regis and Kelly. It has evolved over time and shifted into “Live with Kelly and Ryan” only recently in 2017 and has been gaining viewers ever since. The pair are always putting in work to provide entertainment for viewers, one of the more recent bits being “Live’s Best Halloween Show Ever: the ReBOOOOt”.

Ryan and Kelly gave fans a show with a lineup of throwback costumes in the spirit of Halloween. I Dream of Jeannie, Friends, All My Children, The Brady Bunch, Saved By the Bell, Laverne and Shirley, CHiPs, I Love Lucy and Charlie’s Angels were all themes demonstrated by the co-hosts.

American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, the man of many faces, was seen with makeup and glitter in his Shirley costume, noting that getting the makeup off was a tricky part. “I still have glitter somewhere”, Seacrest stated. Imagine Ryan Seacrest dressed in pink spanx. Hard as it may be, that’s exactly what he did in order to pull off his Genie costume with Kelly. He was seen in many other unique costumes, in case you need ideas for future Halloween costumes.

The two joked about bringing some of these old shows to the present, such as a mashup between All of Children and Hope and Faith. Only time will tell if they succeed in this mission. Check out American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest.

Information About Chainsmokers: Alex Pall

It was during an interview when Alex Pall was talking about his duo group called Chainsmokers. His partner in music is a talented producer called Andrew Taggart. They are a band under Adam management who also introduced them together. They both attended different Universities where Alex majored in music and Andrew majored in production.

They are a unique duo at their peerage who sings their own songs and mostly about their real lives. The reason behind it is that Alex Pall discussed and said that most of the people don’t write their songs lyrics. They have been working with songs writers and what they have been doing is to write with them. Some of their songs, they have written everything but in some, they are the ones guiding. It looks something different but its all about them. He gave an example where the fans are asking for an album. Having 12 songs but they all don’t relate to each other. In the songs, most are good songs but there are three that were hit. They have to nail down and come up with a cohesive bodywork which will be illustrating. For every DJ album, they have it, six pretty songs, interlude and couple of dance music.

When Alex was asked how he took it working with Halsey on their new song ” Closer”, all he said was that the female star was incredible. In the list of the artist, they could have liked to work with through the year, Halsey was all they wanted. She was their number one. They liked her because she is cool and unique having a strong voice making her unapologetically. That was what they wanted from an artist. The song was written by Andrew together with their friend during a tour bus. This collaboration was their excitement because it made a huge step following the right path and direction as long us Andrew was singing and then they produced the song themselves. In the music business, its something uncommon to sing and produce your own music. The coming of “Roses’ and ” Don’t let me down” is a good step which is a good identity standing point.

How The Chainsmokers Evolved With The Release Of “Sick Boy”

While some feel like The Chainsmokers have been in the mainstream for a long time they’ve actually only been a big act in the music industry for a bit over two years. Their very first hit song was in early 2015, which was “Roses”, and they have been on quite the streak of popular songs ever since. They have collaborated with a number of other musicians for some of these hits, such as Coldplay, Halsey, and Daya.

Their success creates a great deal of pressure to keep doing what they’re doing. They could just continue to pump out songs that are somewhere between top 40 pop and electric dance music. However, The Chainsmokers have resisted that siren call. Instead they recently put out a new song, “Sick Boy”, which is markedly different from what they have done before. This is a dark song about the 24/7 fame lifestyle as well as people’s narcissism when it comes to garnering attention on social media. They said this song launches a new era of music for them.

There are two members of this group, Alex Pall and Drew Taggert. In an interview Taggart says that they have grown a lot as artists in the past few years and wanted their music to grow along with them. He said the tone of society is darker now than it was a few years ago and they want their music to always reflect their own thoughts and feelings on things which of course change over time.

In this same interview Pall said that both of them hold themselves to high standards and they want to keep getting to new places musically.

They both think this new direction for The Chainsmokers is pretty exciting. He said for a quite awhile every week brought some new amazing stat for them in the industry. They are moving beyond that now, though, and aren’t really focusing on that type of stuff anymore. He said they are also really working hard to introduce new things to their live performances and putting on the best shows they can for their fans.

Lawrence Bender Movies

Lawrence Bender is a movie producer who has produced over 59 movies, winning numerous awards over his vast career. He’s produced many of Quentin Tarantino films over the years, and he’s actually had numerous films nominated for Oscar awards.

Lawrence Bender was born in New York, and he graduated from The University of Maine with a degree in civil engineering. He graduated in 1979 and pursued his passion of dance for some time before beginning to work on a syndicated TV show. From there he began producing movies in 1989, and Lawrence Bender’s career has only blossomed.

In 1997, Lawrence Bender produced Good Will Hunting, a massively successful drama starring Matt Damon, Robin Williams, Ben Affleck, and Minnie Driver. The movie takes place in Boston and is focused on a “southie” who is found out to be a mathematical genius. The film touches on a myriad of themes throughout. It touches on coming to terms with you who are and your past, which are journeys both the characters of Robin Williams and Matt Damon embark upon. Robin Williams is working to come to terms with the loss of his wife while trying to work through and develop the potential of Matt Damon’s character. It navigates friendship through the lens of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s characters- two lifelong friends who are facing the possibility of different destiny’s. It rounds out with love story, but my favorite part of the movie (and perhaps the most well-known part) is a speech in Boston Commons park by Robin Williams character. The speech acknowledges that all the genius in the world is not a substitute for real world knowledge and life experience. It’s incredibly moving and motivating, and by far one of the most loved monologue’s.

Good Will Hunting was one of three movies produced by Lawrence Bender that helped him get nominated for an Academy Award. Inglorious Bastards and Pulp Fiction are two other films that were nominated, as well. The list of critically acclaimed movies produced by Lawrence Bender goes on and on, and it’s likely they’ll continue coming!
