Memorial Gay

It is Memorial Day weekend. An American holiday to acknowledge and pay respect to those who served America by becoming defenders and warriors of the nation. Be it national, political and/or personal… Battles wide and local are fought everyday. It is in the doing that courage is merited. I still remember those Willing Warriors who took action and inspired.

Dani Arranka “Be Like Me” Music Video

Dani Arranka’s “Be Like Me’ video has arrived!

On Saturday, April 16th, Dani Arranka’s “Be Like Me” music video debuted on the big screen in the Real Art Ways‘ theatre. It was a fabulous event full of amazing performances by Dani Arranka and local talent, such as Celcius911. Dani’s birthday celebration was full of glamour and electricity.

With artistry and a style that’s all his own, Dani Arranka is truly one of Hartford’s rising stars.

Who’s Johnny?” She said and smiled in her special way. Well Johnny’s the “J” in the VJ of course. Actually the J stands for John, but my friends and family from home call me Johnny. When I was growing up I always got the “Heeeeeere’s Johnny!,” “Johnny be good,” “Johnny,.. angry Johnny,” the list goes on and on and on… I particularly got a chuckle when people would say “Johnny 5 is alive” from the 1986 hit movie, Short Circuit.

I stopped introducing myself as Johnny when I left my hometown of Danbury to go to university in New Haven, CT. I was in a bigger, new city meeting new people. I had to use my full name for filling out registation forms and when talking with professors. So I started introducing myself with my full first name when meeting fellow students. The reply was “What? Do you have a nick-name?” I hesitated and probably shook my head. The thing is that I never thought of Johnny as a nick-name. I just thought of it as my name and before I could say anything he said “Can I call you VJ for short?” I said sure, that’s cool. And then it stuck. Everyone started calling me VJ. I was in a new place with a new name, ready to be the new me and do new things. Young and innocent Johnny, made way for experimental/try anything VJ…

Fast forward ten or so years later and I’ve moved back to my hometown. Where old friends and family know me as Johnny. Now I have new friends that know me as the cute, gay, wise, sexy Johnny. The new Johnny is here and my birthday draws near. Come February 2nd, 2011 I will have reach the age of thirty-five. I find myself at a new reboot in my life. I’m working part time and have time to go back to school. I feel like I’m starting over again… in search of a new job in the even bigger, New York City.

“Some say he’s nuts. Some say he’s bolts. But can Number Five make it in the big, bad city? Keep your wires crossed.” ~ Short Circuit 2

R.I.P. 2010, Johnny5 and VJnetcast.com

My PowerMac G5 Dual 2.7GHz, also known as Johnny5, that I got back in 2005 suffered a coolant leak and has passed away. This has been a known issue with this model. Yesterday the Apple Genius at the Apple Store said that Apple considers the machine “Vintage” aka “Obsolete” and will not perform any repairs on it. They aren’t even able to open and handle the computer because it’s considered toxic. I asked if they could remove the coolant system or despose of the part and and they still refused.

The fumes from Johnny5’s shell has been setting off my carbon-monoxide detector. It’s a bit disturbing so I put Johnny5 in another place until I can send it off to be recycled. Luckily the data on the hard drive is fine. I plan on getting this docking station so I can still use it to store files.

December 10, 2005 – December 30, 2010

Johnny5 loved making new friends, playing music, surfing the net, playing with pixels and podcasting. The PowerMac G5 is survived by it’s Apple Cinema 23″ HD Display, the original iSite, the 5th generation 60GB video iPod and the adorable iMac G4 (17-inch Flat Panel) and Johnny6 aka the 15-inch MacBook Pro 2.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
Another death and birth in the VJnetcast family is that of the VJnetcast.com and VJnet.org domane names. 2010 has been a year of financial struggle and the re-newing of site registation was not in the budget. Unfortunately we have lost the ownership of vjnetcast.com. The boys from TheOccasionalFag.com were kind enough to e-mail me a screenshot of how vjnetcast.com now “helps you get hard!” Check it out below. lol

If things aren’t hard enough and you like ’em easy, now you can visit me at the new VJnetcast.tk (because it cost money to have a .com) or use vjnet.wordpress.com if you like ’em long.

From these endings on the last day of the year 2010. May your 2011 be filled with new beginnings, joy and prosperity. Have a Happy New Year! BustB!G Live Dream!
