The day has finally arrived…

This new video from the Guys has it all. On its surface it is a promo to get you to watch Camp Rock 2 (which premiered tonight, by the way), but is oh so much more. First we have all of Bulldozer there. Second they are being funny because they are being guys and they are not afraid of little girls thinking they are gross (FYI they are ALL gross). And third, well… you will just have to watch it…. after the jump…

Cambio.com … This just may not suck as much as Fan Family Experience!

OK, before you let loose in the comments calling me a naive Kool-Aid drinker, let me just say that my expectations were so low for today’s announcement that a well-produced two and half (or so) minute video filled with a bunch of my favorite people struck me the right way.

What we know:

  • It is a website that will have lots of stuff and has the possibility to be cool (or not).
  • “Cambio” means change (which makes you want to nibble on your finger nails), but it also means exchange (which I think is more of what they are going for).

Pros and cons for this not-yet-fully-revealed website, plus the announcement video after the jump.

Looking good out there!

So…still no definitive word on when we will next get to bask in the musical vibery of the Jonas boys et al, collectively or separately (can you believe “Who I Am” has been out for almost 2 months?  Where did the time go?) And the same goes for Bulldozer (we’re waiting! so patiently!) but this past week was a fairly busy one on an official level, anyway…

Joe & Demi surprised us (or at least me?) with an unexpected turn on the high profile (if not always hospitable) American Idol soundstage to perform their Friends for Change duet single “Make a Wave”. It was a polarizing choice for many fans, but they did an admirable job which received the usual fair balance of adoration & praise to criticism & disdain, from all the usual camps.  Joe redeemed himself at least a bit, in some eyes, for his less than stellar Idol judging stint, especially with the post-performance stage banter, and Joe & Demi continue to blur the lines & fuel plenty of chatter over their public/private pairing with a post-show visit to Ryan Seacrest (see below the chop).

The KCAs followed the typical awards show arc of a slow build to an ultimately anticlimactic result. The main benefit for Jonas fans was a new set of red orange carpet shots since – in contrast to their last visit to the KCA stage and their pretty adorable hosting duties at the Teen Choice Awards, what a difference a year makes! – they never touched the stage, neither to perform nor to collect a blimp in either of their nominated categories. (They were passed over as Favorite Musical Group in favor of the Black Eyes Peas, and Nick & Joe losing Favorite TV Actor to Dylan Sprouse.)  This all had a bit of a bizarro world tone to it, for anysuperfan who watched, but such is Nickelodeon, & kids, circa 2010. But I think Jonas fans and Jonases alike can easily take this “crushing defeat” with grace…right? 😉

Off the tube, we continue to be treated to pretty steady Twitter updates from Nick, Joe & Bulldozer. John Taylor celebrated his 28th birthday (Happy Happy, JT!).  John also gave confirmation that the suspected Papa Jonas Twitter is the real deal (and there’s some pretty sweet stuff in there). While Kevin remains….mysterious in that venue (love you anyway, Kevin!), is it just me or have Nick’s tweets been a little warmer, sweeter and less vague in the past few days?  I know I’ve enjoyed them.

All of this said, the biggest news of the week has to be saved for last.

You already know about it, I am sure. Like all good champions of their field, The Grog Blog has re-emerged from premature retirement. We have all experienced or heard of the power of JB bassist Greg Garbowsky’s blog in the past, and now the real deal is at hand again!!  If you haven’t yet, make sure to go back and read all of the old, now-revived posts (and videos!) before settling in for the future of Grog. And this is for you, Garbo:

After the jump, you’ll find a few videos from the weeks’ activities (Idol & KCA related).  What do you think of all these new developments?!

Well, this has been an interesting week for Jonas fans…

Just as more of us began to grow accustomed to to the Jonas Brothers hiatus which had a primary media focus on the Nick Jonas & the Administration Tour & lead-up to the side project’s impending album, with Kevin Jonas marriage news sprinkled in, another shakeup in the Jonasphere: Joe Jonas is most definitely back to work. Surely not in the same way that Nick is, but definitely *on*.  Real entertainment news outlets are talking about it now, so it’s officially fair game around these parts. So what of it, Revelers?

Jump with me…

menwholovemusic[Update – 9-9-10]

They’re Baaack! The 2010 M.E.N. season has begun! Mostly due to the fact that I decided to go to bed early on September 7th, the Guys on the Bus decided to get back to giving us great music as they wound down from a show. What joy!

For the sake of continuity, we decided to add on to the original M.E.N. post. This way it will be all in one place. The SR Blip.fm playlist continues to be updated, and I will add iMixes as I get to them.


[Original Post]

Oh my gosh!… the last few weeks have been a blur of life obligations and a lil Jonasing, and the content on the blog has gotten a bit weak (from Mememoi and me anyway). I am here in an attempt to rectify that with a good and thorough post about Music Exploration Nights (aka M.E.N.)!

Come along and experience music exploration nights – including the

FULL M.E.N. PLAYLIST on blip.fm!

M.E.N. are what happen when JT, Ryan, Garbo, Rob, Jack, and Casper (aka Bulldozer – the Jonas Brothers’ backing band – and friends) get on the bus after a show with a long ride ahead of them. Likely still a little wired after having tens of thousands of people scream in their general directions and no doubt putting on a spectacular show, they sit back, relax, break out their iPods and share music with each other. Thanks to Twitter, and the diligent efforts of Mr. John Lloyd Tayor (*heart bubbles*), they also share with us. The result is (to date) 100-plus (and growing) songs of wide ranging genres with each night standing as a spectacular playlist to explore.

These M.E.N.  are special because, well – quite frankly – they really don’t have to share anything like this with us. They are all obviously passionate about music, and the lists also act as a primer of sorts for the thousands of JB fans who follow John (and the rest of them) because they are fans of JB (much like our own selves). And…these fans may or may not actually have any real interest in music. There…I said it. But I think it is true – not for all, but surely for some. So this is a way for the ‘Dozers to reveal a little more about themselves, while introducing us all to their idea of awesome music.

Go ahead and JUMP…
