Bad Seed Rising is one of the promising stars in Baltimore’s rock scene. Already signed to Road Runner Records, they’re the ones to watch. Their young age may seem like a novelty, but once you witness them live, in person, you’ll know that they’re so much more than a gimmick. I first shot them at the Charm City Fest back in 2012 and was blown away then. They’ve only grown and gotten an even stronger hold of the stage since then.

Last night we went to the 144th Ringling Bros Greatest Show on Earth at the Verizon Center in Washington DC. As you know from my interview with ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson, we had been counting down the days towards the big night.
As the ultimate sign of how far we’ve come as MillionairePlayboy.com, I was in the pit shooting BUSH on our twelfth anniversary of launching the pop culture site. I’ve been a big fan of BUSH for years, ever since Sixteen Stone hit my ears, freshman year of college. I remember putting that CD in my stereo and not needing to swap it out for another disk for days at a time. Click below for more pics.
Today is the twelfth anniversary of MillionairePlayboy’s lauch, so I’m starting off reviewing the One:12 Dark Knight Batman.
One of my favorite sights at the 2015 Toy Fair was Mezco’s One:12 Batman, based on Frank Miller’s Dark Knight series. Low and behold my persistence paid off and I was gifted the black and white version for being a loyal supporter of Mezco’s (This was my 14th Toy Fair). I was so inspired by the great look they captured, I took it into the studio and had a great time playing with the lighting and what not. Click below for some more pics of this amazing piece, as well as an overview of Mezco’s Toy Fair offering this year.
It was on 03.03.03, twelve years ago, that we launched MillionairePlayboy.com. We’ve gone through some changes, we’ve covered 13 Toy Fairs, we’ve covered concerts and beauty pageants and been featured in The Washington Post and on G3TV. Stay tuned today as I add some new features, look back through some old ones, and celebrate how far we’ve come. Oh yeah, I’m photographing the BUSH concert tonight. Not too shabby.
We’ve been waiting months to bring home Disney’s latest animated feature (and third highest grossing ever!) Big Hero 6. It’s a refreshing change from Frozen for the dude Disney fans out there… but don’t get me wrong, boys and girls thoroughly enjoy Baymax and his cohorts. But some of us take comfort in the lack of songs.
Big Hero 6 is a great superhero tale about a boy and his robot, who team up with his four friends to defeat a mysterious supervillain. You’ll fall in love immediately with Baymax, our unconventional healthcare companion. Click below for my review.
I had a wonderful time checking out all the new sets at LEGO this year. I dug seeing the new Minecraft, Star Wars and Scooby Doo sets, as well as a couple new Lego Movie sets. We’re finally getting the double-decker couch! I’m also very excited about the Jurassic World sets coming out closer to the movie. Click below for a ton of pics.
Sweet! It’s playmobil time. I’ve been covering playmobil’s Toy Fair booth since 2001, and it’s typically my favorite appointment. There is some exciting surprises coming up, so stay tuned for word on those. In the meantime, let’s check out the new line-up for 2015, including the Super 4!
