Podcast Show Network is back this week

Many of you know that we have been hard at work filming and editing International Week 2008 and the Entertainer Of The Year pageant.  For many of our international fans, local fans (and those who don’t give 3 shits about pageants- LOL), we took a few weeks off as our video production schedule had been to intensive to keep the podcast shows going.  While relief is not here yet, the podcast shows are back with 5 brand new shows this week.

The Drag Queen Posse Podcast Show - Number 3

The Drag Queen Posse Podcast Show - Number 3

Our Ft. Lauderdale friends over at the Drag Queen Posse show are at it again with an all new show talking missing money, lawsuits and undercover bathroom investigations.

Don’t forget to check out our resident DJ from New York – DJ Carlos Dali as he spins new house music this week called “Wild Pitched Pussy – Part 1” (don’t ask – I don’t know where he gets the names from) along with our weekly queer history facts and gay news for this week.  And of course, pageant fans don’t forget our live show every Thursday at 7 pm Eastern Standard Time called the Pageant Soup Podcast Show.  This week (or rather today Aug 7th), we talk EOY with the current reigning Mr. EOY for 2008 Savion Simpson Black.

Happy listening everyone.  Enjoy the shows….

DVD Editing update #1 – EOY and International Week 2008

Hey everyone,

Here is a quick update on a variety of things concerning our most recent filming productions.  Things are pretty hectic around here as I am trying to update the new pageant pay per view site, upload hours upon hours of video clips, modify the website, put together orders and process orders.  It’s crazy…..but here we go:

1)  The pre-order special has ended for EOY videotapes.  It ran longer than expected as I did not have a chance to update the website – so for all of you people who ordered in the last 3 days – Merry Christmas (LOL – just kidding)  – glad you were able to take advantage of the pre-order.  I still have 4 people who ordered at EOY this year with Blossom – your orders have not been processed for various reasons – you will still get the pre-order special as soon as we clear up your payment questions;

2)  I am about 3 hours away from the first draft of Finals night Mr. and Miss International Week.  This was a 3 camera shoot so uploading 15 hours of video for one night took some time.  Then I have to sync all cameras together from all tapes (so many tapes) and then sit through the first viewing of the pageant.  I am almost done with that.  Then I will go through and edit the tape down, add in the names and effects, put some special backgrouds in, color correct some camera shots and put the 2nd draft together.  I hope to have that done by Sunday.  Saturday I am filming a wedding so I won’t be editing all day Saturday.

3)  I have started uploading and capturing Thursday night and Friday night of EOY.  Adrian will be editing parts of EOY starting with the Mr. Competition.  I still have to drop the 2nd camera down but the 1st camera is almost complete.  I will have that done within the hour.

4)  Many of you have already seen the preview clips of International Week and EOY.  But if you haven’t, you can check them out at our all gay video sharing website called Planet Q TV.  We hope you enjoy them!!

5)  The Pageant Soup Podcast Show was cancelled today as well as the other updates to the Podcast network as I am too swamped to do the show today.  The network will resume its normal programming next week.  We are looking forward to inviting Nina West & Savion Simpson Black on the show.  Be sure to check out episode #41 of the Pageant Soup Podcast Show as we talked to Danille Revlon who won the Miss International Plus competition.

6)  If you ordered DVDs from us in the last couple of days not related to EOY, your order will go in the mail tomorrow.  Sorry for the delay.

That’s it for now.  I am off to finish the first draft of International Week.  Everyone have a great day and thanks for your continued support.

Congrats Nina West – EOY 2008 – Some Notes and News

Nina West

Nina West

Wow…what a contest….I have to first say congratulations to Nina West and Savion Simpson Black for an outstanding job winning Entertainer of the Year 2008 and to all of the contestants who competed this year.   This was an outstanding year for pageant entertainment.

After 17 lonnnggg hours of driving, we finally made it back to sunny Miami, FL.  While I enjoy filming this year, man driving that long is crazy – but we had a crew of 4 this year and plane tickets are way to high (LOL).  And to make matter worse, when we got back, I had to go sit in meetings for 3 hours about how we are going to tackle the next 3 weeks of video productions.  I am whipped.

Now,  Adrian and I will begin the long long process of editing and putting together this year’s EOY videotape.  First off, many of you took advantage of our pre-order special.  THANK YOU.  I will fire off a confirmation email to you Wednesday or Thursday.  I just finished printing all of the pre-orders in the order they were received – so you are all set.  Second, International Week 2008 was filmed by us the weekend before EOY.  Sorry EOY fans – I have to do International Week first and get it done before starting on EOY.  Third, I have a wedding I did weeks before both pageants that I have to finished and I have two weddings coming up in the next two weekends in August.  The next 4 weeks are going to be a real challenge for us as we try to quickly put together these DVDs while still giving you a great presentation.  BUT WE ARE UP FOR THE CHALLENGE.  I will be keeping everyone up to date on this blog on the progress of the DVD, let you know what I am working on and some of the effort needed to put together these DVDs.  I did this last year and people seemed to like it so I will do it again this year.

I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to all of our fans and supporters.  Those who came by to say hi (in Baltimore or Louisville), those who

Thank you!

Thank you!

have thanked us in threads, forums or in person and those who have supported us over the years.  Many of you knew us back in our Houston days when we were Black Stylez Entertainment.  A lot has changed since 1999 and we have gotten much bigger and and I hope much better.  It is because of your support and commitment that Adrian, Tara, Blossom, Eric, Ailyn and myself continue to do what we do and love bringing you all great LGBT entertainment – whether its pageants, podcasting, videos, whatever.  So I just want to personally say thank you for your support – PLEASE always share with us and let us know how we can do things better for you.

Until the next blog, tomorrow – LET THE EDITING BEGIN.  But first – my bed is callling me.  Oh, watch the preview videos of International Week 2008 and EOY 2008 on Planet Q TV – our own video sharing website just for our community.
