The tremendous popularity of online gambling sites shouldn’t be a secret, unless you’ve been living under a rock. Thanks to the introduction of safe internet access, these entertainment channels have sprouted up all over the globe. When it comes to jumping on the online gambling bandwagon, though, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind. If you reside in the United States, for example, you cannot gamble in offshore casinos, and you need to check your state regulations to see what is permitted.
If you want to look at casinos that have spent decades in the industry but have maintained the standard they started with, then you should be interested in this Casino X review. Casino X is a 2011 casino that has been established to meet up and compete with other casinos of its kind with international standards. This scale has not dropped for once, and this review will cover some of the most interesting things you look for in casinos, such as the registration process, bonuses, promotions, licensing and regulations, withdrawing and depositing. Any Casino X review would be one that’s worth reading, so please read on.
You can see what seems like a thousand different interpretations of Robert De Niro as the character Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver — a film I really did not enjoy all that much — this weekend only at Scorsese: A Tribute Art Show at Bold Hype Gallery in Chelsea. Geoffrey and I waited in line for 45 minutes (another first!) to get into the opening reception last night, and inside the gallery it was more packed than a can of sardines, as you’ll see in the photo below:
All of the art on display represents characters, scenes or themes from Director Martin Scorsese’s many iconic films, but mostly it’s about artists painting and drawing likenesses of characters in these films that were played by Robert DeNiro.
I enjoyed Bethany Marchman’s interpretation of Travis Bickle / DeNiro as a rabbit.
Here, De Niro shares the wall with Jody Foster as their characters from Taxi Driver in two paintings that are, surprisingly, not by Shepard Fairey.
A few other non-De Niro characters managed to earn space on the walls.
It was not that easy to photograph the show due to the crowds, but there are hundreds of paintings, sculptures and drawings on display, so if you’re a fan of Robert De Niro or the films of Martin Scorsese, this is a must see show!
The Martin Scorsese Tribute Exhibit will be up on Saturday April 20th and Sunday April 21st only, from 12 Noon to 5 PM each day! Bold Hype is located at 547 West 27th Street, 5th Floor, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
Back Story from Robert Jeffrey: I performed to Madonna’s “Vogue” in the Summer of 1991 when my parents took me to Hampton Beach Casino in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. A business in the casino at the time gave tourists the chance to lip-synch to their favorite pop songs in front of a blue screen background, and I was lucky enough to partake that summer. In honor of the twentieth anniversary of Madonna’s Truth Or Dare and in celebration of Madonna’s upcoming W.E., here is my nine year old self paying tribute to the woman who changed my life and continues to inspire me just as much today as twenty years ago.
Best. Video. Ever. Enjoy the weekend everybody!
Rare Photo of the Casino Burning Courtesy of Montreux Music Juxtaposed With a Shot of 1,721 Guitarists All Playing “Smoke on the Water” In Unison
On This Date, December 3rd in 1971: During a concert by Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention at a casino in Montreux, Switzerland, a fire started after an audience member shot a flare gun at the ceiling. The building burned down but there were no fatalities. Deep Purple were in Montreux at the time to record their album Machine Head and watched the fire burn from their hotel window. At their recording sessions, the band immortalized the incident in their song “Smoke on the Water,” which was released as a single the following year and became a huge hit. Zappa, who is mentioned in the lyrics, lost all his equipment in the fire.
