L4LM Exclusive Interview: Audrey Napoleon

first_imgImmediately recognizable by her unique style and long jet black hair, Live for Live Music spoke with Audrey Napoleon in the midst of Camp Bisco craziness this past Saturday. Touching on her new single “Dope a La Mode,” her many other artistic side projects, her thoughts on genres and new music to come.You’re currently promoting your new single, Dope a La Mode, how are things going with this is it being received the way you’d hoped?Yeah it is, it’s being received as a piece of art, which is perfect for me because that’s the only way it should be received. It was a film that I really wanted to do to express my version of a love story really and I wrote the whole treatment for it so yeah, it’s being received really well.The music video for it is awesome, it kind of makes me think of a wild twist on Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” music video. Was there a specific inspiration behind it or a message you were trying to convey?Aw thank you. The inspiration behind it came from where a lot of my ideas come from, which are my nightmares. My nightmares and my dreams. I don’t know if I’m to convey a message, so much as a beautiful piece of art as a whole song with the film.You describe your sound as underground pop. Can you explain this classification?Underground pop is a name that I created for what I’m doing. Mainly because I feel like to put something into a genre is a bit ridiculous because genres are always in flux. One day it can be trance and the next day called progressive. I just decided to wrap one big word around it and call it underground pop because it’s kind of the in-between of the entire spectrum.The release of your last EP Ornamental Ego’s was around this time last July. Although you’ve released some banging singles since then can we look forward to a new album soon?Oh it was! July 24th. And yeah, I’ve actually written four other songs that I’m singing on as well, I play two of them for you guys today, their in the middle of my show. It’s always very scary playing something I haven’t done before. To hear my voice that loud, it’s a bit nerve-wracking, but I’m not sure if I’m going to do it as singles yet or if I want to do it as an EP. However, I’m always open to it if art leads me there. It’s all what the art tells me to do.Do you have a favorite song to play to right now to really get the crowd on its feet?I reckon my favorite song to play would be “Poison” the Jupiter Ace remix. I love it, it’s really perfect and I always play that or Banana Soda es Muy Loco, that one always gets them going.What song of yours have you been most excited to hear played by another artist?Banana Soda has been getting a lot of love lately, Tiesto has been playing it, Dada Life, and then Eric Prydz did his own mashup of it last year so that’s always fun to hear. I didn’t even realize that, it’s just such a ridiculous song to me but it seems to latch on. Are you in the habit on working on new productions while touring or is it something you focus more on while at home?Oh no, it goes hand in hand.How do you manage that?Well, I’m performing I get so much inspiration off the fans that sometimes I just go back to the hotel and write a little bit. There’s actually a lot of down time, a lot of time to sit and write.Aside from producing music you’ve also created your own clothing line, how do you balance so many different forms of art at once?I have no fucking idea. I guess it just goes day by day some days the music takes over and other days the fashion takes over. I have my duties for Heineken as their ambassador, we’ve actually re-launching the campaign in 2014 and it’ll be launched in 28 countries. So I guess it really just depends on the day.Does music always come first?Art comes first. So whichever I wake up and happens to be at the front of my head, that’s the one I’m going with.In an industry that’s predominately male, do you find yourself facing different challenges because you’re a woman?Oh no, what is a male and a female? Who cares?Can you share with us an experience with a fan that has really stuck with you?I have a fan that tattooed my face on their arm. I’m going to have to make sure he’s a fan for life, I don’t want to upset him ever.You’ve also produced your own short film series. Can you tell us a little bit about this and how it’s connected to your music?I believe that visual is very important in telling a story. I didn’t want to do it in typical music video fashion I wanted to do it in short films. I have a very vivid imagination and I needed another way to express it.If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be?David Bowie, Marilyn Manson.Any advice for up and coming artists?I always give this advice, and that is to stay to stay true to your art. Because if you are true to your art and to yourself, no one can ever give you shit about what you’re doing, about what you’ve done, about what you’re going to do because its your art. The only other thing I’d like to say is that I love my fans very much.last_img read more

Kevin Harvick stretches fuel mileage for Michigan victory

first_imgRecovering from a punctured-right front tire that cost him track position early in the race, Kevin Harvick passed Joey Logano on Lap 183 of 200 and cruised to a 1.595-second victory in Sunday’s Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan International Speedway.During a closing 48-lap green-flag run that began with a restart on Lap 153, Harvick charged from seventh to first, recording his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season, his third at the 2-mile track and the 47th of his career.RELATED: Race results | Stage recapsSHOP: Harvick gear“It was a day of a little bit of adversity that we were able to overcome,” Harvick said. “We had a really fast car all weekend. Our car handled really well today, and with the multiple lanes (thanks in part to the application of traction compound in the high grooves), we were able to run all three lanes pretty well and make our way through traffic.“They (the team) put a really fast race car on the track, and we were able to capitalize on it, so that’s always fun.”When Harvick crossed the finish line, leading his 22nd lap of the afternoon, Denny Hamlin was running second after Logano pitted for a splash of fuel on Lap 197. Kyle Larson ran third, followed by Martin Truex Jr. and Daniel Suarez, who re-entered the playoff picture when two drivers on the bubble ahead of him — Jimmie Johnson and Clint Bowyer — had disastrous days in the Irish Hills.Thirty-one laps into the race, Harvick steered his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford onto pit road with a flat right-front tire. But with the first 60-lap stage running green from start to finish, Harvick was able to drive up to sixth by the end of the stage.Martin Truex Jr. won Stage 1 after starting from the rear because of two pre-race inspection failures, but his No. 19 Toyota wasn’t as strong in traffic late in the race than it had been early on. Kyle Busch won Stage 2, but his car, like Truex’s, wasn’t as effective in traffic after pit stops at the end of the stage scrambled the running order.Likewise, Hamlin’s car was best in the heat of the day on a hot, slick track, but the speed in Harvick’s car prevailed as the asphalt cooled down.“Well, it seemed like we generally had the best-handling car when it was really hot and slick, but as the day went on and the track cooled off, the guys that had built more speed into their car, it kind of handicapped it for them,” Hamlin said. “Nothing I could really do, just didn’t have enough speed. The 4 was about a half second faster than us in qualifying, and when we were holding it wide open there at the end, just couldn’t overcome it.”Kyle Busch ran sixth, and Ryan Preece came home seventh, posting his first top 10 outside of Daytona or Talladega. The Hendrick Motorsports trio of William Byron, Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman completed the top 10.Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson wasn’t as fortunate. On Lap 15, his No. 48 Chevrolet slapped the outside wall, severely damaging the right side of the car. Johnson finished 34th, eight laps down.Bowyer’s misfortune came on Lap 137, after contact with the No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford of Paul Menard. Bowyer’s car slammed into the Turn 3 wall, and efforts to repair the car proved futile. Bowyer retired from the race in 37th place.WATCH: Johnson hits wall early | Bowyer clips wall lateJohnson dropped two places to 18th in the series standings, 12 points behind Bowyer and 12th-place finisher Ryan Newman, tied for the last Playoff-eligible position. Suarez moved past Johnson to 17th in the standings and trails Newman and Bowyer by four points with three races left before the cut-off at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.The series’ next race is scheduled for Saturday night (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, PRN, SiriusXM) at Bristol Motor Speedway.Contributing: Staff reportslast_img read more

Emergystat Employees’ Paychecks Bounce

first_imgJACKSON, Miss. — At least some employees’ paychecks from the Emergystat — the Alabama-based company who halted services in almost two-dozen Mississippi counties Thursday — have bounced. The Tax Commission has been working with Emergystat for some time to resolve its financial problems before the company halted services, Waterbury said. “This is devastating to me,” said Pierce who has six children ranging from ages 13 to 2. “We’re employed by another service for now, but we’re broke.” If counties or their temporary emergency service provider does not need the ambulances or other equipment, then the Tax Commission is seizing it, Waterbury said. “People all over the state are in charge of particular areas,” Waterbury said. Pierce said his supervisor at the Newton County site called a meeting late Wednesday night to tell employees the bad news. The Tax Commission started to seize Emergystat’s assets — cars, ambulances, equipment and others — Thursday. “It goes straight to voicemail,” Pierce said. The company, which was the sole provider of emergency medical response service in the counties, owes the state $787,715.30 in unpaid income taxes since 2005, said Tax Commission spokeswoman Kathy Waterbury on Friday. Former Emergystat employee Mark Pierce of Philadelphia, found out Friday that the most recent paycheck he received from the company bounced when he tried to buy lunch at a Sonic and his debit card was declined. “She was crying and said that as of midnight we’re all unemployed,” Pierce said. “Some people are a lot worse off than me. They’re just sick. We don’t know what we’re going to do to make ends meet. We live pay check to pay check.” “We’re seizing any assets available, but the primary assets are ambulances,” Waterbury said. “So we are being very, very cautious that if those ambulances are needed, we are not seizing them. We’re working with county authorities in every case.” Pierce has tried to contact Emergystat about the bounced paycheck, but his calls have not been returned from the payroll department. Emergystat, which halted service Wednesday at midnight in 23 counties across the state, has not yet returned calls for comment from The Clarion-Ledger. “We’ve been working with them on this for awhile,” Waterbury said. “We’re trying to resolve this. This did not just happen over night.”The next step is for the Tax Commission to post advertisements in newspapers in areas where assets were seized, Waterbury said. The ads will provide the date, time and location of the auction of the seized property, she said.last_img read more

Program diversifies campus

first_imgThe 2012 Hesburgh International Scholars Experience (HISE) will bring 60 accepted international students to the University on Saturday. Julie Denkler, Assistant Director in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, said Notre Dame is greatly benefited by the Hesburgh International Scholars program and its ability to continue the diversification of the student body. “A campus community is always benefited by diversity,” she said. “We see diversity in numerous ways, [such as] geographic diversity, cultural and ethnic diversity, racial diversity, as well as religious diversity among others.” Denkler said this is the fifth year the Office of Undergraduate Admissions has brought international prospective students through the Hesburgh International Scholars Experience. This year the Office of Undergraduate Admissions accepted the most international students to date, with students from 22 different countries. “Two years ago, we expanded the program to include students from Europe, and this year, we invited students from Canada as well,” she said. “We are trying to give more of our top admitted international students the opportunity to visit campus and see for themselves whether Notre Dame is a place they might want to spend the next four years of their lives.” Sophomore Paulina Rullán, an undergraduate leader for the HISE planning committee, said the diversity international students bring to campus is essential for an optimal college experience. “Notre Dame puts a huge effort to bring the best international students and be part of our family,” she said. “This not only gives international students the opportunity to grow in another culture and have a great education from Notre Dame but it also brings diversity and makes the campus a more interesting educational institution for both faculty and students.” Rullán said one of the events includes a meeting with University President Emeritus Fr. Theodore Hesburgh. “The program was created in honor of Fr. Hesburgh’s interest and passion for international students,” she said. “We have an incredible group of scholars coming to visit this year, and we thought that meeting with Fr. Hesburgh would just epitomize their visit.” Sophomore Ignacio Aranguren, a 2011 Hesburgh International Scholar, said the HISE weekend prepared him for his time at Notre Dame. “I remember feeling very thankful in the beginning of freshman year for HISE weekend,” he said. “It was really a great way not only to see life at Notre Dame first hand, but I was also able to meet the community that would be the essential part of my college experience.” Aranguren said he hopes prospective students will take full advantage of the opportunities this university will offer to them. “I hope [the Hesburgh scholars] understand how important they are to the University,” he said. “If they choose to be part of Notre Dame, they’ll be representing their family, country and culture at this school. Thanks to HISE, when they return in the fall, they’ll hit the ground running.”last_img read more

Damon West, others denied Paycheck Protection because of criminal history

first_img It was a gut punch for West. In 2009, he was sentenced to life in prison but made parole in 2015 and now works as an author, teacher and speaker, visiting schools and correctional facilities to talk about how he turned his life around.“You go and you pay your debt and you’re still paying your bill,” he said.The Paycheck Protection Program, which already doled out $350 billion and is now awaiting another cash infusion, is supposed to be a lifeline for businesses teetering on the edge, helping them stay afloat and keep their employees on the payroll during the pandemic. WASHINGTON (AP) — Damon West was hoping the government’s coronavirus rescue package for small business owners would help replace the income he’s lost now that he can’t travel the country as a keynote speaker.But then he got a call from his accountant. A question on the application form asked whether, within the last five years, he had been convicted of or pleaded guilty or no contest to a felony or “been placed on any form of parole or probation.”Another asked whether anyone who owns at least 20 percent of the company was incarcerated, under indictment, on probation or parole. If so, they are ineligible. Many people with felony convictions, he noted, have been forced to start their own businesses and become entrepreneurs because it’s so hard to get hired with a record.For West, who lives in southeast Texas and describes himself as the “poster child” of someone who reformed their life after years in prison for organizing dozens of burglaries, the restriction “felt kind of like a kick in the gut, a punch in the gut,” especially given the administration’s talk of second chances.President Donald Trump achieved a rare bipartisan victory in 2018 when he signed criminal justice reform legislation called the “First Step Act.” He has since highlighted efforts to help formerly incarcerated people find jobs and talked about helping the “forgotten” men and women. His campaign spent millions on a Super Bowl ad that featured the story of Alice Marie Johnson, a nonviolent drug offender whose life sentence Trump commuted after reality TV star Kim Kardashian West championed her case. The ad showed footage of the emotional moment when Johnson was released from prison and reunited with her family.“Thanks to President Trump, people like Alice are getting a second chance,” the ad said.Johnson said in an interview Monday that she was aware of the small business rule and and that she and others had succeeded in getting the administration to exempt those with misdemeanor records and to shorten the time frame for convictions from seven to five years.“I’m so sorry for the small business owners,” she said, blaming the speed with which the program had been pulled together. “It’s really heartbreaking that this couldn’t have been fixed. … We are ringing this bell of what is going on. I want you to know that we are not being silent on this.”Trump appeared unaware of the provision when he was asked about it during his daily briefing on Monday.“I’d like to look into that,” he told a reporter.Advocates like Mark Holden from the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity have also been making calls and sending letters to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and the Small Business Administration urging them to amend the policy as they finalize a package to give the program another cash infusion.Holly Harris, executive director of the Justice Action Network, said her group had been reaching out to Republicans on Capitol Hill to try to get their support.That thought is seconded by Shon Hopwood, a professor at Georgetown law school who began his legal career in federal prison writing briefs for other prisoners.“The federal government has made a decision that they’re unworthy of assistance,” he said. “If they get out and feel, ‘I’m never going to get a shot at real life again,’ that’s usually when they get back to the things they know.”center_img Independent contractors and those who are self-employed also qualify. But not, it turns out, if they have had certain run-ins with the law.The Small Business Administration, which oversees the program, did not respond to questions about why the exclusions had been added. But ineligible would-be applicants and their advocates say the restrictions are a slap in the face for those who have served their time, especially from an administration that has trumpeted second chances. They note many businesses run by formerly incarcerated people employ other people with criminal records who could be driven back to crime if they lose jobs.Robert Rooks, co-founder of the Alliance for Safety and Justice, a national criminal justice reform organization, said he’d heard from multiple small business owners frustrated by the provision.“I’m hearing that people have worked their entire life to get to this place where they have something they can call their own. They’ve paid their debt to society, clawed their way to this point, and should be able to get what everybody else is able to get to keep their business afloat,” he said.last_img read more
