The Sandman Goes to the Beach and Makes Waves: Review of Adam Sandler at the Hard Rock in Atlantic City with Rob Schneider

Review by Suzanne Ordas Curry

I will confesss, I can't get enough of #AdamSandler, so this review may be a bit boased. But, isn't that who goes to concerts but their diehard fans?

That being said I am not a fan of ALL Adam Sandler movies, I skew to the comedic and romantic comedy ones, not so much the ones made with lots of male humor.

I can't get enough of The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, or even Blended. those are the ones off the top of my head I can think of but every weekend I flip through the cable stations- especially trusty TBS to see what Adam Sandler flick they may be playing on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

So when tickets went on sale I got them the first day. Good thing, as this concert in Atlantic City at the Hard Rock Casino on the first night of summer was totally sold out.

Interview: Wé McDonald from NBC's The Voice is Sweet and Powerful in Many Ways - See Her at the Iridium and in NJ in June

#Wé McDonald
Interview by Suzanne Ordas Curry

If you don't already know this Jersey girl, meet Wé McDonald (pronounced Way) from Season 11 of NBC's The Voice. She was a semifinalist, taking third place that season. During that season this young girl partnered up with such legends as John Legend and Alicia Keys, and her voice went down in history. Wé  has an intensely sweet talking voice, and I heard that during our interview. But once she sings, the power and melody envelops you. And what I learned, is that this talented young lady is not just powerful in her music, but powerful in her beliefs and deeds.  At such a young age, Wé  considers herself very blessed and lucky and knows it's her time to give back. The platform of #The Voice opened up her eyes as well as her vocal chords. It not only gave everyone the chance to hear her voice, but also the opportunity to start giving of herself.

The Disney and Nickelodeon Effect 

Ever since I was a young girl, at the tender age of seven, I knew an ordinary life wasn’t for me. I wanted a different kind of ordinary, I wanted to be on TV. I wanted to make filming an episode once a week the normal for me. I was a consistent viewer of the Disney channel and Nickelodeon. I remember being attracted to, “That’s so Raven” and “Lizzie Mcguire.” The stars, Raven and Hilary Duff, had so much presence and it instantly got me hooked. I would sit on my couch and stare at the TV. I could’ve been there for hours, and I wasn’t just watching the show, I was admiring the actresses.
