A few nights ago, I had the great fortune of rubbing shoulders (read: taking photos with) some of the most influential people in the world, according to Time Magazine.  My deepest gratitude to those who took some time out from being so bad ass on the world stage to say hello to their favorite blogger, G  🙂

It’s sort of bizarre to me that years ago, I wrote a letter to Clyde Tombaugh, who discovered the planet Pluto, and years later I met Neil deGrasse Tyson (see above), who disproved that Pluto is a planet.  Whoa!

Anyway, a million thanks again to these forces to be reckoned with, whose accomplishments are so massive, I am literally in awe and speechless (mark this down in the books)!  If you are unfamiliar with these people, do your homework!!!

I was already in heaven going to another Scissor Sisters show, but it was a completely unexpected surprise to run into the fabulous Academy Award winning actress and activist Susan Sarandon at the show!  Like the entire audience, she had a great time and she was super cool when she posed for this photo with me!  Thanks Susan!  Love you!

Mandela Day Photos – The All Star Jam

Posted by The G on August 1, 2009 under G Reviews | Be the First to Comment

Once and for all, please honor the purpose of Mandela Day by doing random acts of kindness, no matter how small, as often as you can.  Together, we can make the world a better place.

My series of photos from Mandela Day, a 46664 Celebration, that took place at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on July 18, 2009 has been almost as popular as the event itself.  I am pleased to show you all some worldwide exclusive photos from the grand finale all star jam.

Mandela Day Concert

Posted by The G on July 19, 2009 under G Reviews | Be the First to Comment

I just witnessed history for the second time in 2 days!  Last night, I saw Sir Paul McCartney perform the first ever concert at Citi Field (the new Shea Stadium) and tonight, I saw the Mandela Day 46664 show at Radio City Music Hall.  Because there were so many great artists performing tonight, I’ll be dedicating a new post to each one, but in the meanwhile, enjoy this picture from the All-Star Jam at the end of the show.  Who were the performers you ask?  Gloria Gaynor, Angelique Kidjo, Baba Maal, Alicia Keys, Jesse McCartney (no relation to Sir Paul), Wyclef Jean, Zucchero, Will i. Am, Cyndi Lauper, Lil Kim, Queen Latifah, Dave Stewart, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Josh Groban, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder!  The A-List presenters included Tim Robbins, Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Sarandon, Forrest Whitaker, Morgan Freeman and Billie Jean King.

The purpose of Mandela Day is not just to celebrate the birthday of one of the world’s greatest humanitarians, but also to encourage all of us to do random acts of kindness, no matter how small, to help make the world a better place.  Promise yourself (we’ll all look away whilst you do that), that you’ll do your part.
