Earth Hour: It’s a Choice To Turn OFF Non-Essential Electrical Devices
Last year I watched the Twitter feed about Earth Hour and was so amazed at the number of people who tweeted they did not care, they turned all their lights on, they did not believe in global warming, etc… You get my drift.
However, this act, of turning your lights and non-essential electronics off for one hour is more about being a symbolic gesture of honoring the Earth and sending a message to those around you from neighbors to politicians to the power companies that we do care.
When did we stop caring about causes? When did we stop wanting to be heard? Why do we not care about the planet we live on? For me, I’ve seen one too many SciFi movies about aliens coming to planet earth because they could no longer live on their planet as they used up all their resources.
If you don’t believe in global warming, nothing will change your mind. But if you do believe we should take care of the place we live then why not start tonight?
With over 125 countries and regions around the world participating in this small act of awareness, we join the world in showing we do care enough to stop and think about our planet.
That’s all we can ask today and maybe all you are willing to do. We don’t have to ignore the gesture and tweet out we have all our lights on, it only proves one thing and I think you know what that is.
Tonight join all of us at Mingle Media TV and our friends around the world for Earth Hour > one hour > 8:30 PM YOUR LOCAL Time Zone.
Please flip it off. Don’t flip us off. #EarthHour2010

Mingle Media TV was invited to see the big reveal of the Disney Pixar Toy Story LEGO mural put together by 6 groups of Boy and Girls Club kids from across the country.
We were there and captured the footage from talking to the experts to watching the kids countdown to see the completed masterpiece. Watch the video to see all the fun!
Pixar Story Supervisor Jason Katz (Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3) and LEGO Master Builder Erik Varszegi joined kids from the Hollywood Boys & Girls Club to assemble a one-of-a-kind Toy Story & Toy Story 2 mural (just in time for the release on Blu-ray™).
Kids from six different Boys & Girls Clubs across the US in regional markets each built a portion of the elaborate Toy Story mural out of LEGO® bricks, which were joined together for the first time in Los Angeles. Participating Cities included: Washington DC, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Denver and Los Angeles.
Special Thanks to Disney for their long standing relationship with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) – over 50 years. Disney has donated millions in financial and in-kind donations as well as volunteer services to support Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
Be sure to mark your calendars for June 18th 2010 as Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 3 will be in theaters around the US.
Before SXSW we had the good fortune to go to the Blue Microphone studios to check out their facilities and interview The Ruse band, interview them and check out their music. Watch the video below – they really rocked! Our correspondent, Eddie Simeon, (used to work for MTV) was on hand to talk to the guys.
Today, The Ruse, had a new album drop – check them out
You can get their album at iTunes –> go get it!
Now more about Blue Microphone! Our tech guys got to check out some of the different equipment from Blue Microphone – from awesome mics to their EYEBALL 2.0 webcam. Being Mac geeks, we really loved the ease of use and quality of their products.
They have an amazing line of mics from in home quality to studio quality… yup, these people really take the sound quality seriously – and how amazing that they do it from their studios with musicians who try it out – live and in recording… like our time at their Westlake Studios a few weeks ago.
If you are looking for a great productline that is trusted by musicians all around the world, then check out our friends at Blue Microphone online.
