With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who might be his most formidable opponent yet.

Achieving success as a musician can be measured in a variety of ways, but one thing that practically all musicians have in common is their desire for their music to be heard. While this may have been difficult in the past, the internet has certainly changed things. Many contemporary musicians we all know and love had their start on YouTube, and so can you.
Using Livestreams In Lieu Of Concerts
One of the best ways to showcase your music is to hold live concerts. With YouTube, setting up an event is easier than it has ever been – just prep yourself and start live streaming through the app. You can use YouTubeStorm to help direct more traffic towards your livestream, which will give your music more exposure. By popularizing your music, you are achieving the first step towards success. After all, artists like Justin Bieber owe their humble beginnings to YouTube – you never know who is watching.
Exclusive Content Through Subscriptions
You definitely don’t want to be a struggling musician for too long, so it’s best to find ways to earn money using your music. In addition to ad generated revenue through YouTube’s creator fund, you can prompt your fans to subscribe to premium content, where they will gain access to exclusive music that isn’t available on your main channel. Patreon is a popular choice for content creators who wish to use a subscription based offer.
Selling Merchandise For A Boost In Earning
Once you have a sufficiently large fanbase of subscribers, you may consider selling some merchandise to them. For musicians this is usually an exclusive hard or digital copy of some of their music or a recorded live stream. Keep in mind that merchandise selling isn’t meant to be your main income source but should be a booster.
Using YouTube As A Segue For Spotify
The main income of major artists nowadays is no longer from the sale of hard or digital copies of their music but through music streaming platforms like Spotify (the world leader as of 2021). Getting on Spotify is easy enough, but using YouTube as a way to promote your Spotify channel is a popular tactic that has proven to be highly effective. Simply adding a link in the description of your content on YouTube can be enough to direct listeners to your Spotify playlists, leading you towards success.
Success as a musician nowadays has changed drastically, and with the widespread use of platforms like YouTube has simplified the road to success. If your music is halfway decent, then there is bound to be people who share your taste in music and enjoy your creativity. The internet has given you the opportunity to cast a wide net in search of fans all over the world, and it can even be used as a gateway towards more traditional measures of success such as radio and other ratings. Use the internet to your favor, and make the most of social media platforms to achieve fame and popularize your music.

Media Mikes is excited to be working with Warner Bros. to give fans a chance to see the new movie “Blinded By The Light” in advance before anyone else! Click below in your city to get FREE tickets to an advance screening. Tickets are limited so act quickly and feel free to tell your friends!
From writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha (“Bend It Like Beckham”) comes the inspirational drama “Blinded by the Light,” set to the music and lyrics of Bruce Springsteen’s timeless songs.
“Blinded by the Light” is a joyful story of courage, love, hope, family and the unique ability of music to lift the human spirit. The film tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father (Kulvinder Ghir). But when a classmate (Aaron Phagura) introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice.
Inspired by a true story, based on Sarfraz Manzoor’s acclaimed memoir Greetings from Bury Park: Race, Religion and Rock N’ Roll, “Blinded by the Light” was directed by Gurinder Chadha from a screenplay written by Manzoor, Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges.
“Blinded by the Light” stars Viveik Kalra, Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Ganatra, Nell Williams, Aaron Phagura, Hayley Atwell and Dean-Charles Chapman.
The story is underscored by the music and poetic lyrics of Springsteen, who gave Chadha his blessing from the film’s inception.
This film has been rated PG-13 for thematic material and language, including some ethnic slurs.

SYNOPSIS: La Llorona. The Weeping Woman. A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand. The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations.
In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain.
Now her tears are eternal. They are lethal, and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed. La Llorona creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own. As the centuries have passed, her desire has grown more voracious…and her methods more terrifying.
In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children.
Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.
Beware of her chilling wail…she will stop at nothing to lure you into the gloom. Because there is no peace for her anguish. There is no mercy for her soul. And there is no escape from the curse of La Llorona.

To kick off the holiday season, the (sometimes) good guy in red is delivering the official trailer for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL from 20th Century Fox! Audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence. “Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…” Fred Savage will join Reynolds in new scenes for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL in an homage to Savage’s starring role in the 1987 bedtime-story classic THE PRINCESS BRIDE.
