PRESS: Calliste Jr Producing New Music Will Release “Hashim Music presents…” Series Early 2012 | Hashim Music

justfeelit1b#musicbiz #bassmintmusic #hashimmusic #hashim #official_hashim Hi everyone. It’s true. I will, God willing, continue recording unfinished productions and release new music in early 2012. The last time I recorded was 2004. I did not finish those recordings but will this time around. I also plan to shoot a short film (HD video) feature. We will be very creative when shooting the shorts.

What side tracked me? I started studying dual majors in information technology and management information sciences, organized the independent team at Callistecomm http://www.callistecomm.com formerly Calliste.us) and entered into a cloud computing start up joint venture Simplestream.us Media Made Easy! http://www.simplestream.us that officially launched January 2011.

With Callistecomm.com and Simplestream.us two organizations underway I can focus on reinventing Bassmint Music Inc. and creating new various artists series productions through music publishing company Hashim Music http://www.hashimmusic.com (web site under redesign). Hashim Music is a music publishing member of ASCAP since 1985. The MP3 and ring tone, customized ecommerce shopping cart, we developed back in 2004 at Bassmintmusic.com will be redesigned and offered as a mobile app.

I’ll share additional information with all of you as it becomes available.

He sold the “gold pants” trinket!

(Since I originally drafted this blog post back on 12/25/2010 the players have apologized and will sit out a number of games this 2011 season). Here’s what I had to say back when it first happened…

The @ESPN.com headline reads “@OhioState football players sanctioned” http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5950873 Now fellas come on. Mr. Terrelle Pryor I understand you’re young and will make mistakes but to sell the “gold pants” trinket? My goodness. You beat “that team up North” which is every @OhioState football players dream and goal to do. Some guys never win the gold pants trinket for such an accomplishment. By winning you are in a special elite group of accomplished players. Yes it’s a trinket but it means so much to the players, the university, #Buckeye nation and fans. To sell tradition so wantonly really brings into question your loyalty and your leadership to your team, your players, your family. Now your name will be mentioned for as long as there is an Ohio State football team as the guy who sold the “gold pants”.

Trivia questions far and near will relentlessly post the question, “What Ohio State QB who beat “that team up North” went on to sell the traditional “gold pants trinket”? I know I shouldn’t be so hard on you. I made mistakes too. I sold some of the rights (only parts I had 100% and sold 50%) of certain copyrights to a small portion of my catalog (songs). Regrettably. Since then I have gained an understanding that “once in a lifetime achievements” should not be sold and memorabilia is not to be placed for sale. No monetary value can replace all the hard work and dedication, sweat, pain and agony it took to achieve those pants. It’s just not worth it.

“@Facebook is worth $52billion, and that’s not a good thing” | @Reuters #socialmedia

According to #KevinKelleher 2010, “Another week, another surge in @Facebook’s putative valuation.

What About Scholarships?

Ok I’ve been very busy of late researching, preparing applications, and requesting references from friends and associates to gain academic scholarships.

I’m a dual major  IT and MIS student. I have a lot of scholarship deadlines coming up on Monday June 1st and so far, in my opinion my persistence and hard work is looking good.

FastWeb.com provided me with an abundance of scholarship opportunities. Any tips from any of you that have gained scholarships in the past?
