Week 04.15.12 – The stories that make the weekly headlines list usually come from sites that I frequent, sites I luck up on and social media posts that I get from others. One of the things that got my attention this week was past speech that award-winning director Steven Spielberg gave about what inspired him to become a director. Watch the link to the video in the “Creativity” section to see what he has to say about “whispers.”  Would you pay to see a hologram of your favorite deceased artist perform in concert? Thanks to the show that Tupac (shown above) did last week at Coachella that idea may soon become a reality. Sorry, but the video seems to have recently been removed from You Tube by the promoters. Take my word for it though, the performance was pretty amazing. But hey, you can still read about the show in the “Entertainment” section. Check out the other headlines that caught my eye this past week.
