COME ON BLACKPOOL LET’S GET SICKENING!!…..(& life update!!)

Hello everyone…welcome back to MikeyMix!! Hope you’re all well and haven’t missed me too much (I know I said I’d be blogging a lot more now that I’m off university for summer and I apologise for not keeping up with my end of the promise)!

For today’s post I will be catching up with you all and then announcing an event I have very kindly been granted access to attend!

So, as you all know I’ve been doing a lot on my YouTube channel (MikeyMixTV linked here) and recently I achieved my first subscriber milestone: although hitting 50 subscribers seem’s like nothing to most people to me I’m really proud because it is hard trying to get noticed on YouTube when you live so far away from London and have other commitments in life (university, general life and of course part time work).

I’ve also started live streaming on YouNow (follow me @MikeyMixTV!) and I honestly love it! I don’t know why people would enjoy just watching me chat to my phone whilst sitting on the couch but weirdly people really seem to like it, me and my personality!

Now on to the announcement: if you don’t recognise the quote briefly referenced within the title of the post it’s from a little show entitled: RuPaul’s Drag Race. For those unaware the show is reality television competition in which female impersonators compete against each other in order to win a cash prize of $100,000 and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar” (honestly I think the easiest way to describe the show would be to say: “It’s like America’s Next Top Model meets Project Runway meets Lip Sync Battle but with drag queens”).

The show has recently completed its 9th season and since it’s launch in 2009 the show has went on to become quite a hit and has developed a devote cult following because of this a number of contestants have reached great levels of fame and acclaim.

Two fan favourites from this season (whom unfortunately didn’t win), Farrah Moan (left) and Aja (right) will be visiting ‘KLUBLAND’ (a bar in Blackpool, Lancashire, UK) on July 9. Fans of the show will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to either see the girls perform, those wanting to meet the girls and have a professional photograph taken to commemorate the occasion are also welcome to purchase a “Meet & Greet” ticket.

The event will be hosted by two UK based entertainers, both of whom have quite stellar careers!: Silver Summers (best known for her appearances in television series ‘Drag Queens of London’) and The Vivienne (RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Ambassador).

Thanks to the kind people over at “Connor Matthew Productions” (organisers of the event) I’ll be attending the event along with 3 of my friends. I’m hoping to make a vlog of the event (which will be uploaded directly to my YouTube channel shortly after the event) and will be conducting several live streams throughout the night.

Tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased here

Ticket Prices:

Standard Entry [show only]: £20 (and a £1.83 booking fee)

Meet and Greet [includes show, meeting with the girls and professional photo]: £30 (and a £2.45 booking fee)

(PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are subject to availability)

I’M BACK!!!!!

Hello everyone and welcome back to a new and improved MikeyMix!!!

After (what seems like) a long absence I am happy to announce that I am returning from retirement and bringing you all lots more blog posts!!

Although music will forever remain my passion I am pleased to announce that we are undergoing a “revamp”, the revamp is inspired by my recent love for making YouTube videos and thus I will still be reviewing music but I’ll also be dabbling in many other genres of blog post!!

For those who aren’t aware: I currently make YouTube videos (its an attempt to expand the MikeyMix “brand”) and my channel can be found by simply searching “MikeyMixTV”.

In other (more cheesier, some would argue cringier) news: I recently joined Musical.ly! Feel free to follow me my username is @MikeyMixTV!!

Sometime today I will be writing up my review of ‘Swish Swish’ by Katy Perry & Nicki Minaj so look forward to that!

So until next time guys: stay safe, be happy and keep on jammin’!!!

ANNOUNCEMENT: YouTube Channel!!!

Good morning everyone…welcome to MikeyMix! This blog post is going to be very short but I’m just making it to let you all know I’ve recently started a YouTube channel!

The channel itself doesn’t have a specific genre so there’s something for everyone. 

The reason I made a channel is to attract a new form of audience and get the MikeyMix brand on another distribution channel.

I’ll link my first three videos below, any and all feedback is welcome and it would be highly appreciated if you could like and comment on the video and maybe even subscribe to the channel?

Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!

Once the Vlogging Stops: Insomnia60 MY EXPERIENCE

Good morning again readers, welcome to today’s second blog post: as promised in my review of ‘The Cure’ by Lady Gaga (which can be found here) I am going to be discussing my experience at yesterday’s Insomnia60 Gaming Festival.

As I believe in fairness I am going to be discussing all the positives and the negatives of the event, I’m expecting this post to be quite a long one so I’ll include a read more link below, however I do recommend reading because it’s going to be good and will definitely be quite eye-opening to some readers.
