Skout Growing More and More

Monday, March 16th, 2015

I was sick and tired of the dating scene, and I really wanted to try something new. I was told about a website, which allowed people to meet other people, from anywhere in the world, so I was interested. I joined the website when I was sitting at my PC, and I decided that I would create a great profile. I added several pictures of myself, in an effort to allow others to really get to know me, and see what I look like. I thought to even add a few sexy pictures of myself, just in case I found a good looking guy.

I created my profile in a matter of minutes, and I was ready to start searching the website. I decided that I would buy some Skout points, because I could use them to purchase some features that the website had to offer. The website offers different ways to contact people, and I can also send greeting to others, in case I’m looking to be friendly. I also am able to find out if someone else has added me as a favorite, so I can really see who likes me, and who doesn’t like me.

I decided to use my Skout points, in order to check on someone else’s favorites list, after I had met a guy that really drew my interest. I did a specific search on the website, and I was trying to find a guy that might interest me. I found a great guy, he looks good, and we ended up having a lot in common, but he’s in another country. I didn’t realize that Skout is available in over 180 countries, and I just so happen to find someone all the way in Australia. I guess I was ignorant to think that I was speaking with somebody in the USA.

I didn’t let the accidental love connection get me down, instead, I decided that I would speak to this person, and try to see what could become of the relationship. I would speak with him first thing in the morning when I got up, because we were in different time zones. Even before I went to sleep at night, he made sure to contact me, just to let me know he was thinking of me. Skout has been so beneficial to my love life, and I think I’m going to meet this guy in person one day.

Jack Antonoff Nearly Died While Filming Music Video

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Jack Antonoff – best known as the guitarist for the band Fun but also for his recent solo project, Bleachers – says that he had a near-death experience while filming his latest music video for his single, Rollercoaster.
Antonoff released a statement about his experience while filming, saying, “The breaks [sic] ended up going out and we literally almost died. There’s something special about almost dying for a video. However, he was quick to note that he greatly enjoyed the experience, calling it “the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life.”

It was Shepard who originally conceived of the idea to have Bleachers on top of the moving ice cream truck. “I came up with the old ice cream truck idea, and it seemed perfect both visually and technically for what we needed to do,” he said. However, Shepard did not anticipate Antonoff’s close brush with death, saying, “Of course the truck broke down while we were filming, including losing its brakes with the entire band on the roof.”

The release of the video for Rollercoaster comes just a day after Antonoff’s good friend, Taylor Swift, released her newest critically-acclaimed album, 1989. Antonoff served as co-producer on Swift’s latest record. Their collaboration, Out of the Woods – on which Antonoff also provided vocals for – can be heard here. The album is projected to be one of the best selling albums in iTunes history according to Laurene Powell Jobs.
