Legendary Musician Billy Joel Joins Biggest Celebration of The Year With Special Live Performance From Brooklyn On Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2014

Billy Joel, Self Assignment, January 7, 2006

Billy Joel will appear in a special live performance from Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest,” performing one of his classic hits as the first song of the New Year.

Show host Ryan Seacrest will lead the traditional countdown at midnight, and co-host Jenny McCarthy (“The View”) will join him throughout the broadcast, live from Times Square.

Personally, I could care less about Capital Cities, Miley Cyrus, Daughtry, Jason Derulo, Fall Out Boy, Florida Georgia Line, Ariana Grande, Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Robin Thicke but I will watch the show for Billy Joel and Blondie; I guess I’m old school!

“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014,” is a bi-coastal celebration with a West Coast celebration hosted by Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas. Coverage of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014,” will feature hours of special performances and reports on New Year’s celebrations from around the globe, beginning at 8:00 PM ET/PT on ABC.

The Museum of Science Fiction To Open In Washington, DC

MSFlogo_hires

The Museum of Science Fiction in Washington, DC, will be the world’s first comprehensive science fiction museum, covering the history of the genre across the arts (movies, television, books, music, art, comics, etc.) and providing a narrative on its relationship to the real world. Our mission is to create a center of gravity where art and science are powered by imagination.


The museum is expected to open in 2017 while a 3,000-square-foot preview museum is scheduled for 2015. Museum founder Greg Viggiano and his team are raising funds for the preview museum on Indiegogo.

The board is considering nine locations in downtown Washington for the preview museum, which will cover some 3,000 square feet — the full museum will be 15 times larger — feature a life-size Tardis and a scale model of the Enterprise.

Here are some other proposed exhibits
