Share Article

Stress relief? A college student's new blog explores some of the curiosities of daily life, from weird instruments to Michael Jackson, technology news to travel suggestions. The blog is a virtual modern living space; with each post comes an element of surprise.

Need an escape from life's stresses and annoyances? An 18 year-old Stanford University sophomore, James "Ming" Johnson and his father Blue Johnson have launched a unique new blog experience, Rising Stardom. Rising Stardom is inspired by the authors' personal interests, and collectively these interests offer an objective opinion on contemporary society.

Concerned with music, travel, and photography, Blue Johnson draws from his 40 year career in the music industry managing bands like Seawind to write on the various tours he has embarked on, memories of traveling on the road, and the real stories behind many of his noted concert photographs - from Michael Jackson to Rod Stewart and Jimi Hendrix. He also draws on his extensive travel experience and years spent living in Thailand to write on curious and unique places that are deserving of a visit or a vacation, all this interlaced with various samples of his own photography, another passion of his.

Ming has a devotion to fast automobiles, art history, and bizarre news. Needless to say, the content he writes has a twist of the unusual and often unobserved. His posts act as a teleporter, taking readers from one curiosity to the next, from one locale to another, presenting one interesting article with a topic completely detached from the next, yet cohesive in the end.

The end result is unique, as Rising Stardom's content presents many of the world's curiosities and interests. It is a potential wealth of random knowledge on topics inspired by its authors. Rising Stardom's creative content is poised to entertain far into the future. As a blog, Rising Stardom offers a not only a break from the mainstream commentary on celebrity gossip, politics, or gadgets, but also a relieving escape from daily trudging. Rising Stardom's diverse topics are difficult to grasp verbally; you will need to experience it for yourself!
