 Cassandra Kubinski is a rarity…very similar to the legendary solo artists of the early to mid 1970’s…she proves that the genre [singer/songwriter] is not only alive and well, but that it is still capable of being transcendent. – Billy Joel

Cassandra Kubinski began her career doing musical theatre at the age of 12.  Since then, she’s released 4 albums, toured from NYC to LA to Germany to Jamaica, and opened for folks like Anna Nalick, Dickie Betts, and Ingram Hill.

Her latest album, “Just Being Myself”, features adult contemporary hit trumpeter Chris Botti, as well as 15 originals in her theatrical pop style.  

Her music has been heard on NBC, ABC, Bravo, MTV, VH1, and more, including 7 song placements on Lifetime’s “Dance Moms.” As a vocalist, she’s done jingles and commercials for the USPS, Barnes and Noble, Homegoods, Kohls, Capitol One, Dunkin Donuts, MTV, Tampax and more.  

She also works to raise awareness and acceptance for Autism through her song “Not So Different”, which has raised thousands of dollars for autism causes and been featured on ABC, NY1, and many Autism websites.  Let’s not forget, she is also a baseball fan and references a certain team in some of her songs.

Alex Rodriguez is an admitted PED user - and claims only to have done this while playing for the Texas Rangers.  With the new Biogenesis scandal surrounding him - how much more would his legacy be tarnished if he was found to have cheated in New York City?

Alex Rodriguez is an admitted PED user – and claims to only have done this while playing for the Texas Rangers. With the new Biogenesis scandal surrounding him – how much more would his legacy be tarnished if he was found to have cheated in New York City? It is clear that the penalties enforced by MLB for such violations are not enough of a factor – to prevent their players from trying to gain an advantage. While MLB has adopted increasingly higher suspensions for positive tests than prior to 2005, they are still not high enough to prevent kids from trying out these enhancers, because the rewards still outweigh the risk.

By Lori Martini (Senior Reporter and Baseball Writer):

As an actor, especially being female it is very tough competition. There are fewer roles for women and more female actors than men. To make matters worse, nobody wants you when you get older, which makes our time frame as a working actor very slim if one is even lucky enough to be a successful working actor.  

Some women turn to plastic surgery to try to obtain roles for parts that really should be played by 30 or 40 somethings, yet the casting notices dictate that you must look 20’s.  

Not only are there these unrealistic roles, but lately I’ve been seeing more and more degrading roles out there for women such as being topless, OK with performing simulated sex acts – even as far to be OK with being peed or defecated on.  

Seriously, how much more are they going to push the envelope, yet not expect men to do the same?

Lyrics to Lori Martini's Anti-Bullying Video "I am Not Perfect"

Lyrics to Lori Martini’s Anti-Bullying Video “I am Not Perfect.”

Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Writer/Website Owner): & Lori Martini (Senior Reporter and Baseball Writer):

Earlier this year, I had the great honor of meeting Lori Martini.  She was instrumental in helping me set the ‘World Record for Fastest To See All 30 MLB Parks’ in April, by attending 10 Games with me.  We had a nice little media blitz around the whole trip.  I even interviewed  Lori as our Citi Field Expert.  The next week, she wrote a great review about the New Marlins Ball Park, that is one of the highest viewed on the internet and has also written a few other articles. Later on in the summer, Lori interviewed Yankees Prospect Tyler Austin for the MLB Reports.  Before any of this all happened, I was already a fan of Lori’s music prior to meeting her in person. Her songwriting is incredible and she is finally receiving some recognition for it.  Lori has now used that recognition for a greater cause….

In April of this year, Lori Martini’s song “I’m Not Perfect” was placed on Dance Moms Miami and subsequently Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition on Lifetime.  Since then, the song has exploded and has inspired many young girls and boys.  It has become their anthem as it deals with accepting yourself for who you are and champions anti-bullying.  There are hundreds of fan made videos that combined have over 1 Million hits and counting.  These kids are doing covers of the song; they use it for their dance recitals; for their school projects; for anti-bullying videos; they score it to their favorite shows, dancers, singers and artists etc. Read the rest of this entry
