David Hasselhoff to Judge Red Bull Flugtag Festival

Red Bull Flugtag DayThe first ever National Red Bull Flugtag Day takes place in five cities simultaneously across the United States of America. Washington DC, Miami, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Long Beach all host their own Red Bull Flugtag events on the same day and fight it out for the top honours. Thirty teams will take to the ramps in each of the five cities and do battle in their self-built creations to do battle for their home town.David Hasselhoff is one of the celebrities there to judge the self-built flying contraptions in Long Beach tomorrow starting at 10am and lasting all day. The first launch will be at Noon. Other celebrities joining David are Kevin Ryder of KROQ's Kevin & Bean Morning show, world-record cycle-jumper Robbie Maddison, the guys from Comedy Central's "Workaholics", Mexican music show host Yarel Ramos and radio/TV host Carson Daly.Press Telegram News says Flugtag is a mammoth party, with 28 teams launching their homemade contraptions from a 30-foot-tall ramp at the foot of the Pine Avenue Pier in an effort to grab some serious air and some serious distance. It’s a combination of aeronautics and sheer buffoonery, with hardly any aeronautics.The combined knowledge and experience of flight, from the first attempts at paleo-gliding by cavemen jumping out of trees to NASA’s Apollo program, will all be brought to bear Saturday afternoon in Long Beach when several teams of aeronuts attempt to take to the skies with their human-powered flying machines shaped like pyramids and pizzas.They will all fail. Every one. And it’s exactly that kind of spectacular failure that will bring an expected crowd of more than 100,000 people to Long Beach on Saturday afternoon to watch the return of Red Bull’s Flugtag event at Rainbow Harbor.Date: September 21Hangars open at 10amFirst launch is at NoonEvent is free and open to the publicFor more information, check out Red Bull's official website on Flugtag Festival Long Beach.

David Eyes His Own Vegas Show

From Star Pulse | FemaleFirst | Hoff News Crew

 While at the Knight Rider Festival in Vegas last weekend, David mentioned, "I think it's going to be very soon now that I'm back here with my own show. I have a musical show. We just performed it and it went great. We're getting offers. I'm talking with hotels here (Las Vegas). Maybe I'll start downtown. I like it here. It has the old Vegas vibe and then I'll move it to the strip later."The singer/actor is planning to follow in the footsteps of the Rat Pack and Elvis Presley by garnering his own longtime residency in the gambling Mecca.He said, "It will be the 'Rat Pack' meets 'The Hoff' meets 'Knight Rider'."He also added to the Las Vegas Sun newspaper: "I'm the busiest I've been in a long time. I'm going over to Germany, where my music business is still extraordinarily big. I'm recording a new romantic songs CD and for US television network PBS, we will shoot a special in the castles of Ireland, with the Celtic women dancing in unison with me."

Knight Rider Festival

Just got back into town from the Knight Rider Festival, which was awesome. I've never seen David in person before, so that was really exciting. Photos and videos to come tomorrow. Some highlights included actually driving a KITT replica (thanks Alex) and David looking at me and saying "Hi."

Here's the rundown from articles on the Festival:

Check out the videos below. More to come soon!

Knight Rider Festival Recap

What can I say? Easily the best weekend of my life.. met tons of celebrities and friends from online communities. I can't really put it into words how amazing the Festival was, I was on excitement overload until the drive home from Vegas.We arrived in Vegas on Friday evening, and I got dressed for the VIP party.  Was planning on just walking around and seeing where things were for a little bit beforehand, but I got a call from Scott saying there was going to be a press conference in 20 minutes. So I walked outside the Golden Nugget to the first street stage for the ceremony.  Ever carry a heavy news camera and tripod in heels all the way from the 19th floor of the hotel to Fremont stage? Not fun! But I did it, and got lots of great footage and even interviewed Justin Bruening and Rebecca Holden! It was so amazing. I ended up editing a whole 2 minute story for the news on Monday with all the footage I got, and it's up on the website at KCSG.com if you want to see it.Catherine Hickland and II was so star struck after those interviews! If that wasn't enough, I met Justin again at the VIP party later that night. He is the nicest guy, very personable and approachable. Catherine Hickland was also there, and I got to chat with her. It's weird, because you meet these people that you watch on TV all the time, and you just don't know what to say to them. If you could just chat with them, what would you say? My mind came up with a blank.. and all I could mutter out with Catherine was "OMG I'm talking to Stevie right now." She just laughed and was very nice.I asked her what it was like working with David Hasselhoff on Knight Rider, and she told me, "Well he was my husband at the time, so it was weird." She even stood there to let me take a few pictures with her.Justin Bruening and IThen I saw Justin Bruening and he was standing in the corner on the balcony, and it took me about an hour to just get to him. When I did get there, he took a swig of beer and shook my hand. It was kind of amusing. He was really chill and just talked about funny things that have happened on Knight Rider. He was telling me and others that were standing around this silly story about KITT's voice globe. He said, if you step on the gas quickly, or jerk forward fast in the car, KITT's voice globe will fall out of the dash."I've actually caught it a few times," he said. He went on to talk about how in attack KITT, the voice globe blocks the air conditioning vents so he likes to take it out.He signed my DVD copy of the tribute video I did for Knight Rider Online, and said he's visited that site a few times and liked it. He then told me he'd check out dhasselhoff.net because he thinks the Hoff is a cool guy.I got some video of the VIP party, with Glen Larson and Justin Bruening. I wasn't able to meet Glen Larson, which makes me sad, but I'm glad I was able to get some video of him at least from afar.

David Hasselhoff on Viva VisionThe Fremont Street Experience put on a "Knight Rider Tribute" video on Viva Vision, which was really awesome. It was cool to see images of Knight Rider past and present on such a big screen. There was even a KITT scanner 5 blocks long!After the VIP Party, Neil, Scott, Sue (from KRO) and I went downstairs and walked to the garage to see all the KITT replicas. Neil and Sue rode in a replica and then Scott and I were able to ride in another. That was amazing - I couldn't believe I was actually riding down the Vegas strip in KITT.The replica I rode in was unbelievable. It actually had functional buttons! Ignition, windows, doors, headlights, dash lights.. all controllable from the ceiling buttons. He even had a functional "Oil slick" and "smoke screen." He said he wanted to get a nitrous kit, so his "Turbo Boost" would actually work.Lots of people were looking at us, since we were in a line of KITTs. Some people on the street were screaming about how they love KITT and the show, and some people in their cars next to us were doing the same.We all drove to the Vegas sign and took pictures, checked out other replicas and chatted with Michael Scheffe. He was so humble, such a nice guy he was.Saturday was the main event! I met Justin again a few more times, but the end of the day, when he walked by he would nod to me!Hung out with more friends that I've known online for 10+ years, and some people I've only known for a few months.Original K.I.T.T.The original K.I.T.T. was on display and I was able to talk to the owner and get pictures of the dash. It's one thing to see a replica, quite another to see the original. It was in prestine condition, but you could see the wear and tear on the seats and some parts of the dash, which was the more fascinating thing, if that makes sense.So many things happened on Saturday, and trying to recount it now is harder then it was to recount Friday. Saturday night there was lots of entertainment. Paul Casey sang and played guitar with Don Peake and they were really good. One of the songs he sang was "Johnny Be Good." Rebecca Holden also graced the stage and sang a few songs. I didn't know she could even sing until that day, and was impressed.Despite the amazing replicas and all the celebrities, it wouldn't have been as fun if I didn't get to meet all my friends from online. Everyone was so nice and approachable. My_friend_KITT, jup, neps, mike pajaro, scott, vegasmike, victor kros, MR2NR, vampire knight, tigersharka, season2fan, Sandra and anyone else that I met were all great nice people. I really enjoyed hanging out with them all.To see more photos and videos, check out the gallery.
