Country Music Festival

I'm often asked how we find the content for our music archive website, afterall our ethos is to save rock/pop music history, so how do you go about doing that? Well the first thing to say is it's not easy, but actually it's not that hard either. If you ask enough people somebodies brother will have been in a band, or managed an artist or nearly made it, however that is usually of little value, yes they may have a story to tell and we love recording them but generally those introductions don't lead very far.

Santana Returns to Australia

If you were around in the nineties, then you know that Pearl Jam were a huge thing. While Australia and the US both have their own rock and pop scenes, Pearl Jam's appeal was pretty well universal. Nirvana was all about youthful angst and apathy while Pearl Jam was a little more ambitious, setting their sights on a deeper kind of angst, an existential honesty.

Vintage Guitar Amps Versus Modern Guitar Amps

As I was sitting in my office in Miami, me and several DJs were having a very intense discussion as to what were the top 25 dirty south songs of the decade. Even though we all know that choosing your favorite rap songs is solely based on one's opinion. I decided to take a crack at it to see how my picks would line up with the rest. But the criteria that I used to make my picks were that the songs had to be club bangers. I think that you will be very surprised as to what my picks are.

Jackson Browne One Of The Most Loved Folk Singers Of All Time

Almost impossible to describe with any one adjective, rock enigma David Bowie has been a world famous singer and actor for nearly five decades. Born January 8, 1947 in London as David Robert Hayward Jones, Bowie is perhaps the most famous glam rock entertainer of all time, sharing the title with - and earning it because of - his alter ego Ziggy Stardust. David grew up in Brixton, a poor part of London, and claims to have decided on his career at a very early age.

According to the millionaire's themselves.

As the fourth season of Millionaire Matchmaker came to a close this week, former millionaires who asked Patti Stanger to find them love have come forward to criticize Patti's practices and how they were portrayed on the show.

Basically, they're all still whining they can't get dates.

Like millionaire Jason Teich, for example. He claims the show pegged him as a "tough-talking, heavy drinking guy from Brooklyn," and hasn't been able to land a date since them. Jason complained, "Producers fed me drinks and then Patti yelled at me for being an alcoholic."

For some, their "personas" on the show have not only slowed down their love life, but also their business practices. Like Long Island divorce lawyer Doug Kepanis. He says because he was described as a "divorce attorney with an ugly bod" on the show, he's been dropped as a legal expert from TruTV and a lot of his female clients have turn their back on him. Obviously, this has everything to do with his supposed "ugly bod" and not his rather sexist remarks.

But the people who really seem to be having a problem with Patti isn't the men she's tried to help, but the network who's stood behind her. Sources report the show's fifth season is about to start filming, but it may end up being the last if Patti doesn't reign in her "antics." An insider explains:

"She thinks they aren't giving her the respect she deserves and she's telling friends that she's shopping her show to other networks. But Bravo is tired of her antics, insists it owns 'Millionaire Matchmaker' and wants to continue the show with a different matchmaker."

They've done it with the Housewives, they can do it with you honey. Don't kid yourself into thinking you're irreplaceable. You must not know about B! (that stand for Bravo, get it?)

When a Bravo rep was reached for comment, they confirmed that the fifth season was underway, but confessed "it is too early to say anything about Season 6."

That's not a good sign, BB! Better clean up your act in the months to come if you wish to stay in the reality biz.

After 60 years or so of rock and roll history, there have certainly been several true sensations. The Beatles of course spring immediately to mind. The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, U2, and the list goes on. But Elvis was the original rock and roll sensation and remains the greatest of all.

Variations among Pre-Paid and Legal Plans

Are you looking to find some ideas for a new job? In reality there are a lot of various opportunities which exist and it'll all be based on your requirements. A fascinating sector that is worth taking into consideration is the area of project management. You can find lots of web-sites that offer interesting information such as Project management tips in order to help you become skillful. It might also be interesting that you simply consider the legal field as well. There's a lot of web sites on the net that will enable you to become familiar with concept like séjours linguistique. It might even be beneficial that you get familiar with a foreign language as this can improve your possibility of getting a job. You will find various ways such as prepaid legal plans in order to make you knowledgeable about this kind of language. In order to make your life easier I've attached an example of an article which you may find online.It is not uncommon to determine the terms �legal plans� and �pre-paid legal services� used interchangeably. While they share a lot of characteristics in typical, you will find numerous variations you need to be aware of.Each of these terms refer to an arrangement whereby you spend a fixed monthly or yearly fee in exchange for legal services. The idea behind them is to save consumers on higher legal costs while providing a useful service. That�s where the differences lie: what type of services is offered and what is covered. What are you entitled to in both schemes?Pre-paid solutions cover for particular legal solutions: totally free phone consultation and advice, drafting of simple wills and trusts, evaluation of sample contracts and composing of letters in your behalf. Legal solutions not supplied will get charged at regular attorney fees, but you may be qualified for discounts.
Legal insurance, by contrast, functions a lot like other insurance coverage ideas, like health or automobile insurance. Although particular legal solutions are offered at times, your insurance coverage provider will typically offer a policy that addresses for all legal solutions. The policy will pay on behalf of you, the policy holder, or reimburse all expenses, costs or costs that you purchase legal services as much as the policy restrict. For instance, your policy might reimburse any fees incurred inside your court judgments or spend your bail money � a services not provided by most pre-paid legal ideas.
Your legal insurance coverage can also be pegged to other insurance coverage policies you may already have. In the event you run into legal issues involving your other insurance, then your legal insurance policy will protect you in opposition to loss or liability. For instance, if you're involved in a car accident when your
auto-insurance has currently run out and you're subsequently sued for recovery of damages, you'll be guarded by a legal strategy insurance coverage.
Another distinction between the two schemes is related to your option of lawyer. Inside a pre-paid legal services, you get to select from a restricted quantity of the attorneys in the network. By contrast, a legal insurance coverage strategy provides legal coverage regardless of attorney. You're totally free to set up interviews with any number of attorneys and select the ones you believe will offer the best services for your personal legal needs.Lastly, pre-paid legal plans are much more available towards the general public. Legal ideas are harder to arrive by as only a restricted number of insurance coverage businesses offer this kind of arrangements.

How To Record An Acoustic Guitar for an Ensemble

These days if bands and musicians don't use multi-track recording techniques to record their music, they'd be pegged as unusual. It's completely normal for today's musicians to use 8, 16, 24, 48, and even more tracks to build layer upon layer of music that makes up their recordings. This can make the recording process quite complicated and results in a distinct type of recording feel. The early rockabilly pioneers didn't record like that.

When I first started playing the guitar I had been completely against using an acoustic guitar tuner. This was on the basis that I could use my ears to learn pitch. It could also have been because I had no money, but that is another story. However, what I discovered was that I was far more interested in playing and attempting to write songs rather than the actual mechanics of theory. Many of you will see where I am coming from with this and have either purchased or are in the process of purchasing a guitar tuner as opposed to trying to learn by ear.

The Existence Of Analog Music Solutions

By 1983, legendary rock band, The Kinks, hadn't produced a top 20 single on either side of the water in over 10 years. Despite moderate recent album success in The States, singles chart success seemed a distant memory. Suddenly, Come Dancing by The Kinks was at UK#12 and US#6. This was their joint highest charting US single ever! How on earth did that happen?

Rockabilly music should maybe have never come into existence. After all, the music is a blend of country, blues, rhythm and blues, and gospel styles all mashed together to create a unique sound. And who would have ever thought to combine these varied styles, let alone thought that the resulting music might actually become popular and eventually be responsible for millions of record sales? Well, luckily for rockabilly and rock and roll fans, there were people back in the 1950s who were willing to do just that type of experimentation and they've left us a wonderfully rich musical legacy!

I think we managed to surprise her pretty successfully … the look on her face when she walked into the room full of people was just perfection!

Not only was the company fantastic but the food was really amazing. We ate our faces off and then were treated to the most delicious desserts available. For some reason, David and I couldn’t get enough of our friend Genevieve’s beautiful baby girl Audrey. The precious little girl just manages to get cuter and cuter every time we see her. It was all we could do to keep from stealing her away and bringing her home with us. We’re planning a playdate with Gen and Audrey tomorrow so … expect more photos. I want to formally extend all my Birthday Lurve to Mariqueen today for her birthday yesterday. I hope she had a fantastic day … we had a blast celebrating with her :)

mcdonalds blocks gay websites

LGBT McDonald's customers in New Zealand are NOT happy.

According to GayNZ.com, gay-related sites have been blocked from McDonald's locations in Wellington, NZ.

Some sites that have been blocked include The Agender site for transgender folks, and Rainbow Youth advice site.

According to McDonald's reps, the sites have been blocked because they are a family fast food restaurant, and content of the Internet but not the food must be suitable for children.

Here's what gay Wellington resident Julz Darroch had to say about it:

"In this day and age it has shocked me. Just when we think we can get used to being treated as equals in society, and in the main centres at least, something like this comes along. Our being lesbian or gay, or wanting to be in contact with our friends and communities, should not be an issue for the likes of McDonald’s.”

Here's what McDonald's has sent in response to GayNZ.com:

"We're a family restaurant chain, and as part of offering this new Free WiFi service, our policy is that viewed content must be of a family friendly nature, i.e.- suitable for a child to view.

Because of this, access to a number of websites is blocked, including access to gaynz.com gambling, tobacco and adult mature content websites. We stress that all the content of allowable sites must meet family friendly criteria.

By this we mean a child cannot access a website where they can click on any content, link or third party advertisement and access sexually explicit content and images.

You will also appreciate that there are inevitably teething problems with the introduction of a new service and getting our filtering process right is one such issue."

McDonald's has said they'll review the sites that customers have complained about, but we have our suspicions that these sites will remain blocked.

Not Cool AT ALL, McDonalds.
