Why Rock Stars Love Gardening

Uncategorized 29 July 2014 | Comments Off on Why Rock Stars Love Gardening

Why Rock Stars Love GardeningBeing a rockstar may mean that you are at home in every club and arena in the world, while maintaining relationships with the rich and beautiful of even the most remote countries; however, it certainly doesn’t mean that you’ve got to choose your hobbies based on a coolness- or the excitement-factor any longer.

Quite the contrary, being an internationally well known superstar of the rock scene allows you to take up whichever hobby you please, without having to resort to the common and boring ones that every other rock star goes for; like collecting expensive sports cars and designer watches that cost even more than said sports cars.

You can choose to be a superb hobby gardener, because, let’s face it, there are plenty of reasons why that would be the best choice for every rock star in the world. Just in case for you these great reasons aren’t as clear as they should be, here are two of the premier reasons why any rock star of your caliber needs to start gardening.

Too many vacant rooms in your mansion

There are only so many purposes that you can assign to all of the rooms in your mansion. After you are done designing the second home theater, that is equipped with more seats than people whose last names you know, maybe it is time that you resort to something a little more fulfilling.

Adding an in indoor garden for some of the prettiest flowers in your basement, on the first, second or third floor will allow you to never have to leave your house again when you want to breathe in some freshly produced oxygen, in between band practices. With the help of the latest grow lights, you won’t even have to pay any more attention to whether the room you would like to dedicate to your new hobby has windows.

Simply use the most expensive grow lights and within weeks you’ll have your own personal jungle somewhere in the midst of your mansion.

A lazy chef and too much space in the backyard

It sounds like a nightmare, not only is the combined space that you have available in your back-, side- and front yard so large that you don’t have the first idea of what to do with, but also is your chef and the leader of your Olympic pool sized kitchen as lazy as can be and simply refuses to drive to the nearby grocery store (even though he’d be allowed to take any one of the Ferraris in the eighteen-car garage of yours).

Luckily, there is a solution for all rockstars like you who are currently through these two problems. Build a (or two or three…) green house in your backyard! It will provide your lazy chef with as more garlic, thyme and basil than he can handle; at least when not using cheap grow lights.

But let’s face it with as much money as you have as one of the premier stars in the rock (and now gardening) scene, there shouldn’t be a problem for you to get the cutting edge technology that you, your lazy chef and your herbs deserve.

How Music Affects Your Brain

Science behind Music 13 July 2014 | Comments Off on How Music Affects Your Brain

How Music Affects Your BrainMusic has been known to bind people across borders, race, nationality, culture or color. A tool for expressing and communicating emotions and feelings, or a message, music is not bound by the technicalities like language. For most people music is a way of relaxing, just being, be it listening to your favorite tracks, or composing and making music. A lot many times, music, irrespective of the unit it is being played on, tends to overwhelm. But why does no other sense make us feel the way music does? Music in films, or concerts, or sometimes even at the restaurant you’re dining at can make you feel like you’re in a different world.

Music is different for everyone. The understanding of music is different from person to person. Something that may be noise for some may be music for others, while some may find opera boring. Music is a perceptual illusion, the understanding and comprehension of which is based on the individual ability of each person to process the structure of the musical piece. A piece of music is a complex blend of different sounds and sequences, and each person’s brain comprehends it differently.

Besides, there are specific benefits of listening to music:

  1. Improves creativity: listening to music when working or trying to finish trying tasks can help in finishing it faster. Moderately loud music, not too loud, can actually help in boosting creativity and thinking of smarter solutions. Music that plays as a part of the ambience brings out the most creativity.
  1. Predicting personality with music:A study conducted by the Heriot Watt University actually broke down specific character traits of people listening to different genres of music. For instance:
  • Jazz fans are creative, easy going, outgoing and have a high self-esteem.
  • Blues fans are outgaining, easy going, creative, and gentle besides having high self-esteem
  • Opera lovers are gentle, creative, and have high self-esteem
  • Classical music fans are introverts, at ease, creative, and hold high self-esteem
  • Rappers and rap lovers are outgoing and hold high self- esteem

Never-ending story of Rock & Roll

History 29 June 2014 | Comments Off on Never-ending story of Rock & Roll

Never-ending story of Rock & RollHowever hard it may be to believe, but the fact remains that Rock and Roll was not always a genre of music. Most historians, musicians and music lovers, trace the origins of the genre to a time period between the late 1940s and early 1950. Originating in the USA, Rock and Roll combines elements of the African and American genres of music, mashing blues, jazz, gospel music and jump blues with country music and the western swing.

1954 is believed to be the year when music revolutionized and people’s tastes changed. Rock and Roll took base from R&B, with an honorary mention to the legendary innovator Little Richard, who, in the 1950s completely changed the music scene. With numerous R&B artists considered pioneers in the Rock and Roll genre, indluing Joe Turner, Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, and Willie Mae Thornton, Richard’s words rang true. He has said that” R&B had a baby, and someone named it Rock and Roll”.

Rock and Roll started out with attracting the youth, specifically teens who did not want to listen to the music their parent’s preferred to listen to. Rock and Roll music was being aired to the radio, and the teens from Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit and New York started tuning in, getting hooked to this new kind of music. While a lot of “black” audiences were familiar with this type of music, for the “whites” it was something absolutely fresh and new. Continue reading “Never-ending story of Rock & Roll” »

The Clash – Idealistic Rebellious Rockers

History,Reviews 13 June 2014 | Comments Off on The Clash – Idealistic Rebellious Rockers

The Clash - Idealistic Rebellious RockersRock and roll history is incomplete with the mention of one of the greatest punk rock bands of all times, The Clash.

A punk rock band, put together by Joe Strummer (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Paul Simonon (vocals and bass guitar), Mick Jones (vocals and lead guitar) and Nicky ‘Topper’ Headon (percussion and drums) in 1976 during British punk’s original wave. Most often considered an idealistic and fiery band, they blended reggae, funk, dub, and rockabilly elements in with the punk.

Both Mick Jones and Joe Strummer were exceptionally talented songwriters, both singers with their own style and distinct voice. Not far behind The Jam, The Clash portrayed the image of being rebels with a cause: ‘restoring the protest and passion of rock and roll’.

The band members:

The lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Joe Strummer (John Graham Mellow), was born on Aug. 21, 1952. Spending most of this childhood and formative years at a boarding school, he was already into performing on London streets. In his early 20s, he founded the 101’ers, a pub rock band. At the same time, Mick Jones, born on June 26, 1955, was part of a hard rock band called the London SS. Hailing from a working class family from Brixton, Jones has been fascinated with rock and roll since early childhood.

The London SS was formed in an attempt to replicate the wondrous sound of the Mott the Hoople and Faces. Paul Simonon was Jones’s childhood friend, born on 15 Dec. 1956, joined the London SS in 1976 after being inspired by The Sex Pistols. Topper Headon (Nicky Headon) was born on 30th May 1955, and joined the band later.

The band 101’ers disbanded in 1976 after a Sex Pistols concert, and soon before their song “Keys to your Heart” came out. Joe Strummer, and the 101’ers’ guitarist, Keith Levene, joined the London SS, post which the band was revamped and renamed The Clash. Continue reading “The Clash – Idealistic Rebellious Rockers” »

Music and Motivation

Music and Motivation

Do you have a favorite song to listen to when you’re trying to accomplish something, or get some work done by a tough deadline? If you do, you should know that a lot of people share that same quality with you. While different people no doubt prefer different songs, there’s an underlying sentiment here that music can alter people’s mindsets and make them more motivated under the right circumstances. Actually, music has been proven to have all kinds of effects on the way a person perceives the world around himself, or herself. It can improve or worsen a person’s outlook.

The effects of music on the mind are not just limited to the realm of work, either. Many students study better and take in more information when they do it while listening to favorite songs in the background. People fighting for their lives in a battle have been proven again and again to fight just a little bit harder when there’s music supporting them in that fight. Now, we don’t really have bands accompanying marching armies these days, but we don’t really have marching armies anymore either, what with the way war has evolved. That makes this example kind of archaic, but no less poignant.

Music has been proven to push athletes to fight harder, run faster, hold onto a game ball tighter and just give that extra 10% that can make a game go well instead of badly. Just think about it. If, while riding your sturdy longboard you happened to hear a song about racing, or rushing from one place to another, would that not make you pedal a bit faster, trying to get to your destination sooner? Some of these changes in attitude happen on a kind of subconscious level, where the listener isn’t even aware they are happening. So, even if you don’t realize it, a song might alter the way you take to a given task.

There are so many studies proving that music has the ability to affect the motivation of a person, there is so much proof gathered already establishing this as a fact, that it would be silly to argue otherwise. Granted, the same songs won’t affect different people in the same way, and there are some people who won’t be affected much at all by any song, but as a general rule, music can indeed improve the listener’s level of motivation and get them working harder, pedaling faster, speaking louder or writing in a more articulate and rhythmic way.

If you need proof you can actually see and feel, then just try listening to something you love when taking on your next big task. You may do this already without any outside encouragement; if you do, then just pay more attention the next time you do. Gauge yourself to see how fast you move without music, then compare it to how fast you move while listening to a favorite song that makes you want to move. It’s just that easy to verify what’s being said here – that music can motivate its listener.

Packing Food for Concerts

Health,Hobbies 5 February 2016 | Comments Off on Packing Food for Concerts

Packing Food for Concerts

Have you ever tried to take food or refreshments with you to a concert, show or performance? If you have, the odds are good that you were turned away and told to return empty handed, or the food was just confiscated at the door before you were granted entry. Sure, sure, they say this is to promote a safe environment, to stop people from sneaking in weapons or drugs or other paraphernalia that might lead to other concert goers having a bad time. But this is also a convenient way to force people into buying on-site food and snacks, which are often ridiculously overpriced at such venues.

Packing food for concerts doesn’t need to be a gambling game where you just hope you don’t get caught at the door with your container full of food. There are some things you can do to increase the odds of sneaking in with your snacks intact, not just at concerts, but movie theaters, plays and musicals. First, you have to lose those big, bulky containers. People can tell when you’ve got a box tucked into a purse or under a coat, especially when they’re trained specifically to look for and find that sort of stuff.

If you don’t use any large containers, then great, your odds are already improving. But unless you’re content with bringing a bag of chips or some other small item, you’ll need to take things a step further. By sealing your food yourself, you can keep it fresh and ready to eat whenever you want, like in the middle of a concert when some so-so song is blaring and there’s a lull in the crowd while everyone waits for another hit to start blaring through the speakers. Just look at http://vacuumsealerhub.com/ to get a better idea of what’s being described here.

With a machine like that, you can securely wrap real food and make it easier to sneak into a concert or show. Burgers, dogs, ribs, fresh fruit and vegetables, literally anything can be put into an airtight space by using a vacuum sealer. This makes the food take up less space while doing away with the need for large, bulky containers which are easy for people to spot. These “vacuum bags” are portable, easy to carry, airtight and best of all, they trap in all the flavor and freshness of whatever food ends up getting sealed inside of them.

Of course, you could avoid all of this hassle and inconvenience by just taking a meal before the concert, show or event you plan to attend. This is probably a more practical solution, since it cuts out a bit of extra work and worry and saves you a few minutes, which is always nice. But if you’re going out on a budget and you still want something good to eat, taking some homemade food with you is one of the only ways to do it, and packing your homemade food as outlined above is one of the only ways to make sure you can actually keep it and get to eat it.

Building a Music Stage

DIY 21 January 2016 | Comments Off on Building a Music Stage

Building a Music StageThere’s actually a lot of work which goes into creating a music stage. That is, the stage where a band, or bands, play during a concert or other event. It’s not just building an elevated platform so everyone in the crowd can see the musicians performing; there’s also drilling of countless holes to run wires for electrical connections, worries about having an acoustically sound stage and making sure the finished stage is actually sturdy enough to support the mass of half a dozen guys, musical instruments, speakers and amps, and maybe an overeager fan or two. Building a music stage is a lot of work.

Thankfully, you can cut out a lot of the finer aspects if you don’t intend to use the stage for more than one event, or you know it will be torn down afterwards anyhow. We’re talking about things like sanding, priming and painting – that’s the kind of work you would do on wooden planks if you were looking to make a porch or a deck or something like that. Or even a music stage, if you want a high-quality stage which will manage to stand for several years. But if it’s a one-time affair, you can afford to cut back a bit, and more than just priming or painting the wood.

For starters, you don’t need very exact cuts to begin with, so you don’t need fine measuring tools. The stage should be flat of course, but many stages are uneven, and a little variance probably won’t trip up anyone walking across it. Tools like the reciprocating saw are perfect for jobs like this which usually need to be done quickly, but don’t necessarily need that fine work at the end. You can see more about these versatile tools at http://jasonsawreviews.com/best-reciprocating-saw-reviews/ any time you like.

A handy electric drill or manual augur will also be necessary to cut holes and grooves for running various electrical cords and A/V wires which all help to make a concert actually a concert. These cuts can also be rushed if you’re on a tight schedule or budget, and it won’t do a thing to affect the quality of the performance. Make sure those divots dug into the stage are well away from where anyone will be walking during the show and it will be like they aren’t even there in the first place. Some versatile reciprocating saws may be able to slice planks and cut holes in them.

There needs to be space under the stage as well for all of those wires to run their courses and any technical personnel to wiggle around out of sight, fixing connections in case anything goes wrong during the show. Any decent musical stage should also be tall enough that members of the audience can’t easily just climb up onto it with the performers. If you follow the simple guidelines listed here and use the tools recommended, you’ll be on your way to building a decent performing stage. Don’t forget about supports and making the playing surface large enough to accommodate everyone and everything.

Music over guns

Music,Science behind Music 1 December 2015 | Comments Off on Music over guns

Music over gunsThe earth is a wonderful place. It is made up of some really wonderful stuff. Some say that it is the creation of the God almighty who has blessed with the eternal joy of the very existence and the boon of life so that we can enjoy ourselves and the beauty of this world and thus be a part of the very creator, the God Almighty, through his creation. Others say that the world is made out of matter which is again made of molecules which is made of atoms and inside them lies protons, electrons, and neutron and so on. But the very fact that the world is beautiful and unique and full of surprises is something that neither of them could deny. The one thing that ensures the unique beauty of the earth is the existence of the contrast that one could find in every aspect of the nature. We call nature the mother and Mother Nature has in her laps many diverse and contrasting features that awe us all, indifferently.

Diversity is the special characteristic of nature. The existence of day and night, warmth and cool, the sun and the moon, the scorching desert and the green tropical rain forest and many more all are witness to that. The very existence of the life and death is the ultimate proof that nature dwells in contrast.

When the very nature is the dwelling dome of contrast and diversity then how could the fragment and part of the nature, man itself, can be exempted from this unique and beautiful characteristic of nature? Man is born to differ. At every point, on every issue one will always have a different opinion on the topic or a part of the topic as they could not fully agree with anything what so ever. Even man is opposed to his own self many a time, when he is in dilemma or just cannot figure out what to do. Soliloquies anyone? Shakespeare did make a living and a really good name out of those.

Music over gunsGuns and music are the two poles that are something to watch out for. They are both weapons with immense intensity and potential and must be handled with care. But the problem is you just cannot chain away music although there are options of guns safes which you could acquire from places like TopGunSafe.Com where you could safely and securely stack your guns without thinking twice. But, how can you chain music? Melodies and rhythms are made by the nature itself and thus are present in every aspect of it, in every part of it. You can sense their presence in the hills, on the corn fields, in the soothing breeze and in the chilly frost of the north winds. You can take a piece of music from even the call of the cricket. But guns they are though weapons of mass destruction yet one could find a lot of laggings in them. They may kill someone with just a pull of its trigger but there are doubts whether it will change them or make them resent. But music is magic as it heals old wounds and bridges worn out breaches.

Tips For Great Concert Photos

Photography 29 November 2015 | Comments Off on Tips For Great Concert Photos

Listening to songs of your favorite artists is a large part of being a music fan, but that’s not all there is to it! Many music enthusiasts spend hours just browsing through new albums, or choosing the next memorabilia that’s going to make their collection even better. Another thing that they do is concert photography, and this is the topic we’re going to discuss.

As you probably already know, doing photography requires a certain level of skill, since there are so many things you need to take into consideration before actually pressing the shutter release button. But many agree that concert photography is one of the most difficult things a photographer can do. The reasons behind these kinds of statements are the simple facts that concerts involve a lot of moving around, and that they’re always held at night. Taking a great concert photo, however, is not impossible, even for beginners. If you’d like to try it yourself, here are some tips that should help you get started.

Get the proper equipment

Doing photography is literally impossible without the proper equipment, so buy yourself a nice new camera if you don’t already have one. If you’re a beginner, make sure you don’t choose something that’ll be too much for your skill level. And if concert photography is what you’d like to focus on, consider buying additional photography equipment. A tripod is an essential piece, but you could also benefit from a quality quadcopter. This might sound completely unnecessary, but it’s actually important when you consider the fact that many of the best concert photos have been taken from the air.

A good tripod will get you a long way when it comes to taking pictures at night, which is crucial for concert photography. A good camera will allow you to take much sharper photos than one of those low-budget ones will. And for more benefits of having your own quadcopter, you can read the reviews on QUADCOPTERGURU.

Use AV Mode

Aperture Mode can be a great thing if you’re just getting to know your camera. But apart from being useful to beginners, it also serves its purpose in the field of professional concert photography. It’s all due to the fact that concerts involve a bunch of people who are constantly on the move, so the scene changes all the time. AV Mode rids you of the need to deal with ISO and shutter speed by calculating it from the aperture number you’ve set.

Set the camera to the lowest aperture number

Since you’ll be shooting at night, you’re going to need all the help you can get with lighting. By setting your camera to the lowest aperture number, you’ll be making sure the amount of light that goes through the sensors each time you press the shutter release is the maximum amount. This will make your photos much more realistic without ruining other important aspects, such as color.

You should be able to make good photos just by following these three simple steps, so get your camera and start experimenting!

How music defines a country

Music 10 November 2015 | Comments Off on How music defines a country

Did you ever wonder what would it be like to have a world without music? What would have happened if the world was a tough desert and there was no drop of music to quench our thirst? It is really something to give a thought to. What a disastrous thing it would have been? How dry and lifeless our world would seem? Is not it? Music is a source of life to us. It is a source of inspiration to almost all our work, directly or indirectly. Music motivates us in our day to day life’s work. It stands as the support system that empowers us to move on no matter what happens, no matter what comes our way. It helps us move forward with our life and adds life to our years.

Just food for thought, what would happen if the world had been defined by music? What would have happened if every country round the world has some music or some kind if musical instrument or some genre of music as their national symbol? What if these countries round the world is defined by that music. It would be such a wonder! Countries defined and characterized by music. So, here we are. Let’s take a stroll and find out by putting our little grey cells to work which country would have been fairing if they were musically categorized.


Rock and roll would be the best thing to define this country. The country has always been in the rock and roll. Rocking and rolling the world with something or the other. Be it theories of science or conspiracy theory, the country leads us all. Ever wonder why all the aliens from the entire universe and from other universes always attack the east coast of America. Pity on the statue of liberty, she has to face it all.


Speaking about the statue of liberty, who can forget the beautiful country of France? The city is a beauty to view with all those lovely monuments and works of art. And who can miss the fantastic light and sound at play at the Eifel tower. You can read more about those lights here. The country is just like opera music, full of history and delight. It is a classic in its every aspect. You can love it, hate it but can never ignore it.


India is a land of unity in diversity they say. It is country that is just like classical music. It is like wonderfully lighted palace which has antiques of every taste. It is like the accumulation of all that is uniquely classical and a heritage. The country though is developing very rapidly with all the modern features from both home and abroad, can never let go its old traditional ways of life which are inseparably associated with its soul.

There are be many more examples that you can come up with because as diverse and unique are the nations around the world so is music. Music truly is omnipresent.

Trailers – An Important Part of a Good Movie

Hobbies,Moviemaking 9 November 2015 | Comments Off on Trailers – An Important Part of a Good Movie

A few years back watching movies was a completely different experience. About three decades or four from now the multiplexes were in only in the minds of their pioneers and single theatres ruled. The pop corns and sizzlers were two very different from what we get today in the finely furnished food corners of our neighborhood multiplexes. They were very different back then. And, what else were different? The movies in the 90’s and 80’s were also quite not similar with those we see now. They were well not at all high definition, for starters. Can you just imagine how different they were? You can surely do if you just keep a bond movie from that time period and the trailer of specter side by side and watch one after the other. The entire psychology has changed.

Talking about trailers, these are one of the most important changes that have taken place recently. Trailers were very different back in the last decade or the decade before that. One could see a trailer before the beginning of a movie in a theater or a movie hall. Therefore earlier to watch a trailer you had to watch another movie as a whole. On in other words trailers were shown before some other movie in a cinema or movie hall before the beginning of another movie so that you would have that movie in the trailer, in your subconscious mind and this will lure you back to that place to watch that same movie when it releases.

The concept of a trailer for a movie is like FramingNailerReport. The latter nails stuffs like wooden materials down for good and make then strongly bound so that they could be held together for a good long period of time. These framing guns are there out in the market to make sure the stuffs you intending to stick must stick together till death does the apart. Trailers are much similar to this concept. Trailers are made by the makers of the film to create a thirst in our hearts to watch the films and they do so by giving us a vague idea about the film and yet keep in mind reveal nothing what so ever about the movie so that we are in a fix and our impatience bar would rise and rise till we not see the film. A very well put marketing strategy and nothing else.

But down the timeline the idea or the theme of the trailer for a movie has undergone drastic changes. Earlier they were made out of scene from the films, but now we see many a time trailers are separately made by expert trailer makers who are like film makers and scene are taken from the movie as well as separately shot. They are now not only confined to the movie halls but are widely accessible all over the internet for you to see as many times you want to see them.

In this age of change and advancement with everything from the art and concept of film making to the marketing strategies changing constantly, the trailers are no different to miss this wind of change.

Make Your Own Clash Memorabilia

Hobbies,Music 6 November 2015 | Comments Off on Make Your Own Clash Memorabilia

We here believe that music is one of the best things humankind has come up with. It’s not just about its beneficial effect on our brains, but also about all those emotions it can introduce you to. Listening to music will sometimes make you feel sad, sometimes happy, and sometimes even angry, but what all those states have in common is the feeling of happiness you experience because you’re able to hear something as beautiful as a melody.

Most music fans have some bands and genres that they love more than others. We, as you might have guessed, are fans of The Clash. And although our preferred types of music can be on the opposite sides of the specter, most of us have one thing in common: apart from loving the songs, we also love the memorabilia. If you too get excited every time you see a bunch of badges or posters, you might like the idea of making your own stuff. Here are a couple of things you can make by yourself.

Turn your lyrics collection into a collage

This is one of the easiest things you can make, and it doesn’t require operating heavy machinery. You probably have a bunch of old pictures and posters of The Clash, as well as a collection of their lyrics. What we’re suggesting is to take all of them, rearrange them in a creative way, glue the result of your effort to a piece of cardboard paper, and hang it on your wall. It will make a great addition to any home or apartment.

Make a Mick Jones’ guitar replica

This one is a bit tough, but doesn’t it sound awesome? To make it, you’re going to need some tools, of course. For cutting the wood into the right shape, it would be best to use a circular saw, but a regular one will do if you’re even remotely precise. After you’ve cut the wood, you’ll need to sand it a bit, at least the edges. You can check out the sanding tools here: http://beltsanderworld.com/. And after this is done, you can go ahead and start painting your new guitar! It’s certainly the most fun part of the process, but make sure to use the right paint and finish.

Use your records to make an installation worthy of The Clash

Now that you’ve finished checking Belt Sander World for sanding tools, we can go to our next project. It’s not as demanding as the previous one. To make this installation, you’re going to need a dozen or so of old The Clash records. You can glue them to a cardboard, just like with the collage, but you can also pierce each one of them and then connect them with a piece of string or wire.

Design your own The Clash poster

You’ve probably already designed one of those in your head, but we’re saying that you should actually try to do it. Let your imagination run wild, or simply make a combination of their album covers, and who knows? You might even create a masterpiece!

Get Physical

History,Music 30 October 2015 | Comments Off on Get Physical

Lady equipped for aerobics sessionIt did not have any appeal to us at the time.

It meant absolutely nothing to The Clash. Curiously, our folks seemed to love it. But they were never influenced by the lyrics nor did they act on it like many other easy to influence folks at the time. One of the best-known lame contributions to the eighties mindset was Australian-born, Olivia Newton-John’s Physical, both song and album. This struggling seventies icon lifted herself up on the bandwagon and became part of the eighties fad of aerobics pioneered by legendary American actress, Jane Fonda. If we’re not mistaken, her career was on the wane too.

The rich and famous example

Never mind that, this lass is now pushing eighty. If you’d seen her squeezing Harvey Keitel’s bum earlier this year at the Cannes Film festival, you would not have guessed. Keitel, in his seventies, doesn’t look too bad either. But then again, most famous and successful actors don’t. Being physical is part and parcel of what makes a high-grossing actor these days. He may not be able to act much, but Tom Cruise, into his fifties, is one of the highest paid performers of all time.

His physical conditioning is superb and he does not mind boasting that he still performs most of his-death defying stunts himself. Surviving members of The Clash have long since dumped their sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll image. Apart from their mature age, this image no longer sells records. Now, you may not be a fitness freak (yet) but those of you who have gym memberships downtown have not yet once seen the rich and famous on the floor. There’s a good reason for this. Loaded as they are (with money, not drugs) they have customized, home-built gyms  set up somewhere yonder within their sprawling mansions.

Set the mood right

We’ve got news for you. Hollywood bombshells, hunks and ageing rockers aren’t the only ones with self-styled gyms at home. Ordinary folks like you are doing it for themselves. You can get really physical by setting up your own gym too. It doesn’t have to start with much. Read what Garage Gym Life has to say about this when you have a chance. We’ve got something more important to tell you before we go.

Apart from The Clash’s extensive record library, one of the all-time rock classics comes from fellow-Britons, Queen. Fat Bottomed Girls makes reference to ‘music makes the rocking world go round’. Admit it, fellow Clashers; we cannot live without music, can we? Where would the world be without it otherwise? We also have to admit that while those old girls weren’t our favorite cups of tea, they did set the tone where exercise is concerned. Fonda and Newt demonstrated how much music helps set the mood just right (not that us head-bangers need much encouragement).

So, a final word to the uninitiated; let music rule your world.
