Tip Line

‘Music is not a recreation for the elite, but a source of spiritual strength [that] all cultured people should endeavor to turn into public property.’ —- Zolt’an Koda’aly, Hungarian music teacher/composer(1882-1967)

‘Every time I open a newspaper, I am reminded that we live in a world where we can no longer afford to know our neighbors. The ‘Silk Road Project’ is a musical way to get to know your neighbors.’ —- Yo-Yo Ma, American Cellist and ambassador of music.

“Save the music! Keep music and radio free for everyone!”

This is a ‘video’ about the power of ‘free’ music!

‘I think it’s important to have a good hard failure when you’re young. — Walt(Elias) Disney, American Cartoonist, (1901-1966)

Either though Walt Disney was a racist/sexist/homophobic bastard, this was the only good advice that I found from him. And he did made some of the most memorable works and a theme park. Many years after his death, the company he ‘imfromously’ bulited has made a change of heart and walked away from the shameful legacy made by Disney.

Walt Disney was once a poor farm boy who couldn’t afford paper to draw. As a kid he often got in trouble for ‘drawing’ on the back of his father’s farm wall. As Walt grew up, he had a share of failures. With the money he saved up and his brother’s help, he created the now famous ‘Walt Disney’ Studios. It was all thanks to a ‘hater’ that the ‘Benous Vista’ Company has stood the test of time.

I don’t want to say this.

But I have to.

Thanks for the ‘tip’, Mr. Disney!

In this video, there is no bloodshed.

Just a bruised pride.

Here’s the showdown.

Easter egg

Published April 26, 2010 by ladyserenity92

This is a ‘TV joke-ad’ easter egg for Dr. Pepper/IronMan 2(Marvel) tie-in. No indorsements were made for this post nor the blog itself.

 In the Dr. Pepper ‘joke-ad, a young man sneaks inside  Ironman Tony Stark’s lab. The ‘teift’ hopes to ‘snag’  a ‘suovenare’ from the legendary IronMan. Here’s the real ‘easter egg’. The ‘janitor’ who catches the ‘inturtor’ is no other than comic book artist and Marvel Comics founder, Stan Lee.

Oh, John and Finn Munch, see the ‘easter egg’ for yourself. I can’t wait for Ironman 2 this summer. Enjoy!

RE: TV Turn Off Week 2010

Published April 25, 2010 by ladyserenity92

I almost made it without a week of television.

But the telly got me most of the time.

But on the head-side of the penny, I’m now more careful on chosing which shows to watch and chosing other alternatives besides watching TV.

I guess you could say that I nearly went ‘TV Free’. 😉

Oh, well! But next month I’ll be doing it again.

Even in September.

Have a nice day!

Stay tuned!

The Place where my “Blog” was born!

Published April 24, 2010 by ladyserenity92

It was on July 2, 2008 I took a blogging class. It was a free computer class that I signed up for. In the computer class, there were a lot of  faces of people from all walks of the town. Some were young kids; others were adults. The ‘faces’ in the computer class had many different reasons on why they wanted to take the blogging class. The instructor  told us that at the end of the class we would get a ‘free gift’ for participating.

In the blogging class , we all had a reason why we wanted a weblog. Some of us wanted to blog as a hobby, a few of us wanted to have one  for  fame; a few other people wanted to contact their long-lost relatives. Me… I guess you could say my ‘friends and teachers’ forced me into it.

Our instructor (with a huge knowledge of computers) showed us how to work a blog. Long before I got this ‘blog’, I went to a bookstore in the same building where the ‘class’ took place and took a lot of books on blogging. (The books were free with a ‘card’.) 😉

After what seemed like a 3-hour session(it was dark and almost closing time), the instructor shocked us at what our ‘free gift’ was. It was our own blog. It has been two years since I visited my city library for the blogging class. The staff have become my friends. In the library, you become a celebrity.

I’m now sitting at the library’s public computer, which is closing its doors. Forever.

All over America, so many wonderful libraries are forcing to close their doors because of the budget crises. The Public libraries in North Carolina(Including Charlotte) are cutting back free programs and hours. It’s a crying shame, but it’s true.

The library was where I met my friends, dabbled into the bibliophile scene, and where I got my first blog.

The library means everything to people young and old; rich and poor. It’s the place where people come together to study, to surf the internet; it the library closes, then its everyone’s lost.

Where ever you are, in the Queen City, in Chi Town; the Big Easy or the East/West coast, please support your local library anyway you can. Libraries are what make people free. It we lost the place that matters to the community all over, we have lost a place that makes us free.

Stay Tuned!

A dream right out of a Teenage French”Soap Novel”!

Published April 21, 2010 by ladyserenity92

This song would have been the theme song to a romantic France teen ‘schoolgirl’ soap novel, or a ‘shojo’ for that matter.

It’s true that the song was in French when it was played in Quebec, B.C. in 1981.

The reality was that this  young woman really did live the life of a ‘French’ soap novel heroine.

She grew up poor in a shack with a lot of brothers and sisters. Although her parents were deeply strict, they shared a love of music with the girl and the rest of the family. On most nights, since television was a ‘sin’ lexury, the raido was their soruce of entainment.

At the age of thirteen, the girl left home to start a singing creere.

At sixteen, the young woman  fell in love with her adult male manager and became his wife.

There were some bumps in the road that she had to overcome.

One of them was having to learn English.

To this day, that young woman is still singing and  performing on stages across the world.

And her songs are still played all over the airwaves.

Although she has everything handed to her on a golden platter,

The woman still hasn’t forgotten where she came from.

It was her first song that told people all over Quebec and the world that in order to make your dreams come true, don’t just sit there and dream your life away; get out into the world and make your dreams happen for real.

Although her song is in French, the message in her song speaks to everyone.

Thank you, Ms. Celine Dione!
