ALONAS, a new blitz in the world of Indonesian music!

It’s been long enough for Indonesia to enjoy the nuances of music rebound from the other and the musicians FRESH homeland of Indonesia today. Well, actually, is today Indonesia has a lot to lose talented musicians? I do not assume so … out there, I’m sure there are so many talented people in the world of music, but one question from me …. Where did THEY GO FOR THIS? In the center of boredom that happened, unexpectedly, I found a link of music video clip which is quite interesting and tempting me. Yes, this video is made with very unusual. For me personally, which is quite interesting is this video made and published by the person whose name has not been too popular in Indonesian music world today.

At first, this video looks very known to me, and to be honest, when I first heard the intro when this new music presented, I was soundless for a moment and feel amazed at the sincerity of this singer in the song. Hmmm, when Indonesia was flowing into a period of saturation in the music (at least that’s my opinion), this video clip offers something very different from the others and sounds very interesting. Rebound intro music which combined with the booming Arabian nuanced shades of rock songs and then wrapped with POP shades make this series a very unique music to be heard over and over again.

Hmmm, very interesting

However, pssssst … …please do not tell anyone okay ….

The female artist who sings this song is very hot LOL. With a gorgeous body and swaying sensuously presented along this video, making it look like a woman who is very talented and super sexy in this video. Oh yes, since i was too cool to talk about my experience will tell you this video, I almost forgot to introduce who the singer in this video and what song title that brings. Please sorry about that. Yes, the name of the singer is ALONAS. By bringing the flag from ALONAS MUSICENTER INDONESIA (AMI), Alonas appear very amazing in -PUJAAN HATI- video. Video duration of 3 minutes it becomes very feasible for you to enjoy whenever you want. With a blend of tones of all types of music that exist, -PUJAAN HATI- will make you feel excited in the past schedule your daily activities – day

. For me, there is a pretty interesting than this -PUJAAN HATI- video clip. And the quite interesting thing is the story behind the scenes of this ALONAS own personal. Yes, for me who loves to learn about a person’s life, the story of this ALONAS has its own meaning in life.

ALONAS do not just achieve success this time very easily. There are so many roads she had traveled in her life journey. All the joys and sorrows had he lived in an attempt to create a better quality of life for herself and her families. ALONAS known as a jovial person, full of smiles and familiar by people in her surrounding areas. However, it does not mean ALONAS is a mentally weak person, but on the contrary, ALONAS’ mental is very courageous in living life this. As a man, I fully recognize women like him. Although she has a very beautiful face, body shape and size is ideal, ALONAS remained a humble person in front of family and friends. Well, indeed there may be some who regard her as a person who is very arrogant and stubborn. However, for me, it was natural for her who now is one of the public icon.

Well, everyone has their own story in her life. Continue to work for ALONAS and show is that you really – really deserve to be loved by all citizens of Indonesia. And if you love to know more about ALONAS, you can directly point your browser to http://www.alonas.name

The role of woman in Soyinka’s The Lion and the Jewel, Death and the King’s Horseman and The Swamp

R. Saravana Selvakumar Assistant Professor Department of English V.V.College of Engineering Tisaiyanvilai

The role of woman in Soyinka’s The Lion and the Jewel, Death and the King’s Horseman and The Swamp Dwellers.

African American community remained silent about gender even as race has moved to the forefront of our nation’s consciousness. Hard-hitting and brilliant in its analysis of culture and sexual politics; Gender Talk asserts boldly that gender matters are critical to the Black community in the twenty-first century. In the Black community, rape, violence against women and sexual harassment are as much the legacy of slavery as is racism. Johnnetta Betsch Cole and Beverly Guy-Sheft all argue powerfully that the only way to defeat this legacy is to focus on the intersection of race and gender. Gender Talk examines why the race problem has become so male-centered and how this has opened a deep divide between Black women and men. The authors turn to their own lives, offering intimate accounts of their experiences as daughters, wives, and leaders. They examine pivotal moments in African American history when race and gender issues collided with explosive results-from the struggle for women’s suffrage in the nineteenth century to women’s attempts to gain a voice in the Black Baptist movement and on into the 1960s, when the Civil Rights movement and the upsurge of Black Power transformed the Black community while sidelining women. Through the centuries, the Hindu woman in literature has been based on the mythic models from Ramayana and Puranas: Sita, the silent sufferer – the archetype of Indian womanhood; the Earth-Mother, forbearance personified; the playmate and beloved Radha; the devotee Meera. Patterned on these Hindu models, the woman is often passive accepting the dynamic role of the men in her life.

Indian woman, for this very reason of pride in suffering, and due to years of inculcation about the necessity to accept her role, may not like her husband to step in and do her work. She is taught the importance and necessity of a stable marriage and family – family as security as a source of emotional strength. Even in sexual matters she has very little choice; her husband’s needs must be fulfilled first. Sex becomes routine, for there is no overt discussion of sex. He does not think of her as a human being with whom he can have a conversation, can communicate. He visualizes her as a sex object, someone he can enjoy in bed, and one who can produce his children – at least one male child to continue his family line. In her anxiety to please, in her yearning to be recognized, in her desire to gain a prominent position in the family hierarchy, the woman longs for a son – her social redeemer, thus perpetrating male dominance and patriarchy. -Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen- (Uma 1). These words spoken by a black woman could very well have been uttered by an Indian woman. May be some of the troubles are different, may be the Indian woman was not uprooted, enslaved, and violated by the white man. But in her own way, she, the Indian woman, has carried the burden of the family, has slaved for the husband, her children, and her family – whether extended or nuclear. Like the Indo-Anglian woman, the Afro-American woman is -to use of Harlem, subjective, willful and complexly and compellingly human- (Uma 10). But -strong’ is what an Afro-American woman is commonly labeled as. Not strong as much as domineering what most people fail to realize is that historical reality automatically overrules the term domineering. In Africa, the conditions of the black race deteriorated under the rule of the white men. The main factor in this respect was the dislocation which affected the old village community and disturbed the natural balance between males and females. The black woman, aware of her man’s exploitative relationship with her, is unenthusiastic about the birth of a son. For her, feminity represents respectability, dependability. Since the age of Aristotle, patriarchy has been working on the assumption that women are incapable of rational thought and therefore, they are naturally inferior to men. Women constitute half the humanity. Women are being extolled in literature; the saying goes that there is a woman behind every successful man. Bacon accords a very significant place for woman in man’s life. His statement amply explains the concept, wives are young men’s mistresses; companions for middle age; and old men’s mistresses. In the life of man, woman plays a vital role as mother, sister and wife. But still, it is disputable whether woman is given a due place she deserves. All along, she is treated only as -the other’. She is considered as physically weak and very emotional in nature. So she cannot be independent to take decisions of her own as she is not mature enough to decide her future. Since most human societies are male-dominated, women are subjected to many social evils like -purdah’ system, female infanticide, child marriage, dowry system, enforced widowhood and denial of education. She is made to act as an unpaid domestic servant and is subjected to perpetual torture by a demanding husband, a ruthless mother-in-law and a nagging sister in law. It is said that man’s cruelty towards man is exceeded only by man’s cruelty to woman. Woman’s subjugation is master-minded by patriarchal systems. The patriarchal systems do not allow women to realize their aspirations and ambitions. Every girl is taught and brought up as a subordinate to the male member. She is made aware that she is different from a boy and so her aspirations and ambitions are different from those of boys. Boys are nurtured to grow up as ambitious, rational and dynamic. The girls are encouraged to cultivate qualities like grace, gentleness and docility. In order to bring out woman to the forefront and to fight for her liberty, feminist movement comes into existence. The main aim of the feminist’s movement is to liberate woman from all kinds of shackles which do not allow her to develop her full potential as a free and an autonomous individual. All Feminists are not necessarily women, as there are also men who fight for the rights of women. Thus feminism is a social, political and cultural movement that focuses on gender differences due to biological difference. It questions the rationale behind the culturally determined notions of superiority. It asserts that men have historically imposed their will on women to convince them of their inferiority. Wole Soyinka’s women are built on the African traditional setup. Though they are considered as an inferior subject in Africa, Soyinka’s women are equally treated with men. Soyinka’s play The Lion and Jewel is a spirited and ribald account of African village life that explores the conflicts between traditional and modern values, third World reality against first world ideals, and the power of men against the influence of women. The action is interspersed with raucous African song and dance. The visit of the photographer is told as a play within a play, a musical re-enactment with the villagers acting out the events of that day. Soyinka’s Sidi in The Lion and the Jewel opts for tradition. When the teacher Lakunle and Chief Baroka vie for her affection, at first she will have nothing to do with them. She is a free woman. Yet the kind of -westernization’ which Sidi might have adored is chafed at in Soyinka’s play. The pedantic schoolmaster’s ideas of what is -civilized’ are truly laughable. Lakunle promises Sidi that they will eat: Together we shall sit at table -Not on the floor – and eat, Not with fingers, but with knives And forks and breakable plates Like civilized beings. (9) Finally she agrees to marry Lakunle if he will pay the bride-price: I’ve told you, and I say it again I shall marry you today, next week Or any day you name But my bride-price must first be paid. (7)

The sympathies of the audience are entirely with Sidi. All through the play the use of mime, masquerade, and dance is most convincing, anticipating for instance Sidi’s seduction scene, emphasizing the virility of the Baroka and the tawdriness of the school teacher and the European photographer. Sidi’s zest for life makes her not only an individual but an individualist. Soyinka has advanced the process of individual assertiveness one step further; to Sidi her own personal values are what matter, she never compromises. It is Sadiku, the chief wife of Baroka, very cleverly tries to inveigle Sidi into a visit to the Palace. So that Baroka may use coaxing or force according to circumstances. She invites Sidi to a supper party to be given by the chief. Sidi declines and says that Baroka is in the habit of inviting to his parties only girls on whom he has designs. Always, they become his wives or concubines by the next day. As a woman in a polygamous society, Sadiku has been trained to put with many things which may hurt her self-respect as an individual. She has not merely to put up with the favourites her husband has been choosing from time to time, but also to invite the woman on whom his fancy falls to marry him. On the surface, she is loyal to her husband and, if her attempts to persuade Sidi are typical, she puts her heart and soul in recruiting new brides for her husband. But Soyinka portrays her individuality in revealing to us her long-standing resentment at sharing her husband with many women. Her stifled self-respect asserts itself in her dance of triumph at the supposed loss of manliness by Baroka and in her attempt to celebrate it by a mummer’s show: Sadiku: Ask no questions my girl. Just join my victory dance. Oh Sango my lord, who of us possessed your lightning and ran like fire through that lion’s tail- Sadiku: – Is Baroka not more of a man than you? And if he is no longer a man than what are you?… (33-34) Sadiku is interesting by herself, an old woman who is not soured by life and whom age has not deprived of high spirits. The Iyaloja, leader of the market women in Death and the King’s Horseman, taunts Elesin because he insisted on tasting a young girl on the eve of his death and allowed the taste to weaken his resolve. That this insistence was in itself startling, even unprecedented, is indicated in the earlier scene where he hints at his desire for the girl, who is already promised to the Iyaloja’s son. The Iyaloja dare not understand him, but he clarifies his meaning beyond doubt. The Elesin’s speech is sophistical, with its imagery of earth, seed and plantain shoots, its scorn of mere desire, its insistence upon his sanctity as a man already dedicated to death, and hence upon the sanctity of his wishes. But his desire is nevertheless apparent, and it is one which holds him to life instead of freeing him from it. It is also, although Soyinka does not emphasize this, profoundly contrary to the usual rituals of preparing oneself for a great spiritual task; rituals which stress abstinence, whether from food, drink or sex, rather than indulgence of senses which may cloud the will. Yet the Iyaloja grants his wish without a struggle, because she appears to accept his argument for its sanctity as coming from one already touched by the waiting fingers of out departed. Only when preparing him for the marriage bed does she remind him that it must also be the bed of death. In terms, in the play, the future is not really separable from the past, and must suffer whatever contamination today’s events may spill upon it. It is only in this restricted sense that the Iyaloja can tell us, in the play’s closing words: -Now forget the dead, forget even the living. Turn your mind only to the unborn- (219). Iyaloja gives sanction to the marriage of Elesin Oba and the young girl with the hope that any child born of the woman should be -neither of this world nor of the next. Nor of the one behind us. As if the timelessness of the ancestor world and the unborn have joined spirits to wring an issue of the elusive being of passage- Elesin!- (162). Iyaloja asserts her faith in the unborn. All the character roles in The Swamp Dwellers were very strong. Alu is shown as a very determined and focused woman. She shows many good characteristics in the story, but as a woman for that time, era and setting, her manor was quite different. Alu represents determination. This is determination in many ways. One side of her determination is to locate where she -believers’ her lost son Igwezu is. As any mother would do, she shows such determination to find him and will do whatever it takes to bring him home to the country. While discussing her son with her husband, Makuri, she shows her determination as she states: Alu: I’m going after him. I don’t want to lose him too. I don’t want him missing his foothold and vanishing without a cry, without a chance for anyone to save him- Alu: I’m going out to shout his name until he hears me- (83) The two women in the family – Igwezu’s mother, Alu and his wife, Desala – are sharply contrasted. The weakness and infidelity of Igwezu’s wife provide a contrast to the strength and virtue of his mother. Despite temptations from visiting traders, Alu had remained faithful to her husband. Similarly, the mutual understanding and affection between the old couple, Makuri and Alu, despite their bickering and finding fault with each other, contrast itself with the awful lack of the same between the young couple Igwezu and Desala. Soyinka’s Alu in The Swamp Dwellers is the strong figure hopelessly fettered by her rigid concept of tradition. Alu has her virtues in not being carried away by the glitter of city life or the lure of city-traders’ money. Makuri, Alu’s husband, had reason to be really proud of his steadfast wife, who -turned their traders’ heads but- kept her own- (108). In spite of her strength of character, Alu can exercise no influence over her twin sons. The story of Igwezu, one of the twins, is a story of poignant loss on all sides. He lives to lose his wife, Desala, to his brother in the city and loses his harvest to the flood and swamp in the village. Igwezu returns to the city, belonging neither to the village nor the city, which merely swallows another victim down its gargantuan throat. Once again Alu manifests her limitation by losing both her sons through her blind adherence to traditional values. Alu shows a mother’s concern for the safety of her sons who have ventured into the city and away from the maternal protection. One of her sons, Awuchike, has been away from home for ten years, and to his mother he is dead. Makuri scolds her: The older you get, the more of a fraud you become. Every day for the past ten years, you’ve done nothing but swear that your son was dead in the marshes. And now you sit there like a crow and tell me that you’re waiting for news about him. Alu: [stubbornly] I know he’s dead. (82) Although her husband understands the reason why the young will drift away from the land and tries to explain it to her – Awuchike got sick of this place and went into the city’ Alu remains firm in her conviction that he was drowned in the swamps. The assumption is that if he had stayed at home, she would have offered him the protection he needed. Soyinka’s women enjoy prestige in the hierarchy of marriage in The Lion and the Jewel. The second or third wife holds higher status over a single woman, the first wife maintains the most privilege among the women in the family. Traditionally, the first wife would choose her husband’s second and third wives and act as a go-between or Alarena, to propose the marriage. Sadiku in The Lion and the Jewel act as the go-between Sidi and Baroka and plays a major role in getting her married to Baroka. The final surrender of Sidi to Baroka is evidence of the victory of traditional African values over the modern European ones in the African context. The weakness and strength, infidelity and virtue are contrasted with the two women- Igwezu’s mother and his wife in The swamp Dwellers. The pain and agony of Alu moves the play to the theme of motherhood. The love for her lost sons and later the depressed Igwezu makes her remains faithful to her husband. It is understood that Soyinka’s women are built on the African traditional set up. Though they are considered as an inferior subject in Africa, Soyinka’s women are equally treated with men, sometimes these women direct men and advice them. For example Iyaloja in Death and the Kings Horseman represents traditional wisdom. Whereas Sidi in The Lion and the Jewel is a girl of high spirit and she respects the traditional values throughout the play. Finally Alu and Igwezu’s wife in The Swamp Dwellers remain faithful to their husbands. It is clear that women enjoy prestige in the traditional Nigerian society

Qualities of a Good Music Composer

Music has always fascinated people in every era – irrespective of their gender, age and ethnicity. Since it does not have any language, speakers of every language can listen to it. If we take a closer look at the growth of the music industry, we will learn that while every industry sees a stead growth, music industry has changed drastically over time. There is a lot of difference between what we used to hear before and what we hear today.

The major reason for this difference is influx of new talent in this industry. Every music composer who enters the music industry is talented in their own way and they feel no hesitation in experimenting with different music types. As a result, we get to hear unique compositions every time a song or an album is released.

Each year a number of music composers venture into the world of music. While some of them are really passionate about making their career as a professional composer, many are only attracted to the instant success many good composers see right after their first launch. However, the irony is that not every composer is well-received by this industry. You have to have some key qualities to become a successful music composer. Some of these qualities are:

Creativity and Artistic Mind

Since people do not listen to music they think they have heard already, it is imperative that you bring some creativity in your work. It will make your work stand out from others. Also, it will give people a reason to buy your composition when they have thousands other choices to select an album from.

Then you must also have some knowledge about different types of music so that you can amalgamate them to create something unique. If you posses all these qualities and are willing to take up the challenge, no one can stop you from becoming a popular composer.

Career Choices

Once you decide to become a composer, there are several opportunities you can avail to earn a good fortune. One of the best opportunities is to work for movies. There are big chances of success in this line. Furthermore, if you are unable to work as a full-time employee, you can offer your services as a freelancer.

Those who think that successful composers are just lucky and have no talent are wrong. They need to realize that in order to keep the graph of your success you need to have an amazing flair of music. Your album might become a mega hit the first time due to luck, however, it might not help you the second time. What helps you always is your passion and the ability to be creative.

How To Flirt With A Hot Korean Girls

Why is it that so many Western men are attracted to Korean Girls? Why is it that each year, more Americans, Canadians, Australians, Germans, and guys from other countries are getting married to Asian women?

Well, the physical appeal of Asian women is undeniable. Their silky black hair…slim, firm, petite bodies…and even the graceful way that they walk.

I am sure their gorgeous, exotic features are attractive to you. And then there is the sense of “shy innocence” that Korean women possess. It makes us curious to discover more about them, and it’s a big turn-on to think that beneath that shy exterior lies a sexual side that is waiting to be unleashed…

Of course, you couldn’t tell a Western woman that you have this preference. The Western woman will assume that your love of Korean Girls is about wanting to have a “slave” who waits on you hand and foot and cleans your house. The bitter Western woman thinks that men who date Asian women aren’t “man” enough to be with a “real lady.”

This couldn’t be farther from the truth, and you already know this if you’ve been with beautiful Korean women. The Asian girlfriends I’ve had have been smart, self-sufficient, opinionated and strong. Yet at the same time, they radiate pure femininity.

They make a man feel like…well, like a MAN!

It’s the way that you and I, as men, were born to feel. We need to be with a feminine, loving partner in order for us to feel confident and content. If you don’t believe me, just ask your married buddies who are hitched to overbearing, nagging wives. They’re miserable!

Wanting to date Korean women isn’t any weird “fetish,” nor does it suggest that you are in any way deficient or unable to handle a relationship with a woman of your own race. On the contrary, I say that you are enlightened! You’re willing to think “outside the box” and not follow the same script that your friends do — the guys who settle for whatever girl they can get, because they’re convinced that in order to date stunningly beautiful women (or a hot younger woman) you need to be rich, famous or have movie-star good looks.

These guys accept the idea that they’re never going to be with a hot, sexy, hard-bodied woman who respects and adores them — and so, once they reach a certain age, they marry a girl who they think is “compatible” with them (which usually means, she’s as boring and ordinary as he is).

What percentage of these guys wind up feeling truly happy with their lives and are sexually fulfilled? My guess is that this number is very small. Most of my married buddies tell me how jealous they are of my lifestyle, which involves a lot of traveling to Asia and dating Korean Girls.

Look, we’re all driven by the same needs and desires that we shared with our ancestors 10,000 years ago. We are hard-wired to be men. We desire women who are soft and feminine, and respond to our masculinity and strength. Korean woman cater to this need like no other type of female.

I believe there are a number of valid, important reasons why so many guys want to date Asian women. Some of these reasons, we’re not even aware of on a conscious level. Here are some of the big ones. (Note, these characteristics do not apply to all Asian women. I’m talking about the caliber of Asian women that you’ll want to meet and be with.)

#1 They are physically sexy and appealing.

The silky hair; flawless skin; petite, hard bodies; and exotic Oriental features add up to combination that a lot of men find irresistible.

It’s also interesting to note that the Asian face, because of the way it’s constructed, reveals less emotion than the faces of Caucasians. This makes Korean Girls “harder to read” than Caucasian women, who are known to express their feelings constantly (whether you want to hear them or not!).

This gives Korean Woman an air of mystery and unpredictability, which is powerfully attractive to men — because we’re hard-wired to thrive on the thrill of the hunt.

One more note on the physical appeal of Asian women: they usually have beautiful skin and don’t age and develop wrinkles the same way that Caucasian women do. Korean Girls are known to remain very attractive as they get older.

#2 They tend to be quite approachable.

I’m constantly approaching and chatting up women, and I’ve noticed that even the most beautiful Asian women are easier to approach than Western women. They love to be flirted with, too. When I’m in Asia, I can simply give a girl a friendly smile and say to them in their language: “You’re very cute, may I know your name?” I’ll almost always get a smile in return, and we’ll have a conversation. An American woman, on the other hand, might suspect that you’re “hitting on her” and not give you the time of day.

The fact is, Asian women smile more. It’s part of their culture. You can visit provinces in the Philippines that are poorer than anything you’ve ever seen, and the people (and the women, in particular) will always greet you with a smile.

Thailand is literally known as “The Land Of Smiles” because people smile all the time. (This can be confusing to foreigners, since the “Thai smile” can actually mean a lot of different things — I explain this in the “Secrets Of Dating Korean Woman” book. But at any rate, it beats being around a bunch of frowning, frumpy Western women!)

It’s mind-blowing to stroll through a big shopping mall in a city like Manila, Jakarta or Bangkok…because so many young, beautiful Asian women will smile at you when you make eye contact with them!

Now, compare this to the shopping malls in the Western world. At a mall in an American city, the women will AVOID eye contact with you — and if you try to approach them and start a conversation, chances are you will freak them out. The culture is way less open and friendly.

It’s true that Korean Girls generally are more “shy” than Western women — but this is just at first. When you know how to converse with them the right way, their shy exterior will quickly melt away and they will be friendly and warm. Much of the “shyness” you are perceiving has to do with their great concern about being polite.

At that point, the key is knowing how to build their interest and attraction. The “Secrets Of Dating Asian Women” program will show you how to do that.

Korean Girls take great pride in managing the household and are excellent homemakers. A household run by an Asian woman is always going to be clean and organized. The meals will be prepared with care and love.

Even the poorest families keep their living space as clean as possible. In Asia, women will always make sure that your home is clean, and they will take pride in cooking your meals and keeping you well-fed.

#4 They have a rich sense of culture and heritage.

Many Westerners are fascinated by the colorful, exotic, mysterious cultures of Asia, which are steeped in history. In recent times, Asia has gotten a reputation as being rather trendy among Westerners. This is particularly true with Japan, which Westerners have begun to recognize as a Mecca for fashion. (Japanese girls are years ahead of Western girls, with their super-cool, futuristic styles of dress.)

Why else would so many Caucasians, both men and women, put tattoos of Chinese and Japanese characters on their bodies, thinking it makes them look hip and “spiritual” — even though they’ve never even visited those countries? (Very lame, if you ask me…)

By dating Korean Girls, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more her fascinating culture — including its beliefs, traditions, music, cuisine, movies, arts, and history. This isn’t the case when you date a woman who grew up in the town next to yours. Being able to constantly learn new things about her culture, while sharing yours with her, can be a big advantage in a relationship. There is less chance of the two of you growing bored with each other. When you date an Asian woman and have genuine appreciation for her culture and background, there are new things for you to explore every day.

#5 Korean Girls place a high value on relationships and have unconditional love for their family.

Another attractive aspect of Asian women is that unlike most of their counterparts in Western countries, they put tremendous value on their families and relationships. Choose the right partner, and she’ll be highly loyal to you and will avoid doing anything that will damage the relationship. This tends to bring out the best in you as a man.

Did you know that the Philippines is one of only two countries in the world where there is no divorce? It does not exist. Filipinas are raised to believe that when they marry, it is for life. Even in other, more developed Asian countries (where there is divorce), it is considered a shameful last resort — unlike in Western countries, where the attitude isn’t until “til death us part.” It’s more like, “Let’s give it a try, and if it’s not working out six months from now, I’ll take your house and half your money, dumbass…”

Again, I must remind you that I am speaking in general terms here. Are all Asian women passionately loyal and committed to their relationships? Of course not. There are plenty of warped women and gold diggers out there; you’ve got to keep your wits about you and know to avoid them. (Which can be difficult when you find yourself dating an Asian girl with the tightest body you’ve ever laid your hands on!) The “Secrets Of Dating Asian Women” book contains some very helpful tips on this.

#6 The attraction between us and them seems to be a mutual thing.

One of the reasons why Western men are interested in dating Asian women is, quite simply, because they’ve been told that Asian women love Western men! This is certainly true when you are spending time in Asia, but it’s still true (to a slightly lesser degree) when you are meeting Asian women in a Western country. The thought of this “mutual interest” is what compels a lot of guys to seek Asian girlfriends.

It’s true that if you have light skin and are reasonably fit and attractive, women in Asia will have an “automatic” attraction towards you — because they have a strong desire to have light-skinned babies. In their culture, light skin is an indicator of status and beauty.

#7 When you date Asian women, interracial stigmas aren’t really a problem.

In the Western world, we’re much more accepting of other races than were were 100 or even 50 years ago. (Even 10 years ago, it would have been impossible to imagine an African-American president in the White House!) However, racism still persists in America — particularly with people’s attitudes towards relationships between people of different races.

The reality is that a white man marrying a black woman, or a black man marrying a white woman, is still considered unnacceptable by many people, or at the very least it is considered strange. But when Western guys and Asian women date, it is generally quite accepted. In fact, some people say it has become “trendy” in recent years to date Asian women! Now, I’m not saying this is an important reason why you should date Asian women, but it’s another positive factor to consider.

It has become very common for Asian women and non-Asian men to date and marry. While the differences between your culture and hers may create minor challenges in your relationship at times, these differences will also help to keep your relationship interesting and constantly evolving.

One difference in backgrounds that can create obstacles is if you marry an Asian woman who comes from a very poor family, since you may be expected to provide financial support for her relatives. I talk more about this in the “Secrets Of Dating Asian Women” book.)

#8 Asian women have a spiritual core.

Many Asian women observe a religion and take it seriously. Whether she worships God, Buddha or whomever, religion tends to give Asian women a sense of calmness and inner peace that many Western women lack. Asian women don’t need to do constant “soul searching” and fret about what is lacking in their lives. For the Asian woman, a loving partner, a happy, healthy household, and the love of her family and God is enough.

#9 They have a hardworking nature.

Asian women typically start helping out their families from a very young age, waking up early to help out with house-hold chores. This is a dramatic difference from the way children are typically raised in Western countries. Also, they believe in working hard in order to provide a better future for their families.

You see this in immigrant communities throughout the West. Asian immigrants will work nonstop in order to send financial support to their families back in Asia, and to enable family members to come over from Asia to join them. They build their own businesses and are careful with their money. Asian people, in general, respect the importance fo hard work. A woman who is raised this way isn’t going to turn into a lazy, spoiled “princess” as soon as you put a ring on her finger!

#10 Asian women are meticulous about how they look.

I love the fact that beautiful Asian women are always concerned with how they look, and want to look beautiful no matter where they are. They also believe it’s important for them to “stay sexy” for their man! Western women, unfortunately, don’t usually act this way. Once they get married, they start gaining weight and feel they no longer need to worry about looking hot.

Actually, I think this is one of the reasons why Western women seem to resent it when guys prefer dating Asian women — they’re jealous of Asian women (and their fantastic ability to stay slim and maintain their sexy, youthful looks!).

It took me a long time to figure out how to date and attract beautiful Korean Girls, and how to make them feel that powerful physical and emotional response called ATTRACTION. I suggest you read my book “Secrets Of Dating Korean Girls” because it explains all of these secrets. You won’t have to rely on “trial and error” as I did. With my book, you can learn right now how to use proven tactics and techniques to attract and date the Get Girls you desire.

Time To Take Kids’ Music Lessons

Many parents wonder what age is optimal for their child to enroll into a kids music lessons. Some think the child should start almost at the time they are born. Some don’t want to deprive a child of their childhood and try not to overload them with extracurricular activities. There are also other opinions.
Who is right? How can we find an optimal solution? Anyone can find a bunch of ideas, examples and suggestions on the Internet about music helping a child with their education. Yes, in a magical way music impacts the brain of both adults and children. This is an indisputable fact that has been scientifically proven. If some of you parents do nott know about the advantages of your kids music lessons, it is strongly recommended that you find the necessary literature and read it. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised to find out what abilities your child might acquire should they choose to become a music student. They do not need to become a great pianist, guitarist or flute player. It would be enough for them to go to a music school.
Let’s assume you already know the advantages of a musical education. When should your kids music lessons begin? At what age are they ready to learn about music? My answer to this question would be your child can start taking music lessons when they feel they are ready. By that I mean they will be ready to engage in a program of musical education that has specific standards. Of course there are tons of preschool programs and centers for babies and these are great. But what kind of children should attend them?
In order for a child to display any music talent they have to be submerged in a music environment and the sooner the better. These conditions are necessary so they can accumulate a mental database of hearing musical impressions. If parents cannot create the needed environment or don’t know how to do it, it is time you go to the nearest center for early childhood education that offers music lessons. Specialists working there are very knowledgeable. They are very creative and have a great deal of learning material. If you do not have 10-15 minutes a day to help your child develop music abilities, you may also want to take advantage of what the educational center offers.
But you have to remember that going there two or three times a week is good but it won’t change much. Why? Imagine that your child hears human speech once or twice a week for 20-30 minutes… What are the chances they will start talking? The same goes for their musical abilities. The child has to listen to music daily and parents need to have an idea of simple things they can do to help the child. The database of musical sound impressions will gradually increase. At first they will try to make odd music sounds, and then they will be able to sing a couple of lines from a song they know that will be very close to the original.
If you have a good ear for music, don’t judge your child’s first vocal attempts too much. They are just starting to sing. After all you don’t seem to fret when they utter their first words and there sentences are not spoken correctly. A child’s musical talent can be compared to the small sprout that emerges from a seed and comes through the soil to greet the sun. Give them care, warmth, water, and protect them from the wind and the hot sun. Keep developing and enriching the database of musical sounds and stimulate and encourage any music initiative your child might display. There will be a day when your plant will blossom. You will see the pleasure your child gets from singing and they will dance once they hear the music.
Do nott rush your child into taking music classes. Let them choose when they want to take these classes. After they decide they want to learn about music then it is your turn to take action. Go out and get them the best kids music lessons available.

Subliminal Healing Music How To Get Out Of Depression Through Self Therapy

Feeling down and depressed? Most people who are depressed fail to overcome their problems and simply sink further into depression because they are not willing to get help. Some people feel ashamed of the feelings that lead them to feel depressed; some are not willing to face up to their problems.

But if youre feeling depressed, there is now a way to get out of it minus counseling or antidepressants with nasty side effects. Have you tried the following depression-dispelling methods?

1. Subliminal Messages. Depression is a weakness of the mind. In that weakness, you become vulnerable to almost any negative element out there. So what you need to do is train the mind and make it stronger and less vulnerable.

One way of doing this is by sending subliminal messages to your subconscious. This technique is widely used by people who want to change their perspectives but are unable to do so consciously. Since the messages are subliminal, they are not recognizable by the conscious state but the subconscious absorbs them easily. Since the conscious simply fleets from one influence to another, the main influences of the brain start at the subconscious level. So if the subconscious is filled with positive thoughts, even your conscious thought of being depressed will be convinced otherwise.

The problem is, most people suffering from depression have already weakened their minds a lot and are already unable to process any positive thoughts. Instilling positive affirmations all by themselves may be a bigger challenge. But there is one very effective and highly recommended solution to depression.

2. Subliminal Healing Music. One of the best ways to overcome depression is to listen to subliminal healing music. Music has always been known to have soothing effects. Music can calm the nerves and relieve stress. But if your mind has suffered from depression, what you need is subliminal healing music.

This is music recorded specifically for overcoming depression. These have subliminal messages already embedded in them. All you have to do is listen to the music and relax; you dont have to come up with subliminal messages of your own. While you listen, the hidden messages in the music go straight to your subconscious and plant positive thoughts there.

You can even choose music of your choice; your favorite songs may be able to evoke more positive feelings in you. You just have to look for subliminal healing music CDs that come in the musical genre you prefer.

This is the best subliminal for depression, even according to therapists.

3. Free Self-Healing Subliminal Downloads. Aside from subliminal messages hidden in songs, there are also self hypnosis subliminal persuasion audio programs that deliver positive thoughts to your subconscious. These programs may not necessarily use music, but work the same way.

You can find free self-healing subliminal downloads online if you dont want to spend. Now, without spending anything, you can overcome depression the natural way and live a happy and satisfied life.

Joe Pass – The Most Legendary Jazz Music Guitar Personality Ever – Part 2

Many guitarists have been shocked to learn that jazz guitarist Joe Pass performed on Fender solid body guitars on his earlier jazz guitar music albums. Commonly associated with surf and rock and roll performers, the Fender Jazz Master and Fender Jaguar models seem unlikely foils for his advanced bebop style, but Pass made the most of his circumstances. His Fender guitar sound is heard on recordings like 1961′s “Sounds of Synanon”, 1962′s “Something Special” (Groove Holmes) and “Moment of Truth” (Gerald Wilson), and 1963′s “Catch Me”, his initial album as a leader. He also used a Fender Bass VI six string bass guitar for a number of tracks on the latter date. Pass utilized a thinline Gibson ES-355 briefly during 1963. This was heard on his recording sessions as a sideman with Les McCann.

Joe Pass performed on these atypical jazz guitars until a kind and generous person, Mike Peak, provided him a Gibson ES-175D in 1963. This guitar is an archtop electric acoustic with two humbucking pickups, a sunburst finish and a 16 inch laminated body type. The ES-175D created the definitive Joe Pass sound and grew to become his workhorse instrument for a lot of his career. It is heard prominently on such highly sought after recordings as 1964′s “For Django” and “Joy Spring”, 1967′s “Simplicity” and 1963′s “Jazz Concord” (with Herb Ellis).

In the seventies and 1980s, Joe Pass dabbled with a few other jazz archtop guitars, including a custom made James D’Aquisto archtop acoustic with a thinner body and a floating pick up, and an Ibanez JP-20 signature model. He later lent his title to a series of Epiphone Joe Pass Signature guitars in the 1990s. In 1992 Joe took delivery of a specially produced Gibson ES-175. According to jazz guitarist John Pisano, Pass’s longtime friend and frequent musical collaborator, that instrument has a thinner body type, a solitary humbucking pickup, a sunburst finish, gold-plated hardware, and an ebony fingerboard. Pisano additionally talked about that this is the guitar played on Joe’s final record albums, which includes his last: “A Meeting of the Masters: Roy Clark & Joe Pass Play Hank Williams”.

Like a lot of jazz guitarists, Joe Pass used the bass pickup on his ES-175 almost exclusively and adjusted the tone control to produce a lush bassy sound. Joe was supplied with a full custom medium to heavy gauged set of strings from GHS string company. Joe had an strange habit of breaking or biting his guitar picks in half to a smaller size which he thought was much more comfortable. These were initially more compact teardrop shaped picks and right after breaking them he would perform with the pointed end.

In the 1960s, Joe usually performed and recorded with various Fender tube amplifiers. He used several combo and piggyback types which included a Twin Reverb and a white tolex Bandmaster. The latter was seen and heard mated to a Fender Jaguar guitar in a telling 1962 TV performance included on the “Genius of Joe Pass” DVD. Recording session pictures reveal that an Ampeg combo amp was used for the duration of the landmark “For Django” album. By the early 1970s, Pass switched to Polytone solid-state amps and became one of the manufacturer’s leading endorsers. Fortunately for aspiring guitarists, Joe Pass published numerous jazz guitar tab books and instructional DVD programs which teach his single note improvised solos and chord melody solos as well as the pickstyle and fingerstyle guitar techniques he employed to play them.
