Finding Peace and Tranquility With An Ambient Masterpiece
Sound and music can have a profound effect on our brains and our bodies. Physiologically, sound can be used to evoke feelings of nausea, headaches and dizziness, as is the case with low-frequency sound below 20Hz, known as infrasonic sound. An estimated 1 out of 50,000 people suffer from a condition known as hyperacusis, whereby a heightened sensitivity to even normal environmental sounds can cause pain and anxiety.
Origin Of Rap Music
How Rap Evolved From Poetry " Damn, that ain't music. It's just fast talking" - Sharon, My Mom As far back as I can remember I always was interested in creation. Imagination. Words and describing my environment. I had a sublime connection to expression. In the Arts & Entertainment Macroverse, there is always a connection to another artform that is familiar enough to create genres & sub genres. When talking about the origins of Hip Hop and it's sub genre- Rap... it's only a collection of the various rhyming styles of POETRY. It has been this way before hip hop and before it was even put to music. You can RAP even WITHOUT the presence of MUSIC. In a way, it was a “Poor Man's Poetry.” You didn’t have to know all of the techniques and styles of poetry like similes, metaphors, alliteration, or iambic pentameter to rap. All you had to do was be able to make a rhyme. Even if it is only a simple rhyme or the same kind of rhyme repeated over and over, it was good enough to be considered rap. Over time, more intricate types of rhyming styles were acquired by rappers as it progressed as a new trend.
Creators Should Stop Branding Themselves as Sex Toys
Jeff Bezos has inspired me as a marketer and digital creator with his mind-blowing inspirational insights. I have the following on my desktop wallpaper: “Your brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room.”
The Iron Waif: Marianne Faithfull
She’s probably best remembered as Mick Jagger’s 1960s girlfriend. Or the “girl wrapped in the fur rug” at the 1967 house party when the Rolling Stones were famously busted for drugs. Or the ethereal blonde beauty who was a muse to the best rock and roll band in the world when they were at their peak. But Marianne Faithfull is far more than an ex-concubine to a classic rock god. She’s an accomplished singer, songwriter, actress, and author in her own right.

The Music Behind The Movement
Music has an unspoken power over the human spirit. It gives flavor, touch, smell, and color to our lives—a biological symphony of chemistry and communicating synapses that result in a moving experience. It drives our motivations, influences our emotions, and describes the indescribable. It is woven into the very fabric of humanity. Music is what Aldous Huxley called "the blessedness that is at the heart of things." Whitman described it as "the profoundest expression of nature."

The Devil Has All The Best Tunes
I am actually writing , well typing and not dictating, this draft article on my Google Pixel 2XL phone. Dictating gives me too much editing and fixing, but this is the first article I have done completely on the phone and am surprised that it is basically rather good. Not as convenient as a computer keyboard , but more than adequate and very fit for purpose.
- Second Place in Iconic Duo Challenge
The use of language is so particular and phenomenal. We give words to concepts that are nothing but a construct of what goes on inside our heads. We applaud and reward the ones who do it well. These are the people who understand how to use the sounds coming out of their mouths as more than a means of communication. These people give us a new thought process; it becomes guerrilla warfare in your head because what you have accepted as normal is now being challenged. We either accept it or we don't. Either way, we appreciate these people who seem to get the idea of language.
As a kid, I always remember having a hard time trying to start a sentence. The problem wasn’t that I didn’t have anything to say, it was actually quite the contrary.
