My fiancée and I are planning our wedding for August next year. We have been searching high and low for a wedding photographer in our area who can deliver what we want and at a price to suit our budget. We also have in our minds an idea of where we would like our photographs to be taken but this might prove a bit difficult as it would be in a private garden of a wonderful old Victorian house close to the church in which we will say our vows. I have seen my friend’s wedding album and the photos and album were done by a photographer in the local area who has shown remarkable inventiveness and creativeness in all of the photographs. I might give him a call and if the price is right go with him.
Considered to be among the most popular tattoo designs that people get, Polynesian tattoo designs have definitely gone a long way from just being a symbol of status for New Zealand’s Maori people. In fact, the very same Maori people have a long history of using tattoos for different purposes. It can be religious, for war, to identify with one’s tribe and to acknowledge the status of a person theirs are tattoos that are heavily rooted in tradition. In fact, its common place for Maori women to have tattoos as well although not as much as the men and these tattoos were often placed on their chin or lips. Most likely, it’s for decorative purposes like what jewelry is to the modern woman.
Rapping developed both inside and outside of hip hop culture, and began with the street parties thrown in the Bronx neighborhood of New York in the 70s by Jamaican expatriate Kool Herc and others. The parties introduced dancehall and the practice of having a “Master of Ceremonies,” or MC, get up on stage with the DJ and shout encouragements to the crowd in a practice known as ‘toasting’. Over time, those shouts of encouragement became more longer and more complex and cross-pollinated with the spoken-word poetry scene to evolve into rap and also paving the way for popular rap ringtones. It’s believed that the first rapper to actually call himself an MC was Melle Mel from Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five.
I’ve been playing guitar for a large part of my life.
I began playing at age 9 or 10 and (with a few time-outs here and there) have continued to play. I’m now in my early 40s so that kind of puts a perspective on how long I’ve messed around with the instrument.
Although I can hold my own in most settings, I should really be a better guitar player than I am considering how long I’ve done it.
One of my problems has been finding a teaching method conducive to my time schedule and learning style.
I think the Learn Guitar DVD program might be the best way for me to forge ahead.
