<p>
Most of us have a handful of celebrities that we would love to get an autograph from. Mine include all the members of the band Bon Jovi, the actor Johnny Depp, and Denver Broncos kicker Jason Elam. Yet getting celebrity autographs isn’t something you can just do because you want to. Even if you make it to a concert or filming of shows there is often very little chance of that type of interaction.
<p>
Don’t rule out it ever happening though as you may just get lucky. In many instances it comes down to being at the right place at the right time. Make sure you have a pen and paper ready too. Of course if you have a photo that is great too. If the celebrity knows they will be offering autographs they often carry photos with them as well. Some celebrities are very free with signing autographs while others find it to be a task they don’t want to be part of.
<p>
Sometimes there are events hosted where you will be sure to meet the celebrity and get an autograph. These are very exciting events but you had better plan to wait in line for a very long time. You aren’t going to be the only one interested in that particular celebrity. Some events including Country Jam makes sure that as many people get the autographs they want as possible.
<p>
Sometimes you can get one from a fan club if you join as well. Many of them have a membership fee. One of the many perks is to receive an autograph from the celebrity. Most of us will likely have to settle for a celebrity autograph from a different method though. We may have to buy one from someone else that would rather than the money than the autograph.
<p>
Some of them are extremely affordable while others are outright ridiculous. Still, some collectors and true die hard fans are willing to pay a premium price for that original signature. There is also the problem though of people forging the autographs of various celebrities. With the right tool it can be copied well enough that it can appear quite original to the naked eye.

The Inestimable Mind with Music

The Inestimable Mind with Music

Music is the manifestation of the human spirit, similar to language. Its greatest practitioners have conveyed to mankind things not possible to say in any other language. If we do not want these things to remain dead treasures, we must do our utmost to make the greatest possible number of people understand their idiom.
By: Zoltán Kodály
Music has an immense power in it. With Music one can get "amped up" or "mellowed out;”. Music can soothe, arouse, amuse, irritate, and delight us. Music for the Mind is an exclusive, auditory stimulation program using the rich and obscure Digital Music.
Digital Music offers an exclusive and powerful opportunity for promoting active listening for several reasons. All the music is improvised which gives it a free quality, while the unusual harmonic and rhythmic structures cause the brain to be attentive in a dramatic way.
With repeated listening the language of the Digital Music starts to reveal itself, yet we constantly encounter slight twists and turns that prevent the mind from placing the music into a known format.
Since auditory stimulation programs often are created to move us from a place where we are stuck, Digital music seemed particularly well suited for our purpose of encouraging active listening.

Getting Past Gatekeepers: Don’t Get Left At the Gate When Calling on Decision Makers

Getting Past Gatekeepers: Don’t Get Left At the Gate When Calling on Decision Makers

DOES IT SOMETIMES SEEM AS THOUGH DECISION MAKERS are residing in a gated community? Learn how to bypass gatekeepers (GK) — those professionals who “guard” the decision makers and often run interference for them — to get in front of decision makers (DM).

Traditionally a secretary, administrative assistant or switchboard operator blocked entry. Now there are electronic nemeses as well: voice mailboxes and blind e-mail addresses. Yet gatekeepers can be your adversaries or allies, depending on your approach. Your challenge: to be regarded as important enough to be allowed into their inner sanctum.

Here are my rules of thumb for “Passing Gate” and receiving consideration by decision makers:

<b>DO’s</b>
1. Turn GateKeepers into allies: treat them with respect, humor and compassion. Their job is tough too. They get it from both ends. They are people with their own personality, not faceless obstacles to be overcome at all costs.

2. Help decision makers look good in their manager’s eyes. Can you solve his/her problem? Let the GK know. They will &quot;carry your torch&quot; for you. presenting you as his/her solution to the DM’s problem.

3. Recognize GKs and other intermediaries as vital to your information-gathering mission. Learn more about the DM, his/her department, recent trends, internal machinations within company, from the GK. Be nice to all.

4. Calling before/after GK’s shift will get you through directly. Many DMs work long hours and feel less pressured before/after hours.

5. Gather information with every call you make. Ask appropriate questions and gather information about the decision maker, his or her schedule, what else is happening in the company at the time. Be attuned to insights into the psychological make-up of the person you are calling for. Ask when the best (and worst) time to call is? How do you pronounce your DM’s name? Does he or she prefer an informal name: &quot;T&quot; for Hortence or Condy for Condelezza.

6. Utilize multiple forms of communication to make contact. Use calls, postcards, faxes and e-mails. Ask GKs and DMs about their preferred ways of communicating.

7. The phrase “returning his/her call” upgrades your call’s importance in GK’s eyes. Use it to indicate past history.

8. When leaving repeated voice mail messages, list a different benefit you provide during each message, as a way to both qualify and distinguish yourself.

9. Keep your messages succinct: be short and sweet.

10. Stay upbeat — even if it’s the 10th unreturned message you’re leaving.

11. Be creative/funny/distinguishable so as to get consideration.

12. Humor works. Self-effacing humor and humor in solidarity with the gatekeeper help open doors.

13. When all else fails, have your Gatekeeper call theirs!

<b>DON’Ts</b>
1. Call and claim you’re family, or claim to be calling from the police, IRS or FBI.

2. Become surly, rude or sarcastic. It’s a turn-off and suggests immaturity and a lack of flexibility.

3. Avoiding filling up your recipient’s voice mailbox with long and detailed messages. It’s inconsiderate and shows bad judgment on your part. Use your short elevator speech instead.

4. Don’t make the Decision Maker wrong for not being there to answer you in person, or for not having responded yet. Believe it or not, you’re not the center of their universe!

5. Avoid using clichés and following scripts. Show some personality and spunk such that you’ll stand apart from the crowd when you call and be memorable when they decide who to call back.

Treat others like the valued individuals they are and remain confident you’re someone whose call decision makers will be glad they took. The only Gates you may not master on your first call…Bill Gates.

Wedding Ceremony Music

Wedding Ceremony Music

Music is an essential part of our daily lives, and it has the power to make your wedding ceremony a truly special occasion. Because so much depends on the music, you have to make sure you plan it carefully. The music you chose can make or break your event.

When choosing your wedding ceremony music, be sure you select music that corresponds with the formality of the wedding. Among other things, keep in mind the religious affiliation, and the length of the ceremony when planning the music. If you ceremony is held in a church, you can expect help from the church organist. Before you finalize your wedding ceremony music, there are a few important issues to consider.

3 Common Musical Categories

Classical – This genre of music conforms to an established form and appeals to critical interest and developed musical taste.

Examples of classical wedding music are:

"Canon in D" (Johann Pachelbel)
"Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin" (Richard Wagner) (also known as "Here Comes the Bride")
"Air" (from Water Music Suite), (George Frederic Handel)
"The Prince of Denmark’s March" (Trumpet Voluntary in D major) (Jeremiah Clarke) "Guitar Concerto in D Major", Largo, (Antonio Vivaldi)
"Coronation March for Czar Alexander III" (Peter I. Tchaikovsky)
"Overture" (from Royal Fireworks Music), (George Frederic Handel)
"Promenade" (from Pictures at an Exhibition), (Modest Mussorgsky)
"Sinfonia" (from Cantata No. 156), (Johann Sebastian. Bach)
"Cantata No.29" (Johann Sebastian Bach)
"Prelude and Fugue in C" (Johann Sebastian Bach)
"Toccata" (from L’Orfeo), (Claudio Monteverdi)
"Romance from String Quartet" (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
"Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major" ("Elvira Madigan") (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
"Trumpet Tune in A-Major" (David N. Johnson)
"A Midsummer Night’s Dream, incidental music, Op. 61 Wedding March" (Felix Mendelssohn)
"Winter," Largo or "Spring" Allegro (from The Four Seasons), (Antonio Vivaldi)

Sacred – Sacred music is dedicated to religious themes and symbols. It is music considered worthy of religious ceremony. Schedule a time to meet with the church organist before you begin selecting your ceremony music. Beware that some churches have very firm rules on what music is used in liturgical settings. The church organist should be well qualified to help you in selecting your wedding ceremony music.

Secular – Secular music is dedicated to non-religious subject matter. It is not necessarily forbidden during religious service, but you have to confirm with your house of worship that your chosen music is approved.

Examples of secular wedding music are:

"At Last" (Etta James)
"Only Time" (Enya)
"Come Away With Me" (Norah Jones)
"Appalachia Waltz" (Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Mark O’Connor)
"Unforgettable" (Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole)
"It’s Only Time" (Magnetic Fields)
"The Look of Love" (Dionne Warwick/Burt Bacharach)
"The Vow" (Jeremy Lubbock)
"Come What May" (Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor)
"Storybook Love" from the movie "The Princess Bride" (Willy DeVille)
"Wedding Processional" (from The Sound of Music) (Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein)
"Can’t help falling in love" (Elvis Presley)
"What A Wonderful World" (Louis Armstrong)
"When I’m Sixty-Four" (The Beatles)

Netflix Pro And Cons-Dont Run Out To Get Movies

Netflix Pro And Cons-Dont Run Out To Get Movies

In the past renting a movie would be a bit of adventure as you would have to run out to the rental store to get a movie. However times have changed and we can now rent all the movies we want from the comfort of our own home. Netflix is probably the most recognized name when it comes to at home movie rentals. But is Netflix really the best option for you?

The Netflix Pro and Cons can make or break whether you actually use their surface, but it is dependent on the individual and what you are looking for. The most obvious advance of utilizing Netflix is of course the fact that you do not even need to leave your house, you can just sign up, pick out the movies you want, and they are mailed directly to your house.

But that also leads into a fairly significant con as well. Sometimes you just want to go watch a movie, not wait a couple days. With Netflix you will not receive your movies for several days since they are mailed to you. So if you want to watch a movie that night, then you are kind of out of luck.

When talking about Netflix Pro and Cons the next pro might seem more like a con, and that is the subscription fee. It seems like a con, because it is, but it is also a pro depending on your movie watching habits. You see, if you are an avid movie fan and watch tons of movies, then this subscription fee is actually a pro. You pay one flat fee and can see all the movies you want during that month. This is very rapidly end up saving you money then if you had individually rented each movie.

But for those who only watch the occasional movie every now and then it becomes more of a con. You are paying for this service that you do not often use, and if you do want to use it you have to wait a few days before you even get your movie and it just is not worth it. So if you find yourself only watching a couple movies a month, then I would advise sticking with your local rental store.

The last big Netflix Pro and Cons is simply it’s selection. The pro aspect of this is that Netflix carries a vast library of movies and television shows, often times much greater then any local shop. This comes at a price though as Netflix will often not carry new releases and you will be forced to wait even longer to get them.

Most brick and mortar stores will have new releases the day they are released. So if you want to see a movie the day it comes out, checking out the local stores might actually be a better choice then relying on Netflix.

Overall, if you are an avid movie fan and watch plenty of them, Netflix is definitely the way to go. But if you find yourself only watching the odd movie now and then, I would advise simply sticking with the local stores.

Readers Digest

Readers Digest

There is one magazine that I have read since I was old enough to understand what is printed inside, and if I see a Readers Digest today, I have to pick it up and read it. I don’t know why this is, but I have always loved to read them, and I think it might be perhaps it is such a good slice of life, with just the right amount of humor thrown in. I read a lot of the women’s magazines my grandmother had when I was younger, but nothing could ever compare to the Readers Digest.

I haven’t had a subscription in a long time, but I still read it. A friend often gives me his old magazines, and he usually gives me the Readers Digest from the month before. When I did have a subscription, however, I was very pleased with the price. Back then, I got it for under ten dollars a year, and I think the price might be just about the same today, though I am not sure. Usually if I buy one new today, I spend the money to buy it off the news shelf.

The humor sections in Readers Digest are by far my favorites. This is probably because for the most part, these clips are things that have happened to real people, and for the most part, the quips are witty and smart. These often are the first things I read when I get a Readers Digest, and then I go back and read the articles that interest me. I have a feeling there are a lot of people that do this. They are great in the doctor’s office waiting room too, because you don’t have to stop in the middle of a long article when it is time for your appointment. If you just read the humor clips, you can easily put it down when it is time to go.

Don’t forget that Readers Digest will pay you for your own silly moments. The money they offer is not bad either. You don’t have to be a writer to submit your moments to them, you just have to be able to tell the story, and it does have to be funny. Readers Digest also accepts jokes to some degree, as long as they are funny, and are for the most part tasteful. If you have had something hilarious happen that you think many can relate to, submit to the magazine. You may see your story in print, and have a nice little check to go along with it.
