Goodbye to my old friend:Netflix

Everything is going up due to inflation, but in my opinion a service like netflix changing their members fees from $10.39 a month to $16.62 (these figures include taxes) without offering anything new is a mistake.

I have been a member for several years now but I will be saying goodbye to netflix before I get charged again next month, I don't watch enough streaming movies to justify paying that much for one rental out at a time and I get Starz already with dish network.

I don't think I will be the only one cancelling my membership, I have read several tweets on twitter of people complaining about the higher cost of netflix.

I guess I'll just be using redbox more often or go back to buying DVD movies again.

Since I won't be watching netflix it will leave me with more time to:

Until next time

Jermaine Jackson's tell all book is released

Jermaine Jackson's You are not alone:Michael through a brothers eyes
Could it be that Michael Jackson's own family is cashing in on the king of pops death?
It sure seems like it to me as Jermaine Jackson book You Are Not Alone: Michael through a brothers eyes is released just before of Michael's doctor Conrad Murray is set to go to trial for involuntary manslaughter.
The book is so shocking it tells of Jermaine's plot to kidnap his brother and smuggle him out of the USA if he had been found guilty in his 2005 child abuse case.

As for me I will remember Michael Jackson as being the #1 Artist of the 20th century

He was a kind and loving person who did so much for charity and the world.

The world is a not the same without him here.

Here is a free wallpaper you can have to remember Michael by.

To download the free wallpaper just right click the picture & save pic as ;0)
I hope you love it.
Until next time - Mark

Finding your perfect match

Free Jessica Alba Wallpaper.

Finding the right person can be a difficult thing for some people.
Some girls don't gets asked out much because they are so attractive that it intimidates men.
Some men always wind up dating a girl who cheats on them and dumps them for someone else.

To find your perfect match you must:
Have a mental image of your dream partner
Go after someone if you want them
Be willing to accept rejection
Learn to listen to your heart
Don't waste your time if it isn't working out.
Don't lower you standards, if anything raise them.
Have faith & patience
Always remember that anything worth having is worth waiting for.

Until Next Time

Resse Witherspoon recovering from getting ran over by car!

In case you haven't heard Resse Witherspoon got ran over by a car while out jogging this Wednesday.
She is already at home recovering and has been getting a lot of well wishes from her fans on twitter,and other social media sites.                                        
Here are a few tips to use while jogging!

  • Use a track whenever possible
  • Always face traffic if you must jog on a public road
  • Dress in bright colors,to make it easier to be seen.
  • Avoid using headphones,they limit your ability to hear a car
  • Keep your eyes out for cars
  • Always get at least 2 feet off the shoulder of the road

I would like to wish Resse a speedy recovery and I hope she gets better soon.
Until next time - Mark

The life of a musician

The purpose of this post is to educate people that the life of a musician isn't easy.
It is just like any other job, it has its ups and downs.

Some people stereotype musicians as being:

  • Drunks                                                           
  • Drug Addicts
  • Cheaters
  • Liars
  • Ego Manics
  • Lazy
  • Divas
  • More
I am a singer and I play guitar.
It takes at least a year to learn the basics of rhythm guitar.
You never can master the guitar,you just keep practicing and getting better.
Singing can come naturally to some people,but most have to practice until they get good enough to sing onstage.
Usually it takes a couple of hours to learn to perform a song.
Then after you get the ability to perform you must have equipment.

A basic set up for a small bar band is gonna cost you a couple of thousand dollars for P.A.
Then you figure the cost of a guitar can be several hundred dollars.

So it is expensive to be a musician.

There are a few benefits of being a musician!

You  get to do what you love
You can be your own boss
You meet some interesting people

When you get the right crowd and the right band it can be a magical experience

If you are considering becoming a musician for a profession, I would recommend that you have another trade that you can fall back on, unless you are ready to move to a large city where you will be able to find work.

I would also recommend that you learn the art of songwriting,and perform your own music.
This way you can make extra money from your writing and you can also sell your own cds.

These days you really need to treat yourself like a brand, and promote the brand.

I would recommend you hire a professional photographer to put yourself a PR kit together, which would include a cd with 4-5 songs on it with a short bio and picture.

I wish you the best if you have any questions please feel free to leave me a message or just ask it in the comments.
