Juggalo Paint And More Examining The Icp In-concert Experience

  • Posted on March 20, 2018 at 11:08 am

If youre a fan of underground hip hop, theres no doubt youve been to at least a few underground hip hop concerts. How do underground hip hop concerts differ from mainstream hip hop concerts? Well for one, they usually take place in a much smaller setting, because underground usually connotes music that is less appealing to the masses, hence why less people would show up to an underground hip hop show than mainstream arena concert.

Furthermore, the fans at underground hip hop concerts typically have a stronger devotion to the music, and you can expect there to be a lot more energy in tight, crowded quarters. But underground hip hop concerts have nothing on the experience that is ICP in concert.

Seeing ICP in concert almost always happens more than once, because after you see ICP in concert once you know you want to be there again as soon as possible. From Faygo showers (just what it sounds like) and Juggalo paint to thousands of Juggalos and badass beats, seeing ICP in concert really blows traditional underground hip hop shows out of the water.

This phenomenon takes root in the fact that, Juggalo paint or not, Juggalos and Juggalettes are completely obsessed with the Insane Clown Posse, especially when they get to see ICP in concert. Theres so much love for ICPs in-concert antics that Juggalos paint their faces to imitate the Juggalo paint on the faces of ICP members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.

Decorating your face with Juggalo paint is pretty easy in fact, and should be learned by any underground hip hop fan looking to see ICP in concert some day. For an accurate Juggalo paint job, all you need is black and white oil-based face paint. Then have a friend trace the Juggalo face paint outline on your face. If you like it, fill it in!

There are plenty of Juggalo designs to choose from, but as long as the Juggalo paint design you choose resembles some sort of maniacal clown youll be welcomed by fellow Juggalos when you see ICP in concert.

Other than Juggalo paint, what else goes down when you see ICP in concert? As briefly mentioned earlier, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope often douse the crowd with orange Detroit Soda pop Faygo. It has become such an inextricable part of Juggalo culture that now Juggalos will do it to themselves. At how many other underground hip hop concerts would this be an acceptable thing to do?

Then of course is the music. You can expect arena-wide sing-a-longs, greatest hits being played, fun storytelling from J and Dope, mosh pits, and lots of runny, sweaty Juggalo paint. Seeing how an ICP concert is a once in a lifetime experience, what are you waiting for?

The Perfect Instrument For Kids

  • Posted on March 19, 2018 at 4:14 pm

Music is the most essential part of a child’s education. Early introduction to music will cherish a life long enjoyment of singing, playing, and listening. Ukuleles for kids are the perfect instruments because of the following reasons.

Perfect size: The ukulele fits in the child’s hands. It’s exactly proportionate to a child. This will make feel that the instrument is theirs.

Easy to learn: Any child who is learning the violin knows the anxiety of practice time. It takes several months for a child to produce pleasant sounding tunes. This can be rather discouraging for the child and the parent. On the other hand, the ukulele, is much easier for the beginners. Most of the children can strum a chord or two within a few minutes.

Sing and Play at the same time: Being adults, many of us are ashamed of singing and become nervous. Children never have such a problem and they always love to sing. If you teach them to play a wind instrument, it will prevent them to sing. Even piano is too loud and can overwhelm the child’s voice. If you give a child a ukulele, they will start strumming and singing before you come to know.

A child can relate to it: Ukuleles for kids look like a mini-guitar. Kids tend to imitate their favorite stars and instantly take to the ukulele. Kids will be familiar with the ukulele from the cartoons they watch on television. As soon, you give your kids a ukulele, they will be striking and strumming like a rock-star.

Easily transferable skills: Though many people become ukulele players for the whole life, it’s quite obvious that your child will want to play other instruments. Skills that you gain by playing the ukulele can be transferred smoothly to the other stringed instruments, like the violin and guitar.

Cheap: Children is never careful with their instrument. You must not worry about a ukulele. They are cheap to replace and yet they are very hardy instruments.

Ukulele is fun: It’s very rare that the child playing an ukulele and the audience is not enjoying it. There is something in the ukulele that brings instant joy to the everyone around. Most children can pick up the basic chords in the first lesson. From there, they will eventually learn how to play the entire songs or the simple strum patterns. Ukuleles for kids is an opportunity to learn the fundamental concepts of music. These concepts will help a child in advance on the ukulele or any other instrument if she or he chooses to switch later.

Will Insane Clown Posse Concerts Still Be Energetic In 2012

  • Posted on March 15, 2018 at 3:54 pm

In a word, yes, but there may be an ounce of truth to their assertion that the Psychopathic Records horror rap veterans arent as lively on stage as they once were. Thats not to say that that Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are coming out on stage in wheel chairs, but for the astute ICP ticket buyer and Insane Clown Posse concert observer, there is a slightly noticeable difference in the live ICP of 1994 and the ICP of 2012.

ICP Tickets still sell like hotcakes, Insane Clown Posse concerts are still the best time youll have going to any Psychopathic Records artist concert. The vast majority of Insane Clown Posse concerts were sold out in 2011, most Juggalos more than happy to fork over the dollars required for Psychopathic Records artists like ICPs tickets these days (the average concert ticket for any musical group has increased exponentially since the early 90s, this trend is not isolated to ICP tickets).

As videos of Insane Clown Posse concerts on YouTube will demonstrate, those who buy ICP tickets or tickets to any Psychopathic Records artist concert in 2012 are still in for a treatthe songs are still delivered impeccably, the crowd taunting still hostile, and the on-stage props/sideshows still present. However, the jarring dance movements and swag evident on stage at Insane Clown Posse concerts in years past has now given way to softer choreography that seems less inspired. Also, buying an ICP ticket in 2011 doesnt guarantee a Faygo shower like it once did.

However, 2011 was not a year in which ICP tickets were sold for the purpose of promoting a new album. 2012 will differ in that sense, as the guys will be releasing Mighty Death Pop!, their first album in 3 years through Psychopathic Records (the label they own), and any Insane Clown Posse tour dates in support thereof are bound to me the duos most energetic in years. Buying an ICP ticket this year would be a smart move, as it will probably be the last time an Insane Clown Posse concert contains the spirit of a new release in the next 4 years or so.

Of course there will be music released from the younger artists on Psychopathic Records, and maybe even some from those artists who are being groomed in the Psychopathic Records subsidiary, Hatchet House, but we all know that Insane Clown Posse concerts are the cream of this crop.

There are no ICP tickets for the Mighty Death Pop! tour available yet, but thats because the supporting Psychopathic Records artists and dates havent even been announced yet. The best way to make sure you see this new material performed live by Insane Clown Posse in concert, then make your way to 2012s Gathering of the Juggalos where youll not only see that, but also performance by numerous other Psychopathic Records artists.

Puppet Master Box Set – The Best Horror Films And Where To Buy Them

  • Posted on March 15, 2018 at 2:56 pm

The year 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of the first Subspecies film. To celebrate the occasion, movie studio Wizard Entertainment has released the Subspecies Blu Ray 20th Anniversary Edition. This marks the first time that this film has been released on this media type. There has been great excitement in the films fan community about the Subspecies Blu Ray 20th Anniversary Edition release. The film is in the horror genre and stars Angus Scrimm, whom many cult horror movie buffs know from the Phantasm horror series. The basic premise of this horror movie is that there are students studying Romanian culture and they befriend a vampire, Stefan, who is in a power fight with his brother, Radu. Stefan falls in love with one of the students, but is forced to turn her into a vampire because Radu bites her and she is going to turn evil. In the end, Radu is killed.

You may be wondering where you can find the Subspecies Blu Ray for sale. There are many places where you can find it. For instance, you can find it on websites like Amazon and DeepDiscount. You can buy the Subspecies Blu Ray brand new for lower prices on these types of websites. However, if you do not mind buying the film used, you can always go to eBay or even use Amazons Marketplace to find used copies. You can find used copies in great condition for at least 50% off the price of a new one. That is not a bad deal at all.

Another gem for the horror movie buff is the Puppet Master series. In 2009, Wizard Entertainment released the Puppet Master Box Set to the market. These are horror films that have puppets as the main villains. Included in the Puppet Master Box Set were the films:

Puppet Master
Puppet Master II
Puppet Master III
Puppet Master 4
Puppet Master 5
Curse of the Puppet Master
Retro Puppet Master
And a 45 film trailer reel

A later release would include more films from this horror series, but this boxed set is highly sought after by fans of the film series.

There are really just two places where you can find the Puppet Master Box Set and that is on Amazon or on eBay. As previously mentioned, there was a later release with more films from the series added, so this set is not being produced any longer. Because there are so many movies included, the Puppet Master Box Set can run anywhere from $20 used to well over $60 brand new. Still it is not a bad price to pay for all of those wonderful horror films.

Harmony between both partners in a relationship is the ideal yet often fights happen. Fighting, anger , and any kind of negative emotions are destructive yet we have to be realistic and understand that we are all doing our best here upon the earth plane and nobody is perfect. We can all improve and asking for forgiveness, and saying sorry, after any kind of verbal battle is a good sign. Stress is bad for health and it is especially bad for relationship health. We live in enough stressful time who needs more of the stuff?

Anything you can do to encourage peace and harmony between you and your partner should be encouraged. Harmony creates a positive energy. It is the negative emotions of jealousy , hate, and talking down to people that develop bad habits and it is best to avoid these demeaning acts. Caring and empathy is what a relationship needs to flower and gives you the fruit of happiness.

You both need to grow as soul mates and maintain the respect you had for each other same as the time when you both started the relationship. Maybe a romantic weekend away is a good idea. When each one of you begins to put some positive energy into the other partner it is here where romance begins to flourish. A calm environment , with romantic surroundings, might be just what you need. Giving each other time, when you do not have one eye on the clock, is one of the best ways of honoring each other. It is a sign of respect and caring. Mutual empathy flows between both of you and something good is created in the relationship.

A psychic reading shows the ideal romance is when both partners are putting equal energy into the relationship. Plus it is a good sing when you encourage your partner to grow and develop and they do the same for you. Mutual caring and sharing. A real soul mate understand your needs. You get a kick from providing some of their needs in return. If the relationship is balanced it turns out well. Just be sure there are no forms of psychic vampirism taking place. Psychic vampires, in a relationship of romance or even as friends , can only drain your energy.

The Most Popular Horror Films of All Times

  • Posted on March 13, 2018 at 12:55 pm

Horror films are designed to frighten and panic, to invoke our hidden worst fears, often in a terrifying, shocking finale. The earliest horror films were Gothic in style that means that they were usually set in spooky old mansions, castles, dark and shadowy locales.

The main character of these films were the “unknown”, human, supernatural creatures like vampires, devils, ghosts, monsters, demons, evil spirits, werewolves to the unseen presence of evil. The first horror movie, was only about two minutes long created by the French filmmaker Georges Melies “The Devils Castle”(Le Manoir du Diable)(1896) which contained some elements of later vampire films.

The most influential of the early films was “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”(Das Kabinet des Doktor Cligari)(1919) the Germanys silent expressionistic landmark classic. IN the early 1900s the German film Der Golem was the first horror-themed film which achieved great success. In the early 1930s Universal Studios created a modern film genre and brought to the screen the successful movies like “Dracula”, “Frankenstein” and “The Mummy”.

In the late 50s horror movies became a lot gorier as the technical side of cinematography became cheaper. Early 60s saw the release of two films wich close the gap between the subject and the viewer. One was “Peeping Tom” and the other was “Psycho”, both films rather use human monsters rather than supernatural ones to scare the audience.

“The Exorcist” (1973) broke all records for a horror film, after that in 1975 “Jaws” became the highest grossing film ever. Horror movies turned to self-mocking irony and downright parody in the 1990s when the teenagers in “Scream” often made a reference to the history of horror movies.

There is argument that horror films are socially and morally irresponsible, and they even influence to some people to imitate the brutal methods of the killers portrayed on the screen.

Anyway horror films have the opposite effect on normal people sick minds will commit crimes anyway. When we watch horror films we encounter our secret fears, share them with other viewers and eliminate the terror by facing with it.

But if you are not a movie lover or maybe you are too scared to watch a horror movie then maybe I have the right solution for you. Why do not you turn your computer on and look for some scary games on line?

Trust me you will be amazed by what you will found. There are a lots of games from creepy, horror, scary to those which are not too much scary. So choose the right one for you and enjoy playing it.

Or if you are a film lover than go ahead and take a troll through these favorite films of all time. If happens to you to hear sounds like whispering, or creepy sounds, just pay no attention to it. Its probably just the wind.

Saxophonist A Must Have For Jazz Concert

  • Posted on March 13, 2018 at 8:01 am

Do you love jazz music and are planning to organize a jazz concert? Then you must hire a professional saxophonist. An expert saxophonist not merely play the saxophone but give meaning to the jazz music and if one say that saxophone is the soul of jazz music then there would be nothing wrong in it. Without a saxophonist, jazz music will not only become meaningless but it cannot even start as opening of every jazz concert is done by a saxophonist. No wonder they are in huge demand these days and charging a hefty amount for a single concert. But there is a saying that practice makes a men perfect and to become an expert and professional saxophonist one may need years of practice.

Thus be careful when you are hiring a saxophonist as these days there is a saxophonist in every nook and corner. In fact many young saxophonist are there in the market who had just passed out from a music school and think that they have become a professional saxophonist and people also hire them, thinking it would cost them little. But if you have good taste in music and understand the jazz music then you will never hire such saxophonist. Above all, playing a music instrument between your friends and family and giving a live performance are totally two different things. Entertaining a live audience is not an easy job, you have to catch the nerve of your audience and only an expert can do that.

Thus, you should hire a saxophonist who is versatile, have years of experience and can offer a wide variety of entertainment like soft jazz, jazz duo, jazz trio, or a full rhythm section with vocals and should also be able to play different types of jazz like Straight ahead jazz, Smooth jazz, R & B, Funk, Top 40, Soul, Pop and gospel. It would be much preferable to lookout for someone who has played saxophone on various types of occasion like corporate events, engagements, VIP parties, weddings etc. He should be able to perform according to the theme of the occasion as every occasion needs a different treatment. Basically he should not only be a saxophonist but a performer who can perform in front of every type of audience.

In fact it would be much better if the saxophonist have good amount of experience and have worked with some renowned artist of the industry like Antoine Knight who had performed with renowned artists like Jennifer Holiday, and Yolanda Adams.
