Aaron Zimmer

 

I really enjoy “surprises”… I just checked my youtube channel and stumbled upon an amazing project: a web reality series about being a musician in NYC.   With this production, Aaron Zimmer delivers interesting and very attractive content not only for those like me that are passionate about music, but also for the billions of us that know how delightful it is to follow your true desires in absolute freedom.  I very much believe what he states at the beginning of the trailer:  “The music business doesn’t so much exists any more…”  Listen to his proposal about what it means and how most bands and singers develop and grow these days.  I completely agree with him and know and feel the joy he must be experiencing while taking absolute control of his product.

Best wishes for this reality series and his new brand record!  :)

Cris Cab

My students and I have a passion in common: MUSIC!!!! A week ago, a Wednesday -our long homeroom day :) my girls asked me to listen to some Cris Cab. I looked at them asking with my face of a lost being, who that Cris was. When I saw him on Youtube I realized I had seen him on Facebook :) as my friend. I thought he was just the boyfriend of one of my students. They told me he goes to our brother school in Miami, how cool is that? Oh yes! I listened to his original song My life (so good) and the cover he has for Black and Yellow, which I completely loved! What I appreciate the most about him is his sweetness, simplicity, passion for what he is doing and how he is putting Miami out there in a very talented way that all of us can enjoy. His videos are so well done and all around the advertisement of his music so well organized and focused, it is hard to believe his still going to school as any other student. It is evident this guy wants it all and he gets it every time he sings. Congrats, Cris! :)

Here are two of his videos.

Enjoy, delicious people!

Oxycise!

Aubrey Lee

Almost ten years ago a co-worker in Cincinnati talked to me about a book he had borrowed from the library.  I do not remember the title but I have never forgotten what it was about.  I still even have some photocopies he made for me.  :)  Oh, Randy!! Good pal!  The book suggested a technique for losing weight,  a non traditional one and so simple it almost sound “silly”.    Oxycise is all about breathing in and out as your only workout to lose weight.  It started with Jill Johnson, maybe 30 years ago and now her daughter, Aubrey Lee is doing the same in a so renovated and appreciated way.  I gave it a try back then and I saw it working.

Recently, after few months of really been enthusiastic about losing some weight so I can fit in my current clothes :) I got so tired of the routine and here I am desiring again feeling the wonder of the oxygen in my body, it is so easy and satisfying setting some time aside to focus on only breathing without scoring any results I will give a try again.  We never get it wrong because we never get it done, so there is so much to gain.  We never stop desiring, how awesome is that??!!!  :)  And the best thing of all is that I know it works because there is nothing more powerful than focus/attention to what you want combined with oxygen.

So enjoy the material and give it a try; it feels awesome!!

Love you, delicious people!

Chris August

Chris August

Well, it has happened once more.  Another singular singer and songwriter that conquers me!  :)  Chris August is a Christian singer with an amazing talent for songwriting and dynamic musical arrangements.  All his lyrics have their own very well defined personality and stand by themselves without effort.  I just bought his most recent album and will share here my favorite ones.  How did I attracted him?  Oh, yes, I was checking a section on Itunes I had forgotten about: .69 songs.  And thank God I decided listening to him.  People that know me know that I am a very optimistic person, a non dogmatic one, a free thinker that is.  They also know I am a very spiritual person and that is exactly why I can enjoy so many different music and singers.  Let him get to you. You will like him so much!  :)

My favorite songs from “No far Away”:

Loving you is Easy

Starry Night

I am going to sing

Enjoy the music, delicious!

The Self Worth Cost of *Self Deprecating* Humor/Upfromsplat

There are times when I will find/attract people that teaches me so much.  This lady is so simple and so confident that no matter what she is talking about I will stop and listen to her.  And better yet, I will laugh a lot :)  This time she is talking about something that really makes people think.  I have never felt comfortable with the “self deprecating” humor so it is nice to see how others can come up with a way of putting it out there to reflect about.

I want you to enjoy Ande Waggener in this video and I will come back in a minute with one of my favorite of hers. :)  You can visit her website and enjoy her blog and videos: Up from Splat
