I’ve said it before I’ll say it again, Music can save you life.”  It might not rescue you from a burning building or keep you warm when your freezing but it can lift your spirits up when your down. It can transport you to a place you can call home and be a refuge from pain. It motivates  you to do amazing things that you didn’t think was possible. Most importantly, it is the fast way to connect to our emotions and unlock what we are feeling at that exact moment. Whether it be when we’re fucking pissed off and want to destroy everything or we’re so sad that we want to eat a gallon of ice cream.   Music can put us in place of ZEN.

Our Moment of ZenWar Pigs by Black Sabbath

BlackSabbath005

Just in case if you been living under a rock, Black Sabbath are an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler, singer Ozzy Osbourne, and drummer Bill Ward. The band has since experienced multiple line-up changes, with Tony Iommi the only constant presence in the band through the years. Originally formed in 1968 as a heavy blues rock band named Earth, the band began incorporating occult themes with horror-inspired lyrics and tuned-down guitars. Despite an association with occult and horror themes, Black Sabbath also composed songs dealing with social instability, political corruption, the dangers of drug abuse and apocalyptic prophecies of the horrors of war.

I just recently watched the 300: Rise of an Empire and this song came on and it is the perfect song for war. It is the perfect battle cry just before you jump into the fray. Music can calm and relax you but it can also pump you up and bring you energy at the same time. When this song came on, I wanted to be one of the Spartans and just pick up a sword and start fighting!

CHECK OUT REVIEW FOR 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE 

I went on Youtube just to see the original version of this song by Black Sabbath and found this awesome performance by them in the 1970s. To see Ozzy rock out in his prime is amazing. The band kills the song and their performance gives us a reason why we should be a fan of Black Sabbath. Let me stop fucking talking.  Put on those running shoes or boxing gloves and check this great song and video from Black Sabbath playing War Pigs.

Portuguese artist Alexandre Farto (1987) has been interacting visually with the urban environment

under the name of Vhils since his days as a prolific graffiti writer in the early 2000s.

His groundbreaking carving technique – which forms the basis of the Scratching the Surface series

and was first presented to the public at the VSP group show in Lisbon in 2007 and at the Cans Festival

in London in 2008 –, has been hailed as one of the most compelling approaches to art created in the

street in the last decade.

The Dragon’s Philosophy – The Intercepting Fist

Jeet Kune Do (JKD) literally translated from Chinese means “way of the intercepting fist”. It reflects Bruce Lee’s concepts, philosophy and training methods with regards to martial arts . Bruce Lee who started his base with Wing Chun Kung Fu eventually rejected the notion of sticking to one art and began exploring various other martial arts styles including boxing, judo, wrestling, savate and fencing . Bruce Lee disposed with ideals within a style adopting a flexible approach to seek what works best. He christened his martial art as Jeet Kune Do.
