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 ZEN: Pentatonix – Michael Jackson Tribute

Pentatonix-Michael-Jackson-750x466-700x434

Pentatonix, the five-piece a cappella group that first drew television audiences during its Season 3 win on NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” has again looked toward evolution to continue its success.

Monday, Pentatonix released the latest in its “Evolution of” cover series, this time honoring the musical history of the late pop megastar Michael Jackson. The five-minute medley transitions from MJ’s younger years with the Jackson Five – “I Want You Back” and “ABC” – through “Billie Jean,” “Thriller” and “Bad,” before ending with the 1995 hit “You Are Not Alone.”

 WHY DO WE FALL?

INSPIRATIONAL STORIES OF EPIC FAILURES

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.”ALFRED

Failed in business

Sweetheart died

Had nervous breakdown

Sounds like a LOSER right. Who was it?

Abraham Lincoln our 16th President of the United States. As you can see Mr. Lincoln didn’t let his many, many failures get him down. If it did, he wouldn’t been president and had a great part of ending slavery. This article will show many stories just like this of people failing miserably, time in and time out but they didn’t give up on themselves. It’s all about believing in yourself, especially when the chips are down and everything around you is falling apart. When your friends and family don’t see your vision or you can’t see the horizon down the valley of success. These people didn’t know the word “no”, but they knew aboutdetermination, hard work, bravery and most importantly they had the heart of a Lion.

I believe you are where you are in life not because of luck, your family, or your environment. You are where you are because this where you put yourself. You can’t blame it on anyone else, but yourself because you put yourself here. But keep your head up because there is light at the end of the tunnel. These highly successful people in this article were in the same place you are right now. Nobody believed in them, they heard “no” a bunch of times but that didn’t deter them to succeed. Once again, if no one believes you, always remember to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

Thomas Edison

ThomasEdison

The father of electricity, Mr. Edison, failed about 999 times to invent the lamp before he had success in doing it on the 1000th attempt. When people asked him how did you manage to keep going even though you were failing all the time he replied, “each time it didn’t work I used to say I discovered a new way how to not invent the lamp.”

Thomas Edison success story should make you conclude that failure should never stop you even if it occurred more than once.

Albert Eistein

Launched Facebook in 2004 at the age of 19, literally changing the way people communicate. Facebook and Zuckerberg’s name are always at the center of much controversy, yet it cannot be denied that Mark Zuckerberg had a radically new idea and did not shy away from investing time and effort in it, at a time when he couldn’t have possibly known if it would work.

By 2007, Facebook had made Mark Zuckerberg a billionaire and nowadays he is believed to own about $80 billion today.

Bill Gates

Bill Gates the founder of Microsoft is one of the most inspirational business leaders living these days but do you know that his idea of creating a computer that has a graphical interface and a mouse was rejected when he first submitted it to another company? Some people even say that the papers of the project were thrown in his face!! Now he became Bill Gates!!

Vincent Van Gogh

Halle Berry

Halle Berry Workout and Diet 3

When she first moved to Chicago to become an actress, Berry ran out of money and her mother decided the best thing would not be to send her daughter money.

During these struggling times, the actress admits to staying in a homeless shelter.

“It taught me how to take care of myself and that I could live through any situation, even if it meant going to a shelter for a small stint, or living within my means, which were meager. I became a person who knows that I will always make my own way.”

Michael Jordan

He’s famous for being cut from his high school basketball team. He turned out to be the greatest basketball player but never let failure deter him.

Jewel

-Jewel-jewel-33035386-1024-768

Before becoming the multi-platinum singer Jewel, she lived on the streets after losing her job.

“I ended up homeless because my boss propositioned me and when I wouldn’t sleep with him he didn’t give me my paycheck,” she said.

“I got kicked out of where I was living and my rent was due that next day.

“I thought ‘Well, I’ll live in my car for a minute… get back on my feet,’ but I had bad kidneys and I never could hold down another job because I got sick so often. I didn’t have insurance and ended up almost dying in the parking lot of an emergency room because they wouldn’t admit me because I didn’t have insurance.

“I ended up homeless for about a month and I went back to singing.”

The Beatles

the-beatles

They were rejected by many record labels. In a famous rejection letter  the label said, “”guitar groups are on the way out” and “the Beatles have no future in show business”.

After that the Beatles signed with EMI, brought Beatlemania to the United States, and became the greatest band in history.

Oprah

oprah

One of the inspirational stories that really motivated me the first time I read about it was the success story of Oprah. Oprah is one of the most popular TV icons nowadays and she is also one of the richest women on our planet but this is not how her story began. Do you know that Oprah was fired from her job and was told that she was not fit for TV earlier in her life?

Oprah spent the first six years of her life living with her grandmother wearing dresses made out of potato sacks. After being molested by two members of her family and a family friend, she ran away from home at age 13. At 14, her newborn child died shortly after he was born. She went back to live with her mother, but it wasn’t until her mother sent her to live with her father that she turned her life around.

She got a full scholarship to college, won a beauty pageant —where she was discovered by a radio station — and the rest is history. The Oprah name became an empire, and according to Forbes she is worth billions.

Theodor Seuss Giesel

dr-seuss

Dr. Seuss gave us Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. Books every child reads. At first many didn’t think he would succeed. 27 different publishers rejected Dr. Seuss’s first book To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.

Colonel Sanders

colonel-sanders

The founder of KFC. He started his dream at 65 years old! He got a social security check for only $105 and was mad. Instead of complaining he did something about it.

He thought restaurant owners would love his fried chicken recipe, use it, sales would increase, and he’d get a percentage of it. He drove around the country knocking on doors, sleeping in his car, wearing his white suit.

Stephen King

Stephen King 126

His first book Carrie was rejected 30 times and he threw it in the trash. His wife retrieved it out of the trash and encouraged him to resubmit it. The rest is history. He has sold more than 350 million copies of his books.

Steven Spielberg

steven_spielberg.jpgw576h403

He applied and was denied two times to the prestigious University of Southern California film school. Instead he went to Cal State University in Long Beach. The rest is history…

J.K. Rowling

J-K-Rowling

Twelve publishers rejected the manuscript! A year later she was given the green light by Barry Cunningham from Bloomsbury, who agreed to publish the book but insisted she get a day job cause there was no money in children’s books.

In the early 1990s, Rowling had just gotten divorced and was living on welfare with a dependent child. She completed most of the first “Harry Potter” book in cafes, as walking around with her daughter, Jessica, was the best way to get her to sleep.

The “Harry Potter” franchise has become a worldwide success and J.K. Rowling is now worth an estimated $1 billion dollars.

Fu’s Politically Incorrect Review – Jurassic World (Spoiler Alert: Everyone Dies!!!)

3

image

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus rex. When the massive creature escapes, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinos to run amok. Now, it’s up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young brothers and the rest of the tourists from an all-out, prehistoric assault.

First off, it never gets old seeing dinosaurs on the silver screen. It’s just brings me back when I was 12 years old but just like the first film I wanted every single dinosaur to kill everyone on the island. Because let’s face we’ve been on top the evolution chain for a relatively long time and we still don’t act any better than the animals we eat or control. Just like a high school party that you got invited to by one of your friends, someone people are cool and the rest of the people at the party are fucking assholes that need to be eaten by a T-Rex.

That’s what happens at this party. People are having a good time then someone had to make a genetically modified organisms into a dinosaur. Yes, those three evil letters (GMO), you’ve been taught to stay away from in the supermarkets. Basically, this Indominus Rex aka asshole, decided to ruin the party. Apparently, the mad scientists decided to create a killing machine that not only kills for food but also kills for fun, so she’s a giant bitch.

But I would be pissed off as well, if I was captive in isolation for most my life. Plus, if my diet consisted of a whole cow everyday, I would be agitated as well craving for some greens or at least a better menu selection. So, like all smart and highly dangerous animals, especially the ones who’s been spliced by the baddest predators, you would think it would be guarded by a team of former military types, which it isn’t of course. It’s guarded by one fat security dude eating a four course meal while on duty. So, naturally it easily out wits Paul Blart the mall cop and runs amok on the park killing humans (Yay!), but also killing dinosaurs (Boo!)

In that sad scene when the GMO dinosaur injures the Brontosaurus, leaving it to slowly die with Star Lord and Bryce Dallas Howard, I’ve never wanted anybody to die as badly as I did to see the Brontosaurs making one last attempt to eat off Bryce Dallas’s ridiculous BOB haircut. But I understand it is a herbivore and it has better taste. Bryce finally realized after numerous people had died along with dinosaurs and her own nephews’ lives were at risk that maybe we shouldn’t have created this killing machine and maybe we should stop it.

But just like how you have a feeling that you’ve stayed too long at party when you know it’s already over, the Indominus Rex has stopped the park’s security forces feeble attempt to stop it, causing havoc at the park which eventually takes control of the park. In one last pathic attempt, the humans decide to use Raptors that Chris Pratt has trained in order to hunt another killer dinosaur, but of course it back fires because the genetically modified dinosaur is fluent in English, Spanish, Rapanese and Real Talk.

And Real Talk. The modified dinosaur told the other Raptors, “Yo, fuck these humans.” The human’s plan backfires again as the Raptors start hunting and killing the humans. But finally, someone decides to throw out Indominus Rex out of the party because she was getting way too fucked up. But the humans don’t come to the rescue as the dinosaurs do come out to help the humans. Which brings me to my point again that animals are better than humans. This movie was really enjoyable and I highly recommend it.

One final note, if they decided to keep making modified dinosaurs, I think it would be a lot like the 90’s tv show Dinosaurs, which follows the life of a family of dinosaurs, living in a modern world. They have TVs, fridges, etc. The only humans around are cavemen, who are viewed as pets and wild animals.

Fu’s Observations:

– I know I shitted on Paul Blart but I’ve watched both movies. Highly enjoyable.
– Did Bryce Dallas Howard have that haircut to make her be hated more because it worked.
– So, glad that the black guy didn’t die in which I still think Samuel Jackson is still alive. (We just saw a black severed arm, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it was his arm, you racists.)
– How come that snooty evil Asian scientist didn’t die?
– Can you genetically modify a racists dinosaur?
– Are there gay or bisexual dinosaurs? That new dinosaur had to be transgendered. I would believe the LGBT community would get behind it.
– Those kids parents definitely still divorced. One of those Pterodactyls definitely left the island and now is a legal immigrant in Texas, working as an insurance agent.
– You have no idea where Costa Rica is on a map. You just know its down there somewhere.

Trust your Spidey Senses!!! – Ways to better listen to your Intuition

1

husky_spider_sense_by_loopywolf-d5fcqy5

“There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence, combined with solid research efforts, that suggests intuition is a critical aspect of how we humans interact with our environment and how, ultimately, we make many of our decisions,” said Ivy Estabrooke of the Office of Naval Research, who is investigating the power of intuition which has helped troops make important and quick decisions during combat.

Whether it’s deciding which job to take, which direction to turn when you’re lost, or how to handle a conflict in your family, intuition sometimes knows better than the rational mind. The problem is that many of us have buried that little voice so deeply within, we have a hard time hearing or feeling where it is guiding us.

The good news is that your intuition is still there, you merely have to learn to hear it again.

THE INTUITIVE WAY: THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO INCREASING YOUR AWARENESS

TO BETTER LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION, TRY:

  1. Meditation:  Spend time in silence, simply listening.

  2. Commune with nature:  Aim to get at least sometime outside every single day.

  3. Creativity:  Tap into your internal artist by drawing, writing, painting, or making music.
  4.  Learn to listen:  In general, listen to friends, families, silence, and yourself.
  5.  Be body conscious:  Learn to appreciate the little signs and signals from your body, when it tells you it’s tired, joyful, in need of love, or getting sick.
  6.  Let go:  Warm up to the idea that you don’t have to control everything. Life is going to happen whether you overthink it or not. Relax.

  7. Stay positive:  A 2013 study in the journal Psychological Science found that being in a good mood boosted participant’s abilities to make intuitive calls in a word game. So smile!

Working on becoming more intuitive requires you to adopt healthier habits and a healthier mindset. These are things that are good for your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing, no matter your end goal. And if cultivated regularly, they could lend themselves to better decision making and more happiness overall.
