Andrew WK – The Past Ten Years

Attention all party fans. Officially the worlds most fun and positive man is returning to the UK to tour for the first time since 2003 and will be playing his massive banger of a debut album I Get Wet in its entirety. I’ve got to admit I hope he doesn’t just play that ‘cos I Get Wet is only 35 minutes long and that would be a pretty bent headline slot, but anyway whatever happens some unbridled awesomeness is clearly on the cards.

This is amazing news for a number of hard rocking reasons, but mainly because Andrew WK is batshit mental and the last decade has seen him embark in a series of extra-ordinary antics that will pickle your brain. Essentially Mario Balotelli is to football what Andrew WK is to music.

Raised in Michigan, Andrew started learning classical piano aged four before studying jazz keyboard at some mad hippy school (the schools mascot was a shitting rainbow zebra) and playing in millions of bands with fucking terrible names such as: Music Band, Stormy Rodent, Mr Velocity Hopkins and The Malt Lickers. He also wrote a song about a girl he fancied at school that was so creepy he got a restraining order from da rozzers.

Clearly troubled by bad band names he formed Andrew WK, named after himself, and briefly they got massive doing their party thing all over the world with I Get Wet. Follow up album The Wolf bombed a bit, but AWK was still being absolutely boss. After breaking his foot on stage in 2004 he continued the tour, looking generally crazed as he thrashed around in a wheelchair.

Things then got really odd as he stopped making music for a while, concentrating on being a self help motivational speaker and instead giving speeches with an emphasis on the power of party at universities all over the place including academic big guns like Yale and New York. Rumours then began to circulate that he didn’t exist, that he was several different people warped by plastic surgery over time and that he was a record company’s creation.

These claims were accentuated by the fact that he released two dangerously weird albums in Japan only (fucking hipster) and an album consisting of ‘spontaneous solo piano improvisations’ inspired by his favourite car, called 55 CADILLAC. Kerrang Magazine likened it to Rachmaninoff as played by a fucking lunatic. And not in a good way, in a spastically terrible way. As well as all this he wrote a Kit Kat theme tune used in adverts worldwide, produced reggae legend, Lee Scratch Perry’s Grammy award nominated album Repentance and opened his own multi award winning nightclub in Manhattan. It has over 150 loud speakers in it. Last year he also released a collaboration with Soulja Boy.

All of the above is completely true – here’s an example of how deranged some of the music he produced on the Japan only albums was.

Anyway when I was 14 I went to see him on his last tour. Before the gig I watched him eat a massive egg pie (quiche) by himself (party), really quickly (badman), through his tour bus window. The gig itself was more fun than getting stuck on a boat full of pissed, oily tarts and afterwards he came out to talk to everyone and do heroic things like leave people Andrew WK voicemail messages on their phones (no one had a camera phone back then, you had to be inventive to prove you had met a minor celeb).

So yeah, basically I’m pretty psyched about all this, and not in a bent postmodern ironic way, but in a genuine ‘I love giddy great times’ way and I think you should be too. Despite seemingly slipping into ignominy in these parts the UK, like any good elephant, never forgets huge bants and beer swilling mega times, as his three leg tour has had to be upgraded to accommodate the public demand for tickets.

4 Ways To Integrate Pop Music Into Your Entire Life

Some people really hate pop music. For these people pop music is the product of a system which rewards banality, the biggest profit margins and style over substance. This type of music is manufactured without remorse and actively tunes in to the part of the brain most susceptible to rhythmic patterns, so you find yourself practically incapable of not humming the latest No.1 inexplicably on the bus, despite having only caught a whiff of the song on an advert the night before.

For other people, pop music is awesome. They can’t get enough, and finding another opportunity to devour it insatiably is a great thing. For that reason here are some ways which you can scoop a few more dollops of pop into your daily ear trough.

X Factor

The format of this show demonstrates the pop music machine. It takes people that want to be famous, parades them in front of the public for a few months to find out who is the most popular, paints their lovable back stories and then declares a winner. This winner is then dealt a No.1 record thanks to the hype of the show, makes lots of money for the record company, then pitches them into a spiral of depression as their fame dries up. You can watch X Factor in ITV on Saturday and Sunday nights. You can also catch up on their website.

Social Networking

Facebook, and alike, is the latest hunting ground for executives looking for more record buying hoards. If you want to absorb some pop noise, turn off your brain and tune in to what the majority of people are talking about. Find out who has the most ‘likes’ and there you have it: your next favourite pop group.

Wedding

Unless you like real music and get a live wedding band, chances are you will get a wedding DJ. Wedding DJ’s are a special group of individuals who are subjected to requests for aging pop tunes and super diva groups until the end of the night. If you want to escape this madness, trust your DJ because chances are, he will know more about good music than you. Unless you are the bride, then it’s up to you.

Karaoke Bars are big in Japan…and getting bigger in the UK. Karaoke bars are coming to a town near you. With shows like X Factor encouraging everyone and their dog that they can sing, expect to find a range of pop tunes for you to sing along to in your nearest bar soon.

Affiliate Marketing Can Get You Out of Debt

I heard my neighbor pull into his driveway at about 2 AM, the low rumbling of his old Camaro breaking the late night silence. I had heard the familiar rumble as he brought the car to life only an hour earlier when he had headed off to work, something he had done nearly every morning for the past two years. I wondered why he had returned home early, hoping that he and his family were okay. I later learned he had lost his job… he showed up for work but his job was no longer there.

I imagine this scene is playing itself out in quiet neighborhoods all over the world. People’s lives being turned upside down by a failing economy leaving folks with out jobs, without money, and sadly, without hope. I know because it happened to me and on the night my neighbor lost his job I was actually pulling out my credit card to spend the last few dollars we had on one of those instant Internet riches programs you can find in abundance on late night television when you are up pacing the floors with worry.

They prey on folks like you and I, these late night info-mercials. Promises of instant cash flooding your bank account all without lifting a finger… what a scam. Please, do not fall victim to these get rich overnight programs, they do not work.

So, what does work and why am I writing this article at 2 AM? Well, I’m pretty used to being up worrying about money but now I’m up because I am too excited to sleep! I want you to hear me on this: Affiliate Marketing can get you out of debt, plain and simple. Now, I’m not talking about some type of scheme here like signing people up to join your level or down-line or whatever other fancy term these programs have come up with.

Nope, I’m talking about what companies like Home-Depot and WalMart do everyday… act as a middleman between a customer and a product owner. The great thing about doing this on the Internet though is that you do not have to buy the products and resell them. The owner takes care of fulfilling the orders once you make a sale. I like to take it a step further and sell digital “how to” eBooks because there is no physical product to deal with. No printing, shipping or handling charges, just pure profit!

Most eBook owners will pay you 50-75% of those profits just for sending interested people to their websites who ultimately make a purchase. The product is delivered immediately to their computer and an independent third party handles the transaction to make sure you are paid your commission before the owner of the product sees a single dime… It is awesome!

I shared this good news with my neighbor and as I look out my window I see the light on in his study. Imagine, at 2 AM you can get out of bed, walk 20 or so steps to your computer and start working! As the family starts to rise you can be there to greet them and give them big hugs and kisses and perhaps sit down to an unhurried breakfast if you want to. Affiliate Marketing is a true life changing business model and one you should definitely look into!

Groom’s Guide to Picking Some Awesome Wedding Transportation

Below we’ll look at some different types of wedding transportation available to you, and some of the considerations to take into account with each.

Horse Drawn Carriage

We’re kicking off with the most traditional form of wedding transportation – the horse drawn carriage. While it was almost certainly not the first thing that sprang to your mind, it’s something your bride will likely have thought about, especially if she considers her wedding a fairytale. It’s possibly the most romantic of the options.

The Limousine

A limo is another quite traditional option. There are lots of sizes and colours available nowadays but it’s probably best to stick to white or black if you don’t want anything to look tacky!

Classic Cars

A classic car such as a Bentley or Rolls Royce is probably the most popular choice of transport for a wedding. It’s more suited to traditional formal weddings.

Sports Cars

Now this is more like it! If your wedding is a little less traditional, more modern and stylish then this could be a great choice for you. Driving something like a Ferrari or Lamborghini. can be a once in a lifetime opportunity for some people. It will be great fun to drive but the cost is likely to be reasonably high. Expect to be able to hire a Lambo for around £550 per day (though this can vary greatly) and you will have to leave around £4000 as a deposit).

Party Bus

Whilst normally more of a choice for stag do’s or hen nights, if your wedding is more of a relaxed, party type, atmosphere, then you could consider the use of a party bus. This would accommodate all of your guests, and would have stylish sofas and seating, a dance floor, bar, and party lighting. There would also be staff on board to serve drinks. It can be a great fun way to transfer all of your guests to the wedding reception and get the party started as soon as possible!

Similarly, it is also possible to hire a traditional red London bus, which would take you and all the guests from wedding venue to the reception.

Monster Truck / Big Rig Truck

Yes, that’s right… you can hire these to transport you to the wedding, or even to get married in! They are huge, and some are kitted out so that you can even have a party in the back (similar to the party bus mentioned above). This is certainly one option that will get people talking!… just make sure it’s something your bride will like!

The Helicopter

This wouldn’t be cheap but it would be pretty damn cool!! Obviously, if seriously considering this, make sure that there is somewhere near to the ceremony where the chopper will be able to land!

The mode of transport that you eventually decide upon will determine how far in advance you need to book. However, around 3-5 months in advance is normally sufficient.

You also need to think about how the vehicle will be used. Will it take you to and from the wedding, or pick up your bride and take her there? Will you just want something to drive away from the wedding in? You probably won’t get away with spending a lot of money getting a Ferrari to take you, and then not sorting anything for your bride!

When agreeing the price with the company from who you are hiring, make sure you understand everything that is included in the price. How many hours can you have it for? Is fuel included? Do they charge you extra per mile? Is gratuity included if you have a driver? Most companies will normally offer you extras such as Champagne, and flowers, but it normally works out cheaper if you buy these yourself.

Great Gifts That Don’t Cost You a Dime!

‘Tis the season…and you know what that means. Parties! Presents! And…Possibilities!

You want to be prepared! You want to look good. You want to feel good. You want to be on your best behavior (or not! But just in case…

Just in case this season…you’re invited to a fabulous party or decide to host that intimate gathering or just want to go out with friends to see the latest cover band…And just in case He’s there…You want to look and feel your best. You want to be your best self.

And just in case…You want to be prepared with gifts…for yourself as well as others. Here are five great gift ideas that are appropriate for you to give during the Holidays…and all year ’round!

1. Give Presence

When you enter a room…whether it’s on a date or for a party…how you present can determine the level of success (or lack of success) for your evening. You give great presence when you look good, taste good, smell good, sound good and feel good. Wear something that makes you feel fantastic! Do something that’s good for your body…like dancing or exercise or listening to good music. Baths and naps are good too!

Give presence to the moment. Listen and speak with respect. Even if you don’t agree with him (or think he’s a dweeb) give him the courtesy of listening.

Listening is an awesome gift.

2. Give Back

He gives. You give back. He calls. You call him back. He takes you out…(okay twice.) You cook him dinner. Give back in appreciation when he (or anyone else) gives to you. When you receive a gift, give back. Give back to a man you respect in a creative, appreciative way. DO NOT…I repeat…DO NOT give him as much as he gives you. If you give equally…you’re friends. If you give more, he’s in debt to you. So unless you want to play the role of BIG MAMA, pay attention to how much he gives you and what you give back.

3. Give a Smile

Smiles make you look good and they’re easy to wear. Funny thing about a smile…even when you don’t feel like it, smiling makes you feel better. Do it. Push up the corners of your mouth (use your fingers if necessary) and see what happens. Nothing? Do it again. Starting to feel it? Once more…

See? Great. Keep wearing it! 🙂

4. Give a Compliment

When he does something nice for you, compliment him. Thank him for his phone call. Thank him when he takes you out. Tell him how much you appreciate the date (even if you were bored silly.) (He can’t help who he is.)

Practice giving compliments. Thank the bus boy who fills your water glass. Appreciate the security guard who opens the door for you. Men feel good when they’re acknowledged for doing good. One of the greatest gifts you can give a guy is a compliment. And when the compliment comes from an amazing, awesome woman like you, he’ll Rock when he receives it!

5. Give to Yourself

This holiday season, I hope you receive many gifts! But the greatest gift of all is the gift you give yourself. So be generous. Be good to yourself. Take time out. Have fun. Rest. Make time to feel good… And may you have the best Holiday EVER!

Enjoy!
