What Music means to you?

What music mean to you?

What music means to you? Well, surealy this is one of those questions for which you  know the answer but you just can’t describe satisfactorily. So, here is my try.

What music mean to you?

What music mean to you?

I’m a music lover n’ my friends know that. I’m not a great muzician or a singer but I have quite a good taste. I admire those who live the music and in my dreams I see myself becoming one.

I’m not sure since when I’m listening to Music and became an addict; but with Music, older I grew younger I got, stronger I got!

I believe there is no Music, No Song, No Rhythm exists which you can’t relate your life with. Music is the most powerful element that can drive you from moods and situations. Music is enormous source of instant energy, it thrills n’ chills.

Imagine a strongest tsunami or a volcano or a tornado… nothing can beat the impact of music. Music ON and Boom… it takes you. It has life within it.

Music teaches you ways to live, makes you feel, explains you things and situations. It encourages you, motivates you, it pours energy into you. Music can make you cross your boundaries and you’ll feel powerful like never before.  Music is food for soul.

I literally race with the beats while I work, I walk and I play. That particular song runs in the background even if I’m not listening to it. I take a feel of it.

For me, a lyric is a sharp blade & the music is a real force behind it. A great music will cut me in pieces in a single shot and that’s how I like it. Music is an ocean of joy, sinking is the only desire I’d have. When you like something it goes straight to your heart, mind, blood and it runs in your body, charging you and changing you. Music is a wound you’ll always like to remain unhealed. The world will not be same, music changes it. It changes rather improves your view, your perception or deception.

I listen to Classical & Bollywood, Rap & Rock & other varieties of Music without any restrictions of language. I remember the days when I used to eat Metallica & Eminem… before starting our cricket / football sessions!

I don’t know but I literally get goose bumps while listening to my favourites.

I am not a good singer by voice quality at least; but I like singing a lot. I literally do singing sessions of an hour or two whenever I’m home. I sing all my favourites until my throat pains and tears literally come out of my eyes. I always keep thinking, how great those people might be feeling while they make you feel so selfless and so full of yourself, how contradictory and how self-confident. It must be a great feeling as well. I’ve never tried marijuana but I have no doubt music can take you much higher.

Eminem, Enrique, James Blunt and many more, may be I’d have to dedicate a whole page to write names. Not only English, my list includes great Hindi singers like Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shan, KK … and even Rammestein :) Yes I hardly understand the language (I do try using translators) but I sing it at the top of my voice. I don’t care about neighbour, I lock the door and put my speakers on full volume and sing with them.

It’s really difficult to explain how I feel the music in words; it’s quite an observatory difference you can find in me while I’m doping music. I don’t know how to explain but I love to live those moments, those rythmic waves of music. I love music. I live music.

One more, a bit personal reason why I love music is I spell it as MuZiK. That’s coz MuZiK connects me with my better 99% part (not half).

So, What’s music for you?

Light Writing or Painting Photography with Sony DSC HX1

It always feels good to have a capable camera and it feels even better to explore new capacities of my Sony DSC-HX1 :)
After entering into manual mode and understanding a bit of photography basics, I turned exploring something really creative and exciting in photography.

Light Writing… quite self explanatory, writing with the light source and importantly making sense there-after :)

What it takes to take a light writing?

– Exposure: A long exposure time is a basic requirement for your camera. My Sony DSC-HX1 provides enough long exposure time, 30 sec.
– A tripod: Without a steady support you won’t be able get the perfect shot. Anything more than 1 second has a risk of introducing “hand-shaking” effect in your capture. I don’t have tripod but I managed. ;)
– Light Source: A light emitting source.
– A dark place, really dark :).
– Have your ISO least and aperture value higher. Play a bit with settings, you’ll figure it out.

Also you have to imagine a virtual surface and sense of in-focus area, to capture a perfect light writing sample.

Below are my first captures into “light writing”:

First Word: Love (expressing my love towards Sony DSC-HX1)

love-light-writing

Love


F-Number: F/3.5
Exposure Time: 5 Sec.
ISO: ISO-125

Well that’s me in the back… and that’s why proper darkness is required.
Also, do remember, camera will capture a mirror image and you’ll have to do basic editing!

and my name: Krex

F-Number: F/3.5
Exposure Time: 5 Sec.
ISO: ISO-125

Mad WWE Fan Destroying Kid With Chokeslam | Don’t try this

There are a lot of speculations around WWE and its effect on kids.  I personally love watching the Stars and their action and dedication towards the World Wrestling Entertainment! Though many people out there do oppose the game. They say, it increases the violence in people and fan following.

The show do warn every-time: ‘Don’t try this’ at home or at school!! But you cannot control unguided rockets :)

It goes like people start following the WWE stars; Kane, Undertaker, John Cena and the list goes on…
soon end-up in copying them without knowing the realities and hard-work behind! and ultimately ruining the WWE’s name.
In such cases if the problem is not addressed well & the child is not taken care of, it’s really a problem.
When the child grows up with such mentality, it will be something extremely tragic as happened below…

Check out how a mad WWE Fan, who is so much inspired by Kane and his Chokeslam, that he literally destroys the baby.

So mind it always…

WHO YOU ARE,
WHATEVER YOU DO…
PLEASE DON’T TRY THIS.
