TIK JESDAPORN OUT OF THE FOREST TO APPEASE FANS ติ๊ก เจษฎาภรณ์ "ออกจากป่า"เอาใจแฟน
[Translation by A Fan from USA of an interview posted byKhun Pim]   Source: Job Cyber; Date: Jan, 2013   [On the cover]   TIK JESDAPORN OUT OF THE FOREST TO APPEASE FANS   INTERVIEW FROM THE COVER Story by Atthaporn, Photos by Vorapol   “TIK Read more ... JESDAPORN” HANDSOMNESS STRAIGHT FROM THE JUNGLE TO THECITY   “I think it is a challenge. From people attached to an imageof me living in the woods as a navigator and a surrealistic person whom I stillfeel I am, but suddenly, I am living my life by working like office people. IfI can create an identity, do it well, and people believe I am really like that,I will regard this as achievements in acting.”   In 2013, the fans of “Tik—Jesdaporn Pholdee,” the authorityin handsomeness, must not complain about being tried of him. This is becauseafter he has gone into the woods and been busy with the Navigator, aconservation program, for a long time, the handsome leading actor has come outthis time and continuously waded through his acting works. These include themovie “Supersalaryman” that has just been through our eyes and soon we will getto stick around glass screens for a long time with 3 TV series in a row. Theyare “Yah Leum Chan” [Forget Me Not] by the producer Da Hathairat and “ManeeMala” by Dao—Poreuthai on Channel 3; and a Korean series remake, “Autumn in MyHeart: This Love Is Forever” on True Visions with “Ananda Everingham” as itsproducer.   YOU HAVE ACCEPTED A LOT OF JOBS WITH YOUR RETURN THIS TIME.   “It is just a continuous moment. Once there is somethingstarted, the machine is heated. This started off with the movie “I Miss You” inearly 2012 and “Supersalaryman” later in the year. Then there are the Koreanseries remake, “Autumn in My Heart: This Love Is Forever,” along with anotherTV series, “Forget Me Not,” that is being filmed, and “Manee Mala.”   IT IS LIKE YOU HAVE SETTLED YOUR QUEUES DURING THE PERIOD OF1-2 YEARS FOR YOUR LENGTHY ACTING WORKS.   “This is regarded as a long-term plan (laugh). I think of itlike that. There is a good opportunity coming into my life and it is during themoment I am ready. I think I have been away enough and caused my fans to missand wait for me for a long time. I was asked often in time passed and I didn’twant to feel guilty anymore for making them wait so I accepted those roles.Once I have accepted them, I must ask myself if I will be able to do them anddo them as well as I can.”   THE ROLE IN “SUPERSALARYMAN” MAKES US FEEL THE DIFFERENCEEVEN MORE WITH THE TIK—JESDAPORN WE ARE FAMILIAR WITH.   “I think it is something I should try in terms of the teamwork, the script, and the ability for me to work in the city. I think it looksvery different and that is good. As an actor, I regard this as somethingchallenging. I myself am probably like a lot of other actors who wait to changethe roles on and on to get good opportunities for ourselves. Once there is achance to work in this life, we should grab it and it is during the moment I amfree. I think it is a challenge. From having people attached to my image ofbeing a navigator in the woods and a surrealistic person who I still feel I am,but suddenly, I get to live my life like an office person. If I could buildsuch a character and do it well; and people believe I am really like that, Iwill say I have been successful in acting.”   THE ROLE OF A BOSS AT WORK IN THE MOVIE IS LIKE REAL PEOPLEWE MEET IN REAL LIFE EVERYDAY. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THAT ANDTIK—JESDAPORN?   “There is definitely a difference. I am a ‘Mr. Perfect Man’in the movie, perfect in everything. I plan my personal life, work life, and mydays off on Sat-Sun. I plan all those and record them in a diary in an iPadabout what to do at what time. I also must do them according to what I haveplanned. Think about a person who arranges his things orderly on his desk.Everything has to be in place. He dresses up neatly, wakes up at 6 AM, jogs for10 min, and turns on TV to check on stocks. Once those are done, he turns offthe TV, gathers his things, starts his car, and drives out to his work at thesame place. He works on the same things and has the same subordinates. His lifeis routine like that everyday, like a lifeless robot. There is only work. Theremay be only 0.01% in the role of Pun in ‘Supersalaryman’ that is like me, andthat is determination in work because I have that just like Pun. I amdetermined to be successful and do it according to the plan I have set. I amlike Pun from that perspective only.”   HOW DID YOU CREATE THE BELIEF IN THIS CHARACTER WHEN INTERMS OF WORK, THAT IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN WHO YOU ARE?   “It was very difficult to make people believe in thebeginning. There were a number of things that were far from me. It was more soif I accepted a job when I didn’t have time to prepare and had a lot of otherjobs left to do. I was a little muddled and confused (laugh). There weresometimes a lot of unexpected factors coming in so I had to rely on myenvironment. An acting coach could be very helpful and I needed to talk to thedirector more. I had to have a lot of people help me build a new character.”   ALTHOUGH IT IS PORTRAYING OF A ROLE IN ACTING, BUT IF WETHINK ABOUT IT, IF TIK HAS TO LIVE YOUR DAILY LIKE THAT IN THE MOVIE, LIKE APERSON WITH A REGULAR JOB LIVING IN A CHAOTIC CITY, WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO MAKEIT?   “I felt totally relieved (laugh) once the movie was over. Ifeel I have respect and amazement for workers called salary people. The words‘salary people’ do not just mean people working in offices only. Those includepublic officials, people in government enterprises and those who receivesalaries. For people who are in regular jobs and do the same things everyday, Ithink they have high level of capability.   [Messages in the inset next to Tik’s image]   “I USUALLY LET IT BE NATURALLY BECAUSE WHAT I HAVE IS READINESS.I OFTEN TALK TO THOSE IN THE FILMING SET THAT I AM ALWAYS READY AND THOSE ARETHE WORDS I SAY EVERY TIME. I USED TO MISS OUT IN THE PAST WHEN THERE WEREVARIOUS GOOD OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE I WAS NOT READY BECAUSE OF A NUMBER OFTHINGS.”   “Think about it. You get to have an adventure before you getto work. You wait at a bus stop and the bus is crowded. It stops sometimes anddoes not at other times so you have to chase after it (laugh). You must not getto work late either and plan to wake up early in the morning at a certain time.Once you get to work, you have the same kind of life in the same place. You dothe same things repeatedly and get off work the same way. Once you get out, yourun into people who also get off work like you all over. There is chaos nomatter where you go. I see that each person can live happily like that but if Iwere like that, I would not have been able to do it. If I have to stay idle orgo to the same place repeatedly, I will be bored because I get bored easily.”   IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT LIVING IN NATURE IN THE WOODS VERSUS INTHE CITY BUT ABOUT THE ROUTINE THINGS THAT ARE THE SAME EVERYDAY THAT MAKE YOUBORED.   “It is because when I started working, I had a chance to actin the first movie when I was still in college, about in my 3rd year. Once Igraduated, I thought I would work according to what I had studied. However, Igot to wander in the entertainment industry. I got acting jobs like movies andTV series. There are freelance and independent jobs. They become regular onlywhen they have set work schedule like from Mon-Thu, something like that. Interms of time, they may be all day or just in the afternoon. It depends. Thereare things making them fun all the time and each day is different. It is like Iam hunting a treasure to the end of horizon because I have a map to go afterit. The map is a location of each day I get to go to and it is not the same soI have not been bored.”   IT IS LIKE YOU ARE THE TYPE OF PERSON WHO DOES NOT PLAN ANDYOUR LIFE CANNOT BE DEFINED. HOWEVER, ARE THERE THINGS IN YOUR LIFE YOU HAVEACTUALLY PLANNED?   “I don’t plan perfectly in my life. There is nothing perfectin life. I am a naturalist. Okay, there may be roughly some things I think Iwant to do next year, a couple of them. I think about them just that much orthere may be nothing. It is roughly like that and I let it be naturally becausewhat I have is readiness. I usually say to those in a filming set that I amready all the time. Those are words I always say every time. I used to miss outin the past when there were various good opportunities because I was not readyover a number of things. Those include in terms of time and other things,especially the Navigator program because I must do it well first. I have givena lot of queues for the program.”   “However, I think I have to have time to do other tings tooat this point. It is like being an actor too, more like 50-50. To do a program,we need to be ready to accept good opportunities because I don’t want to losethem. In the past, it was like ‘What a pity!’ I don’t want to use those wordson myself anymore nowadays, not on jobs or other matters. At the moment, if Ithink of someone, miss someone, or want to talk to someone these days, I willdo it immediately once I have figured out that I am able to. It is just thatwhat I want to do must be creative and not cause others trouble. It must beuseful and I do it once I have thought about it.   “In the past 3-4 years, I put a lot of weight on the side ofproducing the Navigator because it was new to me. For a person producing aprogram, I want to be creative and do it well. I won’t be able to do well forsure if I don’t have time for it. Those things come out from my identity. It islike lined pattern of Jesdaporn Pholdee and the Navigator because it is my lifeand my identity. So I figured I would dedicate more weight to the program to doit well and to prove for people to see I could do a good and creative job likethis.”   “There has been acceptance once the program has been on aircontinually. More and more people have followed it and I feel increasinglyconfident. I have people working for me and ready to understand my job. It islike the program is sustainable now so I am gradually able to put weights onthe other side. It is like I can balance them into 50-50. I can do the programwhile working on acting jobs at the same time without having to leave anythingbehind. It is just that I must agree to allow myself to be tried. Okay, it isbetter than just breathing away each day.”   DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH STOCK FOR YOUR PROGRAM NOW THAT YOUACCEPT MORE ACTING WORKS?   “I try to stock it (laugh). I am trying to but it is mydeficiency. I think about wanting to do this or that. I go out to survey hereand there but what should be in an episode is not crystallized. However, Tik’sbrain figures it out immediately as soon as it is about to be on air (laugh). Iam trying to change that. I should plan ahead but Tik is not a salaryman so hecannot quite do things he has to plan for himself (laugh).”   YOU PRODUCE A PROGRAM IN THE WOODS SO NATURE MATTERS CANNOTBE CONTROLLED AND PLANNING IS DIFFICULT.   “(Laugh) you’ve got it. It is all about nature. I produce aprogram that sometimes is on air for only 30-40 minutes and it takes a shorttime to watch but in reality of the filming, it is about certain things beyondprediction. I may have already watched and listened to programs from theMeteorological Department that the weather during a certain time period wouldbe clear. If I want beautiful images with good light but don’t get it that day,I will have to wait till the next day and I still won’t know if I will getthem. Once I have got into the woods, I would not want to waste the time forfree. It is particularly so if the program is about wild animals at the time.That is more difficult because I cannot force them to come out. I have to bepatient and I’ll have to do it no matter how many days. I will have to comeback first if it does not go according to my plan because the day is over and Iwill have to find another day. It takes a long time to get images when it comesto stories about wildlife. I mostly have to wait for free in time passed justto get 2-5 minutes of images. I think it is something very much big for me.”   WE MUST ADMIT YOU ARE AMONG THE TOP RANKED OF LEADING ACTORSWITH PEOPLE APPEASING YOU A LOT AS TIK-JESDAPORN. BUT ONCE YOU GET INTO THEWOODS TO PRODUCE YOUR PROGRAM, YOU CAN CONTROL NOTHING. HAS THERE BEEN ANYCHANGE IN YOU?   “That was so if we talk about the beginning when I went into do the program. If I humbly talk about this, I will say I am a bit of aninteresting person. I will say I have had enough chance to work as an actor andpeople have seen a lot of things in a lot of stories. Those are impressed andimprinted in the hearts of many people. Another part people had not seen wasthe Navigator part because people only saw Jesdaporn Pholdee as rich and cool.He drove sports cars, and played a role of a soldier or royalty, something likethat. Those were very perfect images that came out so I appeared to be someonepaying much attention to my appearance. However, people had not seen myidentity although I had tried to tell them I was not like that. A real me islike this.”   “It is fortunate that I have a chance to produce theprogram. I have an opportunity to present my identity and the adventure I havebeen through. I get to present stories from my travel experiences and a heartloving various environments. Those make me feel it is okay to do another typejob because I have done my best in acting. I want to try my best in the form ofprogram production in a way that is my identity to see if I can do it.”   “I regard it as another job starting from zero. I am my ownlike this. I am not attached to sight, taste, smell, noise, fortune, ranks, orpraise. I think I am just a worker working on what I like and doing it withlove. Therefore, you will see in time passed I have worked on one thing at atime. My life is not complicated or full of secrets. I do one job at a time anddo my best. I can fully dedicate my time to people who want me. They will nothave to have headaches of exchanging my queues with this or that set. You cansay you will be at ease if Tik is here. I am always ready whenever you want tograb me and your job is completed quickly too. It is okay even if I will haveto deal with the emotion and uncertainty of nature because the Navigator hasbeen resolute for 8 years (laugh). I have been hiking in the woods from a youngage (laugh).”   AND DO YOU INTEND TO HIKE TILL WHEN?   “I will say the more I do it, the more fun it is. If I goback to look at the Navigator in the past, in the first 2-3 years, I may havebeen like a young man loving to travel, adventure, and have fun with it, butnow there is more. My experience has increased so I have a lot of information.I think it is interesting material Thai viewers will memorize and it will makethem love nature. I think I am deeper into it as time goes on. I do things thatare more difficult. They are getting increasingly difficult as time goes on. Ithink it is challenging and I am not yet out of strength.”   DO YOU LIKE YOURSELF TODAY? PEOPLE THINK OF FORESTS,MOUNTAINS AND NATURE WHEN THEY SEE TIK.   “I like myself this way. It is not something awkward like onstage. I think I get to express being myself more than what people see from myacting works. I am glad today that everyone gets to see what Tik—JesdapornPholdee is when they talk about this man. What do people think about? If whatthey think about is correct, I think what I do… I am not praising myself butthis is a creative thing. At least it is a part of helping society and theenvironment. I can do it so I will and it is useful. And when there are morepeople loving things like this or loving the Navigator more, it becomes more ofan encouragement for me. It is also a thrust for me… Hmm!! Oh! There are peoplewaiting to watch and what I do does not go to waste. There are severalhigher-up people seeing part of this too so I get some of those awards. I neverthought a program I produced would get any award. I will regard that as partlybeing successful with program production.”   WITH MORE OF YOUR ACTING WORKS CONTINUOUSLY COMING OUT FORUS TO WATCH IN 2013, IT ATTESTS TO THE FACT THAT ALTHOUGH TIK IS HAPPY WITH THEFOREST, YOU STILL DO NOT LEAVE YOU FANS BEHIND. THEY ARE CERTAINLY WAITING FORYOUR WORKS BOTH ON SILVER AND GLASS SCREENS.   “I had a chance to announce it…boom…some time backaltogether that we would meet for sure the following year. This was both in aKorean series remake on True Visions, and 2 series on Channel 3. Therefore,fans of Tik—Jesdaporn will not be lonesome for sure. It is like I let you knowso you don’t have to sit there and guess. So you all have accurateunderstanding and know what other works I have. We will meet and please bethere as my encouragement.”   HE IS HANDSOME WHEN HE IS IN THE WOODS BUT ONCE HE GETS OUTTO LIVE IN THE CITY, HE CAN STILL MAKE LADIES SCREAM ALL THE TIME. IT ISGUARANTEED THAT 2013 WILL BE ANOTHER YEAR FANS OF TIK—JESDAPORN PHOLDEE WILL BEUNIVERSALLY HAPPY FOR CERTAIN.Job Cyber; Date: Jan, 2013 - coverJob Cyber; Date: Jan, 2013 - 1Job Cyber; Date: Jan, 2013 -2Job Cyber; Date: Jan, 2013 - 3Job Cyber; Date: Jan, 2013 - 4Job Cyber; Date: Jan, 2013 - 5

Berko Akoto GhanaFest Chicago 2014 Shatta Wale Storms Chicago By The Journalist and Pauline Chicago, Illinois: - Where there is a will, there is a way. Congratulations to Ghana National Council (GNC) and President Mr. Ebenezer Antwi -Nsiah, Vice-President Mr. Read more ... Paa Kwasi Sam and their team of hardworking dedicated staff who amid all odds executed the festival in grand style. Once again, Washington Park located at 55th and Martin Luther King Dr., became a Ghanaian Village. President Mr. Nsiah did not hesitate to lament his feelings. “This year’s Ghanafest has been a conscientious effort from members of the community.. We want to thank the State of Illinois, Ghanaians and patrons for helping keep the tradition ongoing. My team wants to shift from an organizational-themed event to a community one. By this, I mean incorporating a broad spectrum of ideas, ideals and implementations catered to preserving the Chicago tradition of Ghanafest. This is just the beginning. Ghanafest will be bigger come next year.” The spectacle of Ghanafest however belonged to the various associations who marched around the park amidst cheering and praising. The event featured the essential parade of Kings and Queens, music, dance, drumming, exquisite aroma of African cuisine and varieties of artifacts. The extravaganza climaxed with a show-stomping performance by Dance Hall King Shatta Wale who flew all the way from Ghana to headline the festival. According to Mr. Sam, the vice-president of the GNC, “We are overwhelmed with the response of this year’s Ghanafest. We thank the Gov. Quinn, Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, sponsors, patrons, tourists and Ghanaians all over who made this possible. We had no resources. We had no funds. God has been the provider. We had so many calls to GNC about those inquiring whether Ghanafest was coming on or not. With all these travesties, the Ghanaian Spirit proved that people are willing to participate when there is a positive undertaking. This is just the beginning and we thank everyone.” Past Ghanafests programs have featured dignitaries in the likes of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, former Ghanaian President Mr. Jerry Rawlings, former Ghanaian Ambassadors, Messrs. Alan Kyerematen and Francis Poku, Minister Louis Farrakhan and Illinois Governor Pat Quinn who appeared briefly to wish Ghana and the festival well. The event began at 10:00 am. The National Anthems of Ghana and the US signified the commencement. The tents allocating associations, vendors, sponsors, food courts and the grand stage were all set up. Children entertained, drummers drummed, storytellers recited their tales of folklore. Patrons, with the mindset that this is a once-a-year event mingled, laughed, connected and tried to belong on this day. As the park filled with inquisitive onlookers, culinary-enthused aficionados in search of Ghanaian dishes made sure, no morsel of food was left on their plates. Many tourists, some of whom had traveled from afar took pictures and recorded footages on their smart devices. All the while, the colors coming from the assembling of hand-made giant umbrellas, beautiful and original Kente cloths, royal staffs, stools, swords and traditional weaponry produced the ambiance of the temporary Ghanaian Village and the skies. Ga-Mantse later spread Kpekple (traditional Ghanaian food) to mark the presence of our ancestors and the homage that we pay to them. DJs pounded on the music. Children roamed, ran and screamed. Drummers drummed. Traditional dancers danced. Vendors pitched their wares. The lines at the food stands ceased to subside. Once it was announced that Shatta was on the grounds, even some of the vendors left their stations and rushed to front of the stage. Some of the frenzied fans in the crowd had to be restrained and driven away from the stage. Before he performed, Shatta Wale, in a show of solidarity, paid respect to his contemporary and soul mate Castro, the fallen colleague who is presumed to have drowned in a jet-ski accident. Once on the mic, Shatta ‘Whined his waist’ while insinuating that “Everybody like my thing” catapulting the crowd to a different level. He moved from side to side, back and forth, proving that he is indeed the perception and the latest entertainer that he has been portrayed to be. The SHATTA MOVEMENT was in full effect! Once we leave the Motherland and voyage to the Diaspora or any place where that may be, some of us become first generation migrants. It is then part of our responsibilities to seek to maintain our heritage. We cannot change our destinies neither can we disguise who we are. Most of us adapt the system and tradition of our adopted homes. We get married; multiply thus yielding to second and third generations who no doubt continue our various legacies. In short, a planted seed keeps growing. While others are certain and willing to abandon their heritage along the way due to diverse reasons, some of which may relate to faith, stress, religion, frustration, marriage, tree-hugging or lack of progress, there are those who will continue to preserve the culture. Where we make our living, it is our home. Other immigrants are proud of their culture and so should we. As long as there is migration to other lands, our young and old ones, irrespective of their situations back home, chance permitting through naturalization or the lottery system will continue to leave the shores of the Motherland. Migrants travel in search of ‘Gold’ ignoring advertently or inadvertently the fact the path to riches is tougher than the hide of an elephant. Ghanafest offers something for everyone. On this day, many people in spite of their persuasions do come to honor and preserve our culture. With twelve Associations mostly formed among tribal lines, other organizations have no ethnic affiliations and are open to anyone who needs a sense of belonging. As the umbrella organization of all Chicago Associations, GNC seeks to bridge the gap between Africans and African Americans some of whom are second and third generation people of African descent. As Ghanaians and Africans at large, one of our main goals is to maintain our culture wherever in the Diaspora. Identity is one of the few possessions that we have while living abroad. This year’s Ghanafest with Mr. Nsiah at the helm as president proved the resilience and resource in Chicago’s Ghanaian community. The biggest Ghanaian event in the Diaspora must go on unabated. Congratulations to GNC and affiliates, sponsors, vendors, patrons and all that proved that Chicago is home of the trailblazers. Ghanafest is alive and kicking.

Krishna Vasudev
Bhagvad Geeta
|| Glory of knowledge || Arjuna , sacrifice through Knowledge is superior to sacrifice performed with material things . For all actions without exception culminate in Knowledge , O son of Kunti . Understand the true nature of that Knowledge by a Read more ... pproaching illumined soul . If you prostrate at their feet , render them service , and question them with an open and guileless heart , those wise seers of Truth will instruct you in that Knowledge . Arjuna , when you have achieved enlightenment , ignorance will delude you no more . In the light of that knowledge , you will see the entire creation first within your own Self , and then in Me { the Over soul } . When you win the favour of your good teacher , O Partha , then wisdom will dawn upon you and dispel the darkness of delusion . Even if you were the most sinful of all sinners , this Knowledge alone would carry you , like a raft , across all your sins . Even if you are the mine of sin , the sea of infatuation or the mountain of delusion , all these are trifles before the power of wisdom ; wisdom possesses such splendid power . Look , if this world appearance, which is the shadow of the formless God , does not last in the light of wisdom , how can your mental impurities last ? It is improper even to say this . There is nothing so grand in this world as wisdom . For , as the blazing fire turns the fuel to ashes , Arjuna , even so the fire of Knowledge turns all actions to ashes . Is it difficult for the whirlwind of dissolution to scatter the clouds , when it can blow away the smoke coming out of the world - destroying fire ? Or will the fire , fanned by the whirlwind , which can even burn water , be extinguished by hay or firewood ? In this world there is no purifier as great as Knowledge ; he who has attained purity of heart through prolonged practice of Karma yoga , automatically sees the light of Truth in the self in course of time . When one is asked what nectar tastes like , one can only answer that it tastes only like nectar . So one can only give the simile of wisdom to wisdom ; to say anything more than this is simply waste of time . Now I shall tell you how to acquire this wisdom ; so Arjuna , please pay your attention { chapter 4 ; verse 38 } . He who has mastered his senses , is exclusively devoted to his practice and is full of faith , attains Knowledge ; having had the revelation of Truth , he immediately attains supreme peace in the form of God - realization . He who experiencing the sweet bliss of the Self , loathes the sense - objects and scoffs at the senses , who neither discloses his thoughts to the mind nor ascribes to himself the actions of Nature { Prakriti } and who is happy being possessed of faith , then wisdom , which is full of peace , comes in search of him . When this wisdom settles down in his mind , conducting to peace , the knowledge of Self spreads and fills his mind . Then wherever he casts his eyes , he discovers peace and loses all sense of ' Mine ' and ' Thine ' . In this way the seed of wisdom grows faster and faster . It is beyond description , let this suffice for the present . He who lacks discrimination , is devoid of faith , and is at the same time possessed by doubt , is lost to the spiritual path . For the doubting soul there is neither this world nor the world beyond , nor even happiness . If a person loathes nectar instead of relishing it , then know that his death is near at hand . So if a person indulges in sensual enjoyments and is heedless of wisdom , he is doubtless possessed by doubt . If a person is full of doubt , he is definitely doomed and loses all happiness in this and the other world . So the man of doubt does not know the difference between what is true and false , right and wrong , beneficial and harmful . Just as a person born blind is not aware of day and night , so the man of doubt does not comprehend anything . Arjuna , actions do not bind him who has dedicated all his actions to God according to the spirit of Karmayoga , whose doubts have been dispelled by wisdom and who is self - possessed { 4 / 41 } . Therefore , Arjuna slashing to pieces , with the sword of knowledge , this doubt in your heart , born of ignorance , establish yourself in Karmayoga in the shape of even - mindedness , and stand up for the fight . || OM TAT SAT ||

The B3AT **This was my recap from Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, CA from 2011... Coachella 2011 was 3 days of life changing experiences and music. It's so hard to describe Coachella because it is a completely different event every year and no tw Read more ... o people have the same experience. There are 7 stages of music (if you include the Do-Lab which was like a DJ tent this year), and you need to somehow figure out how you are going to be in two places at once as you have multiple bands playing at the same time you want to see. Some call it "conflictchella" I just call it being lucky and being in the right place at the right time. Sometimes acts you may have had high hopes for don't really "bring it" for you, and sometimes you are on your way to see an act, and a band is on a stage nearby and they hijack your senses and you find yourself at a completely different mini event. This review is Coachella as I saw it... We stayed at a nice condo near Coachella where we stayed last year, it is deluxe and so nice. It has a stand up "old school" arcade system with 100+ games on it, a poker table, pool table, BBQ, rock fountain, fire pit, flatscreen widescreen TV's in every room. Yeah, it's pretty rough going to Coachella. ; ) We BBQ'd some sliders, has a couple cool ones, and headed for the show on Friday (the first day of Coachella). We walked quite a ways after we parked and it was hot! Friday was by far the hottest day of the 3. Security was way tighter this year and you needed a firmly applied wrist band to even get within a mile of the polo fields where it is held. We got in no problem this year, took all of 5 min inCoachella 2011 was 3 days of life changing experiences and music. It's so hard to describe Coachella because it is a completely different event every year and no two people have the same experience. There are 7 stages of music (if you include the Do-Lab which was like a DJ tent this year), and you need to somehow figure out how you are going to be in two places at once as you have multiple bands playing at the same time you want to see.

Sometimes acts you may have had high hopes for don't really "bring it" for you, and sometimes you are on your way to see an act, and a band is on a stage nearby and they hijack your senses and you find yourself at a completely different mini event. This review is Coachella as I saw it... We stayed at a nice condo near Coachella where we stayed last year, it is deluxe and so nice. It has a stand up "old school" arcade system with 100+ games on it, a poker table, pool table, BBQ, rock fountain, fire pit, flatscreen widescreen TV's in every room. Yeah, it's pretty rough going to Coachella. ; ) We BBQ'd some sliders, has a couple cool ones, and headed for the show on Friday (the first day of Coachella). We walked quite a ways after we parked and it was hot! Friday was by far the hottest day of the 3. Security was way tighter this year and you needed a firmly applied wrist band to even get within a mile of the polo fields where it is held. We got in no problem this year, took all of 5 min inline (normally could be 1 hr to get in easy), so we were so stoked on that! We noticed there was an indoor bar and restaurant by the gate and we made a mental note, this is new, this year is gonna be different for sure. And it was, there was a big huge circular tent for merch, a ferris wheel, a new Dome stage for DJ's with a tree inside and the DJ's spinning from inside the tree, so cool, way more porta potties, and a ton of new and good places to eat. It seemed way less crowded than last year, vibe was good, and space was plenty, it seemed as if Coachella was back to the way we liked it :) We started off Day 1 at Ozomatli on the main stage. It was sooo hot, so we ducked into the beer garden and watched from there, it was so hot we couldn't really dance, which was a bummer because they sounded good. From the garden we caught a tiny bit of Titus Andronicus on the Outdoor stage, they seemed like they would have been fun as well. Our friends from OC, Kevin and Rachel who were there and camping met up with us and we headed for the main stage for Cee Lo Green. We stood in the hot sun for 25 minutes waiting for him, we could hear Warpaint on Outdoor and they sounded great, I so wanted to move and see them, but we were really hoping to see Cee Lo. Finally it was going to be time for The Pains of Being Pure at Heart to come on at Mojave Tent, so we had to move on, some of the things that came out of our sweaty mouths upon walking away was "F*ck You" and "I'm so mad at your ass right now, Cee Lo" ha ha ha We headed to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and we got inside the tent, got a great spot and they came on. They opened with "Belong" the title track off their new album, and it soared, they really sounded good, and it was this moment that I really felt our Coachella had started. Kevin and Rachel were gonna head to Lauryn Hill, so we split up, and Mike and Josh and I headed to see Australia's very own Tame Impala on Outdoor Stage. Mike and I have decided we love being on the outdoor stage for this time slot 5:50 - 6:35 it is mellow, it is between heat and night coolness, and has a great vibe. Tame Impala was perfect for this slot, they sounded like a group straight out of the sixties, they closed with an epic "Half Full Glass Of Wine", it did not disappoint, it was an all out jam! After Tame Impala we went to the locker, dropped off our hats and glasses, and got ready for night chella. We tried out the indoor food and bar place, and that was a nice break. We headed over and got a good spot for Interpol. They were so good! They opened with "Success" and then moved straight into "Slow Hands". They played mostly songs from the first two albums which are my favorites. Including "NYC" and "Narc". So good! For the song "Lights" from their new album they were accompanied by a video done by Director David Lynch titled "I touch a red button", um yeah, David Lynch, Interpol, yes it was dark and disturbing. Ok cool. We moved forward after Interpol and got in closer for The Black Keys who came on with the two of them Dan and Patrick and rocked a few older songs including "Girl Is On My Mind", which I love! Dan Auerbach let us know that it was Patrick the BK's drummers birthday, so we all shouted happy birthday in unison for him. Such a great drummer too! They brought out three additional musicians to play almost all of 'Brothers' the newest album, and man it was awesome! Especially "Next Girl", it was so gritty and deep and passionate. Love those guys. The Black Keys ended with Dan and Patrick jamming alone on stage to an extended version of "I Got Mine" and it smoked!!! It wailed!! Great set. Next time BK's play chella they will be headlining I predict. On our way to the Sahara tent we stopped by and caught a little Monarchy, they sounded fun. We boogied down to Sasha in the Sahara, music was great, but the crowd was filled with the "bros and ho's", kinda ruined the scene for me. On our way to the main stage to end the night with Chemical Brothers we saw and heard a little bit of Europe's version of Madonna, Robyn. The Friday (Day One) ended with us dancing to the block rockin' beats of The Chemical Brothers on the main stage! It was one big dance party filled with stunning visuals, a ton of fun. We were tired and ready to rest up for Day 2. On Saturday we woke around 10:00 am and made some breakfast, lounged around, did a little grocery shopping, BBQ's some delicious hot links and then headed to Coachella Day 2 (Saturday). We really wanted to get there early to check out The Joy Formidable, but they came on at 12:50 pm, and that makes for way too long of a day for us old folk. So we decided to miss them (insert sad face here) and get there in time for Gogol Bordello. (on a side note, Kevin and Rachel our friends who were camping saw Joy Formidable and said they were amazing! They smashed all their equipment at the end. Sounded like a solid set. As we walked into the polo fields and to the main stage, Gogol Bordello had already started. We wasted no time and went head first into the crowd and joined the dancing fools on the field, and totally enjoyed their set. They played "Start Wearing Purple" towards the end, and that was a lot of fun! Gogol has definitely become quite the "sweethearts" of Coachella. If you ever have a chance to see them live, GO! After Gogol ended we high tailed it to the Gobi Tent to see The Radio Dept. Cooled off and enjoyed a great mellow set from them. The have a sort of New Order vibe to them, I like it. They were a group I really wanted to check out, and they didn't disappoint. We left Radio Dept. and walked next door to Mojave tent and caught a few songs from Two Door Cinema Club, these guys I had done very little research on, I had only heard they would be fun, and they were, I need to follow up on them and download some of their tunes, cool band, it has a good beat and you can dance to it (if you know what I mean). We hit the beer garden chilled out with a cool one to the awesome songs of Erykah Badu. She's so great and soulful, really enjoyed her set! Only wish we would have heard "Otherside of the Game", she either played it before we got there or not at all. We met up with Kevin and Rachel. We had a beer and some food and afterwards we walked to the outdoor stage for what would be one of my favorite sets of the weekend surprisingly, and that was a full blown rock n' roll set from Cage the Elephant. Man, these guys put on a great show! Matt the lead singer was wearing a red sun dress, he looked like a slightly taller version of "little orphan Annie", and moved and sung and rocked like Iggy Pop. I didn't know too much by them, but by the end, I was a fan. Matt did a stage dive from a high speaker into the crowd and they smashed their guitars and threw one in the audience, Rock N' Roll!!! We then walked over to the main stage for Broken Social Scene, the Canadian band set the crowd in a frenzy with such a fun set! We all totally dug it, by the end when they played "Meet Me In The Basement" it was a sonic dance party, I would definitely see them again. It was still hot out at this point, but the music was so cool it didn't matter. And Day 2 wasn't as hot and there was a nice breeze. It was now time to check out Elbow at The Mojave tent. We were kinda worn out at this point and we werent feeling it. We heard one of their biggest songs "Grounds For Divorce" and then decided... We needed a drink! So we headed to our air conditioned bar and had a drink and regrouped. On our way over by the main stage we caught Bright Eyes last two songs, and two great ones at that. "Road to Joy", and "The Calendar Hung Itself". Love Bright Eyes, we have seen him twice at Coachella, he is a great artist, never fails. After some refreshments we headed back in and over to Gobi Tent for the classic post punk band 'Wire'. I really dig these guys and they sounded good, unfortunately we only got to see a bit because it was time for BAD. That is Big Audio Dynamite on the Outdoor Stage. Mick Jones (of the Clash) classic 80's band. And it was a classic set, they opened with "Medicine Show" and played all the hits "E=Mc2" "The Globe" and my favorite "The Bottom Line". He even played a song he had collaborated with the late great Joe Strummer on. It was a great set, I will be honest, as much as I love the Clash and BAD, it sounded a bit dated for me. We had so far heard some amazing music throughout the weekend, and BAD sounded old to me and made me feel old. I guess we are all older, eh. But it was great to see them having so much fun, and I enjoyed it! We had to miss Empire of the Sun as we wanted to catch a bit of Paul Van Dyk and dance before Suede. Paul Van Dyk was sick! Awesome visuals and light show and a really fun set of dance music, great stuff! We then headed next door to the Mojave Tent for The London Suede who I hadn't seen in concert since 1992 when they were just called Suede. They were so good! It was great to see them reunited in all their glory. They played alot off the first record, my favorite, including "Pantomime Horse" which was a top 5 moment for me of the whole weekend! They are such a great alternative band, they paved the way for a lot of bands like Oasis and Blur in the 90's. Sounded amazing! It was time to close Day 2, and the best place we could see doing that was on Main Stage with The Arcade Fire. Oh boy, this was a doozy of a set! One for the Coachella books. They were sooo good! All the new material off "Suburbs" sounded great live. The set was a bit mellow until toward the end when they played "Neighborhood 3 (Power Out)" This song jammed, and a group of 20 people near to us all lit up sparklers. They ended the main set with "Wake Up" and it was awesome! Not only did the whole crowd wake up, but especially those in the front as about 100 or so HUGE rubber balloons were dropped that all lit up and changed colors in unison. They returned to the stage for the encores "Suburbs Reprise", "Ready To Start", Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) which is one of my all time fav's, and the closed the night with "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains), it was a dance party I will never forget! On Sunday we all felt surprisingly good, and we had champagne and sliders, which is a new tradition for Sunday Coachella's show we started last year. Caroline was really excited to see Duran Duran and it looked nice as far as the weather. Day 3 began! Started off at main stage again, this time for the chill sounds of rapper Wiz Khalifa, I really dig his music and he had a nice show, everyone was dancing where we were. "Roll Up" was my favorite song we heard. It was really hot outside, and we needed to dance, so we went to the Sahara Tent and chilled to Jack Beats spinning there. Followed by old school German DJ Sven Vath, great stuff! We headed to the lockers and indoor bar to get ready for night and heard a bit of Death From Above 1979. We walked over to Gobi Tent for Foster The People and their crowd was so huge by the time they came on and from where we stood it sounded awful, so we headed to Outdoor Stage for The National. They sounded so good, opening with Bloodbuzz Ohio I don't know what was redder, the stage lights and background, or the amazing sunset! Awesome! We also got to hear "Slow Show" which is one of my favorites by The National. Love those guys! We B-lined to Main Stage for Duran Duran and had a good spot. They did not disappoint, sounded great, looked great, and played a lot of hits. Including "Rio", "Girls On Film", "Notorious", "View To A Kill", "Ordinary World" and my personal favorite and top ten moment "The Chauffeur" with Simon Le Bon in a Chauffeur cap and dramatic fashion. Very cool! We heard some of Chromeo's funky dance rock set as we waited for another highlight act on the mainstage... The Strokes stormed onto the Coachella stage and took the crowd by force, tearing through classic songs like "Someday", "Last Night", "Reptilia", "You Only Live Once", "Juicebox", "Take It Or Leave It", "New York City Cops" and my personal favorite, which I am shocked they played "The Modern Age" from 'Is This It'. They were so much fun! and sounded amazing! Next up was a living music legend PJ Harvey on the Outdoor Stage. Or "The Real Sunday Headliner" as someone held up a sign. She sounded great and looked great. In a white wedding-like dress and big tall feathers in her hair, she played a lot off her new album 'Let England Shake' with her amazing band. One of the best back up bands I can recall. So pro and talented. She only went as far back as 'To Bring You My Love' as far as her song choices, playing "Down By The Water" off that one. She also played "Big Exit" which jammed. And closed with a rockin' "Meet Ze Mostra". She is definitely rock royalty! For the end of the festival we split a bit, Mikey went to Kanye West and Caroline and I went and checked out a bit of The Presets at Mojave Tent. They were like 20 min late, and that always knocks the wind out of my sails. They opened with "Talk Like That", loved it! and I love the Presets. We stuck around for a while and then went and watched a little bit of Kanye West on the main stage. Surprisingly I was very impressed with Mr. West's performance and his demeanor. I am not a big fan of the man, but I really felt this was his redeeming moment. It was spiritual and lovely. He dedicated the show to his "Mama" who passed away a few years back. It was touching and a great end to a great and epic Coachella 2011. In closing, I always feel like I have been on vacation for a month when I go to Coachella. It is such a release emotionally and spiritually. It is highly stimulating and at times exhausting. It's Coachella, and it's the greatest festival on Earth. If you want the most rewarding musical experience ever, save your $$ and we will see you in 2012.

#BoldandBeautiful The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Who Gets Married on B&B – Hope and Liam or Brooke and Bill, Maybe Deacon? BY AMANDA AUSTIN ON JULY 27, 2014 The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers revealed in June that the cast of B&B has filme Read more ... d a wedding on location in Monaco. We all assumed the wedding was that of Bill Spencer and Brooke Logan, but considering recent events on the CBS soap opera, they most likely aren’t going to be headed down the aisle together any time soon. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that during the week of July 28th Bill will confess to Brooke that he is responsible for Ridge’s accident at their last almost-wedding in Abu Dhabi. So, if Bill and Brooke didn’t get married in Monaco, then who did? Well, according to Bold and the Beautiful spoilers, Deacon makes a move on Brooke after she learns what Bill did. So, perhaps Brooke and Deacon decide to spontaneously get remarried. Brooke has always been unpredictable when it comes to the many men in her life, so the idea of her and Deacon getting married isn’t out of the realm of possibility. Another possibility is the wedding that was filmed could be that of Liam and Hope. Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Wyatt gives Hope the HFTF diamond, and Liam is not happy about it. Maybe Hope decides to marry Liam to prove to him that she won’t be running back to Wyatt any time soon and she is dedicated to him. What do you think Bold and the Beautiful fans? Which B&B couple do you think will get married this month? Is there a chance that Brooke will forgive Bill for what happened in Abu Dhabi and still marry him?

We ArE LiKe AnD LoVe tomorrowland Tomorrowland’s second weekend hit its halfway point with another star-studded assortment of talent on Saturday (July 26). Despite early indications of rain, the weather held it together for the enthusiastic masses that descended upon the festival Read more ... s otherworldly stages and installations. Billboard takes you back to Boom, Belgium, to recap second day’s highlights. Tomorrowland 2014 Day 1 Highlights: Avicii, Dillon Francis, Kygo & More 1:30 p.m.: Dutch duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano tag-team the main stage for a three-hour set to open the festival’s second round. After building to their typical primetime fare, the artists cut to an acapella of Justice vs. Simian’s “We Are Your Friends.” The early birds in attendance shout along with the words. No shortage of smiles. 4:47 p.m.: Chris Liebing pummels the Kozzmozz stage with pounding kick-heavy techno beats while video screens project the traced after-images of an anonymous city skyline. The German DJ grins and raises a heavily tattooed arm as green flames spurt before the stage alongside enormous flower adornments. 4:54 p.m.: Making my way over to Audien, a towering fan in a Goofy costume accosts me. After planting a high five on his overlarge glove as prompted, I’m immediately flanked by a shirtless festival-goer dressed as Thor. Unleashing a battle cry, he attacks my blind spot with the speed and precision that only an inflatable sword can offer. 4:59 p.m.: The instantly infectious lead melody of Audien’s “Hindsight” matches the euphoria at Ferry Corsten’s Full On stage. The young Anjunabeats artist beams and extends a palm to the crowd. A dedicated fan in the front row whoops and shakes a homemade banner bearing Audien’s name, while another shakes a giant inflatable hammer inexplicably emblazoned with an Israeli flag. 5:11 p.m.: Audien transitions from Galantis’ “You” into “Serotonin,” his recent collaborative single with singer/songwriter Matthew Koma. “I never want to come down from you!” Koma cries. If the rampant energy on display is any indication, neither does the crowd. 5:35 p.m.: Above & Beyond drop Seven Lions’ “Don’t Leave” on the main stage’s trance-mad masses. Ellie Goulding’s vocals precede a gigantic bass drop that sends the enchanted crowd into conniptions. More limbs than can be counted flail in every conceivable direction. 6:25 p.m.: “They have to play Sun & Moon right?” a concerned fan queries no one in particular. The all-knowing trance gods immediately placate her fears as the acoustic version’s iconic piano melody and strings excite all in attendance. A bombshell in comically sized sunglasses and a neon yellow headband perches on her friend’s shoulders, seemingly intent on embracing the sky in its entirety. 6:38 p.m.: The main stage’s mass exodus subsumes the festival’s narrow bridges with a crowded crush of fans. Floating lily pad flowers belch water in periodic bursts while walkers tread proverbial water. A slowly-passing festival-goer hoists a foreboding sign that reads “Winter is Coming.” A second fan painstakingly follows with a sign reading “My Name is Winter.” A third completes the series with “My mother doesn’t know I’m here,” drawing tension-defusing chuckles from the horde. 8:00 p.m.: Kaskade enthralls the main stage congregation with “Atmosphere,” the title track off last year’s LP that boasts his own vocals. The American dance star’s face contorts with effort as he mouths along to his own song before relaxing into a pearly smile as the colossal crowd picks up the refrain. 10:14 p.m.: Sweden’s Alesso wraps up a rollicking remix of Disclosure’s “Latch” and mixes down into the reflective piano line that introduces his smash remix of OneRepublic’s “If I Lose Myself.” Cheers swell and couples kiss as the vocals enter. The snare-stuttered build seems to take an eternity, building tension that boils over into a frenzied release upon the drop. Alesso can’t contain himself with mouth agape and palms pumping to the beat, his face frozen in a perfect portrait of euphoria. 10:38 p.m.: An explosive burst of energy grips the capacity crowd as Hardwell takes the main stage reins. The Dutch dance megastar made his name as the don of festival-sized sets and he shows his expertise early with a series of dizzying builds and drops that enrapture the staggering crowd. Stranded smilers take in the scene with glitter-sprinkled faces. Even those without a direct line of sight dance wildly with perfect strangers. It’s clear that for many in attendance, the moment far outstrips the man onstage. Hardwell has simply become a catalyst for unbridled and revelatory release. 12:10 a.m.: Tiësto reaches a break as every light extinguishes, shrouding the fully-packed field in darkness. A deafening cry of mixed wonder and excitement takes hold of the main stage mob as their entry wristbands hum to life with blinking blue light. 12:16 a.m.: The backstage mood is cheerful and relaxed. Hardwell jokingly whips a friend with a towel while his proud parents quietly converse with his entourage. Dyro wears a black jacket and a sizable smile at an adjacent table. Anticipation takes form in a swelling cheer as green lasers arc across the expectant crowd, whose wristbands reignite in response to the escalating energy. Security personnel diligently prepare for Hardwell’s onstage ascent. 12:30 a.m.: Hardwell joins Tiësto in the booth. The duo receive an unmatched ovation and commence with a remix of “Zero 76,” the collaborative homage to their shared hometown that helped launch Hardwell’s career. It’s as predictable as butter on bread, but the adorant crowd eagerly laps it up. 12:49 a.m.: After exchanging a fraternal embrace, Tiësto and Hardwell spin around to pose for a photograph in the booth while most of Tomorrowland rages behind them. For two of the industry’s most polished and professional artists, there’s nothing scripted about the genuine excitement and joy etched in their faces. While the joint set is surely more spectacle than substance, it’s also nothing less than two friends performing with passion on their genre’s most significant stage. Fireworks fill the sky.
