Chrissy Costanza Thinker, Beauty, Rocker!

Published by James Lynch on December 16, 2017

CHRISSY COSTANZA THE ROCKING VOICE OF ATC

Chrissy Costanza, since the group’s beginnings, is proud to say “I am the voice of the band Against the Current.”
In this feature, the Product of Culture Website will show you why these twenty-two years of age singer is something special in the music industry.
From singing, to fitness, to beauty tips and the way youthful vigor is not just in her athletic performances, but also in her mind’s ability to express what is really on her mind.
Chrissy honestly feels she figuratively lives and breathes music. So as she takes in the air along with the rhythms of the universe, like a growing plant’s photosynthesis process, she exhales musical creations. Like as oxygen gives and maintains life for others, when you listen to Chrissy’s die-hard fans comment on her music, you quickly ascertain they also feel her songs have saved them in a similar way that air is life-giving to us.
She not only identifies with the younger generation but she also periodically places well thought-out reflective writings on society and how they feel about it. Notice this statement on Social Media from her: She loves animals as you can see.

She at times in a no-nonsense way will “cut to the chase.” If you get the opportunity to read at least one of her journal writings or a candid interview from the past year, you may appreciate that even though she states, ‘sometimes my mind gets cluttered by all of my thoughts and little interests;’ Chrissy is very much a thinking and reasoning person. Just don’t come with some inconsiderate, purposely making assumptions to cause trouble or be mean, nonsense (chuckle).

411 Topics: Chrissy Costanza – Chrissy Costanza Article Highlights

When you have questions like who’s who in your band? Who does your makeup? I heard she writes, but where? Or even when a person says, look I’m here for the music, where is ATC’s next rock concert? Then there are answers for the true-blue fans as well.

Band Members
Against The Current (often abbreviated as ATC) is an American pop rock band based in Poughkeepsie, New York, and formed in 2011. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Chrissy Costanza, guitarist Dan Gow, and drummer Will Ferri. – Against the Current Wikipedia
Chrissy Costanza has an exceptional voice quality that can sing hard rock and some of the softest ballads meant for ballroom dancing, if you will, in my opinion. If you have not heard this side of Chrissy and Against the Current, as a whole, the Product of Culture website is spotlighting several videos near the end of this article in order to give you the scope of what this band provides in entertainment and professionalism.

Writings

As mentioned at the start of this article, Chrissy is a bright young lady who enjoys writing when her busy schedule allows times for it. She possesses a connoisseur’s like taste in language. Oh, in due time, she could be an editor for a fortune 500 company. You will never worry about the company’s final memo draft or public statements giving the wrong impression by typos again. (Chuckle)
Here is a link to one of her blog articles “THE ULTIMATE VEGAN BURGER”

Chrissy Costanza 2018 Sings Against the Current

The perceptive music lovers here are most likely interested in knowing about Chrissy Costanza’s taste in music and what to expect from the group, Against the Current, as a whole.The “whole” meaning, due to the reasons a band’s songs can be just as multifaceted as the individual musicians. How will these talents be utilized in the album creation process? Additionally, are these attractive band members surpassing skin deepness of thought; along with a mind of keen insights that will be heard in the music?

This article will provide the answers to the questions mentioned above mostly from Chrissy Costanza’s perspective because she is the lead singer. Since this role often makes her spokesman for the band; and yet, you still see the team harmony of Dan Gow, Will Ferri, and Chrissy Costanza where they root for one another. Endearingly realizing they are on the same love boat of music; as well as it should be.

2018 ATC NEW MUSIC
We are going to start with ATC’s new sounds for 2018. Why? Because ATC has an abundance of music(videos) & show performances in addition to interviews throughout this year. With that said, it will make it easier for some of you readers to save this web page in your browser’s favorites to get the latest videos that will be updated monthly.

Against The Current: Strangers Again [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Chrissy Costanza Places her DNA in Songs

Chrissy is very serious about the effect of music in her. To onlookers It seems like she places her very essence of who she is as a person in the songs ATC creates.
Chrissy Costanza: ‘I am the voice of the band Against the Current. I live and breathe music. But sometimes, my mind gets cluttered by all of my thoughts and little interests.’
I’ve picked a few facts about “Krispy.” Many of you do not know about this website where the information is located

Chrissy Costanza WordPress

Chrissy’s favorite colors are red and cobalt blue and guess what? Her nickname is “Krispy.” Most of us realize Chrissy has a Goldendoodle dog named Sammy. I declare that dog thinks she is human; when she is laying on Chrissy’s bed you better not tell her otherwise!

Chrissy is Italian-American. Do you see that spirit in her blood? I bet you do. Her height is 5’1″ or about 155 centimeters.

She plays League of Legends- No surprise here. Chrissy loves all things makeup, hair and skin care. She loves popcorn. Chrissy’s favorite animal is the lion. Definitely no surprise here. She’s crazy with pizza! – Ditto from the populace!
Life Perspectives From Chrissy’s Mind; and maybe Ours.

Chrissy Costanza “The Fuss”

In life…You will encounter persons that at times will know a situation is (Teenagers Voice) worst of the worse, to use that expression, and they won’t say a thing about it.

A)Sometimes it is because he or she is indifferent.

B) Sometimes they will not due to fear of being ostracized.

C) Sometimes they won’t because he or she feels it is not their place.

D) Other times, they are the very ones who agree with such treatment of another human or maybe poor animal or chump (70 s background culture).

Just providing you with facts and experience for those times when you get a gut feeling on social interactions that stick with you. As the targeted perceived chump (Though this description of you could be in error), you may find points

A , B, and C not only understandable in today’s world but also capable of forgiving & healing in a quicker amount of time as you do your best with your beliefs. Some will reasonably accept you for your personal decisions and time needed to heal wounds, while others won’t. (Reference Points A & D mindset again)

Still, it happens inadvertently, such intrusiveness does nothing but keep the wounds (teared) open that time would have eventually healed. – Don’t Judge

With Chrissy however, when she perceives something is seriously out of whack with the universe, she will express herself through music and conversations. Therefore, what this writer and music listener has observed from some of her social media statements is a spirit that at times he exclaims, “Bravo” “Good for you Chrissy.”

With the above information made known, there are times when this writer also says, “What?” “Oh no she didn’t say that!” – Oh Yes, she did!

A mother may respond, “We take the good with the (light-hearted) bad (chuckle) you just have to love her.”

And guess what? Her (We) supporters do.

Take a look at this 2018 interview O2 Ritz Manchester had with ATC.
(Excerpt 1) O2: caught up with vocalist Chrissy Costanza, to talk all things album two and get her advice on coping with everything the world throws at you.”

(Excerpt 2) O2: It sounds great by the way! Are there any particular themes or messages you approached with the writing? Chrissy: I think for this record, I really wanted to do a lot of self-reflecting. A lot of the record is the introspective look on all of these situations, whereas in the past I would’ve written ‘Strangers Again’ about, “This is what you did to me, you messed up, you screwed up, you did this, you’re a bad person and I hate you blah blah blah”, that sort of thing, like in ‘Talk’ or ‘Fireproof’. On this record, it’s more of my inner perspective of it and how I reacted to it and how I feel about it, how I feel that maybe I could even be at fault for certain things, even if it’s someone else doing something to me. I think that’s just part of growing up and taking on responsibility, not just for your actions, but for allowing other people to act a certain way to you, towards you, or around you.

A Writer’s Thoughts

During the time of this writing in 2018, Chrissy Costanza of ATC (Against the Current) has new music and is touring around the globe rocking the stage! Chrissy is an intelligent young person. Don’t let the times she gets upset and tells certain individuals they can go jump in a lake on social media (she uses at times ear alerts language) allow you to think otherwise. Really, one day, the Product of Culture website may highlight just how intelligent some personalities are but you may never know it by the public persona.

Product of Culture Chrissy Costanza – An Interesting Question and Statement

Where is that line between giving up and knowing when to walk away? I’ve searched for so long, someone keeps redrawing it.

Qoute from Chrissy Costanza Twitter Social Media

Please stick with me for an extended while longer to propound Chrissy’s question in a specific setting. Then I will be sure to provide links to videos and pertinent ATC articles including merchandise.

A Breakup of – (Friendships, Mates, Professional Partners, Family)

Have you ever heard someone in hindsight of a breakup say, ” If I just would have been more sensitive to _ needs we would still be together”?

You see it is vital to know that not all relationships end because the two involved desired it to end. Make no mistake about it, William Shakespeare’s terminology of star-crossed lovers provide insight as to why a percentage of relationships (Friends, Mates, Professional Partners) end. Mainly due to outside influences and interferences from people; some well-meaning and some who are definitely not, who have weight behind them to help or harm a covenant or promise between the couple (Friendships, Mates, Professional Partners).

Hypothetical story: Over the past year, there was a man who made it a point to listen to what certain persons were saying about a professional partner of his. Let’s be clear, this man and professional, does not give heed to gossip(slander) and sees no need to participate in it on strangers let alone when it comes to someone who is very special in his circle.
Chrissy Costanza “Legends Never Die”

All the same, there were a few well-meaning ladies (some men as well, but the focus is on the ladies for this hypothetical story) who wanted to make sure the man knew the other side of his professional partner from their view. This took the course of several months, and sometimes these intelligent women wondered, “Did he understand what I just told him and showed him?”

The man (the professional) did grasp what they told him about his professional partner, he just stored it away in his mind of considerations. The man (the professional) most likely would want to thank all the sincere ladies (professionals)! You are marvelous darlings.

Here is something to consider. Over the years, the man had already discovered the very ( scaring of a beautiful mind) situations they had related to him. All the same, as the years went on, he realized his partner at this time couldn’t fulfill their role in the most serious(necessary) of ways. However, his mind was made up never to cause additional pain to his professional partner purposely. Somedays it was a struggle but still here are the very factors he considered:

Are there extenuating circumstances? Most definitely there are!
If his professional partner was truly placed in an environment where he|she could heal would they fully bloom in beauty in all its aspects? You better believe it!
Though I have to break it off how can I let this person know I will always give him|her a cup of water or food to eat if they would just ask in the reasonable and exactly prescribedmethod I set forth that would show just a little growth (healing) even at this time.

You see. In a nutshell, when it comes to a breakup, it is you who have to live with this decision for the rest of this age or life. Man or woman, this person was once the sun or moon in your life and projects, they still deserve kindness overall, even though they may be getting on your very last nerve at times. (Smile)

Kindness is not a weakness. Perceptive Readers have gathered that even the ultimate powerful mind of The Grand Creator himself shows this to be true by doing good for people who don’t even like or acknowledge him. The prophet Jesus exhibited that same benevolent spirit to such a degree that some people were puzzled by it and didn’t appreciate such a vision.

Well how much more so for someone who was and still may be unique to you. When the Breakup is what you feel is the only option, then still hope the best for the person to receive whatever it is he|she needs even though it is no longer with you. Then move on. Yes, Move On.

After hearing Jasmine sing “Old Friends” Live at the TODAY Show, Kathie Lee and Hoda made comments to such an excellent degree about Jasmine Thompson’s music, in my ears and imaginative mind, it turned into extended applause for this touching song.

In this video, take note of Kathie Lee’s introduction. Jasmine’s personal YouTube channel. The efforts to share her music with others have produced impressive results.
Please, by all means, listen to Hoda’s, this new mom, feel the feels expressions about Jasmine’s song Old Friends!
Jasmine Thompson – Today Show Live -Old Friends

‘Old Friends’ owns the feel sounds of a professional songstress with decades of experience. The official video for the song is one for personal memorabilia. Do you have a special spot in your heart for a song like this one? Though she is less than two decades old, Jasmine takes her seasoned sound and topics to another level when she sings live as you saw with the TODAY Show performance.

You certainly hear the genuineness of sound; or as some say, “True That.” Jasmine’s music is enjoyed by ones with years of living experience because they appreciate the ‘trueness’ of her songs and singing style.

Old Friends is a song on the Wonderland Album.

You can now take the opportunity to read more insightful words on the Wonderland album.
Jasmine Thompson’s Song Meanings in Wonderland

This excerpt is taken from the JASMINE THOMPSON: QUEEN OF THE TEENAGE ANTHEM article published in LADYGUNN Magazine. A print + online publication with headquarters in New York, Los Angeles, and Stockholm. An independent publication with emphasis on music, people and fashion.
http://ladygunn.com/music/jasmine-thompson-queen-of-the-teenage-anthem

“Old Friends” copes with the transition from carefree childhood friendships, where trust and understanding come easily, to adult relationships, which sometimes ring hollow and bend toward the world of networking.

She sings, “Somebody told me to light up every room / Make them remember you / But nobody here knows what I’m going through.” It’s about the end of an era of innocence, and about realizing that you’re no longer expected merely to be yourself, but to present yourself as others wish to see you.

Tracks like “Someone’s Somebody” and “Words” tackle young love and navigating relationships and heartbreak. Sure, Thompson is a teenager, but this album isn’t only for her peers. These lyrics are so true and telling of both the struggles and the sense of wonder we all experienced growing up. It’s nostalgic. It’s heartrending and uplifting all at once. It’s comforting and familiar, no matter what your age, because, as Thompson says, “no one stops growing up.”

2020 Gratitude with an Equestrian Flair

2020 Gratitude with an Equestrian Flair

This article was originally posted on January 2, 2020

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Back on December 30, 2011, after a year of writing books and blogging, I wrote an open thank you blog article to the ones who had been following me at that time. This is how the very first paragraph started:

“Hello Everyone, Twitter & Facebook Contacts, No one likes to be taken for granted wouldn’t you agree? And with that being said, know that I thank you for your support this past year. Whether you are one of my Twitter and Facebook contacts, and additional networks contacts; your interest is appreciated.”

In it, I addressed my Twitter followers; did you know you could only tweet a 140 characters back then?
I also thanked my Facebook followers. Though you don’t hear me talk about it much, there is an official facebook.com/Pocbooks

And as I mentioned in the onset, “No one likes to be taken for granted” In addition to that thought, you do not have to accept derogatory labels from any person who says otherwise. Why? Because they may have lost insight into what respect, dignity, and honoring a person means.

Even when they are not your immediate neighbor (or best friend).

With that said, here is another statement from 2011:

“A great shout out has to go to the Twitter and Facebook users’ United Kingdom crew, and you know who you are! Your expressions give me a perspective on your friendships, family, and idioms of the land. It has been a pleasure.”

Special mentions went out to these groups as well!

The writers
authors
freelancers
The men and women of youthful power

To this group, this year, I want to thank the equestrians. Over the past year, or has it been two now? My goodness. I’ve featured Gracie Tyte (pony_nuts) YouTube channel in the Product of Culture website’s sidebar and shared a lot of her links on all my social media sites. Hey, I even shared them in the pocbooks app! (Released in November 2019) Right now the app is back in redesign mode

Gracie has caused me, I’m not alone in this, to laugh over the past two years, and caused my mind to think as well. I’ve learned points about horses I did not know; but she sure does. She is also a strong uplifting spirit when it comes to treating people with dignity. So in conclusion, I once again want to thank Gracie for the equestrian ( Pony Nuts Shop ) and experiences content creation. I want to also thank all you readers who enjoy and share this content with others!

Have a successful 2020 year and beyond. We are talking about forever here!

2020 Gratitude with an Equestrian Flair; share you happiness and smile with others today!

Word of Mouth 2020

Word of Mouth Advertising is natural when you like something.

If you are a VP in marketing, you certainly know the value in Word of Mouth advertising.

It is almost like you can’t put a price tag, even though we do, on a person genuinely liking your product or song and want to share it with the world!

This Article was repaired or refurbished on February 17, 2020. It was originally posted on December 29, 2019. Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

This is what people mean when they say, “ For the most part, people hear about me naturally, or organically.” Talk about a ROI (return on investment); it can be ten fold when we carry out the following steps:

A) If you are using analytics, see who your customers are and what it is about the product or song they like. Give assurances, when in conversation, the quality they expect will always be there.

B) How do you get people to become a word-of-mouth ambassador for you? Customer service is the key. Companies have departments whose sole purpose is to take care of requests (orders) and complaints. After the interaction with the service, the customer often has the opportunity to fill out a survey. It is a great feeling getting a thumbs up and 100% rating! What happens after your customer leaves? When someone is looking to buy the item you have, they may recommend your brand right away.

Sounds like a winner right?

Yet, guess what, word of mouth makes it a win, win!

Here is what I mean. It is one thing to do exactly what was requested of you; and even better when you do something that wasn’t requested.

Like sporadically talking about the product in relaxed settings.

Showing an interest in your customer’s interest besides the product. For example, if your customer has a child; just by mentioning how nicely(or neatly) dressed the child is to the parent, may be the kind word they both need that day.

Another example, if you are a musician, there are several ways of taking an interest at your meet and greets. Ask fans where they are traveling from… Do they have fields in music or outside of music they love to share with people? Be prepared to get an ear full on that one.

Your manager or social media manager in the above areas can do wonders for you in this area when you are not in concert mode. From fine dinning, to meeting a person for the first time, people like to ask what you do? After you give the less than a paragraph answer to them, allow them a moment to digest it. If they want to know more, then some will ask.

Keep in mind, it is better to leave them with a helpful neighbor experience. They will remember you and what you do. Especially, at the end of the conversation when they desire to take a card from you. It makes it easier for them to relate information about you and services with the next person organically. Here it is, you will not have to ask them to do it. The experience in talking with you gave them a meaningful interaction.

like how Entrepreneur.com states it:

Word-of-mouth is triggered when a customer experiences something far beyond what was expected. Slightly exceeding their expectations just won’t do it. You’ve got to go above and beyond the call of duty if you want your customers to talk about you.

Gratitude for Twitter and Facebook Contacts

Hello Everyone, Twitter & Facebook Contacts, No one likes to be taken for granted wouldn’t you agree? And with that being said, know that I thank you for your support this past year. Whether you are one of my Twitter and Facebook contacts, and additional networks contacts; your interest is appreciated

Twitter and Facebook Thank you

At first, I thought I would send this through Twitter to each of you but it is a little more than a 140 characters. A great shout out has to go to the Twitter and Facebook users’ United Kingdom crew, and you know who you are! Your expressions give me a perspective on your friendships, family, and idioms of the land. It has been a pleasure.

The photographers

Through your eyes and camera lenses you continue to make the saying come alive that a picture is worth a thousand words. Whether it is natural ability or through training you have acquired such skill, it is evident that your heart is involved too. Thank you for sharing some of your works with me.

The writers, authors, and freelancers

What can I say, there is a kindred spirit running through people such as you. In paying attention to details, you have shared information through your stories and articles that are sometimes overlooked, or not viewed as important. They may even be considered little things. However, you realize the importance of little things to tell a story. The artistically inclined recognizes a masterpiece starts with a brush stroke and often requires well-placed touch ups for details. Thank you for the interest and advice.

The men and women of youthful power

Youth is a time for enjoyment and at the same time finding out what truly is important for you to be successful in life. I value your thoughts, feedback, and opinions too. And one thing I have come to appreciate about young people is your ability and sincerity. Your expressions show you are thinkers; no one will take that away from you. You may agree, at times, that physically your body still matures faster than your emotional maturity. Something your parents well know. You keep these things in mind because you will be an adult soon enough. Then you may express at times it is not all it is cracked up to be with the added responsibilities. (Little humor there) All the same, I’ve appreciated reading your feedback and reports. I’ve considered it a privilege.

In closing, from the bottom of my heart, I wish globally all the best Twitter and Facebook contacts in your goals and in what truly matters.

Perceptive Readers and Sci-fi interests.
