Art and Music Laura Farre Rozada

In part 1 of Art and Music Journey in The Mind, it states: “Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for (art and music) play.” Well, along with part 2 (Laura Farre Rozada) on this subject, there is an experience that I describe as superb! You can believe there are others who feel the same way.

First, let’s talk more about the next music section of this article.

Art and Music Journey in the Mind Part 2

There are more musical instruments than most people can readily name — can we say music college majors? How many of us know in depth these categories of instruments?

  • Keyboard
  • Guitar
  • Percussion
  • Brass
  • Bowed strings
  • Woodwind

If you are like me, the first three in the list subconsciously come to mind, while the others require more thought. Depending on which maestro you are talking with and their interesting background culture, they will break the above 6 categories down on such a granular level that can leave your mind wondering for a bit.

Do you have a favorite instrument? Do you know how to play it? If you have a social media account, feel free to share this article with the instrument you play. Hey, some of you can share it on Instagram with your recital or band photos.

Did you know this about the pocbooks.com commentaries?

The musicians highlighted here show skills in voice, instruments, and production. Their style is who they are and yet; like with most humans, own diverse qualities to varying degrees that encompass colors of warmth and connection.

Poetry – Instruments of the Soul
There are times when a guitar just will not do.
Those moments may be many or be few.
The flute may get the attention.
After a while, there is something else that could be mentioned.
The piano may be suggested to be so bold.
However, it is the harp’s ability to soothe the soul.

Piano Masterworks Alive Laura Farre Rozada

What a superb performance! Have you ever said that after a show? Please allow me to share with you a performance myself and about fifty to eighty (the comfortable seating venue) others were able to enjoy!

The award-winning pianist and mathematician

Laura Farré Rozada

She completed her Master of Music degree as the Royal College of Music in London.

The audience that night was cordially — lively and quite a few of them specialized in fields of technical, medical and music. One composer I had an opportunity to chat with after the performance stated Laura is of high quality and a “virtuoso.”

In my brief meeting with her, I found her personality to be in the same expressions of her moving pianist skills displayed that evening. What do I mean? Allow me to explain from some of my notes I jotted down. Though I had planned on just taking it all in for an evening of food, wine, good conversation, and music; when Laura Farré Rozada started playing, I could not help but pick up my pocket sized square journal to take notes.

Laura Farré Rozada First Album

The French Reverie is Laura’s first solo album
From Spain, France, Germany, Canada, Bulgaria, and UK; her performances have been well received. Remember the virtuoso comment mentioned.

These sentiments are elaborated on here…

Musicology and Symmetry merges with Laura Farré Rozada

The pianist Laura merges sounds, beats, and music; I am not just talking as a figure of speech either. There were times when she tapped on the piano like they were bongo drums. If you think I’m kidding, I’m not. I heard from three persons who get to enjoy the arts on this level every month of the year say, in so many words, she was a new experience for them.

What a classical experience!

Every keystroke pulsated through her face and cheeks. Laura’s fingers moves at the speed of twilight. Her lips curl to give the instruments voice.
As her hair joins the chorus, the flocks starts flowing to the unseen melody of the air!
Product of Culture

The above describes the opening of her performance’s first song.

Fractuals are Real in Her Music

A Professor in computer science while in conversation with me during intermission, stated: I started seeing fractals (Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales) in her music. Yet there is still quite something I’m still missing or looking for here.

My response with a lighthearted smile: “It is on a metaphysical and 5th dimension level.”

You could see the eureka light bulb come on in his head. “Yes, that is what I was looking for.”

Note in Details: I used the term metaphysical because I ascertained he would have more of a comprehensive view of what I was stating; rather than just saying my favorite word, “Spiritual.” The term 5th dimension also was referenced because from his expert analysis or opinion for some of his deeply contemplated expressions, you could discern he was in Quantum physics’ mode. To observe him during the performance before the intermission truly showed me the power and enlightening effect Laura’s music had on the audience.

More Listening Observations of this Pianist

Laura Farre Rozada allows every note, every vibration of molecules play out in parts of her composition.

See and hear her perform the music composition Sacrifice

There were moments when the anguish of this piece was on her face. The audience’s reaction had persons bowing their heads up and down not just in the rhythm; but yes, yes, I understand what your are saying. I feel what you are saying. One distinguish gentleman at certain pitches was placing his hands together… He closed his eyes… Was there dew drops of moisture on his eyelids?

Turning around to look at the audience, they were remembering family and events in their lives that meant a lot to them.

The Meaning We Realize

At moments, Laura would allow the last stroke of the keys fade away as she looks softly at them; it is though she is making love with music. Such a gift along with her excellent timing and precision, Laura Farre Rozada is a masterful pianist gem.

A COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Jasmine Thompson’s ‘Colour’ EP — Review & Commentary

Have you read the Exclusive | Billboard Jasmine Thompson’s Colour EP.

Have you listened to the Colour album? What about the music videos accompanying this album? Here on the Product of Culture website we will talk about all of it. First, I want to mention a Billboard Exclusive for you.

The Colour EP came out on April 5, 2019.

Billboard mentions all the instruments that makes this such a wonderful album! And it makes supporters of Jasmine feel proud of her writing skills in collaboration with the producer Eg White.

Adele and Sam Smith are additional notable names where he used his talents in album production.

Billboard gives us this bit of news about the song “Loyal,” How it is so heartfelt.
In this song we hear horns, percussion, and piano instruments.

As I have stated in the onset, and before in conversation, use of such instruments on the Colour EP gives a 1920s sound to it. I originally stated it sounds like the mid 1900s to present day.

In the next section I will talk on the subject of what this album will mean for some readers here including myself. This means I will be including statements from Billboard’s exclusive with Jasmine Thompson. What these songs mean for her as a singer and songwriter.

It will be made clear when I quote her interview and when I am in my assessment or commentary mode.

It is my hope you will enjoy the full production music and lyrics videos placed in this article. At the conclusion of this reading, you will also have links to Jasmine’s channels like Spotify, Official website, and stores.

There is also the professional manager of the Official Jasmine Thompson Fan Site. His name is Stefan. The links to all these social accounts will be in a well put together section near the end of this article.

Thank you for visiting and sharing the Product of Culture website with your friends and family! Shall we begin with The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson Commentary?

“Loyal” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Billboard Exclusive | Jasmine states:
Loyal was written in two parts. I was in a relationship that was great, so I decided to write a couple of verses about our story. Eg came up with the first round of chords and I said to him, “It would be incredible if we could get a sort of brassy sound for the song.” Eg, being Eg, pulled out a saxophone that I had never seen, and began to play the main line and put it through a vocoder…After 6 months, we got back in to finish the song. I had gotten out of the relationship and thought that we should add more to the end. Eg had added this beautiful piano breakdown to the song and I was so excited. I think it really reflected the change in perspective about my relationship. This song definitely opened doors for how we approached the production of the rest of the EP.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

People love people and people love animals. These are the sentient or conscious living creatures that need each other’s loyalty. Without it, where would we be? You see, being loyal causes us to stick with another through hard times even when they are:

Treating me like dirt!”

Have you ever heard some one say that about another person?

Then maybe you were the one who replied,

“Loyal like a dog.”

Present and past owners have experienced on days they were not feeling their best and could not walk their family pet, he/she would bring you the leash/collar and give a light bark to remind you it was time for that one mile walk or jog.

When you stayed in the bed your faithful companion licked you to see if that would work. Now, for some of your animal family connections, tell the rest of us if you experienced this:
“Angel, I’m really not feeling well today,” or “I’m sick.” The response to your feeling ill, a “Woof, with a whine”

Then, if you allowed it, your faithful companion jumped up on the bed to protect and comfort you all day. The missed walk forgotten and forgiveness granted all in less than one billionth of a second; if not that long.

Your inability to fulfill your responsibility to your family pet, did not stop he or she from fulfilling their loving role to you.

Jasmine Thompson is a sensitive soul. Just take a look at her real life thoughts on matters. In the song “loyal,” you know for sure that even though her relationship took the turn for the worst she would honor the “light” or all that was special about it. Indeed, precious about it.

In times past, this one writer, who sometimes talked with people having marital difficulties would say to each joined couple:

“What is it that made you fall in love with this person in the first place?” Sometimes it took more than a few minutes to receive the answer from both. But after some tears, well the ladies would cry, and the men just had dust in their eyes. Even though, we were in a class 1 clean area environment living room. Somehow the atom size particle in the room found its way into the men eyes.
After heartfelt reflection by the both, it served as a motivator for them to honor that period of light where they were “head over heels” for one another as a cultural idiom goes. Yes, “bent over backwards” to take care of one another with understanding.

“More” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Before the EP went to mix, we were a little bit unsure of how to finish this song and resolve it properly. When I was 16, I wrote a song that had a very similar concept, but I never did anything with it. It was just hidden in my voice memos for two to three years. I’ve always wanted to have a secret track, where you have to wait a while after the end of a song and then a whole new little song appears. We dropped the voice note at the end of the song and I crossed it off my bucket list.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

“More” is a song that sings about a range of adult feelings. Jasmine is at that age between 18 and 21 when they are doing more than thinking about the romance of life as a fairy tale, but how it requires hard work at times to learn the give and take of it all. How willing are each of us to approach a special personality in our life with all humility and say what is needed to help that person with whatever it is they sincerely need in life?
In this age we live in, often people have to talk so much about being tough in this “cruel world” that we lose a sensitivity to others needs and the humility to even give it.

How do you Perceptive Readers feel about this?
As teenagers grow up, there is still an importance to maintain a childlike attitude; not naivety, but maintain the humility to ask and be willing to do what will help your significant other. This helps in all relationships, but especially when two people already have quite a bit in common.
How much More will you give for what is needed?

Jasmine Thompson — more [Official Lyrics]

Here is the Live Band singing “More” in video number 2

“Some People” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

This song took us a really long time to finish production. It started off as a very chilled song, which is based on trying to make sure a friend knows that they are loved. Eg and I didn’t feel like we could nail the production on our own, so we started to look at bringing another producer in. [U.K. producers] MEZZ really helped us see the song in a different light.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

Just like what you have read in the ‘More’ section, Jasmine talks about trying to make sure a friend knows they are loved.

I love this song, I more than identify with what Jasmine shows us in this moving music video production of this song. Yes, it is making a powerful statement; yet with Jasmine’s voice, you hear a yearning and sincere desire to help.

Something to keep in mind when someone you meet has been betrayed; saying and trying to force them to trust you just because you smile or are now running in the same circle together is not going to cut it for everyone. It depends on how often they’ve been betrayed in life and the scar extent of the damage. A lot of people in positions of trust know this to be true. Positions of trust, meaning professional caregivers, in fields from the medical to the spiritual responsibilities.

It does not mean you have to be a professional in a position of trust to know or learn this as a friend. It means you do have a reference point of experience to call upon if it does not come naturally to you.

Jasmine said MEZZ really helped them to see the “Some People” song in a different light, and we certainly appreciate the insight MEZZ brought to the table. From group gatherings, to intimate conversations, that you and your friend both need. There is a time for everything. A time to be sociable in large crowds and a time for private conversation.
For the friend that has more of a quiet or introverted personality, he or she will often gain so much more a happy feeling of value from one true friend, then a hundred acquaintances. This too, sage (experienced) like persons in positions of trust know and understand this to be the case as well. Inasmuch, make application in the manner with a cause no further harm desire.
Remember there is a time for everything. As you find the balance, more than one friend will find your presence a blessing, as the cultural expressions goes which is based in principle.

“Take Care” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Normally, verse melodies start lower, so you don’t give away the lift of the chorus. But on this day, I really wanted to try something new and use my falsetto more. The original demo was a lot higher, so it all sounded very petite and floaty. This song was very close to not being on the EP…We finished this song on the night before going to mix. It was so nerve wracking, I have never been so excited and stressed at the same time while trying to finish this song before the deadline. It felt so good, going home at 2:00 a.m. after spending the whole day trying to solve the puzzle.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

I found it interesting that “Take Care” almost did not make it on the EP. Do you hear the anguish is Jasmine’s voice singing this song? Let me tell you, with one more cultural expression, “We need to wrap that up” tone and singing style “and sell it in a bottle” so everyone can sing like that. You can be sure I am chuckling while saying this to others.
I one time, oh I mean my friend, tried to hit a note like Jasmine, and let me tell you, even the lions at the zoo ran into their cages.

The song, Take Care, shows the depth of a woman’s love. Make no mistake about it, over the years, you heard stated here about the marvelous ways we are created. Women have been bestowed with talents and insights that deepen the more they love you. Not that men don’t possess these qualities, because they most certainly do. However, from an early age you will see the female gender have or develop these sensitive and loyal qualities at a faster pace.

It is the nurturing mindset. This is why when you hear Jasmine sing:

Take care please remember There’s an always open door Come back to me Come back to me Take care go and be that That stupid man I know Give your love away Then come back for me

A lot of men, have heard similar sentiments. That is; the mental challenge part Jasmine is referencing.
Yes, some men find out the first year of marriage what a mental challenge it is by their mature wife! Though I am making light-hearted statements about the first year of couples, there are hurtful situations that happen in some relationships where the anguish that Jasmine is able to place in this song is heard from either one or both mates.

Here is the point. A lot of women inner desire is to still reconcile if the man’s desire is there as well. Yet, as one family member may say, “But you better straighten up and fly right.”

Take care (Official Live video)

PLACEHOLDER

“Amen” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

This song is probably two years old, or more. We wrote this song with so much passion and it was a very emotional day. [The] original demo was a lot more aggressive and it kind of blew your ears off, so when we had the week to finish of production, we tried to see how else we could decorate the song. It had always been a very negative and melancholic song, but that week, something new had clicked into place. I could suddenly hear a happier, more jumpy version. We started experimenting with table harps and different melody lines and it all fell into place.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

You know what? I love Jasmine’s new album; however, I love, love, this song. Really, then, I want to know how can I buy the rights to this song, like the way I purchased the COLOUR EP on the Apple store.
Okay, this may be a little too much. Still, I used a form of hyperbole to express just how much I like this song. One day, I may be able to hit the Amen note, I sure say it enough.

And those horns!

Amen, so be it, let it be written and let it be done. It is my whole mind’s agreement with heart strings pulled, this song and the whole EP shows us that Jasmine’s voice has a special quality of sound. Her writing utilizes her ability to share her story to us in ways we most certainly can relate, no matter what the year we were born in that makes us an adult with a childlike innocence (without naivety) in age.

In conclusion, I just want to share this is the second EP I have purchased of Jasmine’s craft. Even though she is a singer, in my mind, I know she can out marvelous feats with her voice. It is a beautiful thing to sooth someone with healing words and cause people to feel happy with the tongue period.
Another one of life’s gifts.

I want to once again thank the Jasmine Official Fanpage for the use of the images on the Product of Culture website over the past couple of years.

Profound Reading on Mark Twain Classic

Welcome to Profound Reading on Mark Twain

James’ Commentary Opening

If you possessed Kingly riches, where your coffers will never be empty during your lifetime, how would you use the abundance of funds at your fingertips?
Untold billions viewed money throughout history as being a source of power. Would you disagree with such an assessment?
Whether you would or not, the strong desire to acquire money and power have at times changed people personalities.
However, the wise men and women who possess both realize it is vital for them never to lose their humanity.
Humanity is synonymous with compassion, sympathy, and understanding.

Profound Reading on Mark Twain Classic
The Prince and Pauper
Author Mark Twain
Public Domain Literature (Published in 1881-82)

A story that has been told and written over the years about a prince. And a pauper; a very poor person.
In some classes, it has been considered required reading in abridged or whole form for decades.

You may find this classic story resonates with you as it once did a young lad; so much so, that the lad still recalls a heartfelt lesson learned by both the prince and the pauper. What effect did their experience have upon them?

For the rest of the summer, this literature classic will be posted in sections here for your RSS feed & Perceptive Readers subscribers.
By the way, I will also travel with you by reading this scholastic classic for fun damental reading. Smile

Be informed of this significant note. The English and vocabulary in the Prince and the Pauper consist of archaic (Outdated) phrases and idioms – expressions, dialect, or style of speaking in culture or time period. Today, writers rarely use Mark Twain’s storytelling style; if ever.
I will do the legwork for you in some cases by providing the definition or idiom meaning in aesthetically pleasing ways. The Product of Culture website is pleased to bring you this Mark Twain’s classic: The Prince and the Pauper

Chapter 1 The Prince and the Pauper
Word Meanings: Did you know gay in its original first form of usage meant happiness and cheerfulness?

Let us begin:

In the ancient city of London, on a certain autumn day in the second quarter of the sixteenth century, a boy was born to a poor family of the name of Canty, who did not want him. On the same day another English child was born to a rich family of the name of Tudor, who did want him. All England wanted him too. England had so longed for him, and hoped for him, and prayed God for him, that, now that he was really come, the people went nearly mad for joy. Mere acquaintances hugged and kissed each other and cried.

Everybody took a holiday, and high and low, rich and poor, feasted and danced and sang, and got very mellow; and they kept this up for days and nights together. By day, London was a sight to see, with gay banners waving from every balcony and housetop, and splendid pageants marching along.

By night, it was again a sight to see, with its great bonfires at every corner, and its troops of revellers making merry around them. There was no talk in all England but of the new baby, Edward Tudor, Prince of Wales, who lay lapped in silks and satins, unconscious of all this fuss, and not knowing that great lords and ladies were tending him and watching over him—and not caring, either. But there was no talk about the other baby, Tom Canty, lapped in his poor rags, except among the family of paupers whom he had just come to trouble with his presence.

People to Remember
“Think about their names and station in life.”
Tom Canty
Edward Tudor

Allow me to Share a Thought
The English and vocabulary in the Prince and the Pauper consist of archaic (outdated) phrases and idioms (expressions, dialect, or style of speaking in culture or time period). Today, writers rarely use Mark Twain’s story telling style; if ever.

Until next time: remember, if you read something that improves your life for the better, it becomes your reality. Turn the page 2 on Profound Reading on Mark Twain Classic

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 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).

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.

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.

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.

Dan Gow just seems like one chilled out dude. And  yet he is such a rocker when it comes to music. Did you know: The Against the Current YouTube channel didn’t gain many subscribers until he, Chrissy, and Will released their first single “Thinking.”

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.
— Chrissy Costanza (@ChrissyCostanza) September 23, 2018

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. (Just an extended thought on how love is rejected from some PSALMS 109: 4-5)

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.

Shirley Setia Exciting Articles

Welcome to Shirley Setia Articles.
Over the years, this writer’s experience dealt in the relating of facts in real life scenarios and technology. When I placed the Product of Culture Brand aka POCBOOKS.com online back in 2010, it fulfilled my desire to share “Fictional Books of Another Kind.”  Which allowed me to share the fun stories to the public that required you to think all the same.

In addition to the above, there are musicians I followed on social media at one time or another; in the process, I wrote articles and events about their music. It not only honed my skills as a writer but also as a podcaster. Still, the top reason is because I appreciate their God given talents. You will appreciate why Shirley Setia’s singing voice is appreciated by… can we say hundreds of thousands by now?

Tu Hi Tha Official Female Version Sang By Shirley Setia

Published by James Lynch on February 19, 2017

Tu Hi Tha The Official Female Version Song By Shirley Setia!

Shirley Setia continues to portray emotional complexity in her music in ways that must never be lost in any culture or society. Shirley is musically and wonderfully translating a heart-wrenching situation faced by a man and woman-in-love in more languages than Hindi. Shirley, with her singing background uses music to translate the heart’s desire. Yes, the heartbreak in this movie is identified, and the songstress Shirley Setia is telling us all about it which touches us. Even hoping for couples ever facing this to try and reconcile— somehow. Is there a way?

What a major collaboration production team (Web Talkies) Simran Mundi, Omkar Kapoor, and Shirley Setia make! Please note further Shirley’s smiling request.

In Shirley’s announcement:

Hey everyone,

The Talented Shirley Setia in Jab Koi Baat

Shirley Setia in Jab Koi Baat #JabkoiBaat

The Talented Shirley Setia in Jab Koi Baat

Before we view the most significant romantic single of the year ‘Jab Koi Baat’ with Shirley Setia & Atif Aslam prominently featured, let us dive into several others who made such a grand music production as this; shall we?

The Talents in and around the Scenes

Music: DJ Chetas
Lyrics: Indeevar
Director: David Zennie
Produced by: Champak Jain & Girish Jain
Executive Producer: Chetas Shah, Gaurav Chawla (On Stage Talents)
Mix & Master: Lijo George
Styled by: Saachi Ramchandani
Production Agency: Disruptive Media
Promotions: Aayushman Sinha (On Stage Talents)
Special Thanks: Vicky Tulsyan Mourjo Chatterjee

On Stage Talents

Aayushman Sinha, On Stage Talents, is a manager I’ve observed over the past year or so for several reasons. Most assuredly, it is one of his signed talented artists, Shirley Setia, that caught my ears attention (Special Shout out to KHS Kurt Hugo Schneider for the May 2016 collaboration with Shirley).

You see, Aayushman Sinha has a motto that motivates him in everything he does for his business and artists.

“Our motto is to take our artists from their current position and work towards developing and nurturing their talent along with effective marketing and business management of the artists. Our artist management services include – Bookings, Talent Development, Endorsements, PR & Marketing, Co-Creating IP’s, Curation and Programming, Production, Music Management and Tour Management.”

With the above motto/mission statement; Aayushman Sinha allows his signed artists freedom to express their ideas and talents in more than just singing and music production. Artists are often wired (if you will) in a certain way that is not conducive to micro-managing style, but they need the freedom to think (even though their meditation periods take longer than others), to express, and experiment. Aayushman Sinha, over the past two years, shows he not only understands this aspect of musically inclined personality types, he whole heartily supports it. In return, artists signed with him possess a genuineness in their music and expressions because it continues to be nurtured by Aayushman Sinha. SEE TEDx Talks Not Just Another Number In The Roll Call.

The Talented Shirley Setia

There have been quite a number of reports on Shirley Setia here at the Product of Culture website.
But you know, there is one quote that I think and feel needs to be shared annually, if not more often, about Shirley’s music. What is it?

“Shirley Setia continues to portray emotional complexity in her music in ways that must never be lost in any culture or society.”

Do you have a favorite quote of your own about Shirley Setia’s singing style?

The Highlight of The Evening!

It is a pleasure to now feature this film and music production of a Bollywood Love Song.

T-Series Mixtape – Shirley Setia and Jubin Nautiya

Published  on July 1, 2017

T-Series Mixtape – Shirley Setia and Jubin Nautiya

The T-Series Mixtape will move your lips to express “BRAVO” when viewing “Kings Goa presents T-Series Mixtape powered by Saavn. Saavn brings to you the fourth mix from the series is between Tu Jo Mila and Raabta in the voice of Shirley Setia and Jubin Nautiya”

Shirley Setia and Jubin Nautiyal may have you asking What is the name of their band? Long time fans of Shirley and Jubin will inform you that they are not together in a band. When talented singers like these two perform together the smooth chemistry of music they create then compels new music listeners to exclaim, What? They are not in a band; then maybe they should be?

The above weighing of reasons highlight what makes T-Series Mixtape the place for your ears and eyes to be. Yes, T-Series is in the days of Summer, can YOU say HOT?;  mode by bringing India’s (Indo-Kiwi; Hindi musician vocals) finest artists together.

T-Series Mixtape – Shirley Setia and Jubin Nautiya

Appreciating the Experience of Shirley Setia & Jubin Nautiyal

We do not need to know the singer’s intimate background to enjoy their music. However, when you become aware of a musician’s biographic, history of struggles included, and present personality makeup, it enhances the appreciation for his and hers music that much more.

Justin Bieber said more than once, something to this effect: ” It is about the music.” This public statement came after a time when he had given considerable thought about perception; namely, his experiences with all sorts of people.

Justin Bieber Mashup – KHS (The Producer) Features Shirley Setia

What I gathered from watching his interviews and movie Never Say Never, ( Have you ever read the article 10 Things Teenagers Should Know About Justin Bieber? –POCBOOKS ) is that Justin earnestly requested others to place whatever each of us may feel about his personal, though not private, growing pains and mistakes, could we just put that aside and enjoy the music.

Why do I reference what this has to do with musicians and performers like Shirley Setia and Jubin Nautiyal?

When a person who sincerely attempts to bring joy to the populace through the profession of making music, the spotlight is not only on their music but also the personality that produces the music. The core individual of who this person is shines to others through the music they create. The agony, triumphs, and love (seen and unseen) they share with others.

Shirey Setia possesses this gift.  A comment on  Tu Hi Tha Official Female Version Sang By Shirley Setia at this website states this:  “Shirley Setia continues to portray emotional complexity in her music in ways that must never be lost in any culture or society. Shirley is musically and wonderfully translating a heart-wrenching situation faced by a man and woman-in-love in more languages than Hindi. Shirley, with her singing background, uses music to translate the heart’s desire.”

Let’s place impetus on ’emotional complexity.’ 

What music has done, and continues to do for listeners is to provide a deeply moving experience of emotions and thoughts in their hearts that bridge a connection between hearts and minds of the Creator. Music, in the hands (voice) of experienced musicians like Shirley Setia & Jubin Nautiyal, becomes something special to listening audiences.  Their diverse background comes together and forms an outstanding tapestry of music! Where our hearts outburst Bravo! Bravo! We experienced this beautiful music on T-Series Mixtape first; where we can clap a little longer for them featuring Shirley and Jubin; Bravo T-Series Mixtape! Bravo!

Product of Culture  Madilyn Bailey

Some may view this as a reader’s digest; while I am resigned to look at this as a journal of sorts. Therefore, you are welcome to this distinctive feature of the website as it suits you.

A Writer’s Thoughts

Have you ever heard someone say this to another? “You are certainly a product of culture.” From poetry and literature, to music and dance, to art, just to name a few; all these things make up a civilized society. Yes, when people have safe places to create and store their end products of ingenuity, then such things are preserved and have become a part of Western and Eastern cultures down to this day.

Those are just some of my thoughts from a busy week. March is now here, and we can enjoy some 2018 happenings with some of my musicians featured here that you just can’t help but feel a fondness for when you listen to their hearts. Their heart sparkles in the music they create.

The Songstress Madilyn Bailey

Madilyn Bailey Just when you think you know Her.

Shawna Hudson, of Sweetyhigh.com, has found out “Madilyn Bailey Proves Her Talent Goes Far Beyond YouTube Cover Songs.”

Madilyn’s fans, from the beginning, have stuck with this Boyceville, Wisconsin Gal through the years for this very reason. She often expresses what her conscience and emotions are feeling at the present time. In other words, she desires to be honest with you.

I’ve mentioned here what this musician and singer is capable of accomplishing on the global scale.

Madilyn Bailey Unique Singing Voice

Hence, for this article, I would like for us to reference a few statements from a different interviewer who has  listening experience with her music.

First, shall we enjoy together “Tetris” Madilyn’s new official music video in 2018?

Madilyn Bailey – Tetris (Official Music Video)

Shawna Hudson of Sweetyhigh knows a little bit more about Madilyn Bailey.

“Shawna is a writer from Los Angeles, California who basically lives on the internet. All she really needs to be happy in life are Netflix, good memes and good music. The best part of her job is writing about crafty ways to DIY (pun intended) and amazing food. Follow her on twitter @shawnasimonee”

Well, Shawna brought out fun facts about Madilyn Bailey. Facts like how she acquired experience as a certified nursing assistant. Therefore, when she says, “I will take care of you.” By George; I think she really means it! (Cultural idiom)

Shawna also named Madilyn’s instruments of her musician’s craft. The guitar, piano, drums and the ukulele. If you have not had a chance to hear Madilyn perform with any one of these instruments, all you have to do is check out her YouTube Channel.

Did you also know about these facts Shawna placed in her article?

*This singer has five siblings, three of which were adopted. Family gatherings, especially during holiday season, must be one giant party at their house.

*She also filmed a video called Songwriters on Songwriting with the amazing Bridgit Mendler and we’re in pop music heaven because of it.

So did you read something new? Do you know something you did not know before about Madilyn? Well, it certainly does not have to stop here. Singing is in her veins; so another one of those sayings go.

If you feel there is something that made you feel good inside, then by all means look through the music presentations of all the Singers and musicians mentioned in this article again and share it with others! Until next time, “When you read something that moves you to improve or change your life for the better, it becomes your reality.” – Product of Culture

Madilyn Bailey The Astounding Wiser EP Album

Published on July 13, 2016

Being the album title name, Madilyn Bailey’s “Wiser” EP has astounded listeners with the first song on the EP. The reasons for the excitement of this songstress’ culture genre of music will be explored in this article.

Thoughts to keep in mind: Maestros are referenced in this section as distinguished music conductors and teachers. They, of course, have their propriety tastes and way of analyzing a musical score. In my perspective, just as an audience listener, the following assessment is what I think a decent number of Maestros will appreciate about Madilyn’s singing ability.

Madilyn Bailey’s Unique Singing Voice

Each person possesses abilities that as such abilities are skillfully developed, then the wielder(owner) of the ability and onlookers come to view it as a gift.

One of Madilyn Bailey’s gifts is her voice range classification.

Madilyn often receives due props for her trademark Falsetto style of singing. Coupled with mezzo-soprano voice classification, she creates tones that maestros could use as an example in their concerts and classes. The maestro’s ear will register how notes and octaves sang by Madilyn can benefit his students of music.

The same Maestro according to his will could invite Madilyn into an orchestrated musical program where her strong singing presence would enhance an extravagant concert showing into gold.

Songwriting— Madilyn Bailey Wiser

Here are a few lyrical lines or stanzas, if you will, from Madilyn’s song. As you read them, take keen note of what images your mind creates from the words.

I thought that it was safe to die inside your arms
I let you in I let you see this naked heart
Lesson learned sometimes love goes behind your back
I guess that’s just the way we find out who we are
Was it all worth it

Wiser

It melts away the price I pay to taste your love
No more shame those embers they just burn to dust
Turning pages bruises fade and I made it through the deep
I earned my stripes from battle cries this skin is thick

We will talk more about Madilyn’s purpose for this album in the next heading.

Madilyn Bailey Wiser has Wisdom

“Wiser is about owning your story”- Madilyn Bailey

Madilyn’s lyrics are made of the experiences writers & poets are often told to go and write a book about them. Name it “Life’s Journey to Maturity,” just as an example.

“Wiser” emanates thoughts of life’s experience. The same way an individual hikes up a high mountain looking for the knowledge of life, Madilyn’s “Wiser” intimates one who is getting closer and closer to the pinnacle goal.

Notice the official Lyrics video of Wiser and how it conveys Madilyn Baily’s application of knowledge through one trial scenario of heartbreak to a crescendo!

“Mad For Madilyn
I’ve been a quiet but fierce fan of Madilyn’s for some time, now. I’ve fallen for her breathy tones and power-house vocals in equal measure. I’ve heard her make songs we all know and love into covers that are unique and completely her own. I’ve bragged about her to all my friends, jammed to her in my car, belted out each catching melody, note for note–and now, I have five NEW songs to brag about, jam to, and sing with! Madilyn is a wordsmith, full of melodic ear-candy, and vocals to die for.  Congrats on an amazing EP, girly!” – Sable Rose (Apple iTunes Website)

Madilyn Bailey Speaks “Wiser” in Love

Madilyn Bailey once said on Social Media that she always try to spread love and positivity in the world. I paraphrased her statement because at the time I did not think to save her words. Still, this is what happened all the same with my thought processes.  Because of reading Madilyn’s words I felt a sincerity vibe and sorrow from her at first.

I wondered what prompted Madilyn to state it in the way she did? Then I thought about some of the things that were happening around the world. Who knows, it could also have been due to personal interactions Madilyn was having with someone or even a group of people.

All the same, my mind recalled something about the human race, love, and questions I’ve asked.

In some cases, even socially, people can drift into the frame of mind of treating all their relationships as a quid pro quo (something for something) instead of doing a kind act or returning the favor in an unselfish way because love motivates them.

“Without love can this world truly be a better place? Could this world improve without it?”

Then, once again, I imagined Madilyn vocalizing her words with the fire and beauty in her heart that we so enjoy hearing in her songs.

Yes, dear Madilyn was expressing words of principal love for you as a brother and sister in the human race. Love allows her to do all sorts of good things for others like you and me as if we are Madilyn’s neighbors.

“Hey Madilyn, may I borrow a cup of sugar?” You say with a neighborly smile.

Well since that time of hearing Madilyn express herself, it has been an honor getting to connect with her through Twitter Social Media. Just look at her Twitter Social Media stream. She says some of the wittiest and funny things at times with such innocence. Seriously, I don’t think she knows just how humorous (laughing with her, not at her.) she is at times in expressing her story and her truth. At the very least, you see her happy moments often expressed in gratitude.

Let us now move on to additional exciting information you may not have read on Madilyn’s music.

Madilyn Bailey’s Interviews & New Music!

“This is a video I have been wanting to make for the longest time because that would mean that my album is finished and the songs that I put on it really mean something to me. Here is a bit about my songwriting process and deeper look into the meaning behind my songs off my Wiser EP.” – M

Special Piano version of “WISER” featuring the remarkable musician and producer KHS  Kurt Hugo Schneider

Madilyn Bailey’s Experience

A fan named Hannah asked Madilyn Bailey, ‘what’s your favorite part about singing?’

She told Hannah, ‘Seeing the faces in the audience taken to a new space in their head they’ve never been.’

Madilyn: ‘Few things leave you with such a unique feeling you can just never forget.’

Madilyn Bailey with a Special Song |Drunk on a Feeling

Madilyn Bailey – Have you ever felt drunk on a feeling? There is a new song from Madilyn where she explores this feeling with us.Madilyn Bailey explains the Drunk on a Feeling song meaning.Madilyn Bailey’s ‘Drunk on a Feeling’ is a ballet that touches your core. The process of gathering her thoughts and placing them on to paper has been talked about by Madilyn before in interviews.It is sweet, however, that she sent out the lyrics meaning update for “Drunk on a Feeling.” She shares a time of sadness with us. Why she was feeling down at the time. This song is pretty special coming from the sensitive voice of her soul.

Drunk on a feeling Lyrics Meaning

Madilyn Bailey Words:

 “I was in a pretty low place in my life when I wrote Drunk on a Feeling a couple of years back. Emotionally I was running low on motivation. Financially we barely could afford to continue making videos for my Youtube channel. I also felt like I was missing a lot of important life events happening back in WI while being in LA.

I had poured everything in me and more into achieving my dreams but I had little to nothing tangible to show for the more than 10 years I‘d put into my work.

I saw people all around me buying big houses, and crazy sports cars, and having beautiful babies, while someone still running a full time business. And for the first time in my entire life the thought hit me, “Am I drunk on a feeling… Am I one of those completely delusional people… What if I’m sacrificing my emotional/ mental state, financial state, my relationships, and putting off having kids for a dream that might never be realized… Am I out of my mind”

Then as I was driving down to Long Beach for this writing session, I started to feel my burdens and pressure melt away.

I often say in LA people build lives and everywhere else people live.  The further outside of LA I got the more I felt this.

For more than 10 years I had unwaveringly believed in and pursued my dreams. and then for a moment, at a low point, I let doubt, fear, and other people’s opinions taint my beautiful dream. I wasn’t drunk on a dream. Dreaming is the most organic thing we can do. What I was drunk on was the LA lifestyle of having to have monetary things to prove the legitimacy of my dream.

My favorite line from this song is “Don’t wake me up cuz I want to know if we can meet in the middle through the eye of the needle.” So what, maybe I am delusional; but even if there is a slight chance that I might not be I will fight for my dreams because I believe in them.”

Take Joy with you and a Red Ribbon.

If you did not already know about Madilyn and her music, I hope this provided value to you. Enjoy this very special and inspirational song released in 2019 by Madilyn with friends in the music video.  Have a wonderful day in your mind and heart!

Lecrae ft. Tori Kelly Performs I’ll Find You – St. Jude Campaign

Published  on July 30, 2017

Lecrae Featuring Tori Kelly Performs I’ll Find You – St. Jude Campaign

How do you say it? “This music by Lecrae – I’ll Find You ft. Tori Kelly, and now the music video got me feeling some kind of way.”

Life, at this present time, is an accumulation of experiences that involves good and bad. We don’t have to go searching for or create adverse events in life; such things come about all on their own. At times there is more than the average struggle to keep conquering such negative things with the good.

One excerpt from poetry goes like this:

L. I. F. E. spells life.
It is filled with ups and downs
Highs and Lows.

Some make it while shouting I did it!

While others struggle from one hour to the next.

There is hurt. There is pain.

Watching a person experience the depths of mental (and physical) trauma is heart-wrenching.

The gentlest of people can at times react abruptly by the experience…

Lecrae Featuring Tori Kelly Performs I’ll Find You

– St. Jude Campaign – Cancer is Abruptly Painful

Cancer can cause pain by growing into or destroying tissue near the cancer. Cancer pain can come from the primary cancer itself — where the cancer started — or from other areas in the body where the cancer has spread (metastases). As a tumor grows, it may put pressure on nerves, bones or organs, causing pain.

– ‘Care That Helps Them To Be Strong!’

Some make it while shouting I did it! Yes, it has been told more times than anyone knows that they needed to get their affairs in order because their life span has been drastically cut short. When we have intimate conversations with the ones diagnosed, they relate (with tears) only several weeks to less than six months. However, due to attentive doctors, nurses, research, family, friends, and a positive; yes even a high spirituality outlook, they are still with us years later!

Oh, the jokes they still share with us. The stories… The art… The comfort they give in return with the measure of recovering strength they now possess. Do you have a child? How blessed you are as your child benefits from a heart full of love and tenderness!

The video “I’ll Find You” by Lecrae & Tori Kelly reminds all of us to value life and our loved ones. But you know something else it hopes we will consider?

That gentle persons will also remember the medical advancements that have been made due to your generous donations. Generous being what YOU donate from the HEART.

Tori Kelly Living in Music

Everybody’s looking for that new thing.” – Tori Kelly (Nobody Love)

Even the strong need a hug sometimes.

Love is often viewed as complicated. Is it? – (Product of Culture)

Tori Kelly’s life in music prompts me to think about the good people do in the world from another unique perspective. It also causes me to meditate on what is behind their smile? Hence the sincere statements made above have come about by viewing excerpts from Tori Kelly’s life and by listening to her music.

Take Tori Kelly’s surprise visit on Laurie Hernandez, Olympics Gold Medal winner for the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team. The initial moment of the two meeting is what you call priceless! The intensity of emotions required no verbal expressions of love; it is quite evident in the video how Laurie Hernandez felt when her eyes fixated on Tori’s bright smile. Additionally, Tori welcomed the opportunity to verbally relate her mutual gratitude of being able to embrace Laurie.

What happened to Us?

One of the saddest things to experience in the world is to see the love in a relationship die. Especially when it did not have to happen. People around the world are having their hearts broken every day. Why? Did these couples know before hand what was going wrong in their relationship?  What exactly was causing the corrosion? In the beginning, oh how they were madly in love; and now they are just mad.

For many, when the loaded words stop flying, and the dust settles, then the sanity returns. The bitter waters of their heart start to turn sweet again. Still, from time to time there may be some residual memories of what was and what could have been? Where did we go wrong? Where did I go wrong? No matter what the situation may have been, while some burn the memorabilia of the no going back relationship, their heart produces a song to sing one last time for this lost love.

Colors of The Wind-With love – Growth, Knowledge, Progress

“Colors of the Wind” was originally recorded by Judy Kuhn as Pocahontas in the same titled movie. Vanessa Williams also released the covered single from the soundtrack in March  1995.

Tori Kelly recorded the song in 2014 which continued the tradition of keeping the meaningful adoration with the words of this song.

How we feel about our raised from childhood values does principally motivates our actions. How do you view people of little-known cultures? How do you treat them? How do you view animals? How do you treat animals?

The song “Colors of the Wind” requests us to think deeply about such questions.

From infancy, when humans are allowed to be taught, yes grasp what is love, they realize it is simple to appreciate and show it in union with all the Colors of the Wind vibrance, and it is the most powerful force of creation in all realms of the universe.

The Heart is Made for Love produces Love

Tori Kelly’s music is a gift. It is obvious she cherishes and enjoys sharing it with others. Music comes from the heart. A heart that is full of love continues to be refreshed and when not placed in a dam; its refreshing overflow gives to all.

In conclusion, there is continued success wished upon Tori and all you kind/tender-hearted ones. Hoping for positive things and peace to always be with you.

“I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologize because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest.” – Azra.T

Introduction to Kurt KHS Articles Volume

Kurt Volume of Articles years 201_ to 2018 Keep in mind, these are not the only article events that were posted about Kurt Hugo Schneider over the years, but they are the ones that received the most attention and viewings.

Let’s start with KURT SCHNEIDER’s news outlets.

Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/kurthschneider

*The Minds.com Blog Version of this article has the titled videos below embedded for your viewing and listening pleasure.*

Kurt has his way of getting the rhythm from his mind on to the instruments. To say he is unique is an understatement. Yes, I am bias, and I’m not ashamed to say it. I loved the way Kurt creates his symphonies for years on video. With a small group of people, to the large, this musician and producer will have you snapping your fingers, stomping your feet, and dancing the night away. He is an example of a producer that brings the best out of the people he works with. You can see the following results on his YouTube channel.

Kurt Hugo Schneider arranged a velvety combination of K-POP bands, songs, music, and dance. While in production, Kurt said this video would be somewhat different.

Kurt Hugo Schneider A Producer of Unlimited Potential

For some years, KHS has produced music videos that make us laugh, cry, and laugh again! Don’t get this writer started. Whenever I take the time to write an artist to inform them of the different commentaries I have posted on the website, I make it a point to state a specific reason why I have featured them.

I made this review of history known to you because when it comes to considering Kurt’s talents and productions, I’ve had to just compile my feelings into one or two concise, professional sentences, or the letter would have been over 10,000 words long. I just know Mr. Schneider at one point would have thought while reading such a letter, “Okay, he can stop calling me brilliant!” G’nite it is just that much to think about when it comes to the creative production value of this man. Does Kurt read all his fan; I mean business mail?

 ATTENTION – Charlie Puth – Madilyn Bailey, Mario Jose, and KHS. Delicately expressing serious matters of the heart. – 2017/06/24 

Who?  Madilyn Bailey, Mario Jose, and KHS (The Producer)
What?  A cover of ATTENTION – Charlie Puth
When?  Cover first aired on Kurt Hugo Schneider’s YouTube Channel June 2017
Why? This collaboration arrangement and production is by the talented KHS. He features Madilyn Bailey and Mario Jose vocals in this song with delicate tones that soften the seriousness of the subject matter. Pressing matters of the heart do not require screaming (or abusive words), just truthfulness and dignity. Have you ever needed to have this conversation with someone that required:

REBECCA BLACK AND KHS- IF WE WERE A SONG – ORIGINAL
MARCH 12, 2017

A songstress and musician collaboration that produces the sounds in which they leave you asking? “How many years has this band been together?” Then when you find out they collaborate only a few times a year, you may next intimate this incentive, “Well, it sounds like they belong together.”

Music Art for Dance and Pop Culture’s Rhythm
Rebecca Black and KHS- If We Were A Song – Original

From Kurt Hugo Schneider’s beats to Rebecca Black’s voice, this team’s performing art is going to fast-step the rhythm in you!

If We Were A Song is a creative work with an undeniable tempo that can help the listener to reflect on their close relationships (Friendships).

If we were a song, how would we sound? Would it be upbeat? Would it be sad? Would our song be filled with love and trust? No matter what we go through in life would the outcome prove to be “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough?” to break this bond?

You see, by Miss Rebecca Black and Kurt (KHS) writing and producing their NEW original in this way you can choose to dance, dance, dance for fun, or in thoughts of reflection seriously feel you need to tell someone, “We really need to work this out?” “Look at the magnetized ways our minds have connected and the phenomenal atoms created that protrude nice things”

New Listener: “You mean I can get all of this from Miss Black’s & KHS original ‘If We Were A Song?’
The Connoisseur: “You get that and more.”

For the most part, people will probably dance around the house (or inside the car) as they take care of this and that. All the same, here at the Product of Culture website, we at times expound upon songs emotions and thoughts that are in today’s environment; that are in your hearts.

Now it is a pleasure to be one of the first to introduce this original song with two very talented musicians in Rebecca Black and KHS:

CHAINED TO THE RHYTHM-KHS COLLABORATION PRESENTS REBECCA BLACK – FEBRUARY 27, 2017

Kurt Schneider is pleased to feature the talented Rebecca Black. You may remember Rebecca Black from her viral hit “Friday.” Yes, Friday is the song unrevealed astronomical numbers of people loved hearing and singing it; but some had no desire to admit it in public.
The video went viral all the same! The people who were comfortable with their own taste in music kept singing “It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta get down on Friday!”
Uhm, I don’t know the words; I heard these are the words everyone sang in the year of 2011, on a Friday; at 4: 02: 15 seconds p.m.; while putting gas in the car at the nearest convenient store; after leaving last appointments for the day.
*Cough* That was a close one.*Cough*

Well, enough of history, Rebecca Black has continued to impress musicians and singers alike. Case in point, Kurt (KHS) the Producer.
Kurt has teamed up Miss Black with (Chained to the Rythm song) Alex Goot; a skilled musician and crooner that we will highlight more in the future.

The Product of Culture website is pleased to share with you now this KHS Collaboration presentation of Rebecca Black!

Kurt the Producer presents this collaboration with YouTube sensation Madilyn Bailey!

Kurt Hugo Schneider (KHS) is a man with skills used in the music and entertainment industry.

He plays quite a number of instruments that I can’t even name them all. When he plays the piano, I wonder what Mozart would think of him, along with many of the global music composers today?

Madilyn Bailey (Songstress and entertainer) “loves” when Kurt (KHS) invites her to sing on his Kurt’s Cover Music. Here at the Product of Culture website we reference such well-produced music performances team-ups as KHS COLLABORATIONS! (I’m sure Kurt does not mind what we call him in the positive, long as we don’t all him late for dinner!)

Without further ado, travel on to video section and enjoy these two selected videos:

The Rebuild on May 7, 2019

This is the biggest event for the website that the readers noticed right away. The theme change for POCBOOKS. Here is my official farewell to it.

“On May 7, 2019, The Product of Culture website has been rebuilt from the ground up. Over the years, I’ve written hundreds of articles for this website alone. Many of them have been deleted and archived as well.

I held on to the old theme, and I really don’t like to call it that, for as long as I could, even after it was hacked years ago. The company I purchased it from still has not come out with any 2019 (security) updates that are sorely needed.

That favorite theme for so many, including myself, has served a wonderful purpose. I will truly miss it.”

The Prince and the Pauper Profound Reading 13

This is a new way of looking at Mark Twain ‘s timeless classic. Take each chapter at time to learn something new.  Welcome to The Prince and the Pauper Profound Reading 13

James’ Commentary Opening

Go the extra mile you heard people say back in the day. While today, you hear I bend over backwards for that person.
People in contemplation often feel there is nothing that shows more character than experiencing the relief of a person going the extra mile for another who cannot return the favor. The case can also be made by a surface perception, the person in the disadvantage circumstance has absolutely nothing they can give you in return. That is; on the surface perception

The Prince and the Pauper Fundamental Reading

The Prince and Pauper

Author Mark Twain

Public Domain Literature (Published in 1881-82)

A story that has been told and written over the years about a prince. And a pauper; a very poor person.

Chapter 13 The Prince and the Pauper

Word Meanings: Disapparelled means to have removed the clothing from a person.

Sentence: It was clear why the father disapparelled the baby’s jumpsuit and diaper, due to my nose informing me the baby had done its business in them.

Chapter 13 The Prince and the Pauper

A heavy drowsiness presently fell upon the two comrades. The King said–

“Remove these rags”–meaning his clothing.

Hendon disapparelled the boy without dissent or remark, tucked him up in bed, then glanced about the room, saying to himself, ruefully, “He hath taken my bed again, as before–marry, what shall I do?” The little King observed his perplexity, and dissipated it with a word. He said, sleepily–

“Thou wilt sleep athwart the door, and guard it.” In a moment more he was out of his troubles, in a deep slumber.

“Dear heart, he should have been born a king!” muttered Hendon, admiringly; “he playeth the part to a marvel.”

Then he stretched himself across the door, on the floor, saying contentedly–

“I have lodged worse for seven years; ‘twould be but ill gratitude to Him above to find fault with this.”

He dropped asleep as the dawn appeared. Toward noon he rose, uncovered his unconscious ward–a section at a time–and took his measure with a string. The King awoke, just as he had completed his work, complained of the cold, and asked what he was doing.

“‘Tis done, now, my liege,” said Hendon; “I have a bit of business outside, but will presently return; sleep thou again–thou needest it. There–let me cover thy head also–thou’lt be warm the sooner.”

The King was back in dreamland before this speech was ended. Miles slipped softly out, and slipped as softly in again, in the course of thirty or forty minutes, with a complete second-hand suit of boy’s clothing, of cheap material, and showing signs of wear; but tidy, and suited to the season of the year. He seated himself, and began to overhaul his purchase, mumbling to himself–

“A longer purse would have got a better sort, but when one has not the long purse one must be content with what a short one may do–

“‘There was a woman in our town, In our town did dwell–‘

“He stirred, methinks–I must sing in a less thunderous key; ’tis not good to mar his sleep, with this journey before him, and he so wearied out, poor chap . . . This garment–’tis well enough–a stitch here and another one there will set it aright. This other is better, albeit a stitch or two will not come amiss in it, likewise . . . these be very good and sound, and will keep his small feet warm and dry–an odd new thing to him, belike, since he has doubtless been used to foot it bare, winters and summers the same . . . Would thread were bread, seeing one getteth a year’s sufficiency for a farthing, and such a brave big needle without cost, for mere love. Now shall I have the demon’s own time to thread it!”

And so he had. He did as men have always done, and probably always will do, to the end of time–held the needle still, and tried to thrust the thread through the eye, which is the opposite of a woman’s way. Time and time again the thread missed the mark, going sometimes on one side of the needle, sometimes on the other, sometimes doubling up against the shaft; but he was patient, having been through these experiences before, when he was soldiering. He succeeded at last, and took up the garment that had lain waiting, meantime, across his lap, and began his work.

“The inn is paid–the breakfast that is to come, included–and there is wherewithal left to buy a couple of donkeys and meet our little costs for the two or three days betwixt this and the plenty that awaits us at Hendon Hall–

“‘She loved her hus–‘

“Body o’ me! I have driven the needle under my nail! . . . It matters little–’tis not a novelty–yet ’tis not a convenience, neither . . .We shall be merry there, little one, never doubt it! Thy troubles will vanish there, and likewise thy sad distemper–

“‘She loved her husband dearilee, But another man–‘

“These be noble large stitches!”–holding the garment up and viewing it admiringly–“they have a grandeur and a majesty that do cause these small stingy ones of the tailor-man to look mightily paltry and plebeian–

“‘She loved her husband dearilee, But another man he loved she,–‘

“Marry, ’tis done–a goodly piece of work, too, and wrought with expedition. Now will I wake him, apparel him, pour for him, feed him, and then will we hie us to the mart by the Tabard Inn in Southwark and–be pleased to rise, my liege!–he answereth not– what ho, my liege!–of a truth must I profane his sacred person with a touch, sith his slumber is deaf to speech. What!”

He threw back the covers–the boy was gone!

He stared about him in speechless astonishment for a moment; noticed for the first time that his ward’s ragged raiment was also missing; then he began to rage and storm and shout for the innkeeper. At that moment a servant entered with the breakfast.

“Explain, thou limb of Satan, or thy time is come!” roared the man of war, and made so savage a spring toward the waiter that this latter could not find his tongue, for the instant, for fright and surprise. “Where is the boy?”

In disjointed and trembling syllables the man gave the information desired.

“You were hardly gone from the place, your worship, when a youth came running and said it was your worship’s will that the boy come to you straight, at the bridge-end on the Southwark side. I brought him hither; and when he woke the lad and gave his message, the lad did grumble some little for being disturbed ‘so early,’ as he called it, but straightway trussed on his rags and went with the youth, only saying it had been better manners that your worship came yourself, not sent a stranger–and so–”

“And so thou’rt a fool!–a fool and easily cozened–hang all thy breed! Yet mayhap no hurt is done. Possibly no harm is meant the boy. I will go fetch him. Make the table ready. Stay! the coverings of the bed were disposed as if one lay beneath them– happened that by accident?”

“I know not, good your worship. I saw the youth meddle with them- -he that came for the boy.”

“Thousand deaths! ‘Twas done to deceive me–’tis plain ’twas done to gain time. Hark ye! Was that youth alone?”

“All alone, your worship.”

“Art sure?”

“Sure, your worship.”

“Collect thy scattered wits–bethink thee–take time, man.”

After a moment’s thought, the servant said–

“When he came, none came with him; but now I remember me that as the two stepped into the throng of the Bridge, a ruffian-looking man plunged out from some near place; and just as he was joining them–”

“What then?–out with it!” thundered the impatient Hendon, interrupting.

“Just then the crowd lapped them up and closed them in, and I saw no more, being called by my master, who was in a rage because a joint that the scrivener had ordered was forgot, though I take all the saints to witness that to blame me for that miscarriage were like holding the unborn babe to judgment for sins com–”

“Out of my sight, idiot! Thy prating drives me mad! Hold! Whither art flying? Canst not bide still an instant? Went they toward Southwark?”

“Even so, your worship–for, as I said before, as to that detestable joint, the babe unborn is no whit more blameless than– ”
“Art here yet! And prating still! Vanish, lest I throttle thee!” The servitor vanished. Hendon followed after him, passed him, and plunged down the stairs two steps at a stride, muttering, “‘Tis that scurvy villain that claimed he was his son. I have lost thee, my poor little mad master–it is a bitter thought–and I had come to love thee so! No! by book and bell, not lost! Not lost, for I will ransack the land till I find thee again. Poor child, yonder is his breakfast–and mine, but I have no hunger now; so, let the rats have it–speed, speed! that is the word!” As he wormed his swift way through the noisy multitudes upon the Bridge he several times said to himself–clinging to the thought as if it were a particularly pleasing one–“He grumbled, but he went–he went, yes, because he thought Miles Hendon asked it, sweet lad–he would ne’er have done it for another, I know it well.”

Practical “Jokers” in Mark Twain’s days
As readers are made aware, Mark Twain was not a stick in the mud as the expression goes for people who need to lighten up and have fun.
Still, as written in his autobiography, he described a disdain for practical jokers who just didn’t know when to quit. In fact, during his time, there were practical “jokers” who made an occupation of it. Mr. Twain, in his satire,  alluded to thieves having more redeemable qualities than such adult age men.
Mark Twain’s satire is one of a kind, that some writers have skillfully learned to place in their writings. Because Mr. Twain could voice such matters that irked his nerves, and still keep a sense of humor about life.

Until next time: Remember, if you read something that improves your life for the better, it becomes your reality. – J.L.
