What does spelling and punctuation have to do with Fashion?

In view of Joan Rivers Ref: Wiki and Robin Williams Ref: Wiki passing away in 2014, I have total respect for their lives, and I believe the world mourns for their loss. I remember watching Jumanji, Aladdin, Fashion Police, Night at the Museum, and Red Carpet award critiques on E just to name a few examples of their presence and how it was broadcast here in Australia and abroad.

Therefore in this blog article, I have decided to delve in to the intricate fabric of fashion and ostensible writing of knowledge of fashion, fabrics, and particularly - menswear. Now most of the time, I am in a pair of joggers, and tracksuit pants, or pants with room for activities like Yoga and Tai Chi, I think that the classic Chinese outfit for these activities known in the following site examples... what to wear for Tai Chi seems to indicate what I mean vaguely, for me this is hard to find, particularly in a foreigner size, this size issue has meant I have improvised and opted for a western look Western options for Yoga such as this example from Myer, although I must stress that the model for the previous link is showing a great deal of upper body and slightly too tight fitting, which I would never do, or contemplate in public. When choosing clothing - I always want something that is durable and wears well, doesn't pill or lose threads, and is comfortable when doing some walking and transportation activities.

Back to Robin Williams: I personally feel sad for his loss, an amazing actor who managed to do some fantastic stand ups, he was popular, and this means, who will entertain us now? Justin Bieber Ref: Wiki, Miley Cyrus Ref: Wiki? I think we have more options than just music, surely and hope we can embrace gaming and wildlife. After watching the film Underdog only recently Imbd ref for Underdog movie, the world and fashion seems to have shifted into a state of wanting a Superhero, and that seems to be evident for the moment.

I hope your pants don't split when you next do your Pilates Ref: Wiki , Yoga or Aerobics class. _ was here.

Gotta run,

My review of the movie "The Rover"

Guy Pearce is fantastic in this film, a story set in some fictitious stage in Australia and the outback, where guns are plenty and life is cheap. I began the day at Circular Quay Dendy cinema, and met my dad, where we watched this drama, for approx 108 minutes.
I found this film entertaining, witty, and had some great acting in it, with especially, the plot seemed to leave the viewer wondering, whether the film was crazy or something like that.
The cinematography was special, and had plenty of special effects around guns, and shooting, and was surprising at stages, with what the cast and crew had done with a relatively short film.
This film I would see again and again, because there are little aspects of the film that make it interesting, but this film would not be for everybody, because dark humour is how do you say, esoteric...

The Bird-man

The birdman, he lives down the street, with his how can I say - birds. They squawk and parrot all day, but the birdman doesn't mind. He's used to their communication methods, and mannerisms, he cleans their cages, and feeds them, even let's them breed.
So the birdman was born, perhaps four years ago, and even though there be dragons, the birdman, started to think, who's going to protect these birds, from sea eagles and snakes, cats and all sorts of predators.
The birdman began doing Tai Chi and Qi Gong, learnt from reputable sources, and like a parrot learnt some routines, then the birds, began doing Tai Chi as well!!! The birdman was astounded, have I stumbled across a connection between Tai Chi and nature, I think this is called Tao, but the birdman just used the web to find out...
Slowly the flock began to grow, and eventually the birdman had to find names for the members of the flock, Yosemite, Vista and Chicago, they were the 3 boys, and Strider, Mandy and Gold Emerald, and Miranda Flappy, the birds let the bird-man know when their names suited, they were intelligent!!! Ha so the bird-man, just lives as part of the flock, he looks after the birds, and is always looking to make his flock larger... 
When the ship goes down, you better ring Bird-man....

Dance music, and music in general, can it be performed and enjoyed drug free?

It's extremely hard these days, to convince die harder, that it is possible to enjoy music, and appreciate music, which traditionally is performed whilst under the influence, as sober minded individuals, such as the question is asked, are there any cool dance venues in Sydney which have a drug free ideology? The following is an example of what a great many artists and musicians feel about their art and the need for altered states of consciousness, almost like a religious ritual into melodic and trance out experiences, and certainly, you don't even have to consider contemporary music, but looking at all music, has there been a connection to altered minds, both compositional and appreciation, Drug Forum on Music appreciation seems to think, this concept.
It has come to my attention that this could be seen as an exception in say the gym, where a melodic mix goes in the background of your physical workout, or riding a bike listening to an iPod or record store. But where can these translations go to a community of fellow minded individuals and miss out on the sleaze of someone off their face beware the ides of Closed down venues..., and also the possibility of some young adult mistaking you, a 108kg straight male, for a prom queen lesbian, or something when the night has just begun, where for, does one go to listen to their iPod library or similar music, without the deejay terrorism, of hip hop hooray and gangster beats, where can you find the pure enjoyment of the music, and dance a bit in a cool way, without the chemical militia coming in and saying, it's our right to party, where, can you be safe around places, are there any deejays out there committed to performing straight and safely, with a sober attitude, or any rock bands, for that matter, that aren't strumming the guitar with lines of white powder accompanying back stage?
Some might say, go to your school concert, and you'll find that there, but could there equally be a lesson-ed few of those individuals, that may have come out of the experience without needing to overdose, or vanish into the shadows of the dark arts???
If you are a promoter, musician or dancer, or maybe even a deejay or music appreciator, I'd be really interested in hearing of any venues, if they do exist, out there in Sydney, or in other countries, where there is something else, than a bar to serve drinks, and the dreaded ladies toilets, etc, I wonder, is there any music venue where the toilets are kept clean, and free from people doing lines, on the tops of urinals, etc, that would be nice, I think if we could aspire for that sort of experience with tickets, and festivals, don't you agree?

Gotta do things twice, thrice and at infinitum

Often in blogging, or desktop publishing, or even programming and social networking, with all the TYPE ASSISTING programs with word suggestions and spell checking, for some people, this means you do it once, twice and thrice at infinitum.
Even the word infinitum doesn't exist in Googles' dictionary, and for that matter, proper punctuation with the ownership subtext single parentheses. This in particular runs into to trouble when you refer to ownership of multiple instances of the same noun, like it belongs to all the Nicholas's' for instance would be an example. What has happened to traditional teaching methods and typewriters, editing and spelling checking a dictionary manually?
I have done away with the double space after a full-stop, because Android typing on my Samsung likes to capitalize automatically after the full-stop and puts in a single space. Even capitalize is not capitalise, etc, and also I might have spent too much time typing in the computer because I seem to have dyslexic tendencies. For example on my site I had done a poll regarding the most popular social networking sites, and for some reason, I input the survey as socsil or something like that, and could not change it. Therefore if you act quickly towards the bottom of this immense blog site, there is a new poll for social networking platforms, and their popularity. I hope you enjoy yourself, and I miss you.

Internet Overloading

Have you ever spent so much time Googling, or using UTube, that you get stuck? I have for one really enjoyed using Google for most things from caring for Birds to life questions, and mathematical equations. Despite there being a Big Brother, I have related information using a search engine to the point where I discern results and take care with verifying the integrity of the information I gather or require. For me the Internet relies on Computers, tablets, iPhones, wristwatches and networking, have you ever thought what would happen if there were no Search Engines, or Google Maps to pinpoint locations? This Internet dependency only exists for now, but for the future who knows what will happen with the technology and the usable aspects of design and computation.

The internet can be used to shop and communicate to people, even though we like to speak to people on the telephone, being completely online has advantages that even the most moderate marketers can see, for instance, tweeting now appears in news and with that comes into the whole aspect of social networking and allowing for media to operate within the confines, of tweeting of sorts from all sorts of people, all around the world.

As I write this article I just am fascinated with how the web and storage and cloud computing has empowered many thousands if not millions or billions of children, adults, tweens and even great grandparents. The information superhighway is serving us for now, and the digital age is in existence even in some distant country, information is presented clearly, and traps are there, but usually easily seen and detected.

So with Web Browsing, UTube, Flickr and so forth information, graphics, anime, and comedy channels exist making you sometimes, stay awake longer in front of a screen, Internet overload can occur, and as funny as human beings are, sometimes, things are how you say, hard to mentally digest.

Meditation and it's role in healing

Recently I had injured my left hip flexor nerve, whilst removing an old egg from my bird Aviary. The pain was excruciating  and I literally couldn't stand up putting any force on my hip. One day went then another, RICE, followed all the rules, Dr Google, and yet still I was in pain days and days later. I then remembered a Brahma Kumaris CD I had purchased from the centre in Willoughby, and began to remember the retreat I went to called moving forward. I tried Hatha Yoga and the Alexander Technique to try and open the areas for more movement, plus I had medicine to take. The most profound aspect of Raja Yoga meditation is it's capacity to restore a persons well-being  more or less at a Spiritual level. My mother thinks I am crazy for believing in it, but sadly her health is deteriorating, and if anything her spirit is in need of healing. I wonder if you have your own story about meditation and it's role in physical healing, not just spiritual, perhaps you have a loved one that is stressed beyond all traditional medicine means? Raja Yoga Meditation does involve, retreats and learning classes at the BK retreat centre, because of that theory some develop internal struggles, whilst others encounter a cathartic mystical relationship with the divine truth of this existence.

Until next time Om Shanti and Be Well,

Nick
