What Everybody Ought to Know About Amy Winehouse

Posted by on Dec 25, 2016 in Music | 995 comments

I just felt very sad when I saw the latest calamity from our above-mentioned singer.

I know many people will be having a laugh at her expense but it’s really not funny, it’s tragic.

Amy Winehouse is without a doubt a very talented singer and composer who has had a musical upbringing that I, and many of my students, would envy.

She was surrounded by music as a child, attending a theatrical school at the age of nine and forming her own wedding band in Melbourne at the age of ten.

At 13 she received a guitar and began to write music a year later and sing with a jazz band.

It seems that Amy was born for her career and landed in just the right place at the right time.

So why is Amy Winehouse destroying herself, her music and her career?

My guess is, besides many other issues, that she doesn’t really feel she owns what she has achieved.  It may have been a bit too easy (and I stress, this is only in reference to her career) to achieve her musical status.

Many singers I teach long for a story like Amy’s;

  1. Parents who support and encourage her talent;
  2. A friend gives a tape of her singing to an A&R person;
  3. Tape leads to her being signed to a record company and a publishing deal with EMI;
  4. Amy is allowed to co-write her songs and work with top producer Salaam Remi;
  5. Album enters the upper levels of UK charts and is nominated for BRIT award; and
  6. All before her 22nd birthday.

Amy has been offered coveted opportunities on a plate, opportunities which many of us either never get to realise or have to work very hard to get.

However, she has also had to go through her twenties in the limelight.

For me, my twenties were a very difficult time and a time when I was easily influenced.

I was introduced to alcohol and other drugs by people who I looked up to in the musical field and I too, have experienced some embarrassing moments that led to loss of opportunities in my music.

Looking back at my career, I also realise I could have done better if I had not been sidetracked by a certain amount of partying and people who did not have my best intentions at heart.

However, unlike Amy I had very limited funds and a limited lifestyle.  I had to work in the ‘everyday’ world to support myself and I had to solve problems, feel lonely at times (not surrounded by ‘yes’ people as Amy would be) and have space to work things out.

At the time, these things did not make me happy, but given the choice between my life and what Amy is suffering now, I choose my life over and over again.


Because everything I have in music, my career and my family I have worked really hard to get.

I treasure every moment at the piano singing, every gig I play (there’s nothing better than earning money from doing what you love), every student I teach and every moment I get to spend with my family.

It’s a very difficult concept to get across to young people who dream of instant fame and fortune, that this is not the key to a happy life nor success in music.  (I don’t think we need any more proof than the above video).

When it comes to your music and your career;

  • You have to make your own opportunities. ( Eg, go to auditions, start bands, look for gigs, play at parties, join a theatre group etc);
  • You need to make good choices.  (Eg, you may miss out on some opportunities by choosing not to attend some function or musical event because you don’t feel like it or want to stay home or go out with friends.)
  • Make positive connections with other musicians.  (The ones who are partying and taking drugs do not offer those connections.)
  • Don’t worry if things don’t happen straight away.  With hindsight you will understand why.  You just need to trust that if you put in the work and stick at what you love for the right reason, life will take you where you need to be in the end.

Sometimes it’s good to have limited choices and to work hard to achieve our goals because then we will feel a certain amount of ownership of our lives and we will protect what we have.

Amy Winehouse is obviously destroying her career for a number of reasons, but one of them could be because she hasn’t had to work very hard for the opportunities which have brought her success (e.g. major backing from record companies).  Yes, I think her talent is deserving of this backing, but is it a case of too much, too soon?

Make Time to Workout So You Will Have Time to live

Posted by on Dec 18, 2016 in Health | 4 comments

Who has time for to exercise today? Well, we all have to make time for ourselves now. I know it sounds selfish, but if you plan on being around to see your kids grow up, and spoil your grand kids, you have got to make the time and you have got to do it today! There are never any guarantees that will make it to that point, but you will certainly increase your odds by losing that extra weight and getting that heart pumping good and strong. I really do not care how you go about it, but you have to get fit.


As for making the time to work out, well if you stop and think about it, you probably have the time now, you just are not using it right. How much time do you spend in front of the TV every night? And what do you get from that? A wider butt and a numb mind. How long have you been surfing the web right now? And that’s gotten you what? Have you lost weight or made extra money? Would you say that you have at least one hour a day that is wasted doing these things? I know that I used to. I would sit in front of the TV and “rest”. Hey, I had worked hard all day; I was tired and deserved a rest break. I did not even realize that I was so tired because my body had gotten used to being inactive. You see, my body was not really tired, my mind was lazy. I made excuse after excuse not to get up and move. As a result, I got fatter, which made me more tired, so I sat, which made me fatter, which made me more tired… Once you finally commit to get up, get active and get fit, you will find that you actually have a lot more energy. The more you move, the more you will want to move. For energetic food see Online Health Food Store.

Now, how can you squeeze an adequate workout into a limited amount of time? First off, for me, I quit trying to get to the gym. I instantly saved 30 minutes a day right there by not having to drive back and forth. Then if you give up one sitcom, you suddenly have an hour a day to get something done. Now, if you decide to go with any of the Beach body workouts like P90X, Insanity, Turbo Fire or Body Gospel, it’s like getting a personal trainer in a box. You have someone there to teach you how to eat, what exercises to do, how to do them and what order to do them in. You also do not have to worry about getting bored like you will (or perhaps did) with that one workout DVD from the retail store. But, if you decide to go some other way, that is fine with me. The important point here is that you quit making excuses and take the time to take care of yourself. It is not selfish to want to give your family, friends and loved ones more time by taking a little time for you.

Capturing images is a core and where photography is working at. The quality of the image is totally seen on the photos the photographer captured and every details are described in the output.  Augmentation or editing of the images is done after it was then saved in the computer.

As a photographer, you should know where your subject’s best angle in cameras is and you will instruct her to follow effectively your instructions to achieve to achieve an excellent output. Most of the photographers are perfectionist. Photo shoots can be done in a bit, but they tend to repeat shots and went into different position in order to get the exact lighting for the photo shoot.

A lot of firms these days that manufacturer these items just want to take advantage of the fact that people are looking for brands with organic slapped on them.

There have been firms that practice adding certain ingredients to the organic component of their products. So, the truth is yes, you are getting something organic off of the product, but it is not a hundred percent. The rest of the chemicals added to them are only likely to cause you more harm in the process.

Be aware of the ingredients that are being used to cure skin diseases like pimple treatment etc.. It pays to take a closer look at what these products contain before you decide to make the purchase. Know what the ingredients are and make sure too, that you are not going to be allergic to any of them. If you have sensitive skin, then it is important to be more attentive on what these items contain before getting them anywhere close to your skin.

The reputation of the makers of these products needs to be taken into account too.
