When he is ready to watch Barney, he will grab the remotes and bring them to me. Landen has learned so much from watching this show. He picks up so many different words, colors, dances, and songs. He can basically carry on a conversation with me, it makes me sad because he has grown up so fast. Landen has at least thirty Barney DVDs, recordings on DVR, plus he watches episodes on Netflix.
I watched Star Wars with my brother -Dave- for the first time one Christmas and from then on we were both hooked. Star Wars on telly at Christmas became our tradition. It was the only thing that was predictable and good; amongst the instability of our family home. It enabled us to escape into our imaginations and to dream about ‘how great life would be’, if the imagination became a reality. Even thinking about Star Wars
Music was an escape for Bruce, and he was inspired to pursue a career in music after seeing Elvis and the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. He taught himself to play the guitar, and when he was 16; his mother took out a loan to buy him a guitar for Christmas. During Bruce Springsteen concerts, he would express feelings about his family and the problems he endure during childhood. Basically he used memories from childhood and current issues to write his music. One of the best songs he ever wrote was “Born to Run”.
CMST. 102 11/27/14 I. Attention Getter: (Start speech by playing music, turning lights off, dancing a little?) So we all listen to music, it’s a part of our everyday lives. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who said they can’t stand music... and if I ever did I would call them out for lying.
Imagine that! I recall previewing this CD in the store prior to purchase and enjoying the beat of the music – particularly as it was something I had never heard of before. My aunt then purchased a Discman, and the CD for me – and I was well on my way to building my music collection. Soon followed the purchase of various Christian Rap CDs, as well as some various secular music purchases. As I continued to grow and mature, and as we moved to Central Virginia when I was the ripe age of ten, I was able to further expand my music appreciation amongst classical, oldies, talk radio, hip-hop, rap, R&B, rock, metal, etc.
Dale L. Baptiste Professor Melinda Rogers Music 123 14 Apr 2013 The Special Magic of Carlos Santana The entire world know the special magic of Carlos Santana as expressed through his music and his guitar playing, which is among the most distinctive and recognizable in all music. Carlos was introduced to "traditional music" by his father, Jose. An accomplished mariachi violinist and experienced musician, he taught Carlos the basics of music theory and gave him an understanding of the value of a note. Although Carlos' excitement for music would be sparked by his first experience, he quickly discovered the limits of its traditional form and wanted more. Carlos wanted to play the kind of music that was filling the radio waves and making people dance.
I have two other sons, Wyatt, aged three years and Austin, whom just turned a year old, at home and a husband who went back to school as well. When my husband, Sam, and Travis are at school, I take care of my younger two boys. Trying to study and do homework and watch them is a challenge as well. We couldn't afford to put them in daycare, so I changed my school schedule to be home during the day with all the kids, and Sam would be home at night with them. With a husband, three boys and school, there really isn't much time left to do anything else.
Groups like the Beatles, Three Dog Night, America and The Guess Who are just a few bands I would listen to as well as old school country music like Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Dolly Parton and Conway Twitty. Then one day, I found and listened to an 8 track tape of the group KISS which my Father had ordered by mistake and my whole world changed. For the next 15 years, I was a diehard rocker. By mid 80s, I started to listen to the music that I had grown up with as well other artist of that era like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Elvis and not only did I enjoy it again and I knew all the words, but realized how influential some of these artists had on music and people alike. At the same time, I started broadening my listening to groups and genres I usually didn’t or wouldn’t listen to and found that they were good.

Peace, Love and Tie-Dye Nicole Patton Harrisburg Area Community College What do you think of when you hear tie-dye? Are hippies the first thing to come to mind? I personally have worn my own hand-crafted tie-dye shirts on several occasions. As a preteen I went through my hippie stage; I was so fascinated by the culture that even for Halloween I dressed up in a colorful hippie tie-dye t-shirt. Creating my colorful t-shirt was easy to make, but there were detailed steps that was followed to get the result I wanted.
