How Movies Are Changing Lives
I take my fourteen year old and off we go. Let's just say I was already feeling good because I didn't have to whip out my wallet. I don't have the words to relay just how inspired this movie made me feel. I've followed Nick Nolte's career here and there, I find this movie to be some of his best work ever. I liked the fact that he was not all perfect looking and cuddly, his scratchy voice is his trademark. Yeah, it does get a little cheesy in some spots but these are very minor if you're able to look at the big picture.
After the movie, my fourteen year old and I talked and recited quotes from the movie all the way home. If this doesn't sound amazing to you, that's because you don't know my son. This young man doesn't waste his words and if I can pull one to two sentences a day out of him I'm lucky. We both left feeling good, motivated and inspired. Maybe these quotes from the movie and Dan Millman's book Way of The Peaceful Warrior on which the movie is based will inspire you, give you food for thought and make you feel good.
I'd gladly pay this time to see the movie again and most certainly will add this one to my DVD collection right next to The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know. I take these quotes and add them to my son's school agenda, a type of notebook his school uses to track homework assignments and parental communication. So instead of just signing my name every night, I write a quote or a positive kudo for my son to read to himself in school the next day. Independent artists have long struggled to gain recognition and attract an audience. Without the backing of a major label it can be very difficult for independent artists to obtain radio play time, that is, until now. Podcasting a revolutionary new medium, has opened new distribution channels for independent artists. Podcasting is the process of distributing audio files using the RSS format and has become very popular with the younger generations. With the use of technology, independent artists have a unique opportunity available, using technology they can significantly expand the exposure of their music. Bands who have a similar genre can exchange adverts in their podcasts and increase both of their fan bases. Quid pro quo promotion that costs little but can result in huge returns.
Independent artists have a unique opportunity available to them. Podcasting is a fairly new medium that has far reaching distribution opportunities. Independent artists were once restricted by geography, playing at local clubs to increase their base. Podcasting has no borders. Producing a podcast can mean the difference between success and failure for an independent artist. All the world over, the music of the more primitive of the uncivilized races may be said to move on parallel lines, and it is only as tribes and nations rise somewhat in the scale of nature that their music begins to display any marked degree of differentiation. Down on what might be called the bed-rock of humanity they are all pretty much alike, and in the national music of the most widely removed races the same phenomena present themselves with but trifling modification. Singing or any type of vocal sounds is common everywhere on planet earth. The primitive human being gives expression to the primary emotions and passions by means of the voice or speech as a matter of instinct, just as is done by the brute creation.
