The music industry is odd, fickle, and confusing, especially when you think about the money some musicians have made compared to others. Sometimes a musician’s income is not all about how many albums they sold, the number of shows they have played, or the size of the arenas they have entertained in. Have you ever wondered who the wealthiest rock stars are, and how they came to acquire the amount of money they have?

Book Review: “Your Mark on the World” by Devin D. Thorpe

October 30th, 2012 in books-authors, entertainment, family, fashion, health-fitness, illness-disease by Betty

When we are substantially and meaningfully affected by something, whether directly or indirectly, whether tragic and heartbreaking, courageous and inspiring, or even enraging, it is common for us to ask ourselves and the people around us what we can do to help. A multitude of different things can spark an urge deep down in our gut to reach out to those around us in our own communities and to those around the world, such as losing a family member or close friend to an illness, battling an illness ourselves, natural disasters, an unwavering passion for politics and social justice issues, as well as stories, both uplifting and catastrophic. The overwhelming call within ourselves to do what we can–donate money to charity and nonprofit organizations, volunteer, run a marathon–is a feeling we are all familiar with

The DNA of a Successful Book [Infographic]

September 24th, 2012 in books-authors, entertainment by Betty

Countless books are published every year–by publishing powerhouses, small and niche-specific publishing houses, publishers dedicated solely to e-Books, and more books than ever before are now being published independently, mostly because of the rise of the e-Reader. A downright miniscule number of these books will go on to achieve much success, and even fewer will rank on bestseller lists or receive any other type of literary accolade. When it comes to the seemingly overnight success of now-hugely popular books and series while most others, even those within the same genre and some arguable more well-written, end up filling clearance racks, one must wonder what exactly makes one book hit the literary jackpot while others are destined to merely fade into obscurity

8 Classic Over-the-Top Films About Mental Illness

September 19th, 2012 in books-authors, entertainment, fashion, health, health-fitness, mental-health by Betty

From the early days of cinema to the blockbusters of today, the tone of films about mental illness have ranged from wildly histrionic ( What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? ) to hopelessly grim ( Shutter Island ). That doesn’t mean such films are necessarily bad; on the contrary, many are groundbreaking examples of the genre, whose stars (such as Joan Crawford in Possessed ) attempt to channel the experience of an individual suffering from mental illness
