Lemmy from Motorhead Died – Death of Heavy Metal Hero

Ian Lemmy Kilmister Dies After He Was Diagnosed with Cancer

Lemmy from Motorhead has died. Motorhead and Lemmy were the biggest contributors to the music scene, not only in United Kingdom, but also all around the world. Lemmy’s first band that he became a member of, was the psychedelic band named Hawkwind, which in that time was famous for consuming abnormal amounts of LSD. Then the Motorhead was formed and the style changed from psychedelic rock to heavy metal and hard rock. Also not many people know that before Lemmy started playing with the band Hawkwind, he was working in a bar as a waiter, but his strong pursue to become a musician got him where he was for the rest of his tremendous life.

Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister, founding member and singer in the British heavy metal band Motörhead, has died at the age of 70 shortly after learning he had been diagnosed with cancer.

The band announced on their Facebook page that Lemmy learned of the disease on 26 December, and was at home when he died.

Lemmy, born Ian Fraser Kilmister, formed Motörhead in 1975 and was its only constant member, as singer and bassist. The band released 23 studio albums and are best known for their 1980 single Ace of Spades.

The band requested fans “play Lemmy’s music LOUD. Have a drink or few. Share stories. Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.

“There is no easy way to say this … our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learned of the disease on 26 December, and was at home, sitting in front of his favourite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.

“We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness; there aren’t words.

“We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please … play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD. Have a drink or few.

“Share stories.

“Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself.

“HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT.”

The band signed off: “Ian ‘Lemmy’ Kilmister

“1945 -2015

“Born to lose, lived to win.”

Tributes poured in for the heavy metal giant, with Ozzy Osbourne tweeting: “Lost one of my best friends, Lemmy, today. He will be sadly missed. He was a warrior and a legend. I will see you on the other side.”

Former Motörhead drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor died aged 61 in November. “Fast” Eddie Clarke, who becomes the last surviving member of the band’s most famous lineup, wrote on Facebook: “I have just been told that Lemmy has passed away in LA. Like Phil, he was like a brother to me. I am devastated. We did so much together, the three of us.

“The world seems a really empty place right now. I am having trouble finding the words … He will live on in our hearts. RIP Lemmy!”

Lemmy’s public struggles with illness intensified in recent years. The singer underwent surgery to have an implantable defibrillator placed in his chest in 2013, and has cancelled shows in recent years due to exhaustion and a haematoma.

The band had been scheduled to tour the UK and France in early 2016.

Lemmy was born in Burslem, Staffordshire, on Christmas Eve in 1945. His musical career began in the early 1960s and he was, for a time, a roadie for Jimi Hendrix. He played in several rock bands, including the Rockin’ Vickers, Sam Gopal and Hawkwind, before founding Motörhead (originally named Bastard).

He wrote in his autobiography, White Line Fever, that he had been fired from Hawkwind for “doing the wrong drugs”.

Motörhead’s loud, fast style was a pioneering force in heavy metal. Lemmy’s vocal growl and aggressive bass playing has been emulated by countless other bands, but the singer joked that he largely learned on the job, telling Spin in 2012 that “the volume’s loud so nobody really notices that much”.

The band’s highest-rating record was the live album No Sleep ’Til Hammersmith, which peaked at number one on the UK album charts – a testament to the band’s crushing onstage performances.

How 60% of Moms Spend Their Time Online on the Internet

Online Business For Moms

About 60% of Moms on the Internet Use Youtube to Answer Their Daily Questions

Mom Searching On YoutubeAccording to this year research study of Mom’s on Youtube and how do they spend the time on Youtube. The research show us, that over 58% of moms that were surveyed this year use the Youtube to answer their daily questions.

When we look at this, its no wonder that in these days its popular to start and maintain own Online Business, even if its just a small business making extra 500 or 1000 dollars/euro per month into the pocket without leaving the home. What a dream, but not today. 15 years ago people would think that its almost impossible to start personal online business, because there was almost nobody doing it. But today its becoming pretty much normal, especially for stayed at home moms with depended child or children who have a plenty of time and can’t move out of the house because of their little children’s needs.

Anyway, that was just a thought on these stats about moms. Here is an interesting article about this matter.

 

Moms and Youtube

More and more, moms are turning to YouTube for answers to their daily questions. Kate Stanford, director of YouTube advertiser marketing and mother of three, shares new insights about how moms are using YouTube, and how your brand can be there in the moments that matter to moms.

Like most moms I’m faced with new questions, decisions, and challenges every day. Questions from my kids like, “Mom, how do I draw a My Little Pony?” Decisions I need to make like, “Which jogging stroller will be light enough to push up that hill by my house?” Or the kind of big parenting challenges that keep me up at night like, “How do I talk to my kid about bullying?”

With a world of information at our fingertips, moms are going online with questions big and small. To better understand what this looks like for moms, and how online video fits into their lives and decision-making process, we partnered with TNS and Ipsos and surveyed self-identifying moms, ages 18-54, who watch videos online. We found that 83% of moms search for answers to their questions online. And of those, three in five turn to online video in particular.

We know that two of the main reasons moms use YouTube are for how-to and DIY ideas. As moms turn to YouTube more and more, brands have a great opportunity: to be there and provide useful content when moms are looking for help, product know-how, or even ideas.

Moms rely on YouTube how-to videos more than the average viewer

Few moms have time to scour a dozen fashion magazines for the latest trends, or test drive a dozen different strollers around the store (while their toddler is crying). Instead, in those I-want-to-know, I-want-to-buy, I-want-to-do micro-moments, they’ll often turn to YouTube. Today’s moms want show-not-tell answers in the moment. And YouTube delivers.

Of moms surveyed who view videos on YouTube, 81% watch how-to content. In fact, moms are significantly more likely* to watch how-to content than the average viewer.

“I wanted to learn how to cook a steak. I went to YouTube to watch a video instead of just looking up a recipe because I wanted to know how they actually cooked it—to see exactly what they are doing.” — Rique, 40
“Bullying has been around for a long time. YouTube provides resources for parents to use, whether they be videos or activities that you could do together to have an open conversation. It helps me start a dialogue with my child.” — Jessica, 32

Irish Guinness and 15 Reasons Why is Guinness World’s Unique Beer

Popularity of Guinness All Over the World

Irish Guinness is the greatest alcohol beverage in Ireland, but also its popularity has grown up all around the world. Compared to the other beers, Guinness is unique by its distinguish unique taste of roasted barley and dark black color. Ireland is a big consumer of beer, being in the world’s first 10 biggest consumers of beer per person, with Czech Republic being the 1st leader in beer consummation per head per year.

Cheers to Guinness, the venerable stout that the Irish lovingly call “The Black Stuff”, known for its velvety pour, creamy head and reputation among diehard fans as one of the tastiest brews on the planet. Ranker.com recently conducted an online survey of more than 3,500 drinkers to rate the world’s best beer, and Guinness once again claimed first place. Legendarily hard-drinking Irish actor Peter O’Toole would surely agree. “My favorite food from my homeland is Guinness,” he once said. “My second choice is Guinness. My third choice—would have to be Guinness.”

Here are fifteen reasons why Guinness is indisputably Ireland’s greatest beer.

1. It’s good for you
At 198 calories a pint, Guinness is better for the waistline than most non-light beers. Even more impressive? A study by the University of Wisconsin revealed that it may work as well as a low-dose Aspirin to reduce the risk of heart attacks and blood clots, as it contains the same type of antioxidants found in red wine.

2. It’s the only beer that’s stopped more bar fights than it’s started
In 1954,  the unfortunately-named Guinness managing director Sir Hugh Beaver developed the famous Guinness Book Of World Records, and distributed it to pub owners as a way to settle boozy tavern arguments, decades before Google was even a glimmer in Silicon Valley’s eye.

3. It’s made from quality ingredients 
The main ingredients that go into every pint are water (straight from Ireland’s Wicklow Mountains), hops, barley (which is responsible for the color) and yeast—the same strain of which hails all the way back to the original recipe.

4. The logo is legendary
The Guinness harp emblem is based on a famous 14th century harp known as the “Brian Boru”, and is nearly identical to the stringed instrument used as Ireland’s national symbol. In fact, when the Irish Free State was founded in 1922, it had to get permission to use the harp from Guinness—which had already trademarked its version in 1876.

5. They made really cool posters of beer-loving animals
English artist John Gilroy’s famous renderings featured an assortment of beer-balancing seals, lions, turtles, alligators, and the famous pint-toting toucan (Gilroy was inspired after visiting his local zoo).


6. It tastes great because of science
Guinness was one of the first breweries to invest heavily in quality control going back to the early 1900s, when they hired William Sealy Gosset as their statistician. The math whiz devised a complicated way of insuring each gulp tastes the same in Kenya as it does in County Cork, although it supposedly still tastes best in its native Ireland.

7. The original Dublin brewery still has a 9,000-year lease
Company founder Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000-year lease (not a misprint) on the St. James Gate Brewery in Dublin in 1759. So yeah, Guinness will be around long after we’re all gone.


8. It has tons of loyal celebrity fans
Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Will Ferrell, Conan O’Brien, Sean Penn, Paul Rudd, Tom Cruise and Queen Elizabeth (who is rumored to keep a keg of Guinness on tap in Buckingham Palace) have all tippled at the Dublin brewery, though Rudd is perhaps the brand’s biggest fan. “Paul let me crash in his apartment when I visited New York,” says Guinness Brewery tour guide Alan Maxwell. “He loved my tour so much that he came back with his family and specifically requested me.” Rudd is either a really nice guy, or he’s just really into drinking Guinness.

9. They patented “The Widget”
In 1969, Guinness patented an ingenious little device known as “The Widget”. The nitrogen-filled ball releases gas that better manages the consistency of the stout’s silky, creamy head, thereby making canned Guinness taste more like it came from a tap rather than your local CVS. In 2004, the game-changing widget was even named the greatest technological invention of the last 40 years by British tech mag T3. (Sorry, Internet.)

10. It has its own team of historians
“The amount of documentation we have on the brewery, if rolled out, would be five miles in length,” says Guinness’s resident archivist, Eibhlin Colgan. The company’s libation library is available via appointment and its many highlights include a copy of Arthur’s absurdly long lease, original recipe books dating from the late 1700s, and the company’s first print ad in a national paper with the Daily Mail copy reading: “THIS IS THE FIRST ADVERTISEMENT EVER ISSUED IN A NATIONAL PAPER TO ADVERTISE GUINNESS”. It was a blunter, more word-repetitive time.

11. The Guinness storehouse is shaped like a giant pint glass
The brew palace’s entire cylindrical design is meant to look like a seven-story glass of Guinness—even more so with the just-added Christmas lights resembling the tan-turned-black cascading waterfall of a settling pour—and fittingly, it could hold 14.3 million pints. That’s more than one cup for every man, woman and child in Ireland.

12. They are serious about pouring the “perfect pint”
Domhnall Marnell is minister of ceremonies at the Connoisseur Bar Experience within a beautiful private space near the fifth floor dining hall at Dublin’s Guinness Brewery. The class pairs various foods with the most agreeable stouts, porters and IPAs, with the highlight being a lesson in how to pour the perfect pint. It’s a worth-the-wait endeavor that should take 119 seconds from the time you place your order. “Because 120 seconds just doesn’t sound as interesting,” explains Marnell.

Here’s how to pour the perfect pint:

A) Pull the tap all the way down, towards your chest, with your glass roughly 15 milliliters from the spout. “The further the beer travels, the more air bubbles you get,” explains Dom. Fill all the way to the pint’s little Guinness harp at a 45-degree angle. Don’t have a gift shop pint glass? Leave an inch of space, and wait until you see a solid distinction between the cream of the head and the dark ruby-red.

B) Push the tap—this time away from your chest and towards the bar—and finish the pour.

C) Wait for the cascading fountain of brown to turn crimsony black and…sláinte!

13. Bartenders love to draw on the head
“I know a local bartender who picks up women by writing his phone number in the foam,”claims Marnell, when asked about the popular practice of drawing shamrocks atop the pint, using the last few drops from the tap. You can watch a pro show how it’s done here:

 

14. It’s  guzzled around the world, but it’s actually most popular in Africa
The beer is brewed in 49 countries and sold in over 150, with Africa being the Irish stout’s biggest market. Indeed, 40 percent of total consumption happens there , and three out of the five Guinness breweries call the continent home. An estimated 10 million Guinness pints are ordered at bars and restaurants around the world every day.

 15. Company employees are encouraged to drink on the job
Guinness employs 22,000 people worldwide, and was one of the first companies in Ireland to offer paid vacations. Up until the 1970s, every employee was allotted two free pints a day. (And you thought it takes them a long time to pour the stuff now.)

Robert Loggia in 1966

It always brings up a lot of memories when some great stars of cinematography such as Robert Loggia from the classic movie like Scarface or Robert Lynch’s Lost Highway, pass away. Then we realize the huge step that been taken since the first big actors on the movie scene until now. Everything started with those brilliant actors and actresses of old days.

All the best to you Robert Loggia and rest in peace!

Robert Loggia in 1966Robert Loggia, a durable and versatile tough guy actor in movies and TV shows including Brian De Palma’s 1983 drama “Scarface” and “Big,” died Friday at his home in Los Angeles, his widow Audrey confirmed to Variety. He was 85.

Loggia had been battling Alzheimer’s Disease for the past five years, according to his widow. They had been married for 33 years.

He was nominated for a supporting actor Academy Award for “Jagged Edge” in 1986 for his portrayal of  blunt private detective Sam Ransom.

Loggia’s most notable film credits included “An Officer and a Gentleman,” “Prizzi’s Honor,” “Independence Day,” David Lynch’s “Lost Highway” and “Big,” in which he played a toy company owner and performed a memorable duet on a giant foot-operated piano with Tom Hanks. He played Miami drug lord Frank Lopez in “Scarface.”

Loggia played Anwar Sadat in the 1982 TV movie “A Woman Called Golda” opposite Ingrid Bergman. He also portrayed fearsome mobster-bakery owner Feech La Manna on several episodes of “The Sopranos.”

Loggia was a native of Staten Island, born to Italian immigrants. He received a football scholarship to Wagner College and transferred to the University of Missouri. After serving two years in the U.S. Army, he began classes with Stella Adler and at the Actors Studio.

“He loved being an actor,” his widow told Variety. “He used to say that he never had to work. He never had to wait tables.”

“I loved Bob like a father,” Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns told Variety. “I will miss him tremendously.”

He broke into the entertainment business performing in stage plays in New York. His first film credit came in 1957 in the noirish “The Garment Jungle.” His first TV credits came in 1958 in “The Nine Lives of  Elfego Baca” in a series of Walt Disney TV shows.

Loggia’s TV credits included “The Untouchables,” “Columbo,” “Gunsmoke,” “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea,” “The Big Valley,” “Rawhide,” “Little House on the Prairie,” “Starsky and Hutch,”  “Charlie’s Angels,” “Magnum, P.I.,” “Kojak,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “The Bionic Woman,” “Frasier” and “Monk.”

His other film roles include “Revenge of the Pink Panther,” “Trail of the Pink Panther,” “Curse of the Pink Panther,” “Over The Top,” “Necessary Roughness,” “Return to Me” and “Armed and Dangerous.”

Loggia is survived by his widow; three children, Tracy, John and Kristina, and a stepchild, Cynthia.

His family has asked that donations be made to the Motion Picture and Television Fund. Loggia was an active supporter of the fund.

Funeral services will be private.

All Men Celebrate International Men’s Day on 19th November

Its very interesting when we think about it. How many of you knew that there is an “official” day such as International Men’s Day? And how many of you “men” knew its on today, 19th of November?

I bet that very few.

At least half of the population would know that there is an International Women’s Day on 8th of March, International Children’s Day 1st of June, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, probably even Granny’s Day and so on…Of course, when it comes and hits the 8th March, the Women’s Day which everybody knows about, there’s still a big number of furious men shouting, “When will be the men’s day!” without knowing that there actually is one!

International Women’s Day is on 8 March: 24 hours (of the 8,760 annually available) set aside to celebrate women and all of their achievements. And people get furious about it.

Surely, you might think, you could only be cross about it because that definitely isn’t enough time to celebrate the achievements of over than 50% of the population. But no.

On Twitter, at least, every 8 March thousands of men (and the occasional woman) tweet something along the lines of: “International Women’s Day? So when’s International Men’s Day?”

This churlish response is supposed to make us consider the massive inequality and sexism of there being a whole day dedicated to women, because there would never be a day like that to venerate men. It wouldn’t be allowed. Because of political correctness gone mad. You’d be laughed off the planet if you dared to suggest such a thing in this day and age. So you can see why these anti-sexist warriors are up in arms …

Except there is an International Men’s Day. It’s today. I hope that answers your question, guys.

I love the fact that the kind of cheese-helmets who feel the need to question the concept of International Women’s Day don’t even know there is already a day for men (an official one, rather than the regular days where they get more pay and power and privilege). I love it when people try to manufacture an injustice out of a position of clear superiority.

It’s all so transparently self-centred. It’s the impulse that drives your kids on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day to whine: “When will there be a Children’s Day?” Though at least the children have the excuse of being children and thus naturally self-obsessed and unable to spot that the world pretty much revolves around them already. But delightfully (and to keep this analogy spot on), there actually is an International Children’s Day. It’s on 1 June.

That won’t assuage your complaining spawn, of course. Because, like the grownups questioning International Women’s Day, they are probably asking: “When will I get someone to wait on me and bring me breakfast in bed and let me put my feet up and watch the telly? When will that happen? You know, apart from every single fucking day.” These people must be furious every day that isn’t their own birthday. “Why aren’t I getting any presents?”

So for the last two International Women’s Days I have tried to highlight this stupidity. I have got up early, logged on to Twitter and searched for the phrase “International Men’s Day”, found every single person who has tweeted the question and responded to them all individually: “It’s 19 November.”

So all men let’s celebrate 19th of November as International Men’s day!
