For the Love of Elvis & Old Time Rock & Roll

  Kiss Away by Ronnie Dove.  Ronnie Dove was all over the Top 40 back in the 60’s. He was one of my perennial favorites.  I remember fishing with my father and brother while listening to Ronnie as we fished. This Old Heart of Mine by the Isley Brothers.  Had to include this song since […]

This event has been teased for months and my trip had been planned for weeks. We brought snacks, paid for tickets ahead of time, and were thoroughly pumped […]

Greetings everyone! This is Sandalphon. Today, I’d like to speak about music. Why is it that almost everyone is drawn to some kind of music? Remember, your entire universe was manifested from extremely subtle vibrations which then became subtle sound vibrations. When you listen to music, it is a very subtle reminder of the essence […]

The Movie My Life

In director James Wan’s latest, Jason Momoa is Aurthur, a.k.a Aquaman, a man who reluctantly begins a journey to take his rightful place as heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis and become a hero to the world. Considering how DC Comics’ recent films have turned out, Wonder Woman (2017) being an exception; as much […]

Under a Grey Sky

The parks of a city reflect their surroundings, not so much in how they look but in who can be found wandering their pathways or lounging on their green spaces. In Berlin, many of the parks were created with the expansion of the city – ‘People’s Parks’ intended as a patch of nature, a communal […]

I’ve had a bit of a hiatus on dating apps and just been focusing on myself, not having notifications pinging up every minute on my phone has actually been a welcome break and cleared my head to channel the right kind of energy and focus on other things. I don’t really have the right mindset […]

Music and Macarons

Before you start: Almost anything can be considered an art form, in my opinion (yes, even something like grating cheese…who knows, maybe there’s some special techniques or super fancy graters out there. Maybe there’s even some secret club for it! Oh no…I think I’ve said too much now…). To me, art is about honing technique […]

Jaden Smith shows he’s open to change on Watch Me Remix Back in October of 2017, Jaden Smith proved himself effective at channeling aggressivity in his music. Not only was the switch-up a seamless one, but it’s been his calling card ever since. Fast forward to March the 22nd, 2019, and lo and behold: Jaden […]

The Irish Sun
THE gruelling TV show is back with a host of stars being put through their paces. The famous faces will be put to the test in the celeb edition all in the name of charity. Here’s what you need to know… Twelve celebs are being put through their paces for charity Who’s in the cast of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins for SU2C? Twelve celebs will be battling it out on the Stand Up To Cancer edition of the hit show. Chief Instructor Ant Middleton will be overseeing the stars as they swap their glitzy lifestyles to get down and dirty on an intensive seven-day course. Speaking about the show he said: “Celebrities go through their lives showing the public a front and face they want them to see, but this process stripped all that away. “Importantly, they’ve turned up to raise money for SU2C, but also to learn something about themselves by facing extreme experiences.” Here’s who you can expect to see on the show: Victoria Pendleton Victoria, 37, will no doubt be hoping her athletic prowess will put her in good stead during the seven-day course. The Olympic gold-winning cyclist has signed up for the task but this isn’t the first time she’s taken part in a gruelling challenge. The star was left battling depression after failing to climb to the top of Mount Everest. Camilla Thurlow Love Island babe Camilla Thurlow isn’t afraid of the challenge Camilla, 29, may have risen to fame during her 2017 stint in the Love Island villa but she’s tougher than she looks. Before her time on the hit show she was in the field of Explosive Ordnance Disposal. That means she travelled to war-torn countries to safely detonate bombs that had been left in zones of conflict. Hopefully she can transfer some of those skills to the challenge. Wayne Bridge Wayne, 38, is a retired footballer who played for England 36 times, scoring one goal against Iceland in 2004. And he’s not afraid of a challenge – In March 2018 he won his Sport Relief boxing bout with Spencer Matthews. He also went back to basics in the jungle in series 16 of I’m A Celeb in 2016. Jeremy Irvine War Horse actor Jeremy, 28, isn’t afraid to take on a challenge – he once lost two stone to play a waterboarding victim in The Railway Man. And in his latest role the Mamma Mia star will be a far cry away from singing ABBA songs on an idyllic Greek Island. AJ Odudu The 31-year-old telly host is best known for presenting Big Brother’s Bit on the Side alongside Emma Willis and Rylan Clark. She currently hosts Trending Live! alongside Strictly star Vick Hope and Jimmy Hill. Jeff Brazier Jeff signed up to the show in honour of the late mother of his children Jade Goody Jeff is taking on the challenge in aid of Stand Up To Cancer to honour the late mother of his children Jade Goody on the tenth anniversary of her death. The telly presenter  is going on TV’s most difficult reality show, SAS: Who Dares Wins to pay tribute to the Big Brother star who died of cervical cancer at the age of 27 in 2009. Heather Fisher The rugby union and rugby sevens player will hope that her physical fitness will help her tackle the challenges ahead. Heather has represented England in two Women’s Rugby World Cups – even just missing out on an Olympic Bronze to Canada – and is a force to be reckoned with on the pitch. But how will she fare during the gruelling task ahead of her? Ben Foden Fellow rugby star Ben, 33 – and former husband of The Saturdays’ Una Healy – has been capped for England 34 times since 2009. He has played for England in both the Six Nations and World Championship. He’s scored 35 points in total for England. Foden has signed up with US team Rugby United New York for the 2019 season. Louise Mensch Louise, 47, is a former Conservative MP who now lives in New York with her music manager hubbie Peter Mensch. The former politican may have been able to handle her own in Parliament but how will she fare against the notoriously tough Ant Middleton? Andrea McLean Andrea McLean is up to the challenge Andrea, 49, will be swapping Loose Women for some hard training. The presenter and co-anchor of the hit show won’t have the panel to hide behind as she steps up to the challenge. Dev Griffin Dev, 34, is best known for helping to wake up the nation with funny chat and funky tunes on BBC Radio 1’s weekend breakfast show. The radio star has competed in Celebrity MasterChef so hopefully his culinary skills will help him during the seven day course. Sam Thompson Sam is swapping the King’s Road for something a little more gritty Sam is a reality TV star who joined Made In Chelsea during the sixth series, back in 2013. He has landed a string of reality TV show appearances – though none like SAS. He came third in the 2017 series of Celebrity Big Brother and has appeared in Celebs Go Dating twice. When is it on? Unfortunately Channel 4 are yet to confirm an exact air date for the hotly-anticipated show. However filming took place last September so we can expect that it will be on our screens soon. The regular show usually airs at 9pm on Sundays so it’s likely that the celeb version will follow the same format. [article-rail-topic title=”More on TV Explainers” term_id=”11032″ posts_number=”6″ /] What will the celebs have to do? As per the usual show Ant Middleton put recruits through the “ultimate” test of their physical and psychological resilience with this edition’s theme being Winter Warfare. And so gruelling was the task at hand that there were reports of snowflake celebs being put off by the tough conditions. In September 2018, a telly source said: “Stars know this isn’t a warm and fuzzy show, it’s physically and emotionally gurelling and some are scared of being humiliated on TV.” Ant said: “This isn’t I’m a Celebrity or Celebrity Big Brother — it’s the real deal. “It will be the most revealing and ultimately rewarding process they’ve ever undertaken.” [bc_video video_id=”6000402645001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”SAS: Who Dares Wins contestant Louise Gabbitas proves herself as on of the strongest throughout the course”]
