Sex And The City Actor Marries Long-term Partner In Destination Wedding Ceremony Held In Hawaii

Chris Noth is famous for playing the role of the commitment-phobic Mr Big in Sex and the City and in real life it appears he was also not ready to commit for a number of years.

However, the 57-year-old actor has finally tied the knot to his long-term girlfriend, Tara Wilson, after they became the latest couple to choose weddings abroad over traditional ceremonies at home.

The couple got married on 6th April, 2012 in a sunset ceremony on the island of Maui in Hawaii in front of an intimate gathering of close family and friends.

Their four-year-old son, Orion, was the ring bearer and the ceremony took place at a luxurious oceanfront estate on Makena Beach which is a popular spot for destination weddings.

An insider said: Chris and Tara married in the most romantic way possible. Tara was beaming, and Chris had a smile on his face the entire time.

The 30-year-old bride wore a sleeveless white dress with a beautiful white veil and the groom wore a double-breasted charcoal suit.
The ceremony was carried out by a local priest and the wedding party celebrated the marriage with a reception at the nearby award-winning Gannons restaurant.

A source commented: Guests dined on crab cake with a sweet chilli sauce, baby romaine lettuce, macadamia-crusted island fish with mango ginger beurre blanc and braised short ribs with mashed potatoes.

The newlyweds then headed to the Four Seasons Maui hotel for their honeymoon.

Noth met Wilson in 2002 when she was working in his bar, The Cutting Room in New York. In 2008, they had their son Orion and the couple got engaged in October 2009.

Like many other celebrities who choose weddings abroad, the pair opted for a small, private and romantic ceremony in Hawaii.
Hawaii is a popular destination for couples getting married abroad and the collection of stunning islands offer white sand beaches, turquoise ocean waters, luxury hotels and resorts, delicious cuisine and a tropical climate.

As more engaged couples from all over the world pick exotic locations for their nuptials, popular destinations for tropical weddings include the Caribbean, the Maldives and the Seychelles, Sri Lanka, Hawaii, Mexico, and Florida.

1. Select your tools wisely. Clean your hands before starting your drawing. The paper you use for your work should be of good quality. Low grade, off colored paper will make your drawing look pale.

3. Learn to draw facial features and hand carefully. Hands are more difficult. Experts often judge a person’s drawing ability from how well he can draw human hands. So practice drawing hands with care.

4. Study about basic forms and proportions of human body. Learn about basics of human anatomy and various ratios of human figures.

As a cartoon creator you will have certain liberties, you do not need to bind yourself with strict body proportions rules. You can draw four fingered (Thumb + Three) hand that makes your work a bit easier.

But one challenge you will face while drawing cartoons –cartoon characters needs to be more expressive and certainly you have to create this expressiveness with some lines drawn with your pencil.

Keep in mind that three areas of human face that play major role to express emotions are-

1. Eyelids (wide open, half closed, almost fully closed etc.),

2. Eyebrows (raised, normal, crooked etc.) and

3. Lips (forming downward bow, upward bow etc.).

Other than these you can also use, hair (properly combed or ruffled), garments (well kept or torn) to create characters that tells a story.

Utilizing A Food Photographer To Get The Shots You Need For Your Business

Because improvements in technology have made it so that just about everyone has use of a camera, it seems like many camera owners see themselves as photographers, but when you need professional work done, such as food photography, it’s a good idea to hire someone who is highly experienced in food photography. If you spend any amount of time online on social media sites, blogs or forums, you’ve probably seen many individuals post food photos for others to see. You may have even been compelled to share your own photos. There is a little bit of a vicarious pleasure to be gained from checking out photos of food. Thanks to cooking television channels and celebrity chefs, there are various people who are very interested in reading food reviews, reading cooking websites, thumbing through the best cooking magazines or collecting the newest and greatest cookbooks, and this means that there’s plenty of room for food photographers to make a place for themselves. As with any photography, there are many ways in which a photographer can make an image of food interesting, enticing and even entertaining.

Just like a photographer who concentrates on portrait photography uses different backgrounds, layouts and other ways to make their subject’s photo more interesting, someone who is very skilled in food photography does the same with food. A food’s appearance can transform quickly in minutes, depending on what type of food it is, and it’s essential that a food photographer knows how to take photos of the food while it looks best. In a number of cases, a photographer may need to employ a number of techniques to make the food remain looking good and fresh for longer than it generally does on its own so that great photos can be taken.

The goal of the photograph will often determine the type of image that you’ll want to have taken. To find a good food photographer that will meet your needs best, you will need to go through their photography portfolio to find out whether they take the type of photos that you need. If you are a restaurant owner, as an example, you will want full dishes to be shot. Let’s say you sell food that you grow, it is likely that you will need to have professional photographs of the food you grow in it’s natural form. A professional food photographer knows how to create food layouts that will best show off the food. If the photographer typically spends most of their hands-on time with their camera, in most instances they will have staff members that do the setting up for them.

Displaying food in interesting ways is what is known as the art of food styling. Food styling consists of placing foods on a plate in a way that the foods coordinate with their surroundings in the way of shapes, colors or textures. Additionally, it may incorporate knowing how to effectively set up the food in interesting and balanced ways. This can involve what type of plate is made use of, the size of the plate, and where the food is placed. The food might be presented against a background or on a cloth-covered table. Somebody who is highly skilled in this will know just what things will make the best impact in a photograph so that food will look its very best and as tempting as is possible.

Although it is not necessary, choosing a photographer who loves food can have its benefits. Food can engender significant amounts of passion in individuals. How often do you hear people fervently declaring how much they “love” a certain food, a certain dish or a particular restaurant? A photographer who is interested in the whole process of making great dishes and who is involved and interested in how the subject of the photograph they are going to take was created can bring an extra element of perception and passion to a project.

Psycho Realm Lyrics An Early Example Of Horror Rap

Many students of 90s hip hop could tell you about hip hop super group Psycho Realm off the top of their heads. Those same people would probably tell you, that while Psycho Realm lyrics do not epitomize horror rap values, Psycho Realms lyrics had enough influence on Psychopathic Records artists Insane Clown Posse for them to invite their Californian rap pals on tour.

But even though Psycho Realm lyrics to not embody what horror rap is known for, at least as far as Psychopathic Records is concerned, that doesnt mean Psycho Realms couldnt have had another type of impact on horror rap Gods Insane Clown Posse. And to say that Psycho Realm lyrics did have an impact on these legendary horror rappers would be quite the compliment, because Insane Clown Posse even owns their own labelPsychopathic Records–full of other talented horror rap artists. To say they know what theyre doing would be an understatement.

The similarity of Psycho Realm lyrics and Insane Clown Posse lyrics that sticks out the most to me has nothing to do with their content; instead, the delivery of Psycho Realms lyrics and the delivery of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dopes horror rap lyrics are on the same wave length. Both are tight, rhythmic, and dropped with intensity. Listen to Psycho Realms lyrics on “Stone Garden” and compare them to Insane Clown Posses lyrical delivery on “Hokus Pokus” (released on Great Milenko through Psychopathic Records) and youll see what I mean.

So theres the delivery comparison. And while there may be more to discuss in that realm of things, perhaps there is some overlap when it comes to the substance of Psycho Realms lyrics and the meaning of lyrics that come from the mouths of Psychopathic Records artists. Consider this snippet of Psycho Realm lyrics from “Stone Garden”:

Were on our way to the stone garden,
End of the road where everybody goes but not forgotten,
Frames all rotten souls travel to unravel,
Other worlds and big cloud castles

Any Juggalo or Juggalette can note similarities in this song and Psychopathic Records horror rap music, specifically that of ICP, right away. For one, theyre talking about the after life, and we all know how prominent of a theme Hell and Heaven are in Psychopathic Records songs. ICP even has Jokers cards dedicated to them. This theme is not only true for ICP, but for other Psychopathic Records artists too.

Secondly, these Psycho Realm lyrics discuss departing souls. Souls that travel happen to be a lyrical staple for Psychopathic Records artists. I dont know if theres a closer cousin to ICPs horror rap mythology about the Dark Carnival, where souls wait in limbo to find out if theyll be traveling to heaven or hell.

How To Build An Effective Music Composer’s Website

A composer’s website is their portal to the rest of the world. A website serves to keep your audience up to date on your work, act as your all-purpose 24/7 representative, and stores valuable media such as recordings, photographs, and biographical information for programming and press outlets. Having a quality website is essential to building your music career in an ever growing e-world. Here are a few important things to consider when building your site:

1. Choose a clean-cut, easy to navigate design for your site that allows visitors to easily learn about you and your music.

2. Display your activity by posting dates of recent and upcoming performances of your work.

3. Make sure your catalog always contains your most recently completed work. This is the most effective way to let performers find works for their instrument.

4. Provide both a brief and full biography on separate pages detailing people you’ve worked with, press clippings, etc. You’ll be surprised how often a short biography these come in handy.

5. Have at least three excerpts of music for visitors to listen to in an accessible format such as a high quality mp3.

6. Social networking sites are active arenas of musical activity so post links in profiles on such sites. Participate in the action!

7. Use a professional sounding contact address that is easy to remember. Get rid of that old guitarguru 44 @ yahoo.com email address you’ve probably had since you were 12 and use your business name or formal name.

A website that meets the guidelines mentioned above will undoubtedly boost your career. As a final note however, remember that while your website’s goal is to portray you as a pro in the field don’t be afraid to show a bit of your stellar personality. Professionalism is great, but you are most likely to be successful if you also interest people in a personal way.

Good luck!

Bajo Sextos Nortena Musical Instrument

The Spanish words for “sixth bass” are Bajo Sextos. It is the name for a special type of musical instrument popular in a relatively small geographical area. The twelve string guitar is a strong component of musical groups formed and prevalent in the area of northern Mexico and southern Texas. It comes in both acoustic and electric forms.

The guitar-like instrument has twelve strings. They are arranged in six double courses. The strings are tuned from the lowest string to the highest string to the notes E, A, D, G, C and F respectively.

From the mid 1950s northern Mexican music has been listened to and enjoyed by Mexicans and Anglos alike. The music goes by several different names, musica mexicana-tejana and conjunto are the most common. The music genre is also known as Tex-Mex, but this is not totally accurate, since the nortena music predated conjunto.

Conjunto ensembles use the bajo to provide the low and rhythmic base line for the music. It enhances the musical line performed by the other instruments. The instrument also is used to carry the chord changes. The instrument is used to enhance other musical groups, but it is best known in the musical genre of nortena and conjunto.

Sextos instruments were originally used in a limited part of the Western Hemisphere. This means that the demand for the guitar might be somewhat limited too. Other stringed instruments such as guitars and banjos are well known. This instrument is not. The construction of a bajo gives you the variety of woods and finishes that are nothing but quality. The back and sides might be made of Indian rosewood, mahogany or cedar. The bridge and fingerboard is often made of rosewood. The top is typically cedar, but more exotic woods are found in some models.

The finish of the instruments is beautiful. The thickness of such instruments might vary somewhat, so the player can choose the instrument that is most comfortable. Many of such specialized guitars are finished with a decorative motif. Handcrafting is an art for those who create the instruments. Those bajos are highly prized.

For the serious performer who wants to be part of a quality group playing nortena music, the bajo sextos is almost a must. It is needed to provide a lower component to the melody and to move the chord changes along during the piece. The best made instruments are attractive to look at without being flashy and provide a sound that is unparalleled.

What Are Dramas

Drama is one of the types of literature that has gained popularity during the years. This form of entertainment has not lost its patronage or vigor and continues to remain popular, despite all the technology involved in a film-making. In fact, it is rightly said that the magic of drama is more than the representation of fiction via performance.

A drama is ideally enacted in a theater, open or closed, and the performances are by actors, live, before an audience that either sits around or before the stage. A single drama is a collaborative effort. The cumulative efforts are pooled for the various modes of production, flow of the text and research in the form of literature adopted.

Various forms of dramas

Indian Drama

Folk theatre and dramatics can be traced to the religious ritualism of the Vedic peoples in the 2nd millennium BC. This folk theatre of the misty past was mixed with dance, food, ritualism, plus a depiction of events from daily life. The Ramayana and Mahabharata can be considered the first recognized plays that originated in India. These epics provided the inspiration to the earliest Indian dramatists and they do it even today. Indian dramatists such as Bhasa in the second century BC wrote plays that were heavily inspired by the Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Japanese Drama

Japan, after a long period of civil wars and political disarray, was unified and at peace primarily due to shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu (1600-1668). The first form of theatre to flourish was Ningy? j?ruri (commonly referred to as Bunraku). The founder of and main contributor to Ningy? j?ruri, Chikamatsu Monzaemon (1653-1725), turned his form of theatre into a true art form.

Neoclassical theatre

Neoclassicism was the dominant form of theatre in the eighteenth century. It demanded decorum and rigorous adherence to the classical unities. Neoclassical theatre as well as the time period is characterized by its grandiosity. The costumes and scenery were intricate and elaborate. The acting is characterized by large gestures and melodrama.

Southeast Asian theatre
Theatre in Southeast Asia was mostly influenced by Indian theatre. In Thailand, it has been a tradition from the middle Ages to stage plays based on plots drawn from Indian epics. In particular, the theatrical version of Thailand’s national epic Ramakien, a version of the Indian Ramayana, remains popular in Thailand even today.

How Can Young Preteen Models Plan And Develop A Successful Modeling Career

In order to develop a successful modeling career for young preteen models, you need to have two sets of accomplishments one of by nature, and the other of by nurture. The natural accomplishments you need only prune and foster. Those by nurture you need to imbibe and inculcate by regular actions and habits. It is the confluence of these twin streams of accomplishments that builds up the model. That is, if you are under the impression that Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Kathy Ireland, Christy Turlington, Milla Jovovich, Iman, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford or Elle Macpherson rose to fame and glory all of a sudden or out of sheer luck, your are the wrong way. In a sense, they virtually sculpted their career with meticulous precision and aplomb.

As I have said, to develop a successful modeling career for young preteen models, you should be attuned to the demands of the profession by your nature and nurture. By nature I mean your inborn accomplishments like your general physical attributes such as your height, body shape, facial expression, colour of the eye, skin, hair, etc. As a primary step, you should go through the images of leading models regionally and internationally. If you are confident that by physical attributes and appearance you have possibilities of emerging as a model, you can concentrate on how to nurture your natural accomplishments. In order to nurture your natural accomplishments, you need to stick to a systematic routine. You have to follow a balanced diet suitable for a model figure. Hence, you will have to consult an experienced and professional dietician-cum-health specialist.

An essential requirement to develop a successful modeling career for young is to keep yourself abreast of the latest developments and trends in the modeling industry across the world. You can glean and garner sufficient feedback from Internet. Equally, you can look into the latest fashion and modeling print media publications. Get informed about the profile and professional experiences of the leading models of the time. Alongside, you need to associate with a vibrant and professionally active and ambitious modeling agency. Also, you should create a classic modeling portfolio for you. Your portfolio should incorporate a collection of your latest snaps. The snaps should be of the very best quality showcasing your unique modeling accomplishments. The photos should be professionally produced through the best professional photographer available. For the photo session you should look for the best and uniquely striking costumes and poses. Also, you should engage a well experienced makeup artist for the photo session. And you should set you profile incorporating your personal statistics and achievements and accomplishments in the modeling field.
