Pixar Brings it’s Animated Movies to Life with Studio Music




Find people with high expectations and a low tolerance for excuses. They’ll have higher expectations for you than you have for yourself. Don’t flatter yourself that this has much to do with you – this is just who they are. Don’t look for “nice” in these relationships. Look for trust.

Be fearless in front of them with your ideas as many times as they’ll let you

Beauty Dust is very pretty to look at and it tastes like nothing, which is great. Here is what it’s supposed to do: This ancient empiric formula expands beauty through alchemizing elements legendary for their youth preserving, fortifying and tonifying qualities. Glowing supple skin, lustrous shiny hair and twinkling bright eyes are holistically bestowed from the inside out.


I actually first read this as alkalizing meaning effecting pH level, and I was like, OK I guess I understand how that could positively effect your body, but alchemizing means turning elements to gold basically through magic. That lead me to research each ingredient because I know alchemy is not actually happening in my body when I eat this, since alchemy is not real.

In addition to loving beauty and taking care of myself, I also love opening people minds to other paths of self-care, and good marketing and I can honestly say that I use and personally love this product but I’m not sure for which reason.

I think it made me think about it more and really consider why I was choosing to add this to my routine

It poses an interesting question for me on the wellness category – will people be willing to buy in, or does eating something change your “sniff” test on the believe-ability of the claims?

The color is very long lasting and they have an interesting texture that’s like a powder and a cream but neither really. They’re made with pure pigments and oils and will never melt with the warmth of your skin because they don’t contain any waxes. You can literally use them for anything – obviously as eye shadow and liner, but the light shade is a great highlighter, and the red can be used for lip or blush with a little balm.


There’s also a little pouch to store the rollerballs, and a card with different inspirations as to how to blend them on your skin – but it’s foolproof. You can’t make a mess if you mix them all up.

Badger Beard Balm is perfect for the bearded gents in your life (is this everyone? beards are so trending). It is filled with good things such as vitamins A, D, E & F to keep his beard healthy, thicker and cleaner, as well as helping to relieve itchiness as it soothes the skin under the hair.

If you’re looking to get rid of this beard, maybe this is not the right angle for your gifting

Further, no one wants to cuddle with a dirty beard – who knows, maybe you already are and are dying for a nice way to help this problem of yours his. Beard Wash made by Beard Buddy. Started in 2011 in California, all Beard Buddy products are hand crafted by beards for beards. Both founders have large beards of their own to tame, and wanted to do this with organic products – kudos, and cuddles, to them.

2023: Texas Grand Jury Indicts Patrick Clark In Fatal Shooting Of Rapper Takeoff




HOUSTON — According to court documents, the guy accused of murdering Migos artist Takeoff last year at a Houston bowling alley has been indicted.

When a grand jury in Houston indicted him on Thursday, Patrick Xavier Clark was out on $1 million bail.

One of Clark’s lawyers, Letitia Quinones-Hollins, stated that the charge was no surprise to her client.

“When we get inside a courtroom and in front of a jury, where we will be able to put on our evidence and cross-examine the state’s witnesses… we expect the jury will come back with a verdict of not guilty,” Quinones-Hollins said in a statement on Thursday.

When more than 30 people were leaving a private party at the bowling alley at 2:30 a.m. on November 1, Takeoff was shot in the head and back. The shooting, according to authorities in Houston, was sparked by a dispute over a “lucrative” game of dice outside the bowling alley, but the rapper, who was only 28 years old at the time, was not participating and was “an innocent bystander.”


DJ and club promoter Patrick, 33, was taken into custody on December 1.

Officials claim CCTV footage proves Clark had a wine bottle in his hand when he fired his weapon. His identity was established through fingerprints discovered on the bottle. In addition, authorities said that FBI informants placed Clark at the shooting scene.

After Clark’s arrest, prosecutors claimed he had researched how to use bogus airline tickets to get an expedited passport online in an attempt to leave the country.


After the incident, Quinones-Hollins said Clark had no intention of leaving the country.

Takeoff joined his uncle Quavo, and cousin Offset to form the Grammy-nominated rap group Migos. Takeoff was born Kirsnick Khari Ball.

The next court date for Clark is August 23.

Tina Turner, ‘Queen Of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ , Dies At 83




NEW YORK – Tina Turner, the irresistible singer and stage performer who paired with her husband Ike Turner for a spectacular run of smash singles and live shows in the 1960s and ’70s, and who survived her horrific marriage to triumph in middle life with the chart-topping “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” has died at the age of 83.

According to her management, Turner died Wednesday at her home in Küsnacht, near Zurich, following a protracted illness. She gained Swiss citizenship a decade ago.

Few celebrities have traveled as far and overcome as much as Anna Mae Bullock, born in a segregated Tennessee hospital and lived her latter years on a 260,000 square foot house on Lake Zurich. She became a superstar on her own in her 40s, when most of her peers were on their way down, despite being physically beaten, emotionally traumatized, and financially destroyed by her 20-year relationship with Ike Turner, and remained a top concert draw for years following.

“How do we say goodbye to a woman who took ownership of her pain and trauma and used it to help change the world?” According to Angela Bassett, who played Turner in the 1993 biopic “What’s Love Got to Do With It,”

“Through her bravery in telling her story, her commitment to staying the course in her life, no matter the cost, and her determination to carve out a space in rock and roll for herself and others who look like her, Tina Turner demonstrated to those who lived in fear what a beautiful future filled with love, compassion, and freedom should look like.”


Turner died Wednesday at her home in Küsnacht, near Zurich, following a protracted illness.

The “Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll” was one of the world’s most popular entertainers, with fans ranging from Mick Jagger to Beyoncé to Mariah Carey. She was known for a core of pop, rock, and rhythm and blues favorites: “Proud Mary,” “Nutbush City Limits,” “River Deep, Mountain High,” and the hits she had in the ’80s, including “What’s Love Got to Do with It,” ”

Her rumbling contralto that could smolder or burst, striking smile and prominent cheekbones, a palette of wigs, and muscular, quick-stepping legs were all hallmarks. She sold over 150 million records worldwide, won 12 Grammys, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Ike in 1991 (and on her own in 2021), and was honored at the Kennedy Centre in 2005 with Beyoncé and Oprah Winfrey among those honoring her. In 2021, her life became the subject of a film, a Broadway musical, and an HBO documentary, which she dubbed her public farewell.

Turner has two sons: Craig, who he had with saxophonist Raymond Hill, and Ronald, who he had with Ike Turner. (Craig Turner was discovered dead in an apparent suicide in 2018). Tina Turner announced in her memoir “Tina Turner: My Love Story,” published later that year, that she had gotten a kidney transplant from her second husband, former EMI record executive Erwin Bach.

Turner’s life appeared to be an argument against marriage, but her life with Bach was a love tale Tina would not have imagined possible when she was younger. He picked her up at the airport when she traveled to Germany for record promotion in the mid-1980s. He was a decade her junior — “the prettiest face,” she claimed of him in the HBO documentary — and the desire was reciprocal. She married Bach in a civil ceremony in Switzerland in 2013.

“It’s that happiness that people talk about,” Turner said at the time, “when you wish for nothing, when you can finally take a deep breath and say, ‘Everything is good.'”

Garth Brooks Extends Sold-Out Las Vegas Residency With 2024 Dates



garth brooks

LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Garth Brooks, the country music legend, vows that no two shows in his new Las Vegas residency, which begins Thursday night, will be the same.

From the occasional special guest to a rotating cast of band members, Brooks promised fans in an interview hours before his inaugural show at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum that they would hear new songs for the first — and last — time at “Garth Brooks/Plus One.”

“We’re going to do stuff tonight that they’ll never hear again because it just didn’t work or we never finished it,” Brooks said with a grin to The Associated Press. “We’re going to get very personal tonight, so if you don’t want to get some mud on you, don’t come.” It’s going to become a little messy.”

Brooks also announced earlier that Caesars Palace had extended his residency with 18 more dates next year after tickets sold out rapidly when they went on sale in late 2022.

“When the 2023 shows went on sale, I felt extremely fortunate and blessed,” Brooks stated in a statement released early this morning. “Just the thought of doing this for another year makes me happier than words can express.”

Fans who missed out on tickets this year will have first access to the 2024 dates during a presale before they go on sale to the general public on May 31. The 2024 performances will take place between April and July.

Garth Brooks’ second Las Vegas residency follows a five-year tenure at the Wynn hotel-casino’s Encore Theatre.

Early 2000s construction of the Colosseum, which drew inspiration from ancient Roman architecture, served as the site of Celine Dion’s record-breaking residency. Some have regarded it as the home of the world’s best entertainers.

On Thursday, Brooks called it an honor to join a long list of musicians who have resided there, including Madonna, Cher, Mariah Carey, Elton John, and Adele. The theatre contains approximately 4,100 seats.

“A chance to play a residency is not something you pass up, especially in a place like this,” said the Country Music Hall of Fame singer and songwriter, who has two Grammys and is a seven-time Country Music Association “entertainer of the year.”

Brooks’ second Las Vegas residency follows a five-year tenure at the Wynn hotel-casino’s Encore Theatre, where he performed more than 180 events between 2009 and 2014.

According to him, the live band for “Garth Brooks/Plus One” distinguishes the new show from his Wynn residency, which included acoustic performances.

“This is pretty much dessert for an entertainer right here,” Brooks explained, “because you get to choose whatever song you want to sing and how you present it.”

Brooks recently finished his global Stadium Tour, which began in Indiana in 2018 and ended with a sold-out event in Dublin, Ireland, last September.
