Live clip of my "Concert For Unity" featuring an interlude between myself & friend/dancer Careesah, which led into my next song. The beauty & grace of Bellydance fused with the passion & fire of Flamenco. Two beautiful cultures embodied in my music! In Flamenco we play the castanets and in middle eastern Bellydance the zills, very similiar percussive instruments. The arm movements or "braceos" and the hand posturing of Flamenco is likewise very similiar to Bellydance as they greatly influenced eachother. These two dances are fundamentally joined at their core and "heart" like a perfect marriage and I enthusiastically continue to study both

Instructions: Simply cut up 4 or 5 ping pong balls and stick them into 1 ping pong ball with a hole in the top. Then, stick a fuse in the hole and have it stick out (I took a fuse from a firework). I also stuck a piece of a straw into the hole (this is optional). I did that so that oxygen would get into bomb and so that it can fill up the hole so all the pieces wouldn't fall out. Lastly, you MUST wrap everything in electrical tape (leave a bit of room around the fuse or else the fuse will blow out). Hope you enjoy and have fun!

The skeleton of the elephant has been greatly influenced by the tremendous mass it must support. Incredibly, it weighs about 16.5 percent of an elephant´s total weight. As a comparison, cattle have a skeletal structure that only weights about 10 percent of the total weight. The backbone is the mechanism by which soft tissues are 'hung', consisting of sturdy vertebrae with high, strong neural spines in the chest (thoracic) area. Similar to Man, the elephant has an almost vertical pelvis that is greatly expanded. This influenced the prime reasons why it is difficult for an untrained eye in the past to know the sex of a particular elephant; the genital organs in the male are inside the body, and the female´s genitals are outside the body but are difficult to spot from the rear. The ribs extend along most of the backbone and form an enormous barrel-shaped cage. The limbs are composed of segments in direct line with one another resulting in a rigid pillar of support for the huge mass of the elephant: it is as though an elephant is walking on four thick and upright pillars, which are long in the upper segment and short in the lower. Also, the majority of the marrow cavities in the leg bones have been replaced with a spongy bone aiding in the legs great strength and relatively light weight. As in all mammals, elephants have seven neck vertebrae. Unlike other herbivores, the elephants vertebrae evolved to have fused and relatively flat discs, which are able to handle the weight of the elephant´s tusks and head.

Song: "The Difference Between Old and New Metal"
The era of metal's mainstream dominance in North America came to an end in the early 1990s with the emergence of Nirvana and other grunge bands, signaling the popular breakthrough of alternative rock. Grunge acts were influenced by the heavy metal sound, but rejected the excesses of the more popular metal bands, such as their "flashy and virtuosic solos" and "appearance-driven" MTV orientation.
Glam metal fell out of favor due not only to the success of grunge, but also because of the growing popularity of the more aggressive sound typified by Metallica and the post-thrash groove metal of Pantera and White Zombie. A few new, unambiguously metal bands had commercial success during the first half of the decade—Pantera's Far Beyond Driven topped the Billboard chart in 1994—but, "In the dull eyes of the mainstream, metal was dead." Some bands tried to adapt to the new musical landscape. Metallica revamped its image: the band members cut their hair and, in 1996, headlined the alternative musical festival Lollapalooza founded by Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell. While this prompted a backlash among some long-time fans, Metallica remained one of the most successful bands in the world into the new century
Like Jane's Addiction, many of the most popular early 1990s groups with roots in heavy metal fall under the umbrella term "alternative metal." The label was applied to a wide spectrum of acts that fused metal with different styles, not all associated with alternative rock. Acts labeled alternative metal included the Seattle grunge scene's Alice in Chains and groups drawing on multiple styles: Faith No More combined their alternative rock sound with punk, funk, metal, and hip hop; Primus joined elements of funk, punk, thrash metal, and experimental music. Tool mixed metal and progressive rock; Ministry began incorporating metal into its industrial sound; and Marilyn Manson went down a similar route, while also employing shock effects of the sort popularized by Alice Cooper. Alternative metal artists, though they did not represent a cohesive scene, were united by their willingness to experiment with the metal genre and their rejection of glam metal aesthetics (with the stagecraft of Marilyn Manson and White Zombie—also identified with alt-metal—significant, if partial, exceptions). Alternative metal's mix of styles and sounds represented "the colorful results of metal opening up to face the outside world."
In the mid- and late 1990s came a new wave of U.S. metal groups inspired by the alternative metal bands and their mix of genres. Dubbed "nu metal," bands such as P.O.D., Korn, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, and Linkin Park incorporated elements ranging from death metal to hip hop, often including DJs and rap-style vocals. The mix demonstrated that "pancultural metal could pay off." Nu metal gained mainstream success through heavy MTV rotation and Ozzy Osbourne's 1996 introduction of Ozzfest, which led the media to talk of a resurgence of heavy metal. That year, Korn released Life Is Peachy, the first nu metal album to reach the top 10; two years later, the band's Follow the Leader hit number 1. In 1999, Billboard noted that there were more than 500 specialty metal radio shows in the U.S., nearly three times as many as ten years before. While nu metal was widely popular early in the 2000s, traditional metal fans did not fully embrace the style. By early 2003, the movement had clearly passed its peak, though several nu metal acts, as well as bands with related styles, such as System of a Down, retained substantial followings.
